Cheers! Oh wait is St. Patrick's Day over!? I hope you had a fabulous time celebrating like the Irish do! Mine was great - much more low key than in years past but still fun.
I was dressed in my Irish gear and ready to go!
I went to my friend's house in Southie. I must admit that having friends who live in Southie is pretty great! Lynne and Brian sure know how to throw a party. Plenty of food and drinks (of course - it wouldn't be a St. Pat's Day party w/o lots of drinks!)
After plenty of eating and drinking we did manage to wander outside to watch some of the parade. In years past we've watched the whole thing but that is when it is a bit warmer out. Yesterday was FREEZING! I didn't last long - I need more drinks or more layers to stay out longer than 30 minutes!!
I wish I could capture a better visual of all the people in Southie. It was estimated that there were 600,000 people there yesterday! It is crazy. People (of all ages) are everywhere! And you really never know what to expect in Southie. . .
Now if I'm being completely honest. . . it really isn't the best parade. Shocking I know. You see your fair share of bands and bagpipers (my favorite)!
But you will also see your fair share of totally random! Like take for example, this big group of Star Wars people. Who knows!
You will also see many politicians, unions, Miss (everything), old cars, and a
few lot of drunk people!
It definitely is an experience. Always a good time but better when it is over 40 degrees!!
What did you do to celebrate?
Oh and just because this is one of my top 5 favorite pictures I've ever taken of my nieces. . .
This was in 2009 - Ella was just under a month old and Peyton was 16 months!
This is a 3 day work week for me. I'm SUPER excited about that. I'm even more excited to head to Dallas on Thursday. Looking forward to lots of sun and fun.
P.S. I'm ignoring the snow storm that is coming tomorrow.
