Eat from the Pantry Challenge Update

Things have gone really well with my Summer Eat from the Pantry Challenge.

Until now.

I have made due, gone without, and substituted without any complaints.  I have emptied a lot in my pantry and freezer and it feels great to know that the good deals I found aren't going to waste.

Today, however, is the last day I go without.  Why, you ask?  Why couldn't I stick with this challenge for a month?  What could be so difficult that it would make me run right back to the evil empire (WalMart) so soon?


This beautiful liquid gold that makes my mornings just a little better.  It reminds me of all the good things about getting out of bed at 5am.  And trust me, I need reminded of that.  Every. Single. Day.

I have been out of my favorite creamer for three days now.  My coffee has been sad and lonely and unenjoyable with just skim milk.  My creamer is the best 2 WW points I spend all day.  By far. 

So, if you see me at the evil empire today, feel free to call me a loser.  I understand. 

I just don't care....because I'm off to have my coffee.

Oh, you're not a loser. You tried. I am not a coffee drinker unless it has that sort of creamer in it as well.

I think anyone with kids can totally relate. I don't think I could function without my coffee. And I feel like my creamer is my little treat everyday. Sometimes I think about my cup of coffee before I go to sleep at night :)

It really is the best creamer. And Erica, sometimes I think about it before bed too!
