Mmm.  Coffee.  My husband drinks his black.  No cream, no sugar, no nothing.  I, on the other hand, like my coffee to be a little fancier. I often pour skim milk into my magic bullet to make fluffy cream then nuke it for a few second to puff it up even more before spooning it onto my coffee.  Depending on my mood I may sprinkle cinnamon on top or add a spoonful of vanilla extract.
More recently, though, I have been going the way of convenience and just using refrigerated creamer.  Over Christmas I tried CoffeeMate's warm cinnamon sugar cookie, cafe mocha and peppermint mocha (my favorite).
Now that the holidays are over, I have reverted to generic french vanilla flavor.  My 13 year old has grown fond of coffee made pale with french vanilla creamer. 

I am a seasonal coffee drinker, only in the fall and winter.  Hubby can drink it year round, very strong in the morning at lunch or before bed.  I don't seem to be affected by the caffeine, which honestly, is a little disappointing. 

On Saturdays I have to get up before 5 to travel two hours for class and I set the coffee maker to make 6 cups before bed.  Some to drink while getting ready and the rest for the road. I'm always a little sad when I finish my Bubba Mug full of coffee before I get to campus.

Mmmmmm coffee. Food of the Gods. I have a Keurig. I would've never bought into the hype, but received one as a gift and it's now my favorite kitchen gadget ever.

I also MUST stop in the AM on the way to work for a bit for a cup (or two!) at either Panera or Starbucks before I go in and begin my crazy day in Socialworkland.

Hope your classes are going well!

Mmm... I LOVE my coffee and drink it all day:) I use the coffee mate french vanilla too when I'm at home otherwise it's splenda with 1/2 and 1/2 at work.

2.5 hrs to get to a class? Wow!!! Hope it's a good one:)

Enjoy your day!

I get affected if I don't have caffeine, I get a terrible headache. It doesn't seem to actually do much for me. I suppose that's what being an addict is :)
