Summing it Up...

Now, that I'm way on the wrong side of sixty, I feel that being true to self is important. "I yam, what I yam." Kindness and smiles are to be given away. Women are strong. Men are more vulnerable than we believe. Husbands may come and go...but one thing I know for sure is that I will NEVAH live without a corgi or coffee in my life if I can prevent it. Come piles of dog fur or hot water!

Temptation Wednesdays...a new meme?

My MIL and I have made a new year's resolution. We "force" ourselves to go through the drive through at McDonald's each and every Wednesday. Why, you ask? Because they have free samples of Chocolate Mocha or Caramel Frappe's that day!
We've gone the past two weeks, and I'm telling ya'....if you haven't gone, get! Mark your calendars, post a memo, put a sticky on your steering wheel...just remember to go and get your seven ounces of espresso laced with whipped cream and chocolate/caramel swirl. Yeah, yeah....it's heavy in calories....but once a week, it's a sinful piece of heaven! We're hooked. We wish that they'd come out with a cheaper, seven ounce size, like the sample. We think that it's "just" enough. Hint, hint...that's a suggestion McD's corporation, if you're reading this!

Sounds like a great idea - now, if they make a McMini mocha priced mini, it might catch on!

I wish it was hot chocolate! I don't drink coffee.

Hmm, most check to see if they have this at our McD's. I don't think once a week will hurt anyone. and no more than 7 ozs.
Thanks for letting us know about it.

Gosh, they don't have that free offer here! No wonder you and your MIL are going each week -- it sounds delicious.

But do you have to buy a burger to get your free coffee? That would be a deal-breaker for me. I like Classy's suggestion for a McMini Mocha--clever.

I actually love McDonald's coffee, but I haven't seen any free samples around here....I think I should go next Wednesday just to be sure!!!

LADY JANE'S EMPORIUM said...

Well Missy...lol...almost snowed in here...so craving a McDonalds mocha (gee thanks)...so since you know so much about McDonalds...AND since you've got connections with their Corporate office...ask them if they deliver! Heck...I'll pay for a FREE mocha if they do!
And since you are so great at getting the word out...could you let folks know...
