Have a wonderful weekend.

My darlings, what are you up to this weekend? Alex and I are going to Abbey's house to celebrate Febgiving, which is basically Thanksgiving in February! Her friends made it up. Isn't that a great idea? Hope you have a relaxing weekend, and here are a few great posts from around the web...

The top ten mispronounced foodie words.

Wow, holy bedroom makeover!

What a lovely wedding (with orange shoes).

Oh, Nutella snack drink, where have you been all my life?

Good to know when climbing trees.

Grace Kelly would have liked this pencil skirt.

Flower pinata.

Funny shopping moment in the UK.

Loving J. Crew's "real models" series.

Beautiful bookstore cafe.

Loving these old-school toys.

Another adorable Olympics commercial. What a great song.

The cutest cross-country road trip proposal story.

Plus, five Cup of Jo posts you may have missed.
* A well-dressed autumn.
* Wine tip.
* Venice underwater.
* A quote to remember.
* An Ode to the Indie.

There OUGHT to be a Thanksgiving in February. Heaven knows we need something after Valentine's day to tide us through the long, cold days of winter's end. Enjoy!

Joanna Goddard said...

caroline duke said...

Happy Febgiving + happy weekend, Jo!

Cheers.

Deanna said...

My friends and I celebrated "kegsgiving" in college - basically Thanksgiving with a keg. Not too original, but fun!

Laughter-Loving Stacy said...

What a cute idea! <3

Indie Mom and the Reluctant Banker said...

Great idea. February needs some more holidays. And happy weekend to you too!

Rachel Dangerfield said...

DH Hunter said...

So True, Febgiving is Genius! I am now inspired to take the (delicious) porcini
mushroom gravy (from Thanksgiving) out of the freezer and roast up a chicken to go with. Tonight, we will raise our glasses and toast A Cup of Jo!

Giulia said...

One of my very favorite New Yorker covers -- ever. And I'm old-ish. And I've been getting it for uh, a long time.

good weekend

Hope you have a lovely weekend as well. I swear February would have been such a dread if not for the Winter Olympics to keep me distracted haha, take care!

Hi Joanna!

I haven't signed in, but you might remember me as Monomestile, I used to be a very active reader. 6 months ago I took a job that had me working ALL the time and I haven't been on since. Anyway, last Thursday I lost that job and have had to think "what do I do before I was working all the time?" I remembered your blog and came on today.

I absoloutely forgot how much I love you and your blog and everything you have to say. And when I discovered you were PREGNANT I freaked out!! I am so thrilled for you and your husband! You are a total pick-me-up and I love what you have to share. Sorry for being gone so long, and I'll definately be keeping track from now on.

Picnics and Peonies said...

Thanks so much for visiting my fledgling blog :) Figure skating was awesome!
And yes, I'm SUPER stoked about my trip this summer! I looked at your honeymoon pictures and posts and am totally inspired. What do you think, is Italy a must-visit?
Happy Weekend!

Kara said...

Bookstore cafe is so great. The tables that fold down are very clever! Love it.

FEBGIVING! I was AT febgiving. you linked to my friend Jim's blog! Oh, I knew I liked you miss joannna, and your style. Now I'll make it a point of meeting you next time I'm in new york!

Joanna Goddard said...

We love you Jo.

LINA AND GERI!

rachel said...

Have a lovely weekend, Joanna!

Abbey said...

yay!!! I can't wait!!!!

Gali said...

Don't worry, you're not missing much by not having the Nutella/drink thing available close to you. The ice tea is pure sugar there... it's quite annoying when trying to quench your thirst after having the Nutella + cookie sticks.

But it's a thing everyone must try at least once!

Kate NG Sommers said...

Okay, you inspired me to post about our Febgiving last weekend!

craftysunday said...

my family has a february holiday, too: frostivus (festivus + my mom's family name). each year has a theme (last year was pirates, this year "freedom"? hmmm). it's food, fun, and definitely a break from the bleak weather of february!

Whatever Dee-Dee wants said...

Nicole Marie said...

Ms. Wife of the Year said...

The "real model" series? If you ask me, they are real models, no quotation marks...

Juliana said...

DH Hunter said...

Mission accomplished, we had a great Febgiving last night! Who doesn't love a beautiful roast chicken? The 10
mispronounced foodie words were a fun addition to the table too :) cheers!

Claire said...

McNally Jackson's is one of my favorite places in the city to hang out in. They have seats all over the tiny bookstore so you don't even have to buy anything at the cafe if you want to read. I just wish I lived nearer there. You live in the Village don't you? It's just across town.

christa elyce said...

Febgiving was started as a means for the nation to celebrate my birth! jk! lol!

Cafe Fashionista said...

Oh, Febgiving sounds like the most fabulous thing ever - I want to establish such a day myself! Hope you're having a wonderful weekend, my love!! :)

Woah! I missed the Venice flooding buisness. How? Anyway, those are great photos, there's something alarmingly beautiful about a flooded Venice.

It might be a New Yorker cover, but that looks identical to the Washingto DC metro train. Especially with the orange seats. I'm pretending its me commuting to work in DC :)

I am so happy I came across that nutella link. That nutella snack drink is the most amazing thing ever. If shipping wasn't $20.00, I just might order it...You should go to Buon Italia in NY and tell me how it is.......http://www.buonitalia.com/default.aspx/act/catalog.aspx/subcategory/Nutella/category/Sweets+%26+Cookies/browse//MenuGroup/Home.htm
