Parties and More Parties
It was another one of those busy weekends--I had to come back to work today for a rest!
Friday morning was my first event in my new position--a brunch for bloggers to celebrate the launch of Catherine Sanderson’s Petite Anglaise (on sale June 17!) The event was lots of fun, and it's pretty cool to be trailblazing in blogger outreach.
We ‘met’ the lovely Catherine, live from Paris via webcam--the day before her wedding!
Thuet Atelier provided some very yummy treats.
The pastry chef is in town for a few months to learn English. He recognized the book (it went on sale in Europe a few months ago), got excited, and made delicious macaroons in pink, yellow, and chocolate brown, to match the book cover! I can’t believe I didn’t get a picture.
There was lots of scintillating conversation, and the occasional cackle.
I hope I’ll get to do more of these!
McHotty’s sisters and their hubbies were in town for the weekend. We had a family BBQ Saturday night (McHotty did a fine job with some nice steaks), and a baby shower the next day. Cakes was a champ, behaving very nicely, despite eating 5 cupcakes and bouncing off the walls. She’s going to have another cousin in a month or so!
How was your weekend? What do you think of the wicked temps? Are you for, or against?
