I’m alllliiiive, muwahahaha!

I took a blog break for the weekend to head down to Chicago, see a bunch of friends and celebrate St. Patrick’s Day! :mrgreen:

I am devastated though – my one goal was to see the Chicago river dyed green, and we never made it downtown to see it. Rats! There’s always next year, I suppose!

I thought it was only fitting that I wrap up the weekend with a cool & luscious Shamrock Shake from McDonalds to enjoy on the 5 hour drive home.

So glad these are only around for a short time each year because I could drink one every day. They are sooo good!

Off to go hang out with Ben, but I’ll be back with the winner of the Baked Doughnut Pan Giveaway in a bit. There’s still a couple more hours left to enter!

See ya!
