Don't Judge Me

I'm not sure if I should admit this.  But I just have to tell someone because I'm so excited!

Warning:  To most frugal, practical, and thrifty folks, this will be an abomination.  To the wallet.

That's why you shouldn't judge me.  This is my one vice.

Let me have my one vice.  Please.


I have made "Gold Card" status with Starbucks.

Do you hear the choirs of angels singing too?

Look at it glow.  

Like it was sent directly from heaven above.

You might be thinking, "Huh?  What?  How?"

  • Get a Starbucks gift card.  
  • Register it online.  
  • Use it.  
  • Reload it.  
  • Use it.  
  • Continue reloading it.  And using it. 
Next thing you know, you get an email stating you're getting a re-loadable Starbucks card.  In gold.  With your name on the front.

And then it arrives in the mail.  You do a little jig in the living room.  You make the mister take a picture of you holding it.  And then you take another picture of it.  Up close.  So everyone can see your name on it.

I wish it had arrived already loaded, but I can't wait to brandish it anyway at the Starbucks I go to often (almost daily).

I can hear that song from Cheers playing right now.

Only they don't know me by name.

They know me as "Grande Vanilla Latte."


    1. Totally off the topic of the entry, itself... I love bantering with you when you're in the doc's office.

      Two more weeks. Two more weeks. Groaaaaan.

    2. Love it! Why have I not done the reloadable card thingy? I'm going to now.
      And Vanilla Latte - good choice. That is my winter/post pumpkin spice latte drink. My summer drink is Iced Caramel Machiato. I just have three seasons at Starbucks. :)

    3. Oh.My.Gosh. I knew you had a problem, but not this big of a problem. You have celebrity status at Starbucks with a gold card that has your name on it! I feel like a red carpet should be rolled out each morning when you arrive!

    4. I got a card for Easter... I am trying my best to fight back the "I want a gold card" feeling.
