I’ve always enjoyed coffee but never considered myself a coffee drinker. I use to think of it more as a treat to myself when meeting a friend or out for brunch. I never had a need to own a coffee machine (although I got a few when I got married) because I never made any!
But……then came Princess Peach. At the beginning it was the lack of sleep but I’m addicted. I’m addicted to coffee. When Princess Peach was 3 months old we purchased a Keurig machine because expensive Starbucks trips were racking up. When Princess Peach was a newborn we would visit Starbucks daily. Yes, daily. That was a minimum $4.00 a day, at least.
So then we purchased this Keurig machine and at first that sufficed. I would brew myself one coffee at home a day and I was happy. And then it happened. Princess Peach started waking up earlier, and earlier and I was more tired. So to start my day I brew myself a large Keurig coffee that goes into a thermos. I literally gulp it down. I can’t drink it fast enough. It is sooooooo good!
But then we somehow end up at Starbucks on a daily basis. So now not only am I buying Keurig K-cups but Starbucks is again sucking me in!!!
One of my favourite apps out there is the Starbucks app. O.M.G. Its amazing. And addicting. So we go to Starbucks get a venti vanilla non-fat coffee misto in the afternoon for my pick me up.
I know that somewhere down the road I will have to end my relationship with coffee. As much as we love each other and I rely on it as a daily basis one day it will have to end.
But until then, my dear cup of Joe. I cannot wait until our date tomorrow.
