I won FREE coffee!

I am an avid drinker and fan of Starbucks (no, this is not a paid promotion!). I linked a giftcard up to their website some time ago and set it to reload. Partly just so I could keep track of what I was spending. Yesterday I got a card in the mail letting me know I am now a gold level member and listing all of the awesome benefits (hello - freebies and discounts galore!) that come with it. Woo hoo!! This morning I walked to my usual weekday location and redeemed a coupon for a completely free venti breve one-pump-mocha latte with whip - YUMMMMMMMM. If you haven't tried it, you must go do that now. Go. Now!! You won't regret it...except for the whole addiction part, of course. This drink is rich & creamy thanks to the half & half ("breve" in starbucks-speak) with just enough mocha to feed my chocolate craving, only far fewer calories and carbs (because I only get one pump as opposed to the usual 4-5). For anyone diet conscious, reducing the number of syrup pumps is a cool trick I learned from the nutrition section of the Starbucks website. It's a quick, easy and painless way to 'lighten' your beverage of choice so you can indulge without the diet guilt.

Hope this is as helpful to others as it was to me! Make it a glorious day!

Lady Luck

So many of my friends think I am unusually 'lucky' and tell me so often. I have to admit I do win a lot! I definitely think I hit the relationship jackpot. My friends envy what an all-around terrific partner I have. He couldn't be more perfect (for me, at least) if I conjured him with witchcraft. And I am blessed with an amazing job where new and fun opportunities seem to drop in my lap quite often. On a more traditional vein, I also have a lot of fun with lottery tickets and sweepstakes and have done really well with both (winning trips, electronics, gift cards, etc), but i don't consider any of these things to be about luck. I win, in all these wonderful ways, because I WILL it to happen. My expectation is that my life is terrific and only getting better and ever since I began thinking that way, the world around me has conformed to make it happen. This is the essence of something called the Law of Attraction. If you haven't heard of it, buckle your seatbelt before you google the term....then prepare to have your mind blown away. And if you want more info from me, leave me a comment with your e-mail or contact me via e-mail through my my blogger profile and I'll be happy to share more.

Best wishes for a wonderful WINNING day!
