Happy Friday! This has been a rough week, with a virus knocking me down for two days. I am finally starting to be able to swallow food again. I did catch up on a lot of sleep though. This weekend I have NO PLANS!!!! Well I do have a haircut planned for Saturday but other than that nothing, nada, ziltch!! It shall be glorious! You know me though I will most likely try to shove 10 pounds of goodness in a 5 pound sack. Like hiking, reading, running, cleaning and purging, and baking. Oh boy! I will be in my PJ’s a lot too though.
So on to my 5 things this week so we get a little closer to this weekend.
One. Since I missed yesterday’s Random Acts of Kindness for the Be The Change post I am sharing a really cool RAOK that includes cupcakes!! An Auckland cupcake sweets company is giving away cupcakes via social media to help brighten someone’s day. They also place them on parking tickets too to help soften the blow. For the full story click here.
Two. This week Morgan from Believe in the Sparks is getting a Virtual Mug. She is going to be a Mrs. in just under two weeks!! She loves her Southern roots and doesn’t take herself too seriously. Willing to tell “Bless Her Heart” jokes! 😉
Three. I just got a Vegetarian cookbook, and I am excited to experiment with some of the recipes. I love Chorizo and Bacon but I am getting bored of Chicken so I want to experiment with adding in some Vegetarian meals. Amanda I will be picking your brain. 😉
Four. Even though this was a really rough week, I always try to find the positive. It has been really hard lately but Seamus helps. His grunting when he wants my food, his jumping in the air trying to “fluff” the blankets always gets me chuckling so it’s no surprise this one gave me a chuckle too.
Five. I am excited to get my haircut since it has been a REALLY long time. Like I haven’t gotten it cut since August 2013. Yikes. My hair really needs it and I can’t wait. This is my inspiration picture though I really am only cutting like 2 inches off or I might cry.
What are you up to this weekend?
I hope you continue to feel better! Happy weekend!
Thank you so much! Have a great weekend!

I would love one of those cupcakes! Also I think that hairstyle would look beautiful on you. I can’t wait to see some of the recipes you do 🙂
It is such a cute concept! My hair needs it bad, feeling so dry. I am excited for some fun veggie recipes to try!
I was just reading through when I saw your so very sweet shout out!! Thank you so much!! Loving the virtual mug!! I hope you have a wonderful weekend!
You are very welcome!! May the countdown begin!!! Have a great weekend!!

It is moving into my nose so I guess it’s progress!! Haha! Cupcakes are so yummy and portion control! 😉
I love that hair picture! I’m also glad you’re feeling better, boo to being sick. At least your no plans weekend should help you recuperate!
Yes, hoping that it will be restful and it will help to get better!
I hope you feel better! I’m not vegetarian but I do like to cook a few vegetarian meals throughout the week. 🙂 Enjoy the weekend!
Thank you! I don’t think i could ever get rid of meat but I want to be able to switch it up too. Hope you have a great weekend!
Happy to hear that you’re on the mend – at least you weren’t sick for the weekend!! Can’t wait to see what you come up with from the cook book!! Have a wonderful weekend!

Kerri @ Simplicity Interrupted says
Having no plans is my faaaavorite. (I think that makes me old). I’m so glad that you are feeling better, and that girls hair is amazing – perfect inspiration 😉
I must be old too then, because those are my favorite. It will be nice to clean up the ends.
Linda Sheridan says
Rest up some more! Lucky you to have such long, lovely hair!!! Enjoy your kind of free weekend. And our furry kids are the best! Love SMD’s momma
I am looking forward to lots of rest. Thank you, I have always loved it long. Hope you have a great weekend!
I’m so glad you’re starting to kick that virus’ ass!!!!!!
My brain in yours to pick, friend! I only wish I could taste test! haha
It is hanging on but I won’t let it keep me inside. Haha! Be on the lookout for mass texts! Hehe!
Your positivity is so inspiring!
Thank you! I try to find the positive even when it’s really hard! Stay happy!
Pippa tries to fluff the blankets too and it cracks me up! Glad you’re feeling better. 🙂
It is so cute and so odd but I love it when they do it! Thank you!!
I am finally on the mend from being sick also. Booo! Hope you feel better!!
Thanks!! It’s moving into my sinus area but I’m not going to let it make me stay inside!! Glad you are feeling better too!!
Happy Friday Kerry! Love the hair inspiration pic! I’m getting my hair done this weekend too!
Thank you! Anything drastic or just a trim?
Kate @ Another Clean Slate says
Love that hairstyle! You’ll have to share a photo once its done!
Of course! It really needs it. Getting so long but my ends are dry.
Krystal @ Krystal's Korner says
It seems like everyone has been sick this week 🙁
My weekend will be filled with house cleaning. I’ve been kind of lazy the past few weeks so it’s time to get rid of the dust everywhere!
It has really been going around! Ugh! House cleaning is the worst but so necessary! Hope you find a few moments for fun!
Glad you are feeling better! Hope you have a great, relaxing weekend and keep recovering!
Thank you! Hope you have a great weekend!
Detroit Duchess says
Glad you are feeling better Kerry! Enjoy your weekend!
Thank you! Hope you have a great weekend too!
Okay, I can’t believe that you can go so long without a haircut!! It’s been 3 months for me, and my ends are looking beyond disgusting. So jealous! Glad you’re feeling better…hope you have a great weekend!
I really shouldn’t have since it is getting bad at the ends. Hope you have a great weekend!
no plans at all this weekend either and it sounds WONDERFUL! you better post a before and after of your haircut!
They are the perfect weekends! You know it! 🙂 Hope you enjoy your relaxing weekend too!
Enjoy your marvelous weekend! I had 5 days off work and it was FANTASTIC! Can’t wait to see your hair!
A five day weekend?! That sounds amazing!
Hope you fell 100% this weekend & I am right there with you about being sick of chicken!
Thanks! It was rough. Chicken is just getting so gross and I don’t eat Turkey so adding vegetarian meals makes sense.

Having no plans is the best. You can design your weekend exactly as you want. I’m so glad you’re feeling better. We are headed into town to see The Book of Mormon this weekend at the Opera House. I’m hoping it’s warm enough to be outside a lot this weekend. It’s finally Spring! Go Sox!
It is fun to not have plans. I have heard great things about that show, hope it is amazing.
Yay for haircuts and feeling better! You get some rest, young lady, so you are back to 100% next week!
It was so needed. I was glad she didn’t take off more. It got really bad this weekend. It moved from my throat to my nose. 🙁
Leeann @ Join the Gossip says
You poor thing! I hope you feel better real soon. I don’t know how you do it – while sick you’re more active than me healthy haha!
Thank you. It was exceptionally lazy! I was hoping for more but it just didn’t happen.
Nichole C says
Glad you’re feeling better…just in time for your awesome weekend of nothing!!
Thank you. I got worse but I got lots of rest.
Heather (@mylittlehea) says
Glad to hear you’re feeling better and your haircut pic on Insta proves it!! I’m so getting tired of all the good stuff I’m eating. I really just want cheese and a sandwich, so I will be doing some meal research again this weekend. I’m still in my PJs too, lol! I do have plans to put on a bathing suit and lay out while I read a little if I can get some blog posts finished for A-Z!!
Girl it got so bad my nose is peeling from blowing it so much. Haha! I would not do well without cheese. So jealous it is warm enough to lay out!!
I hope your weekend relaxation plans are going really well. I saw your super cute cut on Instagram! I’ve always been interested in vegetarian meals, so I’ll be looking forward to seeing if you share anything as you experiment in that area!
Thank you. It was much needed! I am really looking forward to experimenting with some new recipes. I still love Bacon but I will be adding some in to balance it out.
I enjoy vegetarian meals! It’s always nice to change it up. Most of the time, you don’t even know it’s vegetarian! I love that cut, and think it will look great on you.
It is really nice to add in some vegetarian meals. I made some Eggplant Parm that turned out well so I will be sharing that soon. Thank you.
hope you’re feeling better! i have a sinus infection and i’m OVER it! 🙂 love your new hair btw (via IG)
Thank you. It got worse, I am so ready for it to go away. 🙁 Thank you, it was really needed.
Amanda Bumgarner says
Love the hair inspiration. I will never get my hair to curl like that, but I know you can do it. You’ve got the hair for it! And… glad you’re on the mend. Viruses suck. And then after you’re like, “I’m scared to eat anything ever again!” haha… at least that’s how I always am 🙂
Thanks! My hair is naturally wavy so it holds a curly fairly well. It has been a week of horribleness. Hoping it goes away soon my throat and nose are raw.
so excited to see you hair and read your veggie recipes!!! also, feel better 🙂
Thank you. So many fun things coming. Hoping to get rid of this virus soon, its been rough.
