Oh Monday, it’s you again. I thought my weekend would last a little longer. Apparently, I was wrong. Regardless, I think I’ll carry on with my life and pretend that you aren’t the bane of everyone’s existence. Pouring my morning coffee in my favorite mug always gets me going on this dreaded day. Add a little pumpkin spice creamer to my java and I’ll be able to smile a little brighter. I thought about heading to Starbucks before work to use a coupon they sent me. It was something like “buy any holiday drink before 11am and get two bonus stars for gold card members.” Yes, shut up I’m a gold star member and proud of it. Forget the fact that I’ve spent well over $175 in the last year to be a “VIP customer.” It’s easier to forget about this little detail because all it does is remind me that I’m a total fool. I think I’m going to skip using that coupon and save the money for the upcoming Christmas season.
Speaking of Christmas and coffee, I think we all know a coffee addict in some form or another. Why not check Starbucks’ online store of really great gifts. I never bothered to check out their website until I was craving a frappucino the other day. I’m so glad I found it! I have a pretty good idea of what I’m going to get people for Christmas now. I am also finding new ways to restrain myself from buying every cute thing I see. Hopefully by showing you my favorite things I can control my urge today.
