I am so ready for Spring! Are you just as excited about spring as I am? I cannot wait for it to warm up. The weather has been kind of gloomy and has rained all of this week – no sunshine for days. The one positive thing I can take away from this however is that I know the sunshine will come out soon. But for now if I can’t have sunshine, I can at least enjoy sweet treats to help brighten my mood.
And because you all are so special, I wanted to share one of my newest favorites that will have you and your loved ones leaving room for dessert. This version is from Savings Expert Jeanette Pavini who has has crafted an affordable, homemade version of the classic Shamrock Shake. Just in time for St. Patrick’s Day. Hope you Enjoy!
