High Five Freezing Friday

It is colder today in East Lansing than it is in Anchorage, Alaska. It is colder even than Antarctica. It is FREEZING!!! Perfect for catching up on my reading, otherwise known as the Friday High Five.

1. Oscar Night
I'm not sure that I've seen any of the movies nominated for Best Picture this year, but last weekend I finally watched Silver Linings Playbook, which turned out to be a great movie! If you are looking for a nice family movie I highly recommend Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day. Keep an eye out for Steph, the girl at the yoga class--she is from my hometown!

Glitter Guide
If you plan to watch the Oscars Sunday night, there is a fun printable and some great party tips on the Glitter Guide here. Domaine has decorating inspiration from this year's nominated films in this article.

2. Inspiration

Recent research shows that living in awe can help prevent diseases including Alzheimers. If you need some inspiration, how about this guy's story?? Then read more about Detroit here.

3. Coffee Table Styling


I've been looking forward to this one! Twelve amazing design bloggers sharing their cocktail table styling secrets. Check out Mary Ann, Emily, Rene, Carla, Karolyn and the rest via the links.

4. Eating Healthy
Martha Stewart Living

I'm going in for a physical later this morning, which has me thinking about how to live healthier. Martha has a day's worth of healthy recipes here that look pretty and tasty!

5. Saying Grace

I shared my design ideas for our dining room yesterday, and this morning found this article extolling the virtue of saying grace before meals.


  1. I was out last night and could not believe how cold it was - this is getting old real fast!

  2. The Oscar's totally snuck up on me. I'm so excited although there are so many I haven't seen yet. Great links!

  3. Thanks so much for stopping by and giving our Project Design Series a plug on your blog!! Such great tips for an Oscar Nite!!

  4. I didn't even know the Oscars were would think I was from Mars...that recipe from Martha looks so good...good luck with your physical!


Thanks so much for commenting! I love to read what you have to say. ~Carrie
