My *heart* list

Yes, I follow Rosie a lot:

So, there are things that are especially making me smile right now. And I thought I’d make a list (ala Oprah’s gratitude journals from years ago because- let’s face it- we need some smiles right now).

Here’s my current I heart you list…

  • 3 Musketeers Mint Minis - I keep a bowl filled with them on my desk at work. The perfect treat!
  • Saturday Night Live
  • My Bears defense - I think I ended up with them on my fantasy football team only because it was tradition AND they kinda sucked last year.
  • Tony Romo - I still don't quite buy the buzz, but he's also part of the reason why my fantasy team is 5-0.
  • Second wave feminists who are woman enough to talk about their mistakes and what we, 3rd & 2nd wavers, can do together.
  • My job.
  • My friends, especially the ones who smack me on the back of my head when I start hating on myself.
  • And of course, the kid.
OK, your turn...if you want.

I've never tried 3 Musketeers Mint Minis! Might have to go out and get some of those. Here's my top 5 *heart* list for today...

1. Orange Vanilla Rice Dream (newly discovered and now my favorite dessert).
2. Fall in NYC.
3. Girls who speak their minds and support each other.
4. Women who shake things up and make me think.
5. Men who support women who try to shake things up (my hubby, in particular).

Oh, you know I have to try the 3 Musketeers Mint Minis with my sweet tooth and all. And I absolutley agree-- SNL is just inspired right now and I am thrilled to see female comics and writers get their due.

haha!! They are delish!! Of course, eating 4 in a row isn't great, but I figure that the unwrapping slows me down.

BUT I gotta look for that Orange Vanilla Rice Dream...love Orange & Vanilla!

Frederick, A Virtual Puppet Performance - Read by Michael Shannon

WOW...this is my first post during the Coronavirus pandemic! I hope you and your loved ones are healthy and safe. Thanks to the Chicago Children’s Theatre, the city’s largest professional theater devoted exclusively to children and families, for launching a new YouTube channel, CCTv: Virtual Theatre and Learning from Chicago Children’s Theatre. To kick if off we are treated to Frederick. Here's hoping this helps with your little ones. Or is a comfort to everyone of all ages. Chicago Children’s Theatre’s all-new virtual puppet performance was created while all of the artists were sheltering in place, working with resources limited to what they had in their homes or on their laptops. Frederick is directed by CCT Co-Founder and Artistic Director Jacqueline Russell. Puppets and sets were designed, built and puppeteered in a home studio by Grace Needlman and Will Bishop, CCT’s Director of Production, the creative team behind CCT’s annual series of Beatrix Potter puppet show

Book Review: Wolfpack by Abby Wambach

Less than a year ago, Abby Wambach took the stage at Barnard's commencement and gave a speech that shook many, including myself, to the core . Her speech went viral and I made the above image in order to share the highlights of her speech. Earlier this month Abby released the speech in book form. Wolfpack : How to Come Together, Unleash Our Power, and Change the Game is short (less than 100 pages) but is much more than just her speech . You get a peek into how the speech came together and why she said everything. And because the book is short and is an expanded speech, it moves quickly. I feel that it moves with the same ferocity that Abby use to move down a soccer field. And you might find yourself cheering as she takes you through the story. Abby has always been one of my favorite players. The way she ran amok on the pitch was exactly the way I felt I played sports. Never caring how you looked and giving it your all. Leaving it all on the field. When she retired from socc
