Should I be ashamed I took zero pictures with my actual camera this weekend?
In the world of bLyss, it was a pretty uneventful weekend. I’d consider it a good one to gear up for the upcoming holiday madness.
Something I did capture, however, is my love and appreciation for Starbucks. This weekend, they had a “buy one holiday drink, get one free” special. When we pulled up to the ‘Bucks on our way to James’ Saturday afternoon basketball game, I thought, “Hmmm… how can I capitalize on this?”
Enter Alyssa, one skinny extra-hot tall gingerbread latte on one hand, and one skinny extra-hot peppermint mocha in other. Weeeeeheeee!
|fuzzy on my camera phone, but you can still see the adoration in my eyes.|
Since Starbucks can be pretty pricey, I try to limit my purchases to when I have a gift card. Thank goodness Christmas is coming up, because that last trip just drained my last card (Hint, Hint)!
After basketball, James and I joined our good friends Cynthia and John for a fun night in town at a Tree Lighting event. We enjoyed dinner and went back to the house to play a HILARIOUS board game that I highly recommend…
Quelf! I would give you a description of the game, but I think it’s even better to let you dive right in, as that’s what my experience was like. Here’s a little preview picture to give you an idea:
