A Tall PSL

As a new(ish) Mom, it would be really helpful, actually, 100% beneficial to my mental health, if I liked coffee. I've tried, really I have. I bought a Keurig with a variety of flavored coffees in hopes of finding one that I really like. I just can't seem to find one that I like.

Until now.
I recently discovered this "little" lady.

Talk about being late to the party (story of my life). 

I am not a fan of certain parts of Starbucks but I'll keep those thoughts to myself. What I am a fan of is that starting today, I can purchase a little piece of fall heaven with this AMAZING drink.

Umm, yes please! I can't express how impressed I was with this drink. Pumpkin? Yes please! And it really gives me enough caffeine to make our mornings out and about a little less "oh, look at the poor frazzled lady" and more "damn, she has it together!". 

I'm hoping to keep my whits together and not become someone who must have her morning Starbucks or she can't function.

But if I do become "that mom" then I can't imagine any other drink to bury my Mom woes in than a Tall PSL. 

Or could I? 


  1. Pumpkin Spice is seriously the best! It makes Fall that much more awesome.

  2. I was exactly the same way. I didn't start enjoying coffee until recently. I'm VERY picky though, if it tastes too much like coffee or has a after taste I hate it. I found that I really International Delight's hazelnut and chocolate caramel creamer. I can't have any other!

  3. I LOVE PSL!!! They are amazing! Long ago I only drank those or mochas -- no "real" coffee. Since becoming a mom and a daily trip to Starbucks a little harder to manage I've converted to coffee. I've found the starbucks "mocha" coffee or folgers mocha swirl with peppermint mocha creamer to be really close to those yummy starbucks drinks!

  4. Pumpkin spice is the best!! You can also order it with an extra shot of espresso for an extra jolt;) I order it nonfat, no whip so I don't feel so guilty indulging;) the caramel brûlée is heaven in a cup!!

  5. Peppermint Mocha is my jam!!

    Ok after fall has come and gone (too fast I am sure! Boo!) try a tall skinny vanilla latte (I drink decaff, it tricks me every time!). See if that is something you will like! The only calories are from the milk and it is my year round have!!
