SPT ~ I resolve to take more self-portraits doing things i love

This morning I was scheduled to attend a board meeting for one of my clients, so I needed the car and took the teenager to school. It was pretty early to head to my meeting, but not enough time to come all the way back home.
So I analyzed all my errands and found one I could take care of at such an early hour of the morning. There is a special someone in my family (I don't think he reads my blog... if he does, well the surprise is up) with a birthday coming up this week and I wanted to get a Starbucks gift in his card before I put it in the mail today.

Starbucks is up early... good plan!
I don't drink coffee anymore, so I don't frequent Starbucks even though they do have plenty of really yummy non-coffee drinks. I don't know, I guess it is that whole appearance thing... if you don't drink, but someone catches you buying alcohol, what does that look like? Maybe I think too much about these things. But even when I did work in downtown Seattle in the heart of Starbucks country, it was just a special treat to indulge in one of their yummy drinks on occasion.
And since Idaho isn't really a target area for them, it is even less often a treat for me here... less than once a year probably. But I do love their hot chocolate, oh I forget just how much I love their hot chocolate.
This morning I tried something new (so this spt covers my portrait trying new things that I missed last week, and things I love all in one shot... nice) a white chocolate hot cocoa with a shot of Cinnamon Dulce! So yummy, not on my diet, but it was recommended, and I have been really good. I have to say we have one of the nicest Starbucks I have ever been in, and the employees were over the top amazing!


I love sending small and simple treats to loved ones, and I love that today it gave me the opportunity to give myself a little treat too!

No a straw is not weird I like straws in my hot drinks... the lids on the hot cups cut my lips so I always ask for a straw.

I love the Self Portrait. you did an awesome job on it.
