Normally I feel guilty spending money on Starbucks treats, because house building mode = budget mode, all the way. Plus, I can usually bake something healthier and tastier at home. But today I had plenty of reasons to hit up the 'Bucks, and ZERO reasons to stay away. I enjoyed my very first Pumpkin Spice Latte of all time, a lemon square and a mini carrot cake cupcake:
Alright, I'll admit it. I get the hype now. Pumpkin Spice Lattes are GOOD. I blame all of you for beginning what will surely become an addiction for me. So why did I go all out at Starbucks today? Two reasons:
One-I ran 21.5 miles this morning, a new record in distance for me.
Two: Jenn sent me a Starbucks giftcard straight from Hawaii! How I could I resist when all the goodies were FREE?!
It was the perfect way to spend the afternoon. Reading in the sun, enjoying tasty treats and chatting with hubby. There MAY or may not have been a quick trip to a certain Nike Outlet which will be discussed tomorrow. Let's just say I spent $26 dollars and came out with running capris, 2 tees, 1 running tank and a huge pack of socks. Thank you coupons!
In other news, hubby got this door hanging pull-up contraption online with an Amazon gift card we had. He hung it up over the bedroom door and said every time we walk through we have to do a set.
For hubs, one set = 7 pull-ups. For me, one set = 1 pull-up. And then after that, I sort of just hang there. Try not to be too jealous of my upper body strength.
Drinks only from Starbucks, or do you get anything to eat while you're there?
In Hong Kong at the Uni my husband worked at we got a discount, so we would eat lunch. But now I rarely get anything but a drink. Today was such a nice treat. Thanks again, Jenn!
Did you ever have to do pull-ups/chin-ups in school? Do you do them now?
I HATED doing chin-ups when I was in PE at school. I was always really bad at them and got embarrassed. I couldn't even do the monkey bars properly...ahh!
