Have a Fun Weekend.

What are you up to this weekend? We’re going to our friends’ apartment for dinner tonight, and tomorrow is my friend’s bridal shower. I put together that newlywed game, where you ask the groom questions beforehand and then see if the bride gets the same answers. Can’t wait:) Hope you have a good one, and here are a few fun posts from around the web…

Mindy Kaling on happiness.

This is weird and amazing.

My bedtime routine.

  1. I’m doing the “could you go 40 days without being mean” challenge starting tomorrow! Posted on my blog about it this morning.

    I always look forward to these links on Friday! Thanks Joanna!

  2. OK, I have been thinking about that Smile post all week. I totally had NO IDEA you weren’t suppose to rinse for 30 minutes after you brush your teeth. I’ve been asking my friends about this and all the girls I ask have no idea about it. But all the boys weirdly seem to know this. It just seems so strange!

  3. Thanks for this lovely post. The weekend is now officially over on this side of the pond, but I’m burning the midnight oil trying to extend it as much as I can. I’ve heard really good things about “Transparent” too. I just finished watching “The Affair”and it’s really good. Have a great week.


  4. Such a cute picture!

  5. I fell in love with Transparent a few months ago and binge watched it within 2 days. Highly recommended!

  6. I played the Mr and Mrs game at my sister’s wedding, it went down well, thankfully!

  7. I’d love to try NARS Matte Multiple too! If you give it a try let us know :) I’ve started using Revlon’s Plum Velour that you recommended awhile back and it’s fantastic, looks good on everyone!

  8. love your pictures!!! angie

  9. History in colour was a lovely link. It made me think of The Giver.


  10. Great links!
    I’m always so envious of your weekends. You guys do all these things, and yet when the weekend comes around I’m always so knackered I don’t want to do anything – and I don’t even have kids yet!

  11. Oh that sweet Anton face gets me every time! :) :) :)

  12. I really enjoyed this week’s round up of interesting posts. I laughed so hard at the “how to fall out of love” piece! Have a wonderful weekend!

  13. Transparent is deceptive because at first, you might be like, “meh”. The characters will probably make you nuts. However, by the end of the season, if you just stay with it, you will probably end up thinking it’s the most AMAZING show ever done – which is how I felt and how everyone I know who watched it felt. It ends up blowing you away. So, just a tip: stay with it. Don’t give up.

  14. You always select the most interesting articles! Each and every time there is something that fascinates me and triggers me to think about myself, the world, relationships or life in general. I’m only 21, which means that many of your blogposts and/or the articles you link can’t be applied to my own life at all, but still they always capture my interest, fascinate me and “teach” me something. Thanks for sharing.

  15. oh man, that new yorker article is so funny! also really enjoyed the better smile article. my boyfriend is a dental hygiene king (me, not so much), but i spotted a few things on that list that i bet he’d like to know :) have a great weekend, joanna!

  16. That little blondie is gorgeous!

  17. Um, I am right there with you on the bedtime routine! Start with: “I am so exhausted…”

  18. Transparent is great! Easily watchable (half hours) in a short amount of time AND they’re showing it for free tomorrow (Saturday). So even if you don’t have Amazon Prime, you can watch it all tomorrow. Really worth it!

  19. morgan, i’ll do a post about it! it’s by far my favorite shower game.

  20. Please tell me your recent bulk underwear purchase included some of the ones mentioned in the farting on planes article! Amazing.

  21. Transparent will be free on Amazon this Saturday!
    Anyone can watch Transparent at no cost on Saturday using the Amazon Instant Video app for TVs, connected devices and mobile devices, or online at

  22. a favorite part of my fridays… your lists. my husband and i watched one or 2 episodes of transparent. i liked it, he so-so. i highly recommend orphan black, if you haven’t seen it. happy weekend.

  23. Transparent is AMAZING. Really.

  24. I’d love to see the list of questions for the Newlywed game! My sister is getting married this year and I’d love to do this at her shower

  25. I am going to start watching Transparent this weekend – I finally finished The Affair, so this is next on my list!
