here are a handful things making me happy this week – a mix of products, edibles and other fun finds. perhaps this will be a regular installment… we shall see!
1. cup after steamy paper cup of candy cane lane green tea:
i love love love peppermint, especially during the holidays. this tea isn’t super pepperminty – just enough to be refreshing, and the green tea flavor is mild and pleasant. plus, it’s decaf, so i can drink it in the office all day (literally) while i’m freezing under my coat that i also happen to be using as a blanket. i’m tempted to steep a bag in a cup of low-cal hot cocoa… ohhh dear, i think i’m stopping at walgreens tomorrow morning. it’s going to happen. (it’s all about the little things.)

since it’s monday, i thought it would be fun to talk about donuts. and really, when is it not fun to talk about donuts? or doughnuts. or do-nots, as i like to call them when i’m walking by the 24-hour donut shop on my way back from the market (this happens a lot).
confession: i’m really not the biggest donut fan. i think i have one once a year, maybe. you’d think the fact that the majority of the fried and frosted delights are coated in some sort of sprinkle would ensure at the very least, top three placement in my hierarchy of favorite sweet things, but alas… their forbidden nature succeeds in keeping me away.
