Have a relaxing weekend.

What are you up to this weekend? My mom is coming to visit from Michigan, and we're having a ladies night. (We're thinking dinner here followed by this movie). I can't wait to see her. Hope you have a great weekend, and here are a few fun posts from around the web...

A song for your weekend.

Canned air from New York and Paris. That's all.

This perfume sounds fantastic.

This squeaky door sounds like Miles Davis.

Is Bill Murray's party tour for real? That's so weird/awesome!

An outdoor shower in NYC.

Dancing like a 4-year-old.

Perfect.

Vacation placemats.

Pinterest is making me hungry.

People really want the president's beer.

Make your own tote.

Want to be Facebook friends? (P.S. Toby went on a date!)

And finally, on a more serious note, how devastating about the shooting at the Empire State Building today. My heart goes out to the victims and their families.

awwww "don't think twice, it's all right" is my *favorite* bob dylan song, and easily one of my favorite songs ever :)

Luisa Brimble said...

the dancing 4-year old will surely start a new dance trend. ps. heard about the shooting at the Empire State Building via twitter today. so so sad.

There's nothing quite as fun or as special as a ladies night out with your mom. Love. =)

Oh I hope the Billy Murray tour is for real. What fun!

I wish Bill Murray were on a party crashing tour, but unfortunately it looks like it is not the case. http://chicagoist.com/2012/07/11/bill_murray_is_not_embarking_on_a_p.php

Too bad-- I'm visiting my in-laws in Atlanta during the date listed there. I'm sure my MIL would LOVE to go to a Bill Murray karaoke party!

Sounds lovely to have your mom in town. This weekend is my boyfriend's and my three-year anniversary! We're brainstorming wild ideas, but I don't think we're quite ready for a trapeze class yet like you and Alex... some of the rides at the State Fair might be death-defying enough for us!

How funny, we're off on a canoeing adventure on Sunday!

Diana Mieczan said...

Aww..the photo of Toby and his little friend melts my heart! How adorable:) Have a great weekend. xoxo

Ladies nights are good for the soul! Sounds like such fun.

Favorite favorite song....always have to listen twice when it comes up at random on my ipod. (p.s. have you watched Friday Night Lights? best use of a song in t.v., in my opinion!)

Barbara said...

Thanks for the Dylan memory!
I'm making herbal vinegars this weekend, going out east for a day, hiking and perhaps a candlelight dinner.
Have a great one!

Arielle said...

Your dinner choice looks amazing! A big plate of bruschetta for dinner... YES PLEASE!!!!

Manda said...

My Mom is living in Michigan as well- wish she was coming for a visit!

Have a blast!!

I work across the street from the empire state building, and arrived minutes after the shooting. It was terrifying, and upsetting...it's hard to focus today! Anyone have uplifting songs, or a cute joke??
p.s. a pressed panini from ino's is what i need. right. now.

Marsi @ The Cottage Cheese said...

Yay for the Dylan link! One of my favorite songs ever :-) Sadly, I notice that Bil Murray will not be crashing a party in my town.

So very sorry to read about the Empire State Building shootings. I'm saddened and troubled by the repeated (generally somewhat random) news of shootings like this. Heavy sigh.

Robyn said...

fab -have a great time with your mum!

VintageDanielle said...

I hope you have a relaxing time with your Mom. The movie looks like a hoot.

Marty and Julia said...

Unknown said...

Oooh I bought that perfume the other day - roller tube size from sephora. It's amazing, I loove it!

Allison McGregor said...

Joanna, you are endlessly charming. I love your blog and have been reading it for nearly a year. You are seriously what I imagine the online persona of Kate Middleton to be - funny, classy, tasteful and playful. Your blog touches on topics that are not unique within the blogosphere, but you manage to give these topics some very characteristic charm. Thanks for the reads and have a lovely weekend!

Lindsey McLean said...

That perfume is awesome! Perfect for spring. :)

H. Grace said...

I love that song first of all. And, second your weekend sounds much more relaxing then mine. I have orientation for school tomorrow and classes starting Tuesday. Ahh,the summer went too fast.

Lauren said...

I love the Clean brand. Simply Soap isn't nearly as good as Provence. Try it!

Jody said...

Have a wonderful weekend with your mom! So pleased that you included a note about the Empire State Building shooting. That's what keeps your blog real and relavant (for me at least:)).

My daughter's birthday party is this weekend-at a horse farm!

Joanna! That Miles Davis door just cracked me up! And then I couldn't stop worrying about you having to endure that footage of the guy in the elevator:)

Kızlık zarının kanamasıyla ilk ilişki olduğu düşüncesi çok yanlış bir düşünce olup Tıp'a aykırı oldu bilinmektedir. Bazen doğuştan kızlık zarının olmadığı da bilinmekte fakat esnek olması sebebiyle de kanamanın olmayacağı bilinir.

the perfume link doesn't seem to be working?

I SO wish I lived in the USA so Bill could come to my party!
