St. Patty's Beer Fest: The Eats & The Good Times

Me and Austin had an ABSOLUTE blast having our friends over to celebrate St. Patty's via a Beer Fest. Teresa & Forrest got in around 1:30 p.m., we finished up the food and beer/ice prep then everyone started arriving around 3 p.m. The weather was BEAUTIFUL - perfect weather to spend the day outside, sunny and no rain. Here's some pics:


I made my Mediterranean menu - with a few new ones mixed in!

All of the preggers came later on to visit with us - so good to see them all! They're all having boys - all due between March 17 and May.
Danielle, me and Stacy on the couch - we finally stopped laughing to take this pic!

SUCH a fun night. We are so happy that our friends came up and over to celebrate. It was also great to see the puppers, Sadie, Daisy & Cassie - Reuben and Remy loved the company! This was our second annual beer fest - i'm already looking forward to the next one!!

Q: Have you ever been to a beer fest? I love it - such a great opportunity to taste and find new beers. The winner was Longboard - i'd never even heard of it but loved it. I also found a new favorite in Abita.

Q: How did you spend your Saturday? Did you have good weather?
