Sbux has it right

Since everyone and their mother has been talking about it, I thought I would too:

Today, Starbucks started using their red cups in honor of the Christmas season.

So that makes this:


not seem so

too early

I don't see anyone telling Starbucks to slow it down or remember that Thanksgiving comes first.

Nope. In fact, I know some of you all ran out to get a red cup today because you were so excited at the first glimpse of Christmas.

So there. Now I think I'll bask in the glow of my Christmas tree lights, and the rest of you can just be jealous of my Christmas tree on November 4th.



  1. I was reading the last paragraph and thought I read something about Glasgow. Uhhh...weird.


    And I totally didn't know about Starbucks using red cups. Probably because I don't drink coffee. But kudos to you starting the trend. I'm positive they read your blog and made a corporate decision to follow your too-cool-to-ignore lead.

  2. That's such a great picture of your tree!!!! It's BEAUTIFUL!!!! I'm so jealous -again- of your life.

  3. LOL @ you two. Ya'll are hilarious. I wouldn't have known about Starbucks, but everyone on Facebook is talking about it :) Everyone is just SO excited :)

  4. I'm proudly one of those people talking about the red cups! Not really the red cups necessarily, but DEFINITELY so excited about the peppermint mocha. Never had one? Well, you need to! They are amazing!!

    And, I have already started bugging my husband about decorating for Christmas. He says we need to wait one more week. That's not too bad! I am pretty sure I can make it one more week...

  5. I saw your status!! What IS a peppermint mocha!?! That sounds ... very weird.. does it taste like a peppermint candy?!! I like vanilla hazelnut lattes, if that tells you anything about my taste buds :)

  6. I like vanilla, caramel and hazelnut lattes, too. And I don't really like mochas. But I LOVE peppermint mochas!

    It does taste like peppermint candy. Peppermint candy that has been dipped in chocolate and a little bit of coffee. It's so good. I promise. If you don't like it, I'll send you the $3 and change that it costs to make up for the money wasted. But, I'm going to go ahead and promise you AGAIN that you'll love it!

  7. Ok! :D I will totally try it sometime soon. And, when I do, I will blog about it and write my take on it :) Thanks for the tip!!! I also like pumpkin spice lattes.. and, again, that sounds kinda gross in my head, but it really is yummy in real life. Mmmm.

  8. I swear you and my sister-n-law would get along great, she has her tree up too! You guys remind me of each other! Pretty tree, Shannon. :)
