lovely lovely weekend

My (now) traditional shot of myself eating a hot beignet and sipping cafe au lait at Cafe Du Monde on the way to the airport with my bosom bud, Robyn, and her three little budlings. My ever wonderful husband sent me down solo to see her this past weekend and we had a great time together. I'm such a lucky girl.

There was much talking (or visiting, as we say in the South), drinking of coffee, sitting on the patio watching her kids play, eating of fantastic foods (she is a truly gifted cook and makes almost everything they eat from scratch), shopping (trying on fantasy dresses here and here), fashion and pattern sewing consultations, and of course, some crafting.

I so try to be polite and wait to go in her craft room until I'm invited, but I can't ever seem to swing that. As soon as her back is turned I sneak in there to see everything. There is an entire bookcase filled with delicious fabrics and another bookcase filled with craft books. I think the whole time I was there I had a craft book in one hand and a fork in the other.

I'll show the crafted stuff later and also I'm trying to get Robyn (pretty please) to take some shots of some of her decor to show you (I didn't have my good camera with me), but for now, there is a new feature for you if you prefer to subscribe to the blog by email instead of a reader. Look for the new link on the right sidebar, over there >>>


  1. You are so cute in this photo. You look like you had a great time! I am totally jealous. I look forward to the photos of her craft room. How come someone else's goodies in the craft room are always so much more fun than our own? :-)


  2. I'm so glad you all got some time to visit!

  3. Boy, that's quite a shout out. If I ever become famous, can you be my publiciist?

    And can I just comment on the fact that you have 4134 readers??!!! Good grief, girl. I'm so proud of you. Of course, I've known for years how amazing you are.

    Loved our perfect, girly weekend together, just wishing it could have lasted (a lot) longer. Love and miss you!

  4. Mama Pea, thanks! Yes, it is weird, in the same way that a salad that I purchase always tastes better than a salad I make. What is that?

    Jessica, my husband is made of gold. It was his idea!

    Robyn, yes, of course I will be your publicist. The world needs to know about your homemade blueberry jam! Looking forward to the next installment of Perfect Girl Weekend. It is such a balm for the soul.
