I’m not blaming Shonda Rhimes this week for the lateness on this post. I could just call it This Week’s Favorites, but it just doesn’t sound as good. Oh well – here we go- all my favorites this week – one day late again!
On TV- Lots going on again on TV this week. I caught up entirely on Scandal. Yes, I watched Grey’s with the secret hope that Huck would show up and bang on Derek’s chest, too. I’m also finally catching up on Suits! This week my favorite is NBC’s crossover week of Chicago Fire, Law and Order SUV, and Chicago PD. Independently, I love all the shows, but they are even better when their story lines match up and we get to see all the characters working together to bring justice to Chicago and NY. My only question – when will the writers have Severide and Lindsay interact again? We have been spending a little bit of time at the hospital Chicago Med lately, and wouldn’t you know, with an announcement this week, I’ll have another show to add to the DVR list this fall.
On the Bookshelf – Simon, the new Gemiknight novel, is a modern-day Hamlet for YA readers, now available at Amazon.
In my Cocktail Glass – Just in time for the Kentucky Derby, stir up a classic Mint Julep, recipe from Southern Living.
On my Pinterest Boards- This file system pin on the board Be Organized led me to the website Operation Organization and the post 10 Ways to Simplify Your Life by Color Coding. Her color coding round-up included this filing system from A Bowl Full of Lemons. Do I really need to explain why this is on my favorites list? Obviously, following all these now!
On my Instagram– Target had the brilliant idea of using these adorable tea tins as vases. Great colors and I love things in threes!
On my Twitter Feed- O The Oprah Magazine @O_Magazine – 6 and 1/2 things you should stop expecting from other people
On my Playlist- After watching the “Unmask Her Beauty” episode of The Royals, I pushed rewind on the final scene, not because of the “romantic” moment, but rather I wanted to hear the song again. I did some digging on the internet, but came up empty. For this show, I wish E! Channel would take a page out of the CW’s handbook and include what music you hear during the episode and how to buy it. I tried searching again this week and found the name and artist – Safe House by Sofi Sofi. I couldn’t find anywhere to purchase or download the song until a You Tube user posted it.
While we are on the subject of the Royals — the real Royals welcomed a baby girl, fifth in line for the throne (she can party it up like Eleanor with no heir issues.) At press time of this post – no name yet!
What are your favorites this week? Leave me a comment and let me know. Have a wonderful weekend and thanks for reading.
