Toby and Anton

What are your plans for this weekend? Alex and I are going to a holiday party tomorrow, and I’m glamming it up! Also, Toby has plans to hang out with his fiancé on Sunday. (They got engaged at school the other day:) Hope you have a good weekend, and here are a few fun links from around the web…

I am in love with this dancer on Instagram. I’ve probably watched a hundred videos.

Also, this inspiring woman.

10 ways to convince yourself that you still love New York.

This one ingredient will give you the best hot chocolate ever.

Why little kids in Japan are so independent. (They even take the subway and run errands alone.)

Frownies are a thing? I have to admit, I’m curious to try them.

Michelle Obama really out-mommed herself, haha.

Wouldn’t you want to walk on this bridge?

When it comes to consent, just imagine that instead of initiating sex, you’re making someone a cup of tea. BRILLIANT.

Have you seen Instagram Husband?

And here’s our 2015 gift guide so far, if you’d like to see.

Have a good one. xoxo

    Oh darn, I was excited thinking about Frownies, perhaps an heir apparent to the cronut. Sadly I was wrong. I was stumped on the “Fr” though….fromage and brownies didn’t seem to work. Or does it?

    • jessica says...

      Don’t knock it ’til you try it!! Haha

  2. I saw the same cup of tea video last week and also shared it – such a great way to communicate the same message.

  3. Joanna Goddard says...

    i’m totally trying frownies now haha :) thanks for all the comments!!

  4. I love your blog. It’s always so sweet and simple!

  5. Tc says...

    Try Smoothies! I started using them a few months ago on forehead and for 11’s…great results and easy to use!

  6. Linda says...

    That New York article made me laugh so hard! I was in New York in July, and I was wondering if I would have a NY moment like that, but it didn’t really surface! Everyone was surprisingly nice! I did kind of feel like a cow being herded around at the Broadway shows we saw though!!

  7. Katie says...

    I really like the cup of tea video. Thank you. I love my Friday nights even more and feel like I have an evening planned by reading your blog and drinking wine (or a root beer float since I’m pregnant right now!) thank you!

  8. My husband saw the IG video and said to me “the strugge is real.” 😂 Yes. Yes it is.

  9. Maria says...

    Your boys are just adorable…

  10. Thanks for Instagram Husband discovery – website is fantastic too – approaching your wife – page is collector : “5. Hold the phone out to your side, this will force her to look into your eyes, as she is trained to look away from the phone.”

    • Kristina says...

      Thank you for the link, Laurel! So moving. Wow. xoxo

    • Joanna Goddard says...

      this is so great, thank you so much!

    • Lindsay says...

      Wow, thank you for sharing this video Laurel. Mandy’s message is so powerful and crucial for us all to consider. I wish this was mandatory viewing for all people, perhaps especially North Americans, right now.

  15. Mickey Fadeley says...

    I show that consent video at new student orientation for the college I work at. It’s brilliant!

  16. Trena says...

    Love my frownies! Kinda a pain to take off in the morning. And sometimes I peel them off in my sleep (oops), but they work!

  17. The instagram husband! I would only ever find something this hilarious on your blog :)

  18. kristen says...

    oh my, your boys are so cute! toby looks just like you and anton just like your husband. adorable! ♥

  19. I have been using frownies for at least 10 years. I use the one for between the eyes and the couple of times when I’ve forgotten I wake up with two deep red lines.
    They work!

  20. I love the list, especially the reasons to love NY! My fiancé and I have an apartment there even though the majority of our time is spent in Minneapolis, and these are hilarious! What an amazing and ridiculous city!

    Frownies are a thing! I’ve been wearing them on and off for years and they make a big difference. Once you have them on, you’ll notice how much you wrinkle your forehead at night and in your sleep. I wear them for a week or two before big events so I don’t have a big “frownie” in the middle of my face in pictures!

  22. Kelcey says...

    Oh man, are you saving the Dad gift guide for last? My dad is always the hardest to shop for!

    • Joanna Goddard says...

      yes, coming right up today! xoxo

  23. Laurel K says...

    Try the frownies – YOU WON’T REGRET IT!!!!!

  24. Oh I follow @balletbeautiful and I’m obsessed! So gorgeous!

  25. eg says...

    Speaking of ballet and tv and videos, and stuff to do…. has anyone seen Flesh and Bone on Starz? Just wondering if I should add it to my list of shows to drown in (currently on Fargo).
    Thanks!

    • m says...

      No, don’t watch it. It’s disturbing in an over the top, cliched soap opera way and there isn’t enough dancing to justify how gross you’ll feel afterward, even if they did assemble an amazing cast of professional dancers. I saw the first episode and that was enough.

  26. Lauren E. says...

    You always post the best links and it takes me an hour to read the whole post because I lose myself in whatever each link had to say!

    Love the 10 reasons… link. So, so, true.

  27. Darcy says...

    OMGOSH!!!! That Consent = a cup of tea video was amazing!! I love that so much—-people who are passed out, do NOT want a cup of tea!!

  28. Audra says...

    Instagram husband is hilarious!

  29. SO excited about season two of Transparent. I plan on starting as soon as I’m home from work (possibly with some dark chocolate hot chocolate, now that I’m craving it!).
