I hope you all had a fabulous week and have dug out of the snow if you live in the northeast part of the USA. Here are all my favorites this week.
On TV –
- I have not written a Friday Favorites in awhile and I have a lot of TV catching up to do on my DVR. I know it was not this week but I MUST give my Friday Favorite to Parenthood. For six years, I laughed and cried along with this show every Thursday. The finale was PERFECT. I rank it in my top 5 best ever finales. (hmmm… maybe that’s another blog post.) What do Peter Krause and Matt Lauria have in common? Both have been part of TWO best-ever series finales. Parenthood and Six Feet Under (Krause) & Friday Night Lights (Lauria.) Who is not included in that? Lauren Graham. I just finished Gilmore Girls on Netflix and that was one of the WORST series finales I have ever seen! Glad Parenthood came through for us!
On the Page –
- The Good Housekeeping March 2015 issue is making me so happy. The cover says it all – ” You can organize your life!” This issue comes just in time for me to start my Spring Break to-do list.
In the Kitchen –
- The Scrumptious Pumpkin – Easy 15 minute Maple Spice Squash If you read along here, you know how I pick my recipes. The key words were “easy”, “15 minutes” and if you read the recipe “no pots and pans to wash.” Sold! I tried this out last week and it was delicious! I forgot to take a picture of my attempt (maybe because I ate it so fast.) So this is the gorgeous pic from The Scrumptious Pumpkin.
This recipes makes 4 servings (about 1 cup per serving.)
I’m back on Weight Watchers and using her calculations 1 cup = 4 points.
For my Homemakover-
- We have ripped down a lot of wallpaper, and we still have much more to do. Our third bedroom, which is currently being used as an office / den is one room where we did not even begin to think about taking down the wallpaper. And at this point – I can’t even imagine tearing it all down. So I am attempting to “work with what I’ve got.” Here’s a picture of the wallpaper. It can make you a little dizzy! My brain is in overdrive and I am determined to turn these old, americana, psychedelic patterned walls into a vintage treasure of a room! (Hint – the silver and black are popping out to me.) Stay tuned!
Hope you had a great week. Leave me a comment and let me know the things you are loving this week. Have a great weekend, and thanks for reading!
