Have a great fall weekend.

What are you up to this weekend? Tonight Alex and I are taking the freezing cold ferry to Staten Island to see Louis C.K. do stand-up. I'm psyched. Hope you have a wonderful weekend, and here are some fun posts from around the web...

New Yorker article about a strange new thing called "blogging" back in 2000.

Rad do-it-yourself pants.

Thanksgiving cupcakes!

Awww, a birthday post written by a husband.

The subway won't tell people to be patient anymore.

Cute bump photos.

LED slippers are genius.

Cool hair.

A rad article about a street musician.

This banner would be lovely for the end of a party.

Christoph Niemann ran AND sketched the NYC marathon at the same time.

A truly inspiring video.

Have a good one. xoxo

I've been on vacation for the last week (Napa and Salt Lake City) so it's back to Boston and back to reality tomorrow.

Enjoy your weekend!

I'm studying like crazy this weekend, but taking some time off to hang out with friends and celebrate a birthday, also planning my vacation trip to-do list! Your plans look so much fun! Have a good one:)

I heart Joshua Bell--he just performed in recital at the SF Symphony last night! Loved him ever since hearing him play the solos in The Red Violin. And I loved "Pearls Before Breakfast" when it came out--didn't it win the Pulitzer?

Ugh my friend was at that show yesterday! Beyond jealous. Did they say when it'll be on DVD?

abigail said...

you are going to have sooo much fun at Louis C K!

we went last night- for a little date night, and it was really fun. He's a comedic genius, in my opinion. I blogged about our night here: http://tiptoethrough.blogspot.com/2011/10/what-to-watch-louis-c-k.html

and is this the show he is filming to air on his personal website!? Can't wait to see it!

let us know how you liked it!

Oh geez, that guy is too damn funny! And I need those rediculous slippers.

Wow, that article about the street musician is amazing. i also love the quote in it

What is this life if, full of care,
We have no time to stand and stare.
-- from "Leisure," by W.H. Davies

We rush round and we rush around with children who sometimes would dearly love meander and to stop and just look at things that capture their interest. So interesting.

Lisa said...

the Pearls Before Breakfast article was great! It's actually quite a thinker article.
Thanks for passing it on!

It never ceases to amaze me how quickly the seasons change in New York. We just don't get those extremes here in Sydney.

Pergolina said...

this is the perfect weekend to wrap yourself up in a cashmere scarf, go out for soup and warm drinks with friends and just enjoy the transition of the seasons. the quiet before the storm of the HOLIDAYS!

Desi McKinnon said...

So jealous of you and Alex. I hope you enjoy Louis.

KateK said...

That video was truly incredible! I have been in a bit of a rut lately and that video definitely helped put some things into perspective. And I am certainly going on a bike ride as soon as I finish typing this! Thanks for sharing and I hope you and your loved ones have a great weekend!

Joanna, I need your help, I found an image on your website and took it to my hairdresser and now can't find it again!

Am desperate as he made me feel more amazing than ever before ..... the photo you posted was from a photographer on etsy of a girl in her mid-twenties (i think) sitting slightly profile.

PLEASE HELP!

Daniela said...

Thanks for those cool links... specially the video... really loved it :)

Molly @ The Nesting Game said...

Just wanted to say thank you for the Pinhole Press recommendation and discount.

I just ordered a wedding album for my parents and was SO impressed with the quality. My images are fairly desaturated and look AWFUL printed on a home printer, but my photographer assured me they would print better at a higher quality. Pinhole did not disappoint!

The only bummer is, in the big spread of our whole family, I realized that I'd accidentally used a shot where my stepmother's eyes were closed! As she is an INCREDIBLY, shall we say... particular person, I knew she would have a fit over it and any good intentions in giving the album would be for nothing. So I replaced the image and am having the album printed AGAIN! But, since the quality is so nice, I'm okay with paying twice. (And will give the other album to my aunt. :) )

Thanks again for always clueing your readers into the best stuff.
