Tis the Season

Ahhh. The Peppermint Mocha. The tastiest latte Starbucks offers, and I only allow myself to drink them in the period of time post-Thanksgiving and Pre-New Years. I had my first one today. By this time last year I'd probably already consumed five or six of them, but this year I knew I'd only get to have one or two. (I've been eating a diabetic diet since March and these little babies have quite a bit of sugar in them, like, half of what I'd like to have in an entire day. Oh, and no, I'm not diabetic. I ate like one while I was pregnant to hopefully avoid having a big baby. It didn't make a difference, but I am now 36 lbs. under my pre-pregnancy weight, woo hoo, so I just kept it up after he was born). Anyway, since I've been sick and needed a serious caffeine boost to get be through Hudson's afternoon appointment at the doctor, I decided this was my day. No grande for me, oh no, I went for the Venti. Mmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm. One taste and I was filled with holiday glee.
