St. Patty's Beer Fest = Great Weekend!

Herro! Happy Monday! I hope you're all having great days! I'm at home, taking a personal day, to just relax, sleep in, do some chores, run some errands, etc. LOVE days like these - "a second Sunday" really. :) Here's part of what we're recooping from - a fun St. Patty's Beer Fest! Our 3rd annual party - we love it. Austin does the yard and games, I do the cooking and decoration - it's a lot of work but a lot of fun! Here's some pics from this year's party:
Hydration station = important for a beer fest!
Love all of the green!
Me & the food!
More food! Added 3 new dishes to the Mediterranean menu!
This is still one of my favorite recipes - love these little crostinis!
outdoor foosball = good idea
and what's a party without cornhole?
Most of us girls stayed in the shade! 
Great to see Shana & Sharon!!
Andy won best beer, and Teresa won worst! :)
Beer station = just as important as hydration station!
Fun shot - this is where the pups chilled and sun bathed!
That is when they weren't flocking to Karly - they were LOVING sitting on her preggo belly! it was SO DANG CUTE!
Loved all of the green! The buckets and linens from Austin's birthday last year came in handy - we even painted the keg trash can green. hehe
Such a pretty day to be outside!
Great to see Jamie! It had been too long!
Always fun to hang out with the Blancos!!
And these ladies!!
And these guys! Yes, it got late! 
So yes, this occupied most of my weekend, from doing prep work Friday, to the full day Saturday (party started at 3!) to resting/cleaning up on Sunday! Totally worth it though of course, and am glad to have today to do NOTHING!

Q: How did you celebrate St. Patty's?!

Q: Are you a fan of the color green? I'm a huge fan. Our bedroom, dining room, and living room all use green! I don't have a lot of green clothes, but love wearing green in the spring!!
