Coffee Date

Good Morning Friends!

I could say, good, rainy, yucky, slightly blustery morning

but let's focus on the positive, shall we?

If we were really meeting here for coffee today

you would have found out that I have an addiction.

To coffee mugs.

It's true.

I have dozens of them!

Bama Man and I have agreed it's okay.

And one reason it's okay is because

almost all of them have some sort of sentimental significance.

So I figured, since you will probably see me with

a different mug each week,

you might as well know why :)

This one, for example is from our trip to Disneyland.

Bama Man and I made the trek to California

last year for the National Champoinship Game.

The game was great, we won, that was exciting.

The true prize for me?

My sweet husband took me to Disney!

We may not have covered this before in our relationship,

but I'm a little bit of a sentimental sucker

when it comes to Disney.

I grew up with bi-yearly trips to Disneyworld,

idolized the princesses,

and generally fed my hopeless romantic streak

with the "magic" of the "Happiest Place on Earth."

But something was missing.

I hadn't been there with my "Prince" yet.

Until last year!

We chose California Adventure

since it was a new experience for both of us.

And it was fabulous!

So obviously, it was worth celebrating with a mug.

Inside it has this quote from Walt,

"To all that come to this happy place;welcome."

Love it!

So, what are you up to today?

I've alotted out my morning off with

a reasonable balance of housework and frivilous activity.

I gave up daytime television (including movies)

for Lent, and I thought long and hard

about how to indulge this morning.

After browsing our DVDs, cable, and Netflix

I just ended up with

"Cat on a Hot Tin Roof"


I know, it's not super exciting.

If you missed how I feel about this movie,

you can check it out here.

Did you enjoy breaking your Lent fast (if you had one)?

How did you do it?

My clothing project

has been particularly un-fun recently.

But I got to wear my favorite dress

in the whole world on Easter Sunday,

so I felt a little better.

The truth is, I've been finding quite

a few treasures hidden away in my own closet.

I've been meaning to show you a few of them.

Maybe I'll get a

"what I wore Wednesday"

out tomorrow.

Well, it's on to maintaining my wonderful house.

Enjoy your Tuesday Friends!

Guess what?

Good news:

The caffine in your cup of coffee this morning

has raised your resting metablic rate

by about 15%

which means you can burn

up to an extra 50 calories today.

So drink up!



  1. Yay Disneyland!! Your mugs are so cute, and I love collections...so Im with you sister!


  2. I totally understand about Disney, as you know. When our little princess is ready to enjoy it, I can't wait to go with my prince (and little princess) too!!!! :))) I've already checked into how you plan a trip staying in the Disney resorts for a married couple with a baby (for maybe next year)! :)

  3. nothing, no nothing better than disney land!

  4. That is great news! I gave up shopping for Lent, and I have to admit I have been to a shop or two today!

  5. I love Disneyland too. We used to have season passes. Even though we go often, I still get excited when we near and see the signs.
