What are you up to this weekend? Tomorrow I’m going to see the movie Challengers — have you seen it? I feel like everyone walking down the street is talking about it. Also, today we published Big Salad’s Swimsuit Issue! Hope you have a good one, and here are a few links from around the web…

Embrace the hot restaurant dupe. If you can’t get into Carbone, for example, go to Cafe Spaghetti! (NYTimes gift link)

Deciphering your kid’s “mom” texts, lol.

Blueberry muffin loaf.

Have you seen the trailer for Babes? So many funny lines.

The easy shorts I always reach for on weekend mornings.

Good advice: Take two trips.

These strappy sandals — in the perfect shade – are so pretty for summer. (They’re also having a big sale.)

This famous apple poster looks so good in kitchens!

Getting into bowls for dinner.

Cool looks from the Met Gala — Ayo Edebiri’s dress is gorgeous. (Vogue)

A smart tip for feeling good on a long walk.

Made me laugh.

Plus, two reader comments:

Says Elizabeth on this bride did a first look with her grandmothers: “My beloved grandmother walked me down the aisle at my wedding. I treasure the memory of our clinging to each other – me out of nerves, her because she didn’t want to trip!”

Says Lexy on the secret to the best night out: “My husband and I speak Spanish, so our go-to karaoke song is Despacito. It slays every time, and hearing my husband bring the house down with Daddy Yankee’s rap solo makes me forget I’m the middle-aged mother of his children — instead, I feel like the 18-year-old who grabbed his hand for the first time while walking to class in college, felt his wide palm and long fingers, and thought in wonder, ‘This one is mine.'”
