poor baby. she woke up rather early this morning and must've gotten cold - she rarely snuggles up in a blanket, even at night. she usually kicks it off and i replace it about a dozen times, because when i touch her, the skin on her little arms is always ice-cold.
i forgot to mention that i started my monday off with a nice little treat, mostly because i'd forgotten to make the coffee the night before. i swung into starbucks and noticed this sign as i walked in:
this dude was parked in the middle of the store, flagging down bleary-eyed monday morning worker bees as we staggered in for our caffeine fix. and since i'd managed to get there in between the crowds, i stopped at his little table to take the taste test.
i have to admit, i don't really know shit about coffee. i couldn't really tell the difference between their regular brewed coffee and the new instant via ready-brew stuff they were hawking. and to be perfectly honest, both of the little sample cups i was handed to taste were horrid. then again, i'm more of a "lots o'syrup, lots o'cream" coffee kinda girl, so there. but i managed to identify which was which, and i walked away with a coupon for a free drink.
of course, the coupon is for a free brewed coffee, so we'll see if i even end up using it. heh. i got in line for my usual (grande iced nonfat upside-down caramel macchiato, remember?) and eyed more of their marketing paraphernalia.
last night, the hub was out for a dinner meeting, which he has every wednesday. this usually leaves me free to have dinner with MIL. we scooped up the girls, headed to the mall to run a couple of errands, and found ourselves at this OG spot:
oh, yes. but i'd managed to forget both my camera and my phone at home, so i've got no pictures to share. i didn't order anything particularly exciting anyway, but i did quite enjoy my breakfast-for-dinner plate of hotcakes and bacon. mmmmm. and because the bean was super fidgety, we decided to take our yummy dessert to-go. hello, hot fudge cake.
this, of course, led me to sing and dance for the rest of the evening: "ice cream and cake! do the ice cream and cake!"
i'm seriously four years old.
