Top o' the weekend, to ya!

Tomorrow we're hosting my mother-in-law's birthday party and since it's also St. Patrick's Day, of course we're having corned beef and cabbage. My mother-in-law loves bread pudding so I'm also making an amazing bread and butter pudding with whiskey sauce from this cookbook that I've had for years, and I'm still seeking out a great recipe that includes Irish cream for a more traditional birthday cake, too. #Carbspatricksday.

On Wednesday, I dressed my children in orange, and wore it myself, in support of the courageous youth and educators who participated in the #walkout. My family and I will be marching in Omaha next weekend in support of common sense gun laws and I hope that everyone who is able will do the same.

Like everyone else, I was so saddened to hear of the deaths of Hubert de Givenchy and Stephen Hawking this week. The two men led wildly different lives, but they each contributed so much to the arts and sciences. Our world is a dimmer place for their loss.

I love that Sharon Stone did this and hope it helps change the way we think when we think about women over 50.

A good read about how it's important that children see normal, average people of color doing everyday things in literature (in addition to heroes).

I really enjoy Tana French and Gillian Flynn novels so I'm eager to read The Woman in the Window.

If Offtrack leather leggings are everything this article says they are, I am SOLD.

Have a great weekend, and watch out for little green men!
