Good morning and happy Friday!

The graduation celebration started yesterday with family arriving. The menus are planned  through Monday, I bought waterproof mascara and I know what I’m wearing to graduation on Sunday.

I’m good to go for a stress free weekend with family and friends!

While planning the menus I wanted an alternative to the more traditional, eggs or pancakes for one of the breakfasts. Muffins! Perfect. And easy to make.
