Christmas is right around the corner...

When Starbucks starts cranking out their yummy peppermint mochas and gingerbread lattes and their Christmas merchandise is in the store, then it's the official start of the Christmas season for me! It doesn't matter that the temperature here in AZ is still in the mid 80's and we're still in short sleeves.

Check out this year's bear couple all decked out in their parkas, scarves and furry boots.

I'm a sucker for their collectible bears and the peppermint mochas.

By the way, do you realize there are only 35 days until Christmas!

Yikes only 35 days, I better get crackin'...I love Starbucks at Christmas too. Of course being a Seattlite I even have a Starbucks Christmas Village Coffee Shop that sits on my kitchen counter over the holidays. I won't give in to the peppermint mochas though until after Thanksgiving because my all time favorite is the pumpkin spice lattes...Yummy!

I have noticed the fancy holiday versions of my favorite coffee drink, BUT have not ordered them. Too many WW points in that syrup that makes everything taste so dang good.

p.s. Thanks for your sweet comments on my blog earlier. It really helps to know that I'm not alone in this lousy wait. Thanks for understanding and keeping me company.
