Favorite Things Friday

Happy Friday! 

YES! It's finally the weekend. This week went by way too slow.

So... time for my Favorite Things Friday. 

1. It's Husker Casual Friday at work today!! I get to wear a Husker shirt! Casual Friday usually just means jeans - no tshirts. NOT TODAY. Today I'm rockin' my Husker gear.

2. Working out. Yes, I'm still going steady. I don't know if it's week three or four. I think it's four. Either way, I'm going about 4 days a week, and it's been glorious. My skin has cleared up and stress has gone down.

3. Trips home to see my parents. We are taking advantage of this long weekend and going home to spend some time with my parental units. I'm so excited. I miss them a lot.

4. Raspberry sherbet. Holy cow. So delicious.

5. Reading. I haven't had any time to read this week, and it's driving me crazy, especially when I was able to read three books last week. Not fair, life - you can't spoil me then take it all away!
The book I'm attempting to read.
Honorable Mention (because I can't do a number 6): These girls. I love and read each of these blogs and think you should, too!
My name is Amanda, and I'm the chica behind Dragonflight Dreams (both blog and shop). I freelance full-time as a graphic designer here in Austin TX, and pursue screenprinting and blogging in my off-time, if there is such a thing. :)  My interests span a pretty wide range, but include: design, photography, screenprinting, cooking, reading, playing piano, movies, game nights with friends, hanging out with my boyfriend and puppy, daydreaming about dragons and flying, learning to sew, fashion (as I see it/like it), and more. Come by and say hi! 
I'm Kristen from Whiskey Tango Foxtrot. I am a stay at home Army wife // Blog designer. I'm married to my high school sweetheart of 8 years and we just moved to Germany this year. It has been a crazy adventure! I'm obsessed with Harry Potter, The Office, and our Puggle, Monster. I hope you'll follow us along on our journey!
Hi, l'm Samara from over at The Secret Life of Samara. You can probably tell from my picture that I am a bit crazy about my rabbit Nibbles. When I started writing my blog I assumed it would just be a collection of all my photos of Nibbles. I have been pleasantly surprised that I actually have more things to write about than just my rabbit (although she does feature a few times here and here). I tend to write a lot about fun stuff I have been doing, things on my mind and what it's like having a 6"8 husband (click the link to see our height difference- you know you want to!). Come over to my blog and say hi, I'd love to meet you :-)

Peppermints & Pixie Dust is a blog about the happenings of my life. Being a junior in college, in a sorority (and living with 59 of my closest friends) and dealings with a kind of large family. I started this blog for my mom, so she could keep up with me while in college and afterward, and along the way I've picked up a few others. 
We are Harley & Jane. {best friends} We met on our way to Austria where we became cultured and fun; it was there that we decided we love all things cute and quirky. Thus, we started our blog to show the world how much better life can be when you add some glitter, a feather, or simply find inspiration in beautiful things every day. Here is our tribute to the loveliness that surrounds us, to share the things that bring us inspiration, and to show you what we decide to do with it.
HI folks, I'm Rosie and Craftbotic is my little corner of the blogosphere where I can hang out, meet new folks, share my life, craft, drink tea and many bloggy projects. If you want to you can come join in with a book club, Blog Angels or my monthly link-up. I'd love it if you would scoot over and introduce yourself. XO
What are your favorite things this week?

Woo! on the working out. I think my skin has gotten a lot better too since I've started running. I feel a lot better too, though I do take longer naps. lol

Sarah Kate said...

I'm so glad you get to spend some time with your parents! How far away do they live?!

BTW - My sister lives in Kansas City and goes up to Lincoln all the time to see friends! I thought about you when she told me that!

RadiantKristen said...

I'm so glad you're still on the working out bandwagon! I always tell myself I have to go, because you're going when I'm not in the mood.

Oh Kansas... I will be headed there 3 weeks from today... just throwing that out there, you know, in case you and Mike decide you need to see them again.

Came over from Ashley's blog. Yay for working out! I'm on week 2 of working out about 5 days a week and I can already tell a difference in the way I feel.

Ashley said...

How have I not read True Believer yet? Is it new?

What did you think about the Best of Me?

Courtney B said...

Dang! Your face clears up when you work out? Lucky! The sweat definitely doesn't help with my stupid zits. (But neither does pregnancy so I really should stop complaining.)
Have a GREAT weekend!

Megan said...
