Starbucks Can Cure What Ails You...

So imagine how stoked I was to read Lil' Mommy that Could and find out that Mel over at Life is Like a Box of Chocolates has reached the milestone of 500 posts and is giving away a Starbucks card and chocolates to one lucky reader?!

Ahhh...my two favorite things, caffeine and chocolate (which is really just more caffeine).

So, today I decided to go on a little trip to my local bead store, which I love, in order to get supplies to make earrings for my sister's wedding. I'm always amazed when I see the prices for earrings in the department stores, after knowing how much the supplies cost. What a racket! I left the house as soon as J woke up, leaving H behind as he'd been having a particularly challening morning, necessitating the taking of a break by moi. C and I were securely in the car and on our way when I realized that the store didn't open for 45 minutes. Hmm...what to do, what to do?

Lightbulb came on as I realized I still had the remains of a Starbucks card, which was perhaps my favorite in-hospital baby gift. I stopped in and enjoyed my grande non-fat light whip mocha (my 'weekend drink'); note the chocolate and caffeine combo.

C sat quietly in his carseat, leaving all to comment on what a beautiful baby he is, and I got to alleviate the slowly building withdrawl headache.

What a great day! I was insanely tempted to fill out the application for part-time baristas, if only for the free coffee.

If you want a chance at the giftcard, Mel is leaving her post open for comment until next week. Just comment on the post, that's titled "My 500th Post".

Thanks so much for the linky love! I just may have to buy more Starbucks cards for everybody who is being so nice. I hope you come by to visit again.

BTW, I love the name of your blog. Definitely will be back to visit you again. Can you believe that I have never watched Sex and the City. Everybody keeps telling me that I would really like it so maybe I'm gonna have to go borrow me some box sets.

Have a great week.
