Have a sweet weekend.

My lovely readers, what are you up to this weekend? Alex and I are going to our friend J's annual holiday dinner tonight. He always keeps the dinner menu a secret, so we're waiting with bated breath. For two of the past seven years he's served Turducken! It's a de-boned chicken inside a de-boned duck inside a de-boned turkey, and you can slice it like a loaf of bread. How rad is that? (Also a feat to fit it all into a tiny NYC oven.) Well, my lovelies, have a wonderful weekend, and, meanwhile, here are a few great posts from around the web...

Fourteen ways to survive a holiday flight.

A perfect gift for type enthusiasts.

YUM, breakfast...

J. Crew's pretty new wedding dress.

A bike twist on the ubiquitous poster.

Oooh, this beautiful shop is opening in a restored 1950's service station in Ohio. (Midwest is best!)

Crux blankets (via Melanie)

Make your own pine-cone garland and wreath chandelier!

Five pretty winter outfits. (LOVE the tie-die skirt.)

I love these old-school clutches.

Mark your calendars: The new season of Project Runway starts on January 14th!

And, to add a smile to your weekend, a hilarious Onion video...

Hello from Sweden!

Have a great time and enjoy the Turducken!!! ;)

Ooh I love this list, Jo! I always do, but this one is especially great for me since I took a couple days off from my blog surfing. Those blankets... the new shop opening... and I love everything on Refinery29, as per usual!

melissa davis said...

So glad you liked that wreath chandelier too!! I thought it was such a great idea! xx

Be careful in that snow the east coast is supposed to get! I'll be rocking around the Christmas tree at a couple parties this weekend! Can't believe Christmas is ONE week away! xoxo

I once saw Paula Deen make a Turduckten and I have never recovered.

LOVE the sailor shirt. But do not love the price! There has to be something equally authentic but much cheaper, right? I have one from LL Bean but don't think it's got enough heft.

JBeaudetStudios said...

Hi Joanna! I've heard of turkducken but I've never tried it. I love the links and now I want breakfast but it's dinner time! Thanks for the visit to my blog, it made me smile:) Have a great weekend!

hey_kate said...

haha, my dad saw a turducken in a supermarket flyer and thought it was the funniest thing ever, so he clipped it out to show us at thanksgiving dinner. never heard of it before, it sounded funny! hope it tastes good!

The Midwest is the BEST! I love that shop - thanks for sharing!

sarah said...

Feliz fin de semana!!

Deb Oh said...

Thanks for the link love! I'm excited for Project Runway - I'm going to be rooting for Anna Lynett (she's a friend of a friend, really really sweet girl!)

Nicole Marie said...

that picture is adorable! have a great weekend!

Joanna Goddard said...

anonymous, do you mean the sailor shirt in the Refinery 29 story? the original Saint James sailor shirts from Brittany are pricy because they're so iconic and also come all the way from France, but luckily you can usually also find cute striped shirts at urban outfitters, club monaco, jcrew, and the gap. good luck!! xoxo

Cafe Fashionista said...

Fourteen Ways to Survive a Holiday Flight...oh, could there be anything more perfect? Have a fabulous weekend!! :)

Raru said...

Thank you for this post. Have a great Sunday.


colleen @inspiredtoshare said...

Midwest is best!! It doesn't get enough attention. I LOVE that shop!!!

Cassandra Marie said...

Turkducken!? Lol...that sounds like something that I'd wanna try!

Melissa Blake said...

So what DID they serve last night? I'm curious now!

Claire said...

TinaGreece said...

Have a wonderful time!!! Well if J. can master a Turduchen, I can just imagine what a yummy feast you will all be having! And that onion video was fantastic! Hahahahaha!!
And I know this is so irrelevant, but can I just say how excited and happy I am that my significant other proposed to me last night! (I'm just very ecstatic since yesterday) :)

Mariel said...

Hi Joanna!
I always look at your blog for an injection of joy and optimism; I really like your positive attitude, and I start considering you as a virtual friend whose news you can't wait to hear. This weekend I'm mainly trying to avoid freezing (hope hot chocolate will help), but the next week end I'll come to New York! It's a big trip, considering I come from Italy, and I'm both excited and worried. Can I ask you some tips about the weather, the New Year's celebration (is Times Square the worst idea?) and the City in general? Obviously I'm searching for information throghout the web, but I'd like to have some advices from someone who lives here...just some words, I do not want to bother you! Thank you so much and best wishes

Erin @ SYL: Slipcover Your Life said...

Happy weekend! I had lost enthusiasm for Project Runway but last season made me fall in love again!

Joanna Goddard said...

hi silvia! thanks for your sweet comment. if you write me an email (my email address is on the blog -- hellojoannagoddard at gmail dot com), you'll get an instant reply with my favorite NYC restaurants and shops, actually. i'll also be doing a NYC guide in the new year. and people seem to like Times Square for new year's eve, although i'm so claustrophobic that i'm probably not the best person to ask about that! :) i hope you have a WONDERFUL trip!! xoxo

jesska said...

I clicked on one of these links, then slowly made my way through the rest - all great tips, thank you!

urbanngirl said...

Monica said...

Funny you mentioned that J.Crew dress! I have it saved under favourites as I'm thinking about it:)Hope you had a great weekend!

Maria Ana said...

I really like the way you manage your blog!

TinaGreece said...

Thank-you so much Joanna! I hope my wedding will be half as enchanting as yours surely was!

Megan said...


As usual you hae a great eye - love this list. But a turducken? So wrong on so many levels. Yuck! :)

Mary-Laure said...

As I can see from your previous (wedding kiss) post, you are still in the mood for wedding romance, so you might want to check out my post about my sister's wedding in Paris last week:
It was blissful!
