the next best thing...

Instant coffee packets from Starbucks!

mixed with some of this unhealthy stuff....
and some of this tasty stuff.....
one of the attorney's i work for goes to starbucks...
more than once a day...
every day...
last week he brought me back 10 instant coffee packets.
lOVE!
i don't have a coffee maker at home
so these little things are PERFECT for me!
i think you get 12 in a pack for $10.
i don't know if i'll continue buying these but i love free samples :)
i know there are other brands/companies that sell
instant coffee packets as well but starbucks is my fave!

yesterday this same attorney was at starbucks,
he brought me an americano.
i was not at my desk when he brought it to me
and he was on the phone when i got back to my desk
so i sent him an email saying THANK YOU for the coffee!
he wrote back and said "anything for my former favorite".
excuse me!?! former favorite?!
i asked him who my replacement was.
he replied with a jk, you will always be my favorite.
just have to say i love working for these guys.
they are awesome! :)


i hope ya'll have a FABULOUS FRIDAY!!
&& an even better weekend!
it's supposed to rain in MN all weekend....
windy N' chilly....
i'm planning on doing a whole lotta notta ;)

Ooooh, I had no idea about the Starbucks instant coffee packets. Those would be great to keep at work since our coffee here is disgusting. Have a great lazy weekend! I'm super jealous.

haha that's funny! Sounds like you have some great co-workers! My Hubby has family up in Minnesota and we went there last Christmas for my first visit to the state. I'm assuming it will start getting very cold for you up there soon!!! Bundle up! I almost died after I was transplanted to Edina from the Bluegrass State last year! lol

The Rest is Still Unwritten said...

Wow, working for people like that sure can make the days better! I heard about those packets...haven't tried them yet. I love an americano! YUM! This is the first job I've had where the coffee is actually good. Then again, it is a newspaper and someone is here 24 hours a day!

My parents always used instant coffee... maybe that's why I don't drink it. Good to know it's betting better! ;)

Sarah Ann said...

Its SO cold here in ND too. Ugh. You know, I really like (liked?) Starbucks but recently I watched this speech given on what they put in their coffee and how they treat coffee growers and now I'm not so sure! I guess its just one of those love to hate it/hate to love it sort of things?

That one girl said...

Ooooh, I was wondering how those tasted?!?! So, good, huh? Nice to know!

Martinis or Diaper Genies? said...

isn't instant anything the bestest thing ever? I mean the day I discovered easymac was similar to seeing Britney on the VMA's circa 2000. Amazing.

Kristin said...
