GOOD: Let's start this off with some exciting news from the Starbucks blog: the Mocha Coconut frappuccinno is coming back this summer!! Whoo Hooo!! I actually tweeted the Starbucks people last summer about this as it used to be my FAVORITE drink (back before I got cheap and started drinking iced coffees). If you like coconut and chocolate you must go try one of these! It's a perfect Summer afternoon treat!
BAD: Monday morning I met up with Lis and she gave Trey this adorable little guy named Lenny the Lamb! A review is coming your way soon, moms - you are going to LOVE this!! I got a refill on my way out (don't judge, remember it was a Monday). And as I'm driving along I take a sip. BLEH. I ended up with a mouth full of coffee grinds.
Luckily, I mentioned it to the guy this morning and he was super apologetic and gave me a venti for free! I love good customer service!
And last, but definitely not least....
UGLY: So yesterday I met up with some of "Trey's friends" (How does an 8-month old have friends?) and their Mama's. It was basically monsooning here so we all rushed to get inside of a Starbucks by The Little Gym that we go to. Here we are: 4 moms, 4 babies under a year each, soaked with diaper bags, umbrella strollers, carriers. And guess what? No where to sit! This particular Starbucks has a pretty decent sized lounge area with basically two sofa type things. I see a man there with a laptop on his lap and a lady at the sofa next to him.
Here is my convo with the lady:
Me (aka Drenched Mama): Hi, I was just wondering how long y'all were going to be here?
B*tch Meanie): A LONG time. He's WORKING. (And gives me a *death* look)
Me: (Eeeek) Ok, sorry to bother you - we'll go somewhere else.
Lady: Eye roll
Guy working: What did she ask?
Lady: (Makes agitated cough-sound) She asked if we were leaving. (cough-sound)
Now, for those of you that have met me, I'm pretty sure you know that I said it super nice and wasn't trying to push them out. Be honest with me, was that rude of me to ask? Could she not have said - "oh I'm so sorry - we will be here a while working"? Am I wrong? Or do I just expect too much of strangers?
Regardless.... we picked up our stuff and headed somewhere else. Where everyone was nice and we had a great afternoon! Can't let the *haters* get you down!! :)
I hope to have my April goals and Trey's 8 month pictures up soon! It's been a crazy week at the Beach Bum household!! I will also be catching up on everyones blogs tonight! I feel like I've missed so much in two days!!
