Shake Your Shamrocks!

Happy St. Patrick's Day, Everyone!  St. Patrick's Day is my very favorite holiday.  Think about it: You get to drink all day, hang out with your friends, you don't have to necessarily make awkward family visits and you don't have to stress out about holiday shopping.
Every year, we have the Annual Greenville Ave. St. Patrick's Day Parade in Dallas.  It's really more of an enormous block party and this year, Mark Cuban totally saved St. Patrick's Day for all of Dallas when he decided to fund the shortfall in revenue that is needed to put on the parade.  These are the photos of the last few years of parades.
2008 - This is Ned Nnome
2009 - Green much?
2010 - Someone stole my feather boa!

I know that I look ridiculous in these photos and I can't help you if you are going for the cute and sexy green look.  We go all out and we consider it a huge compliment when anyone insinuates we might look like Green threw up on us.  I am just fortunate that my husband loves St. Patty's Day as much as I do!
2011 - My sister.
Last year  I invited my sister and was completely delighted when she went ALL OUT for the festivities, too! She used this wig that I bought for an oompa-loompa costume a few years back and put a sequined headband on it then added her boa and bucketfuls of beads.  I LOVE HER!

How do you celebrate St. Patrick's Day?
