If I’m going to take the time to grind up coffee beans, add the correct amount of water, and sit down to enjoy my coffee, you’d better believe I’m not drinking it out of a styrofoam cup. No no! I want something unique, exciting, and special. Thus, I began a mug collection.
I started this coffee cup collection back in 2009 when my two sisters and I went to Chicago to see the Harry Potter exhibit. (I touched Hermione’s Yule Ball gown! Ahh!) I wanted a fun souvenir, but I just knew I’d lose a bookmark. Instead, a Harry Potter coffee mug was purchased. Then when I went to Disney in winter 2011, I purchased some delightful Mickey and Minnie mugs for Keegan and me.
|Clearly a fan of fictional characters.|
After a while, Keegan and I decided coffee mugs were a practical yet fun present for when we travel, so our collection has continued to grow with each trip out of Michigan.
|The Chicago cup fits 4 cups of coffee.
I’m bouncing off the walls when I drink out of that one.
|I know! The built in stirrer simply completes these adorable mugs!|
Soon enough my family and friends caught on, and this Christmas they showered me with coffee mugs!
|Dahling, they ahh perrrfect for pahties!|
|Well, sonny, in my day it was normal to drink 5 cups o’ joe each morning!|
I do have to say, one of the most unique mugs that I own not only resembles my favorite animal, but it actually has my favorite animal inside of it!
|Well, a replica of my favorite animal.
I don’t think even a baby giraffe could fit inside a coffee mug.
