Have a great weekend.

What are you doing this weekend? My birthday is coming up soon (eeks!) so we're having a cozy dinner at home on Saturday. I'm also getting a haircut today, and can't wait to get my hair washed. (I always half fall asleep:) Hope you have a good one, and here are a few fun posts from around the web...

A cabin in Brooklyn!

Lace earrings.

Humblebrag is the funniest thing I've seen in ages.

How to create a smoky eye in 2 steps.

For when you're really, really hungry...

Homemade Skor bars.

NYC door knockers.

What a cute book--and reassuring!

Jenny is revealing her DIYs for our bedroom makeover. (She's a genius.)

Would love to try this restaurant.

Photo pillows.

How to throw yourself a pity party.

Now that's a tattoo.

Movies in a different era.

Happy Birthday!!!! the best part of getting your hair cut is the massage they slip in after washing it, ahh the best!

Katie said...

My sister works at Parm! It's delicious - you should totally go soon!

Amber Shmamber said...

HOLY CRAP! The last link about the movies in a different era is from my future brother-in-law!

What a wonderful way to start a Friday!

Happy Birthday! My birthday is next week and I am getting a haircut this weekend! Hopefully I will be able to have something other than the mom ponytail for a bit! Have a great weekend!!

Gretchen said...

Happy birthday, Joanna! My birthday is also on the 31st! I too am heading for a haircut this afternoon, before I leave the hubby and toddler at home tonight to do a pre-celebration with girlfriends :)

Carlen said...

Happy birthday! Thanks for sharing the movies in a different era link. Those were so amazing!

Elizabeth said...

So, what will you do for your birthday? Do you have any favorite traditions? Russia has an unfortunate tradition of the birthday boy/girl actually paying for everyone else to have lunch!

StephV said...

I love the giraffe photo! Just made me giggle at my desk...my fiance calls me a giraffe bc I have a long neck...I know, very flattering :) The joke has turned into him buying me everything giraffe he can find! Have a lovely weekend!

Katie said...

My birthday is coming up soon too, and I LOVE getting haircuts :). I always love the friday post! Have a great weekend Jo!

Bahahaha. The best part of humblebrag is the profile picture: The self pat on the back. Love it.

Annie said...

Loved the movies from a different era and the humblebrag was brilliant. Just imagine actually being Kanye or Willi.am. The world must be a disappointment.
Enjoy the birthday.

Tragic Sandwich said...

I'm getting a haircut, too! (I think--I need to confirm with the salon, because I rescheduled an earlier appointment.)

So I'm doing that, and taking the dog to the groomer. Mr. Sandwich and I are going to pick up my watch at the repair shop and take Baguette to a playground.

That's all Saturday. Sunday we have no plans, but I'm sure he'll be going on a training run for the L.A. Marathon--unless his cold gets a lot worse.

wonderchris said...

<3 that giraffe...he can come live with me...I'd find a way to make it happen.

Alexa said...

Parm is delicious!! I tried it last week. I went classic with the chicken parm sandwich, but I have heard that you really can't go wrong there :)

Hey, I just got back from a haircut. Is it haircut day? Happy Almost Birthday. I LOVE your Friday posts!
Cheers.

mary said...

You need to take the plunge with the tattoo Joanna! You so clearly love them!! I have two little ones behind my ear and on my wrist, and even if I got tired of them it would never matter because they're not often seen!

Hardly Housewives said...

Your bedroom looks so great! The duvet is awesome ... and perfect.

I know that "Skor" bar recipe...only I use matzoh crackers instead! It's DELICOUS.

Cheers to a happy weekend,
Mindi

I keep saying I will cut my hair into a new style. But it is long and so easy to deal with on hot days and a pony tail will get you anywhere .. sigh.
I hope there is a Before/After photo session for us to see ?
I love the Smokey Eye tutorial :)
I do mine that way but the brush was great, I have to get a better one than the little thing I use.
Happy Birthday early.... which is so much better than a late Happy Birthday :)
besitos, C

Tbadee said...

I would rather get a head massage than a regular massage any day. Getting hair shampooed is the best! Enjoy your cosy dinner. My husband is cooking his mother's delicious roast chicken recipe this weekend

Meatballs at Parm sounds great!

Happy Birthday Joanna!

I was inspired by your Pinterest to start my own and then sadly realized that there is a waiting list if you're not invited by someone else. :( I was wondering if you (or some other kind pinboard-er out there) could invite me?

Smokey Eyes said...

Happy Birthday Joanna! What a great way to treat yourself on your birthday by getting your hair done. I can totally relate to falling asleep when the stylist is washing your hair because I've done it too! Have a fabulous day =)

Interior Design said...

Thanks for sharing this list. I have a good time going through it all. How's your week end?

Anonymous said...

I always look forward to the posts before you leave us for the weekend. Not because you'll be leaving us. Just because of the list of cool things you share. :) Unfortunately my computer was broken until this afternoon so I'm JUST FINALLY getting around to checking it out! Yay.
Because I just so happened to have also stumbled upon an eye-opener of a tattoo... I must share. http://c-a-m-b-u-r.tumblr.com/post/16185678319

tiffany jewellery said...

Its like you read my mind! You appear to know so much about this, like you wrote the book in it or something. I think that you could do with some pics to drive the message home a little bit, but other than that, this is great blog. A great read. I will certainly be back.
