Have a happy weekend!



My darlings, what are you up to this weekend? The weather is supposed to be gorgeous! We'll be taking long walks with Toby in the sling (he's newly obsessed with taxis), and at night, Alex and I are planning to watch the original Thomas Crown Affair. (What is it about crooks?) Have a wonderful one, and meanwhile, here are a few great posts from around the web...

Mad Men photos.

Bike shelf for small spaces.

Is it a vase? No, it's a necklace!

How to make NYC's best cookies.

Cutest pregnancy outfits. (Of course she's Swedish.)

Ten ways to spend a rainy day.

Playing with the moon.

Taxi booties!

And a random tip: My new favorite thing is French dry shampoo. You can skip a shower, and it makes you look beautiful and bedheady.

Chaucee said...

Beautiful pictures Joanna! Hope you, Toby, and your husband have a nice relaxing weekend : )

misspops said...

cute family!

Giulia said...

I'm laughing because I use the same shampoo...I didn't click, just saw the code.

You might want to take Toby by Strawberry Fields in Central Park, eh? Anyone who sees this, Imagine Peace is "collecting" tweets for John's birthday tomorrow.

ciao!

Poor Fish Girl said...

Such a beautiful family! have a happy weekend! :)

Aura said...

I love that last photo of you and your little one. So sweet.

Thanks for the link to the cute pregnancy outfits. I'm 14 weeks pregnant and running out of options with what feels good around my big round belly :)

Melissa Blake said...

what sweet photos! Have a lovely weekend, Joanna!

geri e. said...

Oh my word! He is such a beautiful little boy! I'm so happy for you both. And enjoy Thomas Crown Affair (classic!).

Hello darling Joanna!

So, this post is fantastic. And can I just say that you and Toby and your husband are all so sweet and that I just want to squeeze Toby's chubby cheeks and give him a big kiss...he melts my heart all over the floor. :)

So, these links are brilliant! I saved loads of photos from them. I love the bike rack-so adorable, and that awesome necklace, those cookies look DELICIOUS, and the pregnancy outfits are awesome...I love her dresses! Oh, and everything else is brilliant and as soon as I saw the taxi booties I was like, "AW!" They're so precious.

Have a fantastic weekend, dear.

XOXO-
Rachel

Very excited about this weekend, it's Thanksgiving here (north of the border!) and it's going to be gorgeous. Would love to take my babies for a walk in Central Park... enjoy!

Sasha said...

I love, love, love the original Thomas Crown Affair! Steve McQueen is so dreamy! I'm sure you will love it too!

Joanna Goddard said...

camilla, congratulations!!!

Camilla Leila said...

thanks Joanna, it's been a crazy day telling everyone and I just can't believe I'm so lucky.

and I've already emailed Max Wanger :) I just adore his work from your wedding.

kate reymann said...

Sweet Jesus your kiddo is so cute.

Thank you for the link to the dry shampoo. I am two years into motherhood and I am still struggling to find time to shower more than four times a week. My hair suffers so.

Ashlae said...

The dry shampoo is great in theory - but that particular brand contains silica. Although natural, if inhaled, silica can cause serious complications (which is why there's a warning on the bottle saying not to inhale, and to use in a well-ventilated area). Still, very scary! Sadly, I haven't found a dry shampoo that I both like, and is safe.

Ashlae said...

And PS - Toby is a total babe.

Meredith said...

Oh I'm so happy you finally posted a recipe of the infamous levain cookies. the recipe i tried was absolute perfection (http://meredithlockhart.blogspot.com/2010/07/i-love-holidays.html)!! have you tried your recipe yet?

Vinyasa Mama said...

so cute! he's so big now!

Grandma Kathleen said...

O.M.G. toby is getting cuter every day. (and I thought he was cute the first picture of him i saw!)

Geeta said...

He is adorable...and growing so fast!

Anonymous said...

Beautiful photos! What kind of camera do you use?

Francesca said...

if you like a good heist, the original 'taking of pelham 123' is great, and the soundtrack is fantastic. the downside is no steve mcqueen, but the upside is walter matthau. have a lovely weekend.

Mama Mogantosh said...

Lovely pics. I like the dry shampoo..I'm about four weeks into the 'no poo' thing and my hair is so bad. It's driving me loco. Talk of fancy shampoo is so appealing...

Dancing Branflake said...

I love dry shampoo! Have an awesome weekend. Your son is seriously way too adorable.

Diana Mieczan said...

Ohhh those photos are adorable...Wish you a wonderful weekend and I am off to check out your links!
Kisses

I just saw the movie Popeye last night and thought of your family dressed up as Popeye, Olive Oyle, and Swee' Pea for Halloween. I'm not sure what we're going to be, but I'm collecting toilet paper rolls to make a white wig for my little girl. She could be a king. But which one?

Toby's gonna be a heartbreaker! What a beautiful boy x

Zia Meadows said...

My Mother used to use dry shampoo back in the sixty when she had young children and she gave it to me for my first baby bag, theres nothing like a 2 day labour to ruin your hair-do! It only costs about £2 ($3.50) in chemist shops in the UK though!

who.knows.what.dreams.may.go said...

Toby is sooo cute! Happy weekend. mine is very chill so far which is great:)

Joanna Goddard said...

meredith, thank you for the other recipe, i can't wait to try them both! and haha, diana, that's an awesome halloween costume idea. Ashlae, THANK YOU for the note about inhaling it -- i'm going to use my bottle next to a window and then run to the other room! scary! and zoe, i'm so JEALOUS that you met liv's baby!!!!!!!! i am aching to hold her in my arms!

Lisa said...

Hi Joanna,
How about that Thomas Crown Affair!
A seriously a sexy film. Hope you all are enjoying a beautiful weekend. Wanted to stop by to mention that I just recently discovered Lisa Warninger and saw that you know of her too. She inspired me to stay up late and write about repose. Something that you both have a gift for.
Aren't little boys the best? He is just darling.
best,
Lisa

Those photos are beautiful, especially the last one of you and Toby. Your blog always makes me so happy. xo

Sarah @ Natural History said...

Gorgeoue baby photos - possibly the most photogenic age?

My weekend consisted of a scruptious lunch at The Big Bang here in Oxford (bangers & mash, of course, of the v. fancy variety - I had wild venison sausages) and work, work, work. Getting the blog properly in order.

jules said...

Checked out the pretzel shop this weekend + it was amazing! Thanks for recommendation!

Hope you + the fam enjoyed the gorgeous weather we are having in NYC.

Joanna - Hope you had a lovely weekend with the family (great new photos)! I'm super excited right now because I just completed my third Marathon in Chicago (and am equally as excited for a week of rest - I think I'm going to have to try those cookies). I think the Berlin Marathon is next on my list, so am definitely going to look to the time you and Alex spent there for tips and inspiration!

Oblio and Arrow said...

Hey Joanna! I hope this doesn't sound creepy, but Saturday, my mom, sister and I were visiting NYC and were about to cross the street to the YOYA on Greenich Village, and I could have sworn I saw you coming out of the store! By the time we got there, you were out of sight or I would have tried to say hello! That store is beautiful! We loved looking around and dreaming of the baby I'm expecting in March!

MyLittlePhotographs said...

ahh! Such sweet pictures of the family.

Gisela said...

You are such a beautiful family. Congrats to your little Mr Cutie Cute - HE is adorable!
