raining on the irish parade

on friday i made 250 green jelly shots for the restaurant. on saturday i ate more than my fair share. on sunday i floated in the flood on my pirate ship and cast my sails in the hurricane winds. 

its been a whirl wind three days of storms in san diego. lets re-wind back to saturday. we woke up to winds of 50mph and rain..which i proceeded to go out in and do a workout. i returned drenched to a house where i spied a bottle of Jameson..sneakily waiting for the start of St Patty's day celebrations. our plans were unfortunately altered due to the storm and instead of biking on our pub crawl, we took a taxi. lame, i know. 

we started the day per tradition at laguna beach with bionic beavers. then made our way to Bare Back Grill in Pacific Beach. jelly shot number 1. 
game faces

in due time we started getting irish fever and thought it time to head back to Ocean Beach to The Harp. A local irish bar around the corner from Raglan Public House. we spent the rest of the day and evening hopping between the two bars. and eating the rest of the jelly shots. jelly shots which i blame for me not having ANY photo footage of the most exciting part of the whole weekend....seeing one of my dearest kiwi companion's whom i shared time with at Tulsa, Ashley Aiken. she was in town for a track meet and made her way to hang out with us and get a touch of kiwi by way of a lamb burger and some nz vino. and more jelly shots. it was much too short, but seeing her and catching up was awsome. can't wait to visit her in hawaii ;)

truth be told sunday was a rough one. winds continued to blow, hail came and went..twice..rain fell and my little pirate ship got rocked. literally. on my run i saw some serious damage, tree's were down everywhere! thankfully i only got hit by a tree once. lucky escape. upon wakening and venturing outside the house, PJ discovered that "one of our plants just committed suicide". yip it was that kind of storm.
outside our front gate. total destruction. 

but don't worry guys. we are all okay. thankfully the sun has now returned again. whew.
