Each iced cupcake only has 188 calories.  :D


I love St. Patrick's Day.  My family is Scotch Ulster, so we love all things Irish. My grandmother's 92nd birthday is on the 18th, and our wedding anniversary is on the 19th.  We are taking my grandmother out to lunch Sunday.  We cannot wait!  These are three of the most fun days of the year for us, so it will be a great weekend and Monday!

Until next time...

  14. Hi RJ! Oh, your table is wonderful! I love all the greens you're shining. What a fun table. Well, I've heard so much about folks getting in trouble by pinning the wrong things from Pinterest, so I've been deleting my boards. I've already deleted my felt. I hate this.
    Be a sweetie,

The linens are perfect with the shamrocks. I'm going to look at your recipes, the stew sounds great. Love the cupcakes, yum. We are Irish from my mom and Jim from his dad. Happy Birthday wishes to your grandmother and Congratulations to you and your husband.

  22. Very cute! I love the green plates and are they cabbages or flowers in the basket? Either way, I like! I visited the Longeberger shop while visiting cousins in Ohio. It was such a fun place. I bought a basket and a wall sign with three hooks for holding baskets. You have a nice collection. Happy St. Patty's. My family will be sharing a green dinner on Sunday. I am now a new follower.
    Hugs,
