Sidebar... And coffee confessions

Do you like the changes to my sidebar? I changed to titles to everything [ex: "About Me"] to images, including a picture and a fun font. Does it match the header well enough? Does it work? Is it too much?

Anyway, I have an awful confession to make-- I've started drinking instant coffee.


I know, its awful. But its much more convenient for me in the mornings. I make hot chocolate for Hubby each morning, so I already have the water boiling. And with my new CHOCOLATE RASPBERRY creamer, it actually tastes fantastic. I'm not a huge chocolate fan, but the raspberry is heavenly. Pure perfection.

Though, now that it should be getting warm and staying warm, I'll be having lots of iced lattes. I can brew lots of espresso at one time and then put it in the refrigerator until I need it.

I feel like I should be giving an "Erica-Update," but there isn't much to say at this point. Things have been staying the same. No new things. She's continuing to burst out with her vocabulary and speech skills. Each day she seems more and more like a little girl, not a babbling baby. My parents came over yesterday for a visit, and b/c Erica was on her home-turf, she was really talking a lot for them. My mom commented on how she's such a big girl now.

Albeit, a very cranky big girl. I slightly wonder if she's getting the sore throat that I have. Hmm...

I shudder at the thought of instant coffee, but then again, I'm not a Mommy! Mommy's get to have shortcuts like that.

And iced coffee...I might have to think about making some now that it's getting warmer.

INSTANT??? Girl, it's always, always worthy to brew a pot..

Kinda like my other mantra:

Sometimes it's worth paying $2 for a bottle of wine..

I've been drinking instant flavored coffee for a while now. I'm the only one who drinks it and it's so much easier for me to just make it a cup at a time. :)
