Pumpkin Spice Lattes – I’m not going there yet. Here’s why…

(Uh-oh. They’re back!)

I have an addiction to Starbucks. When I can’t buy indie (my first preference), Starbucks it is. I now buy weekly VIA boxes with as much anticipation and shaky hands as my dad and his ciggie addiction.

And then there is the whole deal with the red cups.
And the crafts.
And the giveaways.
My passionate ongoing affair with the new Iced VIA.

Out of all of those, Pumpkin Spice Lattes are my fave.

I love them so much that I couldn’t even drink them all last year. Why? Because the year before, Starbucks came out with them in early September – just like right now – and I drank two year’s worth in a month. By the time the outside air became frosty, I was burnt out. It crushed me. How could I do that to myself?

In order to regain my taste for them without cringing (because I love them so much), I skipped them alllllll last fall.

Oooh, baby, I am so craving one right NOW. But. I’m not going there yet. I learned my lesson. If I buy one now, I won’t stop. I’ll get sick of them again before trick or treat time. What is Halloween with out a Pumpkin Spice Latte???

Therefore, I am hereby declaring in this public forum that I, Mary Kathyrn Cano-Murillo, am NOT letting these lips get close to a PSL until October 15! (Okay, maybe October 1st, we’ll see).

Peace, love, and glitter!
Kathy 🙂

P.S. Check out my new novel!

Love & light,

  1. Oh yeah- I hear that. I am so hooked on Starbucks and my absolute favorite is the Egg Nog latte. I almost cried last year because I thought I was getting my last one of the season and it turned out the last day was the day before. The kind barista said if I brought in egg nog he would make it for me but I just couldn’t because then you know, I’d just look pathetic. wow that is pathetic anyway huh?

  2. My resistance to the PSL yesterday lasted from the time I walked in the door right up to the moment the nice man behind the counter asked what he could get started for me. Sigh.

  3. So funny. Our dog melvis gets hooked every year on the Starbucks holiday cookies. They save the broken ones for him so when we drive up he barks his order & they get the cookies ready. The problem is that they’re a seasonal item. He continues to” place his order” by barking furiously at the drive thru for months after they stop carrying them.
