They're SOOOO Adorable

I unexpectedly had today off…so I took advantage of this childless time to go shopping.  Shortly before I headed home, I stopped to get a peppermint mocha couple of  gift cards at the Starbucks drive-through.   

The barista rang them up for me and instead of giving me one of those cute little envelopes that they usually come in,  she tucked them into the most adorable fuzzy red mittens. 


I couldn’t help it, I squealed in delight. (And I’m not really a squealer type of person)  Once the barista climbed back down from the ceiling she just laughed at me.  I could tell that she wasn’t nearly as charmed as she should have been. 

I’m still going to give the gift card away, but both of those mittens are staying right here!

    We saw those the other day when I was getting a peppermint white mocha (mmmmm) and thought they were adorable, too! Definitely squeal worthy!

    Cute mittens. I usually come home with a Mocha Frappuccino.

    Isn’t it interesting how Starbucks has brought the word barista into our everyday vocabulary? Or is it just me?

    What a neato marketing tactic! What is a barista?

    I can’t believe it snowed! It didn’t snow in my neck of the woods, but it did rain, and it rained all-of-a-sudden, and we didn’t even notice until someone called and told us about it.

    CUTE! They almost make me want to go to Starbucks…almost, but not quite. We New Englanders are big Dunkin’ Donuts snobs! 😉

    You squealed? Over mittens? You should meet my wife.

    I squealed too. I have a few of them hanging on my Starbucks tree right now. Last year they came in the cutest felt holders. Now you know to look for them every holiday season. Have you seen the awesome gift cards at Target? I just want to collect them all.

    I’ve been admiring those mittens and if I get one it won’t leave me either. In fact I found a cute little card (in a scrapbooking magazine) to make to hold the gift card, that’d work. 🙂

    those are pretty cute. I would have squealed too. Sometimes we just get delightful and unexpected surprises.
