A few weeks back I won this Strawesome glass straw in Robyn’s giveaway.

Don’t think for a minute it’s easy to photograph glass.  Reflections, translucency, all kinds of fun stuff.

But with the craziness of my photography trip to Mexico City last weekend

My move at the beginning of this week

I almost forgot to mention how much I love my glass straw

I actually already have a few others and use a straw almost daily.

I throw them in the dishwasher and since I only run my dishwasher every few days, having another straw is great.


Because I just have to drink from a straw when I inhale and slurp down drink my Vanilla Iced Coffees

And now I have another beauty to add to my collection.  Sweet!  Or shall I say, Suck!

I love the pretty, decorative little glass beads my straw.

Thanks, Strawsome and Robyn!

Another thing I’ve been slurping down and loving is this Bailey’s coffee creamer I mentioned I snagged

Omg. If you like Bailey’s, you have to try it.   I got the Original and it’s so good.

I am putting it in this coffee

That’s my daily go to coffeeI never tire of thee.

And with the new Bailey’s?  It’s been a party in my coffee mug.

I actually need to pick up another one of the Bailey’s creamers because some days I like a little coffee with my cream, if you know what I mean.

And some days I like a little brownie with my frosting, if you know what I mean.

Fudgy Nutella Brownies with Cream Cheese Frosting anyone?

In the morning, I sure hope the weather is like this because I have a very important Parade to watch.

And I’m glad you enjoyed my Dog Days post.  I thought those dogs were hilarious.  Like an old married couple.   I just had to post those pics.

I also want to give a very special thanks to Gabriela who featured me as her Friday Feature Blogger.  If you don’t already read Gabriela’s blog, you should!  She’s always up to something fun and she makes amazing desserts.  She also loves frosting as much as I do and is blond.  Maybe blonds who love frosting do have more fun.  Kidding. Only kind of.


1. Are there any beverages you just have to use a straw for?

I really love my iced coffee with a straw.  If I drink it without a straw, I feel like I’m sucking on ice cubes rather than coffee and that’s not nearly as enjoyable.

When I used to drink lots of mixed drinks or be out at the bars, I had to have a straw for my cocktails.  There was no way I could just drink a drink, sans straw.  Again, the sucking on ice thing.  Not a fan.

But with ice water, I don’t use a straw and prefer not to.  Go figure.

2. Have you ever tried a glass straw?

I tried my first about five years ago and I love them.  I put them through the dishwasher and although I’ve never dropped one, I haven’t had any problems at all with mine.

3. Weekend plans?

Same as my last postParade time, for sure!

Thanks for all the entries on the Summer in a Box Giveaway.  It’s a popular one!

Enjoy your weekend!

  1. I’ve never tried the glass straws but I’m intrigued because it’s just so puurrrrty! haha, and I wouldn’t have to waste plastic ones so often then. That part about blonds who love frosting having more fun was so cute :P

  2. I really want to try a glass strawnow . I used to always prefer drinking canned drinks with a straw. I don’t really drink anything out of a can anymore, but I still love using straws!

  3. I just got a glass straw recently–it’s green, which I love (beautiful green glass) but it’s much broader than yours. I have to get every last bit of my smoothie, and I can’t get all of it through that straw! Otherwise, I love it.

    Congrats on rocking your move, your trip and all the rest of it.

  4. I love straws but have never tried a glass one. I want to because they look awesome. Worried about them breaking, though?

    Straws are a must for anything smoothie or milkshake-like. Anything thick, really. :) I use straws all the time. My cousin drinks hot coffee with a straw to protect her teeth, lol.

  5. I’d never heard of glass straws!! Love the idea–adorable little decor on it, too!!

  6. I must get my hands on some glass straws! I waste so many plastic ones it’s a shame. Plus those are too pretty to pass up.

  7. I love straws too! But, I’m not too picky about when and with what I need to use them. Love the glass straw. I want one of those too!!

  8. I can’t bring myself to drink out of a straw because my mom told me a horror story about how when she was little she drank through one without looking inside it and sucked an earwig into her mouth! I always take the straws out of drinks at restaurants for that reason…just gives me the creeps!

  9. I’ve wanted a glass straw for a while now, but I’m not sure where to buy them (aside from online). Yours is very pretty!

  11. That glass straw has some serious bling! I love it.

  12. That is one lovely straw.
    I’m a big glass straw fan myself.

    Must have a glass straw when drinking a green smoothie, fruit smoothie, or frozen drink. I also use a glass straw a work (desk job) to drink my green tea out of a glass mason jar. This cuts down on the number of trips to make tea, but not the number of trips to the toilet ;)

  13. I think I would need a straw for frozen beverages like an iced cappuccino or a pina colada.
