Starbucks gift cards Feed

Another long day! :p

I was tempted to not walk today, but I did it anyway!  I was so tired when I got home.  I didn't sleep well last night and it was really hard on me during my walk.  I felt so tired and it felt like it took forever to get home!  I finally did, and then I sat and relaxed for a bit.  I didn't do my workouts at the regular time as I was so tired.

I ran over to Target and returned my wallet.  I did a few more errands while I was out and then came home.  I took a hot bath to soak away some of my soreness!  I finally did my workouts and then I did my French lesson.

My Sakura card came today.  It's so pretty! It even came with a gift card sleeve.  It's very nice.  



Wednesday is Starbucks time.

Well, it was double star day today so, of course, I went to Starbucks. I'm all about those extra stars! :p  I went to the drive thru since I was over there later than usual.  I looked in as I drove by the front and there were plenty of seats. ~_~; Figures!  If I had gone to stay, I wouldn't have found a seat.  Oh well, I got my latte and it was pretty good.  I tried the blonde caramel latte.  It was pretty good, but nothing is as good as my cascara latte. :(  I miss that stuff.  Starbucks, if you are listening, BRING IT BACK!!!!!!!!!!  

In other news, I walked today.  It was a bit overcast when I started, but the sun came out.  It's a good thing too.  I forgot my umbrella!  It rained during yesterday's walk and I went out with a friend yesterday evening, so I had my umbrella drying.  I forgot to put it in my backpack.  I was so happy when it didn't rain! :p

I did my workouts yesterday and today, I have been on schedule for everything.  A few days ago, I ordered the matching wallet to my new purse.  I can't wait to get it.  I've never had a  purse with a matching wallet.  I'll be so fancy. lol  I also ordered a Japanese Starbucks card yesterday on ebay.  It's a Sakara card and it's gorgeous!  I can't wait to get it.  Something cool to add to my collection. ^_^  I've always wanted some Sakura related from Starbucks so this was a no brainer.  I, of course, will share pictures when I get it.

Sorry about that post yesterday.  I was tired, frustrated, and just plain grumpy! It was just not a good idea to post to my blog when I was in that mood.  The rain yesterday was just depressing.  My friend wanted to go to one of our favorite local restaurants, so we did.  After I got home, I called another friend and she asked if I'd ride with her somewhere.  I did.  Her mom was in a car wreck yesterday.  Her truck is totaled.  They had to cut her out of it!  She is walking around today!  Amazing.  The woman is almost 70!  

I've been playing Pocket Camp.  I need TWO more of the navy ladybugs to get the Spring background.  Since I have until Saturday, I should be able to get it.  I just got the flower swing today.  There is one more thing to earn after the background, but if I get that, I'll be happy!  They also introduced new animals today! :)  The game is so fun.  Goldie is and always will be my favorite!

Starbucks and shoes?

Yes, that is what this post is about!  First of all, I wore my new shoes today.  My foot is still hurting, but not as much as it has been.  I think the shoes are going to help.  They are Saucony Cohesion 11.  I have had Saucony shoes before and I really like them.  These are in Fog Blue color and they are gorgeous.  Here is a stock photo:


I love blue. My friend was nice enough to get these for me and I will pay him back soon.  They are comfy and pretty!


Now, on to the Starbucks part of this post.  I got the item that I mentioned earlier this month.  It's a card and case from China!  It came today all the way from Beijing China.  I did a little collage of it.  It's so cool!  It has the card, the case, a little notepad, and a little booklet about the Gold program in Chinese. :D


I love it! The case has the siren tail embossed on it and Starbucks embossed on it. I am in love. ^__^  After walking and doing my workouts, I spend some time outside. It's warm and nice today.  I then went to Starbucks and treated myself to a free venti cascara latte.  I had three free drinks on my card. :p  I have two now! :D

What a day!

So, I woke up today to warm weather!  The high today was 72!  It was really nice.  The sun even came out for a bit.  It's been so cloudy and overcast for so long.  It was nice to see the sun.  I got in a nice walk and came home and relaxed a bit before doing my workouts.  I got those done and then did my French lesson and had a few minutes to relax before fixing lunch.  After lunch, I was just hanging out and then I thought about going to Starbucks.  I wanted to go, but I didn't want to get there and not have a place to sit.  I decided that I'd go and if there was nowhere to sit, I'd get a drink and bring it home with me.

I got there and one of the little tables was free!!!!  I put my messenger bag down to hold that table and went to get in line.  I got my cascara latte, a venti!  I also got two new gift cards that I didn't have.  They were just putting them out! I had my pen pal letters with me.  I wrote to all my pen pals and drank my latte.  While I was writing, I noticed that the couple that has the Corgi.  I had to go see him.  I got lots of Corgi kisses!!!!!! He is such a sweet pup.  The pair are regulars like myself.  I was telling her about this being my fourth time coming and trying to get a place to sit.  She said they'd been having the same issues.  I really wish the place was bigger.  We both miss the old location.

I stayed at Starbucks after I finished my letters for a bit and then headed out.  I went by the post office to check my box.  I couldn't mail my letters as I didn't take any envelopes or stamps with me.  I'll mail them on tomorrow's walk.  I only had one letter at my box.  I'm totally caught up except for the new one that just came.  I have the names of two potential pals and I'm going to write a couple of  small intro letters to sent to them with my 'new pal' letter.  I'll do that and then I'll read and play more Pocket Camp.  I'm watching the Olympics again.  More Skeleton tonight.  This stuff is nuts!  The male figure skaters are on tonight too.  

New Starbucks cards

I received the three Starbucks cards I ordered on ebay today!  These are so cool! One is from Mexico, one is from France, and one is made of recycled coffee bean bags.  I love them all!  I took a picture to share:


The order in the picture is: Mexico, recycled, France.  I love them all!  I didn't have any of these designs so that made it even better.  I love collecting these.  I now have three country cards.  I want more! ^___^

Well then.....

I changed things around AGAIN on the blog.  I have a new background and have changed things around to match.  I think I like it?  I got rid of the banner.  I didn't really like it.  I might create a better one in the future.  For now, I guess I'll leave the layout as it is.  Of course, after I post this, I'm going to look through my background archive and see if I like anything better. LOL

I walked today and got in my workouts.  I got some money on my paypal account, so I went to Ebay.  I found a seller that had a lot of cool Starbucks cards so I bought three from him.  They were all $2 each with free shipping.  One is one from Mexico. Yay! I have a Canada card, but none from any other countries yet.  I also got one from France. ^__^  The last one is a cool one made from recycled coffee bags. I am happy with all three and can't wait to get them.  Of course I'll do a post on them when they get here. I will now have a Canada card, a France card, and a Mexico card.  ^________^


So, I changed the background of the blog and I changed the banner a bit.  I love it!  I did not forget to post yesterday.  When I came to do it, Typepad was having issues.  You could see the blogs, but you couldn't log into accounts.  It wasn't fixed before I went to bed so I wasn't able to post  

I walked today and it tried to sprinkle on me a little bit towards the end, but it didn't do too much.  I only had to use the umbrella for a few minutes.  My prescription was ready and I could have picked it up on my walk, but I didn't know until I got home!  I ent a bit ago and picked it up.  It's so weird getting used to a new pharmacy.  They have a drive thru at this one, but it was pretty full so I went in.  Inside was full too!  It probably would have been less people earlier in the day.  I'll try to remember that next time!

Since I had to go out and wait forever at the pharmacy, I decided that I could use some Starbucks therapy. :p  I went to Starbucks and got a cascara latte.  I went in because I wanted to see if they had the new Valentine's cards out.  They did! I got one of each of the six they have for Valentine's day this year.  Five are heart shaped with different phrases and one is a regular card with Happy Valentine's day on it.  I was happy to get them all.  

When I got home from my walk, I intended to do my workouts, but I got distracted by something else and didn't do them.  I will do them, it will just be later on this evening.  That way I can take my time and not have to worry about getting done before lunch.  

I'm loving the new look of the blog.  I think it's pretty. What do you think?

Sunday Starbucks

I got in my walk today. It's still very cold here. It hasn't gotten above freezing in over a week!  Hopefully it will warm up soon.  I came home and relaxed a bit before doing my workouts.  I had lunch and then did a few things around here.  I decided that I wanted to go to Starbucks and write pen pal letters.  That is exactly what I did!  I went over and wrote out all my letters.  My poor hand was so sore!  I still need to get them in envelopes and stamped, but they are written.  

I got a Cascara latte while they still have the cascara syrup.  I'm going to be so sad when it's gone.  I'll have to figure out what I want to take it's place.  They are supposed to be introducing a new drink on the 9th.  I wonder what it will be?  Maybe it will be my new favorite! We'll see. I was able to get a new gift card tonight.  They had the new Year of the Dog cards and I picked up a few for my collection. ^_^

I have my bed linen in the dryer and it should be ready to put back on the bed.  I only have to wash my hair and my total to do list is done for today.  I took lots of pictures of my bujo at Starbucks.  Their lighting is so much better than mine!  I took pictures of my two weeklies, and some of my trackers.  It looks good!  I wish I had lighting like that at home.


Happy day.... maybe, maybe not!

I walked today and it was ridiculously COLD.  I was thinking OMG what the hell was I thinking for most of it! It was so damn cold.  I was so happy when I got here.  I sat down, drank some coffee, and tried to get warmed up.  I dressed in a few more layers and went to my friend's house for dinner.  I had turkey, ham, green beans, corn pudding, potatoes, and mac and cheese.  They gave me my gifts.  I got a cute wallet, a gift card to the grocery store and a gift card for Starbucks! :D  Good thing too, I was down to less than a dollar on mine. :p  Yes, I have two free drinks on there, but I had no funds. 

I haven't done my workouts yet and as of now, I'm not sure I'm going to.  I don't like skipping them, but I've been on the go all day and I'm really tired and need a break.  I'm currently sitting with my laptop under my tree typing this up.  I need to eat something in a bit.  All that food I had was several hours ago.  I also had a nice cup of coffee while up there. :p  After we ate and sat around for awhile, we went to the park for the light display.  They have lights set up throughout the park every year and the proceeds go to a different charity each night.  It's $7 a vehicle.  We went through and it was pretty cool.  This is my third or fourth year of going through.  I like it. I didn't think I was going to make it this year and I'm glad I did!

After that, we rode down Riverside Drive and looked at all the closed businesses.  Tradition!  Then we headed up main street and looked at the nice houses decorated there on our way home.  They dropped me off at home so I didn't have to walk home in the cold.  I grabbed my laptop and came in here to type up my blog entry.  I am happy with my gifts.  The wallet is cute and I can surely use the gift cards!  $25 for groceries and $25 for Starbucks! YAY!

Sunday Starbucks

Ah Sunday, a day I sometimes like to go to Starbucks.  Well, I went today!  I didn't stay, but I went and got the tumbler I've been wanting.  They were 25% off! Yay!  I got it and a cascara latte.  I then came home.  My car didn't do too badly going over there and coming back.  I was glad of that.  I had a weird walk today and felt I needed a treat!

First, some random person beeps at me and tries to give me a ride in his vehicle.  NO Not going to happen, dude.  Then, another guys asks me for money!  He looked better dressed than I was!  After him, I got the most special one.  He was acting strange as I was walking towards him. When I got closer, he moved over to the other side of the sidewalk and was talking (I guess to himself, I had earbuds in so I'm not sure.)  He goes over and picks up enough snow to make a snowball all while talking.  I was just waiting for him to throw it at me.  Luckily for him, he didn't!  I kept walking and finally got home away from the crazies!  

I did my workouts and relaxed a while.  I really wanted to go to Starbucks and get a latte and I wanted to look at the tumblers again.  They were 25% off so I got my tumbler.  It's a grande size and whie with colorful & symbols all over it.  I like it!  It's definitely different.  Grande is my usual go to size, so most of my tumblers are grande size.  Here it is:


I really like it.  Did I need another tumbler? No, but I got it anyway. :p  I also picked up a few of the Christmas tree shaped gift cards to add to my collection. ^_^
