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!

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.

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!

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!
