Am I the only person that thinks this is kind of silly? I drink from the tap all the tap, and nothing’s wrong with me, except for the fact that my fingers and toes glow in the dark. But that’s beside the point. This guy has to be making a ton of money selling designer water to hipsters and the like.
For some reason I can’t get the embed code to work, probably because I drink tap water. Anywho, here’s the link:
One of the serious highlights of my days is drinking awesome loose leaf tea from Teavana. I’m super new to tea and always hated it, but its potential health benefits finally got me a few months ago. I figured, “Why overdose on Excedrin if I can supplement it with something natural instead?” And thus, a tea snob was born. I started with tea bags, but one day I passed a Teavana store in the mall, tried all the free samples, and was hooked.
I still drink bagged tea from time to time if I don’t have the flavor I want in loose leaf or if I don’t have time to steep, but loose leaf is my favorite.
It was so nice to come home after vacation today and sit down with an awesome cup of lavender tea with some German rock sugar. It was exactly what I needed to help me calm down after a busy day.
Oh, and I’m addicted to mugs, so this new tea habit is my long-awaited excuse to buy them. They used to be reserved exclusively for hot chocolate (I don’t drink coffee), but now I can use them in the summer time for tea!….and still some hot chocolate from time to time.
Yesterday my brother and I flew into Nashville, Tennessee to stay with our mom for the week. Every time we come we have to stop at a cupcake place called Gigi’s Cupcakes. I usually get the most chocolatey chocolate cupcakes I can find, but since it’s been so hot I wanted something fruity.
I give you, the White Chocolate Raspberry Frappe cupcake. It has white chocolate chips on the inside and wonderfully delightful raspberry icing and toping on the outside. This is the happy life.
(Just a side note, one of the tags WordPress generated for this post was “Race and ethnicity in the United States Census”. Haha! I’ve always identified myself as being “white chocolate”, but I didn’t know it had officially made it onto the US census!)
