Have a Beautiful Weekend.

What are you up to this weekend? We are going to a lasagna party in Brooklyn tomorrow evening. I’m also reading this book and LOVING it. And Anton has started laughing at Toby’s antics! Like big adorable belly laughs. Warms my heart:) Hope you have a wonderful, relaxing weekend, and here are a few fun links from around the web…

I think I’m going sparkles this year for a holiday dress, hoping the hubby gets invited to a holiday party of sorts.I just love your posts! Enjoy your Lasagna Dinner/Weekend!

  14. I so admire your authenticity and humor, Joanna. Every post, every link makes me feel that much happier in my day. Thanks for that. Have a lovely weekend :)

  15. You have such beautiful links- like that subway video. Enjoyed my morning in bed watching them!

  16. Calling foul on the bike data. Mpls has taken the top spot across a number of surveys. It’s the first city that pops up searching ” most bike friendly city”

  17. The video of the twins is easily one of the most beautiful things I’ve ever seen. And the toddler and puppy? Delicious.

  18. You have a knack for picking beautiful photos for your Friday “Have a ___ Weekend” posts. I always look forward to them! xo


  19. Love the photo of the Pacific NW Ballet student…Angela Sterling takes all of our performance and rehearsal pictures here at PNB. She’s so talented!

  20. yay- see you tomorrow!

  21. Must comment on the bike map. I live in Sacramento and we have the best bike access hands down. You may find more bike friendly areas in other cities, but we have over 100 miles of straight up bike trail, crossing zero vehicle traffic (ever) along the river. Much better place to bike than the Bay….and even the cyclists from the Bay will tell you that. Just sayin’!

  22. Great links this week (as always)! I LOVE that holiday dress – WISH I had the money to buy it!! I also adore that brooklyn apartment… totally made me look around the small little flat my boyfriend and I just moved into in Australia and think “wow, we really don’t have any design skills at all”.

  23. Thank you for the discount code for PP! Is it valid on photo books or only cards?

  24. Um….Maybe Dallas has bike paths, but there is in no way a biking infrastructure (I mean, there are bike lanes on a few streets downtown, but I’ve never actually seen a biker on them). So odd.

    I guess they were just considering large cites. This is from our city website: Bicycling is a great way to get to know Fort Collins. With relatively flat terrain, 280+ miles of wide bike lanes, and 30+ miles of bike trails that follow both the scenic Poudre River and Spring Creek, bicycling is a fun, healthy, and environmentally friendly way to see all that Fort Collins has to offer. Check out the bike map to help you with the orientation of Fort Collins here.

    Those of us from Platinum rated bike cities (Fort Collins, Davis, Portland and Boulder) are mighty proud of our status :).

  26. Hello! Just tried the coupon code order my wedding thank-you cards and it says that my order doesn’t meet the requirements to use the code. Any idea what the requirements are?

  27. Aw the twin babies! It almost seems unfair to be born when everything inside the womb is so comfortable and the outside world so harsh in comparison…

  28. Wow I really need that back drape dress! Absolutely beautiful!!

  29. **Whoops! 263 miles of bike paths in SF which is 231 square miles. Still. Go Davis! :)

  30. I have the Gino boots that are on sale (in the brown leather). Love them! Easy to walk in and have a ’60s Marianne-Faithfull vibe.

  31. Have to agree with Shawn and Miroslava there! :)
    Fun trivia… Just looked it up: Davis has 55 miles of bike path in a city that is 9.9 square miles vs SF’s 5.6 miles of bike paths in 231 square miles! But survey said it only considered cities with over 350,000 residents, so… But Go Davis!

  32. Thank you for the little boy, little puppy nap link…brightened my day!

  33. I would love to live in that apartment in NY!!!
    Have a great weekend!

  34. Miroslava- was thinking the same thing!

  35. They forgot the real no. 1 bike city in the USA…Davis, CA

  36. Oh that little boy sleeping with his puppy! It’s just too much! They will be friends forever, I’ll bet!
