A few months ago I bought a new coffeemaker… kids that were home visiting told me I needed a newer one, one that could be programmed the night before. So I did get a new one; Stacy kindly took me to Sam’s and I bought one, because she says I want to be just like her when I grow up! I go through spurts of using it and lately I’ve been in the on again mode of drinking coffee. I’m way more into what goes IN the coffee rather than the coffee itself; I’ve never really been a true coffee lover as in loving the coffee and drinking it black.

This is what my new and updated coffeemaker looks like and even though I’ve had it a few months, I’ve never made a full pot yet. I like this one because it has a button to use for when you only make 1-4 cups, it heats the water more since you aren’t filling the carafe all the way up.

Yesterday when I shopped I bought this, my absolute very favorite creamer ever I think!
That’s peppermint mocha in case it’s too small to read. I also realized yesterday that I’d been drinking coffee for quite a few days in a row and I don’t usually do that because the caffeine gets to me after a while. I had a horrible headache, felt really sick last night and had to go to bed. Today I feel like I’ve been run over by a truck! I read an article last week that said that even decaf coffee still has caffeine in it, I think I knew that already and that’s why I try not to drink it every day. I wish I’d remembered that last week when I made coffee every day. So I’m laying off for a few days to get it all out of my system and then maybe get back to only having coffee a few times a week……maybe I should sing the song this way, “I love the java jive and it doesn’t love me!”
Today I have an out of town dentist appointment, errands to run, a meeting or 2 at the church, and my Sunday school class is serving supper so I’ll be out of pocket for a good bit of the day. I’m behind on blog reading again and I’ve been tagged for something I hope to get to later today or tomorrow! Hope your Wednesday is a good one.

What’s your favorite creamer if you drink coffee?

    I drink only decaf usually and it doesn’t take much for me to get that “i need caffeine” headache.

    Love the new coffee pot. Once in a while i like a little pumpkin spice creamer along wtih my half and half. Mostly I just like it plain.

    have a good holiday!

    Oh, I’m envious of your new coffee maker! It’s beautiful. Yes, beautiful. I’m a coffee lover, too, but I get headaches when I DON’T have my coffee, so I guess that means I’m an addict.

    Don’t worry about getting to the meme. They’re supposed to be fun:) It took me about a week to respond to my tag!

    I take my coffee black. But I love the flavored coffees – hazelnut, chocolate truffle, caramel drizzle, stuff like that. And I only drink one or two cups a morning. Never all day long like some people do.

    Hey – that looks familiar! 🙂 Glad you are enjoying it. We’ve had ours for two or maybe three years now (Christmas present to ourselves) and it’s still going strong. We make coffee 6 or 7 days a week, and almost always a full pot. You know Tim loves coffee, drinks it black and all day. Me, I try to just have one or two cups a day. I don’t think I could quit cold turkey. I know I’d have a horrible headache.

    I bought some gingerbread creamer a couple of weeks ago. I still have a Vanilla Caramel Brownie flavor (International Delights, not Coffeemate). After I chug those down, I’ll probably get a peppermint. I can’t remember if I like the eggnog or peppermint one more 🙂

    And we’re just alike. I only drink coffee to be sociable. It has to have so much stuff in it that it doesn’t truly taste like coffee. I do like the smell now. I used to really hate it; I thought it smelled burned and bitter 🙂 Oh, and Tim calls what I have in my coffee cup “hot chocolate”, since he says it is not really coffee!

    Gingerbread! I don’t like the peppermint…it makes me nauseous.
    Try decaf coffee mom. You can still use your creamer and have something hot to drink in the mornings without the headache. I get headaches now that I’m drinking decaf because I’m used to the caffeine.
    Oh, you should buy some Starbucks Decaf Verona — Good.

    Oh, and I like your new coffee maker…I just don’t know how to use it!!

    Love the coffee maker. Love coffee. 😉 I’ve been addicted to the stuff since high school when we cooked it in a pot on the stove. I loved the sound and smell of percolating coffee. As for additions, I use just plain old Half & Half although I used to be able to find a Creme Brulet flavored CoffeeMate that I would get every so often. I guess it didn’t go over well because I haven’t seen it in a long time.

    This is the creamer that started it all for me – I’m a solid coffee drinker, but never had creamer til last Christmas this showed up at my sewing group. Won me over completely and I bought 3 bottles of it as soon as I saw it on the shelves again.

    I have French Vanilla, Peppermint Mocha, and Gingerbread in the fridge right now….I love this time of year!

    I’m on my second Peppermint Mocha creamer–how funny that it’s your fave too!
    My mom has that coffee pot, but I didn’t realize that it had a button if you’re only making about 4 cups. That’s really neat.
