So I am finally feeling like I am back to normal. I am working on getting my energy back which has been the biggest problem for me. While I was sick and sipping on my favorite sugar cookie herb tea (celestial seasonings does great holiday herb teas like gingerbread) I thought "wow, if I weren't LDS and didn't believe in the word of wisdom I would totally be a coffee drinker" HA. Reasons....I love sipping of hot drinks like herb tea and hot cocoa. I love how it warms me up. I love traditions. I could totally see myself sitting on the back porch every morning, reading the paper, while I drink my cup of warm yummy! (ok...I know with my busy house this would never happen, but we are playing what if...and in my what if I have plenty of time to sit and read the paper each morning). I am also very social...so I can see me and my girlfriends meeting up at coffee shops to chat for a bit. Also, I LOVE the smell of coffee (unless I am pregnant, then I can't even walk down the cofee aisle, which happens to be the cereal aisle at most grocery stores. What are they thinking?) Thankfully my desire to be righteous and obey FAR outweighs my desire to drink coffee (also I have heard it tastes terrible!) So do you have any secret sins you would love to do if you weren't choosing the good life? If you weren't LDS is there something you would do? Maybe you would love a glass of wine with dinner (no desire there for me) would you want to be a stripper? (I hear they make good money) Or perhaps you would want to run around killing people (that thou shall not kill thing puts a damper on that one) I don't think for me is is so much the coffee itself, I think it is more the traditions behind it that are appealing to me. So I guess I will go whip up some yummy white chocolate cocoa! We were given a great hot chocolate maker last year and it has been one of my favorite gifts! I hope you don't think less of me because I am a potential sinner, but really, aren't we all!?
