Parades and Patty's

In case you live under a rock, I will let you know that today is St. Patrick's day. Being Irish myself (my name means Ireland too) it is one of my favorite holidays. It isn't serious or full of high expectations. You just go out and have fun with friends and wear green. Green being my favorite color... it's a good day.

Today marks a banner day on this blog as well. Not only am I taking pictures outside, I had a photographer. Thanks Shawn!

Shawn and I went downtown to the "other" parade. If you don't live in the Twin Cities, you may not know about this. St. Paul is known for their huge parade on St. Patty's every year. However, it's always at like noon. Needless to say, I've never been. The parade in Minneapolis takes place on our pedestrian mall downtown and it was really fun. Once the sun set it was really cold though! Here is my outfit and a little collage of some highlights of the parade.

*Oh and this is totally not my house. It is this really cool mansion right next to Shawn's apartment. Isn't this door fab?*
