Happy St. Patrick's Day!
I'm kind of overly obsessed with this holiday. Maybe it's my "Irish Heritage" or maybe it's just the fact that I really love green beer, but either way I go all out when it coms to St. Patty's Day. And, because this year St. Patrick's Day fell on the dreaded Monday, we took advantage of celebrating all weekend long.
After spending Friday night out at the bar with some friends, we woke up bright and early Saturday morning to run the RumpShaker 5k benefiting Colorectal Cancer. This benefit run was near and dear to our hearts because my (very soon to be) father-in-law was diagnosed nearly two years ago with the disease. Thanks to a strong will and wonderful doctors he is doing great today! This is a cause that Steven and I will forever support. Oh, and it's one of the very few reasons that I would ever be out of bed at 6:00am on a Saturday morning to run.
After the run, we decided to celebrate by dressing up in our green attire and hitting the bars for some green beer. I love seeing how much fun everyone has with their outfits on St. Patrick's Day. We saw everything from kilts, to green tutus, and everything in between. So. Much. Fun.
Have I mentioned how much I love this freaking holiday? I plan to continue the celebrations today just as soon as I leave work.
Remember to wear your green today so you don't get pinched!
