Deal: FREE fry day Friday March 4th

Monday, February 28th, 2011

Anyone who knows anything about me knows I la la Love me some Chick Fil A. The yummy waffle fries and delicious nuggets have me at “it’s my pleasure”. It’s a major weakness, but having friends (and hubby) with this addition also, makes for a fun lunch any day of the week.

They are offering FREE FRIES between 2pm+4pm Friday, no purchase necessary just say your there to try the new ‘Heninz Dip &  Squeeze’, see details HERE.

Tips for saving at Chick Fil A:

No.1 Order the 6 piece kids meal instead of an adult meal, it’s around $4 (prices differ slightly with location), and instead of getting the toy, upgrade to a medium drink at no extra cost. Most locations are more than happy to do this with a smile!

No.2 Always look at your receipt, there’s frequently a survey option on there. Go online fill out quick survey, and get code. The code is redeemable for any sandwich or a 4 piece kids me (I ususlly pay a little extra and upgrade to 6 piece).

No.3 Ask if they have frequent diner cards, many locations have their own variations of this.

No.4Ask if there’s a kids night. The Sandy Utah location has one every Wednesday night, they give a free kids meal with every adult meal, plus there’s usually a free activity for kids, like face painting or a puzzle or something of that nature.

Chick Fil A is one of those companies who just has it together, they make their customers very happy, but be careful…you might get hooked!

Minted just released their 2011 wedding collection and I’m kinda loving it.  Invitations seem to have been reinvented the past couple of years, with a much bigger variety to choose from; the couple can really use this opportunity to let their individual style shine. I’m loving the look of white text, it really adds a wow factor and a touch of modern in a classical setting. Take a peek:

Decor: Nautical Bathroom

I have been eyeing so much navy blue and white at the shops lately, like the white and blue collection at Target.  It makes me crave the salty ocean so much!  Hopefully next month we’ll get to the ocean for Spring Break, but for now I am thinking of bringing some nautical into my bathroom.  That’s right, I’m thinking color!  Only navy blue though…nothing too crazy!!

Some things I’ve seen recently that I am considering for the bathroom:

This little light from the Home Depot:

Hampton Bay Light $4.97

This doormat from the World Market would be cute as a bathmat:

Braided mat $14.99

I saw these luxurious, ridiculously expensive towels at Anthropologie.

The Navy blue color is beautiful and about half off in stores right now!

Perpetual Bloom Bath Towel in Navy $19.99

I could use this Target shower curtain we received as a wedding present:

White Waffle Shower Curtain $26.99

I saw some lanterns at Home Goods on clearance for $9 that looked like these ones from Restoration Hardware:

Pretty Lanterns

It would be perfect to find an inexpensive stripy blue rug somewhere, like this one from Amazon:

(Has anyone seen one anywhere?)

Nautical Rug

I could keep the chrome clocks and the picnic baskets that I posted about to add to the nautical feel..

I know what I’m going to be dreaming of tonight!

These Boots are Made for Walking…

Tuesday, February 22nd, 2011

There’s a long list of  things that scream “British”, and the Hunter wellies are ranked high on that list. They’ve famously been worn by: soldiers, farmers, royalty, and supermodels. They truly are the boot for anyone and everyone.

Naturally, my sistas and I were each given a pair a Christmas or two ago from our mum. Helen’s are black, mine are navy blue, and Emily’s are hunter green. Usually retailing at over $100, two of the three pairs were found at a discount store for $25…can I hear a whoot  whoot?!

Hels Bells, we missed you this weekend…we need a pic with all three of us sporting these beauties!

I’m not kidding when I say these boots make me feel like Superwoman; as soon as I slip into these babies I feel invincible; hell or high water can’t get in my way!

Happy Presidents Day!

Monday, February 21st, 2011

While studying at BYU somebody asked me what non-major class I enjoyed the most while earning my degree. My answer was surprising even to myself: American Heritage. Being a proud and very patriotic Brit, I wouldn’t have suspected that I’d love  American history so much, but the more I learned about the founding fathers (in particular, George Washington), and the miracle of how this country began, the more fascinated and engaged I became.

Over the past couple of years Brock and I have been able to visit a couple of historical sites on the East Coast. Here I am at Independence Hall soaking up the history and loving it!

If you guys haven’t seen the HBO series John Adams yet, I highly recommend it. It’s very well done, and takes you on a fantastic journey of another great president.

I hope you guys had a great Presidents Day, and hopefully time off to enjoy it!
