Luck of the Irish

Valentine's is over. So, what's next? You guessed it...


I live in Savannah, Ga and around here, St. Patrick's day is kind of a big deal. And I take pride in having some Irish blood! Last year was my first year going out into the mania.  It was so much fun. And this year, my Momma and Daddy are coming back for the fun and we're dragging my husband downtown in green!

Let me just show you how we do it in Savannah.

We spray paint beards

We drink green beer

We tailgate in squares
We soak gummy bears in vodka

And our outfits are serious. 

This year, I'm going a little simple chic for my outfit. And I'm going BLONDE (those pictures make me miss my dark hair)

Pants Old Navy
Blouse Old Navy

We're on a budget, so I think it's awesome I got such a steal on both items. I just wish my legs looked that great in those jeans. Depending on the weather, I'm either going to wear gladiator sandals or cowboy boots. I'm not sure if I want to add browns/gold jewelry? Or green? Thoughts?

This year I'm also "celebrating" different. This year I'm in nursing school. This year I have an exam Monday. This year I need my last day of Spring Break for studying, not recovering. 

What do you do for St. Patrick's Day?

As much as I love Savannah (and I only live about two hours away), I've never been to St. Pats there! I really need to change this! I love the dark hair btw.
