Have a Beautiful Weekend.


What are you up to this weekend? My sister is in town, and I’m so happy to be able to hang with her. The boys are crazy excited to have her staying with us, especially since she arrived with the Big Book of Trains. Hope you have a good one, and here are a few fun links from around the web…

Every conversation between a parent and child in four conversations.

Mindy Kaling just said, “Everyone cool is reading The Clasp.”

The nostalgia machine is such a flashback.

Soup for a friend.

Coming soon: $69 flights to Europe!!!!! (!!!)

Toddlers in the kitchen are inspiring.

What a lovely fall dress.

50 amazing movies on Netflix, if you’re cuddling up this weekend.

Dating a woman for the first time.”

Every celebrity interview. So funny and true.

Three beautiful European home tours.

For all you Andy Samberg fans. ;)

And a big reminder: Hatch is offering 15% off their beautiful fall/winter collection with the code 15FROMJO, until Sunday.

    i don’t know… but flying for such a low rate might seem great but what are the employees being paid? this sounds like a walmart race to the bottom situation. something about this is making me think early am!

  4. The celeb interview article made me laugh out loud! And I LOVE that you used Veronica’s photo, she’s a very talented friend of mine.

    So my husband and I have been on the ‘Nostalgia Machine’ for 2 hours now…

    Thank you for an interesting Saturday night. The more wine we drink, the funnier this web page gets.

    PS ..taking a long flight soon and was looking for a good read. I’ll definitely get the “Clasp”. Thanks for the link!

  13. Nadine says...

    Celebrity interviews are MY pet peeve…especially when they say she doesn’t have a stitch of makeup on & her hair in a ponytail.

  14. Thanks for sharing all those great links Jo, I loved the cozy fall dress!! I hope you have a lovely family time!! :)
    Marianthi, xo

    I clicked on the nostalgia machine link, hit 1982, went down a rabbit hole and didn’t come out for over an hour! Even my husband got sucked in. SO AWESOME!

  17. Happy to hear your sister is visiting! We are heading to Apple Hill Farms for Apple cider donuts & hunting down the perfect pumpkin.

    The sweater dress looks sooo comfy! If Mindy approves it, I must read it! Enjoyed all the links as always–so much food for thought!

    Cheers to the Weekend! *clink *clink with eye contact ;)
