Good Friday morning to you! I hope that you had a good week. Mine was pretty uneventful except for the bird incident. Wednesday night a bird flew in when I opened the door.  An hour and a half later, after chasing the bird and my two helps pups chasing me the bird was waiting in the attic for the critter guy.

I made these Salsa Verde Chicken Enchiladas last night and they are easy and delicious.

I have these Slow Cooker Shredded Beef White Enchiladas from How Sweet Eats on my list to make.

I am thinking of making this decadent looking dessert drink Dirty Snowmen from Delish.

I realize we are almost 2 weeks into the new year but this list of 21 Actions to Help You Start the Year Off Right from the Vault Files  has some excellent suggestions.

I love this article How the Swedish Death Cleanse Will Organize Your Life Once and For All.

Just a reminder if you are a fan of Kristy Woodson Harvey The Secret to Southern Charm  her latest book is coming out April 3! Mark your calendars!

If you are looking for a few books to add to your winter reading list check out 12 Books On Our Reading List by House of Harper

Are you a fan of historical fiction? Here is a list of The Biggest Historical Fiction Coming in 2018.

Have you ever watched a movie or a TV show and days later you are still thinking about it?  I recently watched the fabulous Jewish Film Showcase movie Ahead of Time: The Extraordinary Journey of Ruth Gruber on PBS and I cannot stop thinking about what an extraordinary woman Ruth Gruber was. The youngest woman in the world to earn a PhD, which she earned at 19, she wrote her thesis on Virginia Wolf, she explored the arctic, and Alaska and she served 7 decades as a foreign correspondent and a photo journalist and this is just a small list of a few of her accomplishments. If you would like to learn more about the movie click HERE.

That is it for this week! If you have something to share, a movie, book, podcast, recipe or whatever we would love to hear about it. 

Have a safe and fabulous weekend.
