Starbucks

I have a slight addiction to coffee. Ok, ok, if I am being completely honest, I have a full-fledged, crazy, insane addiction to coffee and all forms of caffeine. 
Most days I try to bring my coffee from home/use the office Keurig, but.... most Fridays I treat myself to Starbucks and then sometimes I need a few other Starbucks fixes throughout the week. . Sidenote: $5 every Friday costs me roughly $260 yearly. I know, I know, it's not a wise budgeting decision. With all of the coffee I drink, I'd be willing to be I spend a whole lot more than even that. But, I'd choose coffee over a new handbag any day
I have several drinks that I enjoy from Starbucks so I thought it'd be fun to share my favorite drinks and then hear from you! I never really try a new drink; I've been drinking the same things since sophomore year of high school. However, I think it might be fun to try something new every once in a while. I like:
  • Grande non-fat latte with one Splenda
  • Venti Dry Cappuccino with one Splenda
  • Venti Dark Roast iced coffee with light ice and one Splenda
  • Venti Dark Roast with one Splenda

Yours,

I totally relate to this post! Heehee, trying to decide between what is wise financially and coffee is difficult....but coffee usually wins ;) My favorite is a grande iced Americano with a little half and half. Though I am loving the iced skinny hazelnut macchiato for special occasions!

I am a total Starbucks addict. My go to drink is a grande no foam, no water Tazo chai tea latte with one Splenda. When it's really hot out, I'll order a venti Passion Iced Tea Lemonade with light ice.

I might also have a Starbucks problem. I'm going to try your 'Starbucks on Friday thing' and see how it works out...I usually go twice a day (on my way to work and on my way home)...I know, I know.

My co-worker, which I found out yesterday, likes caramel apple spice (it tastes like apple pie, she says). my morning drink is a triple soy caramel macchiato. My afternoon drink varies- calm tea, frap, chai latte, iced tea...depends on my mood.

I love Starbucks, but I tend to go to Caribou a bit more! Either way, a grande iced skinny vanilla latte always does the trick. :)

I am a total Starbucks addict! But when I'm home I'll make my own lattes since my parents have an espresso machine. I've become quite the pro at it! At Starbucks I'm an iced latte one splenda girl!

YUM!! I have definitely cut back from Starbucks lately, which is a huge feat because there is one directly across the street from my apartment! I did however go this morning before a meeting, and at $3.99 for a grande cappuccino, and I was like NO! Definitely agree with your once a week stance! Blessed to have an office with a never ending supply of Starbucks House Blend.

My go-to was a chai latte with soy, but after cutting caffeine out of my diet, my new favorite is peach lemonade! Perfect for a hot summer day :)

Skinny Chai Tea Latte is my favorite! I think if coffee makes you happy then that's what's most important! Your tumbler is super cute!

I'm going to try your latte choice next time I go in. My normal order is Grande White Chocolate Mocha, non-fat milk, no whip

Summertime drink: Iced caramel coffee with skim milk (size depending on sleep deprivation from the night before)
Wintery drink: Grande skinny caramel macchiato - usually with an extra shot ;) Starbucks obsessed!

Venti Skinny Mocha extra hot. Every. Single. Morning. The baristas start making it when they see me walk in the door. That's either fabulous or crazy depending on how you look at it!

I'm addicted to their passion fruit tea! It's so good! Spotlight that ring you've got on girl!

Just a suggestion but you should try stevia instead of splenda! theres even a brand called sweet leaf that makes stevia drops with vanilla creme flavors that flavor your coffee :) they have it on amazon and in health food stores. lots of flavors!
