I think I mentioned this before (HERE), but I'm not super huge on going gung-ho with decorating for every single holiday. It is just not one of my strong points. I love the little touches here and there, fun celebrations, special treats, and enjoying each other's company, but when it comes to the house, I'd say Christmas is my big decorating moment, and the season of fall follows close behind. I have nothing against folks who do enjoy full force seasonal and holiday decorating, and actually think it is quite fun and inspiring to see others enjoying themselves. If my life were a little different at this point in time, I might have a bit of a different mindset for decorating, furnishing, and embellishing this house...if my body didn't struggle with arthritis so often...if we had a little extra money here and there...if I had more time to myself...if, if, if. But it's not a different story. It's just how it is right now. Although I am a creative person and would love for my house to be my creative outlet all the time, I am able to have moments and projects here and there that makes "how it is right now" totally great, and quite enough.
Anyhow, one thing I can get right behind and love to be a part of is when food and holidays collide. I mean, food is one of my favorite parts of any holiday...and I'm pretty serious about it. Don't mess with me at the Thanksgiving table...especially if you are a quick eater. I am happy to sit by myself after folks have long since finished just to slowly enjoy every last little morsel. I kid you not, there is no fear in this girl in regard to going for seconds and thirds if it is that good, and it usually is. :)
With that, I came across this beautifully decorated cupcake that would be so fun to incorporate into any of your St. Patrick's Day celebrations. Whether you and your family just wear a little green (and get in on the pinching) or you are Supermom and make all sorts of fun treats for your little ones to take to school and share, this cupcake could surely wow them all!
