Have a delicious weekend.

What are you up to this weekend? Alex and I are going to dinner tonight, and my fingers are crossed that it will be warm enough to sit in a back garden. Also, Mad Men premieres this Sunday, whoot whoot! Two friends are coming over for tacos and cocktails. (I'll have this fizzy juice.) Hope you have a great weekend, and here are a few fun posts from around the web...

Roger Ebert's twenty best movie reviews.

Slicing a poached egg is one of life's great pleasures.

This giraffe made me laugh.

Appetizer idea: Baked ricotta.

What a pretty bow dress.

100 rules of cooking dinner.

Before-and-after hang-out space.

A map wall.

How to have the best pregnancy ever, ha.

The world's most colorful cities.

What a happy City Hall elopement.

Reminder: Vine.com is offering a 20% discount with the code JOANNA20, good until April 30th.

Finally, thank you for the hundreds of AMAZING emails about parents living abroad! We are going through them right now and everyone sounds incredible.

Thank you for that pregnancy post. I'm terrified of childbirth and this made me LOL several times :) The City Hall wedding was amazing. I'm getting married there next year and feel like I have to step up my styling because of these gorgeous brides.

PS- Do you agree that the 70's will ruin the fashion on Mad Men? Last season was a little groovy...

shawn said...

When I say "agree", I mean that because I've read it all over the interweb, not because I share those feelings.

What an insightful response Roger Ebert gave in relation to the movie Elephant. Smart guy. If only the media would take heed.

And that hang-out space... how very cool and resourceful.

Enjoy a fun weekend!

I just finished up eating a chocolate chip cookie...must be something about Fridays! I'm dying to try the baked ricotta recipe the next time I have people over. It sounds delish!

Hope you have a great weekend too!

That Jezebel post about how to have the best pregnancy ever made me laugh SO. DAMN. HARD. I'm eight months now and when I look back at how psychotic all that stuff made me in my first four or five months, I wonder how I even made it this far. At this point I'm kind of blase about it, I mean, this kid's coming out how he's coming out ...

Joanna, even better than Izzes is this Dry Soda: http://www.amazon.com/DRY-Soda-Co-Multi-12-Pack/dp/B001L73DPK/ref=sr_1_1?s=grocery&ie=UTF8&qid=1365200973&sr=1-1&keywords=dry+soda I had it at a fancy pants restuarant in Seattle once and it is UH-mazing! And perfect for preggie mommies:)
xo, Amy

Great vacation might be your dream. Travel to Bali is not always expensive as there are many international flights providing special rates for early bird booking. There are also many selection of Bali hotels offering special discount rates including Bali villas and budget Bali accommodation.

Oh, another Mad Men lover. So what did you think? I am hearing some are let down?? As for me...I will love it no matter what they do♥ Can you believe, we won't have friends over during the show...because they talk to much and I can't hear the lines. LOL!
