A Saturday post. I too, am appalled.
But lots of fun things are happening!
I can't even tell you how happy it makes me to see 500 followers. I never ever thought anyone would truly want to see, read, or interact with me here; seeing this made my heart explode in a million pieces, so thank you for being here, reading, commenting, and just being amazing. I feel so blessed.
Brent has a couple of buddies out for Fake Patty's Day weekend celebration, so we started the pre-gaming at Buffalo Wild Wings. It's definitely not the same as before I was gluten free, but I got an Angry Orchard Hard Cider and it was yummy. And a salad with blackened chicken. Blackened chicken is so much better tasting on a salad than regular chicken. I'mjustsaying.
The boys found this tastiness at the liquor store down the street(there are actually two liquor stores within 2 blocks of our apartment. And about 20 bars. No pressure ;) so while I can't actually drink this, I had to taste it because Honeycrisp apples are hands down my all time favorite apple. It's like eating candy. And this beer? Tastes exactly like a honeycrisp apple. Broke my heart I couldn't have more than a tiny taste!
And this pretty little camera arrived on my doorstep on Wednesday. I've only had about 30 minutes to play with it so far, but I am in love. I just feel so fancy! hahaha!
Now, I'm sure you all want to know, Mallory, what the heck is FAKE PATTY'S DAY??
It's exactly like St. Patrick's Day.
Except, here in Manhattan they celebrate a week(or two) early because Kansas State is always on Spring Break during St. Patrick's Day. Which means the kids are usually at home, not here in Manhattan!
How do we solve the problem of having 25,000 college students who want to drink green beer, whiskey, irish car booms, and Guiness? Why, we make up a new holiday!!
So, today is Fake Patty's Day. #FPD13 if you wanna see the Twitter feed on it ;)
Aggieville, which is the nickname for the "neighborhood" is about 3 blocks long and filled with bars, a few restaurants and shops; closes the street to thru traffic, and it's basically a giant block party. Food trucks, bars, Mardi Gras beads, green t-shirts, the whole thing.
Rumor is it's one of the biggest college parties in the country.
All I know is that we live about two blocks away, I can hear hooting and hollering already(it's almost 11am), and it's fun! I don't get much into the partying, but I love watching the people and seeing how passionate they are about their holiday!
Hope y'all have a fabulous weekend!
