Cupcakes and a date night!

Happy Saint Patrick’s Day friends! I hope you all have safe and fun days! (And may the luck of the Irish be with ya 😉 )

Last night Mike and I had an impromptu date night! Those are the best!!

We went to my favorite Italian restaurant and I got my favorite dish!!

Whole wheat penne covered in marinara and fresh veggies and grilled chicken!! I had my leftovers for lunch today too!

Then we were off to get some FroYo because what date is complete without it?!

I think he was embarassed that it was crowded and I wanted a pic of him 😉

This morning Mike made me a really good breakfast complete with eggs, toast, and homemade breakfast potatoes!!

SO Good!! He is quite the chef!

We had to fuel properly for a big morning of cupcake making! I started making cupcakes last year for Mike’s office in the heat of tax season because every little bit helps! Those people work hard! This year, I made accounting/tax themed cupcakes! Silly, but I think they will get a kick out of them!

Mike handled the mixing…

This afternoon we managed to get outside for a bit too! Mike had a lacrosse game and even though it was my rest day and cold out, I wanted to get outside and watch him play!

He did great and even scored a goal!

Have a great Sunday everyone! 🙂
