That means "Friday" in Italian. My Dad has been taking Italian classes because he, my mom and my brother and sister in law are all going to Italy this June! He speaks pretty well, actually, and I've been trying to brush up on my own (I used to be able to carry on a conversation when we lived in Italy, although language is one of those things that slips away if you don't use it).

I'm up in the Bay Area visiting my parents and Senor Pedro El Gato. Mila has joined me, because where I go, Mila goes. Whether it's to the bathroom, kitchen, garage or Papa and Momita's house. Just a touch of separation anxiety going on over here...but we are surviving. When we aren't throwing tantrums that is. And by "we" I do mean both of us.

What are your plans this weekend, my dears? Anything fun?

Here are your lovely links:

Have you seen Gaby's giveaway for a Velle purse? Ah-mazing.

An Easter egg hunt in front of the Eiffel Tower??? If only to be Parisian!

I am completely smitten with this lovely spring tablescape!

The Everygirl has tips for de-stressing during tax season.

Cookbooks for every girl's wishlist!

An incredible interview with Taylor Sterling. I am inspired.

P.S. Have you seen our giveaway? You do not want to miss this!

My Italian is, I think, almost non-existent at this point. This really makes me want to take a refresher class. And then plan a trip to Italy.

oh Prague. Love that shot you took! Loving your links. The Everygirl feature on Taylor was so inspiring.

Oh yes, the language does sadly fade slowly :( I need to practice so much more. Want to enroll in classes too or just have friends who speak fluently. Perhaps when we both brush up a bit we shall just have to get together and practice some more :) I find it so cute what you have said about Mila!! So so sweet. Packing for Vegas this weekend, have a great one ladies!
