Friday Five

I am not doing my Friday-Happy-Dance quite yet - too much to do today before it can be the freakin' weekend.  But so close! Here's five, to get us through the day.

A while back, I shared with you the passing of Kevin, a friend of Todd & fellow firefighter.  Kevin's close friend, roommate, and fellow soldier & firefighter, Reed, will be running the Boston Marathon this year in honor of Kevin, and raising funds & awareness for the Military Friends Foundation, who offers financial assistance to eligible families who have faced hardships due to active service in the Massachusetts National Guard or Reserve.  Please consider supporting Reed & honoring Kevin by contributing to this very worthy cause.

Flappy Bird.  Do I need to say anymore?  The eleven year old is officially addicted and I can't get past the fourth pipe.  Oh sure, you look just like Super Mario Bros., Flappy Bird, so you lure me in with promises of childhood fun.  But no ... no.  Also, this.

Today is National Wear Red Day.  Go Red for Women promotes awareness of heart disease in women and encourages action to save lives.  I'm rockin' my red necklace today (Old Navy, in store only. Similar here and here).

I have to share Glennon with you as often as I can.

She reminds me all the time to stop. breathe. be patient. feel. love. be open. put down the stone. tell my own truth (& only my own).

You don't need to be religious to glean a message from Glennon.  I am not, but I do believe that we all have a desire to be good, to do good, to feel good.  I encourage you visit Momastery, today & often ... I promise you, you'll leave filled to the brim. #carryonwarrior

With all of this winter weather lately, I have had cozy spaces on the brain.  We are pretty settled into our house (and I promise to share it with you all soon), but this photo is my family room inspiration.

Warm, neutral, calm, comforting ... everything a room focused on relaxation & rejuvenation should be.  What inspires you when it comes to home decor?

Tell me, what do you have going on this weekend?  Share below or chat with me on Twitter! Happy Friday!

Linking up with DarciLauren, Northeast Bloggers, & Jennie.


  1. Sorry for your loss - it's hard, and I'm sure its hard on your partner as well. I need to play this Flappy Bird this is the first I've heard of this - my son is still addicted to Smash Brothers on his Wii and plays it relentlessly. Love your living room inspiration truly beautiful and relaxing - I think colors inspire me, dark woods with light walls.. dark granite counter tops with light cabinets.. :D Oh when home ownership enters my life it will be sweet. Happy Friday Kerri! -Iva

  2. Sorry for the loss of your friend. :( This weekend is TBD…Jeremy is doing an OR shift, and Stella really wants to go to the mall--which I'm totally fine with!

  3. Flappy Bird is the devil. I can't get passed the first one before I want to throw my phone out the window. Love how you are rocking the red! That living room and blanket is perfection!

  4. The inspiration picture is just so beautiful !!!
