Fun Findings Friday #151

Hooray for Friday! While it’s not a long weekend for me, there’s still quite a bit on my to-do list that I’m hoping to make a dent in! Also, Ted and I are planning to watch The Martian (it’s my goal to get through all of the Oscar-nominated films in advance so I can select my predictions fairly), and my sisters will be staying over (it’s long overdue), which will be a blast!

The 52 Lists Project Journal

As a blogger, it’s in my DNA to love writing, and list making. This 52-week journal ($14) is the latest on my radar, to let the creativity flow. Each week there’s a new prompt for list-making, which is supposed to help inspire. I love this idea and think that from a blogging perspective, it’ll inspire a lot of different types of posts, which is always great to have (especially on days you’re running low on post ideas). Can’t wait to get my hands on this!

Clearwater Uncorked Food & Wine Festival

I love food and I love wine. So I’m excited about the Clearwater Uncorked Food & Wine Festival taking place in a few weeks (Feb. 6-7) in the Tampa area! With over 100 different wines, local brews, and tasty bites (plus some cooking demonstrations), it sounds like it’s going to be a fab two-day event. Plus, in honor of their 5th anniversary, they’re having a “Blogger of the Year” contest for several categories. I’m up for Best Luxury Lifestyle blog, wish me luck! Note that no one under 21 will be admitted to the event, so if you have kiddies, plan accordingly!

James Corden + Adele Car Karaoke

It’s no secret that James Cordens’ karaoke segments are my absolute favorite. But his latest one with Adele? I’m pretty sure this one is my favorite EVER. The combo of these two Brits is the best, and filled with plenty of laughs!

  • I love the Clearwater Uncorked Food & Wine Festival! When we lived in Tampa we went to that and yum! so good! Have a great time and please be sure to blog about it. I miss the Tampa area festivals. :(

    • That’s so great to hear! This will be my first year going! I wish you were still in the area! You can always come back to visit for them :)

  • That Food & Wine Festival sounds like so much fun! I’ve never been to one of those, but they always sound like so much fun! I hope that you win your category for Best Luxury Lifestyle Blog!

    • Thanks, Ashley! These types of festivals seem to be popping up a lot more lately. Hopefully you’ll have one in your area to get to soon!

    I really enjoyed The Martian was such a good film.
    I couldn’t stop watching Adele in the car pool karaoke video, she has such a good voice and is so down to earth.

    • Good to know – I can’t wait to watch it! And so agree. Adele is amazing and James Corden cracks me up! Who knew he had a decent singing voice?!

  • I must get that 52 lists journal! I love lists! and that food and wine festival sounds like so much fun! Good luck in your blogging category!

    • Thanks, Jenn! List making is seriously the best! I hope you love the journal!

  • I’m curious about the 52 weeks journal. After you’ve gone a few weeks through the process I may need to pick your brain on what you think. Ahh Adele. Gets drunk buys people dinner and concert tickets. I want to be her friend.

    • I’m hoping it’s a good one! It should get to me this week! I so want to be friends with Adele too! If only I were at that restaurant. I tried to get tickets for her concert but had no luck, despite trying multiple cities :(

  • I’m so intrigued by this book! I’ve never heard of it before but I’m allll about some list making so it’s probably right up my alley! Hope you had a good weekend :)

    • List making is the best! It’s filled with lists you’d never think to make either!

    What a great post/series idea! How funny was that Adele video?! I laughed so hard!!

    • Thank you! Adele is seriously the best. How fun would it have been to be hanging in the backseat of the car with them?!

  • I forgot that food and wine festival is coming up it is one of my favorites!

    • This will be my first year going! I’m so excited about it – nothing beats the combo of food and wine!

  • I think Adele’s video made everyone happy

    • Absolutely! She just seems like the person you’d wanna be best friends with!

  • I didn’t think I could like Adele more until I saw that video- so awesome!

    <3 Have Ashley, Will Travel

    • Right! She’s so awesome. Wish her concert tickets didn’t disappear so quickly :(

  • Love the James Corden and Adele video! So hilarious. I’ve heard really great things about the 52 lists book as well.

    • I think it’s the best clip of James Corden’s series so far!

  • I am a little late, but I hope you had a nice weekend! I really want that 52 lists book! That seems like something right up my alley.

    • It’s really neat! List making is so much fun and plus, these prompts are a lot of things you’d never really think to make lists of!
