Happy Friday! What do you have planned for the weekend? We’ve been planning theme nights, and I’m in charge of this weekend’s date. It involves roller skating and a movie.

 Here are a few favorite links from around the web:

A Cup of Joe offers up cute ideas for Valentine’s Day gifts for every type of relationship. Do you celebrate V-Day? When we lived in NYC, we’d go to the same divey Italian spot; in NOLA, we went to an equally un-fancy Chinese place and the owner would read our palm. This year, we’re trying a (very no-frills) restaurant in Shreveport that’s supposed to have great food.

My girlfriends are OBSESSED with this product. Have you tried it?

I loved this story in the NYT about “A Married Name that Looks Nothing Like Us.” Did or would you take your spouse’s name? I always assumed that I would until I found out that Nate’s last name was (and still is) Jones. JONES?! It’s a lovely name but felt so simple after a lifetime of toting around a last name that no one could pronounce. I settled on a hyphen to make the whole thing even more complicated.

About that time we ran our first-ever marathon together. (My story in SELF.)

Gwyneth’s jade eggs are coming to Netflix. Will you be watching? (Of course I will. Sigh.)
