Do you live it up for St. Paddy's Day? Or, do you spell it St. Patty's Day?
Here in Smalltown, VA we take St. Patrick's Day quite seriously. There isn't a huge population of Irish people living here. So, I'm not quite sure why we celebrate as if our lives depend on it.
I told you that last weekend I went to a St. Patrick's Day Party at my club. Bagpipes and all!
This weekend is Smalltown, VA's big St. Patrick's Day Parade & All Day Drinking Extravaganza. Okay, it isn't really called that. But it should be! People line up at 11am to see the parade, and the same people are still lining the streets at 11pm. It's one of those days where you call for a cab to take you downtown. Because you know there is no hope of you being able to drive home. And this year....this year my friend Ricky Bobby is going to be wearing a kilt. I'm ecstatic!
I've done a bit of shopping for this year's attire, and I can't wait to share it with you. Once again I didn't bother to photograph anything at the house, so I'll do the best I can with photos from the internet.
I have TWO shirt choices:
(my version of this shirt is actually much cuter. this was just the closest i could find. which shirt do you prefer?)
A presh headband:
(do you see those socks in the $1 bin at Target? i have those :) do you see on the top left? the beer mug hats? i bought one of those for TEN. and one for me. to use a purse. i've just got to sew some ribbon on it!)
(this is an idea of what the hat will look like, but different)
