Oh, my gosh Y’all! I am so excited to tell you about last night and also this tea!!
First: Last night’s meeting was at the Siver Dollar Winery and I just have to say, what a nice, cozy little place that was. The manager and his staff were very accommodating to our group, however, the wine was not half price like we thought it was on Tuesdays, but it was $2 off per glass. Win! They have a lovely Cabernet, and along with my appetizer of white queso and chips, I enjoyed two glasses, thanks, Dave! 😉 If you click the link, it will take you to their homepage where you can read all about their mission to build a reputation for award-winning Texas wines. I could get distracted from my post just cruising around their website, they even offer a wine club where you can have wine shipped straight to your door!
Second: The ladies of the 40/50 and over club were so much fun! I had a blast getting to know them and learn a little bit more about The Red Hat Society. I was so inspired, I think I will join their chapter! I may get in before the price goes up, I’m not sure so I will call on it today. Membership is easy, find your local chapter, ask the Queen for her member ID, and/or join on the website. If you would like to join, here is the toll-free number: 1-866-386-2850. Laura and the other ladies and I were there for a couple of hours, you know how it is when you get 3 or more females in the same room! So much to say, so many stories, just learning about each other. By the way, standard membership is only $20 per year, unless the price has already gone up, I will get back to you on that!
Last: I got to play with my new tea maker/pot this morning and the first tea I tried was, of course, the caramel chai. O.M.G.! it was sooooo good! Spicy and sweet (because I added in my Pyure sweetener) and very mild on the tongue, not bitter whatsoever. My tea was a rooibos type, not leaves so much but flowers, spices, and herbs. So much flavor with a nice blend of spices, clove notes with the slight taste of caramel that wafts up through the nose. Just awesome! Thanks to Teavana for introducing me to this tea and the magic little teapot (Perfecta Maker), the tea steeps while the pot sits on its coaster, then you lift it onto your cup and magically, with no mess, it then drains into your cup! Then you just empty out the leaves, give it a rinse and let it air dry. I love it…so easy! Plus, right now, if you go to the website and do your Christmas shopping, you get 2oz. free Caramel Truffle tea with a $50 order! Hey, I just realized I didn’t get my scoop! Just another reason to go back and visit them. Plus, I got the white tea maker with the pearlized finish, so pretty. (See yesterday’s post)
Funny little story to end my post on today, I also visited Victoria’s Secret yesterday because I earned a gift card on with my Survey Mini app, and I was pleasantly surprised to find the bralettes and some of the sports bras were on sale for $10 each! Well, the guy must have been flustered at my use of the gift card because, when I got home and got ready to try on one of my two new bras, the shoplifter tag was still attached! To both of them! How did I even get out of the store??!! Now I have to go back there too so he can take them off. Better not forget my receipt!!
You all have a fabulous day, it’s cold and rainy here, which I did not realize until I was up and seated at my dining table/desk and looked out the window! No wonder I did not want to get out of bed today! Leave your questions or comments below and enjoy your day, as for me, it won’t be on the patio!
Again, I’m not affiliated with anyone I’m talking about (yet), just trying to help everyone connect with good products, nice people and a place for everyone to gather for a good time!
