I Love Me Some Starbucks

Can I just tell you that I am madly in love with the Creative Genius at Starbucks who keeps dreaming up all of these crazy Frappuccinos? I mean, seriously - - Raspberry Mocha? Yum. Yes, in case you were wondering, I really did take a picture of my Frappuccino, and my egg sandwich. I had a rare day out this past Thursday, and what better way to spend it than on the patio at one of my favorite Starbuck's locations, followed by taking myself to see the movie Evening. I hadn't been to the movies since I'd taken Camden to see "Cars" last year, and the time before that was before he was born. I love, love to go to the movies by myself - - it feels like such a treat. Anyway, I really recommend this movie. Bring your Kleenex if you go.

I find myself reading more and more blogs lately - - there are so many wonderful blogs out there in cyberspace. A few of my close friends have blogs, and I love being able to read about what they are up to. I also love to read blogs of total strangers. Some of my absolute favorites right now include Goodyblog, which I read about in a magazine - - it has so many neat products listed, and it is fun to go through the archives. Another great one is Baking Bites - - a great baking blog. I have been reading Friday Playdate for a long time, and I love how honest Susan is, without being negative, whiny, trashing her husband, or anything like that . Be sure to read the "about Susan" section in her blog - - her description of herself is hilarious. A blog that I just started reading a couple of weeks ago, called Sweet/Salty, is wonderful. The author's writing style is beautiful, and it seems as though her soul pours out through her fingertips and appears magically on my computer screen. She has recently experienced a devastating loss and writes about it with such eloquence. Be sure to check it out.

As for me, I feel as though my blog has taken a nosedive these past couple of weeks, as I've been occupied with sickness morning, noon, and night. I don't want to jinx myself, but everyone seems to be on the mend. Today is the first day that Camden hasn't been running a fever, so life feels a little more normal. In the coming weeks I'm hoping to get a little more creative in this space - - I seem to have a bunch of little projects going that I'd like to share. For now, I must run and fix dinner!

I took a look at those blogs you talked about - the writing is great esp Sweet/Salty.
Glad to hear everyone in your family is healthy!

I'm hooked on the Starbucks Strawberries & Cream Frappuchino. Wow, those are tasty. I won't try any of the other ones out of fear that they won't be as good.

I'd like to see Evening. I think I'd need a couple boxes of Kleenex to get through it though.

I am in love with the orange mocha frappuchino right now. Funny how we all faves. :)

Glad the family is feeling better! I'll have to check out those blogs! I so enjoy reading yours.
