~confessions of a Starbucks addict~

I will be the first to admit it.
When I go on vacation, I make sure to note where the closest Starbucks is.
I am the first to buy the Pumpkin Spice Latte while the sun is still shining outside.
I have been known to go 4 times a day to the overpriced coffee shop.
I can't help it, it's an addiction really.
Could be worse, right?
 I found this "secret" menu on Pinterest and thought it was kinda fun.
 So I started thinking.
What if you could make your own Starbucks drinks at home.
Boy, would that save me a ton of money.
If you go here you can find out how to make your own holiday drinks, just like Starbucks.
Think I may try some of these myself!
 I also thought this poster was adorble!
 And how many of you love the pumpkin scones from Starbucks as much as me?
One of my favorite foodie blogs has a copycat recipe.
You can find it here.

Enjoy your Sunday friends!

Cute! I just posted about this (sort of) too! Do you ever drink coffee anywhere else (gulp~Tully's?) or are you a Starbuck's die-hard? I have never really been able to tell the difference but I actually think Tully's makes better egg nog lattes. Or maybe it's that I learned to tell them to not cut the egg-nog (with milk)- it makes a creamier drink! ;-)

Oh serious Starbucks addict over here (*raises hand*) I try so hard to get them to give me a Pumpkin Spice on my birthday every year
(9/1) they never bend! :( Oh well, nothing says "Official Holiday Season" like the first day Pumpkin Spice is out! In fact all my friends know how much I love it and I usually get at least one from someone in my world on the first day! Yea for awesome friends who really 'get me'! LOL Now go enjoy a nice Starbucks!

Pumpkin latte is my fave! But to me part of the magic is going to Starbucks! I love anything pumpkin right now I would love some pumpkin bread!

I've become a bit of an addict myself. :p I do try and make some of my coffee drinks at home but some days I just have to have Starbucks. Fun post! Thanks for the drink ratios and the pumpkin scone recipe link. :-)


I am a "tall no-foam latte girl."

I'm a former Starbucks barista so all I need is one of the $15k machines and I can make just about anything. Another little tip is you can purchase almost all of the syrups (sorry no mocha, white mocha, or pumpkin spice) for $6 or so a bottle! One of my favs is a chiader. It's a Carmel apple spice with 1/2 the cinnamon dolce syrup and the other half of the syrup replaced with chia. So yummy!

I had my first Pumpkin Spice Latte of the season on Saturday night. Mmmmm...warms my heart.

I always say that one day, when I have space, I am going to make a coffee bar. It would be so fun.
