St. Patrick's Day But Not Really

I'm not a big fan of St. Patrick's Day.

It might be because I couldn't find any green funfetti cupcake mix {fail} or it might be because going out to super crowded bars with a lot of heavily intoxicated people isn't really my thing.

I'd rather do something like this

Even though having colored powder thrown in my face while I'm running around on a trail isn't my idea of a whole lot of fun, either. I'm also pretty sure that there is still green stuff on my GPS watch and my tennis shoes from that run.

The green river was kind of cool and I wish that I had been able to do that again this year.

I am a fan of how my apartment complex chose to celebrate.

Free Chickfila Chicken Biscuit?

Yes, please.

I'll get a little festive tonight and wear my Color Me Green race t-shirt from last year when I go to my running group tonight. But mostly I'll celebrate by having the next FIVE days off of work!

Woo hoo!

I'm ready for my whirlwind tour of Columbia, Kiawah, Mt Pleasant, and Charleston.

I'm ready for biking, beaching, family, friends, and a wedding celebration that will hopefully include a lot of dancing {cause y'all know how awesome I am at dancing}

+ a whole weekend with this guy in the middle of tax season?! Y'all. It doesn't get much better than that.

I'm also just as excited as everyone else to see him bust out his dance moves at the reception on Friday. I'll be there, camera poised & ready.

  2. Of course you celebrated St. Patty's Day with a run...I wouldn't expect anything else! :) Sooooo jealous of your 5-day vacation. I feel like I really need a break from work right now, but I'm trying to save most of my vacation to tack on to my maternity leave. I know I'll be grateful to have the time when it comes, but I'd really like a getaway RIGHT.NOW! Haha. Have sooooo much fun!

  3. I hate crowded bars; totally not my scene either! The green river looks awesome! Yay for five days off and a big yay for the free chick-fil-a!
