Awkward Giveaway {Closed}...by Jessica


Brain is on vacation; I'm stealing this idea from someone else's blog:
This week's Awkward vs. Awesome's

Awesome:
When we were all settling in to watch a movie and Ian said 'Cuddle Time!' and burrowed himself cozily next to me.

Anya's new pet ladybug named Katie (envision Anya shaking the jar and saying 'Katie, why aren't you moving????') p.s. Katie was fine, she just likes her alone time.

My new Costco quarterly visit plan. I almost have a breakdown when I have to go in there and do it...but at least that will only be four times a year.

Awkward:
Dropping Anya off at a perfectly open and available curb at school and having a teacher tell me it's not safe...and having a group of mom's looking at me 'tsk tsk'ing'..kind of like maybe they banded together and voted on having me talked to.

Eating dinner at Mtn Mike's pizza buffet and having Anya cough directly on to the baco bits under the sneeze guards. When I said 'Anya' sharply from my seat, a man standing behind her thought she needed the heimlich.

Seeing that my 'phantom pregnancy' group work photo is in the annual special Business section of the Hbg Tribune and having people say 'I saw your picture in the newspaper'...oh um great!

The J Project Awkward:
April. Everyone thinks we're not eating out as our project calendar dictated. We can't do it. The three J's have been avoiding eye contact and deleting texts so that we can avoid talking about what this month's project is. I think April is officially volunteering, getting ready for clothing swap, EATING OUT, and enjoying the spring weather month. Agree?

The J Project Awesome:
Since we're eating out this month, we think you should too. This month's giveaway is a $25 gift card to Starbucks.

My Starbucks drink of choice (now that warm weather is here) is an iced grande decaf soy vanilla latte - and I'm pretty sure that covers each box on the cup also :)

I also follow, like, and subscribe. I would tweet about you also, but I have to draw the line somewhere!

My drink is so lame Decaf Soy Latte! When I worked at the coffee house my drink got really complicated. I have since simplified...LOL!!!

I just picked up a skinny caramel macchiato on my lunch break, but usually I do the skinny vanilla latte. Why are they the only coffee shop that can hide that "sugar-free" taste from the vanilla syrup?

Thanks for the chance to win!

I have recently discovered my favorite Starbucks drink: the caramel apple spice latte. It seriously taste like someone blended up a warm slice of apple pie and added caramel. Delicious. And we have a Starbucks in our regular grocery store so it tortures me every single time I go shopping. Help alleviate the pain? :)
