Four years at Notre Dame teaches you a few things.  God. Country. Notre Dame is a strictly held mantra for life… and St. Patrick’s Day comes second in celebration only to Christmas!  So of course I HAD to host this week’s It’s Friday, We’re In Love featuring all things green, rainbow and shamrocks! And while now with three kids 4 and under I may celebrate St. Patrick’s Day a bit differently than I did in my green beer guzzling college days, it must still be celebrated.  Here’s 100+ St. Patrick’s Day activities, crafts, fun food ideas and more to paint the town green for St. Patty’s Day!

It's Friday, We're In Love is all about all things green, gold, rainbows, leprechauns, shamrocks and more! Featuring 100+ St. Patrick's Day Activities, including fun food, crafts, kids activities and decor ideas, we have everything you need to celebrate St. Patrick's Day
