thanks, starbucks

It’s October. My favorite month of the year and not just because it’s my birth month! Fall is my favorite season and October is usually the start of it. Halloween, pumpkins, the starting of the chill in the air, and when I was living in Boston for college, the changing of the leaves.

While I love San Diego and our beautiful weather, I do from time to time miss those changing of the seasonings and Fall makes me miss it the most. I remember looking out of our dorm room window and noticing that the leaves turned color first on the Cambridge side of the river instead of the Boston side. Maybe it got colder in Cambridge first? Ah well, who knows.

The start of October also means the start of getting free birthday stuff in my inbox. This is a new item added to my list: the free Starbucks.

The don’t give you the cute fuzzy cozy, either, you got to get your own.

If you get a Starbucks card (one of those little gift cards) – register it online and they’ll send you (by mail) a postcard with a coupon for a free drink at Starbucks (any drink!). I got the Pumpkin Latte in a large Venti size. I honestly don’t know how anyone drinks this much coffee – you must have a stomach of steel. I could only muster up enough to drink half and save the rest for later.

Thanks, Starbucks, for being the first to wish me a happy birthday. More “free birthday things” posts to come!

  1. Mary, congrats on the free stuff (I prefer to ignore the getting another year older thing myself)! I usually drink tea, several times a day, and have an occasional coffee. Usually Starbucks. Been thinking about getting a French press.

    Hi Jean! Oh yeah, I totally milk the “free stuff for your birthday”. I try to just post about the best of the best or anything new I come across. I should have gotten a chai latte, but the thought of a pumpkin latte was too much to resist! French presses are really nice and I think are easier to use than coffee machines.

  3. hi mary
    free stuff is always awesome!!!!

    happy birthday!

about this site

My name is Mary and I live in San Diego. I've been blogging since 2006 as a hobby - it's my fun, creative outlet! Some random things about me: I'm a front end web developer, I love peanut butter, cookies, warm cupcakes, puppy noses, star gazing, new bags of sugar, sprinkles, cupcake wrappers, egg rolls, eating french fries with ice cream, driving with the windows down, snuggling, wes anderson movies, staying up too late reading a good book and Jake. These are my adventures in all things food. Hope you enjoy the ride.
