It's Friday!!!!

Posted by CheapRunnerMichelle

I only have 2 Friday Fav’s to share with you this week…but I am pretty excited about them both!!!

  1. If you can been reading this blog for anytime now…you would know my love for Starbucks Iced Raspberry Passion Tea Lemonade

…just like anything at SB – they are not cheap…AND…definitely NOT low in calories and sugar…but we seem to get “freebies” all the time – so that’s when I tend to enjoy one!...but this week, when I was cruising good ‘ol Google for some new recipes…I came across a “copycat” recipe for this particular drink…here’s the link to it. After checking out the recipe I decided to make a few “tweaks” to it…so that it could be both calorie and sugar free…all I had to do was substitute the “sugar” for a “sweetener” and the store bought lemonade for a “Crystal Light” lemonade…and viola…Mike has PERFECTED the at home SB Iced Passion Tea Lemonade….it is soooo delish…and the best part…I can enjoy as many of these as I want…guilt free…and for about $0.65 for a 24oz drink (compared to the almost $4 at SB)…I’ll take it….literally…the next time Mike wants to go enjoy a special coffee at SB…I’m going to take mine with me Smile

  1. And drumroll please………

Look at what arrived in the mail yesterday….


So back at the VERY beginning of the year…we won a giveaway from Katy at Naneraday. It was a giveaway from Life Fitness. We were super stoked that we had won…and even more excited when we learned that it was not a problem for them to ship it to Canada…well…not over 9 months later we kinda had figured that we were never going to get it…and for the most part had forgotten about it….but I guess the wait was worth it…cause they sent one of everything for BOTH of us…and we received an apology


And scored an extra prize to go along with their letter of apology


I can’t wait to get all these goodies set-up and put to use!

What’s the best prize you have ever won?


  1. You go girl with your free goodies! Happy Friday!

  2. Nice package of fun stuff - especially that Amazon gift card!!!
