I always have time for a sweet treat. Always.

I would love to say I made these:

But, Julie did, for our friend Lisa's baby shower.
(good job, Julie! They were beautiful and delicious!)

Or these:

But Kendra did, for the same shower
(splendid job, Kendra--decadent!)

But I did make these:
Good ole frosted sugars, bright green (& some orange) in the spirit of blarney season, for the Harris household to enjoy, and for anyone who knocks on our door! If one arranges three hearts, they turn into a Shamrock, like so:

It's been awhile since I used my handy vintage Sunbeam upright blender (or is it a mixer?)...mainly because the large bowl broke and I'm stuck with the little one. But the little bowl was just the right size for preparing the buttery, sugary, frosting. So. good.
Here's some random pics from my mommy-only time "out on the town":

May the Irish hills caress you.
May her lakes and rivers bless you.
May the luck of the Irish enfold you.
May the blessings of Saint Patrick behold you.

Seems like you're always at a fun party or get together with great food... Mmmmm. It all looks yummy! If I lived closer I'd stop by for one of your cookies! :)

You take great pictures. I like the one of your mixer and the yummy frosting. Cute cookies! I hope you enjoyed your time to run errands (and take pictures!). We sure enjoyed spending time with you and Wilder on Wednesday.
