Here are all my favorite things from the past week!
On TV -
- I realize I need to do a whole separate post about my thoughts on TV lately, but here is a quick snapshot. This week I still have a few Chicago Fire, Chicago PD, Law and Order SVU and one Parenthood on my DVR to watch. I finally caught up on a lot of shows – Suits, Scandal, Grey’s, Nashville, and my newest guilty pleasure and pick for this week – Lindsay on OWN network. I don’t do a lot of reality TV – I used to, then tired of it pretty quickly. I love that Oprah believes in Lindsay – and will also give her the smack down when she needs it! She was such a great actress (Parent Trap, Mean Girls, Georgia Rule) and has been obviously heading down the Hollywood doomed child star spiral. Please Lindsay! Remember Whitney! When Oprah tells you to get it together – GET IT TOGETHER! It’s a lot of her unpacking mountains and mountains of piles of clothes and being really unaccountable for anything. I love that her life coach is the Mom from Baby Boy. I’m pulling for her!
On the Page – How to be Happier at Work (Real Simple April 2014) The majority of us spend the majority of our time at work. Why not be happier there? This article gives tips on how to do that.

On my Wish List-
- I’m loving the Lily Mini Messenger bag from Franklin Planner. It’s matching all of my electronics and planners so it would be the perfect bag to put all my stuff in!
On my Pinterest Boards -
- I love this simple cart from IKEA used as a bar! Photo originally from LauraGravelle.com photography website. I have experimented in different ways and different rooms over the years of where to have our “bar” live. This will be perfect for our new basement! (Side note to my sisters – look at Mom’s everyday drinking glasses on the top shelf left!) Also our basement renovation project is still coming along! Continue to checkout my inspirations for the room on my Basement Makeover Pinterest Board.
In the Kitchen -
Cranberry and Avocado Salad with Candied Spiced Almonds and Sweet White Balsamic Vinaigrette from Honest Cooking - it’s getting to be the time of year when I switch from lots of soups to lots of salads. How delicious does this salad look?
