Sunny thoughts...

There is nothing to bring you into that happy place like 
warm weather, sunny skies, and blossoming flowers.

Spring Break is over but love is still in the air...

So go ahead and take a ride with the top down...

Put on a pretty dress...

and take that much needed breather : )

We deserve it every now and then!
Thanks for stopping by dolls!

Mildred Pierce

Who can resist?
I tuned in for every episode (which may have contributed
to the lack of weekend blog posts) and I loved it!

Starring Acadamy award winner...Kate Winslet as Mildred Pierce.

and the beautiful Evan Rachel Wood as Veda Pierce.

Set in 1920-1930's in the suburbs of Los Angeles.

About a mother's struggles with raising her two daughters on her own...

finding love...

and overcoming heartache.

It was truly a remarkable five part mini-series that had it's final show this past Sunday night.
If you missed it, I highly recommend watching it On Demand if you already have HBO.
If you don't, I advise you to buy it. It does have the usual racy scenes that are trademark of
an HBO show, but nothing too bad.

I applaud Kate Winslet for taking on this role...she outdid herself! Not many can fill the
shoes of the notorious Joan Crawford.

Great job HBO!!
