First of all, I recommend that pancakes bookend all weekends. Ricotta pancakes to be exact. (sans the way too much work topping in that recipe.) I had a productive weekend that involved lots of necklace making, plus some necklace experimenting with a new book on braids and knots I bought. I could not have nerded out with that book more than I did this weekend. The testing paid off – a new necklace was created that I’m excited to share with you sometime soon! The strand above is my testing strand, fyi, not the necklace. But between being productive I promised myself I would take breaks from my new-found Friday Night Lights obsession (thanks, Andrea) and visit friends. I went to Emily’s and she made me arugula pesto (have you had it?! I dare say it’s better than basil) and I made her my Gin Cuke (good friends share good things) and on Sunday, London shared one of it’s finest bloggers with me – Victoria – and I ate yummy brunch with her and her friend Pauline at Little Giant. A pretty good weekend that flew the hell by! With pancakes.
