I wasn’t going to say anything and I normally don’t chime in when it comes to random happenings on the interwebs but…

People are seriously mad about the Starbucks Red Cup? I’m still trying to understand how the color of a cup takes away the meaning of Christmas. That’s the most comical thing I’ve heard all week! I mean…why would you be offended? What did that pretty, red cup do to you? To be honest, this is probably one of my favorite cups from Starbucks. I get it. It’s plain and red—but it’s also bold and fun!This photo sums up my sentiments…EXACTLY!

The fact that the color of a cup is even an issue (especially to Christians) is troubling and still comical at the same time. There is too much going on in the world to allow the color of a cup dictate my Christmas, my Christian faith, my holiday experience, or my indulgence in sugary skinny coffee drinks this holiday season. Here are more reasons why I feel this whole “red cup” fiasco is silly:^tfw

Starbucks is all about :

Bringing people together, helping provide education and employment opportunities and making a difference in people’s lives – it’s all part of being a good neighbor and a sustainable company.

Starbucks include:

  • Opportunity for Youth
  • Community Stores
  • Starbucks Foundation
  • Community Service
  • Veterans and Military Support
  • Diversity and Inclusion
  • Starbucks College Achievement Plan
  • Farming Communities
  • Create Jobs for USA

Hey #StarbucksRedCup, it’s not you. It’s THEM! With that being said, I’m heading over to Starbucks to indulge in a “skinny” Chestnut Praline Latte. In a RED CUP!

Starbucks coffee development manager describes it as being, “medium-bodied with soft, velvety notes of dark chocolate, subtle hints of peppery spice, and sweet, mandarin-like citrus for […]

It is holiday season — one of my favorite times of the year! Christmas decorations, family time, peppermint bark, egg nog (Evan Williams is my fave), fruit cake, and the list goes on! I know I’ve been an “awful good girl”, but what I did not know is that Santa was going to visit me […]
