Hello. Being that I'm usually a few days behind on outfit posts, it wasn't too likely that I was going to get my green duds up on St. Patty's Day. And since I didn't have anything green prepared, I decided to skip yesterday's post altogether. Instead, I got all crazy-productive at work. Unfortunately, I don't have much to show for my efforts, but I know I did something yesterday.
I'm not really a celebrator of St. Patrick's Day, but I do think its fun to wear green with everyone else. I have no idea if I have any Irish blood coursing through my veins, but if I do, it's minimal. I think I'm mostly Swedish on my dad's side and who-knows-what-combination on my mom's. It doesn't matter though. The holiday is a really big deal in St. Paul, Irish or not. People take off work, dress up as leprechauns, carry around pots of gold (not really), get really drunk, ect., ect., ect. It's the only holiday (that I'm aware of) when public transportation is free.
I don't drink beer. I think it smells like vomit. (Have I mentioned that before?) And I have no desire to 'acquire the taste' of anything that smells that way. I'll stick with wine and cocktails...or better yet, just water with lemon, please. Gosh, I'm boring.
After work yesterday I stopped by Valu Thrift to check out their stock. A fellow shopper recognized me from my blog! (HI ANNA!) It's the first time that has ever happened to me! It's weird having the cyber world and real world cross paths, but I'm SO flattered that there are people out there that enjoy what I do here. And there's no reason why my Twin City followers/lurkers can't be real life friends too!
I picked up a few treasures at Valu that I'm really excited to show you!
