Friday Faves 2.0 (Week 1)

My Friday Faves are back and better than ever, even though nothing has really changed from last time. But, I've figured out how to effectively embed more things, so that's working out in my favor. It's a new year and therefore it's also time for a new post graphic to go along with my Friday Faves, be amazed by all of that themed stock photo amazingness. 

Super Bowl Commercial: With the Super Bowl being on Sunday, the amount of new commercials is sky rocketing. My personal favorite is this commercial for Heinz condiments, because, obviously, a commercial with a stampede of dachshunds is the best kind of commercial. If you didn't already guess, I'm the kind of person who just watches the Super Bowl for commercials and the halftime show. (That is, if I'm not watching the Puppy Bowl.)

Pinterest Find: I found this adorable Out of the Sea Ring from Karolina Bik Jewelry. It's a little pricey, at $160, but absolutely stunning. I really like the combination of media and how the color scheme accents the ocean vibe that it gives off due to shaping. This ring is available in basically any size imaginable, which I figure would be helpful if you actually had an accurate idea of your ring size (Which I don't). The website has it tagged as an engagement ring, but I personally think that it would function just as well as a piece of cocktail jewelry.

Food: This is long overdue, but my most recent food obsession is with Tutti Frutti Frozen Yogurt. They have a whole bunch of locations which can be seen at their website here. They have a punch card that's buy ten cups of yogurt and get a free one (I believe up to 12 ounces, but don't quote me on that.) and I'm currently at nine of my ten punches so I'm getting excited. I like to justify this yogurt habit because frozen yogurt apparently has a lot of benefits.

My all time favorite yogurt flavor is the raspberry cheesecake frozen yogurt followed closely by pina colada frozen yogurt (which is a combination of the pineapple and coconut flavors). Because of my food allergies, it's kinda hard for me to get toppings on my yogurt due to the cross-contamination factor being much higher with self-serve foods, but the yogurt itself is to die for. I also recommend getting one of their take home yogurts which are cheaper than buying the same amount of yogurt from the dispenser and they store really well in a freezer. The only down side to the take home yogurts is that they don't have toppings, but luckily for me, I don't use toppings in the first place!
Music: I found this Halsey and Panic! at the Disco mash-up while I was looking for a song off of Panic's new album. (I'm thinking about doing a review on this album coming up soon.) This particular mash-up by Annabel Watt is a combination of Halsey's "Gasoline" and Panic! at the Disco's "Casual Affair". I should probably warn all of you out there with sensitive ears that the song "Gasoline" doesn't necessarily have the cleanest lyrics, take that as you will.

Anyway, I'm super excited because I'm going to go see Panic! at the Disco play a show with Weezer at Summerfest in Milwaukee this year with some of my friends. I haven't gotten the tickets yet, so I'm not quite sure where we're going to be sitting or if we're just going to be doing general admission, but it's still really cool!

I hope you guys put up with me as I begin to throw my favorite things in your faces again. I haven't quite decided how many editions to do for this installment, but I'm thinking that 8 was a pretty good number because it's an even two months and then I'll give you another little break before I decide if Friday Faves 3.0 is a thing or not.

Budget Cuts Update

While the programs that have been cut are still gone, people are still upset about it here on campus. Today after my 2:40 class in the communications building, I was having a conversation with a girl I had a class with last semester and I noticed a poster. Someone had made up these extremely passive-aggressive posters about the program cuts and hung them up around campus. I've only been able to find three different ones, but I'm going to assume there are more in the campus center, which I haven't been to today. I just thought I would share.

Happy Monday everyone and sorry for the influx of personal posts. I'm going to be working on some more coloring pages and have them up hopefully in the near future.
