"Tea"tally Terrific


For my Birthday last weekend my BFF Tracy and I went to Infini-Tea, in Antioch, and had the "Royal Treatment"!! It was a feast for the taste buds, eyes and nose - I love smelling all the teas you see, as well as, drinking them!! LOL!!

After tea, we of course cruised to Hannah's to check out the latest and greatest in scrapping goodies and got the extra bonus of meeting some on-line scrapping buddies, Carla and Cathy, in person!! Then it was on to Archivers to crop for the day. Ahhhh - Heavenly!!

Tracy and I played with our new Scarlet Lime Kits (droooool!!) at Archivers and Tracy made this awesome LO in honor of our lovely day.


AND...yesterday we headed back to Infini-Tea again, this time with the kiddies, so they could experience the "Royal Treatment Jr." and keep Mom (me) sane while they are home on Spring Break!! Miss Tracy, aka my BFF Tracy (she's Miss Tracy to my kids you see and of course her hubby is Mr. Tracy - LOL!!), was there to help me teach my children the finer points of tea etiquette, how to eat finger sandwiches, and basic Manners 101!! Overall, I was very proud of my children and their behavior, but alas my dear sweet son, Zach, graced us with our most memorable moment - His trip to the bathroom at Infini-Tea!! Upon his return to the table, Miss Tracy mentioned how quick he was. I of course followed up with the ever popular MOM question - "Did you wash your hands??", to which Zach replied, "No, it said only employees can wash their hands. That's what the sign said." So serious he was, that Miss Tracy and I couldn't help but bust out laughing. He's a good little sport and knows his Mom and Miss Tracy very well, so he did not take offense to our behavior fortunately. I was impressed that my son took the time to read the sign. As a second grader, he sometimes skims over things a little quickly, so did not in fact read the sign entirely which said, "Employees Must wash their hands." LOL!! Gotta love him!!! I will forever see those signs in restrooms and remember this day!!

ROFLOL!!!!! And I can't stop!!! My little "Baby Love" (affectionate name for my Lil' Zachy) just totally killed us with that one!! He is just so precious!! Of course we explained the sign to him and he went back in there and washed those hands as he was taught. But, dang that is one that will live in the history books! We have got to get the pic of him in there pointing at the sign so that we can make a page!!! Love you my "Baby Love"!!
