How starbucks has taken over my life...

You may remember these bad boys from last week. Keith and I did a little quality control to ensure that they were, uh, still good last week but only had one each.

Self-control - it's a good thing.

But there are many other ways that starbucks has infiltrated my daily life...
  • the abundance of tazo teas in my kitchen
  • the coffee brewed daily in my office
  • the giant mug I drink it from
  • the reloadable cards littering my purse
  • the water jug on my desk at work
  • the travel tumbler I carry to work on occasion


but the funniest of all....

My christmas tree.

Now from there, you really can't tell. It looks like a happy little tree covered in colourful ornaments, which it is. You've got mice, rudolph the red nose reindeer characters, gingerbread men, lollipops, snowmen...even sesame street characters!

But there is evil lurking within...

Placed carefully throughout the tree is about a dozen or so Starbucks ornaments.







I've got coffee cups, mugs, tea cups and even a package of their best-selling christmas blend adorning my 7-foot artificial masterpiece.

And then you wonder why I am the self-proclaimed starbucks whore...

It's quite clear now, eh?

At least I haven't gone in, purchased a pumpkin scone and run out to a craft store for some shellac and created ornaments of my own.

Although I'm sure Martha Stewart would be proud. :P

I'm actually fairly glad that there's not a Starbucks at every corner here in Halifax. There's three than I can think of, although their may be a few I don't know about. I have to go out of my way to go to one and it's not on my daily route....thank friggin god.

It's actually a rare treat that I get to go and get a yummy low point latte....which I must work into a Sunday trip to Chapters some time soon...mmmmmm

I'm with Angie, I'm super glad we don't have a Starbucks on every corner here, it just looks too inviting. We only have one in the city and it just opened about 2 months ago. The first (and only) time we've gone we spent $9.89 for 2 MEDIUM lattes....are you kidding me??? 10 bucks? That is insane! I can't bring myself to go back.

HEY! this is a starbucks hate-free zone!

my sugar-free vanilla americanos do not require me to take out a loan, nor does a grande bold.

stay away from the fancy pants drinks, ladies.

and the scones. they're evil in pastry form...and so good too *sigh*

We think alike, little Mouse. I love Starbucks, too! But sometimes I get angry at myself for loving it a little too much.

My mornings would totally suck without their coffee. However, I've learned to appreciate the simpler drinks. The one time I made an exception I tried a Peppermint Mocha, and well, you read the letter. . .

Great Post. :-)

PS Cute tree!

I hope you don't whack me over the head with one of those ornaments but...

I have never even set foot in a Starbucks. Ever.

And we have one a mile away from my house. HA!

I love da bucks. Nathan and I can only go together, and when it's cold we don't want to get out as much. We will soon have 3 (yes, 3) within a mile of our house.
We also have the cup and pound-o-coffee ornaments from this year. And their advent calendar.
