Have a lovely (long) weekend.

My darlings, what are your plans for Labor Day weekend? Alex's mom and sister are visiting for a couple days. Alex's sister is obsessed with a piano bar near our apartment called Marie's Crisis Cafe--where an ex-Broadway actor plays the piano and everyone sings show tunes. Have you ever been there? It's a nutty scene. Meanwhile, hope you have a wonderful weekend, and here are a few great posts from around the web...

Beautiful ship stamps from the post office.

Would you ever elope?

Bag-o-dresses is a cool idea.

Pajama eaters.

Handmade wooden boats.

Win $1000 for your baby. :)

Just a heads up but I think the original Bob Marley quote (if he did say it!) is: "She's not perfect" ...still a lovely sentiment though!

Joanna Goddard said...

oh cool, megling, works both ways!

You always find the best stuff online. Those pajama eaters are too cute. That quote about HIM made me tear up a little!

Good ol' Bob.

Now, I love bag-o-dresses but I also love the bag o' turtle (necks).

And YES - I have been to Marie's...I'll be thinking of you guys:)

that bar sounds like one I went to once when I was in NYC. It was sooooo fun! The people were so talented and it was certainly nutty, but very fun! Have a great weekend. LOVE the Bob Marley quote. God, he's awesome.

Emerson is a genius. Love that bag of dresses!

From Trees Fall Apples said...

That is my dream elopment. Although, I would also love that same scene in winter with snow. looking at how to do that.
Have a lovely long weekend. it's just a two day event here in Oz. But it's fathers day and my dad is stuk in Melbourne working so thats a bit sad.

Wallace said...

I think my friend, Lilly, used that anchor stamp (or something like it) on her wedding invites last year. She did a nautical theme and it was wonderful! I am ordering those stamps at the post office on Tuesday - I love them (and just ran out of stamps!).

I would totally elope... or get married at the court house like one of your recent posts highlighted. I'm pretty low key. Now just have to find the guy. ;)

I loved Marie's Crisis! So, so fun.

Marie's is the best! My former work partner (now my husband--though we were strictly co-workers at the time) used to go there all the time when we were in NYC for work. I am a theatre geek. He is a good sport. One time, this guy named Adam (we met him that night) went into some sort of shock/seizure and the ambulance was called and he got shuttled off to St. Vincent's. About 2 hours later guess who waltzed right back in....ADAM! It's a one of a kind place and one of my favorite spots on the planet. Enjoy! Sing out, Louise!

wildchild said...

that bag o' dresses is such a good idea. and the elopement is gorgeous. seriously. makes me consider it. anddd the pajama eater is such a good idea! i love it. saving it for when i have some babes myself:)

Last Lobster of the season in Ogunquit, Maine- bittersweet where did summer go?

Prippy Handbook said...

I've spent many an evening at Marie's after a few drinks and belting out songs from "Little Shop of Horrors." Some of my favorite evenings, especially when followed by burgers at Corner Bistro recapping our night!

Hope you have a wonderful time :)

LOVE the pajama eaters! I might have to make (or buy) something like this for my little love bug when she gets a bit older.

miriam said...

hi Joanna, actually I have been there!!! I cant believe that you are talking about something in NYC I actually know, because I´m from Czech Republic:)
It was summer 2007, I was visiting my sister (she lives in US) and we went through a few bars... I wasn´t 21 yet but they didn´t check me so I was so excited I could be there and sing with this awesome guy!! :)

hms said...

You live near Marie's Crisis???? I LOVE that place. Nutty doesn't even come close but it's such a great scene.

Ally said...

Bed|stu makes amazing leather loafers! Just ordered a pair.

Having planned a wedding, yes I definitely would elope!

There were only 8 guests at our beach wedding. It was the most stress free wonderful day. The girls spent the morning at the spa and boys went golfing. We had an amazing dinner in a private room at a restaurant on the water. it was perfect.

I'm also on the hunt for the perfect loafer. I love Sperry topsiders. Thanks for the great posts!

I just saw this post and have to reply! When I lived in NYC a few years ago, a friend was visiting me for the weekend and we somehow stumbled upon Marie's. We walked down the stairs into one serious sing-a-long! My friend and I were the only women in the place and realized that we didn't know nearly as many show tunes as we thought . . . but had an absolute blast nonetheless. Fun, fun memories!

Rachael Lamb said...

I've been to Marie's! It was so much fun singing Wicked songs all night.
