Have a Relaxing Weekend. | Cup of Jo

What are you up to this weekend? My mom is visiting us, and tonight we’re going to watch my favorite movie (so good and intense!). Also, Toby’s hosting his 14th birthday party tomorrow, even though he was just born. Hope you have a good one, and here are a few links from around the web…

Today on Big Salad we interviewed Ilana Glazer (of Broad City and Babes fame) and she told us the sexiest thing to try in bed and I loved it and her and you and everything.

A strange side effect of parenting.

Have you seen the Gap x Dôen collab that the internet is losing its mind over? Very pretty!

Welcome to my ex-boyfriend orientation. “If you want to know how I’m feeling, just do the normal thing and go through my Twitter likes. They are, as always, an elaborate, coded message for you to interpret. And if you want to know if I’m dating someone, snoop on Venmo like a mature adult.” (New Yorker)

This might be polarizing, but god I love a tuna pasta.

Wow, this Maine house is a stunner.

Omg these auntie essays made me teary: “I get to be the support system I wish my mom had had,” “I love being the lady down the street,” and “There are so many ways to have children in your life.”

Style direction: You want to dress like a 1992 J.Crew catalog model.

Have you been seeing bubble skirts everywhere? I don’t love them, though I wonder if I will in three months once I’ve seen a million…

…which reminds me of this funny reader comment from Hali: “Trends are so funny. Currently, the slouchy bag thing is a hard pass for me…but watch: in three months, they’ll wiggle their way into various carts I’ve compiled across the internet until one finally makes it to my doorstep and I’ll be so pleased with it. Why does that happen?! I’m asking it not to happen! Someone hold me accountable to my own taste!”

An open letter to whomever keeps making my wife laugh on Slack, hahahaha.

What a cool zip detail on this dress.

Plus, three reader comments:

Says Calilin on Toby and Anton in conversation: “I was all hot and flustered giving my seven-year-old a bath and threw my hair up in a messy bun on top of my head. Looking at me with wide eyes, she said, ‘Wow, you are so beautiful. If you worked at a clothing store, they’d have you standing in the window.’”

Says Emily on 10 readers share sentimental framed items: “When I was five, I was angry with my dad, so I drew a picture of him and labeled it ‘Bad Dad.’ It had everything: his glasses, his bald head, the Saint Christopher he always wore. He loved it so much that he framed it, and it hung in his office for 25 years. When he passed away unexpectedly last month, I brought it home and now it hangs on my wall.”

Says Laurie on let’s find this reader sandals for a trip: “Haha, I feel like this whole comment section is your readership turning into Midwestern moms! Next we’re going to tell Joanna to make sure she brings an extra coat and some rhubarb for the neighbors. It comes from a place of love. ‘Joanna, what if your car breaks down and you have to walk to the gas station in those sandals?!’”
