Weekend St. Patty's Festivities

Morning everyone!

Well my headache from Saturday's St Patty's festivities is still going strong over 24 hours later. But I think it was worth it. All 15 Irish car bombs and all.

On Friday night, we went out to an engagement party for a friend. This was the huge suprise that we all knew about but couldn't share until her boyfriend proposed on Friday evening. I also happen to work with this lovely lady so keeping such a big secret from her was extreme torture.

On Saturday I baked some chocolate chunk cookies and picked up different Irish beers to bring to a St Patrick's party that night. 

Before the party, K and I went out for dinner at a new restaurant that opened up in our neighborhood. The Lobster Mac n Cheese was delicious and, of course, I had to get a dirty martini with blue cheese stuffed olives!

We then changed in our green gear and joined the rest of our friends to celebrate St Patrick's day.

We had a blast catching up with friends.

And completely overdid it with the Irish Car Bombs. Hence looming hangover ;-P

Super fun weekend! 
Linking up today with Sami for Weekend Shenanigans.

I hope you all had a great weekend!

Throwback Thursdays: St Patty's Style

I didn't have time to scan some old pics so in honor of St Patty's day this weekend, I was able to find some pics of previous St Patty's celebrations (thanks to modern technology aka Facebook).

Last year we went to a house party with some friends and celebrated with several Irish Car Bomb shots.
 (We all look possessed in this picture thanks to the iPhone camera.)

Previous years we've gone bar hopping downtown and I'm pretty sure we had several Irish Car Bombs.

And back in college we went to the local Irish pub and drank green beer and/or the cheapest drinks we could get our hands on.

I actually still have the above green shirt which says "Shake Your Shamrock". I think I'll wear it again this weekend to keep the tradition going for St Patty's Day ;-)

Joining in today for Throwback Thursdays.
What are your plans for St. Patty's day this weekend?
