Apparently I Need to Drink More Coffee…and a Giveaway


This week the unthinkable happened…I was basically told that I do not drink enough coffee.


Me in my natural habitat!

Me in my natural habitat!

While recording a podcast (Greetings From Storybrooke) I was a little sleepy and yawned a bit. I was also suffering from a VERY high pollen day here in Georgia (pollen is evil!) so I had the sniffles on top of the yawning. Neither of these make for very interesting podcast listening so I apologized profusely to our listeners because I typically have a dose of caffeine before recording! Unfortunately, one listener called me out on it on our blog!

My feelings were hurt! My co-host and I both apologized in the comments and apologized on our next show! I was even a bit embarrassed because I do claim to be a Highly Caffeinated person!  I even record my caffeine intake! Seriously!

A few weeks ago I saw a post from 2 Wired 2 Tired. She posted a review for a phone app called Up Coffee. I was highly entertained! You enter all of your caffeine intake over the course of the day and it tells you how “Wired” you are! It also tracks where you are in relation to being “Sleep Ready.” It can also be linked to a Jawbone Up which I was unfamiliar with.

Per the Verizon website it does the following:

  • Track activity, calories burned and sleep quality
  • Wear around your wrist in the pool or shower
  • Access your information from your mobile device and set goals

I think that this sounds super cool and like something I may have to put on my wishlist!

In case you are curious the Up Coffee app rated me as a Heavy Drinker!

Heavy Drinker

Like there was ever a doubt…

I am moving on past having my feelings hurt. I need to learn not to take EVERYTHING so seriously! So to show that there are no hard feelings I am going a COFFEE giveaway! Leave me a comment with a link to your favorite brand of coffee and next week I will send out a bag of Whole Bean Dunkin’ Donuts coffee! Entries end 4/14/14 at NOON EST.


This post is sponsored by no one! I just wanted to share my feelings and my love for coffee and cool apps with others. If you would LIKE to sponsor a post email me at

  1. Thanks for the mention and I’m glad you found the review of the app helpful. It is a pretty neat app and kind of fun to play with too watching all the coffee pour into the beaker and sloshing it around! That in itself might keep you awake. 🙂
