Have a Fun Weekend. | Cup of Jo



What are you up to this weekend? We’ve had a busy week, so I’m excited to catch up on sleep! We’re also doing an Easter egg hunt with these little bunnies. Have a good one – take gentle care of yourself — and here are a few fun links from around the web…

Guys, I went on my first date after divorce, eeks! Here’s how it went. (Big Salad)

Trip idea: Hike and hammock through the Swiss alps. “The world’s first hammock hiking trail in southern Switzerland takes hikers into quiet corners of the Alps — with their beds in their backpack for lazy pit stops and overnight stays.”

My forever go-to lip gloss is on sale.

The real reason I take so many selfies with my daughter.”

Making these overstuffed quesadillas this weekend.

Have you heard Beyoncé’s new album Cowboy Carter? (Loving this song.) Writes the NYTimes (gift link): “Beyoncé wrote on Instagram that the album was ‘over five years in the making,’ and that ‘it was born out of an experience that I had years ago where I did not feel welcomed’… Fans zeroed in on her appearance at the Country Music Association Awards in 2016, where she performed her song ‘Daddy Lessons’ with the Chicks, and drew backlash online. ‘The criticisms I faced when I first entered this genre forced me to propel past the limitations that were put on me.’”

I never thought I’d say this, but LaGuardia airport is actually cool now.

How to remember people’s names.

Just got these strappy sandals and plan to wear them all summer.

What a fun, colorful Brooklyn house. (NYTimes gift link)

I just started reading this buzzy novel. Have you read it?


Plus, three reader comments:

Says Angela on a parenting realization: “I used to wish my parents were more raptly watching the movie of my life, but now I kinda realize…to them, it’s like a foreign film. They’re so lost! Maybe even a little bored! They might not find it fascinating or even ‘good,’ but they still love me. And also, I know the movie is good.”

Says Rachel on four cute things lately: “Thanks to all the CoJ readers who recommended Bluey, I bought the DVD for my developmentally delayed 23-year-old son. He loves it. His favorite scene is when Bluey and Bingo are lying down flat, pretending to be fish. Now he does it all the time, all 6’3″ of him, lying on the floor pretending to be a dog pretending to be a fish. The cute part? He gets his little brother (my 18-year-old 6’2″ son) to do it with him. My sweet teenager happily gets on the floor with him and pretends to be Bingo, and it is hilarious and tear-jerking all at the same time.”

Says Linda on five most rewatchable movies: “As I scrolled the comments, I could not believe how many people paralleled my own list (Mean Girls, Clueless, Home Alone…). I’ve been a loyal reader of CoJ for more than a decade, and it felt so good, out of nowhere, to be reminded why. My people are here.”
