Funny Story...

My husband Tim is on vacation this week so he has been picking up the slack and helping out with our son and around the house.
Our son Timothy needed to go to Target to get some things for Bible camp this week. My husband asked me if I needed anything and if I wanted to go. I told him no but he better take his cell phone just in case. Well, of course you know I thought about it and ended up calling him with a WHOLE list of things JUST as he was walking into the store!


We have a Starbucks in our Target so I asked him to look at the counter to see if it was busy-He said it wasn't and after he finished checking out he would go over there and call me because my drink order was hard to remember. So he gets to Starbucks and calls me and he is repeating to the girl at the counter what I am telling him on the other end..."Iced... tall... in a grande cup..." When the Starbucks girl pipes in and says," Is that Robin?" and my husband shakes his head yes and she said, "We just call that the Robin's special, next time just say that." :)



I know- I feel like a celebrity, I have a drink named after me at Starbucks!


Autograph anyone?


Have fun out there today!

  9. Lori: My drink is either a iced tall in a grande cup, one pump of chocolate, 1 shot of coffee, nonfat with extra ice.
    If it's cold outside I get a hot, tall one pump of chocolate, nonfat, no whip, no foam. They call it basically milk at Starbucks!

    Jan: Would that be the Ron Robbin's with the daughter Ronnie Robbin's Nest reunion? :) This cracks me up!

    Mary:TOO funny!

    Mechelle: Takes one to know one. ☺

    Pam: I laughed when I read your comment because when I wrote it I thought the same thing..."GEORGE!"

  10. That is fun! We actually had the treat of Starbucks today. Our closest one is in a Barnes and Noble, so I also got a new book to read while on vacation next week. Do tell what a Robin Special is....

  11. I had a friend that ordered a "Grande Breve Latte" so I ordered one, too. I fell in love. It was years before I found out that I was having a latte made with half and half. No wonder it was so lovely and rich. I still have one when I want a real treat.

  14. I love how you order a tall in a grande cup. I do the same thing, but it is a grande in a venti. I order coffee, whip cream, and lots of ice!! Yum. Congrats on the celebrity status -- you deserve it.
