The Irish Spirit

St. Patrick’s Day is less than a week away! If you have lived in NEPA before you know how that day impacts almost a whole week around this area. If you’re new here you will quickly realize that St. Patty’s Day is a pretty big deal! Between all of the specials that restaurants and bars run, the parades, the decorations, and of course the green you see everywhere, for one day (or weekend) everybody in NEPA is Irish. So to get you in the Irish mindset I’m going to give a whole post dedicated to good ol’ St. Patty himself! There’s some recipes, schedules and even some craft ideas to help you receive the luck o’ the Irish!

Hey I'm Allison or otherwise known as Alligator. I am currently a senior (yay grad school!) at MU studying speech-language pathology. I love MU because it reminds me of my high school; it's a tight-knit community where people hold doors for you no matter how far away you are. My favorite time on campus is in the fall, it is absolutely gorgeous. When I'm not studying I'm either reading or watching Netflix (yes I am a junkie). I also really love food, so cooking and baking are fun too!
