Summertime and the living is easy

Well - so much for that great fall weather - it is back in the 80's today. But I love it. Speaking of hot weather - my friends at Sonic most likely have me on their bad list these days. For some reason - I have shifted my drink preferences. There is a new chick-fil-a across from our Sonic and I have fallen in love..........................

with their lemonade. Have you had it? It's so sweet and good. I keep going there for my drinking enjoyment. It's my new addiction.

And speaking of Chick-fil-a (the Christian chicken) - have you had these babies?
The chicken minis? Oh my word! It's basically their chicken nuggets (like manna from heaven) inside a Sister Schubert roll. Come to momma - they are so good!

And speaking of momma - Laurie has still not had her baby. She went to the doctor this morning and she will be induced on Monday if it doesn't happen before then. I'm hoping for the weekend so it will be easy for me to be there .........but whatever. It's not about me. :-)
My friend Kacy is also extremely close to having her little baby so I'm so excited for two of my close friends to be having babies so close together!

I have not tried those chicken minis--but after seeing this, I hope to very soon! They look great! I like CF, but rarely go there because it isn't very close to our house.

Can't wait for Laurie to have her baby! Very exciting!

Heather said...

We only have one Chick-fil-a, and I've only been there once. I will have to try their lemonade. I love lemonade!!

Mandy said...

Girl...I love Chick-fil-A. I actually had it for lunch today. I have been on a major kick...eating there probably at least 3 times a week!!

I love their tea too!!

Kristin said...

OH!!! I love their lemonade too! I haven't had it in a while because our Chick-fil-A has Diet Dr. Pepper...it's a struggle between the two every time I order. :)

Jennie said...

LOVE the lemonade. It's so addictive.

annalee said...

I can't believe Laurie hasn't had that baby yet! I know she's about to pop!

mer said...

Oh my word...the chicken mini's look TASTY!

I was wondering this morning if your friend Laurie had her baby! I hope it's soon!!!

Robyn Beele said...

I LOVE their lemonade, but I usually get the light kind b\c it is not as sweet. The chicken mini's look yummy! I can't believe Laurie hasn't had her baby! Poor thing!

R said...

their sweet tea is pretty good too. and you can buy BOTH in gallon jugs there!

Meredith said...

I will have to try the lemonade! Sounds great! And those chicken minis too! OH MY!! Tomorrow I'll have to go there! I know Laurie is so ready to have sweet Sarah Kate. I am sure thinking about them a lot!!!

JenWebb702 said...

We do not have a Chick-fil-a here in Vegas and from the way that people rave about it, I don't think it is fair. I am heading back east next week and I am crossing my fingers that they have one there so I can finally try them!!

Marc and Charity said...

oh man, those chicken mini's look so good I'm drooling!!!!!

Jenna said...

Mmmmm, you are so right about that lemonade! How can it BE so good, really?

I have not tried the chicken minis, but after seeing that picture and checking with my stomach, I think we both want to get a hold of them ASAP. :)

Poor Laurie, I am sure she is so ready! Let her know she's being prayed for!!! Have a great night, friend!

Lauren said...

Yum! I love chicken minis too. My husband and I get them a lot on Saturday mornings.

ocean mommy said...

CHICKEN MINIS!!! I was not aware that our favorite fast food place had started selling those!!! Well...there is Friday night's dinner.... :)

Natalie said...

Chick-fil-A is the best! They know me by NAME at the one I go to ~ great supporters of the community too!!

Christy said...

We love Chick-Fil-A. Some weeks I feel we are there everyday - so glad they opened the new one. We sometimes are in the drive-through line wondering why those in the McDonald's line would choose Mickey D's over Chick-Fil-A. I'm also glad they fixed the turn-in so it's not quite such a bump.

Honea Household said...

Chicken Minis are my FAVE!!! Totally! And I love their sweet tea! :)

Leigh Ann said...

I LOVE Chik-fil-a's sweet tea. It is AMAZING. I had it just today!

kathleenjean said...

My husband is obsessed with there lemonade but I can not resist there delicious SWEET TEA!!!

Faith said...

I love that you call them the Christian Chicken! You are a mess!
I do like the minis... they are so yummy! I have gone through withdrawal since I quit drinking caffeine and have not been able to drink their sweet tea or Dr. Pepper! It kills me! I'll have to give the lemondade a try to see if that will do the trick for me. I have resorted to the Hi-C fruit punch...what am I, seven?? Ha!

Adrienne said...

Love, love, love Chick Fil A! Do not try the shakes or you will crave them for the rest of your life!

Katie said...

FUNNY bc I've been craving lemonade lately and cannot get enough of it! I haven't tried chick fil-a's though. And yes....I lOVE the chicken minis!

Katie said...

OH! I love, love, LOVE the lemonade there! It's simply the best EV-ER! And, yeah, the chicken minis are not only adorable, their delish! Who wouldn't want a piece of chicken on a Sister Schubert roll, I'd like to know!

Kelly said...

The lemonade is good, but the sweet tea will change your life! :-) Chicken minis, chased down with sweet tea, now there is a breakfast for champions!

Kim said...

Yay for Chick-fil-A! I could drink their lemonade and sweet tea every day! Can't wait to see pics of the new babies!

Hillary said...

I LOVE LOVE LOVE the chicken minis at The Chick!!!!!!!!!!! In fact, I almost got them this morning!

SAS said...

I love Chic-fil-a! I am cracking up at you calling it the Christian Chicken. I cannot count how many times I would go to the mall on Sunday's in college and look forward to Cic-fil-a only to forget it was Sunday and they aren't open!!!

The Proctors said...

Yum! I definitely need to try those Chicken mini's! I love me some Sister Schubert rolls!! Thank you for letting us know! I'm loving this warm weather too!

Blanca said...

Chicken Minis ROCK! Have you notice they put some sort of glaze on the biscuit that makes it even better. Wonder what it is? If you like sweet tea you should try it there too. It's pretty darn good.

LOVE Chic-fil-a!

Blanca

pinkmommy said...

Oh my word, those chicken minis are devine. I love them dipped in honey mustard.

Sunshine said...

I love, love, LOVE their lemonade!! It is so good and always tastes so fresh! I could only with their was a Chick-fil-a close by! It's probably a good thing that they're not : ) I'd be there way too much! But I will have to try those chicken mini's! Those look GOOD!!

"J" said...

I've never tried their lemonade because I just can't live without their sweet tea! For real...it's the BEST ever! I love those little chicken minis try them with honey! YUM-ERS! The best!

Julia said...

Yes and Yes...I love more than anything in the world a good Chick-Fil-A sandwich with that sugar-free Lemonade!!!
YUM-O now I may have to have that for lunch!

Laura said...

I like their chicken salad sandwiches, too! My mom had them packed away in our "picnic basket" when we left the church after we got married thirteen years ago!! Yum!!
