Guest Post... 5 Essentials for the Perfect Weekend by Stephanie of The Merry Way

Happy Friday y'all!  Please welcome the super sweet Stephanie (ahh alliterations...) from The Merry Way.  She takes amazing pictures of yummy foodstuffs and other yummy stuff and always seems to be doing fun things with her hubs and adorable pupster. 
Hi all you Julip MADE readers!  I'm Stephanie of the merry way, and I was beyond ecstatic/thrilled/honored when Julie asked me to do a lil' guest post for her.  She came up with the idea of 5 Elements of the Perfect Weekend, and I ran with it.  How hard is it to find pictures of cute clothes, accessories, and pancakes?   "Not hard" is the answer to that one.  So without further ado, here's 5 things that, in my opinion, would make any weekend pretty darn great.  Enjoy!
