It’s that time of year that green is all around us in Nashville as a welcomed sight. The grass, the leaves and this past weekend, the hue of celebrating the patron saint of Ireland, Patrick.
I met up with one of my former band mates, Keys, and we had a fun catch up lunch at my fave watering hole, Dalts.
Friends of yesteryear also keep me company with kind words and support he’s always throwing behind me.
I had a guest coming over for supper (oh, we will get into this supper vs. dinner debate at a later date) Friday evening and I hadn’t made my Lazy Lasagna (or anything that didn’t simply require a microwave heat up) in…well, I can’t remember when. Naturally, I acted like I was concocting an eight course meal, when really I was just layering ingredients.
Lucky for me, it turned out in my favor.
Once the lasagna was baked and in my belly, I promptly took a 16 hour nap, gearing up for the weekend festivities.
In celebration of the season, I’d gussied up my pink tinsel
Christmas Celebration tree and sat to enjoy my Saturday spiked coffee in front of it.
Meeting up with friends for the celebration of Irish culture did not make for a dull time.
We saw nothing but green until we started to consume cocktails of the day’s hue.
.. might have had me seeing black and white.
While I was busy with Shamrock Shenanigans, my Iowa twins were road tripping down South.
It’s hard to remember just how little these two nuggets were a mere three years ago.
Speaking of shits, I’m lucky to know the most fun one in all of Iowa City. My buddy N8 never misses a chance to morph into the best leprechaun every year.
On Sunday, the actual day of Saint Patrick, I met up with First Mate for a gulp of our favorite boxed rosé. Although we didn’t get the green dye for to properly mark the occasion, we made do.
It was so fabulous outside, we couldn’t resist a patio where Van Waffle asked me to take his picture. The fucking nerve.
All in all, the weekend of sunny skies, fabulous company and fun made me feel like the luckiest girl. Although, what makes my world go round always takes my lucky cake…
Here’s hoping a little luck comes your way this week.
