Red Cups are Here!

Jen told me yesterday that the red cups are at Starbucks. This means they are now serving eggnog lattes, gingerbread lattes and peppermint mochas. YUM! I indulged on my first eggnog latte of the season this morning and it did not disappoint.

You know how a pumpkin might represent Halloween or fall, and a bunny might represent Easter? Well, the red cups represent the holidays to me and get me in the holiday spirit. My favorite time of year is October - December but if I had to choose my favorite holiday, Christmas would be the winner - by a lot.

Here are some of my favorite things: red cups (duh!), holiday decor in shopping centers/malls/downtown, holiday music, decorating the house, buying presents, wrapping presents, traditions like baking cookies with the family, sending/receiving holiday cards, holiday parties, holiday catalogs, uggs, warm sweaters and scarves, staying inside and watching tv and baking while its raining outside, making homemade soup, the smell of a live wreath on the front door.....oh I could go on and on! Welcome holidays, you are HERE!

I was thinking about an eggnog latte at 4 am this morning. Dylan was up all night throwing up and I was praying that Starbucks had them now. It's going to be my afternoon treat. Thanks for the blog!
