#ShareJoy with Starbucks

    We were given the fabulous opportunity to sample some Starbucks Holiday Blend - an herbal blend with sweet maple notes in a Latin American and Indonesian coffee blend aka Cloud9 in a cup! 
    We were sent a beautiful box that when opened sprouted some shiny, red happiness to our kitchen. (insert the angels song - ahhhhhh)

 
 
    Since the Hubs proved time and time again that he can't pull off a decent pot of coffee - it was usually watery - I caved and treated myself with a Keurig. Call me a coffee snob - I'll own up to it. And for special coffees and fun blends we use our reusable cup.
    So I loaded up my red reusable cup and pushed the flashing blue button to brew up a cup of the Holiday Blend. (I used my own cup because it is taller than the pretty red cups that came in the box just to prevent the coffee from dripping and splashing all over.)


    With a splash of cream I grabbed my cup and had hoped to sit and sip in silence but my little guy decided it was time to get up for the day. Luckily he is pretty chill in the morning so he just sat beside me and played with his cars drinking his oj while I enjoyed my coffee.


    The aroma is just as pleasant as the taste! Starbucks pulled off another great blend. It is complex yet simple enough to enjoy with any sweet treat - little guy and I opted to bust open some cinnamon breakfast cookies while we waited for the others to wake up. Which was a wonderfully relaxing moment after our recent tailspin of a holiday (where Bear ended up in the hospital).


    By the time the Hubs rolled out of bed I was brewing another cup for me and one for him. His verdict? A thumbs up!
    Are your taste buds jealous? They should be!! Lucky for you I have a bag of it to giveaway!!
