Happy St. Patty’s Day! I was just telling Nate, I had such a fun weekend, and I had to work all day on Saturday. Must mean we did a lot in the last 24 hours! I’ve always liked the idea of St. Patricks day, but i’ve never really “experienced” St. Patricks Day the way others do. Throughout college, I was on the diving team and St. Patricks day always fell either the week before or during NCAA nationals. Green beer was frowned upon at that time. 😉 Since then, I guess I’ve become a wuss when it comes to drinking in really large crowds, I don’t enjoy it. I would prefer to go to a smaller, local bar with a small group of friends where you can converse and enjoy a green beer, rather than be crowded and spilling green beer everywhere. Well we had quite the day today that ended with some green beer!
This morning started wonderful! Telli let us sleep in until 7:40! That never happens. She is used to waking up between 5:30-6:00, therefore if we get to sleep in until 6:30, we’re pretty lucky! I was craving some eggs, so we we made these delicious eggs topped with spinach, cherry tomatoes and feta cheese! And of course, a side of coffee!
We took a walk down to one of the local “parks.” After Telli’s bad behavior at Washington park a couple days ago, we decided we need to try to train her in a more public area. Once again, she was terrible! I think Nate understood how frustrated I was on Wednesday with our walk. She pulled every which direction. Needless to say, I think we will be spending a lot of time at this park in the near future to help train her around people, dogs and strollers.
Then it was time for her
favorite thing….BATH TIME! She hates it. We take her to our local pet store, you can use all their equipment and supplies for $5! Totally worth it! I didn’t get any pictures during, although it would’ve been amusing, because we were just trying to hold her down the entire time-water, soap and black hair were everywhere!
She does enjoy right after the bath. We call it “Telli Towel Time!!!!!!” and she gets SO excited! She runs around the room and we put towels all over her in a playful way to begin the drying process….
Here is her
second favorite part, getting blow dried at the end….I think it’s the sound of the dryer, she just doesn’t like it. I think this picture even shows how happy she is right now!
This afternoon, we went down to Belmar in west Denver to enjoy some green beer with friends! It was a little chilly outside, but the sun made it feel much warmer than it was, so we were able to sit on the patio! Like I said earlier, this was my first official green beer! When I have gone out for a beer or two before on St Patricks day, it’s either all gone, or they are not offering it. We were all pretty excited about it! We also enjoyed a nice little entree of fish and chips! It was so good! Definitely English, but from the same continent right?
And, I know it’s kind of random to have a cheese platter on St. Patricks day (not quite corn beef and cabbage) but with two girls from Wisconsin, we saw they had this as a special and HAD to get it! It was SO good!
Nothing like beer and cheese to make a Wisconsin girl happy! 🙂
Did anyone eat anything that was just so delicious but not quite “St. patty’s day approved?”
May the road rise to meet you,
May the wind be always at your back.
May the sun shine warm upon your face,
The rains fall soft upon your fields.
And until we meet again,
May God hold you in the palm of his hand.
