It is beyond cold here in Utah. Like, going outside is painful! I usually feel like the holidays go by so fast but this year I’ve really been able to take my time and stop to enjoy the small moments. We’ve shared tones of great moments with friends and family. We did Thanksgiving at my house this year with a mixture of family members and it was tons of fun. There are tons of holiday activities to do here in Utah and we have definitely been taking advantage of them. Since I’m pregnant, I probably won’t go skiing with the kids, maybe a little sledding, but I am more than happy to relax in the lodge by the fire with some yummy hot chocolate!
I wanted to share a super yummy drink with you guys that I get almost every time I go to Starbucks during the winter time. It has several different names – I use the name “The Medicine Ball”. It is so yummy when you’re sick or you want a hot drink but hot chocolate just won’t cut it for you that day. It really helps me when my throat is sore or I feel a cough coming on. A real lifesaver for me during the winter! Here’s the recipe,
1 Venti cup with half hot water and half steamed lemonade.
1 bag of Teavana Jade Citrus Mint Tea.
1 bag of Teavana Peach Tranquility Tea.
Packet of honey.
Pump of peppermint (optional) but DO IT!!
