A Cup Of Cheer

Me and the girls just gotta have our Starbucks.  I only drink coffee three times a week, but during the holidays, it seems I have it more.  We can't help but love their festive drinks before going out into the hustle and bustle of it all.  My favorite drink is the Caffe Americano because it's not too strong and has just the right taste.  Nel's favorite is the Eggnog Latte.  She has always loved eggnog since she was a little girl, and enjoys sipping it before a hectic day at work.  Jess' favorite is the Peppermint Mocha.  Well, do I need to say more about this delightful drink?

I saw this reindeer and thought it was adorable, and couldn't resist.

What's your favorite
Starbucks drink,
if you have one?
We'd love to know.

White chocolate mocha...yummmmmm!

It's me said...

No favorite......and no favorite is capucinno at home real Illy coffee ...delicious !!...always good to drink your coffee at home...x !

Susie said...

I like the flavored ones..their plain coffee is too strong. I think the peppermint sounds so good. As that is one of my favorite candies. I am always telling my Teddy, I may not know the best cup of coffee in the world...but I sure know a bad cup...yuck..what can you do with a weak cup of coffee. Glad you are enjoying time with your sweet girls. xoxo,Susie

We don't have Starbucks where I live in France. But there's always a Starbucks at the airport so when I'm travelling I usually choose a Capuchino. But best of all is the small black coffee my Mr France makes for me at home on our Delonghi
coffee machine.

Miky said...

Dear Sheri, my favorite is the Italian Capuchin ;-)

Imogen said...

I'm with Jess on this one- peppermint all the way. I just love the festive packaging, so adorable.

I like the Dunkin' Donuts salted carmel hot cocoa. I know I'm a wimp, but that's what I enjoy.

Japolina said...

I don't drink coffee but i love a non fat chai latte from starbucks when it is cooler here!

Stop by my blog this week, I'm hosting my first giveaway!


I do not drink coffee. I LOVE Chai Tea latte, though from Starbucks. Or an African Autumn Tea Latte from Bigby's. LOVE that reindeer.

~Lavender Dreamer~ said...

I love coffee but I never get it at Starbucks. All of these special coffees sure sound good though. And I love your sweet reindeer. Have fun!

Susan said...

Hi Sheri:

Love the reindeer and her red tutu! Glam city!

Sorry, I'm a Dunkin Donuts girl. My daughter, however, loves Starbucks as well as my daughter-in-law. Her fave is pumpkin latte.

Take care! Susan

Mary Timmers said...

My favorite is the eggnog latte also. It's a good thing it's only seasonal, or I'd be rolling down the street.


Noelle the dreamer said...

An interesting reindeer! I do not trust anyone to make coffee for me, oops! I not only mix my own but grind it as needed...Yes, an aficionado I am!

Geneva said...

Hi that you and your girls enjoy having your Starbucks when you're out together. I can only imagine how much fun you have. I'm with Jess...loving that Peppermint Mocha. Also love that cute little reindeer...adorable!
Enjoy every minute of this Holiday Season!

Celestina Marie said...

Hi Sheri, I only started to drink coffee several years ago. Now I love it but I have to have my French vanilla creamer in it to drink it. I don't go to Starbucks but I love Dunkin Donuts coffee.
Love your darling reindeer. He is a cutie.
Have a great week my friend and thank you for stopping by.
Hugs, Celestina Marie

Mona said...

Hey Sheri,
Not a big Starbucks fan here..I love my Community dark roast made by my sweet husband..but they do have great red mugs..
Love, Mona

Mary Palumbo Collings said...

Hi Sheri, I do make my own Cappuccino every morning , but if I'm out and about , I will get a Pumpkin Spice Latte…

Hello there precious friend! I can't drink coffee (my heart races out of my chest!) so I never frequent these coffee houses. BUT if I do happen to be in one with a friend, tea is my drink of choice. Either way, to be there with a friend is my special order....

syros2js said...

Unfortunatelly, in my island there is no "Starbucks"..
Kisses, my friend!

Palomasea said...

Sheri, dear, I was truly touched by your sweet message, thank you so much. YOU are very special indeed. I love how close you are with your girls...what a blessing. I miss that Mom and I had a deep bond like this as well.
But I have so many happy memories, and they include trips to coffee shops during our shopping outings! :)
These days, my daughter is old enough to enjoy a Starbucks "date" with moi! :))
Love the red cups, and actually I have a few favorite drinks...Chai Latte, Peppermint Mocha, Cinnamon Dolce Latte...(shall I go on)..heee....
Now I'm craving Starbucks! ;)
Actually, I am enjoying a home-made chai latte, and it's yummy.
Your reindeer is so sweet! :)
I have got to get my holiday items out this fun...
Hugs to you (And I see our dear Anita, so sending out a hug to her as well!)...

I love Starbucks coffee...and just a simlply cappuccino will be great!
Nice pictures with lovely inspiration!

Barbara said...

No favorite coffee, because the nearest Starbucks is more then half hour drive, but I do have some Starbucks mugs. If I a favorite it would be the Peppermint Mocha!


Kerri said...

My favorite is White Chocolate Mocha! I looove it :)

Hope you are having a fabulous holiday season!

Dewena Callis said...

I never learned to like coffee but I love to go to Starbucks with the coffee drinkers in the family. I order their hot chocolate. I love the aromas of good coffee and love the aroma of the dark Verona when my husband makes it at home.

Has anyone tried their Christmas blend this year? I do love to buy the holiday blends and enjoy the fragrance when my husband makes it.

Joyce Olson said...

Dearest Sheri-
Yum...lets see, I love the same one as Jess-Peppermint Mocha! I have some peppermint flavored creamer that I have been using in my morning cup of coffee at home-just not quite the same-oh well. I love your whimsical reindeer-she is a lucky gal to get to live with you!!

Jenna Condon said...

I have been in love with their drinks this year, so yummy.

Leslie said...

Hi Sheri! My blog/computer is having a problem and I've been missing my blog friend. I think I missed a few of your posts.. Anyway, help is on the way and I should be get back up to speed soon.

Living in Seattle, we drink coffee a lot:) and these drinks are ALL my favorites. Peppermint Mocha, Vanilla Latte, or anything with caramel and chocolate:)

Hope you are enjoying the first week of December! xxL

Good morning darling friend and sister in DEcaffeinated coffee! Yes, I too would probably drink it if it didn't do my heart a loopty-loop! It smells so fantastic and is perfect for this weather and WE FINALLY GOT SOME SOME LAST NIGHT! I woke up to a very bright bedroom, though it's still dark outside, but all the white just shines in a reflection of light and at night, it is my favorite.

Wishing you a lovely day dearest fried. Anita

Deserae said...

I am not a coffee drinker but absolutely love the way it smells. It's probably best, I have plenty of other bad habits anyways! LOL
Happy Wednesday my friend!
~Des said...

Hello Sheri.
When I go to Lisbon.. i must go to Starbucks...its just a must.
My favorite is choca mocca.. i think thats how hey spell it. I just take short sips.. nice and hot.. with a chocolate chip cookie. or maybe their carrot cake.

Tassell, Tea pot, and life down under said...

Your choices sound delightful and comforting. Unfortunately I'm not a coffee drinker,tea is the way to go for me. My daughter used to work at Starbucks in Sydney and she seem to be the expert in coffee types and blends.

Have a good week Sheri.


Susie Swanson said...

I like the flavored ones but since we don't have a Starbucks close by I settle for it at home. This made my taste buds come alive. LOL. Hugs and love, xo

Kristie Franklin said...

My love affair with Starbucks goes back a long way! LOL My favorite is a Peppermint Mocha Iced Coffee. Although, I have tried them all. When it gets really cold outside (which I'm not sure is going to happen here) I would occasionally buy a Salted Caramel Hot Chocolate. I almost bought a Peppermint Iced coffee today but decided to wait for the weekend. :-)

~The Robins Nest~ said...

Hi Sheri!
Yes, I am back~And so thankful to be blogging again! In the last week or so I've been able to post 3 new posts. I have so much to share I hope I can get it all in before Christmas! I wish I had posted the red tree ornament before your craft night! :( I'm going to post a fast, easy, super cute cloche this week too. Thank you for stopping by and leaving that wonderful comment ❤️~ My favorite Starbucks drink is a tall latte with one pump of chocolate, no whip, no foam, extra hot! My barista girls know it as "Robin's" drink ☕️
Love and hugs,

Karen Xavier said...

I don't drink coffee... but I think I would like the peppermint mocha, I love anything with peppermint in it.
Reindeer looks pretty cute...

I love the little red reindeer Sheri!!!
You are not going to believe this, but it's true. I've never drank coffee. But if I did...It would be the eggnog or the peppermint. I love peppermint icecream. But my fav one of all would have to be a creole cream cheese. Yummmm!!!
I would like to invite you to Sherry and my Blog.We have a special post for you to see.
Merry Christmas,
Marie Antoinette
