My name is Kristi

and I am a recovering sodapopaholic. It's been about one month since my last drink. With only three little "incidents" that I think were totally justifiable (#1- I was at a party and they had a slushy sherbety gingerale-y kind of thing and I didn't even associate that with pop until I had had a couple glasses. Whoops. #2- a few innocent sips of Gwen's sprite one night while out to dinner and #3 the day I took the dogs to the vet I stopped at Sonic and got an extra large cherry coke. Don't ask). But really coming from someone who used to stop at Happy hour at sonic about three or four times a week.... it's really kind of saying something. And I went to enrichment and they had free Dr. Pepper there. And we went to Sheyenne's house and she had ice cold Pepsi there. And, so many times I have held so strong. Go ahead. Tell me how awesome I am. Or not. Whatever, but I am a teeny bit proud of myself! Oh yeah.

P.S. I can't wait for our drive to Utah because the one "exception" to the "no pop" rule is on long car trips, as in longer than five hours. So, that will be fun ; )

You are totally awesome! See? You are on your way to giving up sugar altogether, I'm telling you what. And I totally think a sip now and then (or a bite of creme brulee at a restaurant with your husband and aunt and uncle last weekend) is totally justifiable. It just keeps you real. That's my theory and I'm sure it's right and true.

Seriously, good job!

I will have to give you a high five when we pass each other on our road trips going opposite directions. We are going from Utah to Texas this Christmas.

Oh, I'm proud of you by the way.

I just want to say congratulations as well. I love, love, LOVE soda. I have thought about giving it up, but that is all. Just thought about it. So I applaud you. See, you are growing up!
