How was your weekend? Mine was great. I suntanned, adventured on my bike, watched a great movie with Tom, had a yummy burrito lunch with girlfriends, finished a book, Skyped with my parents, had red wine, had beer, and had white wine (not all at once though). All in all, a great success.
As with all weekends, I ate too much, exercised too little, and drank way too much coffee.
I love coffee. I also love coffee mugs. What kind of mug person are you?
I have a weird theory that our coffee mugs sort of define us. Some people have a perfectly matching set of mugs, some people go for colour or pattern themes, and some people, like myself, have a crazy array of random mugs that have been collected over the years. I love that each mug comes with a story and a memory.
|These are the ones that live in our apartment. I also have mugs spread out at my parent's house, Tom's parents house, and the apartments we usually live in while we're training in Florida. I think I may have a mug obsession.|
|I picked up the red ones at a market in Mexico while on vacation last year. The Natal Day mug is obviously pretty special to me.|
|How many of you have Bunnykins dishes? Probably a lot. I've had that one since I was a kid. |
Tom and I also got really in to Mad Men last year, so for Christmas I got us matching Mad Men mugs.
|I bought this for Tom in Mexico because it seemed like a "manly" gift haha.|
|More Mad Men, more Natal Day, and a lovely Lupin mug that we were given while we were in PEI for Canada Games in 2009.|
This is my friend Christine. She lives in a house where all of the mugs are shiny and black. We call them “man mugs.” She bought this to throw some colour into the cupboard.
Check out these mugs that I found on Amazon. I love them. I think they are so funny and cute.
I am also coveting this little guy from The Bay.
Sometimes I wish I could have a lovely little set of matching flowered teacups with matching saucers, but I know it would look pretty funny and out of place next to the skull mug.
So what’s your strategy when it comes to mugs? Send me a pic of your collection. Let’s share. I think it will be fun.
