    You pup is so cute!! How did you cut the creamer? I use Hazelnut and I use a ton. Even worse I use the sugar free stuff which has to be loaded with tons of artificial sweetner which I'm really trying to avoid! Happy Friday!

    Darn it, I need to switch my creamer, too. I use almond milk in my ice coffee, but first thing I like my (organic, all natural) creamer in my hot coffee. I. Can't. Quit. It.

    I have a creamer that is only 35 calories for a tbsp and that's just enough for me so it works but I've seen people dump like 4 or 5 in their coffee and I'm always thinking-do they know how much cals and sugar that is??? 3 months. Woot!! Hope it's doing well. I printed out my manuscript (gosh, it feels so fancy to say that) and sent my mom home with it. I'm freaking out because she'll be the first person to read it.

    ugh, I am a creamer freak too. The only way I can drink coffee!! I use the sugar free ones though (or maybe they're just low sugar, from International delight). They make me feel slightly less unhealthy!

    Happy Friday xoxo

    I am so sorry you've had such an exhausting week – I hope you start feeling peace about everything soon šŸ™‚ I drank my coffee black for almost 15 years and only recently started putting cream in it (why, I have no idea) – I am HOOKED now and it's just not good. There is SO much sugar!!!

    Pumpkin creamer is my weakness. There needs to be some sort of rehab I can go to.

    Wow, no creamer?? That's impressive. No pumpkin spice creamer?? Impossible. šŸ™‚

    Girl… I HAVE to have 2 scoops of creamer in my coffee. HAVE TO! Lol!

    And I love your dogs name!

    I can not believe you gave up creamer, that would be rough for me. I did make a switch to Soy Vanilla creamer though and don't mind it! And yes Fridays are amazing all the time but some weeks they seem so much better!

    I've gotten addicted to creamer lately, I wonder if I can kick the habit!? Your blog is beautiful by the way! :] xo

    No creamer? A life I can't imagine. Have you subbed for it or are you drinking it black?

    1. your animal is named gatsby and i heart you a little bit more. and #4 – that is me entirely. i've gotten used to the black coffee sitch (or some coconut sugar added helps make it a little sweeter without spiking the blood sugar). but that pumpkin spice? gimme. hope you had a good weekend! xo

    Go you on the book AND nixing creamer! I'm not a big coffee drinker, but when I drink it, I have to have some creamer to sweeten things up, so kudos to you!!!

    Korea weaned me from creamer because it's nonexistent there! I was fighting the whole way….but now I don't like it. šŸ™‚ Still working on the milk and sugar..

    I stopped using creamer too. Like you said, the sugar is so bad I just couldn't do it anymore! I do put milk or coconut cream in my coffee, though. I need something in there. šŸ™‚ Congrats on three months as a published author! That's awesome! And Gatsby sounds adorable.
