A couple of week ago, I escaped for a girl’s weekend to NYC. When we originally purchased the tickets we had no idea that our trip would fall on St. Patrick’s Day. It was the opening weekend of Evita, staring Ricky Martin, and my friend’s obsession with unattainable gorgeous gay men meant we just had to go! St. Patty’s day was just a happy coincidence.

We woke up Saturday morning, showered and headed out to the big parade. I sported a green v-neck top while my friend proudly displayed a shirt that screamed, “Shake Your Shamrocks” across her chest. Sadly we were severely under dressed. People were decked from head to toe in green glory. My favorite costumes were on the men who proudly braved public scrutiny by deciding to leave their homes in long spandex green one piece suits. I beg of these men to leave something to my imagination next year.

I’ve decided to begin prepping for next St. Patty’s Day very early this year and I’ve been scouring the web for ideas. These are a few of my favorites…

And of course a costume for my little Kya…
