For as long as I can remember I have LOVED St. Patrick's Day...I'm not exactly sure why this is but I have some ideas. 1) I'm a ginger 2) I'm the size of a leprechan 3) I love beer 4) Green is my favorite color  and 5) I am VERY Irish
With a lethal combo like that how could I not love St. Patrick's Day?
In honor of my favorite day of the year I want to go back and revisit this holiday over the last few years...

I could only find pictures as far back as 2006, which I think is pretty impressive ;)

Toni, Erica, and I celebrating at Devin's house

I'm pretty sure we went to the bar after this...but I honestly have no clue

I do remember that Burt had a rough night :)

SPD 2007: Whitney, Amy, and I had a party at our house....what a fun night :)

Not sure who was in charge of the camera?

I never claimed to be attractive ;)

We then jump to SPD 2009....I have no idea what I did for SPD in 2008....must have been memorable :) However I definitely made up for it in 2009. We celebrated in Las Vegas at Coyote Ugly

Yes, it was St. Patty's Day and not a one of us had green on...ashamed

Green Drinks!

There is our green :)

St. Patty's Day always falls on Spring Break so in 2010 we were able to celebrate in of the best vacations ever :)

Dinner before our night out

I was the only one wearing green...I was so ashamed of myself from the year before ;)

What a night...I love these ladies and our mad tamborine skills ;)

2011 was the year of the forgotten camera...thank goodness I can steal pictures from other people!

Westport SPD begins at 9 am and ends at 3 am...ouch

Jenna and I

That brings us to this year....we decided to skip Westport because SPD was on a Saturday and we didn't want to deal with the crowds. We headed to Waldo bright and early yet again ;)

Vanessa, Bob, and I

I love these girls :)


Yay for new friends! So glad you were able to come out Cari :)

A little "weenis" licking...this is why we are friends

It's becoming a tradition for these ladies to stalk me on SPD ;) Love you both

Josh and I

I may or may not have an unhealthy obsession with Real it came as no suprise when I ran into Wes I needed a picture :)

Final picture of the night...I didn't last as late this year. Getting old is not all that fun

One would think that a teacher who has an ENTIRE week off in March would have time to post her "1 off topic blog per month" for the month of March. If you thought that or can't figure out why I didn't have time to get it done...clearly you don't know me! :)
I'm notorious for putting entirely too much on my plate and I have difficulty saying no. So what? I'm a people pleaser...I don't think there is anything wrong with that, plus I like staying busy. However, my habit of staying busy often times forces me to push less important matters to the side. Not that I think blogging isn't important, but it is SO easy to say..."I will do it later"
I would like to say I will make it up in the month of April by posting at least 3 off topic blogs...but I can't make any promises. However, I have pictures from a few recent events that I am itching to share...For this particlular post I want to share one of my favorite "nights out" It goes by the name of "Power Hour" Sadly, I had never experienced a Westport Power Hour until last year. Thank you Jessica for opening my eyes to this wonderful creation. $10 and all you can drink for 2 hours...good news for me it doesn't take much for me to have a good evening :)
When Jessica called me and invited me to a Power Hour in Wesport, I couldn't say no....especially since I would be starting my morning out in Westport for the St. Patty's Day Run. I figured a good slogan for my day would be "Run through Westport by day, Drink through Westport by night" Yes...I am aware that I am "really cool"

Unfortunately...or maybe fortunately, you decide, I didn't take many pictures.

Who says it isn't cool to wear matching outfits? I think we looked damn cute ;)
These girls ALWAYS make for a fun evening!
Josh and the ladies :)

I found this little gem along with 15 others that are very similar on my phone the next day...I think it is safe to say we had a good time ;)
