St. Patricks Day in Savannah, Georgia!

 Kiss me, I'm Irish...
Are YOU wearing your GREEN?

Have you ever been to Savannah, Georgia on St. Patricks Day?
Ohhh... It's a must at some point in your life.
Everything is GREEN!!!

You gotta be ready to just have a good time.
People come from all over the world! Sad to say, I am stuck in my office today! It stinks!!!
First time EVER. Wait.. I'm lying. I didn't do the parade thing last year, but for a very good reason!
My best friend Danielle, pictured above, never misses a St. Pattys Day. Her entire family [who I call family]
has a certain spot where they set up a tent as party hard. Since we've been Besties, I've always been right there with them. We sit on Bay Street [Main street the parade runs down] and watch, drink, dance, and have a good time.
We do this every year. Last year at this time, Danni was in the hospital due to having a serious case of Merca, Staff Infection. She actually was released on St. Pattys. I sat home with her, and watched the parade on Television.
So, these pictures of us were actually from St. Pattys Day 2009. It was a good one!

Me & Aaron.

I played the Drums a little....

One of my FAVORITE pictures!

There is nothing greater than hearing the sound of the men playing one of bagpipes.
However, Not Aaron. I actually have this on video, but it wouldn't let me download it.

I sure do miss not being apart of St. Patricks Day 2011.
One of the down falls on being a grown up! :(

However, What I am looking forward to today, is
1] I'm working a half day
2] My Bestie Holly is meeting me for lunch
3] Today is my first make up trial for my BIG DAY! SUPER excited!

Here are a few pictures of what Savannah, Georgia looks like on this fun & exciting day....

We've never really walked ON THE RIVER, like this picture. This is a little TOO much for me!
We stay on Bay Street where it's crowded, but NOT like this. It's so much fun!
However, On a normal day to day... Walking the Savannah River is beautiful!

Best sounds EVER.
Bag Pipes!

You may or may not know someone who is walking in the Army, The Marines, Air Force....
But it's veeeerrry normal to put on your RED lipstick, pick a cutie out, and give kisses on the cheeks.
I love NYPD. Those men are the hottest!
[Yes, NYPD do travel all the way to Savannah just to walk the parade.]

Everyone is GREEN!

You look NORMAL, even dressed like this....

Happy St. Patricks Day!

They have a crazy parade like that in Dallas, and it's so much fun. I went for the first time this year (it was last weekend!)
