Happy St. Patrick’s Day!
I love Ireland and the Irish. I love Guinness. I love Irish music and food. My favorite color is green. So needless to say, I love this holiday.
I have been to Ireland thrice, twice of which was on St. Pat’s Day. Those are some good times, my friend.
My St. Pat’s weekend this year kicked off with a 5am run. I met some friends and we cruised to an easy 7-8 miles, followed by a mimosa 1 mile fun walk – it was St. Pat’s after all.
I was on daddy daycare duty (and doodie) this weekend, so I wasn’t able to go to the big shindig with all my peeps.
I was however, able to make it to one of the big St. Pat concerts – Graceland Ninjaz. It’s basically Elvis singing cover songs. It’s fun. I was actually in one of their music videos last year. I played a ninja, coincidentally.
We had some wicked storms blow in the early evening that day, and I thought the show might be cancelled, but then we got a St. Patrick’s Day miracle. The skies cleared and delivered us a double rainbow!
The show was on! It was a fun time! I’m friends with most of the people in the band, and so they brought me on stage for a bit so I could perform some of my sweet dance moves to titillate the crowd.
The next morn we were supposed to do a trail run, but it was too muddy. So I met my runnin buds for power yoga at Lululemon. Afterwards we went across the street to Starbucks.
Now I’ve never had a cup of coffee in my entire life. So I don’t make it to Starbucks much. But I wanted to try the turkey bacon egg sammich that Run Salt Run goes on and on about.
It was purdy tasty! Thanks Salt! However I think I pissed off the line of coffee zombies behind me when I ordered my sandwich and tea. I’m sorry I held you up, but their system of cup sizes cornfuzed me! Sheesh! Like I said, it had been years since I’ve been in one of those shops.
Anyways, it was a nice lil weekend there. And today is the actual St. Patrick’s Day, so I will celebrate with a pint o’ the black stuff in my custom etched Guinness glass that I’ve been saving for today.
Another thing to love about this holiday – it doubles as my birthday eve. Yay me!
How bout you? How was your weekend? Do anything special for St. Pats? Ever been to Ireland? Did I take too many selfies this weekend?
