Happy St. Patrick’s Day! Our day will be spent hopefully going into the parade (or watching the Dublin one on TV – weather determining), a little stroll around town, grab some dinner and home to chill. Since having the boys our nights out are a thing of the past. We much rather relaxing on the sofa and getting sleep while we can. Crazy, I know! Anyway, I thought I would share some of the Irish gems on Netflix at the moment in case your night is as exciting as ours!
