Have a fabulous weekend!

My darlings, what are you up to this weekend? If you must know, I will be turning the grand old age of 31. We’ll be celebrating with a maternity massage and lobster rolls (and hopefully something peanut-butter-and-chocolatey). Have a wonderful weekend, my lovelies, and here are a few great posts from around the web…

A Paris onesie!

The Unhappy Hipsters tumblr makes me laugh out loud.

Cute pink blush.

The making of the Fantastic Mr. Fox.

Grandpa’s wedding.

A magic curtain!

Love Anna Bond’s shopping round-ups.

What a RAD identity for a design firm.

Yahoo, Tina Fey will be on the March cover of Vogue.

Now THAT’S a log cabin.

A black wedding dress. So chic.

A hilarious website about the Facebook updates of annoying married couples.

The Mast brothers are making me hungry. (Mmm, a salt + pepper chocolate bar.)

Side braids.

This Sixx family has seven kids but amazingly still finds time to renovate homes…and write a new book.

Pretty blouses. (Do people still call them blouses?)

Loved Abbey’s post about those moments of “absolute and perfect happiness–the ten to twelve that comprise a whole life.” Beautiful.

Plus, five Cup of Jo posts you might have missed:
* Floating houses.
* Cute summer dress.
* A day in the life of Abbey Road.
* Awesome parents.
* Staring contest.

    I’ll be enjoying the snow storm we got- and hoping they decide to close the library done so I don’t have to go to work!

    You should eat some of the Limited Edition White Chocolate covered Oreos, and dip them in creamy peanut butter. They’re really bad for you and full of calories but absolutely delicious!

  59. happiest of birthdays to you, joanna!! xoxo

  60. 1. Love Tina Fey. Love her. She is so cool!

    2. Black wedding dress – what a gutsy idea! I know that if I had tried that, I would have received a lot of complaints from people.

  70. so I am so unoriginal!!! I wrote the same thing as Hello Lindello and I did not even know it. I am just an unhappy hipster I guess!
