I am with you 100%. My husband got me the gift card...as a gift ;-) and I have been using it since. I LOVE that wrap too. My 3 year old and I go on 'dates' there when my older daughter is in preschool.
PS. did you know that if you bring your own mug in tomorrow, you get free coffee?
PPS. I always feel the guilt of loving starbucks, but so is life.

Starbucks provides its employees with health care, other benefits, and a rate of pay that is closer to the poverty line than most local coffee shops. The push for local shopping is largely one driven by small local businesses, however those small local businesses are themselves seeds for large corporate entities. Regionalism may be the 21st century's answer to Nationalism, and it's not a good thing. I like to consider the political and economic goals of companies I support rather than just wondering if my money's going to stay in town.

I don't drink coffee, but am drawn to Starbuck's for their healthy breakfast options. You're right, they are so good. (Although I always thought those were roasted red peppers in the wrap, not tomatoes! :) ).
