Yes, I love them.
There’s just something about knowing that I either a) scored myself a major deal or, b)(even better) got something for free, that gets me all giddy with excitement.
What can I say…I am definitely my father’s daughter when it comes to coupons and savings.
Don’t worry, mom. You’re the reason I know how to apply makeup…which is equally important, right?
So why all this talk about coupons? Well this afternoon while I was out, I got an overwhelming urge for a smoothie. I thought about just waiting and making one at home, but then I remembered that I had this in my purse.
Hmmm…should I wait 20 minutes until I’m home to make a smoothie, OR pull right into the Micky-D’s drive through for a dose of free, instant gratification?
Obviously I chose the latter, but I’d say that 90% of the time I would have chosen to make my own. I’m not going to lie; I was a little apprehensive about getting my free beverage. Do you remember what happened the last time I tried a free beverage coupon at McDonald’s? Blech.
Honest opinion of the smoothie? It tasted great. I went with the pineapple mango flavor, which tasted like pure summer. I’m very aware that it’s loaded with sugar and not nearly as nutritious as one of my own would be, but hey, that’s okay for once in a while.
On a side note, I’m pretty positive that it would taste amazing with a little Malibu mixed in, but that’s not quite appropriate for 12:30 in the afternoon now, is it?
(FYI: The smoothie was not my lunch – today’s lunch was very similar to this one.)
I’ve got to say that I have absolutely loved reading all of your comments from this morning’s Challenging Negative Self-Talk post. You guys really have some amazing things to say about yourselves, which you should all be commended for. I love seeing all the empowering thoughts…so keep ‘em coming!
Now, let’s get to today’s “Would You Rather” questions…
