Another week has flown by! Yada, yada, yada. Seinfeld fans will appreciate that. I’m way behind on visits, as usual (“No soup for you!”) – but there really is a light at the end of the tunnel, and it isn’t a train! Yay!
Princess Nagger finishes up her State Testing this week, she’ll be happy to have that over and done with for sure. Both kids are looking forward to the fact that they only have 6 more weeks of school before their summer break – six weeks, people!
OK, so you know how the Unicorn Frappuccino was available from Starbucks for a limited time (specifically April 19th through the 23rd)? Well, I couldn’t resist. I had to get one to try it out, and it was my ‘cheat day’, so I could rest easy on that side of things.
It was a little melted since Princess Nagger and I had to stand in line in our Safeway store to check out with groceries after we’d visited the in-store Starbucks for the special treat.
Naturally, Princess Nagger wanted a taste and loved it, so she claimed that one for herself, which of course spurred me to return inside the store and order another for me:
She was a tad bit jealous mine looked ‘better’ than hers, but hey, that’s the price you pay scarfing your mama’s frapp!
And yes, we both thought they were delicious, but then again, we’re those people who like the sweet-and-sour stuff. Apparently, Starbucks has come out with a Mermaid Frappuccino:
Honestly, it doesn’t look as cool or appetizing as the Unicorn Frapp, I’m thinking that green looks a bit…um…snotty. I know, right?
The purple and green Mermaid Frapp was created by Starbucks barista and blogger The Modern Barista, and it’s mostly made with vanilla bean, blended blackberries, and matcha powder.
Princess Nagger has already requested we go get some to try those, too. I’m not sure what exactly Matcha Powder is – but I guess we’re gonna find out! I’ll keep you posted!
It’s time once again for Leslie’s (aka Rory Bore) Tuesday Coffee Chat!
The question or prompt for this week is:
“Finish the sentence.
If I had could go anywhere today….”
I had to giggle a little that Leslie’s OCD is probably on high alert when she re-reads that sentence… I could answer it both ways, though… but nah, not enough time to harass her! *snicker!* So we’ll do it the way I assume she meant it to be:
If I could go anywhere today…. Hmmmm…if time and cost were not an object, I’d totally, without hesitation, jet off to Italy. One of the things on my bucket list is to tour the vineyards in Italy and just hang out amongst all the brilliant winemakers there. I mean c’mon, who wouldn’t want to wake up to this every day on vacation:
Or stay in some awesome villa like so:
Well, OK, that’s more like a castle, but still. I’d stay there. You wouldn’t have to twist my arm! I would absolutely love to immerse myself in the winemaking culture, just to see how the professionals do it.
Of course, I could technically immerse myself in that culture amongst professionals here in Washington State, or Oregon, or even California – so that option will be added to my bucket list as well. But if you’re going to dream, dream big, right? I am, after all, a big dreamer.
That’s a wrap for this week – you know the drill, link up and join in the fun, everyone is welcome, random or not. And that means even if you don’t have a specific Random Tuesday Thoughts Rebel post posted, you can still link up, I’m not picky. You don’t even have to add the badge, just link up so I can come harass you on your blog. I promise to play nice.
