I LIKE it!

I said if they ever made this in red, and they have.














And so... My Beloved.

What more needs be said?

I can't explain it. There's something about a special mug that makes it's contents taste that much better!
The contents I like to fill my mug with?
Chocolate.
Combined with coffee.
Add real whipped cream and top with cinnamon and you have something VERY good.
Only - if "one" (namely myself) drinks favorite contents often... not a great idea.
For obvious reasons.

I don't believe that concoction can be topped, but try me.
For the first time in my life I am thinking about becoming addicted to caffeine, and I was wondering if any of you have a favorite tea that is not decaf? I'm kind of a fruity tea person and I'm fairly sure that Peach tea isn't going to do for me what coffee and chocolate will ;-)

So if I can fill the mug with something to make me smile (and stay awake), the next question is whether the Red Mug makes me happier?

Or thinking of the giver?

I am a tea drinker but only prefer black teas. Constant Comment is my tea of choice. You might try it in decaf.

I am a HUGE fan of Trader Joe's Earl Grey Tea (you feel sooo Anne Elliot when you drink this stuff!). I usually add a little sugar and skim milk (or 1/2 & 1/2) to mine. But when I'm in the mood for something different, I have found that a little peach juice really complements the orange bergamot in the tea. :-)

Anyhoo, this stuff helps me keep my eyes open ;-)

Momma Bear,
I think you might have something there... it sounds like my kind of thing. No TJ's here, but I could have my people in Cali send some to me maybe?

Hmm...

Momma Bear said...

Analene,

I think you can get Earl Grey elsewhere, TJ's is just what is convenient for me (we go there OFTEN....my boys like the free balloons). ;-)

Love the pic :) And the red mug...

I like morning thunder by celestial seasonings, with milk or without.

I like mint tea and add just a little bit of sugar occasionally.

Momma Bug said...

Oh! I'm so glad I have some ideas to try!
Now... if I can just figure out how to drink a cup before it gets cold:-)

It just so happens that I should be mailing off your gift here soon, so I could pick up some Tea from Trader Joe's and include it in the package. :)

Loving you,
ME

Well, I have to throw my two cents in here, though it looks like some people agree with me...

Earl Grey! But it has to be Twinings brand! And for a little change, Lady Grey...it's got a little more pep! And it must have a good bit of half & half and a dash of sweetener!

There you have it. Enjoy!

P.S. I love your mug. And I know just how to feel. Special mugs = special drinks!

Kimberly said...

I have to disagree with everyone! Sorry, nothing beats the drink you described in your post! What could compare to chocolate:)! Kimberly B.

Momma Bug said...

Well thank you Kimberly!

One for OUR team!!

Thanks for your comments friend, I hope you are keeping afloat and enjoying the little moments. You are always so graceful in your roll as wife and mother :-)

Love to you!

You know, this great friend of mine once suggested eating Rocky Road Ice Cream out of a mug... You might give it a try. ;-)

Momma Bug said...

And it's a big mug too! Definitely a good one for Rocky Road ice cream :-)

I hope you see Shauna and give her a hug for me, will you? Maybe I'll send you a hug from me through her too!!

Love you dearest!
