What is your mom worth?

As Tony and I are trying to determine where we want to live when we move back to our home province, we weigh out the pros and cons of each potential town/city.

Must haves include French schools (or immersion at the least) for Sacha, teaching opportunities for me, and somewhat appropriate housing prices.

The discussion of other perks led to this conversation:
Me: Does Camrose have a Starbucks?

Tony: Umn, I don't know.

Me: I really want to live where there's a Starbucks.

Tony: But Peace River doesn't have a Starbucks.

Me: Yeah, but my mom is there.

Tony: So what you're saying is that you'd trade your mom for a Starbucks.

Me: NO...I'd trade a Starbucks for my mom.


  1. Hilarious! Starbucks or your mother? That is a tough choice. I guess you must consider the following: Can Starbucks babysit Sacha? Does Starbucks give good hugs? Is Starbucks as sweet as your mother (alright I guess that one is a little tricky...)

  2. Hmmm, I'm almost embarrassed to admit I don't like Starbucks.

    Come slap me, please.

    I can't help it. I'm just a black coffee kinda girl.

  3. Ah, You love me that much, huh. Well I would trade Starbucks for you anytime, I MEAN ANY TIME! lol

  4. HA! Unfortunately, as a daughter I can understand. As a mom, that hurts. (((((HUGS))))) sandi

  5. my SIL has a Saeco espresso machine...the same one that Starbucks uses! get this...she got is as a bridal shower present from her future MIL!!! this thing is worth $1800!!! crazy!

    maybe you should put one on your Christmas list! ;-)
