Free coffee, Earth Day and Good Friday...

This Friday, April 22nd, is Good Friday. I love this.

And it's also Earth Day.

Starbucks is giving you free brewed coffee or tea - if you bring in a mug from home {any kind will do, although may I suggest you bring a travel mug?}. This free coffee day is in honor of Earth Day, not Good Friday...incase you were wondering :)

Say, though, that you stop by and forgot said mug to get free coffee. No worries, their travel mugs will be 20% off to help you out. Pay for that, then get free coffee. Win. Win.

It's a good plan all around, especially since I bet your husband will be home from work {for Good Friday, mind you, not Earth Day} and you can sneak out and go to the YMCA and then go to get free coffee. Another win! I mean, I don't know who would do that though :)

To get more ideas of things you can do to celebrate Earth Day, check out this website!

*And incase you didn't know: Christians celebrate Good Friday because God's love is so great for us that He sent His perfect Son to die on a cross for the sins of the world. Good Friday is good because it's the day that Jesus obeyed, and loved, and sacrificed more than we'll ever, ever be able to comprehend. But friends, it doesn't end there. Good Friday only has part of the good news for us! On Easter Sunday, Jesus rose from the grave! He conquered sin and death. Once, and for all! Now that's something to celebrate! {And not just with free coffee}*

Um, just FYI, it also happens to be my birthday. I think that's why I get free coffee. Just sayin'. You can celebrate that, too!
Thanks for letting me in on this!
