Summer Favorites

Now that summer is upon us, I thought I’d deviate from the business at hand and write about my five “summer fav’s” so far.

#1. YUM! A friend told me about the benefits of Peppermint tea. I’ve started to sun brew a jar of Culinary Circle Purely Peppermint herbal tea every week, and drink a glass or two every day. My son even drank a glass before he took the SAT. It may be all in my mind… but I feel so focused! : ) Check out the major benefit of peppermint tea:

Mental Focus – Peppermint tea has a cool, refreshing flavor and an invigorating aroma that can help drivers stay alert, focused and less anxious, says the Indiana State University Department of Human Resources. The aroma of peppermint tea can boost mental performance and promote focus, making tea a useful drink for students, employees in the workplace or anytime alertness and energy are required. There are other great benefits too!

#2. YUM! In my ongoing efforts to function more efficiently every day, I’ve found out about a “wonder snack”… Greek Yogurt. Greek yogurt is a protein powerhouse! It has a thicker and smoother texture than regular yogurt and taste decadent. I love the different flavors and portion size of FAGE greek yogurt, my favorite being cherry, cherry pomegranate and strawberry. However they have every flavor under the sun! The best part… 0g of fat!

#3. FUN! I’m loving the stretch Chambray Cuff Target shorts by Mossimo. Not only are they inexpensive, they look great (especially if you’re like me and don’t have the longest legs) : )  Lots of bright summer colors, I seem to always go with the neutral colors. Pair them with a Target tank by Mossimo, and your summer wardrobe is set and you still have $$ in your wallet!

#4. FUN! Ok, this is where I didn’t go with neutral colors. I can’t get enough of the uber colorful “premium super shiny crop jeans from the Gap. Bright teal, orange, tangerine, pink, and more. I find myself wearing these colorful jeans to the grocery store, out to dinner, to the movies, or to the farmers market. They are comfy, lightweight and oh so summery. : )

#5. So Good! I’ve just started (and almost finished) the book, Unbroken by Laura Hillenbrand (she also wrote Seabiscuit – another one of my favorites). Unbroken is an amazing heart wrenching and heart warming true story of a man named Louie Zamperini. “The only runner who could beat him was Seabiscuit,” said Louie Zamperini’s coach at the University of Southern California, as this track star, who had competed in the 1936 Berlin Olympics, trained for the 1940 Olympics in Tokyo. But a deeply unfunny thing happened to him on the way to Japan. The 1940 games were canceled. Mr. Zamperini became an Air Force lieutenant. And he wound up going to Japan not as a miler but as a savagely abused prisoner of war.

Now a little business:

A happy tale…

Once upon a time, way back in the year 2000, a school by the name of St. John Lutheran School asked a company by the name of to make some motivational tags for their school. happily agreed, since creating BragTags™ was their specialty. This was the beginning of a delightful and long-lasting relationship.

St. John Lutheran School asked to create Perfect Attendance tags.

And did.

And St. John Lutheran School was happy.

Over the years St. John Lutheran asked to create tags for all kinds of things like Walk To School Day, Fun Day, Safari Reading, Science Fair, School Musical, Honor Roll, Spelling Bee and Happy Birthday.

And did.

And St. John Lutheran School was happy.

The years passed by, twelve years to be exact. And one June day in 2012, St. John Lutheran School sent a picture to thought the picture was magnificent… proud students showing off big smiles and bountiful BragTags they’d earned and collected throughout their school years. asked St. John Lutheran School if they would give permission to show off the magnificent picture.

And St. John Lutheran School did.

And was happy.

The end. : )
