I have a lot of coffee mugs. In fact, every time I see one that I like my husband gets this look on his face like “don’t you dare buy that.” And I always try to tell him, “But it’s so cute! Isn’t it?” And then he tells me we already have way too many coffee mugs and my sad puppy dog eyes don’t work and I don’t end up buying it. Even so, I often tell people about Disney mugs I like when they ask if there are any gifts I want, or I happen to get them from Disney subscription boxes and other things, so I’ve ended up with a pretty good collection. I thought it might be fun to start sharing some of my Disney mugs!
The mug I’m drinking out of this month actually is one that I bought myself. When we were up in Hershey for the 10k two weeks ago I saw a mug that I loved at the Disney outlet store. And of course I was told that I already have too many mugs. But the next day I told Jason I slept on it, and decided I still really wanted it, so we went back and I bought it!
I mean, I loved Zootopia, so how could I not get some sort of merchandise from the movie?
Even if you haven’t seen the film, chances are you’ve seen some sort of the previews and you might be familiar with this sloth, Flash. The scene he was in was pretty funny. Actually, the first time I saw it I thought it was pretty funny. Then I went to see it a second time with someone else who hadn’t seen the previews or anything, and he laughed so much at it that it just made me laugh even more. Basically, it’s hilarious.
And as any sloth would say, “What’s the Rush?”
What I’m drinking: So what’s in my cup? This time around I’ve got some earl grey tea, my favorite type of tea. When I’m trying to slow down a little and not rush through life, like my good friend Flash suggests, I go for tea instead of coffee.
What I’m reading: Big Magic, by Elizabeth Gilbert. I’m over halfway through it and have found this book to be pretty inspiring and motivating. It’s about “living a creative life,” and with my interests of writing, blogging, and theater I find a lot that can apply to my life. I like how she advocates for still pursuing creativity in your life without giving up your day job. She also emphasizes that you don’t have to write a best seller or be a star to get a lot of fulfillment out of a creative life. I love that message.
What mug are you drinking out of? What’s in your mug, and what are you currently reading?
