It's Monday ya'll! I used to dislike Monday mornings a lot but now that I am lucky enough to stay home with my little man, I have turned into quite the morning person. I used to have to wake up at 5:15 to get ready for my fabulous job teaching fourth graders. I swear most mornings I was not awake getting dressed and once I finally woke up at work, I questioned my ability to pick out clothes. It's a wonder none of my coworkers ever asked me about my choice of wardrobe or why I was wearing mismatched shoes...friends? Maybe not...Just kidding! Love my coworkers!
Anyways, I used to be obsessed with....
A Starbucks Frappucino was my go-to drink on a daily basis for many many years. I thought I HAD to have this wonderful goodness in a plastic cup before I could get my day going. Of course, I went through some health kicks where I gave up these caramel calories but it never lasted too long. The only thing that gave me a bit of trouble was the fact that I was paying almost five bucks for one medium sized cup, filled with sugar, whipped cream, and the most perfect caramel drizzle. I now have no paycheck coming in which leads to not wanting to spend hubby's cash on something a bit higher priced that normal. Perhaps they should consider lowering their prices permanently, not just during random happy hour weeks.
Seeing as how I have the problem I have (which dear Lord isn't a problem at all) I started looking for alternate options. Let me start by saying I despise McDonald's. I can't stand their food and I feel like it just adds a pound to each thigh eating it. I used to have drunken evenings in college and found myself in a car full of sorority sisters driving through the McDonald's in Cullowhee for some paste-nuggets. Ugh! I would wake up hating life (hungover AND the idea that I ate that stuff.) However I put my distaste for the place aside and thought I would try their Frappe's since the commercials claim they are amazing.
After my first sip, I was INSTANTLY hooked. These things are AHHH-MAZING! I can't get enough of them. Now I know, I know...it's even more sugary goodness but I can't help myself. Not only does it taste WAY better than Starbucks, Dunkin Donuts, Caribou Coffee, etc. it is much cheaper. I mean I save three dollars for an even bigger sized drink...talk about a deal! I have limited myself to two a week at the moment because I could literally gain ten pounds in a week just eating these. Since it is Monday morning...perhaps I should put little man in the car seat and head through the drive-through?!?! It is a rainy, dreary Monday here in N.C...so the drive through window may see me once again this week.
Now my rant is over. I think I just needed to justify why I drink these...yikes! Obsessed much?!?
