Favorite Things Friday

Happy FRIDAY!!! 

FINALLY. This weekend we are headed up to Sioux City to hang out with the in-laws, and I'm pretty stoked about it- it should be a good time. Plus, my Huskers will be playing Wisconsin, which should be a pretty good game. Hopefully.

Anyway. Time for my favorite things this week!

1. Smoothies. Specifically ones from Juice Stop. I'm not sure if Juice Stop is a Nebraska thing, but if it is, I will die if we ever move. They have like, 50 different types of smoothies to choose from, each one more delicious than the last.
2. Having a clean car. I used to work at a car wash, and my car was always spotless, inside and out. As it should have been - I did get free car washes and interior cleans (if I cleaned it myself, so really I just had access to all of our stuff). Now that I don't work there, though, our car got a little... messy. Today we had it washed and vacuumed it out, and it feels amazing. I love having a spotless car.

3. Raising Cane's Chicken Fingers. People. If you ever find yourself in Lincoln, NE, come to Raising Cane's. It's the most amazing fried chicken ever. Of all time. It's a little pricey, but oh, so good.  I really wanted some today, so we caved and went, and it was oh, so satisfying. Hit the spot.
4. Book club! I'm getting so pumped! So far we've had about 35 votes, and The Perks of Being a Wallflower is in first place. If that's not the book you want, don't fret! You can still vote.
Also... I want you all to know that you don't have to sign up anywhere to participate - no one should feel obligated - this is just for fun. I have, however, decided to start an email sign up for those of you who are interested in the occasional email with reminders as far as dates for link ups and google video chats. I will not spam your email, and I will never send out anything that doesn't deal specifically with book club. You don't have to sign up to participate - this is just if you want to.
5. Awesome points! For those of you that don't know, I have this little thing called awesome points. I give them out for random, mostly ridiculous things. Once you have 75,000, you cash them in for an awesome package! It's a surprise, and I won't even know what it is till I start putting it together. It's just a fun way for me to reward my readers for being, well.. awesome! It's better than a giveaway, because you don't have to be lucky to win them. It's up to you how many you get.

That being said... let's give away some awesome points, shall we?

All you have to do is guess which blogger is which. Easy peasy, lemon squeezy. This is for 2,000 awesome points. If you get it partially correct, you get partial awesome points. Answers can be found by visiting blogs and looking in the about me section.


Blogger one: This blogger was in a sorority in college. Don't let that fool you, though - she says she's quite the nerd. She loves Harry Potter, Star Wars, and Lord of the Rings. She loves music almost as much as her new husband, and though you wouldn't know it from her picture, she loves making ridiculous faces for the camera.

Blogger two: This blogger likes to bite off more than she can chew, which might make it awkward if you ask her a question while her mouth is full. She, like every other blogger, loves Harry Potter (are we sensing a theme here?) and Pokemon. She has a husband, a blog, and a really cute dog (I should be a poet). She loves to get her DIY on and stalk Pinterest for new ideas.

Blogger three: This blogger is a high school Spanish teacher who loves to travel. She just got an iPhone 5 and is also obsessed with Harry Potter. She probably also thinks she is dying at any given time, because she's a self-diagnosed hypochondriac. You may see her pull a ketchup bottle out of her purse.

Blogger four: This blogger can do one mean rendition of the chicken dance, electric slide, or macarena - whatever it is, she can do it, because she loves dancing. She has probably seen a moose (or ten) and maybe a polar bear. Or Russia. From her backyard. Anyway, she plays the sax (I said sax, not sex), and is really good at that, too. She probably loves Harry Potter, even though it doesn't say that in her "about me" section.

So who's who??? Visit their blogs and guess away! If you like what you read, be sure to visit their other social media so that you can stalk them forever.

Sarah Kate said...

I LOVE smoothies, too! There were shops all over FL, but I guess the craze hasn't caught on as much in Rockvale, TN because I have to make my own smoothies now. Booooo.

My truck gets a bath and a vacuuming once a year. That's it. I really do love my truck and I hate neglecting it like that, but I NEVER think about it unless I'm driving in it and then when I get home, I've already gotten about it. I'm an idiot.

Alana Christine said...

Smoothies are so great! I haven't had one in forever though...

Diana, Down Home Traveler said...

Great blogs. I've had Raising Cane's once (even though we have them in TX, I had it in Louisiana). The sauce was good!

I used to get one once a week on my way to class at UNL :) I'm glad I found you on this blog so I can reconnect with some of my Nebraska ways!

Kelly said...

YUMMY SMOOTHIES. The best... but ya know, I've never liked chicken fingers. Call me crazy, but it's true!

Keetha Broyles said...

I'm scared to death about the WI/Neb game tomorrow.

We're here in IN with Keri and our grans and I'm planning to dress all out and everything while trying to pull my boys through to beat your boys again this year.

However - - - in my heart of hearts I'm real scared nothing I can do will help - - -

Shaylynn... I blahwg It's True. said...

I just really need a book to read that is going to steal my heart..


You should let me know just what book is waiting for me.

Georgina Castellucci said...

1. I wish you'd posted a picture of the actually chicken (I know..I'm obsessed with food lol!)

2. THANK YOU for explaining the book club and how it works. I want to join in but I love that it's so flexible that in the event life gets a bit crazy I don't feel bad about being a "bad" member.

3. Have a wonderful weekend with your in laws! xo
