Mal's St. Patrick's Day Parade

This is me 1 year ago @ the famous St. P Parade. I look @ this picture and feel sick. I feel sick cause I probably thought I was fat when this picture was taken. I would give anything to look like that again. I don't think I could get 1 boob in that shirt now! Yet again another piece of humble pie served since pregnancy.
I look more like this now:

Anyway, we will be taking Evan to his first St. Patrick's Day Parade tomorrow. Thanks to Jill Conner Browne of the Sweet Potato Queens (Pictured above) our Parade is famous nationwide. I remember going to this parade ever since I was a little girl. When I was little, I always wondered about the ladies with the big boobs and butts and then a few years later, the men who dressed like the Queen's and called themselves "the Wannabe's." It always seemed like an inside joke that I wasn't privileged to know, but desperately wanted to. It wasn't until her book came out that totally understood it all.

So this Saturday we will be in downtown Jackson. Ron and E will be dressed in Green. I will be in my usual sweet potato queen pink and green. Who knows I may "pink" my dog again. Pray for good weather.

I'm jealous :( We didn't do anything for St. Patty's.... Well, "we" as in me and the kids - the kids' classes had parties, but no parades with tacky outfits and people.
