Thanks, Starbucks, for Helping Me Treat Myself

Egg nog lattes are back at Starbucks. I wait for this day all year. To treat myself to the eggy noggy goodness is so unlike me the other 10 months of the year...I am a green tea girl all the way. But for some reason, I am mush in the hands of the barista at the beginning of November.

Say what you want about the machine/corpocracy/evil empire that is Starbucks...and I say it myself...often. However, I am grateful for their helping me to get over my "do-for-everyone-else" disease for a few weeks a year. And in the last two years, I have gone to my local, non-chain, coffee shops to ask for egg nog lattes.

Find a treat for yourself, however silly or small, and go for it.
