We've gone and got fancy

Well how did we deserve this? One small town with two Star*Bucks.
I thought I heard an announcement somewhere that these coffee shops were shutting down and then here pops up a brand spanking new building next to Jimmy's favorite place to eat.

Since I'm not used to buying fancy coffees and lattes (not sure if that's how you even spell that word), my youngest daughter ordered me a strawberry smoothie (not called that either) at a very fancy price. I'm not making fun of this store mind you....I just don't know what to order and it just so happened that we were very lucky to have two ladies in front of us that knew what they wanted and my daughter simply said, as she pointed to the lady's drink, "we'll just take one of those please."

When my daughter first asked me what I wanted I told her that I would first have to consult with either Zac, Megan, Matt or Tori, and to hand me my cell phone. They know the good drinks and what to order.
She said, "lets be adventurous and just order something."
Of course you already know how we ordered and if no one would have been ahead of us, we would have had to resort to the old fashioned way of picking a drink....Eenie, meeny, miney mo...
or waiting for another customer to come by and kindly letting them break the line and go first. hehehe.

if you type in smoothie on the internet you will come up with great fresh fruit ice cold drinks. The strawberry- banana - orange juice milk or yogurt is by far everyone's favorite. All you need is a blender and the fruit mentioned above and some ice.
1 cup milk or yogurt
2 cups orange juice
1 banana
5 0r 6 strawberries
4 ice cubes
blend in Blender

That looks like a strawberry frappuccino. We have about nine or 10 Starbucks within a five mile radius. They are all staying open!

hope it was good, before my baby boy was born, my husband would stop by our local version of starbucks and get his usual stuff, and i would get a blended with ice cream coffee drink, on the way to my prenatal appointment. I only got in trouble with the midwife when my husband spilled the beans....all this, and i am not even really a coffee drinker, ha ha
