Obsessed? Spoiled?

That would be a resounding YES to both!!! My big obsession right now?
Y'all know all summer I was loving the Iced Green Tea Unsweetened. Well, I may love the Chai Tea Latte even more! The only problem is it isn't zero calories like green tea but thanks to my ignorance & a very nice, non judgemental Starbucks worker I figured out how to get one with not many calories. When I first ordered it I was clueless. I just knew I wanted hot tea. I asked if I could get it unsweetened.  I was very scared to ask. How ridiculous is that? That Starbucks ordering is intimidating! Anyway, the girl said it's already "mixed up" but that they could make it with a tea bag instead so I said to do that & I add splenda, truvia or stevia. The only calories are from the milk. I get non fat. I had one this morning. It was 49 degrees. Yes, I got a Venti. I wanted a big one! In hindsight that may not have been the greatest idea. Caffeine doesn't usually have an effect on me but I'm a little jittery now! I feel like I could go run a bunch of miles. Well, if my hip wasn't still hurting that is.

I'm loving my planner too. If I would've had it a month earlier I wouldn't be in the ornament making predicament I'm in now but that's another story.

Dean had to go to Texas for a couple of days for work. We decided he would take my truck because it gets better gas mileage so more mileage money. Ha! Also, it's only a few months old whereas his truck is 7 years old. I drove his truck for 2 days & I came to the realization that I am so FREAKIN SPOILED!!! I do not like that truck. Not that it's not nice but it's not nearly as nice as my Explorer or as nice as my Expedition was. No Sirius radio, you actually have to use a key to start it, the steering is awful so it's very difficult to park. Nothing turns like a Ford! I'm VERY THANKFUL that I have my Explorer back today.

Has anyone tried these?
I didn't know they had such a thing as Candy Corn Hershey Kisses. We have a candy bowl at work & my co-worker got Halloween candy on sale. I tried one & was surprised at how good they were. I didn't think it really tasted like a candy corn, more like white chocolate. Really good but I'm not obsessed. I just needed a little something sweet the other day.

Today is my very best friend in the whole worlds birthday - DEAN!! He reads my blog. I love you & hope you have a wonderful day!!! Happy Birthday!!

Wow this post is all over the place. Must be the caffeine. When I said I was a little jittery, I mean A LOT jittery!!



  1. Happy Birthday, Dean!!

    Even tho I am an ONLY child... I am SO not spoiled. Stubborn... but DEF not spoiled. ;)

    Have not tried any of these. The Hershey Candy Corn sounds delish.

  2. Happy happy birthday to your man! Have a fun time celebrating!

    I am spoiled too. Gary has an old Ford Bronco...that thing is his baby, but I hate driving it!

    I understand the caffeine jitters. That happens to me all the time!

  3. I am totally addicted to Starbucks right now, too. It's an expensive addiction, for sure!!

  4. My coffee addictions were so bad last year, I could drink a Venti 2x a day or drink a whole pot of coffee at home and go RIGHT to sleep. Seriously!
