I Would Like a Grande Pumpkin Spice Latte. Heavy on the Whip.

After a day full of whining from Isabella, our cat Boo, and myself.

After a day full of exhaustion from myself.

After a day full of being bundled inside from the cold.

After a day of dreading tomorrow's dreaded 2nd flu dose for Isabella.

I have made an executive decision--a decision that will ensure that this Momma stays sane while keeping her family sane.

Tomorrow is declared take your child to Barnes & Noble and treat yourself to your favorite Starbucks drink--you know the one.

Don't forget to buy something for your little one....it will make your bookstore experience much. more. enjoyable. For everyone.

PS--I am going to buy the second book of the Twilight series. Being halfway done with the first I am now hooked on this crazy phenomenon that has swept over our country. (Don't mind that I am probably the only one around who hasn't completed book one yet....)

This sounds like a nice day! I so wish we had a Barnes & Noble! As for Twilight, I haven't even thought about reading them. I am not very vampirish. So I am not sure if they will be good or even interest me.

Good thing you entered my contest then eh? LOL But you got the drink wrong, you need to try the Salted Hot Chocolate!!

I have not read the Twilight series, I thought maybe I was just old and not really understanding the whole phenomenon. Hmmm, maybe I'll have to get into it, Christmas wish list perhaps?

I'm not much of a reader (of books anyway) so I have not succumbed to the Twilight craze myself. Glad you are enjoying it.

And hope you have a great shopping trip after all that!

Are you gonna go see the movie tomorrow night? Will you be done reading it by then?! I read #1 the fastest: 3 days, and I'm a S L O W reader. LOVE THE BOOKS! BTW, send me your e-mail address if you ever wanna look at my blog. I just changed it to private (and like the idiot I am) forgot to have everyone send me their e-mail addresses FIRST! jamybailey@hotmail.com

I'm not on the bandwagon, yet. I didn't like Harry Potter so I'm leary of lit not of my age genre :)

Hope today is better and yummier!

Jenny said...

i have not read the first book in the series, although i want to. i have so many books i am waiting for at the library on hold...might as well buy it at this point.

I treated myself to a BREVE Pumpkin Spice Latte today after my 3 hour glucose test... I know I know... the sugar! But, the lab tech told me to enjoy myself after being poked in the same arm 4 times :) - Try it with breve... oh it was perfection!

I came to your site through BlogHer... cute blog!!

Laural Out Loud said...

I love Barnes and Noble days.

I haven't started Twilight yet! I have it on the shelf, but still haven't finished the book I'm currently reading. I might as well buy the other four now, too.

Clare said...

Mrs de Miranda said...

Vashey Fam said...

I *totally* think you should treat yourself! Mommies need a little attention now and then right?!

Becks said...

Can I meet you there? That sounds lovely. Sophia is back to her whiny self again...darn those teeth!

I am hooked on Twighlight too! I am finishing up the fourth and cant get enough of this crazyness!!

Krystyn said...

What a great idea! Two kids, though...that's a little tougher!

Amanda @ notsoextraordinary said...

Kristen said...

I hope you were able to get that pumpkin spice latte. Sounds delish. And when I got super pissed last night with India, I too headed to the starbucks drive thru. Made me feel better!!

Thanks for understanding my complete absence here recently. Things seem to be spinning wildly out of my control! UGH! Hoping to be back reading and commenting again soon. :-)
