I’m really looking forward to this weekend! I’m home visiting my mom, meeting my dear friend’s baby for the first time, and meeting up with a bunch of fabulous wedding folks while I’m here. And since it’s my birthday, and I’ve been dreaming about this marble cake since I first tried it a month ago, I’ll be picking one up as soon as possible. Mmmm….. But first, a whole bunch of links for you this Friday!

All this traveling is making me completely lose track of the days! I didn’t realize until 2:30 yesterday that it was Friday, and that I had totally forgotten to post my weekend links! Anyway, I love weekend links, and even though they’re a day late, I hope you’ll love them too. The weather is practically perfect here in Austin, so I plan on spending as much time out of doors as possible, maybe doing some reading (any good book suggestions?)…

Kicking off my honey’s spring break by meeting up with Bryan and Branden from A Bryan Photo, and Branden’s lovely wife Lindsey, for dinner at one of our favorite Austin spots – the weather is finally nice enough to eat outside! Then we’re headed out of town for a few days, back to Wisconsin to meet our new nephew – what a fun way to spend the weekend! What are your plans? Anyone else taking a spring break?

Okay, I have to confess something. Ever since I tried it a couple of weeks ago, I cannot stop thinking about the marble layer cake from SusieCakes. I mean, it’s marble cake, and then it has chocolate chips in it, and the perfect amount of delicious chocolate and vanilla buttercream frosting. Drool. (If you’re near a SusieCakes, get one of these cakes for yourself, and then get one for everyone else who is jealous and wants you to share.) It would be the perfect thing for my big sister who is celebrating a birthday today – Happy Birthday Abigail!

Yesterday, one of my very dearest friends and I did a little cupcake taste test (which really just means we bought cupcakes from two places and ate them), so I’m not quite sure how the weekend could live up to that, except that I’ll be spending it with my honey, which is always a treat. I’ll also be keeping my fingers crossed for nice weather, because I’d love nothing more than to read one of my new book purchases out of doors. What are you up to this weekend? If you happen to be somewhere in New England, this pic for you. (Isn’t it just the cutest? Jeff Newsom takes amazing photos, and he shoots weddings, too…)
