Have a relaxing long weekend.

What are you up to this weekend? We're celebrating my mom's sixtieth birthday and crossing our fingers for clear skies. Also, Alex and I watched The Firm this week (he'd never seen it); I forgot how fun and gripping that movie is. Tom Cruise doesn't age! Hope you have a wonderful weekend, and here are a few great posts from around the web...

A song to kick off your weekend.

Mick and Paul, eating apples.

Coolest photo of Obama.

Pretty Parisian.

Pink neon sandals.

Who wants a wine spritzer?

Two adorable dogs.

10 Olympic sports that are ripe for a comeback.

Colored flame birthday candles.

A slinky on a treadmill. Weirdly suspenseful:)

These are such realistic newborn dolls. Creepy?

(Remember these actual newborns?)

Sweet NYC break-up story.

A baby thinks this magazine is a broken iPad.

Hope your mom has a fabulous birthday. Moms are the best.

Robyn said...

some great links- eeek-horrid i-pad video..

but the break -up post...isn't it amazing who we find hard to tell. I am moving soon and I have told everyone..but my yoga teacher...i just can't...

Amanda said...

That break-up story is beautifully written. Heartbreakingly beautiful.

Joanna Goddard said...

robyn, that is so fascinating, yes, we have such special relationships with certain people that you wouldn't always expect. xo

Joanna Goddard said...

thank you, adriane! that photo of you and your baby is so sweet.

Joanna---this is by far my favorite link compilation ever! I always look forward to your Friday posts, but today you have outdone yourself! Particularly, the slinky video, the broken iPad video, and the expressions on the baby dolls faces (my boyfriend got a kick out of those, too!). Not to mention...tug-of-war was an Olympic sport?!? Thank you for your blog, it makes my day.

Mihaeko said...

Wow, I had no idea there was a holiday weekend coming up. I need to come up for air once in a while.

Lindsay @ Darling Clementine said...

That picture makes my hands sweat! That roof needs walls!

The Firm is one of those movies that I'll always stop and watch if I'm flipping through the TV channels.

Stefania said...

The break up story was sad but still it made me laugh. LOVED the slinky haha.

Stephanie said...

The article on the lost Olympic sports was awesome! I would love to see the swimming obstacle course and the tug of war brought back!! I love their idea of using athletes from different sports on the team on the last day--it would be such a fun event to end the Olympics!

ElsaD said...

Happy B-Day to your mum. Hope you guys have a great time! I'm heading to Vegas for the long weekend. I'm particularly excited about Grand Canyon (I still remember your wonderful post 'Do you you worry too much?') XOXO

Anke said...

That image of Obama is priceless! I so hope he'll get reelected.

Lindsay [rookie's nest] said...

Oh my gosh I love all the links you post. Always so fun! happy weekend!

McKenzie said...

Hope the rain clouds hold up for you GUYS TO celebrate. We are hoping to either go to opening weekend at Governors Island or Bklyn Bridge Park and Sunday the Hall of science to meet spiderman for a demonstration with spiderman. Is Toby eyeing superhero's yet? My 19mos. old does just to imitate his big bro.
Your rooftop pic for some reason reminds me of the parties my family used to have back in the 80's with boomboxes, tiny rainbow assorted colored shorts, and those horrible 3 part folding lawn chairs made of plastic that I used to always get my fingers caught in. Lol
Every time I see that pic of Pres. Obama and that young boy and my own 7 year old son, it gives me goosebumps, because for a kid and in this case an African American kid, it's so simple as "HEY YOU'RE JUST LIKE ME!"

Happy Weekend.

I feel like I want to chat about all of these links! (first I want to buy a soft white tutu, then I want to chat)

I've always said I should train in something obscure so I could be the best at it. Maybe "dueling" is my window.

And that break-up story warms my heart. Especially the stream of thoughts she's had in that deli. It made me think of how I look at my husband during our simple weekly moments.

And shoot - can a girl get a good spritzer! thank you! I love it!

Have a great weekend, I hope your Mom feels washed over with love (not rain)

Laura said...

So amazing--I worked in the White House and passed that photo many times, but only just now realized I had worked with that little boy's father--since you can't see him in the photo, I had no idea who he was. Crazy. So glad you linked to that article.

Love, love, love that song. I had to look around to see who was around me when it was playing : ) Very sensual...even though I did not understand 90 % of what they were breathing ( I mean singing ).

Sarah said...

Ya, the newborn dolls are a little too realistic...borderline freaky.

madeline said...

really great links this week! i always look forward to them, but they were extra cool this week. also, i really hate those creepy newborn dolls. they used them in all the the classes we took while pregnant and i always got stuck with the frowning angry ones. oh, and i am sooo glad you have a crush on mick too, otherwise i'd never find such great photos of him :)

Amielle said...

I love these weekend link posts! They're so much fun with so many little treasures. That music link especially. I hope the weather holds out for you and the celebration!

McQuivey prefaced his notion by saying celine outlet shop Apple really needs to do something different to capture celine bag consumer attention in a market where people update their technology less often. That's as opposed Celine Luggage Tote to iPhones, which have become Apple's biggest money-maker Celine Boston Bag due in no small part to their shorter lifecycle among buyers who get them as a Celine Luggage bags discount when signing two-year phone contracts.

You can't jump in the TV business mulberry bags with a new version of the mulberry outlet same thing everyone already has -- even if it is elegant -- and expect millions of people to buy it, especially at price points mulberry factory shop that Apple mulberry handbags will have to maintain in order to keep its margins far away from those of LG and Samsung, " McQuivey said. McQuivey suggests a TV set from Apple would be more like a giant iPad married with Microsoft Kinect, Mulberry Bayswater Bags enabling both touch and gesture controls.

If you are into wine spritz, I highly recommend "Aperol Spritz" to you. It is an extremely popular summer drink here in Munich, Germany. Just mix a bit of Aperol with either chilled white wine or prosecco and add a slice of orange.

I babysat a LOT... before iPads, and saw lots of kids do the same thing. They're learning the difference between 3-d and 2-d by trying to pick the object up.... Seriously, how confusing must 2-d realistic representational photography be?!

Anne said...

That video of the baby and the 'broken iPad' is hilarious! We had the same thing with our baby girl: tv screens, laptop screens... Not working! So funny! Have a nice weekend!

Hannah @ All-Purpose and Semi-Sweet said...

That love story is so well-written, thanks for passing it along!

I have just started an online petition to bring tug-of-war back to the olympics! Thanks for the link Joanna and I hope readers will consider signing at:
http://www.change.org/petitions/the-international-olympic-committee-bring-tug-of-war-back-to-the-olympics
I've never thought about it til now but it really would be the perfect sport at the olympics, and to think it used to be - I never knew!

Sarah said...

It is amazing to watch little ones interact with technology. They learn it so quickly and easily. My 3 year old can navigate an iPad or iPhone so well, its scary! Its so cute to watch their little fingers at work. But, I do find it a bit sad that a child doesn't know how to interact with the paper page. Our house is filled to the brim with books and if one of my kids ever had a "broken iPad" encounter with a book, the techno gadgets would be hidden away in a flash!!

The wine spritzers look tasty! And, I want those birthday candles! How cool!

Thanks for the heads up on Gap too. I am desperately in need of some new summer clothes!

I always look forward to your weekend post, they are part of my saturday morning routine. This weekend I met a guy from NY in Amsterdam and I couldn't resist to ask if he knew you (yeah I know, maybe a little naive for a city with so many people!) But still... Anyway, after I told him about you he promised to check your blog out :)
Thanks for being part of my weekend relaxation!!

Elizabeth said...

Absolutely love the broken iPad video... So adorable!

For this upcoming Friday's "song to kick off your weekend" check out "Do You Remember" by Ane Brun.

Kerri Lynne said...

Those baby dolls are a little TOO realistic...definitely creepy if you ask me! haha

emmlewis said...

I like waiting until Saturday morning to check all your weekend posts with my coffee and croissants in bed :-)

Although, I must say, I played the song and my francophone boyfriend translated the lyrics - quite racy!

Check this song out, hope it makes the cut for a future weekend: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NY-E_aQQWFU
