Yesterday, I started the day out like a champ
On Friday night, I caught up with a good friend who lives far, far away until the wee hours of the night. When my alarm sounded at 8:30 am and I knew I would be drinking in an hour and a half I almost turned over and went back to sleep. It did not sound appetizing. But I didn’t want to bail on my first really social St. Pat’s so I geared up and hit the restaurant with friends. I also had my first green beer!
I drank this along side an Irish coffee, which I mistakenly thought would be coffee with Irish creme in it. Coffee with Bailey’s sounded AWESOME! Coffee and whiskey were a bit harsher than I was ready for but again, I’m a champ and went with it.
I am so glad I went out yesterday! I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again – Michiganders LOVE any reason to throw a party and they really do St. Patrick proud! There was green everywhere and people really get into the festivities. I don’t remember it being this big of a deal back in WA but maybe my memories are skewed. Oh yes, and I rocked my knee-highs! :)
I made some new friends, got a couple of free drinks and laughed my hiney off! There was no stress, the sun was shining and I just had a great time. The only sadness?
My beloved Zags did not move on in the tourney! Boo! Ohio State did beat them – not by much and I will admit for a few minutes there I was despondent. Then I rallied to enjoy the rest of the day. Not to mention, the Lady Zags are still in it!
Today I am resting up from my fantastic weekend. It was the kick-off of the next few weeks of awesome weekends in a row. Next weekend is the Kal-haven trail run – just got an e-mail about this and can’t wait! Then I’m helping to throw a baby shower for my dear friends Kara and Aaron (since you guys are getting a blog shout-out that means you are naming the baby after me right?!) and after this it will be April. Holy cannoli – where has the time gone?! I am super grateful summer will be here soon and am prepping myself for all kinds of impending changes and good times. A few summers ago, I decided I was going to have “the best summer ever”. This meant trying new things, having adventures and literally only sitting still for 5 minutes at a time. I have decided this will be “best summer ever… again.” Okay, so the title needs work but you get where I am going with this! And to end this post on an additional high note
Yum! You know what this means? Running hunger has set in!
***Any ideas about what I should do for “best summer ever… again”???
