2014 Paddy's Day Parade- Recap

Whew. I am worn out. This past weekend was the annual St. Paddy's Day parade in Jackson & as always, the weekend was full of fun! To sum it all up in more words that you probably feel like reading, the past few days contained: 

laughter (LOTS of laughter), dancing, singing, picture-taking, airport runs, marching, toasts, cheers, tears, smiles, hugs, sausage-grit casserole, Shirley Temples, wagon rides, Texas friends, charades, interpretive dance, texts from Jackie Boone to "TURN IT DOWN!!!" (while in the bed in the other room), Beef Ball (that does not contain beef, nor is it in a ball), glitter, tutus, Mr. Pickles, besties, running into old pals, celebrating someone we all miss dearly, a continuously running Keurig, Nuggets, Tuxes, Bloody Mary's, Hot For Teacher blaring at 7 AM to drag everyone out of bed (thank you, Ray Boone- it sure was entertaining for those of us already up), $10 port-a-potty usage fees, bands, photo booths, beads, Krystals, an outdoor fireplace, jokes, reminiscing 

This year was certainly different in many ways when compared to the past. We were so excited to have friends come in to help us celebrate & those not with us were missed and thought of so often throughout the weekend. 

Here are a few pics from the past few days!



Happy St. Patrick's Day! 


  1. This sounds and looks magical. You are all beautiful! I'ma need the sausage and grits casserole recipe!

    1. Thanks so much, Russ! Maybe you can join us next year?! You are welcome here ANYTIME! We miss you TONS & I can certainly pass on the casserole recipe- it's DIVINE. XOXO

  2. Man, you all do it up right in Jackson! Loved all of the pics of you all in your green! Loved that tutu outfit of Hazel's!!! Hugs!!!

  3. I'm still soooooo jealous I missed it but glad my girls got to share it with you! One advantage to that is that now I know I've also got some traveling partners from now on .....
