Happy #BlueFridays to you.

Happy Blue Friday!!!


Okay, I totally stole this idea from Alecia over at SurfaceFine, who posted a photo of her blue boots.

It’s Friday, and for me and for everyone living with diabetes, I’m wearing blue today. Back in 2010, Cherise Shockley of Diabetes Community Advocacy Foundation and DSMA Twitter Chat fame decided to ask everyone to wear blue on Friday to show support for people living with and affected by the big D. The idea caught on, and three years later, it’s still going strong. A giant blue wave, if you will. I was a little late to the party, but now I’m one of a zillion people out there sporting the blue and raising awareness. To find out more, click on the photo above to go to the Blue Fridays page at Diabetes Social Media Advocacy, or visit the Blue Fridays page on Facebook.

The Great Spousal Unit bought me these retro sneakers for Christmas last year. When she asked me what color I liked, you better believe I said blue right away.

Is it wrong to look at something in blue and wonder how you’d look wearing it on a Friday? I think not. #MakesSenseIfYouHaveDiabetes

Enjoy your weekend!
