St. Patty's Weekend Round-up

Last weekend Derek was gone for three days for a Bachelor party.  He went up to the mountains where they could play poker and shoot skeet (yes, we are in the south, y'all).  He had a lot of fun and it looked gorgeous up in the mountains!  - and I had a lot of free time on my hands.  This also happened to be my first full weekend off since Christmas!  I did it up.

Friday after work I met up with my friends Karen and Guy and watched Duke get beat by Lehigh!  Wahoo.  That really messed up my bracket, but I didn't really care. We went to a cute little pub in downtown Apex, which I love.  How cute is this town?!

The picture really doesn't do it justice, but I have mentioned it before here.  Adorable little town.  I used to work with Karen and Guy at school and they were so kind to let me crash their date and hang out.  It was so good to see them!

Saturday I fit a ton in...I gave some private lessons, I had lunch with Sara, we walked around the lake, and then I even started cleaning my house!  Not for long though.  I met Mandy for dinner and then I met some old teaching friends out for St. Patty's Day.  We saw the coolest bag-pipe band! 

There were about 20 of them, bag pipes and drummers and they were intense!  We found out it is comprised of members of the Atlantic Beach Fire Department.  They were really good and they played for a long time.  A very festive way to end my St. Patty's Day.

On Sunday I ended up having to coach a Sunday morning practice (big thumbs down to that), and then I worked out and Rachael came over to sit on the couch to help me cheer on the Wolfpack!!  Who won!! They then advanced to the sweet sixteen!! Yay!

Sunday night when Derek got back we went out for sushi to get some quality time in.  I need more weekends like this!
