Thankful Through November - The 5th!

I'm thankful for the Starbucks Holiday Cup!!
Ohhhh, I don't know what it is about that RED cup that I love so much! The coffee tastes so much better to me in this cup! "It only happens once a year!"
There are special drinks only at this time of the year, Pumpkin Spice Lattes and Peppermint Mochas, and Pumpkin Scones (which I love but can no longer eat - gluten!) There are wonderful times ahead with the arrival of Thanksgiving and Christmas and family gatherings and seeing people we love and seeing the kids eyes light up on Christmas day.

I received my first holiday cup of the season and life is grand!

I love it so much my friend who worked at Starbucks got me the red ceramic cup!
And as luck would have it, today my daughter found this red travel tumbler brand new with tags for $.50 at our neighbor's garage sale! Now I shall have my red cup at home and abroad!

And every year I hang these on my Christmas tree!
I can remember my sister-in-law coming back to CA from NYC one year and saying "You would NOT believe this coffee shop they have there! It's so delicious and it's called Starbucks!" And then we got our own in CA. And I have loved it ever since. It's one of life's little luxuries!

And Starbucks and Peggy lived happily ever after!

Now everyone go enjoy some Red Cup goodness and you will be thankful too!


  1. This made me smile...I'm not even a coffee drinker but I sure am thankful for my Pepsi!!!! =)

  2. I love the red cups too! I only *try* to visit Starbucks during the Holiday months (like 5 months a year, lol!) I'm a sucker for Pumpkin Spice Lattes!

  3. I love your post, today. I plan on enjoying an eggnog latte while running errands. The red cups and starbucks holiday blends always brighten my day. Have a great weekend.

  4. i want starbucks now. :)
    have a beautiful weekend.

  5. My Starbucks didn't have the red cups yesterday. I was hopeful, but my salted caramel hot chocolate came in the regular cup. :(

  6. Oh, so beautiful.... thanks for sharing:)))))


  7. I rarely go to Starbucks since I don't drink coffee, but every Black Friday my girlfriends and I stop by our local STarbucks at 4:30am on our way out to shpping and I LOVE the red cups...I get the mint hot chocolate...YUM!
