Weekend Whimsy #10

Good Morning!  I just had a nice week of much-needed vacation as I had literally worked every single day for 3 weeks *except* 1 day. Le SIGH.  But this week I had some nice R&R first at the Ojai Valley Resort Inn and Spa then a little stay-cation at home full of cleaning and... blogging!!

Since I've had time to do some blogging, I thought I would mention that I am trying to adhere to a blogging posting schedule... Mondays, Wednesdays, and then Friday Favorites, followed by Weekend Whimsy on Saturday.  That's FOUR days a week! Woo!!!

In case you hadn't noticed, I changed my #weekendwhimsy header to an ocean theme... picture taken in Maui!
Enough talk, on to my links for the weekend...

//1// This French Tea Party theme is soo incredibly cute.  I cannot believe how cute the croquembouche is with the flowers! (what's more amazing is I spelled croquembouche right the first time!) EDIT - I fixed the link, it should now go to a tea party and not an Irish Wedding!

//2// Since it is Memorial Day weekend, I decided to take a little internet tour of Ralph Lauren's All-American homes... check out his Bedford NY home and Colorado Ranch!

//3// While the phone cameras are getting really nice, this article highlights why we still need a "real" camera.  I can attest to this, the photos I shot of Paris with the DSLR are much nicer than my iPhone ones!

//4// Since I know all y'all gonna be BBQ'ing at some point this weekend, why don't you make some of these grilled garlic parmesan fries. I never met a potato I didn't like.

//5// I have seen these Twix Cookies all over the internet and they are haunting me as they look so good.

Well, that's a wrap. Have a nice Memorial Day. RIP Grandpa, Oma, and Opa.
