Monday morning and the Sun is shining and it’s warm! I am therefore declaring it is Spring. Winter has been like a bad house guest and overstayed his welcome. Yes, Winter is a he. So Voila!

This morning I’m sipping on my favorite Lemon and Lavender from Celestial Seasonings.

Celestial Lavender Tea. Only pinning to remind me how absolutely tasteless this is.  Something about these flavors makes my mouth very happy.

I had a great weekend. Although my body is paying for it. I found a new French Press and a Bundt pan. Nope I didn’t have one. I try never to have things around that I may have to bake with. I made a Carrot Cake with Cream Cheese Frosting. I mixed it up a bit this time with the icing. I used heavy whipping cream instead of just milk. I used 2 cups of confectioner’s sugar, 4 tablespoons of Kerrygold butter, 4 tablespoons of cream cheese, a splash of Vanilla and the cream as needed. Let me say this was the best frosting I’ve ever had! Smooth and addictive.

I had to send a huge chunk and a big dollop of extra frosting to work with Tommy this morning for my favorite Hyatt employee! She has already scraped the bowl clean.

Saturday we hit up The Catch at their newest location where I proceeded to show Tommy how unladylike a beach girl missing her shrimp can be. I ripped those suckers open and was done in 5 minutes. He’s just staring at me…..good thing it wasn’t crab!

Yesterday I worked moving my office and setting up the gym room. The last thing was the television. I was not allowed to take down Corbin’s Spiderman and Venom poster so now while I run I pretend they are cheering me on. I also had  a mirror installed so I could track my yoga moves for form. Holding myself accountable.

Today is a good day to have a good day!

Trying Celestial Seasonings Lemon Lavender Lane Herbal Tea!

Waking up to sunshine pouring through the windows this morning. Should be in the 50’s. Great news for us. Sipping on a nice cup of Lemon Lavender Lane Herbal Tea from Celestial Seasonings. I’ve been wanting to try this one!

On opening the box, the aroma of lemon with a hint of lavender hits your nose. It’s a bright and very aromatic tea. The flavors came through very well. The Lavender tones the Lemon down and you end up with a smooth cup of a very nice herbal tea. This one is a keeper.

Apparently some people like to keep food in their cupboards so I have been forced to move some of my teas to my office. As you can see in the picture, what you can’t see is the tins and boxes stuck behind the ones in front. Or the ones still in the kitchen cupboards.

I also wanted to show you how lovely this dresser thing is. The box in the background was my mother’s. My Uncle made it for her. Speaking of Momma, she gets to go home from the hospital and my sister from Denver is going up to help her for a bit. I would love to be a fly on the wall for that,but Oklahoma is as far north as I’m willing to go.

Enjoy your Saturday and pick up a different tea today and give it a try! Let me know what you find!
