Have a great weekend.

What are you doing this weekend? We just finished the home makeover with Emily and it was a thrill. I'm excited to share photos when they're ready in a couple weeks. Thank you so much for your sweet notes. And this weekend is daylight savings, yikes! Good luck to all of us! (Why does it exist?!!) Have a wonderful weekend, and here are a few fun links from around the web...

Apple slab pie.

Thoughts on winter. Made me laugh.

This map of births and deaths is really moving.

The Headphones Project asks random people what music they're listening to.

Four cute braids for curly hair.

The best time of day to drink coffee.

Who wants to go on this road trip?

This design book looks awesome (thanks, Jenny).

Diana's beautiful wedding in Africa.

Tiny black diamond earrings.

Mystery lollipop flavor! I was actually psyched to find this out.

Get Biked is a new email list with bikes for sale in NYC. Thumbs up.

Not to be rude, but I would read the article on Mia Farrow in this month's Vanity Fair before you post anymore pictures of Woody Allen -- I'll never look at him the same way again.

Sarah Spitz said...

We're really looking forward to seeing your new home!

Have a lovely weekend as well and a happy All Saints':

This weekend is the _end_ of daylight savings. Now, we plunge into 4pm darkness

Christine said...

best time to enjoy coffee: during baby's morning nap! According to that article, it is the perfect timing between 9:30-11:30!

as for daylight savings, we are flying from CA to NY on a red eye sunday night with our almost 9 month old. I'm a little afraid.

Bree Klipfel said...

just read the article. wow. I agree...never the same way again.

We're expanding our little family by adopting a dog this weekend! We are so excited! Have a great weekend!

You know, I used to hate the time change too, especially with babies, and the dark evenings can be tough. But now that my kids are getting a little older, I'm starting to appreciate it more. It doesn't mess with their sleep cycles that much any more, and It's going to make getting them up in the morning for school just a little easier next week!

I always look forward to the variety of links you share. I hope you have a great weekend!

As a resident (born and bred) of Toronto, I can attest to the accuracy of that winter chart!

Love these posts! Great weekend reading :)

Happy Friday!

It's funny because that immediately came to mind. Every time I see Woody Allen I think: pedophile.

jessykah said...

i just had the SAME exact thought. yeesh, he's so creepy.

sumslay said...

I've always thought he was creepy (I mean, he did marry his daughter) and wondered why Jo likes him so much. I did read that interview though, and it took my thoughts of him to a whole new low.

sumslay said...

Oh, and I was also going to point out that it's Daylight Saving, not Savings. ;)

Hillary Warlick said...

I'm so exciting to see all of your fun apartment updates. Emily was so much fun to watch on HGTV Star!

Emily Knott said...

I actually I have this weekend off! Yay!

Please consider saying which country (South Africa) in Africa rather than "Africa."

deloom.com said...

The apple slab pie looks delicious! Thanks for sharing!

...Have a wonderful weekend! xoxo

Rachel said...

Really, Africa? You can't be any more specific than that? Time to read up on your post colonialism Joanna.

Fisher Sisters said...

Your blog always makes me smile! And I look forward to the weekend links because you always seem to find interesting things around the web that I wouldn't have seen otherwise. I am sure that life must be crazy with a toddler (they have so much energy! Delightful... and exhausting.) and a new born, and recently moving and redecorating. So thanks for continuing to post anyway! Checking A Cup of Jo is now a part of my daily routine.

And I love the time change... this time of year is perfect for broken in flannel shirts, fuzzy sockets, fury throw blankets, lots of candles, and really good books. (or blogs!)

Happy fall and happy November!

Just signed up for Get Biked. Great find. TGIF.

Elisabeth said...

I second that! I love your blog, Joanna, but I was disappointed to see "Africa" as the location for the wedding.

melle-belle said...

I could do without seeing his creepy mug for awhile.

series_of_moments said...

Sumslay, I wondered about that too. I've been a reader of this blog for quite awhile now but seeing photos of the guy posted here is off-putting.

Why do you like him so, Joanna?

bananastand said...

Actually, it's the end of daylight savings and now we switch to Eastern Standard Time! Can't wait to see your new apartment pics!!

Michelle Panting said...

Pausing over the photos from the South African wedding. Her dress was so amazing and romantic and I love that her bridesmaids wore white too. The Toronto winter shout out is also pretty cool. Winnipeg's like that, but more extreme.

Oh my goooooodnessssss!! I am speechless that people actually take the time to gripe, critique, correct or oppose... life is too short peoples!! Life. Is. Too. Short!!!

Fact - South Africa IS IN AFRICA ... sheesh (& i was born there so yeah)
Fact - our opinions are such reflections of ourselves
Fact - I've just taken the time to be critical and YES i recognise the irony

So... let me rather finish with this:

Thanks for yet another fun, awesome, informative and POSITIVE post Jo...
You. Rock. ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥

risewiththebirds.com said...

Awesome links. The realtime births & deaths was insane. And the Headphones Project is genius!

mc said...

Especially since Dylan , who was 7 at the time she spoke out about the abuse, says in the article she is scared of him, of his image.Can you image going to a lifestyle blog and seeing a photo of your abuser ?

Andrea Crowther said...

Thanks for the link to curly hair braids.
Both of my daughters have heavy curly hair (me too)
Thanks,
Andrea

Nadine said...

I'm super curious for the (home) make-over! Love to see more of your appartment.
Have a nice weekend!

TJ Mac said...

love reading your blog......although im curious why you use so many woody allen photos considering he has been accused of child abuse, and has been proven that he took underage nude photos of soon-yi. Would totally respect your thoughts and opinion on it. :)

Charisma said...

I am so over daylight savings time! Love that article on braids for us curly girls.

LRB said...

The Headphone project is awesome.

Suse said...

Sorry. I am troubled by repeated images of Woody Allen on your site after having read the piece in Vanity Fair by Maureen Orth about Mia Farrow...Sorry: is know he's quintessential NY but still...

Suse said...

Apologies, too for not having read the earlier comments. Apparently others agree.

celesteandpearl.blogspot.com said...

Such an interesting article on coffee!! While I can't imagine not having it when I first wake up, you are making me reconsider...

Thanks for the Asos code too!

Have a great weekend!

Warmest,
Liz

Karli said...

Can't wait to see your room reveal! I just bought a gorgeous top from ASOS but sadly the code doesn't apply to Australian shoppers. Sad!

Haiden swellware said...

Cool blog

Mina said...

Oooo! Can't wait to see the final outcome. Emily really does beautiful work!

Champagne Sunday said...

Oh wow, YES to the ASOS discount code!!!

Cheers!

The Asos code is expired now:(

Jenny B said...

I guess Sunday evening means before 6:40pm??? Bummer.

women-fight said...

It's funny because that immediately came to mind. Every time I see Woody Allen I think: pedophile.

Unknown said...

I am bummed too! I was saving Sunday night to do a little shopping and now the code is over. :(

Virginia said...

Wanted to let you know we are all waiting with bated breath for your gift guides this year! I'm starting to get nervous, and you always give such great ideas! Thank you for all of the tips you have given in the past. Can't wait for this year!

Aisha said...

Agreed. Africa is a really really big place and saying Africa can be very reductive of a large, varied and amazing continent full of different countries. Really love the blog though (I live in Kenya).

Rosamapose said...

I love the sound of The Headphones Project-I frequently look at other people on the street or the subway and wonder what they're listening to!

Blonde in this City

Kim said...

Africa is a continent. South Africa is a country. Cape Town is a city. We're a very different bunch, all us African countries and cities.

Laura D said...

I knew that about mystery lollipops, but isn't it weird? And maybe I'll try timing my coffee drinking

The "thoughts on winter" comic was EXACTLY what I was looking for last week when my sister asked me when winter ends in Toronto. Sad but so true.
