I've met Starbucks

Yes, I've met Starbucks. I put the blame on Gwen at work, and she willingly laughs and accepts it. She called me one day and asked, "I'm at Starbucks, want me to get you something?". "No," I reply, "I'm not a coffee drinker." "Oh, but you're gonna like this! See you in a bit."

That was my introduction to a vanilla bean blended creme frappacino. Now I average about one a week, and have branched out to try (all blended creme frappacinos) strawberries and creme, pumpkin spice, and the latest (thanks to Angie) white chocolate with peppermint. None of these have coffee in them, thank you very much. I'm sure they all have plenty of calories, but I haven't delved too deeply into that yet. This is my once a week treat, and I don't want to spoil it.

Then tonite I looked over at Jessica's blog, and what did she have but an entry in there about a song for her nephew with his name in it. Inside the blog was a you-tube connection to a Starbucks commercial singing his name, Ben. Well, close, it was Glen. Anyway, there were other Starbucks commercials to watch! I bet I sat here 30 minutes watching Starbucks plugs!

What else am I missing out there that I need to try????

Starbucks will suck you in and never let you out!!! I looove it! I have three favs...and you don't have to be a coffee drinker to love it! Although I am definately a coffee addict...
Can you believe they (almost) made a commercial for my Benji???

I never thought I'd be a Starbucks fan since I don't drink coffee and think they're somewhat high priced, but I gotta admit, I like my frappacinos!

And I really like the commercials! Since I watch mostly HGTV I haven't seen them. I have you to thank for that, Jessica. :)
