Have a great weekend!

What are you doing this weekend? We're going to scout out a grilled cheese truck and hit up an Easter egg hunt, but otherwise we're just lying low--or "knocking about," as Alex says. Sometimes the laziest weekends are the best, don't you think? Hope you have a good one (and Happy Easter and Passover), and here are a few fun posts from around the web...

A song to kick off your weekend.

Ombre chair.

Animal pizzas.

It's a bird...it's a plane...no, it's Ryan Gosling!

Now that's a pinata.

Tomboy Style is now an awesome book.

LOVE these neon sandals.

The evolution of cheerleaders.

Would you wear an orange wedding dress?

Three words I never thought I'd say together: Cool sandwich wraps.

Beautiful jewelry.

Well, hello.

Viking Wives made me laugh out loud. And this video, made to appeal to women, is hilarious. (Thanks, Jason)

For anyone in NYC, Sunday Suppers is back!

And thank you to Manhattan Magazine for featuring me in their article about 5 influential NYC bloggers. Very honored and excited.

I'm "knocking" about with my family by dying Easter eggs, eating lots, and going to my boys Tball games! Enjoy your Easter weekend!!

Happy Easter!

That orange wedding dress is AMAZING. A-maz-ing. And her bob is so effortlessly chic. Who says only long hair can be sexy? I've been thinking of getting a haircut for awhile - those picture have inspired me!

Happy Easter, Joanna!

MouseClark said...

Orange wedding dress!! Wowzers!!

Such a beautiful and striking wedding. Love it.

Brightened up my Friday. Thanks so much.

I've always wanted to get food from a food truck! There are a few in Boston, just haven't gotten the chance to get anything. Guess I'll have to soon :) Hope your weekend is lovely!

Joanna, I always like to read when other media outlets do interviews on you...it's very inspiring. :)

isabug said...

Smorgasburg in Williamsburg is back this weekend too! Will definitely be heading there for some tasty treats :)

lazy weekends can be unexpectedly relaxing. Have a goodone.

Trina said...

P.S. Next time you're in the Bay Area, you should check out the American Grilled Cheese Kitchen. It's right by the PUBLIC Bikes retail store.

Sandra said...

Love the grilled cheese and the Sunday Supper recommendations...will be using both on my next trip to NYC soon, soon, soon.

After all these years and so many trips, always on the lookout for something new to do!

I love low key weekends, have a great one!

There's such a thing as a grilled cheese truck? (!!)
Something about trucks and food. Yum, yum!
Have a splendid Easter weekend!

Zoë said...

Ohhhhh I love the Magnetic Fields! Do you know "You You You You You" by the Sixths? Another Stephen Merritt band, and it's such a sweet song.

Julie said...

I was so waiting to hear something Eastery mentioned in this post. :) Totally wish a grilled cheese truck existed in my area -- have fun!

Dania said...

so crazy how cheerleaders have changed, & there are less and less material on them now a days...

AP said...

One of my MOST favorite Magnetic Fields songs :) The Book of Love was our wedding song! Have you seen the documentary on Stephin Merritt? It's pretty good.

Ladies Holiday said...

Ombre hair? Chair? Not sure which I like better...Ombre tights...yes please.

Happy Friday Joanna- grilled cheese truck sounds amazing! BTW that nike ad... ugh. I wish it didn't have to move. I don't mind the ads at all on the sides. But why do they have to make it move? I think it's evil.

Anne-Marie @ Do Not Faint said...

If you are ever in New Haven, CT, we have the most amazing grilled cheese truck. When we catch them at the farmer's market, all the ingredients come from the venders! The chef buys them that morning when he arrives. Pretty amazing!

LOVE that ombre chair, i'll be ading that to my never-ending list of DIY projects. There's a popular grilled cheese truck here in Miami, called Ms. Cheezious; their apple and havarti grilled cheese is mind-blowing deelish! Come to Miami on your next trip and check them out haha. Happy Easter weekend to you too!

Rachel said...

The orange dress is gorgeous, especially in the photo by the water where the texture and folds are reminiscent of Leighton's "Flaming June."

Also...happy Passover to Jewish peeps.

The viking video...
"Did you wash?"
"Every Saturday!"

Happy chocolate bunny weekend :)
Thanks for sharing the Magnetic Fields song: it's a great pop ditty!

Melissa Blake said...

oooh, grilled cheese sounds soooo good right about now! are you one of those people who puts all different kinds of cheeses on it? I tend to stick with American cheese.

Happy Easter! xoxo

Kate said...

Such fun links! Have a great weekend, Jo, and happy Easter! x

Happy Easter, Joanna! :)

Milk Truck is often parked right by my apartment on the weekends!

My favorite truck is Mexicue. The food is delicious. If you ever try it, the burrito bullets and green chili mac & cheese are the way to go. (It is often parked in the Food Truck Court behind the World Financial Center.)

Have a great weekend!

johanna said...

oh what a great choice of magnetic fields weekend song!

Kelly said...

I love that song. I just saw the Magnetic Fields in NY at the Beacon Theater Wednesday night with my boyfriend! It was awesome; we're pretty big fans.

Love the orange wedding dress!

Mine was fuchsia. :)

teeny said...

WOW. That wedding post blew me away! I'm in the mist of planning mine and I can appreciate her ability to go against the grain and think outside of the box. Inspiring. The colors are to die for.....

Thank you for sharing!

Joanna Goddard said...

Zoë , yes!! my friends know him well (she used to be his assistant, what a dream job!!) and HE PLAYED IT AT THEIR WEDDING!!!!! can you even imagine??!!!!

Joanna Goddard said...

AP, i actually interviewed him once, and it was such an honor. i was so nervous. for this story about how he only dresses in brown:) http://nymag.com/fashion/08/spring/44210/index4.html

Joanna Goddard said...

thank you, joanne! what a cool link!!

Tina said...

Is the Jalouse video supposed to be a joke? Perhaps my sense of humor is off but I feel like it does little more than make young women look disgustingly vapid. As a strong, intelligent woman, who also enjoys fashion, I'm feeling a bit off-put by the whole thing.

With love... said...

Have a great weekend. Greeting from the Caribbean. xx

Sarah said...

Love the wedding dress. Gorgeous. Her bridesmaids outfits on the other hand, I do not care for. I love the idea, but they just didn't work well on all of the women and being able to see where the tops were tucked in really bothered me. Better to do a one piece dress, in such thin silky fabric. The bride was beyond gorgeous though. Perfect dress, perfect color, perfect hair and makeup. Love!
Happy easter.

grilled cheese sounds so great. Have a wonderful wekeend.

Kristina Rose said...

I love 1:26 in context with the rest of the subtitles in the Jalouse video. Thanks for sharing!

Just wondering about the picture for the Have a great weekend post, is that a photo with French actor Alain Delon?

Inspired by Cup of Jo, I'm getting going with my blog about being a new mum in Amsterdam! http://thisamsterdamday.blogspot.com/

Happy Easter all. xx

Joyce said...

haha Joanna you are too cute!
It's not spelled Pinata it's Piñata, hit that control button and then press N.
I learned thanks to this guy: https://www.facebook.com/pages/OptionCommandLearn/320061698028103

I think you wrote somewhere that you have an mac, hope this is helpful to anyone else!

Kate said...

If I were as pretty as that bride, I'd wear an orange wedding dress! In New Mexico, piñatas are so common we often go a little overboard to make them unique. We can find a piñata to whack every weekend if we wanted, but, alas, my scale would disagree with that choice!

Mandy said...

I'm dying for those neon sandals! Hope you have an awesome weekend :).

Thanks for turning me on to Tomboy style.

I love Charlotte Rampling. Have a great weekend.

OMG, that cross-stitched screen is amazing. I would love to walk through that door.

Alexa said...

Another Australian and I DID wear an orange wedding dress, in 2007. Maybe it's just a thing over here.

{Liana} said...

Jo, congrats on being listed among the 5! You're an inspiration, but most of all you're a joy! SO I tune in and am so happy to see your posts as they come in. That orange dress {the bride, the setting, her bridesmaids, etc} is beyond awesome! Just goes to show that when you're true to you the color of the dress doesn't matter.

Happy Easter

I loved the evolution of cheerleading! I used to be a cheerleader in high school and found those photos to be insane!It's crazy how much it has changed.

I also loved, loved, loved the "film to appeal to women". What a great concept! I couldn't stop laughing!

All-in-all, good weekend post!

Congratulations on that feature! You would have seen it coming ;)

Hope you had a grand Easter weekend.

Cheers

Kristen said...

The wedding dress is gorgeous. If I recall correctly, orange was typically worn by brides in ancient Rome.

keltiecolleen said...

Congrats on the article!

I spent my Easter Sunday collecting a gallery of my favorite pastel colored ballerina inspired fashion. Tutu's, shoes and amazing corset pieces.

I would be honored if you would take a peak!!!

I just had to comment on this one! I just gave birth a few months ago and didn't find out the sex at all (until the very end)! My husband and I just believed (even before we were pregnant) that finding out the sex of your child is one of the last few genuine surprises left on this earth. So much in our lives is predictable.cheap prom dresses
