Pumpkin Spice Latte – isn’t it fall yet?


So it’s not quite fall yet.  We’ve got 11 more days.  But that’ OK.  There’s enough of a chill in the air to explain having a pumpkin spice latte.  I’ve got a fall wreath on the front door and mums on the porch.  I say, go for it!

i love tiramisu

Need I say more? 🙂

Supporting Your Local Coffee Shop

There’s a small family owned coffee shop near my office called Sip of Seattle. I have many coffee choices while at work

  • drink the office coffee
  • Caribou
  • Starbucks
  • Sip of Seattle

I like Starbucks as much as the next girl.  My friend Mirna likes Sip and she’s gotten me hooked on it.  For one thing, she doesn’t really like Starbuck’s coffee.  Second, Sip’s owners are Colombian.

The other day I bought a cup from Sip and felt good about supporting them.  They are nice people. If we don’t support small, local businesses, they will go away.  Please support your local businesses.  They are unique jewels that can’t be duplicated.   

My coffee’s all wrong

coffee + soy milk

Or maybe it’s right?  I don’t drink coffee because of the caffeine and because it hurts my stomach.  Instead I drink Teeccino.  I don’t drink milk because I’m lactose intolerant.  Instead I drink soy milk.  I don’t use sugar because of the calories.  Instead I use stevia.  So my morning cup is teeccino with soy milk and stevia.  Kind of weird, but hey, it works for me.
