Um, YUM. (and weekend snaps)

Good Gawd the weather is GLORIOUS here in the midwest - I can't even  believe it. I am waiting for the other shoe to drop (along with the temps) but for now, I'm enjoying it. For St. Paddy's Day (or Patrick's Day, as my Irish hubby refers to it), I made these Irish Car Bomb Cupcakes that my sis told me about. They. Are. Dangerous. Chocolate cake made with Guinness, filled with a whiskey/chocolate ganache, topped with Bailey's Irish Cream Frosting.

The green ones were virgin bombs I made for the kids. Don't say I didn't warn you.

Accidental snap when I was outside playing with the kids today.

Best. Bubble. EVER. Hands down.

Well hello, pineapple-banana smoothie. Made this with 1/2 cup skim milk, 1/2 c Fage yogurt, 1 banana, about 3/4 c pineapple, 1 scoop vanilla protein powder, a lil honey, and some ice. NOM NOM NOM.

My sweet Simon.

I love this picture of Scarlett. She so purty.

Hope you had a great weekend!
