You know you're hooked when....

Tonight I had to run a couple errands and I did NOT stop at Starbucks.

oh wait, this is Thursday...

Tonight while running errands I went through the drive-thru at Starbucks. Usually I have my son with me and I get him a cup of whip cream with a spoon. (see this post) Tonight he was home with Daddy and I didn't request the whip cream. I ordered my drink (Peppermint Mocha Twist Frappuccino) and one to bring back to my mom. At the window she took my money, handed me my drink and napkins, and then I remembered the whip cream. If he's not there I take a cup home to him. So I said, "Oh, I forgot to ask for some whip cream." And her reply was...

"I thought you looked familiar."

Now, this Starbucks is in a small town with a ginormous university. They must serve LOTS of people every day. Yet somehow I'm in there enough to have left an impression. Surely I'm not the only one who orders a side of whip cream? I don't know, maybe? But if I'm in there enough to "look familiar" when they see so many people each day, then I think I can narrow down where these few extra pounds have come from. :)

For a chance to get your own Starbucks card check out this giveaway, but be sure to do it quickly! It ends tomorrow!

My son always asks for that darn whip cream. They must love it when they see me coming with all three of them:)
