There are a million awesome things about this time of year and the holidays. The things that are on my mind are full of calories and totally scrumptious.
Thats right is is definitely time for Starbucks eggnog latte, gingerbread latte, and peppermint mochas!
And just what is the most perfect thing to go with any one of these? Peppermint bark! I LOOOVE peppermint bark. Ghiradelli is yummy and easily accessible, but if you have thirty bucks to drop on chocolate treats my favorite is from Williams-Sonoma.
(p.s. I was browsing the holiday coffee creamers at the grocery store yesterday and there is eggnog latte, maple brown sugar latte, peppermint mocha, white chocolate raspberry, and gingerbread latte!)
My birthday was this past week, I am now on the wrong side of 25. Again, we had a little antiquing trip. The soundtrack of the day? Led Zeppelin, of course. A good time was had by all. All being the husband and I.
Started off the day with my summer addiction – a Starbucks java chip frappuccino!
Then I picked up a boatload of Krispy Kremes for some awesome ladies! Which meant I also ate some donuts of course.
I can’t handle food that is TOO sweet – my favorite is the custard filled, but I also love the blueberry cake and chocolate cake donuts. The husband on the other hand loves the sweets. He ate one of the featured oreo donuts that had oreos on top and cookies and creme filling.
Antique stores are so fun! I want everything in there. I am constantly uttering “Oh this would be a perfect prop for a shoot” Or “This would be great for the studio I might have one day” which annoys the husband. I actually did a bridal shoot in an antique store once. Good times.
And after all of the antique stores we went to Dillards for a pair of birthday Sperrys.
and a Ralph Lauren button up from the little boys section because hey it fits me and it’s 25 dollars cheaper.
Then we finished off the day with some mexican for dinner – I ordered fajitas which were too yummy to stop and take pictures of.
I had my first holiday themed coffee today. I had a little business meeting at the local Starbucks today. As I have said in the past I am not a professional coffee drinker. This was maybe my fourth trip to Starbucks in my life and every other trip was a cold chocolate chip milkshake like beverage. This time I ordered the eggnog latte and it was delish. I LOVE the eggnog.
