Have an adventurous weekend.

My sweets, what are your plans for this weekend? This afternoon I'm getting a massage! It was my Mother's Day present, and I'm finally going. I'm soooo excited. (Have you ever tried one of these?) Hope you guys have a great weekend, and here are a few fun posts from around the web...

What a stunning Indian wedding. The details are mind-blowing.

Pretty earrings.

Grass globe illusion in Paris.

Love this wedding print.

Street-style jumps!

Sweet new stationery.

Rad rooftop playground in Copenhagen (of course).

Two pretty tops for date nights: blue and polka-dot.

The steepest rollercoaster! (Watch the video at 1:35, eeeeeeeks!)

Great birthday cake.

I wish this sailor dress came in grown-up sizes.

This made me laugh.

Wonderful advice about what to say to someone who's sick.

Have a good one, my darlings! xoxo (P.S. For any early readers, sorry about the original post that went up, it was definitely a draft!:)

Sounds like you've got a great weekend planned. Have fun! And thanks for all these awesome links. I feel like I haven't had much internet time this week, and I'm thankful to catch up here.

Joanna, it seems like someone may have hacked your blog again. Your Friday post seems strange. I hope not!

Jennifer said...

Yes, something's very strange about this post... I hope no one got to your site again!

Lorraine said...

Not your usual blog post, no hacking I hope xx

BODIE and FOU said...

Oh I love this photo of Jane Birkin & Gainsbourg! I also added your family portrait to my interest (the B&W one when you were all in Cornwall), it had such a nice happy vibe...

Have a great weekend Jo!

The grass globe is blowing my mind! How awesome is that?!

Really loved the advice about what to say to someone who's sick.

This will be a weekend of trying to stay out of the intense Oklahoma heat. Spending my weekend at my easel.

Melissa Blake said...

Lovely links, Joanna! Hope you enjoy your massage! :)

laco said...

i just adore your lists of fun things you find. and i'm thinking of making that same birthday cake as magnus for my 30th birthday. no better way to feel like a kid again! cheers!

Julie said...

Loved seeing the draft version! Interesting to see your process. : ) As usual, love the Friday round up. I look forward to it all week!

MAUD said...

teehee, i read the earlier draft, which was kind of fun - seeing how your posts look like before your readers can get to them!

ps. that marriage print made me giggle :)

Cath said...

Such a great list. The roller coaster video nearly made me poop my pants... I almost fell out of one when I was little! Oh hell no to roller coasters, is what I say. And that Keep Calm poster -> perfect.
Also- and on a slightly more serious note- the "What to say to someone who's sick" article reminded me of how people comment on Facebook postings wherein a person shares their medical reports (which is an issue all its own) with: Sad faces, "cheer up", "sending prayers" and so on. It can be so silly and can have such a sort of blatant disconnect. These article suggestions are good ones, though.
Okay, back to looking at the Indian wedding details... holy geez!
Enjoy a wonderful weekend!

Laura Nelson said...

that head scratcher thing gives me chills every time i try it, hahaha :) A massage sounds so nice, I give them all week at work and don't get very many in return :)
This weekend Im going camping at my home town where I grew up with the beautiful Mt. Shasta peaks towering over the town :) Im excited!

As usual, great links!! Loved the cake (under construction) and the keep calm poster (ahahahahahahaha - they are all over the blogosphere!!!) Gotta say my fav is the advice about ill people. Very very very usefull, and written with so muche sincerity! Have a wonderful weekend!

Jilly said...

Aww..that tiny sailor dress is so adorable and the Indian wedding is stunning. There is something so magical about henna tattoos that I truly adore. Have a great time today, Joanna. Kisses

Joanna Goddard said...

maraca, such a funny idea to use it on a baby! :) and jill, thank you, that is so, so nice.

Oh Yes!
I love my head-massager and I recently gave one to my friend as well. Her in-laws tested it at the party and their expressions were the high-light of the evening

Katie said...

A massage sounds like heaven, I hope you enjoy it!

Samantha said...

Saw a baby girls sailor dress just like that one, except red, at the thrift store for 2.99. It had these cute little anchor buttons down the front. Maybe I should go back.

Eee that coaster video was scary - even just watching it in bed!

EL said...

you really should take a vacation in copenhagen, you would love it!

The Style Spook said...

I love the roller coaster idea. Way too fun! And sailor anything is so dope! I am making orchid and live plant decorations for my very happy un-birthday party with girlfriends where we;ll be crafting, having a tea party, playing dress up, taking Polaroids, rating lavish french pot-lucked food, making tons of cupcakes to devour and enjoying champagne. I heart the cava! I also plan to put all the paper lanterns up and to go to a leather and beach store to get supplies for my next project and in between, I must replace my broken camera so I can keep blogging and not post too many i-phone pics all week smh! lol! Enjoy your weekend and take lots of pictures for me and all the other bloggers who have cameras are out of commission.

LOVE the wedding pictures and the grass globe!

Elisa said...

massages, love them! i try to get one at least once a month. Hope you schedule yourself another one.

this weekend, we went to the pool with Beli, then attended a retirement party for a dear friend at a lovely home out in the country. Today we are going to the farmer's market then later in the afternoon having some fro-yo with some friends.

Your vacation photos from your trip to England were beyond amazing! that was a good prank to play on your brother..hehe

dear joanna
every friday, i get very excited because i know you'll have a sweet picture/message and bunch of cool links waiting for me

but do they all have to be cool?
i read the links, wanting to click on 2-3, but then somehow i have all of them open on my dash.

seriously: its a problem, esp. when i open a link and have to click on even more links!!!

sometimes my safari even "unexpectedly" shuts down!! :(

so please joanna,

please write less interesting-sounding blurbs and stop having so many cool things to introduce me to.

it takes up hours of my time that i could be using to study or work out or something.

thanks.

Nina said...

Hi Joanna, I seriously LOVE you!!! I just love your thoughtful and happy posts. I really liked the photos from the Indian wedding and would like to know more about the beautiful couple.
Kisses to you and your family :)

Hi Jo ! I just wanted to post a little comment to tell you that i really enjoy reading your blog. I discovered it a couple of years ago, and stopped following websites for a while. A week ago I re-discovered it by chance and was so happy to see that you are still a fantastic blogger. And what a surprise to see that you have now a wonderful baby boy ! I am reading your blog like it's a novel. For now I'm in December 2009 ;-)
Btw, je suis française, et en ce moment même je suis en train de manger du Roquefort. True story. BIG thoughts for you cheese lover !
Je t'aurais bien écrit tout en français, mais je n'étais pas sûre que tu le parles couramment (je n'ai pas trouvé d'indice concluant) !
Je t'envoie plein de bisous, à toi et à ta jolie famille.
