First King’s day- King’s day Brownie cupcake

Today was King’s day for the first time sinds the queen Beatrix abdicated last year.
Her son is now the King of the Netherlands and therefore his birthday became a national holiday. Officially his birthday is tomorrow but it’s Sunday. Can you still follow?? 🙂

H. had to work today so i was alone at home with our 9 months-old son.
I decided to celebrate King’s day on my own way.
Since March i’m embracing the Weight Watchers lifestyle (with succes ;)).
Even on special occasion i can integrate it in my life.
Please find underneath my King’s day brownie cupcake!
