Have a great weekend.

What are your plans for the weekend? Crazily enough, we're actually getting back on a plane to Atlanta for a long-awaited trip to visit Alex's sister! The weather forecast predicts storms, so bookstores and movies may be in order. If you're in a giggly mood, Demetri Martin's hour-long special premieres on Comedy Central this Saturday at 10pm. He's hilarious, don't you think? Hope you have a great one, and here are a few fun posts from around the web...

Sweet wedding moment.

The Queen talks back to her mom.

Fargo is becoming a TV series!

Antelope Canyon? Holy smokes.

What beautiful street style.

Daydreaming about these shoes.

Lasagna without noodles.

Cute birthday card.

Bill and Hilary's wedding day.

Choosing colors for your home.

What it feels like to fall asleep to a DVD.

Bravo! Diapers.com created a new site featuring only natural products.

Plus, three past posts you might have missed:
* Marshmallow willpower.
* Romantic comedies.
* Breastfeeding in public.

Have a great trip! W're having a date night while my folks babysit our toddler!
We also just moved to DC from ATL. I miss it sometimes. Check out Octane Coffee and The Little Tart Bakeshop over on Memorial if you have some time. The pastries are AMAZING and all ingredients are local! Yum!! And the proprietors love kids, so it's a great morning/midday stop with the little ones, especially on a rainy day.

Warmest welcome from Atlanta! So many recommendations from a surprisingly good place to eat (coming from a former New Yorker, at that). Have a wonderful visit! I hope A's sister shows you the best!

jackie said...

oh my gosh, the hair at the Clinton wedding! I love it.

Molly said...

You must try sublime donuts on 10th street! Have a safe trip!

Yes! The orange dream star :) So good.

my boyfriend came to town to visit so we will be doing lots of movie watching, restaurant trying and cuddling :)

Have a great weekend!

I love that "Retronaut" site - especially this slideshow of "Famous People Hanging out."

Have a great weekend - I love your blog!

Kathy said...

Woops here's the link to the slideshow - http://www.retronaut.co/2011/09/famous-people-hanging-out-ii/

When you're in Atlanta, make sure to have brunch at Murphy's in Virginia Highlands. It's the best! Enjoy!

Laura said...

Atlanta! The Brickstore pub, Swallow at the Hollow music and barbecue, apple orchards in Ellijay, Alon's deli and bakery...I make suggestions because I hope that people chime in. We've lived here for a year (and we only have a year left) and we're always hungry for new things to do/see/eat in Atlanta before we leave.

Slone Ranger said...

Demetri Martin is hilarious - thanks for the heads up!

Jessica said...

Atlanta welcomes you!!! Grant park farmers market on Sunday with a coffee from Octane. Yum. Feather baby in Decatur for the softest clothes. Antico pizza for the real thing when it comes to woodfire, italian ambiance, and watching Georgia Tech kids have fun, it's BYOB and kid-friendly. Fox Brothers BBQ. Sid Mashburn's amazing clothes shop for Alex and the whole West side for design-y goodness...you can get a bit to eat at Star Provisions while you're there. I'm from MN by way of NYC and love it here in ATL.

Jocelyn Pascall said...

So excited about Fargo being a show! I hope it's good, as I love that movie. Have a great time in Atlanta!

Megan said...

Smithsonian is offering 2 free tickets for free museum day tomorrow! I think the High Museum of Art is linked up with them :)

Lady Natalie said...

Kyma, on Piedmont, for dinner. My favorite restaurant in the world. (A greek seafood place)

JCTKitchen- Nouveau Southern. Fried chicken, truffle fries, deviled eggs and cocktails

Taqueria del Sol- just yum. A little noisy, very family- friendly. Amazing guacamole, tacos, and margaritas.

Chelsea said...

Hey Atlanta? You'll be closer to us! Have a blast!

Kate Uhry said...

is that Hanelle in the street style picture? I think it is, she is so pretty and such a talented photographer, with such style!

Kate Uhry said...

HANNELI MUSTAPARTA? I meant to add....

Kate Uhry said...

Oh, and Im going to Atlanta next week to see the opening of my dad's play at the alliance theater, "Apples & Oranges" which will hopefully come to NY.

Lisamarie said...

I would most likely give anything to be able to go tube down a river this weekend with a cold beer in my hand! That picture is absolutely perfect.

Caroline T. said...

Joanna— I'm an Atlanta native (although not living there now), and if you guys have stormy weather, take a look at the High Museum! It's an incredible experience, the art is phenomenal, and it's my favorite place in the whole city. Great for kids and adults alike. Can't wait to see photos!

Elsa de Diego said...

Yay! That means we will have some more travelling posts next week! I'll be hanging out with my parents a lot, as they are going back to Spain next Tuesday! :) Have a great one! xoxo

McKenzie said...

Great photo, I love it! Have an amazing weekend too!

Lovely sharing. ENjoy :)

Katherines Corner said...

wonderful photo. I will be resting ( the grandchildren have worn me out, LOL) and then hopefully a drive to see the Autumn colors. xo

Lashley said...

Those were my wedding shoes! My shoes cost 3 times as much as my dress. Woops

Lashley said...

Also, is that a pipe on the coffee table in the falling asleep animation?

Katie Mellor said...

Where is that dress from in the street style photo? Its gorgeous!

Rachael {all things beautiful} said...

Hope you have a wonderful weekend with Alex's sister! Even if you did just get off a plane! Happy weekend!

Amanda said...

I just love that the falling alseep to a DVD was set on Pride & Prejudice. I could totally fall asleep to that menu music. Not during the movie though. It's my favorite.

rachelthat said...

Please post a travel guide for Atlanta!

Victoria said...

Love that video clip of the Queen & Queen Mum! Happy weekending!

Nina Leung said...

OMG! I've been waiting for a site like Vine.com. Thank you for posting it. I already ordered stuff. I had no idea Earth's Best made Pull Ups. I'm psyched! The prices are great and it's so easy to find exactly what I need. Thank you so much for getting the word out!

Freya Lily said...

Have a good time!!!! Those are some great links, btw. Fargo, a TV series!? I'm excited :)

Kathryn said...

Thanks for the link love Joanna! xoxo

Aya said...

Lordy--that McQueen dress Hanneli is wearing was something I was imagining (and unrealistically dreaming of) as a wedding dress. It's amazing to see someone wearing it out and about. She looks dreamy.

Aya said...

It's a McQueen...and thus will have to live in my fantasy life.

fortheloveofbookshops.com said...

We love Atlanta - hope you will, too! You'll be just in time for the Little 5 Fest, celebrating one of the city's quirkiest and most fun neighborhoods... also home to some great local bookstores. But I'm sure Alex's sister will be showing you a grand time. Enjoy!

Vanesa said...

I read the antelope canyon link as cantaloupe canyon. Ha!

Have a great weekend, Joanna! :)

Truett0620 said...

The youfellasleeptoadvd.com just made me so happy! I fall asleep to my Pride and Prejudice dvd all the time! It's my favorite movie and I have to hear that music all the time in my sleep which drives me bonkers but P&P is worth it :)

Good luck on your trip!!

I plan to woo my husband with that yummy lasagna recipe!!!

Elizabeth Johnson said...

I am from and live in Atlanta. Before you leave, if you have time to have some breakfast grub then you should definitely stop in Ria's Bluebird Cafe. I think it is the best breakfast in Atlanta and Im sure many would agree. Enjoy your weekend!

Joan said...

THE Joanna Goddard will be in my city this weekend?! DIES.

RoOHOohoO said...

Wow very interesting that you re-posted the "marshmallow willpower". I'm reading a book called Emotional Intelligence by Danile Goleman and he talks about that test in there! It's a measure of how much you can delay gratification, part of emotional intelligence. That test correlates heavily with how well children will do later in life!!! They followed those kids!

I love the links! So fun. Have a beautiful weekend!

Can I just say how snazzy your new blog looks? So cute!
I am obsessed with the Retronaut website that you posted (bill and hilary's wedding photo). I love looking at vintage photographs, so that website was fun to raid through for hours.

Joanna, I always read but rarely comment. I hope this is going to change! I love the new design and I believe I was one of the rare ones who believed that this might be your choice even though all the options looked great!
It´s just a very organic fit to your style, I guess!

Love your links as always!

Have a great weekend!

I admit I took advantage of JCrew's 25% off and ordered a new coat :) http://www.jcrew.com/womens_category/outerwear/wool/PRDOVR~49622/49622.jsp The double-cloth lady day coat in camel. I can't wait for it to be cold enough to wear it (oh, and for the baby to born so I can actually button it).

I had no particular plans except prepping for my trip to NY to do the final walk through on a current project that is wrapping up. I will definitely try to catch that comedy special!

Thanks for the suggestion!

Hi Jo, thanks for the reading list! (I'm a new reader- I think I found your blog via followers of a friends blog) I enjoyed that post you linked to about choosing colour for your home, that was helpful.

Nicole said...

Hope you had fun in Atlanta! That's where we live :) Yay!

sweetsy said...

You might not have to daydream about the shoes if you're willing to consider J Crew's similar style--it's very pretty and a fraction of the cost:)
