Ala Moana with Special Guests

Have I told you how much I love my friends? Our plan for yesterday was to get in at least one more batch of Starbucks visits before Lent because of Malia's decision to give up EVERYTHING Starbucks for Lent. (Don't ask... I know... I still haven't decided whether I'm more amused or annoyed by this idea. Didn't really matter either way. Any excuse to go to Starbucks is good enough for me, and I'm not sure any of the three of us really NEED an excuse anyway, right?) However, what started out as just our ordinary trip to Starbucks...okay three Starbucks...developed into a belated birthday celebration for me complete with red velvet cupcakes from Hokulani Bakery, an amusing gift from Malia (haha...very funny), and special guests from out of town...Jayme, Jayme's mom, and the absolutely adorable baby Solomon! What fun!!!!

We all met up at the Sears - Ala Moana Starbucks first.

For this visit:

Our baristas: Matt & Mike

Our drinks:

  • Malia: Tall Caramel Apple Spice
  • Larisa: Tall Black Iced Tea Lemonade Sweetened
  • Mai: Grande Black Iced Tea Lemonade Sweetened
  • Gabe: Water
  • Jayme & Her Mom: Shared a Venti Cinnamon Dolce Latte

  • Jayme & Her Mom shared a Blueberry Coffee Cake
  • The rest of us enjoyed the cupcakes...guess outside food's okay

What's the matter Gabe?

Then we strolled down to the Barnes & Noble Starbucks located in the center of Ala Moana where decided to stay and have lunch.

For this visit:

Our baristas: Jayme says Joe and Schmo (we forgot to ask)

Our drinks:

  • Malia: Nada...she's bumming because they don't have the full Starbucks drink menu

Then we mozied on over to the Starbucks at Macy's Ala Moana.
