Have a wonderful weekend.

What are you up to this weekend? We are having friends over tonight and going on a bike ride tomorrow. (I can't wait until Anton is old enough for a bike seat!! I'd love to have him on the front and Toby on the back, like this mama.) Also, Mad Men starts Sunday, whoot whoot. Hope you have a good one, and here are a few fun links from around the web...

A song to kick off the weekend.

LOVE these zigzag earrings.

Oh my goodness, I want to eat this grilled cheese.

How to handle criticism.

What it would look like if Venice froze.

The nerdiest app.

Rejection letters sent to famous people.

This book looks great. (Congrats, Molly!)

Would you try this eyeshadow? I actually kind of love it.

Now you're supposed to eat seven fruits and veggies a day.

The perfect response for absolutely everything.

Prince George is too flipping cute!

Is this reality show for real?

Old paintings get a new twist.

This A-to-Z of Dance video is jawdropping. Worth watching.

And I have to say, one more time, how much I love your comments, always. These were especially lovely.
And, by request, here is a photo of Caroline's dog! Her name is Mia, she is a five-and-a-half-pound morkie, and she loves being part of a good tablescape. :) Have a good one!

Dang! I wish I'd seen that cucumber goat grilled cheese recipe last week. A bunch of friends and I had a grilled cheese cook-off where everyone brought their own recipe and we tasted each others' and voted and awarded a grilled cheese trophy to the best sandwich.

I did not win.

That dance video was amazing! Makes me want to dance on my way to Grand Central tonight after work. :)

Meredith said...

Whoa, that dance video!

We just had a new grilled cheese restaurant open in DC today that I'm dying to try--they have one called the grilled carbonara with Gruyère, goat cheese, sautéed leeks and pancetta. According to their website, this Sunday is National Grilled Cheese day, so I think we all need to give your recipe a try! :)

So what do you do with Anton right now when you ride? We're researching options and trying to decide when and how to ride with our baby girl.

Where did the beautiful foo dogs in the last picture come from? I've been on the hunt for a while and those are the cutest I've ever seen!

Aw, I can't wait for the weather to be warmer. Bike rides are the best. Have a great weekend, Joanna!

Oh my god, you won't believe me but it's my friend who is the Harry look a like! I went to Uni with him at Southampton in the UK and we used to tease him no end about it. Then after uni he got a job as a look-a-like and never looked back since! he always jokes that it just spirals out of control and pays too well to try and stop it :D

Breathless - what a great movie that was.

I love this so much. I want to have a sense of humor because critisim is done purposely and I think I do take it personally and then try to learn from it. Also have yo seen the mad men inspired cocktails on cookingchanneltv.com lovely!!! Last, my kitten would love Ms. Caroline puppy shes priceless

Christine said...

Tomorrow is national grilled cheese day! Do it!

We are trying to get our 14 month to like wearing a helmet for bike riding. We have a trailer in the garage waiting tobe taken out.

Enjoying a lovely weekend on the Cape. Still in the 50s, but sunny and the wine is flowing. I can't complain!

Mariah RTFASAHMblog said...

I can't wait for Mad Men!! So sad this is the last season. :(

Maria said...

I just have to say, I love how you guys always have something fun and interesting planned for the weekend! It makes me want to go out and DO stuff too.

Hope you're having a great time!

Ah, Breathless... stills from that film always make my heart skip a beat.

I love your Friday links! Always such good stuff. This week I especially loved the "handling criticism" link. I feel like I've gotten to a point professionally where I can ask for constructive feedback, and take it without flinching...but this is always followed by crying in my car shortly after. Taking it "seriously rather than personally and with a sense of humor" is great advice to strive towards.

Thanks!!

Thanks so much for posting the A-Z video! I represent that photographer/videographer (Jacob Sutton) here in the states and am so lucky to get to work with such amazing artists. It really makes my day when others appreciate it too. :)
