Have a cozy weekend

Hi friends! What are you up to this weekend? Have you seen the movie, Beginners, starting Ewan McGregor and Christopher Plummer?  I'ts such a good feel movie, I highly recommend it.  I was so happy when Mr. Plummer won the Best Supporting Actor Oscar.  And can you believe it's already March.  I hope you are getting Spring fever, I sure am.  In fact, I caught a whiff of Spring this week, as the temperatures reached 70 degrees here in DC.  Also, I want to apologize this week for not stopping by your blogs as often as I normally would; all of the sudden the week seemed too short.  I have been writing Emilu's birth story and it's taking me longer than I'd like, so I hoping to be done with it this week.  I can't wait to share it with all of you.  Speaking of Spring, I've found the perfect cupcake recipe for a Spring feast, and will be trying it out this weekend. And if you are in need of inspiration, check out the links below.

  1. Hi Patricia!

    A feelgood movie is never wrong, I will check it out. I have been home from work all week with a flue, but now I'm getting better anyway. Very tired though. So bored of staying home! I will try to gather energy to invite my friend Maria to dinner on Sunday. She works in Stockholm and works for 4-5 days, then comes back, so if I don't see her now it will be another week before we have dinner.

    I saved the phototips on Pinterest (so good to have personal tips from different people). I hope you will get your camera eventually, and I hope I will learn to use mine :-)

    Really cute flag necklace too, following one of the links!

    Hope you will have a great weekend! Love Maria

  2. Will add it to my netflix queue..
    I am waiting for my kid to start playing with crayons.. breaking them into little useless nubs so that i can put them all together and make new rainbow colored ones!
