day 8, 30 days of thanks continues.....

I am so glad that so many of you are enjoying the 30days of thanks! and i'm enjoying all of you who are also participating! it really is fun to read the different things we are thankful for, be it strong and powerful like FAITH or daydreaming like me about a house that i would love to buy. again it just shows me how unique and different people are and that is what makes it interesting. how boring would it be if we all discussed the same things?
So today i am thankful Starbuck's holiday drinks! it is the only time i the year that i go to Starbuck's as i find their coffee to be very strong and i just can't drink it. In Oct. i start inquiring about when to expect the holiday drinks to begin. so this year i was told Nov. 8th and i put it on the calendar. This morning i got to sleep in and then when i got up, i showered and headed over to Starbuck's to order my drink! i ordered a vente 1/2 caf extra hot egg nog latte! and i picked one up for my husband too. ususally he will stop by and pick up a starbuck's card for me that he loads with some $ so that i can pop in whenever i want! i try to go everyday during the season and savor every moment. i can remember the first time i had an eggnog latte. we were living in Kirkland, Wa (a suburb outside of Seattle) and my husband and i were out and stopped at a kiosk of Starbuck's and i saw the drink being advertised. so i ordered one (being such an eggnog addict) and that was that!
so if you haven't tried one, you must! if you don't like eggnog, you can try peppermint or gingerbread.
here's a toast of my eggnog latte to my friend, Kim, who also LOVES Starbucks and their holiday drinks!


  1. Well, I just wrote it down......."vente 1/2 caf extra hot egg not latte" and when I'm in Kerrville next, I'm going to Starbucks and I'm going to order one!
    First, though, I'm going to ask them what a "vente" is and make sure latte is something I would like.
    Then I'll order it!
    What a great blessing for you every day this season....every morning when I'm drinking my *boring* Folgers, I'll drink a toast to you, jja!

  2. You have inspired me to count my blessings this Thanksgiving month. I have posted my first "I'm thankful for" entry on my blog at It feels good to acknowledge the good things in our life and focus on the positive. I hope it's a habit I am able to continue through out the year. Thanks for being such a great source of encouragement.

  3. I can't wait till tomorrow to order an eggnog latte...they just opened a starbucks by my office!! Woohoo!!! I had the Pumkin latte and it was not my fav, but I love eggnog...having one in the a.m. first chance I get!!!-Sandra

  4. Met up with a friend today and off we headed to SBs :) I too enjoy their holiday drinks and ordered a grande nonfat nonwhip peppermint mocha with double peppermint. Whoot ! Talk about a minty-fresh taste ! It was, errrr, welll, just a leetle on the really sweet side, so next time I'll get the one splash of pepp. ( 2 splashes gave me a small headache, I guess I'm peppy enough ? --groan ).
    Have a noggy for me, I'll think of you on my next SB visit :)
