it's an addiction, really!



I'm not one of those gals who buys-a-starbucks-everyday person, but now that September is here, it also means the return of my all time favorite-the Pumpkin Spice Latte. Oh, how I love the flavors of pumpkin, cinnamon, nutmeg and clove all brewed in one cup of coffee...Ahh, to me it also signals the beginning of a new season, that fall is here. It means that Halloween and Thanksgiving are just around the corner. When I was teaching, there was a Starbucks right across the street from my school. It was so easy to just hop on by before work to grab one of these delicious concoctions of a drink! Now, it's not so easy and I guess that's a good thing. However, there is a drive-thru Starbucks on my way to pick up the Mr. from preschool. Maybe, just maybe I will stop. I've got to limit myself though-at 200 calories and 5 grams of fat for a tall, non-fat, no-whip pumpkin spice latte-and not to mention over $3 a cup-it's an addiction that must be controlled. Besides, I've also got to hold out for my other beloved Gingerbread Spice Latte when it comes out in November!
