POWER!!

Boys are funny.

And a bit weird.

This is my first go at a boy child, and almost every day brings about something new that makes me either laugh, sigh, or wonder how in the world I'm going to make it until he's eighteen.

One thing he does that always makes us laugh is... whenever he finds a stick or bat or anything that can be used as a weapon of some sort, he raises it high into the air and yells, "POWER!"

No one taught him that. As far as I know, he doesn't see it anywhere. He just does it. Every time.

Today I am needing a power boost. I'm starting with some scripture, then moving on to a little Starbucks. A winning combination, I think.

I am a tried and true White Chocolate Mocha or White Hot Chocolate fan. Is there anything else out there I should try? I just know there is a crazy awesome Starbucks drink I need to experience. Please share. I need a change--something new and exciting. Something that will make me raise my cup in the air and yell, "POWER"! (Or something close.) Lay it on me. What's your favorite?

well first of all, my southern beau sweetly accompanied me to target yesterday to pick out wrapping paper...which he then wanted to wave around like a sword for the duration of our shopping excursion....he didn't say power, but i'm sure he was thinking it! sorry if this discourages you for mr. jeb's future! i think it's just a boy thing. as for starbucks, i am really craving a caramel apple spice (fall!) but i heard they have like 100 carbs or something. basically i stick to an iced coffee with a ton of half and half. no sugar. but it's good. sorry for this novel-length comment. happy monday!

Well, I have nothing to tell you about BOYS, I have no idea, except the are WORLDS different than little girls! I am with you about trying something new at Starbucks. I always stick to the "tried and true" Caramel Frap and Hot Choco. I need to go out on a limb and try something new too! I'll watch for advice from your comments.

Aww, Jeb! He's a doll and ALL BOY! No boy stories to share here, though!

But, you MUST try a peppermint mocha...THE BEST!

I was just introduced to the Salted Caramel Hot Chocolate at "StarB," as Chris calls it. I am in love. If you like the sweet/salty combo, you'll like it.

I love gingerbread lattes from Sbux but I don't think they're available just yet...they're seasonal...but the pumpkin spice is also very good! :)
