I have arrived!

Starbucks (1)

I got a special envelope in the mail today. One that I have been anxiously awaiting.

It's kinda silly, but I was pretty excited about this.

Any guesses to what it is?

All right, I'll tell you.

It's this:

Starbucks (6) fixed
Do you recognize the logo?

Yes, that is a Gold Starbucks card. A Gold Starbucks card with MY NAME ON IT! (Do I hear oohh's and awe's out there? I thought so!)

I didn't even know they existed until my friend Melissa got one! Once I found out about it, it became my life's goal to get one myself.

Yes, I set my goals high and I go for them.

Sure, I may be a bit pumped up on caffeine now, and sure I might not be able to sleep for several weeks, but I have a Gold Starbuck's card with my name on it and all is good in the world.

Except that after seeing the picture above I realize I am in need of a manicure, or at least some lotion.

Aw, you beat me. I've been working on mine ever since you told me about it! I hate to be the one to tell you this, but your gold card looked a little smudged in that last picture ;)

I have not heard of such a thing! I don't have Starbucks very often. I do love their Skinny Caramel Macchiato but there isn't a shop near me. Now my Dad and Brother are regulars at their local Starbucks. I'll see if they have these Gold Cards. It sure is pretty AND shiny!

Erin - the only reason my card looked a little smudged was because I was holding it and admiring it so much. You would understand if you had one as well. ;-)

Donna - I had a Skinny Caramel Macchiato this morning! And thank you for noticing how shinny it is. ;-)

Oh you can be cruel and cold! Have you already risen so high with your gold card that you forgot what it was like down here with just the green one? How swiftly you forget.
