Have a wonderful long weekend.

What are your plans for the weekend? I've had a cough, sore throat and foggy head all week. (This was Anton's reaction:) So it will be great to get outside and do something fun. Hope you have a wonderful, relaxing weekend, and here are a few fun posts from around the web...

A sweet friend gave us one of these succulent terrariums as a gift, and it looks great in a living room (if you need a good gift idea).

Thanks, Lucinda Smith! I'm having fun tracking down all the reblogs of the original post from Feature Shoot. (Thank JoAnna for reposting). It's been a wild two weeks for sure! Working with a literary agent now on the book. None of this was possible before Feature Shoot dug up an old blog post from 3 years ago when I was actively working on this project.

Oh my!! I'm completely awkward! I guessed 30 seconds on the quiz! My momma always jokes I'm asocial cause I have a few close friends (but they have been my friends since... ever?) and I have no interest in doing whatever people do at 22 (which, I guess, is partying hard, getting drunk and smoking a lot... which I did from 15 to 20 years old like every teenager in Spain, and got really bored of). But 30 seconds!! I must be asocial. (The truth is I'm very talkative... if I have something to say. If not, I've no problem with silence.) Have a wonderful weekend! :)

I felt that way earlier this week. It is most likely allergies. I haven't gotten this bad in years. I can see the pollen in the looks like little cotton balls floating around. Crazy.

Feel better, Joanna! :)

I've been feeling a bit under the weather too, I hope you feel better soon :)
And that slide looks like so much fun, it's awesome when fun is introduced into normal things.

Love the braid in that picture, so beachy and pretty!

I've been following your site for years and I always love the links you give to different fun stuff- great taste as always :) xo

Our "secret" family chest cold cure is to take 1/2 shot of strong liquor (my brother likes crown royal, my Mom prefers cointreau, and I go with firefly vodka), drink a cup of tea (as hot as you can handle), then drink another 1/2 of a shot of strong liquor, repeat 1-2 time a day until you feel better. Works like a charm!

Loved the reccomendations on the Parisian would be my dream come true to stay in any one of them!

Chloe said...

Meadow said...

At work now... wish it was a long weekend here in Canada!

Elisa @ Globetrotting in Heels said...

I love the video of the mama bear and cubs! So awesome!

I made my own terrarium with a vase and small succulents I bought from IKEA. It's so cute! And it is the only green thing I have managed to keep a live fro more than few weeks :-)

Memorial Day weekend was great. Grilled with my ex and his family and our kids, and didn't let certain things get under my skin. Just kept reminding myself, "not my problem anymore."

Rachel said...

You should check out RadioLab's podcast episode "quicksaaand." Really fascinating!!!

jm said...

roger ebert documentary looks amazing. And sad.

Rose said...

the Paris hotels look wonderful-love the quirky 60s one and the place near Johnny Depp- not only for Johnny sightings, though obviously those are good

i have to keep you updated because I'm simply AMAZED at the results of the spell you performed for me in getting my partner back to me in good health. Everything is going so well and EXACTLY how you said it would be. Even though it took a little time to fully progress, it was so worth it because things are just about at perfection! How you took my situation and completely turned it around to give me exactly what I wanted is beyond me, but something I will never question and just be completely grateful for me coming across you. God Bless you for helping so many people get what their heart desires. You truly gifted! you can also contact him for help as well (
