And SWEET TEA. OMG the sweet tea. From a carton at the grocery store, from McDonald's, I didn't care. I just wanted it. I can distinctly remember waking up on a number of occasions at 2am, and being in bed thinking, "wow....I would kill to gulp down a sweet tea right about now". Totally normal behavior at 2am, right? I still like a sweet tea now and then, but nothing like those urges.
With Liam, I skipped over the sweet tea and headed straight for the Dr. Pepper. While I thought Dr. Pepper was ok before, once I got hit with that craving, it was like the best thing in the world. If I walked into a restaurant that served it (which is sometimes hard to find!) it was like I had hit the lottery! It's probably a good thing that the place I work only has Pepsi products in the vending machines, I at least stood a chance of being able to resist the urge to down one every day.
The other thing I fell in love with? Little Debbie Oatmeal Creme Pies. I know, I know....so weird and random. But I was
Why am I thinking about all of this? Well, because one day last week, it was like deja vu....there I am in Target, grabbing a gallon of milk out of the cooler, and I turn around to find the same type of display, once again....Creme Pies on sale!! I stood there, staring at the rack. I hadn't had any since I was pregnant; I deserved some, right? Before I could regret my choice, I threw a box in my car and raced to the register. Embarrassing moment confession: I ripped into the box while still in my car, and proceeded to eat one while driving. Second confession: it was still so, so, so very good. I had another one later that evening.
That box is long gone, it stood no chance against me. Lesson of the week: I cannot buy those to keep in the house, I just don't have the willpower to not eat 2 at a time. But it does prove that both of my cravings from my pregnancy with Liam have stuck around....I still feel giddy inside when I see Dr. Pepper anywhere that I can order it.
