Saturday Recap

Yesterday, we went to the St. Patty's Day parade that Dallas holds on Greenville Ave. each year. It was the first year that Nate and I had ever been.. I know right!? Why have we never been before?

Well.. as much as I enjoy being around people, being around a lot of people tends to bring me some anxiety. Oxymoron? Maybe, but it's true. So I tend to stay away from things like this, but for whatever reason, I wanted to go really, really BAD this year.

I didn't have to twist Nate's arm too much either since the Toadies were playing, and he got us tickets through work, so that was simple for me. :)

Let me just say that we saw a whole slew of different characters, but we had a blast, and I think we'll definitely go back next year, well.. maybe if the band is good.. ;)

I took WAY too many pics, but have only chosen to share a few of my faves.

First of all...
Happy St. Patty's Day! :)

The Jack FM promo car - this is the radio station that Nate works for..

This was the CW33 channel station - the channel that airs Family Guy, so of course it was only appropriate that they had a giant dog on there - here's Brian.. :)

Me and my little baby seestar!

Nate and myself, waiting on the Toadies to start rocking out!

As you can tell from the picture above, I got just a tad bit way too much sun. For whatever reason, it didn't cross my mind that we'd be outside ALL DAY LONG, and I didn't put on any sunscreen.

I got ridiculously sunburnt. More so on my right side. I look so stupid. I'm hoping that it'll go down a little bit before work tomorrow, so I don't look so ridiculous.

Let me show you the differences..

My left side, not too bad, a little bit of sun, but not in pain or anything..

And my right side, which is as beat red as a lobster, hurts so bad I can't even lay on it, is hot to the touch, and I just look plain dumb..
Excuse the no bra, glasses and messy hair. I had just gotten outta the shower. :)

I have a feeling that aloe will be my best friend for the next couple of days!

Oh my gosh!!!! Your sunburn looks terrible!!!!!! I'm so sorry! At least you had fun...

Allyson and Dave said...

I hope you have some aloe to soothe pain. It looks like you had fun. I did St. Patty's Day in Savannah one year...pure green madness.

Kate Weber said...

Looks like lots and lots of fun. Except for the sunburn. I got so sunburned once that my skin was purple. It... was bad news bears.

But they day that presented me with the sunburn was one of the best! I hope that you feel the same way about your day!

Krysten @ After 'I Do' said...

Oh no that sunburn does not look fun!

Mr. and Mrs. Smith said...

Looks like fun! Booo for a sunburn :( Hope it heals quickly!

Heather said...

Oh no! I'm as pale as they come, so I definitely appreciate the pain that comes along with a sunburn. Hope it gets better fast!

Heather said...

Hannah @ The New Black said...
