There was a time in my life where I LIVED St. Patrick’s Day. And I am not even Irish.
You see, I grew up in Hoboken, NJ. And Hoboken St. Patty’s Day Parade was everything. We used to get up, have a breakfast party at someone’s house. Then head out to drink and celebrate all day. If you made it past midnight, you were a trooper. Must people would be passed out at home by 7:00 PM. But I proudly made it past midnight every year. Go me!
SOUND ON! 🔊🔊🔊 St. Patrick's is around the corner and I am getting ready with some glitter and one of my favorite bands of all time @floggingmollyband! Will be sharing this look tomorrow at nerdandlace.com. Who's ready to party like a leprechaun? 🍀🍀🍀 | Headband: Swag from @reem_acra during last Bridal Market #kissme • • • • • #beauty #beautyblog #beautyblogger #bbloger #bblogers #instabeauty #makeup #makeupblog #makeupblogger #instamakeup #nerdandlace #mbacosmetics #glitter #pressedglitter #motd #glittermakeup #glittershadow #stpatricksday #stpatricks #stpattys #partylikealeprechaun #irishpunk #floggingmolly #drunkenlullabies
But the celebration has changed over the years. And it’s NOTHING like it used to be. You had one job younger generations, and you’ve ruined it. There’s not even a parade any more. How depressing.
So this is my ode to the spirit of Hoboken St. Patty’s Day past. To great memories, even greater times, and green beers!
