So Much Green

There it is, Chicago's famous green river. I went downtown this morning for the St. Patrick's day parade and I was completely dreading it. I woke up not knowing how to dress for 80 degree humid weather with chances of thunderstorms. That ruled out all of my cute clothes because I didn't want to get them ruined. Then once we actually got to the city, there were crowds of thousands on people. As soon as I saw this I started to panic because I have a slight case of claustrophobia. After a little bit of hyperventilation, we made it to a clearer space, but we never actually did get to see the parade. However, the day turned out to be absolutely beautiful, and actually quite fun after we escaped the herds. Now I am ready for a long deep sleep.
Until next time, Mandy
