Have a fun weekend.

What are your plans this weekend? We're going to the Dumbo carousel with Toby and, once he's in bed, heading to this yummy restaurant with some friends. (Fried chicken and cheddar waffles for dinner? Count me in!) Also, Louis C.K.'s HBO special premieres this Saturday at 10pm, if you're interested. That dude is hilarious. Have a wonderful weekend, and here are a few fun posts from around the web...

Glow-in-the-dark tattoo.

Art appreciation.

Broccoli as comfort food.

What a pretty floral dress.

Love these.

Bicycle cocktails!

A dramatic new hotel.

Great idea: Freezing cookie dough and just baking a couple each night.

The touching reason behind daffodils in NYC.

What does 2000 calories look like? (Chipotle burritos are not kidding around.)

This book sounds really sweet.

A guide to a natural home.

And if you're in New York and would like some fresh flowers, Amy Merrick has a pop-up shop this weekend. Have a good one. xo

Oh, now I miss New York. It really is the greatest city in the world and I realize it more when we're apart.

I think what the 2000 calories video really says is we can eat more bacon :)

I think you've commented on the There's Going to Be a Baby book before. It does look cute so I got it from the library after I found out that I was having another. Honestly, it's just weird. Pretty to look at but the text is weird and there's no dad whatsoever which my husband found odd.

i was just looking at that natural home guide from vine - great reference! i'm jealous of your fried chicken & cheddar waffles, that sounds perfectly indulgent! what are weekends for, right?

Melissa said...

Huh, I had always heard that the daffodils were started by WWII wives and carried on to honor our veterans and those currently serving. I could be making this up. :)

Alexandra said...

Cheddar Waffles - yumm!

Aileen said...

Wow...about the 2,000 calories...WOW. I don't think I ever want to eat Chiptotle again unless it's my one meal of the day!!!!! That's crazy!!

I can wait for Toby's pictures of the carousel!

Happy weekend : )

The freezing cookie dough is a good idea! Er, or so I thought. I did this for a few weeks, and I actually saw an increase in my electric bill that I could only attribute to using the oven more frequently than usual (I usually cook on the stove top and don't use the oven much). Crazy, huh?! So now I've switched over to chocolate covered raisins for dessert :)

Kate Uhry said...

when did chicken and waffles become all the rage? And did you see Lays now make s chicken a waffle potato chips;)

MC said...

That's what I took away too! :)

Julia Fain said...

beautiful dress! I am taking our 5 year old to the dentist (not so fun, ha!) and packing up for a trip south. Ready to enjoy spring!

PPNYer said...

That might be true, but, just as this post states, after 9/11 the daff was adopted by the city as a way to remember that day. I love seeing them in all the parks and along the Westside Highway at this time of year and thinking about peace instead of remembering. It's much nicer. And planting them is a contemplative way to remember, to meditate, to meet new New Yorkers. It's a good thing I think.

I"ve been to Fogo Island (Where the hotel is located). It's in Newfoundland Canada. Its beautiful and unspoiled. I actually grew up in a town not or far away.

thekittchen.com said...

I don't feel guilty for indulging in the occasional Chipotle burrito... but I will admit that there are far too many nights when I probably consume 800 calories of beer! (Can't they just remove the calories?)

Mani said...

I always love the links you post at the end of the week! Hope you have a great weekend :)

Before clicking I knew it would be the Fogo Island Inn. I am from Newfoundland, which in itself a place so full of beauty and wonder, but Fogo is special! And the story of Zita Cobb and her revitalization of the island is really awesome and inspiring and makes me want to be a philanthropist when I grow up!

Hope you enjoy the carousel @Dumbo, love it there. If you and the hubby head back to that hood sans the little man, I just took my hubby for his birthday to the Floating Kabarette {http://www.galapagosartspace.com/floating-kabarette/} at the Galapagos art space, it was really entertaining and try dinner {with a reservation} at Rebar if you haven't been, Yummy!. That neighborhood makes for great date nites!

Hey, have you seen this? It seems valid and reliable, but even if it's not, it may be a fun game to play with your husband or family to determine Baby Goddard's gender. :) Toby's so cute, I bet a little brother would be equally as adorable, but one has to wonder what a baby Girl Goddard looks like. Anyway, check out the article. NOT spam, lol, I Promise! Just too much trouble for me to quote and then ethically cite, lol. (Yes, I am lazy tonight.)

Oooh, love the idea of a pop up flower shop. Not in NYC, but it was a lovely thought anyway. :) Sounds like you lined up a nice weekend. We took it easy. I had a little photo shoot of my new haircut, you know...important stuff like that. ;)

...and now on to a new week!
