First off, I’d like to show you all how my baby shower gift turned out (the baby room’s theme will be Winnie the Pooh):
Every time I wrap a present, I curse myself for not using a gift box and swear that from now, I’m going to use boxes. But then so much time lapses between gifts, that I always forget. And then I always end up with bulky, crinkly, awkwardly shaped gifts. :(
I made my visit to the doctor’s this morning, but not before first forgetting about it and the fact that I was supposed to fast. I woke up dreaming of what I would have for breakfast (I was craving a waffle with some peanut butter, banana, and syrup). I remembered my appointment just in time to stop myself from making any food. Instead, I stayed in bed for a few extra minutes reading blogs about the Lost finale. I also fell asleep last night while also reading these nerd fan blogs. Don’t judge.
After my appointment, I skedaddled right back home for something quick to eat for breakfast. A few months ago, I tried Starbucks Dark Chocolate Cherry Mocha Latte and wasn’t too impressed. Inspired by Kristen’s Chocolate Cherry Bomb shake, I decided to make my own Cherry Mocha Frappucino.
I used frozen cherries, 1/4 frozen banana, spinach, splenda, milk, and some mocha coffee mix.
It didn’t come out the prettiest color, but boy did it taste good! :-D The banana flavor really came through, so if you’re looking for a closer replica of Starbucks, I’d probably leave that out. I would have enjoyed this drink 20x more if it felt like summer outside. Instead, I had to deal with this:
I grabbed the rest of my leftover pesto pizza from the fridge on my way out the door for lunch:
I decided that this really wasn’t a complete meal, so at lunch time, I grabbed a side salad with fat-free ranch dressing from the cafeteria. And since I was feeling caffeine deprived, I chugged a Diet Coke.
What’s your favorite Starbucks drink? Or do you even drink Starbucks?
I’m a sucker the white chocolate mocha latte. I only try to go to Starbucks though if I have a gift card now or feel like I really need to treat myself to an indulgence. Jessica just posted these cookies up today and I’m thinking that I’m not strong enough to resist!
