Fleur-de-Links: Saturday, March 26

Hello, everyone. I'm back in the Fleur-de-Links saddle again after a weekend off so I could spend the time with my family in Covington, LA, for my Dad's Surprise 70th Birthday Party, which was much fun. Big thanks to Papa Dave for covering my shift last week. He is truly a man among men and women WhoDats.

What kind of cake did we have? I'm glad you asked. My Mom ordered 5 dozen "petit fors" with "70" written in icing on each of them - SWEET! They were good for dessert at the party as well as intermittent snacking over the next two days.

Come across the jump with me for some tweets and links...
