I was one of the many people that went shopping shopping on Black Friday but I was after something other then reduced electronics – something waaaay better. I headed to Sam’s Club to purchase Starbucks limited edition Holiday Blend coffee. Yes, seriously.
Ryley and I left the house a little before seven. I knew people were probably not going for the coffee like us but I didnt want to risk missing the free coffee demo they were having. We still had to wait in line for 15 minutes but thats ok because my little lady kept me entertained.
Once we got in I bee lined for the Starbucks display to snag my free cup of coffee and cinnamon roll. [Priorities people!]
I grabbed a roll for Ryley and we strolled around the store eating and chatting. I really enjoyed the girl time with my baby.
Fun fact about me – I am a quarter thief. If I see a quarter laying around I claim it as mine and dont look back. Ryley has started doing the same thing and she likes to put them in her jean pockets. She had a few in her pockets and when we left she dropped them in the Salvation Army bin. Didnt even think twice about it and waved to the gentlemen ringing the bell. Talk about melt your heart moment.
When we got home I was greeted by a house full of hungry bellies so I brewed some coffee and heated the cinnamon rolls. I was excited to try the Holiday Blend because I dont usually buy Starbucks in the bag. Im more of a one cup at a time, drive through kinda girl.
While the Artisan Fresh cinnamon rolls were in the oven I sipped on my coffee and chatted with my family that had stayed the night. I made a few eggs and some leftover ham to go along with the coffee and rolls and relaxed and enjoyed our company.
After drinking the coffee with the cinnamon rolls I think that they really brought out the hints of ginger, pumpkin, nutmeg and cloves in the Holiday Blend. It was like drinking a cup full of holiday cheer.
