Friday Favorites

1. So, the first favorite is not a thing, it’s an action.
I tried forever (okay just a few minutes) to find a foursquare icon with that “not allowed” red circle and line across it or a way to superimpose the icon. No luck. I am not tech savvy that way. I’ll just tell you instead.

When I first got my iPhone I downloaded the foursquare app but didn’t open it until just before my San Francisco trip. I was hooked. The idea of earning points, mayorships, badges and other fake stuff really appeals to me. I know. I’m odd. Then when I started school I got a kick out of earning mayorships everywhere on campus, including the school itself.

There’s a whole lot of other stuff that goes along with foursquare that I won’t get into. I realized though that I spent a lot of time with it and trying to figure out new places to get points or to remember to check in. I decided yesterday (when I went nowhere) that I’d had enough. I didn’t need it.

What a sense of freedom. I’m quite thrilled to be done with it.

2. Justin’s Maple Almond Butter

I love this stuff! I’m fairly certain I’ve mentioned it before here but I’m so excited that I get to have it again. Now that I have very little income treats like these will remain treats.

I had a coupon this time so I had to snap it up.

3. Fall + Starbucks’ seasonal lattes

I couldn’t let the official first day of fall (though it did not feel like it) pass without any mention.

I have to admit that I’m not as big a fan of pumpkin as I thought I was. Be that as it may I love the holidays and all of Starbucks’ seasonal drinks. It’s only a matter of time before the red cups are back.

4. Technology

While I may have deleted foursquare I’m still as addicted to technology as I ever was.

I love my iPad, iPhone, iPod and computer. I feel so blessed to own these pieces of technology and blessed with all the ways I can make use of the technology.

For instance, I just discovered an app that makes it fairly easy to read my google documents on the iPad. This way I can read my notes to study and still be mobile.

5. Fall TV

I talked about it Tuesday but I’m so excited for all the new shows, so excited I turned down a coupon for a Blockbuster express rental tonight. (I still have the coupon code.) How could I miss the season premieres of Chuck, CSI:NY, and Blue Bloods?

6. Free race entry

This goes out to Dad. (one of my few readers. 😉 )

I get to run a 5k tomorrow and I didn’t have to pay for it.
Of course, I’m not racing it since I have 3-4 miles to get in before the race and 8-10 after (total 16) but a race is a race. It’s definitely going to count towards my new goal of 40 races by my 27th birthday. 😉

As a side note, I don’t think I’ve ever worn so much pink. It probably won’t happen again.

    I want the rental!!! I’ll watch it!! Also, ditto on the pink

  2. You’ll wear pink again…next year and next year, your Grandmother might be able to join us. Glad your doing it this year. I assume that race bib is from another race, cause I picked up yours today.

    Maple almond butter does sound tasty.
