I’ve decided to start a series of blog postings about my favorite things! Though Nick and I are careful with our pennies, I find myself noticing things around the house that I absolutely LOVE, and feel the need to share with my loyal blog followers.
There is a story here.
I should start by saying that I’m not one of those people that frequent Starbuck’s and spend a fortune tending to my coffee addiction (though I know the value of a Venti White Chocolate Mocha on a cold winter morning). But living in a college town at the time, I found myself at Starbuck’s from time to time, enjoying good conversation over coffee. And every time, I would notice this mug for sale!!! How I loved it! And I secretly planned on buying it eventually, just not yet. I couldn’t justify spending $14 on a mug I didn’t need, from an establishment that I try to boycott.
After having moved away from said college town, isolated in the country, 54.19 miles from the nearest Starbuck’s… I decided to purchase the mug I had been thinking about for all these months. It just had to be.
But when I got to the overpriced, high-calorie beverage franchise, I was devastated to learn that my beloved mug had been discontinued and is no longer sold. WHAT?! But being the driven, ambitions kinda girl that I am, I couldn’t rest until I had my mug. So after a little internet research (it never fails) I found my mug being sold not only on Ebay, but on the Starbuck’s website! ON CLEARANCE!
I just wrote a substantial blog about my favorite coffee mug. It’s a sad world we’re living in.
