|I tried to dress up like a leprechaun. Marcus said I just looked like "a cute girl." He loves when I dress preppy.|
Thursday was HANDS DOWN the best
St. Patrick's Day I've ever had.
We started off the day by meeting our good friends Jenny, Jack and Luke for breakfast at The Flap Jack Shack.
Luckily none of us forgot our green!
|Me, Marcus, Jack, Jenny, Luke|
Have I ever told you that breakfast is my favorite? I have yet to meet a breakfast food I didn't love.
We ordered French toast, a Mexican Omelet, a huckleberry pancake, and hashbrowns.
While the boys were talking outside, Jenny and I waited in the warm car.
We were chattering away when all of the sudden I tiny leprechaun darted past us and threw something in our car!
Luckily I had my iphone on me, so I could share with you the magic that is St. Patrick's Day:
Can you believe it?!
I've almost never been happier.
After getting some things done at home, Jenny and I went grocery shopping, in preparation for our St. Patrick's Day Dinner.
It had to be green, though preferably naturally so!
Jenny found this creamy, spinach soup recipe from the pioneer woman, and I'll admit, I was doubtful, but I loved the color so, that I decided to give it a try.
My oh my, I'm glad we did!
Everyone loved it, we added shrimp which was a very good choice indeed!
Then Jenny borrowed my bundt cake pan (that happened to be gifted me from none other than my Irish Story Telling teacher! Perfect, much?) and baked us a pistachio fudge cake (also from the pioneer woman).
After dinner we talked of our dream destinations and how we hoped to end up next to each other.
Oh, wouldn't that be grand?
To finish off the night, we headed over to the BYUi bowling alley for a VERY QUICK game.
Jenny and I were on one! I guess we just had the luck of the Irish with us because we whooped the boys!
While I've alway liked St. Patrick's Day, I've never really made it a particularly special day. But now that I know how great it can be, I don't think I'll ever go back to not acknowledging it as a FANTASTIC holiday!
