TGIF! What are your plans this weekend? We're having a Superbowl party (green card in hand, I'm planning on singing along with the national anthem this year- sorry Queeny) and preparations are already well under way. Our friend Nat is smoking a giant cut of brisket, I have been instructed to make a "seven-layer dip" and Isaac is rustling up his famous nachos (a task he takes VERY seriously). There will also be plenty of chilled white wine along with the Budweiser and a stoop that's (hopefully) warm enough for any game-weary girls to chat upon- a vital component of any sports-related party, as far as I'm concerned.  And hey, thanks so much for all of your sweet and charming comments on A Cup of Jo. I read them all -they were so kind and touching, and I was tickled by the many hilarious reactions to our beloved naked surfer "Sandy" (FYI, he's the work of incredible LA based artist, Despina Stokou). Thank you for the love, you guys. And welcome new readers! I'm so happy you're here. My usual Friday link list below:

Love this chair from cool LA designer, Bend

Also in LA, thank god I don't live anywhere near this shop. I'd never have any money.
