Hello Friday!

2/17/2012


The weekend is here, which means it's time for me to rest after a busy week filled with Mila's birthday festivities. My parents came down last weekend, which was so nice. My mom helped entertain Mila and my Dad cooked dinners and served us wine at 6 o'clock. You can't really ask for anything else. But now we are getting back into reality (I still serve myself wine at 6 o'clock...but never mind). Do you have any fun plans this weekend, or are you just chillin'?

We'll be taking a blogging break on Monday (we're actually meeting up for an in-person blogging date - a rare treat!) and will be back to our regular programming on Tuesday!

Here are your lovely links:

I made this onion-apple pork tenderloin the other night and it was delicious. Even Mila loved it. And she's hard to please when it comes to meat. Thanks Sherri Lynn!

I am in love with Cozamia. Isn't her artwork just stunning? Found on Luella and June.

Yep, everyone is talking about J. Crew Fall 2012 (including us). Liz has a great roundup here.

Aren't these mini cakes the cutest?

Faux macaroons (that look delicious)!

My favorite Whitney Houston song. I can't get over her hair in this video!

P.S. Have you entered our giveaway yet from Sassyrae yet?

P.P.S. A very happy birthday to my wonderful friend Sharon.
