Brooklyn stoops

What are you up to this weekend? My dad is coming to visit, and we’re going to take long walks and see Ford v Ferrari. Hope you have a good one, and here are a few fun links from around the web…

Found! The coziest sweater.

How cute are these gift tags?

A great interview with Tom Hanks. Spielberg once said about him, “If Norman Rockwell were alive today, he would paint a portrait of Tom.” (New York Times)

We played this game at a friend’s house recently, and it’s hilarious. Would be perfect for Thanksgiving family hangs.

Salt and vinegar mashed potatoes!

Do babies cry in different languages? (NYT Parenting)

A pigeon made a nest with flowers.

Every Matt Damon movie, ranked. Do you agree?

What a pretty alternative to buying fresh flowers.

Plus, two reader comments:

Says Elise on a funny relationship question: “I just got home from our elementary school, where our dog Pippa goes for the reading program. No, she does not read. The kids read to her. The dog is non-judgmental, and the kids get one-on-one time. Kids and dogs are so special.”

Says Alyson on what’s your glark: “For so many years my grandma and mama would do the up-at-4am-basted-broiled-Norman Rockwell turkey. Then five years ago, it just popped up in conversation that no one really cared for it. So far, we’ve subbed homemade fried chicken, oven-roasted salmon, sliced prime rib, and, after one very challenging year, skipped the drama altogether and just made a huge meal out of our favorite sides.”
