Is there a better place to celebrate?

Chris and I (well mainly Chris-- I'm just a plus one these days) were invited to the St. Patrick's day party at the Irish Embassy- I was SOOOOOOO excited. We went back and forth about whether or not to bring Abby. Generally these events aren't for children, add in the fact that St. Patties day generally entails quite a bit drinking and well you can imagine. But we decided to go for it and I am so glad we did. The Irish ambassador was totally nuts about her outfit and gave us so many compliments on how adorable she was. They even requested a picture of her for their monthly newsletter haa! And I was worried that no one would get why she was wearing orange shoes with her green dress! She was even brought a cool ribbon for her headband with the flags colors.
We then had a delicious dinner. I had steak (of course) and Chris ordered a seafood dish. They don't mess around with their seafood here. He kept holding up "things" that were in it and I got progressively sicker and sicker. This was just one of the many tentacled items:
UGHHHHHH Kerlack! You could not pay me enough to eat that. Luckily Chris had enough sense not to eat it either.

I agree you look great in that green and how adorable are abby's orange shoes! What a great way to spend St Patty's day at the Irish embassy. Looks like fun.

You guys look fantastic! Where in the world did you find orange shoes!?!?!?! I think I'd probably devour what Chris was eating. Squid is my all time fave.

I dislike being a "plus one" too. Kris and I just quit going to a lot of the functions though because most of them here are just booze fests. The last time we were at the Amb. house for the heads of agencies party the head of DEA passed out while Kris was talking to him. Are we diplomats or frat boys? Hard to tell sometimes at least at this post.
