Fueled by a raging 2 day headache and a case of cabin fever I packed the kids into the double strolled and walked to our neighborhood Starbucks.
We only live less than a mile away from this Starbucks but in the 2 years we've lived here I've never walked over there with the kids. Mainly because I have to walk on a very busy street and manuver through Food Source's gigantic parking lot, but today, with all medication failing I new that the coffee and fresh air might bring me relief.
Of course we had to stop at Food Source first for my favorite treat in the world. I think there might be some addictive ingredient in carob because I just can not stop eating these things.
Anyway we made it to Starbucks. My headache is now completely gone, and the kids were happy to be out in the world. So today is looking up, as a bonus James Blunt was on TRL today singing "Your Beautiful", and I practically threw my back out dancing to Shakira's new song "Hips Don't Lie"...love it.

Nice day and I'm glad your headache is gone. Like you, our closest Starbucks is about 1 mile in either direction, with busy streets.

Sorry I told you about the "free" coffee thing too late. Coffee is my secret weapon against headaches (if you don't drink it all the time).

My office is less than a mile from a Starbucks and a gourmet chocolate shop. Yesterday afternoon AJ and I took a little trip, and I ended up spending $8 on five pieces of chocolate!!!!! WHAT!!!! (and the five pieces were not all for me, I was sharing with two other people)

I've been taking walks with my son as often as weather permits lately, and it's been so refreshing. You make me want to go get carob candies! Yum!

Oh girl can I sympathize I have had horrible headaches lately. I hope that it continues to stay away because it just plain sucks.

I am glad you got out and I am so impressed, resisting SB's for two years. Wow! I am glad the closest one is 45 minutes away or else I would be subtracting all those calories from my diet! Dang I love that place.
