QOTD- Friday May 20

What is your "pick me up" drink in the morning? (coffee, starbucks, pop, water, tea....)

During the school year I have a 32 oz coffee mug that goes to school with me EVERY DAY! I fill it with flavored coffee (my favorites are vanilla, pumpkin, and hazelnut) and add 8-10 splenda packets!!!

In the summer I usually don't get my caffine until afternoon and then it tends to be a Frapachino or iced coffee from Starbucks OR a diet pepsi with lime YUMM!

Large sugar free vanilla iced coffe from McDonald's. I pretty much drink one every morning, and have a hard time functioning if I miss it!

I don't really like the taste of diet Coke, but I will often drink Diet Mountain Dew if I have easier access to that. I feel like it doesn't work as well as the coffee, but that might be all in my head.

DH is a diet dew drinker...he goes through a case a week!!! I agree that I don't think pop works nearly as well as coffee in the mornings!

During the work week I almost always have to stop for my Pepsi. Some days I finish it but most days I drink about 1/2 and it sits there till I go to the gym and I toss it.

During the week, I have to have coffee. We have a Keurig machine at work, and I love Jamaica Me Crazy! On the weekends, I can function fine with no coffee, but I can usually sleep till 7:30 or 8 vs 5:45 or 6 during the week.

Coffee EVERYDAY!!! Large Dunkin Donuts light with one sugar) or Starbucks when I'm dropping Savannah off at daycare and home brew the other days. Usually an iced latte in the afternoon for a pick-me-up. Not big on diet soda but will do a Diet Dew or Dr. Pepper every now and then.

Coffee.
I was making my coffee every morning but then I discovered that the coffee shop across the street now has a coffee "bar" and they individually brew each cup really slow through these fancy sieves. Normally i'm not a coffee snob but I am currently obsessed with their Black Cat from the coffee bar.
