Celebrations {St. Patrick's Day 2012}

Happy Monday, everyone!

How was your weekend? Three words to describe mine would be it went by: way.too.fast. This would be one of those times I'd love to have a rewind button. I heard there were record breaking highs in the weather all around the U.S, so I'm sure most of us had gorgeous weather. Atleast, I hope so! :) The weather was 75-80 here all weekend and I'm pretty sure it was the best weather we've had for St. Patrick's Day since I've been born. Maybe even longer.

There were so many fun things to celebrate this weekend so let's exactly what I did...celebate all weekend long. Who doesn't like celebrating things?! Obviously, it was St. Patrick's Day on Saturday, but it was also Holly's birthday (at midnight) so we combined the two. We started the celebrations on Saturday around noon at a local Mexican restaurant (hello..patio, sun, and Corona's) and gave Holly her gifts, had the staff sing..err..chant..a birthday song to Holly, followed up with a shot of tequila. After lunch, we spent the entire rest of the day and evening at Flannagans. Flannagans had the biggest St. Patrick's Day celebration in Ohio..2 stages with bands, an outdoor area with food stands, tables on the sand volleyball courts, and hundreds of people. Pretty legit, my friends. Alicia got all the girls hooked on the band, The Personnel (from Chicago), and they were playing at 7pm & 9pm, so we decided to stay to watch them then head home. So glad we lasted all day we stayed to see them play because they rocked it, and we took shots with them in between their performances haha ;) If you live in Chicago or if the Personnel ever comes to your city {they travel around Ohio a lot!}, definitely go see them play! They are awesome.

Anyways, let me just say this...this St. Patrick's Day definitely took the cake for best celebration in many, many years.

I'm going to let the pictures do the speaking today...

{my blouse and green crops are both from F21..}

...are you surprised? Green staches are the new thing... ;)

Bottom right: Two of the boys of the Personnel - Seth (left) & Sean (right).
See that green/white bracelet Sean is wearing?
 That may or may not be mine.

...and what would a celebration be
without a photobooth session?

This same photobooth company (Columbus Photobooth) we used for our wedding and the owners are awesome and let my girls and I get a free session. They gave each of us girls a free printout of the pics to take home with us.. :)

Moving along to Sunday--

My girlfriend Rachel's first baby shower!
All of our close girlfriends from high school were there and we had so much fun together. Rachel is the first out of our close friends to have a baby, so we are all so excited for her!! Rachel looked adorable and so happy.

{my girlfriend Genna made Rachel this ribbon wreath in her nursey colors and she's going to hang the babies first initial letter in the middle of it :)}

I'm seriously tired just recaping all of this ;)

+Of course, I cheered on my BUCKEYES all weekend long as well.
