Whoo hoo! It’s Friday, the sun is shining in my part of the world, the day is beautiful, and I have to go enjoy it. You should, too, if you get the chance. These links will be waiting for you when you get back. Really. I promise.

Apparently you can clean a dirty pair of jeans by popping them in the freezer for a week. Although I’m not sure it so much cleans them as makes them very, very cold.

Dude, you have got check out the staying power of the word “dude.”

Today, my husband woke up early, and as I popped out of bed after him, he instructed me not wake up. “You’re supposed to snooze in the daylight,” he said. And I laughed, because I knew I’d get no more sleep. Not with “Daylight” by Matt and Kim playing in my head.

In our modern world, what should little girls be made of? Is it still sugar and spice and everything nice?

Holy cats. The mayor of Paris is cracking down on the city’s noisy nightlife by – I kid you not – deploying packs of mimes. MIMES. It’s magical.

  • London has gone full Blade Runner.
  • Not so bad.
  • My jeans look so damn cool after 6 hours at the ceramics studio.
  • 11 years. You have made my life what it is, Rand.
  • When you find out that @britneymuller has surreptitiously been taking photos of your butt on her phone.
Me: Why.
Her: Because it's perfect.
*swoon*

  • Hair toss, check my nails. Baby how you feeling? Thirty-nine as hell.
  • Me: You cannot go to sleep at 10pm EST.
Him: Watch me.
  • I didn't do nearly all that I set out to do today. But I had a lovely dinner thanks to this man and some excellent out of town guests. So perhaps the measure of a day isn't always about that damn checklist. (Maybe. Ask me again tomorrow when all the stress hits me. 🤔😅)
  • You can't expect things to look *exactly* like the picture in the cookbook. But sometimes they do anyway. #alisonroman #diningincookbook #diningin #cocoabananabread #instadesserts #baking
  • Here it is, folks. The paperback edition of my book is out today. The hardcover came out more than two years ago, so it's wonderful to know that this story of mine still has life and is, gasp, still selling copies. Don't miss the book that Lauren Graham called "the travel companion you'll be happy you brought along" and that some guy on Twitter said was "immature and stupid." It's available at Amazon, Barnes and Noble, and Indiebound. #bookstagram #summerreading #bookworms
