I love this sentiment from Rupa Shevda’s newest set for Gina K.  It just cracks me up because it fits me to a T!  See….I used to not drink coffee.  I was a coke girl.  I used to have a vanilla coke from Sonic every day.

And then one day about 2  or 3 years ago….it just started making me nauseous.  I have no idea why. But I still cannot drink soda without getting nauseated.  And that’s hard sometimes!  There are days when I would just love to pop open a can of cold coke…..but I try it and after I sip I know if I drink more of it…..I’m gonna be sick.  Totally weird.

Ever since….I’ve learned to drink coffee.  Because this girl needs her caffeine!  It seems to really help with my allergy headaches….isn’t that great??!?!  That’s how my allergies present…when they act up (which is most of the time here is allergy-hell that is Texas) I get sinus headaches, etc.  Fun times.  So I drink coffee.  Lots of it.  No really, I just have a travel mug every morning.  And right now, I am in heaven because Coffee Mate’s Peppermint Mocha is BACK!  And thanks to the blog reader who informed me you can freeze it….I’ve started a back up stash in my garage freezer for after Christmas when the discontinue it!  You can read all about my love of Peppermint Mocha {here}.

Anyway, I found this great paper by Bo Bunny at a local scrap store last Thursday and I decided it would be perfect for this….bright and fun!
