Mingle Monday Weekly Link-Up!

Good morning, lovelies!
Is anyone else a little sleepy and super cold like I am this morning?

I am helping out a co-worker by taking the 6 a.m. shift, so I was in desperate need of coffee this morning. I hit up Caribou Coffee on my way into work for my favorite dark chocolate mocha. There wasn't a soul in line and I remember I had a $2 Monday coffee coupon.

Yup, my day is already off to a great start!
(it's the little things, folks!)
I hope yours is too.

  1. I wish I had a non-chain coffee shop close to me, so I could be a regular, but I only have a Starbucks. I love me a nonfat caramel macchiatto hot/cold, but during the holiday season I switch up to a caramel brulee latte or cinnamon dulce latte :)

  2. I only have Starbucks on my way to work. My go-to drinks are vinilla lattes and caramal macchiatos. Depending on the season I get them iced or hot.


  3. i enjoy a peppermint mocha from starbucks

  4. My favorite coffee shop has to be Sunset Coffee, it's down the street from my house, and they have all different drinks from coffee to bubble tea which I just love! Plus whatever you want them to make they will whip it up for you!

  5. I only have a Starbucks and I love me some Chai Tea Latte!

  6. I'm not a big coffee drinker, but I do love Starbucks' double chocolate chip frapps!

  7. Oddly enough, McDonalds has some bomb coffee! White chocolate mocha!

  8. I like Starbucks basically because it's the only one around. But Panera Bread's coffee is yummy too! I always get a caramel latte.

  9. I like a good trip to Starbucks and a Gingerbread Latte during the holidays. During the summers, iced coffee!

  10. I love the Old Drum. Its a little coffee shop in our town. I get the chia latte or a regular coffee with half and half. They are so good, and half the price of Starbucks. Score! But I go to Starbucks every time I'm in the city, I cant help it. ;)

  11. Starbuck's Sugar Free Vanilla Latte hot. Mmmmm :)

  12. A true Canadian Girl Tim Horton's is my go to coffee shop! Depending on the weather I go for an Iced Cap, French Vanilla Cappuccino or a Candy Cane Hot Chocolate!

    When I'm in the city I go for Second Cup and a Frozen Hot Chocolate!

  13. I like to mix it up! But lately I've been loving the Caramel Brule Latte! Also- if you add chai to a ginerbread latte, it's AMAZING!

  14. I just found you & your cute little link up today through Tuckered Up. My go to drink is a Pumpkin latte but I'm also a fan of the White Chocolate latte. Have a great week!!

  15. I love love love Costa Coffee, I may or may not have mentioned this a couple of times (i.e. repeatedly!) on my blog. My usual is a caramel latte, but I really enjoy trying out all the seasonal specialities. This winter I'm loving the gingerbread and cream latte.

  16. Anything from Starbucks of course. Holiday drinks are all I've been ordering lately

  17. It's hard to beat the Pumpkin Spice Latte. I try to go with peppermint in the winter, but I just don't love it as much as the PSL. In the spring/summer, Starbucks has a vanilla spice latte, which I love too. But still, It's just not the same...

  18. i actually dont like coffee! crazy right. i drink one crystal light with caffeine every day... strawberry or grape! xo jillian
