Have an spectacular weekend

The weekend is here. Yay!  I cannot wait to start up the grill again and cook some shrimp and salmon.  I have this plan of spending the entire weekend on my patio sipping cocktails and eating smoky food.  Maybe we will squeeze in the art gallery, although we hate to go on weekends because it's just too crowded, but might make an exception for Joan Miro's The Ladder of Escape exhibit currently touring the National Gallery of Art.  It's the only time my husband can visit it.  And you?  Any exciting plans?  As always, here are a few links from around the web that I have truly enjoyed.

wishing I was in this park

or visiting this part of the world in detail!

incredibly clever and yummy food type!

where to get stuck in Italy? (Milano, of course)

these cuties need you, won't you help in any way?


  1. The story about the mom totally sounds like my mom. Off to read it. Have a great weekend -- spending time on the patio sounds perfecct!

  2. Thank you soooo much for telling me about Polyvore! It was exactly what I was looking for. I already tested it out yesterday and you are right, it's very easy to use.
    I am German by the way, I try my best to hide the fact that I'm not a native speaker but I guess it still shines through... oh well :-)

    Have a great weekend!

  3. Sounds like a great weekend.. it was D's birthday so we spent the day at the carnival..
    the mom post was great.. mine doesn't read mine either.

  4. Wow, that farm dinner...magic. Especially in the dark, with all the candles on the long table.

    And the photographer's home was really, really cool!

    I hope you really enjoyed your cocktails :-)

    Love Maria
