Cupcakes for Father's Day!

Happy Father's Day to any dads who might be reading this! Extra special wishes go out to my dad - love you and miss you like crazy!! Hope you have a wonderful day.

Today will be spent w/J's family as usual.I have a good WW plan of attack - appetizers will be limited to veggies, 2 swipes of dip and 3 pieces of cheese. (Depending on what they have of course!) Dinner will be on the grill, usually chicken, so that's ok. Will have to control the sides. It'll probably be potato salad and other stuff like that that I don't like. Dessert, well, that is my weakness LOL!! I will just have what i LIKE and only one serving.

And speaking of dessert... look at what J and I are bringing!
Dark Chocolate Cupcakes with Peanut Butter Frosting from Brown Eyed Baker.
Forgot to take a pic of the batter, etc, but here is some carnage:

It REALLY started because Jeff wanted to make Mr. Pricklepants ones. Mr. Pricklepants is a new character from Toy Story 3 - and yes YOU MUST SEE THIS MOVIE! It is funny and sweet and sad and nail biting amazing. The idea is from
