St. Patty’s Day plates, napkins and white forks to match for tonight’s gathering (close enough to the 17th don’t you think?)100_2768

While I was there, who can pass up a sale on such a cute set?  Not me!  The set included small and large plates plus napkins for only $5.  I added some matching pink forks just for fun. 


Finally, these large square pastel plaid plates and matching napkins were too precious to pass up.  The hot rose pink forks will be a fun accent with these.  I’m hosting a family picnic (of sorts) next month – guess what we’ll be using – hee hee!


Noon – 12:10 stop at McDonalds pick up a Happy Meal for me (my first Happy Meal in nearly 30 years) and a Number 4 for my husband


12:10-12:30 eat above Happy Meal . . . and yes, it did make me happy.  It was my first Cheeseburger from McD in 2012 – I used to eat 2-3 double cheeseburgers there weekly BEFORE my lifestyle revolution!!!
