Free Stuff and a Festival

Good morning all!

Yesterday I did a little shopping before I met Kara for our walk. I recently received a Target gift card and it was BURNING a hole in my pocket! So I got myself some free goodies!

How adorable is this summer stationary?! I love that the post-its have check boxes! I always add my own but now I don’t have to!

I am also excited to try out these…

But my big purchase of the day is going to help me with my Yoga Challenge!

Yes I am now a proud owner of a yoga mat! I plan on busting it open later today and getting my yoga on! I also picked up Jillian’s dvd. Hey it was on sale.

Yesterday I spent the day with my friend Teresa at the Boston Irish Festival!  She got discounted tickets through Living Social so the whole event cost just $7! Got to love a bargain.

It was definitely a sundress day! We were laughing about how silly it was to have an IRISH festival during a hot summer weekend.

It was a beautiful day and with Celtic songs in the air how could you NOT have a great time. As promised there were games, rides, dancing, beer and Gaelic football! I was however a bit disappointed with the food. Would you believe there wasn’t a potato in site?! They sold crab cakes and Italian sausages…. Very strange.

That last picture is a delicious scone I had at the Irish Tea house 🙂

I also got some great ideas for potential wedding bands. Nolan has been less than enthusiastic when it comes to choosing jewelery, but he LOVED the samples I showed him! I think the Celtic braiding is so beautiful and delicate.

But the highlight of the day took place on the field. For 2 hours we sat in the stands watching a Gaelic football game……I can safely tell you that I STILL HAVE NO IDEA how this game is played! I don’t understand how to keep score, the time limit, or ANY of the rules.

As far as that last one is concerned, there didn’t seem to be any rules. The players could kick, throw, and or dribble the ball, and it appears that they could do whatever they wanted to stop the opposing team from advancing. This was honestly one of the most frustrating things! I grew up with 2 brothers, and a mother who spends her free time at ball fields and not the mall. I know sports. I have never been the girl in the stands wondering what is going on….until yesterday.

Apparently the green team won! By the end of the day we were both sun burnt and speaking in an Irish brogue. It was perfect.

Today looks like another gorgeous 80+ day. Go outside and do something fun!
