Well, we’ve got another fun and successful St. Patrick’s Day party in the books!
The day started fairly early yesterday for our annual 11:00am brunch. I seriously look forward to this every year because there’s always so many goodies.
Check out this adorable rainbow and pot ‘o gold that Christina made. Is that not the cutest thing ever??
Amongst bagels, hash browns, sausage, and my Overnight French Toast, there was also Sarah’s
Pillsbury Signature Cinnamon Rolls, Kate’s spinach quiche, Mal’s Blueberry Coffee Cake, and yogurt with granola.
I brought some Activia Harvest Picks yogurt to share with the crew as a way of incorporating a guaranteed healthy option to the spread.
(Disclaimer: I received coupons from Dannon to help promote their Activia Harvest Picks yogurt. All statements and opinions are, as always, entirely my own yo!)
I didn’t get a chance to try the peach flavor, but the mixed berry was great, especially with a little added granola. I think I may need to buy these more often…I’m always up for tasty ways to help the ‘ol digestive track.
I started off with a little bit of everything on my plate, but I also went back throughout the morning for seconds of pretty much all of it. It was all SO good!
The majority of the morning was spent inside, with everyone filling up on brunch, enjoying some beverages (mimosas for the ladies!) and catching up with friends.
Everyone also had a fun time comparing our special St. Patty’s Day accessories.
So fun and festive.
My little nephew Tram even got in on the festivities!
It was an absolutely beautiful day here yesterday in upstate NY, so within about an hour, the festivities moved outside.
Sarah and Jeff just recently purchased a brand new tiki bar, so we all had some fun hanging around there (I’m sure that’ll be getting plenty of use by us all this summer, right Sarah??).
Andrea did a fantastic job of playing bartender.
The rest of the day was actually fairly low-key compared to last year, but there was certainly no shortage of laughs and everyone was having a great time.
My friend Brook and I even spent some time talking about…blogging! It’s so interesting to talk to him about this sort of stuff because he looks at it from a totally different standpoint than I do.
He also has some pretty great ideas that have got the wheels spinning in that ‘ol head of mine now. We’ll have to see what’s to come of it.
FYI: Brian is a rock star at Rasputin from Just Dance 2.
The camera didn’t get much use after here, but Jay and I didn’t end up leaving to go home until after 11:00pm last night. It was certainly a full, 12-hour day, but an absolutely fantastic one at that. I know I’ve said it before, but I’ll say it again…
I’m so lucky to have such awesome friends!
How was your St. Patrick’s Day? Did anyone do anything fun and festive??
