You just reminded me of a long-time obsession. I used to drink so much iced-tea and then came Emma and I had to stop while prego. I will get right back at it asap.

Mmmmmmmmmm.... That looks terribly delicious. I don't even know where the nearest Trader Joe's is though... I've never been to one. Everyone seems to rave about that place!

This could be my new summer drink, but until now it was Trader Joes pomegranate green tea.

The first thing you said was Trader Joes. Bummer! They're not in Oklahoma, but I will be in Santa Fe, NM in three weeks, so I'll add it to the list!
