On TV – So many great season finales this week. Nashville, Grey’s Anatomy, SCANDAL! (Lizzie Bear, how could you? Mellie! Cyrus?! How did Olivia get on that balcony? I’m not happy – I’m #TeamJake.) Chicago Fire, PD, and Law & Order SVU are all on my DVR to watch this weekend. We still have one final episode left of Mad Men, but the scene that haunted me all week was Betty finding out her ultimate fate when her doctor was telling her husband as she sat alone on the exam table. I wonder if Betty Draper read Chelsea Handler’s article in the Huffington Post before she wrote Sally that letter?
On the Computer – This was a great read on Mother’s Day. I have always been a Chelsea Handler fan – I know people either love her or hate her and I fall on the heart side. I think I really like her because when I was younger I was always sort of the “loud mouth funny one” of the group. This article had me relating to her in even more ways. Here’s Why I am My Mother’s Daughter by Chelsea Handler on The Huffington Post’s Women Blog
On the Page – The June issues of all my magazines have started to arrive, so I know what I will being doing while drinking my morning coffee this weekend. The last of my favorites from my May issues is Good Housekeeping. I loved the cover story / interview with Kristen Bell. First, despite being from Hollywood, she looks like she’s had two babies. Next, I loved that she insisted that the Frozen character, Anna, be a less-than-perfect princess if she was going to play her. Lastly, she was honest about the ups and downs of her marriage and admitted that staying in a happy relationship sometimes takes work. Oh, and there’s also an awesome article on waffles.
In My Freezer – I eat two bananas a day. It is one fruit I never get tired of eating. This recipe looks amazing and I can’t wait to have these treats in my freezer this summer. Chocolate Dipped Almond Butter Banana Bites from A Healthy Slice of Life.
For the Home – One thing my daughter has a ton of is books! Here are some great storage solutions – 19 Unique Ways to Store and Display Your Tots’ Books from Pop Sugar.
For My Parenting Toolbox – As summer draws closer, we feel the pressure to organize the “perfect” vacation. To help you plan, read Ann Rivall’s When to Splurge and When to Save On a Family Vacation from the Huff Post Parents.
