We went to the fair last night. I felt guilty for leaving my studying, but I was going a little bleary-eyed and needed a break. Plus, it’s the fair, who can really say no to the fair!? We were actually supposed to go to some party at the coliseum, but when our good friends mentioned the fair we were all in! It was a perfect night – the weather was warm enough to wear a dress, but not so hot that it was miserable. We saw all of the animals, including the fancy show chickens, which I love. We got to pet all of the little lambs, and also the sweetest little baby bunny. The man tried to sell it to us, and for a minute I was worried because my fiancee looked on the verge of pulling out his wallet (even though I secretly would’ve loved to bring the little thing home!) The boys played a bunch of games, and I tried to toss the ping pong ball into the glass fishbowls to win a goldfish, but no luck. We went hungry on purpose and shared a funnel cake and pretzel. We also had a big glass of fresh orangeade, which was amazing! I want to try making it at home now. I’m already looking forward to next year’s fair!

This morning, it’s back to studying and finishing all of my paperwork from clinic, which is also due tomorrow. I had this little teabag on my counter and decided to try it. It was a really nice surprise that it is actually a wonderful cup of tea! It is everything that I like in a tea – malty and strong with a little sweetness. It has an incredibly smooth flavor with absolutely no bitterness at all, even after the 4.5 minute steeping. I added some sugar and it was perfect, so milk isn’t necessary (and it’s rare for me to feel that way about a tea). I am really loving this cup right now, and would definitely order more! I could see this being a go-to morning tea when I’m in a hurry, right alongside my PG Tips. Thank you, Nicole, for this one!

Just a Southern girl who loves sunshine, little dogs and all things tea!

I love animals and animal rescue. We have a rescued Chihuahua, Greyhound, Siamese and 2 Tabbies. We also foster kittens for the local humane society.

My favorite teas are sweet and malty black teas but I try to branch out and taste them all. :)

“Come, let us have some tea and continue to talk about happy things.”
