Fun Friday: Cornhusker Edition

As you read this, I'm on my way to Nebraska, the Cornhusker state, to visit my friend, Pam and GO TANKING. Not sure what it is? I had no freakin' clue either. But Google did:

(Both pics are taken from the Calamus Outfitters Website)

According to my friend, it's a "Nebraska thing." My dad is from Nebraska, but I've never heard of tanking. Apparently, you just float down a river in a giant horse tank, and drink beer and swim all day--two things I excel at :) I certainly can't leave the Midwest without trying it!

Tanking sounds a lot like the "tubing" we rednecks do over in the southeast (e.g. Helen, GA tubing). You can trust that I'll take a lot of pics of this tanking event and post them here on Monday!



I saw this video and had to share. This girl is a DEAD ON impersonator of Celine Dion. If you've ever seen a video of Celine performing, dancing or talking, I think you'll get a giggle out of this one. I love a good DIVA, and Celine is still rockin' hard in Vegas (and looking fab and having twins!)--but it's good to poke fun at diva-ness (and group fitness) once in a while.

Also, not to leave you in a lurch, here are some weekend jams just for you. I'm channeling a little techno-tronic action this week--some hype beats for a hype workout:

1. "Shooting Stars" by Bag Raiders
2. "Teqkilla" by M.I.A ft. Nicki Minaj
3. "Say It's Empathy" by Mochi Beats
4. "Beating Hearts" by Ocelot (Louis La Roche Remix)
5. "Pick Up the Phone" by Dragonette

Hopefully, I won't get too chicken-fried in the NE sun! Have a great weekend, friends!

Q o' The Day: Have you heard of, or been, tanking or tubing? Do you have a funny video or hype song to share? (I heart sharing!) Leave it in the comments!


  1. Hope you have a great trip. Never heard of tanking. Now tubing - we go tubing behind a boat here or tubing down a river (aka floating).

  2. Happy Birthday Richie!
    I prefer the lazy river tubing.
