A Week Of Thanks: Day 2 – Cheap Addictions

I know most blogs are going to write about how thankful they are for their family and friends during the month of November. I mean, I love reading those sort of stories. However, I woke up thinking about a much different angle. My version will be about the little things I’m thankful for in life.

On Monday, I kicked off my “Week of Thanks” series. The opening topic was simple – low expectations. I’m no June Cleaver and proud of it!

Here are the topics. Come back each day to see what I mean:

    Day 2 is all about cheap addictions. I’m thankful that the only thing I’m really obsessed with is a Black Tea Lemonade from Starbucks. I mean – it’s better than being batty about… harder substances. Wouldn’t you say?

    Yes, drinking this tea bangs my budget a bit… but who cares!?

    For weight reasons, I no longer drink two a day. At one point this year, I was literally busting the seams open from my pants. I couldn’t figure out WHY because I’m not much of a snacker. I don’t munch on chips during the day or anything – which is what my brain immediately went to when trying to solve this problem.

    Then I realized I was sucking in an extra 400 calories a DAY (sometimes 800 calories) through a green straw.

    So…I’m the girl who drinks her weight. It could be worse. They could be spiked! 🙂

    Your turn – what cheap addiction do you have?
