March 17 Means Sweet 16

Happy Happy Birthday to my real life Four Leaf Clover.
Chelsea Victoria Carey turns 16 today!

It seems like yesterday when you were just learning to crawl...

And look at you now....

It's hard to believe this is the same girl who never wanted to
wear pink, called herself a "tomgirl" and thought barbies were a bore!

A gift from are a treasure.

On of my favorites memories will always be our Mother Daughter trip

to NYC for your 13th b-day!

True to your father's heritage you give new meaning to
the motto "The Fighting Irish"

Your passion for life is seen in everything you do...whether you are snowboarding,

playing sports

or just being the clown you love to be.

And while your birthday color will always be green...

this year I thought you needed a little blue to celebrate your 16th birthday.

Happy Birthday, sweet girl.

The Green Machine

From Ally's vintage iron bedframe to...
.Her green bedroom accents...

To my office accents....

And yes, to even my iron....the green machine is alive and well in the Carey household.



  1. Happy 16th Chelsea!!!

    You are a beauty just like your mama! Love all of the pretty green. She is a treasure Rose!!
