Happy Healthy Monday

Whew what a weekend.  Cooper is officially 3. Where does the time go.  He is in train heaven right now. He was so happy and had a great party and time at the zoo. I will have pics soon of the cake. We couldn’t find our camera so my SIL had to take pictures for me.

So needless to say I was too busy to step on a scale this weekend nor did I want to this morning. Lots of junk from the party but I did lots of walking at the zoo so I hope I didn’t do too much damage. I have lots of cake to eat. I know some will say throw it away but let me say this, I didn’t spend $90 on a cake to throw it away.. LOL I hope hubby eats it and I will be taking some to my bowling girls Thurs night.

Hope you all have a wonderful week and enjoy this recipe. Fall is coming up so keep this handy.
