Weekend O' the Irish

Sunday is St. Patrick's Day. If there is anything you should know about St.Patrick's Day, it's that it IS my favourite holiday... EVER! I'm not really sure how that got to be but I remember as a kid my mom would always get excited about St. Patrick's Day, we'd dress in green, and I'd wear a big shamrock pin and... yeah, so it probably originated there, haha! I so look forward to this holiday as it's just about green (Pantone colour of the year anyone?), fun, beer, and the odd Irish jig.

Last year: leaving for Montreal

The past couple of years I've gone away for St. Patrick's Day: Boston two years ago (amazing and my favourite) and Montreal last year. This year I am also going away, but to Niagara Falls! As a Patty's Day destination it doesn't really make A LOT of sense, but that's neither here nor there. Last summer my roommate won a trip for two to Niagara Falls and (due in part to its impending expiry) we decided to use it now! The trip includes a business class (read: free drinks) round trip train fare and 2 night stay in a two-room deluxe suite at the Fallsview Hilton Hotel! What?! Yup! So we are heading down the morning of St. Pats and going to the nearest Irish Pub the second we arrive (I Googled it, there is one). Last year apparently the Falls were green and I would love it if they were this year too! Our second night I think we'll tour around a bit as we both haven't been there in years, and go out for a nice dinner. Very much looking forward to it!

May you all have a safe and fun St. Patrick's Day! *Insert Wee Irish Jig Here*

  2. hahaha! Sounds like you go all out! I went out last night for St Pats just to beat the crowds :P Hope you have a Happy St. Patrick's Day!

    1. Thanks! It was a really good day/weekend!

  3. WOW! I hope you had a blast! I've never been to Niagra Falls but everyone says it's really kitschy (which I actually really like in a getaway). I hope you have a blast! you look great in that picture!

    1. It was awesome! It's such a beautiful place and if you're doing what we did (and NOT going to a vineyard) then it is a bit kitschy, but I really like that too - I had an absolute blast! Thanks! :)
