June Blogging Challenge Day 17 - Coffee

Unfortunately (fortunately?) for you guys, today's post won't be too long since the prompt is about our coffee habits. I'm not a huge coffee drinker. In fact, our Kurieg has only had coffee in it once or twice when we've had guests. We use it primarily for apple cider, hot chocolate, green tea, and Keegan's chi tea.

I was somewhat of a coffee drinker in college, only because there was a Starbucks in our student center, which was right across the street from where I had my art classes and spent many a late night. It was nice to get up and stretch after bending over a canvas for hours and get a pick up. The closest Starbucks to us is about an hour away now, so any taste I had for coffee is gone. The few times that we stop at one, I'll get a caramel macchiato or a white chocolate mocha. My dad, who's a black coffee drinker, says I like my sugar with a bit of coffee, which I suppose is true. Even though I don't drink coffee, I love the smell. It reminds me of my dad drinking his cup or two every morning.

So what about you ladies? Did you give up your coffee when you started trying to conceive? If not, how do you take yours?


  1. i didnt give it up - but i did cut back from my daily habits. however i cant drink coffee coffee. I'm the sweet coffee girl. i order a caramel high rise from caribou 1 shot of espresso (instead of the normal 3) and an extra shot of caramel. or a caramel cooler. caramel frappe. frozen caramel from panera. the cooler/iced ones are my weakness. i kept buying the international delight iced coffee from the grocery store in the aisle by the milk etc though. still do!

  2. I gave up everything!!! Caffeine, alcohol, gluten, refined sugar, artificial sweetener!! I do still love the smell though!

  3. I'm the sweet coffee drinker alignment a caramel high increase from caribou 1 shot of espresso and an additional shot of caramel. Strong Kopi luwak is my favorite.

    Kopi Luwak

  4. Yup! Gave up caffeine. Although not when I started trying but just before my first IVF cycle. I still sneak the odd one in now and then though!
