Last week, we saw "The King's Speech". Loved everything about it. Probably the best movie we've seen all year! Oscar thinks so too, with 12 Oscar nominations. Colin Firth is a definite lock for Best Actor.
Today we saw "True Grit". You'll definitely be able to tell it is a Coen brothers movie! There were several funny lines which had us laughing. Hailee Steinfeld is just terrific as Mattie Ross. A different ending than the first version. While Jeff also gives a great performance, I still think Colin will get the Oscar.
If you can't get to the theater, be sure to "Save" them in your Netflix queue.

Number of teabags: 15
Type of tea: Green
Steeping time: 3-4 minutes
Mix ins: Fat-free condensed milk
Opinion: A little bit pricey, but worth it. A very smooth, very blueberry flavor with a nice balance of vanilla. It's not bitter nor tart at all. I think it's the best blueberry tea I've found.

Citizen King - "Better Days (And the Bottom Drops Out)" - 3:27
Ever have one of those days? I first heard this song on one and started laughing! Bye-bye bad day. The video is cute, too.

Number of teabags: 36 sachets
Type of tea: Herbal
Steeping time: 5 minutes
Mix ins: Fat-free condensed milk
Teabag fragrance: Chocolate and coconut
Opinion: While you can smell the cocoa/carob and coconut in the container, the brewed flavor favors the coconut. It still has a very nice, albeit unusual, overall ingredient combination. They call it a "cup of dessert herb tea, "and it was a special yummy treat on a cold night. The label also suggests you can also drink it in the warmer months "cooler" style, by adding milk and ice.

Not only a great beat for the treadmill. This song is just perfect for swimming laps, too - I loved doing the flip turns at just the right changes! Zoom!
