Have a lovely weekend.

What are you up to this weekend? Any fun plans? We're having dinner with friends tonight at the hidden restaurant Hudson Clearwater, and then spending the weekend doing anything but watching TV. Who knows what will unfold!! :) Hope you have a good one, and here are a few fun links from around the web...

A song for your weekend.

What fashion week REALLY looks like.

Typeface for doctors.

This tumblr made me laugh out loud. (via Liz)

Chicken-parm meatballs.

Simple eyeshadow from Paris.

Wouldn't you love to walk through this rain room?

Wise words.

A town with no roads.

Halloween costume inspired by the Red Balloon.

Baby walrus! Mustachioed!

A bag for Anglophiles.

Flea market art.

For New York readers: This motherhood panel looks amazing.
For LA readers: Cup of Jo reader Alison had a tumor removed (and is fine now!) but has crazy debt due to briefly not having insurance. She happens to be amazing at braiding hair, so she's hosting a braid bar on October 20th to raise money. It'll be a fun night for ladies to get their hair braided at a cool store in LA and have drinks together!
Have a good one, everyone! xo

Well, last week I had hoped to go Autumn picture taking- It didn't happen.
So...that's the "plan" for this weekend.

It's been a crazy week- I just want to relax.

Enjoy dinner!

I have been laughing at this tumbler all week - you will especially love it if you watch the voice http://carson-cares.tumblr.com/

My friends and I hunted down Hudson Clearwater when we visited New York a year ago because I saw it on one of your New York posts. LOVED IT! Sorry I took so long to tell you and say thanks!

ale norris said...

If I am at LA, I'll be sure to head to Alison's bar to get my hair braided. Amazing woman she must be!

Deanna (Silly Goose Farm) said...

DANG! I read that "Wise Words" link to quickly and though it was attributed to Tom Petty... and then I was like, "Heck Yes Tom Petty!"

Good luck Alison!!

Deanna (Silly Goose Farm) said...

Apparently I can't spell: TOO and THOUGHT.

Dee Dee said...

Alison is a super-great friend of mine, and is an amazing braider and stylist! If you're in LA you should definitely pop in and have her work her magic on your lovely locks!

J+H @ Beyond The Stoop said...

we're heading to florida!! my nephew turns two, and he's the only child of his generation in my immediate family, so it means EVERYONE comes for the birthday! it's sort of like a mini family reunion (since all of my immediate family is scattered across the US)

and it's going to be so fun....

cheers!

Julia said...

Have a lovely weekend Joanna! Sounds like you have a happiness filled weekend planned.

Stephanie Sabbe said...

That is so nice of you to post the LA readers event. You are hands down the nicest famous blogger out there:)

Junaluska said...

Noo, I'm so sad I don't live in LA anymore! I hope a lot of people can go though. And, wow, that roadless town is stunning.

Kelly said...

When I saw the link to the rain room in London, I immediately thought of another rain room (actually an entire rain house!) that I saw a few weeks ago while visiting friends in Sydney. (This exhibit has since moved to Denmark). I thought you might like to see, if you haven't already, so here is a link to an article on it:

http://www.creativereview.co.uk/cr-blog/2011/june/the-glue-society-raining-house-sculpture-by-the-sea-denmark

It was striking to walk by on a sunny day (not a cloud in site) and to see a group of people in bright yellow rain coats and soaking wet.

Have a lovely weekend as well, Joanna!

Liz Lauren said...

so beautiful!

I'm writing a book review and planning to nestle all weekend in the woods- sans television. Happy weekend to you too! Love the new specs!

Y said...

that rain room would boggle my mind!!! what a trip!!

xoxox

Kristina King said...

I'm living in Edinburgh right now and I am totally taking a trip south to London for the rain room. That looks too cool to miss! Thanks for mentioning it: now I have a weekend trip to plan!

Rachael {all things beautiful} said...

Loved the rain room idea.. how cool would that be? And thanks for the wise words quote.. definitely needed to hear that today. Have a good weekend.

kellyweed said...

Love L. Tom Perry! He reminds me 100% of my grandpa.

Julia said...

the braid bar is such a neat fundraiser idea. I hope it is a success! Also, love the flea market art. Really you could say anything with the words "flea market" and I'd love it.

Caroline said...

That Tumblr is hilarious!

Going to see "Seminar in LA -- the play about writing workshops!

I'm going with a friend and fellow writer who was in a lot of workshops with me in college! :)

Courtney said...

I took your advice about Hudson Clearwater (on your NYC posts - where to eat!) and my boyfriend and I LOVED it! I have never felt more like a new york city local eating at a place with a secret door. The food was out of this world, the cocktails were fabulous and the atmosphere was just perfect :) I can't wait to go back again when I visit NYC! have a great dinner! xoxo

Do you reckon I could pull of the british accent bag bearing in mind I'm a Brit in California?

Alexis said...

Love your shoutout to the NY and LA posts :)

Amanda said...

Love love love Kris Atomic. I've been following her blog for years (since the livejournal days! Maybe offhotfashion? I can't even remember any more) and her photography and illustrations are so lovely.

Very Highbrow said...

Thanks for sharing Kris Atomic! What a great photographer (and talented captionist!)

brittney said...

That L. Tom Perry quote is excellent - what a great find - thanks for passing it along.

jean goddard said...

Typeface for doctors - hilarious!

Wendy Wainwright said...

They used to send us all into the auditorium when it would rain, in Burbank, CA, in elementary school and show us The Red Balloon. This weekend...Husband and I baked bread tonight and went to a friend's for dinner. Tomorrow I would really like to get the nursery curtains ironed and hung up...also now that I am 37 weeks plus a couple of days I should maybe consider packing a hospital bag.

kaylee.michelle said...

I just love your blog. Thought I'd let you know!

Lexi said...

I came home and did not watch tv. I found myself dusting off my guitar and playing a bit and now I'm enjoying a stout on the porch while reading a magazine. I should do this more often! Enjoy your weekend.

Paula said...

Wow! Alison's idea is fantastic!! I'd love to come if I lived in LA.. Have a great one :)

H said...

I cancelled my cable service about four months ago (because I was sick of paying the bill!) and I've never been so much more relaxed, yes I sometimes miss my shows but I can always catch them later on Netflix! I spend my nights and weekends reading or exercising and listening to music, I've even had a better relationship with my mom now that I have more spare time in the evenings to call her and catch up on random little things(: It's been much easier for me not having tv but! everyone's different.

XOXO H

ALI&ANG said...

The Fashion week post was spot on. This weekend I have friends in town from Seattle. We will probably head to Brooklyn for dinner and drinks. Maybe ride the Merry G Round in Dumbo!

Been a crazy and hectic week for me too. So I want to use this weekend as an opportunity to relax and maybe do some catching up with my loved ones.

just a comment:
I think it is great what Alison does to get money for her surgery!

How can or could anyone living in the US be agains health care for EVERYBODY ANYTIME??? That still makes people in Europe speachless! I am sorry that this can happen!

Nanna Emma said...

Only just found your blog this morning but I am already loving it!
Such a cute, fun-loving, warm blog you've got.
I'm Nanna Emma, an excited new reader of yours :)

I live in London and I went to the Rainroom with my boyfriend yesterday. Its amazing! Though we did wait an hour and a half to only be in the actual installation for 10 minutes it was worth the experience. I would advise bringing books if you're going to visit when its just come to town.

Gulliver said...

I live in London and went to the Rain Room exhibit on Monday - it really is stunning. If you walk too quickly you do get wet though!

It's super popular at the moment so the queue is pretty long (we waited an hour and a half). It's on until March though so it will get less busy in time!

grapefruitmoon said...

As an european I completely agree with you. In Austria no one has to pay for surgeries like this! Unbelievable!

Ann Cundy said...

That tumblr is SO funny : )

domonique matthews said...

LOVE the tumblr!! LOL hilarious!

wow! that pic of Bath is from Camden Crescent (one of our many crescents) in my home town! Where I am right this instant! How coincidental, love your blog Joanna, all the way from the UK!

DeeJ said...

Hey it will be great to hear how you feel after not watching tv after a week. We "quit" over a year ago, and havent looked back. I just had this idea as a happy challenge.. I was reading the colors we wear and how dull colors (like grey and black) can "clash with your aura" and bring moods down. How about a week of not wearing black?! I think that would be a hard but good challenge. What do you think? :) Love your blog btw

isabel said...

this weekend is all about relaxing and enjoying our little family together!

My weekend is low key, although this images makes me want to get out and travel!

Love, Jamie Herzlinger

Ashley said...

Have a great weekend! I'd like to challenge myself to no email (or eek--no iPhone!) some weekend. Thanks for the inclusion, Joanna. Always so flattered to know that you're following along. :)

Made my weekend!

simplethingstolove said...

OOh lovely links, I really like those boots, adding them to the list. Thank you

Julia from Dozen Flours said...

I loved the quote by L. Tom Perry. I was having a "Let's Julia Day" which I think I do a little too often. That quote reminded me that it's not okay to treat myself so poorly. I loved it so much I printed out a few copies and surreptitiously hung them around the workplace so the others folks that I work with can be reminded that they are worth being nice to themselves too.

Jessica Lee said...

I loved this post. I literally sit here and click every link and get lost in these cool sites/blogs and end up shopping for hours o.O

Lovely post Jo!
