Friday Favorites | January 11, 2019

img_5926Happy Friday y’all! It’s almost the weekend!

Today I’m sharing more of my Friday Favorites, including another must-see show on Prime and the book series I’m currently reading. Of course, I had to throw in something dog-related because honestly our life pretty much revolves around our pup. #nojudging

I hope you’re having a wonderful day, and whatever your plans are this weekend, I hope it’s a fabulous one!

“Victoria” TV show on Masterpiece

I LOVE this show so much! The new season premiers this Sunday, and I cannot wait! We record it on our DVR, but I’m pretty sure the first season is available on Prime if you want to binge watch. I’m convinced everything that Masterpiece produces is fantastic, and “Victoria” is no exception. It’s set in the 1800’s during the early reign of Queen Victoria, when she was a young woman ruling the largest empire in the world. Can you even imagine? The actress who plays Victoria is so likable and does such a fantastic job, the scenes of London, the English countryside and the palaces are beautiful and of course the costumes are stunning. It’s really addicting. Even Dennis loves watching this show with me! I’m so excited it’s finally coming back this weekend because I’ve been having serious withdrawals.

“The Expanse” book series

I just started the fifth book of this seven-book science fiction series about a crew of space explorers and the crazy things they encounter during their adventures. It’s set several centuries in the future, and humanity has colonized the entire solar system.  The writing style is very descriptive and easy to follow, but with enough scientific and technical invention to keep my mind working (which I really enjoy!). My favorite things about this series are the characters and the vivid worlds that the authors have created. Yes, I said authors! These books are actually written by a team of two guys who use the shared pen name James A. Corey. The story lines are interesting, although I feel like the plot in some of the books isn’t fully developed and sometimes it takes a while to get to the action. Still, I’ve really enjoyed reading these books and I would highly recommend it if you’re looking for a good science fiction series.


Krisers Pet Store

The people who work here are seriously the nicest people! This is where we get W.’s all-natural snacks and chews, and her special treats for her birthday and Christmas (or when we just want to spoil her). 🙂 I always feel welcome and comfortable shopping here – it’s so inviting and cozy, and there’s always a pup or two walking around for you to love on. The prices are a little higher than the big-box stores, but it’s worth it to have higher quality items and such a wonderful shopping experience. I can’t emphasize enough how great the employees are too!


Chick-Fil-A app

If you eat at Chick-Fil-A and you aren’t already using this app, go get it now! This has revolutionized how I order food – I think every restaurant should have an app like this. Not only can you order ahead and skip the lines, you can also earn points toward free food through the Chick-Fil-A One rewards program. On top of that, your local Chick-Fil-A operator will send you free offers from time to time. Who doesn’t want a free 8-count nugget every now and then? Seriously, this app is awesome and just another reason why Chick-Fil-A is the best at what they do!

That’s all for today. I hope you’ll give one of these a try! Let me know what you think!

Until next time,
