NaBloPoMo’s theme for August is HOT!  The first question up is “Do you like hot drinks such as coffee and tea?”

 NaBloPoMo August 2013

Now, did I say that Starbucks is my friend?  Well, we have somewhat of a love-hate relationship.  I looove the warm drinkable goodness, but my wallet is a hater. 
She and I are still trying to come to an acceptable agreement on spending.  Okay let’s be clear, I’m not necessarily a coffee-addict.  I don’t NEEED a cup of coffee to get my day going, but I do love hot drinks with whipped cream.  Yes, whipped cream.  Just like having any sandwich on a croissant, whipped cream just makes it that much better – to me anyway.  Don’t judge me.

Caramel Macchiato with whipped cream, Caramel Apple Spice (already has whipped cream), Vanilla Latte with whipped cream, Hot Chocolate with whipped cream, etc.   And let’s not talk about when the Thanksgiving/ Christmas holidays roll around – Eggnog Latte with whipped cream please.   Okay, I’m starting to drool…   What are your favorite hot drinks?

    Hey! Found you on NaBloPoMo! I love Starbucks too and it was getting to be a problem for a while. I LOVE their “Venti no-water soy chai!” That’s my go-to winter drink. Are you familiar with their gold-card program? It ends up giving you a free drink after about 12, which seems like a lot but, hey!, free is free, right?

      Hi Kathryn! Thanks for stopping by! Yesss, I am very familiar with the gold card program. A little too familiar! LOL! But you’re right, free is free. I’ve just started getting into the chai drinks, so I’ll have to try that one. Thanks! 🙂

    I am a total sucker for Starbucks as well. My favorite is a grande chai tea latte extra hot with a sprinkle of cinnamon. I use to drink them everyday but $3.89 can get to be expensive 5 days a week:) I started buying the chai concentrate and started making it myself but it just wasnt the same. I also like the caramel frap but when I saw the calorie count omg…I can only do those once or twice a year.
