Green is my favorite color.

If I had to pick a favorite color, without a question, it would be green.

It’s also conveniently associated with the environment, and I love “going green.”

Fontbonne is becoming "greener" via our Southwest Hall garden!

A recent holiday that just occurred was St. Patrick’s Day…a holiday that is conveniently very green.

The Fontbonne HES Department had a Student Food Demo that was St. Patrick’s Day-themed, which I really enjoyed.

Fontbonne Students showing us how to make various food dishes.

I was pretty excited about it.

The mashed potatoes were probably my favorite. I'm a big fan of potatoes.

Utilizing technology in the kitchen!

We even had dessert!

I was excited to win an attendance prize! This peeler will definitely come in handy for my own personal cooking.

And now a few gems from the Dogtown St. Patrick’s Parade. (For those of you who aren’t familiar with different St. Louis neighborhoods, Dogtown is considered the traditionally Irish neighborhood.)

We were excited to arrive at the parade.

I enjoyed looking at everyone's festive attire.

I spy a Kermit the Frog.

Let the parade begin!

There was some singin'...

There was some smilin'...

Fancy Irish parade floats...

There was some Irish dancin' of course...

"The Brady Bunch" was even there. ;)

Just your neighborhood leprechaun strolling along...

People handing out beads like crazy!

This is my friend, Ahmed, experiencing a St. Patrick's Day parade for the first time, since he's from Iraq.

Me, Ahmed, and fellow Fontbonne blogger Marielle after the parade festivities.

Peace, Love, & Lots of Green.
