Hello! Welcome to the March duel with the Dueling Darlings from SCS. Terry and I are the hosts this round!
Terry and I texted about a theme. Terry found that March 20th is International Day of Happiness. Made us think what makes us happy on a smaller scale. Of course, coffee came to mind! If you are a coffee drinker, it just makes your day a little happier. So, coffee theme it is! Out go the kits to the Divas.
We asked the girls to let us know what little thing makes them happy and to share in their post. Okay, here is mine! Moving with the coffee theme, I like to go to Starbucks. Nothing fancy, just a Venti Blonde Roast, black.
Of course I have to be into efficiency and use the app to order, so I can walk in and pick it up and not wait and can pay via the app. If I que the order on the app before I leave the house, about half way to Starbucks on my way to work I push a button and order placed and paid. Love it!
So, here is my secret happy.....ssshhhhh don't tell anyone.....it is kinda bad......it is amazing the number of people at our Starbucks at 5:40 AM! Really, it is! There are the regular group of patrons that you see and say hello to. Then there are the cutthroats! They are all out to get to the drive thru before you! I mean, come on! Remember how I like to que my order on the mobile app? There is nothing better than a cutthroat in the long drive thru line waiting while (because forbid they go in the store) I park my car you just cut off, get out, walk in to the store, get my coffee from the counter and go back to the car in under a minute. The cutthroats are giving the stink eye and I smile, get in my car and drive away and they have not even ordered yet. Secret happy!
In December DH and I went to Seattle for a few days. Here are picks of the original Starbucks store at Pike Place Market. The very first one in 1971! The lines were over a block long to get in.
I have this stamp set from Avery Elle that is coffee related and perfect for our duel. I decided to go old school stamping and mask the images. I hope the Divas liked their kits. I cannot wait to see what they have created with them. The blog links for the Dueling Darlings are on the right side bar.
Have a great day~
