The Coffee's Always Better On The Other Side

So I mentioned that I went to visit my friend Kim from Homesteader's Heart last week.  That involved traveling from one side of the country to the other - exciting!

I must say - she took me to some very exciting Florida destinations right off the bat!  Here's one:

But that's not all - she took me here too:
Apparently all the Florida coffee shops are called "Arbucks Coffee."  ;)

What could be better?  How about Starbucks on the beach??
Who would write such a thing in the sand?  Probably some California chick...

Not realizing that I was actually a latte drinker rather than a *coffee* drinker, coffee-loving Kim provided me with an adorable coffee mug and a bag of Starbucks coffee (along with sugar and half 'n half, of course!) to use during my stay.  
Actually, she got me Vanilla Starbucks coffee, but it's gone, baby gone (I prefer the vanilla flavor to the caramel as the caramel is a little too bold for me).

Wanting to be just like Kim, I got *brave* and brewed myself coffee!  I discovered that I don't need as much sugar and half 'n half as I expected (though it's still a lot) so I'll be drinking the coffee from now on - with occasional lattes.  :)

And speaking of having coffee with Kim, did you see our video yet?  We show you - in between laughter - how to make your own pumpkin spice lattes and they're yummy!  Go check it out if you haven't!

Disclosurish stuff:  Hard to believe, but Starbucks did not sponsor this post!  This is all on my own.  And no, I am not obsessed.  Really!  However, I am a Starbucks gold member.  I've even got a coupon for a free Starbucks drink (that I earned myself) in my purse - and I'm not afraid to use it.

More Florida adventures tomorrow...

Have a fabulous day friends!
