Early Celebration

Hoboken St. Patty's Day

I'm not Irish... except in March. Tomorrow I will be on the metro bright and early headed to Hoboken, New Jersey for the city's annual St. Patrick's Day Parade. If you aren't from the area you're probably thinking Hoboken is a funny sounding name... or maybe you know of it from watching Cakeboss on TLC. Buddy Valestro, the star of the show and owner of Carlo's City Hall Bakery, has been named "honorary Grand Marshal" of the parade.

Yes, it's an early celebration. It creeps up on me every year and I scramble to find some shamrock accessories. Last year my friend Amanda found those scarves for us. While searching for ideas I got a little sidetracked...

Friday's Fancies

Friends from Boston are visiting this weekend for the celebration and to see a band play in the city tonight. So  I pulled together this quick Friday's Fancies for the night... if only it were this easy. I love linking up to this "game" hosted by {av} of {long distance loving}.
