my fear of heights prevented me from kissing the blarney stone.

also, i sort of think that kissing something a million other people have also pressed their lips against is gross.

but….i enjoyed touring the castle!  and cork is clearly beautiful.  and green.  we like green.

Haha, yeah... I'm not so sure about kissing the blarney stone, but the castle is super cool!

I wouldn't have kissed the stone either, I mean that is just a coldsore or something waiting to be caught!

I've always wanted to go here! I loved Dublin, but I'm dying to see the Irish countryside.

I'm sorry, I just assumed the Blarney castle belonged to Barney's twin brother...

Oh my gosh. How appropriate that you're just chillN' in Ireland so close to St. Pattys! Lucky... (even though I do realize it was almost a month ago....still)

You were cracking me up with your leather pants comment on my blog. ha ha. The arms of that chair did look like his legs. (weird)

I hope you enjoy Easter weekend! It looks like you are seeing some of the prettiest places in the world.
