Have a Relaxing Weekend. | A Cup of Jo


What are you up to this weekend? The boys and I are walking to Red Hook, a neighborhood near us, to get key lime pie. It’s a nice walk with a very nice treat at the end! Also, I LOVED your comments on this post (and I love you). Have a good one, and here are a few fun links from around the web…

The best cure for a pimple.

A mental health reminder.

What an amazing essay about growing up as the child of undocumented immigrants. “Our parents have kids for the same reasons as most people, but their sacrifice for us is impossible to articulate, and its weight is felt deep down, in the body. That is the pact between immigrants and their children in America: they give us a better life, and we spend the rest of that life figuring out how much of our flesh will pay off the debt.” (The New Yorker)

I’ve been devouring this hilarious book about a woman and her dog.

Beautiful mirror rooms.

Digging the New York Times column The Hunt. Which would you pick???

The perfect headline. (New York Magazine)

These are my birthday wishlist.

Yummmmm, parmesan oven risotto.

A houseboat in NYC.

Plus, two reader comments:

Says Grace on what do you like about yourself: “I’m so good at doing nothing and relaxing. Yes, my husband calls me lazy sometimes but damn I create an incredible day on the couch: catching up on my fave podcasts, watching trash TV, browsing ThreadUp, spooning my dog and drinking warm beverages. When it’s time to put on your jammies is when I really thrive.”

Says Kelly on what do you like about yourself: “I like that I’m really good at styling my hair. Like big braids, awesome waves, cute ponytails, all of it. Unfortunately, I am about to start chemo (at age 33) and will be losing it. While it feels like I’m losing a huge part of me, this makes me think that I’ll have to just find something else I’m good at, too.”
