Friday, I tried out the new mobile ordering on the Starbucks app and it was the best thing that ever happened to my weekday morning. There is a Starbucks in the parking lot at my job (yes - it's dangerous!), and a lot of us walk over there on a regular basis to pick up our morning pick-me-ups. But there's always a long line, so I was super excited to hear about the new mobile ordering. You place your order on your phone, and it'll tell you when it'll be ready. Mine said 4-6 minutes, so I placed the order, walked over, and when I walked in my order was already waiting on the counter for me. Perfection! Starbucks you win all the prizes this week!
After work, I made my way in the pouring rain (and horrendous traffic) to happy hour which included rounds of shots and fried food. But of course good times were had... because shots and fried food... and after the rain came this beautiful sunset. Always worth it.
Saturday was a rough day for me as it was the 2nd anniversary of my cousin's passing. I started off the day with coffee and a donut with all the sprinkles before doing some retail therapy and spending the rest of the day poolside.
That evening, Pamela invited me over for some card games and drinks which got me out of the house and smiling again as CAH is always great for laughs.
Sunday was spent in the pool again after a great Barre3 online workout. My dad is still up in Connecticut, so he opened his card and gift from me over the phone as he and my mom spent a beautiful day down by the beach. I also came across this little guy who was making his way down the street in the mid-day heat. I hope he made it back to the pond!
I've also been on a roll lately with giveaways, I won not one but two giveaways recently and couldn't be more excited for my new goodies! I won a Starbucks gift card from Kate and a very handy Wine2Go from Jaclyn which will come in extra handy on my trip to Key West in 2 weeks with Pamela and Kerri. We can transport bottles of wine, champs, or Skinny Girl in a beach/pool/boat safe container. Now that's just awesome!
