Boy, what a weekend, and what a week ahead.

I’ll write about all these things in more detail, in due time, but I had a mama staycation in a hotel over the weekend for work. And for pleasure! I’ve learned two things about me over the weekend: 1. I like the idea of being alone more than I like being alone. 2. If you’re going to be in a hotel, for me, it helps to be in a nice place with nice things to do OR it helps to be with loved ones. So I had 1 out of 2. Don’t worry. I’ll write all about it. Right now, let’s talk about Memorial Day desserts.

Oh, and before I forget, definitely tune in this week (probably Friday) where I have my announcement to make. I’ll be linking my announcement up to Finish the Sentence Friday, because I’m crafty like that. Tune in! It’s cool! (still not a baby)

Anywho, now really. Let’s talk about Memorial Day dessert recipes, and these can also be Fourth of July brownies. I am certainly not picky. I’m also certain you can enjoy these year-round. You can change the sprinkles colors, or not. I know that every May, I am looking up easy Memorial Day dessert recipes. I also want them to impress, though. And everyone in my family knows that I don’t much care for brownies, unless you add frosting or caramel. To be fair, though, I didn’t make those ones on Instagram. I just play them on TV. This is going to be a big week so I had to open my blog week with THIS:
