Weekend in Pictures - St Patrick's Day Edition


Our weekend can pretty much be summed up by one picture....

our son, asleep and in a kilt. And those socks, straight from Ireland thanks to a dear friend.

But because I'm photo happy, there are plenty more where that came from to document the weekend.  

[Chocolate Guinness Stout Cupcakes]

Because I am certifiable sometimes, I tried my hand at made-from-scratch Chocolate Guinness Stout cupcakes.  Usually my definition of "from scratch" is scratching open the Betty Crocker pre-mixed cake batter, but I took advantage of Liam's nap schedule during the day and rocked the recipe out.  They (surprisingly) turned out fantastic. 


It's hard to believe that Spring has already hit the Carolinas.  This past weekend we had highs into the 80s; which is so not usual.  I'll take it.

St Patrick's Day is usually one of my favorite holidays and I am quickly learning that when you have kids, you have even more of an excuse to celebrate.  We partook in the annual St Patrick's Day Parade downtown this year.  Liam was a sleepy captive audience.

Hope you and yours had a wonderful, fun, and safe St. Patrick's Day!
