Have an adventurous weekend!

My sweet readers, what are you up to this weekend? Alex and I are actually escaping to Los Angeles and Palm Springs for a week, for a final vacation before the baby arrives. We rented this cottage in L.A., and will be staying at the Ace Hotel in Palm Springs. I'm so excited to go swimming and just relax. Next week, I've scheduled some favorite photographs to post every day, so please continue to visit, if you'd like. Meanwhile, here are a few great posts from around the web...xoxo

Oh my goodness, this baby was born in a CAB!

Spring lip colors.

Yummy-looking sandwich.

Green postcards. (Just add water.)

Love this braid.

Funny cafe sign.

This post makes me so wanderlusty!

Pretty print.

This made me laugh.

"I'd Rather Be Thrifting." (I know about twenty girls who need that print.)

Cute sailing tee.

San Francisco is so gorgeous.

The Luther burger would give you a heart attack but it might be worth it.

What a playful wedding.

Bonus for all readers: Journelle, an amazing lingerie shop (and one of this month's sponsors), is offering 15% off with the code CUPOFJO.

Plus, five Cup of Jo posts you might have missed:
* Twenty-four different accents.
* Wedding makeup.
* Cacio e Pepe.
* Side knot.
* Seagull bag.

Joanna, this is hilarious! I'm planning a Venice getaway weekend for a couple of weeks from now, and was *thisclose* to booking that exact cottage yesterday. In the end we went with a different one, but it does look adorable. Have a fun vacation!

I'm one ten page paper away from spring break. I can't wait to be done with winter semester! I'm not going home for spring break, instead I'm staying at school. I plan to relax, work on a few articles, and get my hair done! Enjoy your trip! I'm jealous.

The cottage looks fab!

I was just at the Ace Palm Springs last weekend. It was great, but I would like to suggest earplugs and a mask. The windows are really bright.

The Wanderers' Daughter said...

What a perfect place to be this time of year - just when the desert should be starting to bloom! Enjoy!

Enjoy Santa Monica! I live off of Montana and absolutely love it. Weather should be great, too.

the hubs and i LOVE palm springs. we were on a roadtrip and planned on being in the area for a few days and have ended up here for a few months now!

haven't been to the ace yet, but couldn't recommend the viceroy more. have a chicken salad sandwich by the back pool -- soo lovely (when we were there, miley cyrus and her boy toy were making out in the hot tub, but otherwise it was totally lowkey and not sceney).

and definitely drive through joshua tree if you have time! the 29 palms inn (just outside of joshua tree) is quite something too.

Christina said...

Have fun!

Giselle Fryatt said...

I'm born & raised in Palm Springs! Here is what you can't miss out on: Native Foods (my absolute favorite restaurant & hey it's vegan!), Joshua Tree (now you have to go to the Nation Park, but also on your way there is a place called Pappy & Harriet's in Pioneer Town, it is a cute little bar/restaurant you'll fall in love with!), and if you guys are up for a little drive go up the tram or drive up to Vista Point they both overlook the Coachella Valley.. it beautiful at night. Also you must go hiking since this is the only time of year the weather allows it (go to indian canyon or painted canyon)

Also I lived in Santa Monica for a year, you HAVE to go to Swingers it is the best restaurant, you will just adore the decor!

& have fun soaking up the rays!

Jen said...

Aw, how nice you're taking a week away together before the baby's arrival! Enjoy... it sounds and looks lovely.

JBeaudetStudios said...

Have a great time! I just got back from L.A. a few weekes ago and even though it rained a few times the weather was so nice! And it's so beautiful there! (ok maybe I'm a bit bias cuz that's where I grew up:)) Take care! Jennifer:)

Jenny said...

Life with Kaishon said...

Kelly's Adventures said...

Welcome to California, its been beautiful, a little breezy which causes us Californians to put on a sweater but you'll think that's crazy I'm sure

{gypsycab} said...

my friday blog post was about flying away, like a bird but a plane works just as well! have a wonderful weekend, well deserved:)

Lisa said...

Yay for vacations! I've been wanting to go to Palm Springs for a while, hope you have an amazing time!

Desiree Fawn said...

Have a most fantastic vacay!!

Jess said...

Have fun! I'm jealous - I wish I was going on vacation too! My husband is in Vegas right now, with some friends, and I am sitting at home while it's raining outside :(

But, have fun. And by the way, you look just beautiful with your baby bump!


Ameya said...

Enjoy your trip!!

It's funny, now that i've had my baby, stories of having babies in weird places isn't that big of a deal. My labor was under 2 hours & the midwives & nurses didn't do anything but help me not to tear, so it really wouldn't have been much different if born in a cab or bathtub or something!

Nadders23 said...

California! Have tons of fun! I love it there! I loved checking out all the links and have added way too many new blogs to my feed! Thanks for posting all those great links! You and Chelsea Fuss are my blogging idols! Love you! xoxo

Claire said...

I am SO JEALOUS!!! The weather is appalling here in NYC. Wind + Rain = Misery.

Mélanie said...

Is it a babymoon ??? I hope you really enjoy your time together before you're getting to be 3

Laura Trevey said...

I am envious! I would love to see pictures of the cottage :)


wishful nals said...

Don said...

Just found your blog. Great links!

Bri said...

that sounds perfect! have a happy holiday! =)

Clare said...

Oooh, I hope you have a lovely time, that cottage looks beautiful!

Good luck with the baby too :)



Rea said...

have a nice babymoon:-)

happened also in December in Hungary

(actually the driver was on the phone with the dispatcher - they record the conversations - and you can hear the actual phone conversation and the labor)

Rea said...

baby born @ 1.24

Cafe Fashionista said...

Hope you're having a magical weekend, my love!! :)

Maki said...

BTW, I saw your baby belly photo - you're all belly! Stunning Joanna!

oh, hello friend. said...

Yolksy said...

Have a wonderful getaway! Venice hopefully you were able to spend some time here this weekend and Ace Hotel and Palm Springs is one of my favorite places ever! Hope you had some fun in the sun:-)

Me said...

Enjoy your romantic vacay! I laughed when I saw this, because several girlfriends of mine and I are going to be at the Ace in Palm Springs this upcoming weekend for my 30th birthday girls' weekend! We've been planning it for awhile, and we're really excited! We may see you there! :)

Nicole Snyder said...

Oh gosh I wish I had seen this. I just got back from Palm Springs, staying at the Ace as well! I was there March 3 through the 6th for my secret elopement in Indio.

Have a lovely time! The weather was perfect when we were there.

jones said...

have such a great getaway - that cottage looks divine.

Regan said...

My husband and I stayed at the ACE Hotel in Palm Springs last year at this time during the first leg of our cross country adventure from LA back to NYC. It was so lovely and whimsical we didn't want to leave!

Make sure to sit by the outdoor fire, get a manicure by the pool and visit the photo booth in the lobby! :)

Phoebe Boots said...

The entire family went to Palm Springs last year and believe me when I say, we had an AMAZING time! Can't wait to visit again soon. Since we're talking about Palm Springs, might I recommend this directory which lists the names of establishments in Palm Springs. It's very helpful for new visitors:

Last year I stumbled across the link for Eunice's wedding (Playful Wedding link in this post) and it's been in the back of my mind ever since as wedding inspiration. For the past two days I was looking through your site trying to find that exact link that I've been obsessing over ever since. I'm so happy I found it and so happy you shared it! Thanks for all of the awesome posts Joanna :) I love your blog and the inspiration it gives me to live a happy life full of love!
