I have an addiction...

Bet that title got your attention. Not really a bad addiction but an indulgent one that I must have a least once a week and sometimes two. I usually only indulge after I drop Eli off at preschool on Tuesday's and Thursday's or before depending on how much time we have. I guess you would call it an addiction although I could live without it and really don't have cravings for it, unlike my hubby who cannot live without his Dr. Pepper, I think he goes into withdraws if there is not any in the house. The great wife that I am always obliges by picking some up at the grocery store and every time Nic sees him he runs to the fridge to bring him one, now if that isn't something. Anyway, back to my addiction, depending on the weather outside I either get a Mocha frappuccino or cappuccino (with whip cream and sprinkles), I said it was indulgent. There isn't a Starbucks in Claremore anymore but there is this Cappuccino store that makes all their drinks with Starbucks items or if I am in Owasso I will go to Starbucks there, both are absolutely delicious. On New Year's Day, during Nic's naptime, Eli and I had a few things to get a Target (he wanted to use his gift card), I promised him an Icee, good mom I know, so I figure I will get my mocha frappuccino while I shop, so glad I did and Eli made sure to tell Daddy we had our coffee at Target. So while I am waiting for my drink I am looking around and notice a can of Mocha Powder where you can make your own cappuccino or hot cocoa at home. They only sell this around Christmas and I didn't indulge, I must be crazy, and the fact I have no clue as how to grind espresso beans nor the fact that I do not own an espresso machine or cappuccino machine. But like I said I only drink these one to two times a week and the rest of the time I have my trusty bottle of water, so why waste the money on all these things when I can have someone that knows how to do it for me for $4.00. So if you love anything with Mocha in it you better hurry out to your nearest Starbucks because they probably will not have them for long and enjoy!

My addiction is PEPSI. I can't live or function without it. So so sad...

SO I'm having to retype my comment. It was long and I can't remember exactly what I said...

It was something along the lines of.. I don't think I'm addicted to coffee, but I am addicted to drinking warm drinks. I love my coffee in the mornings and my hot tea in the evenings!

I also asked in the previous attempt at leaving a comment... do you mix the mocha in with coffee like you do creamer?
