Have a wonderful weekend.

What are your plans this weekend? I'm flying to San Francisco today to meet my sister and mom for the weekend. I'll be away from the boys for three nights and four days—I've already given them 1,000,000 kisses—but I'm looking forward to a girly weekend and a plane flight all by myself. Hope you have a wonderful Mother's Day weekend, and here are a few fun links from around the web...

The loveliest interviews of celebrities.

...And another funny photo.

Omg. This airline gives you an apartment on the plane.

Two-ingredient sandwiches.

These shoes would look cute with jean shorts.

Could you and your partner pass a U.S. immigration marriage interview?

Made me laugh.

This Frozen video is actually kind of awesome. (Toby loves it, too.)

What a pretty dress.

How to stop a wedding. Bizarre!

Wow, I want to go find this guy.

Wouldn't you love to cut into these cakes?

Dumb and Dumber recut as a psychological thriller. (And remember this?)

The bubble-maker is a lady! I've only ever seen her in Washington Square park, but she may head elsewhere too :)

What a gorgeous picture! Love the links too, I have a feeling I couldn't pass the immigration test. ;)

Darn, wish I would've known about that cake book for Mother's Day. Enjoy your break Joanna - it is so nice to have family that will meet across states and support you!

Melanie Price said...

I will only be 2 house away!! Cheers to a lovely weekend with your family. And enjoy the time alone...it is bittersweet but so needed for mommies.

Our favorite restaurant to eat in the city is The Balboa Cafe in the Marina District. We LOVE that are of SF! Wonderful restaurats, shopping and a great community vibe.

The Alembic is a cool little whiskey bar located in the Haight Ashbury part of town. Lots of hippies but overall cool vibe.

HAVE FUN!!!

It's going to be so warm here in SF this weekend! Good timing =)

Sarah said...

that essay should come with a serious warning. it is just so devastating to read his grief through the whole of her treatments. much too sad for a friday...

My husband and I have actually been through one of those interviews, and they only asked a handful of those questions! The most basic ones, really. The process is so subjective; it must vary so much from couple to couple, interviewer to interviewer.

erin said...

Just needed to pop in to comment on the enthusiasm contained in "a plane flight all by myself." I flew to Paris last summer for work and I think the part I most looked forward to were those 7 hours in the air. Endless time to read, watch silly movies and doze feels like true luxury!

The essay - seriously beautiful but so heartbreaking. I lost my mom about 15 years ago to cancer (ovarian) so reading this has brought back memories as she died at home too and went through so much of the same. I miss her still as I am now a mom to two little ones - wish they got to know her but I know her presence is still strong - she's in my son's eyes and my daughter's stong will. Thank you for posting this...remembering my mom, no matter what the memories are, still reminds me of how much love she had and how much i still love her. Happy Mom's day to you.

Happy Mother's Day! Enjoy your weekend with the ladies.

Love the HONY pictures. Everyday that site makes me get a little weepy. Love it.

Nadia Fatima said...

how I'd love to fly via Etihad airline's apartment! also, I am an immigration attorney and often have to prep married couples regarding the specificity of that interview! they learn new things about each other! nadia[at]anrllp.com

thrifty amos said...

It's so good to have time for yourself, enjoy. I spent the first few hours away from my wee man looking at his photo. It got easier and then fun. Enjoy:)

Erin said...

You know, you warned us the husband's essay was heart-breaking... but oh, it is so heartbreaking. My mother died of cancer - it's probably ok to shed a few tears for her this Mother's Day.

Samantha Fletcher said...

I look forward to your post everyday! Thank you for making me smile - you are truly fabulous. Enjoy San Fran x

Briseidy said...

just wanted to say thank you for giving me lots of funny and interesting things to read...how to stop a wedding gave me a crack!
have a great weekend!

Alexandra said...

I agree that the essay should haev come with a serious warning. I am currently going through breast cancer treatment, and I am wondering how many mothers days are in store for my family with me. Reading this made a particular dark day today a few shades darker.

I'm from Mexico and my husband and I have gon through that immigration process and we weren't questioned at all! I went to an "interview" by myself and only had to talk about our relationship and show pictures of our wedding :)

Vanessa Norlander said...

Hi, I am from Australia and going to San Francisco for just over a week in October. I am hoping that you do a post on all of the things you love there. Have fun! Happy Mother's Day.

Jessica said...

Love the Frozen video, but this one is even better:

I'm married to a Japanese man and when we went to the immigration interview, they didn't ask us anything! We had prepared an envelope full of evidence that our marriage was real (photos, documents, etc.) and he didn't want to see any of it! He just told us (bad) immigration jokes while putting approval stamps on our papers!

Collette, you could give your mom this online class for Mothers Day (if she is computer savvy) http://www.craftsy.com/class/decorating-from-the-inside-out/540?_ct=sbqii-sqjuweho-qbb&_ctp=540,9

I just noticed it on Craftsy today. The classes I've taken were excellent.

Great links, Joanna

My husband and I have been through an Australian immigration interview when he moved from the US to be with me. It wasn't as detailed as the one shown for the US but They could just tell if you were genuine .

18 vacations is a lot actually! I couldn't even dresm of affording that many. But don't forget vacations with your adult children and grandchildren. Could be as great or better! I have had many great vacations growing up with the extended family on the Texas gulf coast.
