Listen, sometimes my Fifty Two Shades of Shay are more serious and sometimes, they’re just plain silly…but they’re always representative of a shade of my life…and the fact that I’ve been doing these shades every week now for 18 months and haven’t done a post on Starbucks is just plain shameful.
Hello, my name is Shay and I’m a Starbucks addict.
I don’t know what it is…but there is just something about pulling in that drive-thru and leaving with one of their cups that makes my heart happy.
I have discovered that having a drink and reading a magazine during the 30 minute daily carpool line is one of my favorite parts of the day.
And if I don’t get one while I’m waiting in the carpool line…I’ll have one while I’m at my desk working…
…or I’ll have one while I’m in the car driving.
I’m afraid that I’ve passed this addiction down to my sweet kids…they love getting breakfast, a special treat or a drink at Starbucks too.
My sweet girl loves her some Starbucks.
What can I say? It’s a Shade of Shay.
I always order the same things depending on the time of year and the weather…when in doubt, a Caramel Macchiato is always my go-to drink of choice. Here are my favorite drinks…
1. A non-fat Caramel Macchiato
2. A non-fat Pumpkin Spice Latte, no whip
3. An iced unsweetened green tea
4. The Blonde Roast with a splash of cream
5. A Peppermint Mocha Frappuccino Light
I didn’t have my first Starbucks drink until I was in college…I started selling insurance when I was 19 (that was my real job for 12 years)…and I needed something to perk me up in the afternoons, so I walked to a Starbucks nearby for coffee or tea…and became an addict. I still get just as happy about a drink today as I did way back then :).
I don’t drink sodas or juice…coffee and tea are my beverages of choice besides water.
Listen, I know I’m not alone with this great passion. Tell me what you like to order when you go! Maybe I should try something new???? There is a secret Starbucks menu of drinks they can make that isn’t published…if you order one of those, I’d love to know what it is!
Starbucks addicts…I want to hear from you ;). I’d love some new suggestions (things I could order my kids too!).
Happy Tuesday friends…have some coffee in a white cup with green writing and think of me.
