This year, I got to come back to Kentucky and spend St. Patrick's day with some of my friends!
There was just as much UK blue around as there was GREEN! :)
My first "green" beer of the day!
All three of these lovelies are some of my best buds, and were in my wedding :)
Lexington has a parade every year that a TON of people walk downtown for!
It was supposed to rain all day, but it ended up being warm and gorgeous out!
These two photos crack me up. There was a Moe's (mexican food) float that was in the parade, that was handing out bags of chips and queso. Jessica didn't realize they were giving out food until they were all the way down the street. She ran down the middle of the parade to make sure to get her chips and dip!!!
Some of the "parade" was quite interesting. There were tractors, random cars, llamas?!? and the humane society had some cute little doggies with green hair.
After the parade downtown, we went in one of the local bars for a little bit, and then headed to our beloved TWO KEYS to watch the CATS play!
Two Keys is the place to be to watch the CATS play. It gets packed out. We went and scored a table at 5 p.m. for a game that started at 7:45. When it's a BIG game, you usually have to be there when they open in the MORNING for a table.
Two Keys is also known for it's "fishbowl" drinks. Our favorite is the "trashcan". Literally, it is a fishbowl, with a TON of stuff in it, including a toy shark with a shot, and a FULL redbull. It is death in a fishbowl.
We all had SUCH a good time. It was a perfect Kentucky weekend! I got to see all my friends, got to go to Two Keys, I got to watch the CATS win, and we ended our night with some Mad Mushroom pizza. It doesn't get more "Lexington" than that.
ALSO. SIDE NOTE: I'm not sure if any of you all keep up with the NCAA championship, but UK has advanced to the FINAL FOUR!! We beat Baylor yesterday, and University of Louisville beat Florida on Saturday.
That only means one thing, we will be playing our BIGGEST RIVALRY (UL) this next Saturday. I can't even put into words how CRAZY it is going to be in Lexington, Louisville and New Orleans (where the game is) this next weekend.
People lose their minds. Last year there was a full swat team outside of Two Keys and Tin Roof when we played UofL, and that was just a regular game, not a final four game.
I am so excited I can't stand it!!
If you don't have a favorite team, you can adopt mine and help the Big Blue Nation cheer on the CATS!
