All of this = Katie gets free frozen yogurt once a week for a year = happiness.

I DID IT!!!!! Crazy, yes, but I did it!


Have you ever waited in line outside for hours for something? This was my first time!


What’s something crazy yet successful you’ve done?

    Ohmygosh……………………….this is my dream come true. Honestly, thinking about getting free froyo for a year actually makes me more excited than when I think about winning the lottery. I know you will enjoy it to it’s fullest 😀 those mini reese’s pieces look good!

      mini reeses pieces are my new favorite topping! Haha and technically I’d rather win the lottery so I can pay back student loans, but this is a pretty close second. And half isn’t taken away in taxes… haha

    That’s awesome! We don’t even have an ice cream place in town. I would die for a yogurt.

    Forever Yogurt is my fave self serve in Chicago. On facebook I saw that they were doing this. I love that you managed to be in the first 50!!

    • April 14, 2012 4:03 pm

      Haha I was so afraid I’d get there at 2:30 like I did and there’d already be a ton of people!

  14. April 14, 2012 11:31 am

    I would totally wait in line like that for yoghurt! Only time I’ve waited like that was for my favourite bands album being released back when I was 16!

  15. April 14, 2012 12:33 pm

    Wow, Katie, that is extremely cool. I have never done anything like that. Know you will be happy you did it every week!!

    • April 14, 2012 4:04 pm

      Exactly, it was cold and uncomfortable but I knew I’d be happy I did it for the rest of the year!

  16. April 14, 2012 12:49 pm

    now that is something definitely worth waiting in line for!!!

  17. April 14, 2012 1:08 pm

  24. April 14, 2012 9:22 pm

    Oh my gosh! Yum. I’m so jealous :o) My fav is coconut. What is yours? Do you always do different variations?

    • April 15, 2012 6:37 am

      My favorite flavor depends on the froyo place and I usually pick whatever I’m in the mood for!

  25. April 15, 2012 4:36 am

    My sister and I once waited for about 3 hours in the freezing cold to try a famous NY pizzeria. To our surprise, it was well worth the wait!

    I also wait for hours to see Glen Hansard the love of my life. That moment was painful yet priceless!
