Tulsi Tea and Car Seat Blanket

So, as part of my New Year's resolution to get back in shape and healthier, I've been trying to avoid drinking soda.  Fine, but what to drink instead?!  Yes, I know, water should be the answer, but even though I've stepped it up, water just doesn't always cut it.  I love tea, both hot and iced, but don't want to overdo it either, and while I was shopping for different teas, I came across Tulsi Tea.  "Tulsi" is an herb, translated as "holy basil" (I bought the tea at http://www.ishopindian.com/, which is a great way to get Indian items delivered right to your door if you don't have an international grocery store near you).  I found a box of tea bags, in which the tulsi and some black tea are mixed together.  When a co-worker saw the package, he said that he used to have a tulsi plant and put it in his tea all the time.  It's really quite tasty (not as strong as regular basil), and it's supposed to contain lots of antioxidants.

And, the car seat baby blanket is done!!  The baby shower is today, so whew!  The mom-to-be is having a girl, and she has chosen pink and black as the color scheme.  So, what do you think?!
