So we must confess and thus clear our conscious: We have in fact bowed to the great coffee bean and now own a coffee maker. We realize the utter shamelessness in which we mocked those who “need” their coffee to function and how we proudly always proclaimed to any weary house guests that “we do not have a coffee maker.” It seems since having Anni we now understand the need for caffeine much more and had recently been seen far too often at various local establishments getting iced coffees. Our cheapness kicked in and Jason decided we could make it at home for way less and thus contacted our friendly Gevalia legalized drug pusher for the 411 on getting the hook up on our own free coffee maker. So, here we are on a Sunday morning before church enjoying our iced coffee realizing that while we have sold a bit of our souls we think it tastes pretty darn good! We have no excuse, no rationale, and only hope that those we scoffed can find it in their hearts to forgive us (we will make you some nice Gevalia raspberry coffee as a peace offering next time you come around).

    It was only time before you sold your soul and became grown ups. Don’t give Anni too much too early, mom always says it stunted my growth. Yeah mom, that was it, not having relatives all under 5 feet on your side of the family ;).

    Even with Isaac, I’m still proudly holding out, refusing to drink any kind of coffee. Kate, however, has no such qualms. I’ll cut her some slack, though, since I’ve managed to avoid all of the breastfeeding duties.

    How can you NOT drink iced coffee at home?? I’m so proud of your step into bean-hood.
