Hi everyone! How are you doing today? 😉
OMG guess what! We went to Starbucks two days in a row!!! (Wed and Thurs) And we NEVER go to places like that!!!!! (so it’s a big deal for us) 😉
On Wednesday, I went to explore my home town. (and it had gone through some huge changes!)
There was absolutely nothing here, and now there’s a cute square!!!
Lots of stores like these (ex: Panera bread, Chipotle, Movie Theatre, Claries, etc.) Very cute for a tiny town! 😀
And for the last few forever, I’ve been having a Starbucks craving. (Why? Because she goes there often, and the more I she mentions it, the more I wanted to go!) And I live in the area of Starbucks, so why not go? (there’s one about every few blocks; it’s crazy, I tell you!) I haven’t been there for a year, so it’s okay, right? 😉
On Wednesday, my brother, his friends, his sister, Michael, and I went to Wild Waves!!!!
I didn’t take pictures because I was having too much fun! But we went on water slides, roller costers (and probably not going to ride one for a looooooooooong time), and pools!!! 😀 It was a blast, but it was COLD!! (it got sunny afterwards, but the water attraction lines got waaaaaaaaaaaaaay too long!)
Then after we dropped off my brother at his friend’s house for a sleep over, Michael and I went to Starbucks and he got me this.
Soy Strawberries and Creme Frappuccino!!!! It seriously reminded me of Meiji Apolo Chocolate!!! (Japanese chocolate with a little bit of strawberry chocolate on top of the mountain. It’s soooooooooooo good! Not vegan, though) It has a lot of sugar according to this, but oh well. We didn’t have that big of a lunch (a AB & J sandwich and some Soy Crisps), and we ran around like crazy, so it’s okay. 😉 I don’t have it everyday, either. So it’s all good. 🙂
This wasn’t the frapp I was expecting, but I ended up liking it quite a lot! So it was again, all good. Would I give it another try? If I’m in a mood for sweet, Japanese chocolate-reminding taste, then yes!!!
Also, Michael got me this new baby:
Peeled Mango snacks!! It was a new product, and I had to give it a try! (there were other ones like apples, cherries, and pears?)
They’re organic, so that’s a plus. 🙂
It was very chewy (not good if you just got your braces tightened!), a little hard/tough, but the flavor was very mango-y, and it smelled really good too! If there is a next time, I will go for apples!
Then I got Dr. Lucy’s Cookies.
Chocolate Chip Cookies = yum! I wanted cookies that were kind of dried (like this one), so this was perfect! (4 for $1.50. A little pricy, but it was worth the price!)
Next day (Thursday), I wanted to go on another Starbucks date. (because I thought it was cute and fun!) After picking up my brother and doing all the lunch/dinner (99% dinner. Lunch was my weird creations and a peppermint stick luna bar)
Vegan Rice Crispy Balls (organic brown rice puffs + hemp seed cereal + coconut flakes + ricemellow. Mix them together and form balls. Pretty simple and very tasty. I wanted to drizzle melted chocolate over this!) 😀
Same thing as the top one, but in a bar form (on a graham cracker + nooch+water combo to make a sticky “paste”) The cracker got very moist and I thought it was funny. 🙂
Nooch paste (Nooch + water = paste) on pretzel sticks. Again, the nooched part was moist and it was very salty (kind of like cheese) 🙂
A big – kickin‘ salad from WF’s salad bar. (it had cooked potatoes, but those were eaten before I got home) 🙂 I had a huuuuuuuuge craving for salad. Don’t know why, but it was really good!!
Going back to what I was talking about now. We went to a Starbucks near by this time. (and finally got the drink I wanted!!)
Soy Green Tea Frappuccino!!!! Yes!!!! I love this drink so much!!!
Oh heaven!!!!!!! 🙂 This is my all-time favorite starbucks beverage!!! What’s your favorite? Any of them that you recommend?
After the purchase (this was where the fun began), we sat down and talked. Literally, just TALKED. We talked and talked and talked for about a good 45 minutes to an hour. (holy wow!) I actually truely enjoyed doing this, because we don’t really “sit and talk”. It was very fun, and I got to know Michael a little bit better. I would like to do this more often!!!
(And lastly, thank you sooooooooooo much Michael for buying me all those treats! Next time, I will be happy to pay!!)
I absolutely love trying new things!! (food, clothes, malls, going to new places, etc.) How about you? Are you a challenger? Or do you like to stay in the “comfort zone”?
I have another, fun day to look forward to!! Have a good weekend and thaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaanks for coming!! 🙂
