For all you tea drinkers out there!

I found this great tea on the internet and loved it!

Vanilla Carmel Truffle Latte
This recipe makes two (small) servings

1 cup water
1 cup milk
2 cinnamon sticks
3 Lipton Pyramid Canilla Caramel Truffle Tea Bags(this depends on how strong you want it; I only use two bags)
2 tbsp. sugar

In a 1-quart saucepan, bring water, milk, and cinnamon just to a biol. Remove from heat and add the tea bags. Brew 3 minutes; remove tea bags and cinnamon sticks. Stir in sugar and serve immediately.

I LOVE this tea and it is quick and easy to prepare.

What is that?

I walked into my room, one morning to see my robe, where I had thrown it after my shower, laying there harmlessly on my bed where I left it.

Then I looked closer and could see that it was moving, be it ever so slightly. I lifted up the edge of it and this is what I saw.....

Somehow a small opposum had gotten into my room (which wasn't hard since the door was open!), onto the bed and under my robe! I really don't know how she does it, but she has been known to do the same thing with a freshly made bed. She is one talented cat!

My Birthday

I have the best brother and sister ever!!!!

I was sitting at home on my birthday, last Thursday, when I saw a truck pull in from the flower shop that my sister, Laura works at. I thought that the delivery person had just gotten confused and was delivering the flowers for my mom, from dad at home.

Imagine my surprise when I found out that the flowers were for me and not mom! Thank you so much Laura - they are beautiful!

Later that day I got to work. When I arrived my boss (and aunt) said that something had come for me before I got there. I immediately recognized it as an arrangement from Laura's flower shop. My mind was feverishly working to figure out who they could be from, but I was drawing a blank.

So I pulled the brown bag off (it was a covering on top of the flowers) and took the card off. I immediately started crying when I saw who had sent me this beatiful bouquet of flowers - my brother, Andy, who most of you know, is in Virginia with the Army. I was so surprised that he would have come up with this idea! It means so much to me that he was thinking about me so far in advance (he told mom and dad that he had been planing this for months!). Thank you so much Andy! They are beautiful!

New Hair style!!

What do you think? I never would have ever thought that I could have hair this curly!! I am really happy with how it turned out, though.

Every morning after I get out of the shower my hair is always really curly, so I thought that I would just experiment a little bit and see what I could do with it. I got my hair cut into a few more layers so that the curls would hold better.

All I have to do is use some curl-holding mousse and scrunch up my hair a little bit and, wha-la! Curls!
