It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas

'Tis the season to be jollyy. Okay, yes. I'm just a LITTLE excited for Christmas. ;)
Lately I've found a new addiction. Hot tea. Maaan that stuff is good. My choir teacher has two huge drawers in her studio that are full of every flavor of tea imaginable. She has a pitcher of water that heats up at the touch of a button, and another for cold water. Every time I go to her studio (which became more and more frequent for a while) she offers me hot tea. I found the most AMAZING kind of tea the second time this happened. Gingerbread Spice. Lemme tell ya folks, it is YUMMY.
All of that to say, I've had throat problems this past week and decided to go buy myself some hot tea so I wouldn't use all of my teacher's tea. I bought three boxes of the Gingerbread Spice and one other box made especially for throat comfort. Along with that I also bought some throat lozenges. :) I'm a happy camper.
Today when I got home from school I practiced cello for a bit, and then I got in my "hot beverage mood." I had run to grab my check from work during the day and a fellow employee was there and gave me some marshmellows to put in some hot chocolate. But these aren't just regular marshmellows. No sir. They were dipped in powdered sugar and milk to make a frosting, and then dipped in crunched candycanes!

How cute is that!? And since I LOVE hot drinks...I made some hot chocolate, put the marshmellows in, and used my favorite mug to do so. :)

I love Christmas time. :)
