Have a relaxing weekend.

What are you up to this weekend? We caught a mouse this week! He just scurried by while I was minding my own business on the sofa. This weekend, we'll be staying cozy indoors during the snowstorm. (If you like cocktails, Dark & Stormys might be appropriate.) I'm also reading this book, which is great. Have a safe weekend, and here are a few fun links, if you're in a blog-reading mood...

Bill Cunningham T-shirt.

Arugula pizza.

Puppy pinwheel.

Perfect spring sandals.

Giant Valentine posters!

Daily dishonesty (about the funny lies we tell ourselves).

10 ways to dress up your ponytail.

Why can some kids handle pressure while others fall apart?

Rosy cheeks are on my wishlist.

Google "askew" or "do a barrel roll." Well played, Google.

Swedish real-estate listings look straight out of Elle Decor.

A chocolate caramel taste test.

Superhero window washers!

Flowers and jewelry, delivered together.

Plus, 3 posts you might have missed:
* Secret message bananas.
* Leaning Tower of Pisa.
* Cookie swap.

Enjoy the weekend nevertheless! xoxo

I love "Maddie on Things". She's such a little babe and her person's photographs are beautiful.

Denise said...

Oh, you are in for a treat with Calvin Trillon. Try his Tummy Trilogy and Travels with Alice, I'm laughing thinking about the stories!

we have a little mouse in our apt too, he scurried out right in front of me yesterday! if you don't mind me asking, how did you catch it? ours is still roaming somewhere, he was a fast little guy and now i'm scared he's going to pop out and nip my toe at any moment.

LOVE Children's in Pittsburgh. The window washers--so great!

Emily C said...

Oh fun, I'm reading "Let's Eat, Alice" right now, he's a pretty entertaining guy. I'm pretty sure he'd be the best person to take out to dinner - or rather, it'd be great to let him take me out to dinner!

Good luck during the storm! I just saw it on the weather. I currently live in the San Francisco area now, but having lived on the East Coast for most of my life I know how unpredictable yet exciting those winter storms are. Happy Weekend!

"Do a barrel roll" was awesome :) I'm sure there are lots of hidden phrases that would make us smile after googling them.

You ALWAYS post the best links. Best wishes in the snowy weather.

Isabelle Tabary said...

You should try typing "anagram" into google, and for Hitchicker's guide to the Galaxy geeks, there's also typing "the meaning of life the universe and everything" in! (google is brilliant! :-) )

Love this post! The picture reminds me of myself today AND we caught a mouse this past week, too! Little jerk ate all of my hershey kisses - argh!

I will go shopping for sandals similar to those you showed here .. I like them and saw some today with zippers going up the heel.
It is boiling hot here, summer time in Buenos Aires, I have been trying to get out before it gets too hot and do some photography .. then home to the a/c and US TV shows :)
Have a good (warm) weekend !

A Dark and Stormy is a great idea to weather the storm, Moscow Mules are also delicious.
