Starbucks Tumblers Feed

Cold again, yes!

It was cold again on today's walk.  Luckily, the wind wasn't as bad as yesterday and I was able to walk without totally freezing.  I know it's only going to get worse. No more day of taking my jacket off and walking in a t-shirt for a while!  Oh well.  I went to the grocery store tonight and picked up a few things I needed.  I got a bag of Starbucks coffee that was on sale.  I got Pike Place roast.  If course I made myself a cup and it was delicious.  I used to always get Pike Place roast at Starbucks before I discovered the joys of lattes. :p

Speaking of Starbucks, it was double star day today so I want to go over there if I could.  My car did okay going to the grocery store, so I chanced it and went to Starbucks.  It did okay.  I got a cascara latte and an ornament.  They were 30% off as all the Holiday things were.  I found out after I ordered that they were out of almond milk, so they made my latte with something else.  I say soy, but I'm pretty sure it was with coconut milk.  That was the grossest thing I've ever gotten at Starbucks!  I drank it, but I didn't like it.  I know they would have fixed it, but I didn't want to bother them.  They were already busy, busy and it took a loooong time for me to get my drink.  Oh well.  At least I went and got the ornament I wanted and double stars!  The ornament is a mini version of the VA ceramic tumbler that I want.  Here you go:

I so want the actual tumbler, but it's $22.95! Yikes!  Maybe next month or sometime next year.  At least I have the ornament. This will make my collection of Starbucks ornaments go to three. :p  Yeah, I don't have as many of them as my other Starbucks stuff.  I should totally do a blog dedicated just to my Starbucks stuff!


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. ^_^


Saying goodbye...

Tonight I went to my local Kmart to pick up my prescriptions for the last time.  The pharmacy is closing on the 14th of this month.  I'm not happy about that. The store is closing after the beginning of the year.  The pharmacy is going to be closed a lot sooner.  I will miss them.  The people at this location were all really nice.  I liked going there.  I will have to get used to another pharmacy and I don't really want to have to do that.  They are sending all their files over to the CVS that is near them.  I asked them to send mine to the CVS that is closer to my house. It's an easy walk to get there, so even if I'm having car issues, I can go and pick up my prescriptions.  

After leaving Kmart, I was going to Starbucks but then I just ended up coming home.  I might go later this week.  I'm sort of waiting for a double star day.  I might get that tumbler if they still have it, but I want to wait until they are doing the double star day!  That will give a me a lot of stars. ^_^


Well hell!

I needed to go to Family Dollar tonight to get a bag of popcorn. I air pop some and put it in a Tupperware container and eat on it for several days.  I just make fresh when that is gone.  Well, I meant to go to Family Dollar and just get popcorn and perhaps some hair ties.  I ended up getting ten dollars worth of stuff!  Sheesh!  I got two shirt boxes for gifts, a set of three gift bags, a roll of snowman wrapping paper, a set of gift labels, a cute little metal tin, and a bag of Cheez Doodles! LOL  Shame on me! :p

I did walk today and get my workouts done.  I have my bed linen in the dryer. It's ready to go back on the bed, but I keep forgetting to go in there and get it!  I did get my hair washed and dried.  I planned to put the linens on after that, but I did my French lesson and then decided to post to my blog.  I was tempted to run over to Starbucks while I was out going to Family Dollar today, but I decided to just come back home. I'm sure I'll go one day this week.  The last time I was in there, there was another tumbler that I liked.  Like I need another tumbler! LOL!  It's a cute one, though!

 


Stuck!

Yeah, I'm in the process of my daily NaNo writing and I'm stuck at the moment.  I am not sure where to go with what I have at the moment.  I figured I would take a break from it and go back to it after a bit.  I'm not sure how to go about what is coming next.  A major thing just happened and now I have to work on the aftermath. HELP!!!!!!! lol  I'll figure it out.  I am going to take some laundry out of the dryer and put my bed linen in and then come back to it.  I thought I'd do my blog post before doing that.  I just wanted to get away from it for a bit.  I only have 1500 words so far today. I really want to get many more.  I'm pretty sure this will make me pass the 10,000 mark, but I want to do more!

I walked earlier today.  It was overcast again but it didn't rain.  Yay!  I came home and did my workouts.  I had lunch and then drove to the post office.  I had three new letters.  I mailed off several pen pal letters earlier today while walking.  I'm actually caught up for the moment.  I was so behind.  I sat down last night and wrote letters until I had them all done.  I plan to write one day a week to keep my letters caught up.  I might even go to Starbucks to do it. :P

Speaking of Starbucks!  I went to Office Max to get some plastic business card holder sheets.  I use these to keep my Starbucks cards in.  I found  package of 25 for 6.99 so I bought them. I was happy because I was figuring I would get like ten and they'd be ten dollars. lol  

The Office Max is really close to Starbucks, and I just happened to have one of my Starbucks tumblers with me, so I went and got a cascara latte and brought it home to drink while doing NaNo. :D  I also was able to get a new card that I didn't have.  I put all my cards into the sleeves and put them in the binder.  I had been using some trading card sheets, but the card kept falling out of those.  These are much better.  I love that the pack had 25.  That is enough for 250 cards!  I have plenty for more.

I am not too messed up from the time change last night.  It affects me more in the Spring that in does in the Fall.  I am going to get my laundry taken care of and while I do that, I'll be plotting where to go with my novel.  I've gotten to the part I was looking forward to writing and I'm not sure where to go! 


Starbucks again?!

Yeah, well... I went to Starbucks tonight and looked at the reusable cups and tumblers. They had all of their Anniversary stock on sale.  I bought this beauty.  It was 30% off and I love it!

Isn't it pretty?  It's blue which is my favorite color.  It's only 10 oz, so I won't be using it at Starbucks, but I can use it at home.  It's so pretty!  And yes, I got a latte while there. :p

 


National Coffee Day!

Yes, it's my day! :P  I have already had two delicious cups of coffee at home and then I went to Starbucks!  I decided to try the new Maple Pecan Latte.  It is GOOD.  It's not overly sweet which I like, but it's sweet enough.  I like it.  It's got some good flavor to it.  I still like my Cascara latte the best, but this is a nice seasonal drink.  I'd definitely order it again.  I wanted to get all of the fall cups to add to my Starbucks collection, but they were out of the venti ones. That was the one I wanted the most, too! :(  I got the tall and grande though.  They also had the Halloween gift cards, YAY!  I got one, I want to get a few more if I can.  I was so happy to see them. I just need to find a venti fall cup and I"ll be happy! ^__^
