Friday Treats

Friday, May 04, 2012

When I was small, our dad would sing a song every Friday morning at breakfast:

"Today is Friday and Friday is unique. 
I've been waiting for Friday since the first of the week." 

Over and over and over again ad nauseum. I think he probably still does it. Unfortunately he never quite took off like Rebecca Black's version but it's still a catchy tune.

I'm pretty excited for this weekend for a number of reasons. Pizza tonight with hubby, craft fair and long run tomorrow, and visiting my parents in New Brunswick on Sunday. Plus, tomorrow is Cinco de Mayo and while I'm about as Mexican as Chinese food I will take any excuse to drink a Corona and eat fajitas.

Everybody deserves a treat on Friday so here are a few things to enjoy today:

[+] Fat Mum Slim shared how to make free posters of your Instagram photos on her blog today. I'm super excited about this. If you have a nice set of vacation photos, or, like me, a gazillion baby photos, a poster is a really nice way to collect them all in one place. It's also a good idea for a Mother's Day/Father's Day gift, a keepsake for the grandparents, whatever. Just go to, log in with your Instagram credentials, choose a layout, and choose your pictures. Then download and print away!

[+] Starbucks is running a "frappuccino happy hour" promotion today through May 13. From 3:00 and 5:00 p.m. all frappuccinos are half price. Get in ma belly.

Bored at work today? Now you can frig around on company time, design some posters, print them on your work printer using work ink and work paper, then bugger off to Starbucks for a cheap frappuccino as big as your head. Don't say I don't do anything for you. Happy Friday!

  1. Thats pretty cool about the poster. I might look into that after I come back from Portugal! Also I did hear about the starbucks thing and am pretty excited. I'm trying to eat better but a light caramel frap is under 200 calories!

    1. I considered the light caramel frap but I went for the new one - mocha cookie something or other. It's sooo bad for you. I don't even want to know the nutritional info. It tasted like heaven.
