how do you take your coffee?

We had an emergency this morning.

Of course, we try to avoid them, but sometimes they happen.

The good news is that nobody was hurt.

I threw on my boots, grabbed a bra and put it on as I ran down the stairs.

I was in the car by 8:03.

Within 15 minutes I was home.

I burst in the door and raised my hand up in the air…I had what we needed to solve the crisis.

1/2 & 1/2

It was a “creamer emergency”.



Both Ryan and I take our coffee “with cream”.

Not. Milk.

We actually use 1/2 & 1/2, but we both cringe at the thought of putting milk in our coffee.

There was enough for each of us to have a first cup, but beyond that we were in coffee crisis mode.

Ryan had to be on a call at 8:30, the dogs still needed to be fed, and both of the kids were still eating their breakfast.

I elected myself to run out and save the day.

Thank goodness Trader Joe’s opened at 8.

Thank goodness it is only a 3 minute drive from our house.

Thank goodness I know the store like the back of my hand and was also able to throw a couple of other necessities into my basket.

Seriously, I was in and out in less than 9 minutes…

1/2 & 1/2.

2 bunches of bananas.

2 boxes of breakfast bars.


2 packages of frozen Mac & Cheese.

2 packages of pumpkin bread mix.

Chocolate chips.


1 gallon of milk.

1 bag of white cheddar corn puffs.

10 chocolate chip z-bars.

I pulled into the driveway at 8:18.

Crisis averted.

Ryan got on his call.

I poured another cup of coffee…with cream.

How do you take your coffee?

home is…funny little quirks.

    Having witnessed such emergencies in your home, I can attest that urgency is the name of the game… I would suggest an extra half-and-half for the freezer!!!!! Of course, that makes much less entertaining a story… we take ours without milk, cream or other dairy products, so have a much less interesting life… Why are there no pictures of you preparing to leave the house???? just kidding…
