Today was expensive…well worth it, but still… expensive.

I registered for classes for next semester. They say “you can’t put a price on a good education” but according to my university’s balance owing that’s not entirely true now is it? lol

I decided not to go too crazy with the Black Friday sales today, but I did indulge in one fun purchase. I’ve been keeping an eye on a couple of tea companies that I’ve never bought from and finally decided to place my very first order with Della Terra Teas. My Dad keeps asking me what I want for Christmas so I figured I’d place a tea order and pass some of it to him to give to me as a gift. Oddly enough, most of what I decided to buy wasn’t even part of the Black Friday sale. I wanted to get a little selection, so I bought a bunch of the try me packs. Looking back on it, I now wish I added one of the holiday packs, but I didn’t want to go too overboard on the tea order (I already have 52teas 12 days of teas on the way and really there seems to be deals on tea all the time).

I’m taking my hubby shopping tonight for his Christmas presents. He always wants cycling gear, and his favorite brand is having their annual warehouse sale, so I am prepared to get my Christmas shopping done for him tonight. Another name off my Christmas list – hooray!

Over the past few weeks I’ve been drinking this peanut butter cup honeybush over and over and over again…rarely logging it. I do this with the cinnamon roll honeybush also- I don’t know why.

It’s funny how honeybush is frequently compared with rooibos, but I’m quite fussy with rooibos, and so far I haven’t met a honeybush that I didn’t like. Perhaps that isn’t fair, because I’ve only tried honeybush from 52teas, and their flavors are just so fun that I can’t help but love them. Seriously, peanut butter cup cheesecake honeybush! how fun is that?! Now to be perfectly honest, if I blind tasted this tea, I wouldn’t be able to come up with peanut butter cup cheesecake, but knowing what it is, I get where it’s going…and it’s going in my tummy!

I stand by the fact that education is always worth it…but then remember my student loans will follow me forever! (Still think education is always worth it :) just don’t know if I’d be so young and so foolish)

So…if you tasted this tea while blindfolded, what flavour(s) would you guess?

Ellyn – I’ve spent my fair share on education, and I’d have to agree with you – always worth it

Nik – If I did a blind taste test I’d guess some kind of chocolate honeybush. (I would most likely miss the peanut butter and the cheesecake aspects)

Nik

Interesting! Thanks for that.

That’s my mug! I’ve never really been a huge fan of Winnie the Pooh, but I like the fact that this mug is more or less clear. Plus, I can’t help but giggle when I say “ewww …I have Pooh on my mug” and people in the room gawk in horror before realizing I’m talking about Winnie. Am I easily amused? heck yeah!

A little something about my interests? – In no particular order, I love tea, makeup, paper crafting (card making), home renovations, and gardening.

As a rule, I tend to drink my tea without adding anything, but if that doesn’t work for me, I indulge in the fact that rules are meant to be broken. Yep! I’m such a rebel…sometimes I even color outside the of lines :P
