Christmas Eve, Starbucks Ornament

One of the joys of being single I that I still get a Christmas stocking and an Easter basket.


I love this Starbucks ornament that my mom gave me. I like to think it is a chai latte and NOT coffee 😊

Jungle Jim's Cincinnati Tea


My parents and I went to Cincinnati to visit some good friends.  We had our first trip to Jungle Jim's.  It was incredible!!!  I can not wait to go there again.

They had everything there!!!!  My favorite section was the tea section in the "England" area.  Each country had teas, but they were in that countries language, so I had no idea what kind of teas they were.  In the England section of teas, I was able to tell exactly was in the teas.  Shown below is a small section of the tea section.  It was hard to decide, but my mom and I did come home with some fun teas.

They had so many fun things there, I could have spent hours there!!!!





Senic River Buelhers, Chai Latte


The other Friday I took the afternoon off to spend it with my newphew Kyle.  I needed some groceries, so while we were at Buelhers he talked me into buying him a smoothie.  He informed me that "Grandma does it", and it is not a treat, it is jsut something to drink.  I chuckled to myself and bought him a smoothie, and I got myself a chai latte.

The Chai was very good!!!  I really enjoyed it. I always am shocked at the prices that places charge for Chai Lattes.  I know that I can make almost 5 lattes at home, for the price of one in a shop.  But I guess you are paying for the ease of someone else making it for you....plus, when I purchased a drink, it make Kyle's smoothie .99.
Then after grocery shoppping we went back to my house, and then after school Ryan came over and the two boys helped me decorate my Christmas tree.
