The weather in KC has been littered with thunderstorms this week. And last night, it turned cold. It has been in the windy 40s today. But the weekend is supposed to bring sunshine and warmer temps. Just in time for Mother’s Day! To all the mothers, mothers-to-be, stepmothers, grandmothers, and mother figures out there…I wish you a Happy Mother’s Day weekend. Do something for yourself on Sunday because you deserve it. 

Amazon Prime Recommendations: The Benefactor starring Richard Gere and Dakota Fanning. Gere is phenomenal as an eccentric philanthropist. Great suspenseful drama that keeps you glued to the screen.

Tyler Perry’s Acrimony starring Taraji P. Henson. I finally got around to seeing this wild thriller of a film. No one does woman scorned quite like Henson. Although some scenes or a little over the top, you won’t be able to stop watching.
