I won’t say that I buy a mug EVERY time I go to Disney, but I will admit that it certainly happens a lot. On this past trip I was really hoping for a marathon mug at the expo, but unfortunately they didn’t sell one. I did get a travel mug, but that’s not a MUG mug. So I didn’t plan on buying one, but the world had a different idea 😉
As you might know, I was very stressed before the marathon with a lot of things going on. I wasn’t even sure if I was going to run it. But the night before the race I left Epcot and went back to the room to get to bed early, and I found a gift waiting for me. One of my friends had sent me a present to wish me luck – it had a good luck balloon, snacks, a water bottle – and a Disney mug!
This one has a silhouette of our good friend Mickey Mouse in red on a black background. The inside of the mug is red too, which gives it a neat look. I also really like the shape of this type of mug. In many ways it’s perfect to represent the marathon for me – Mickey is the mascot of the marathon, and the marathon logo has traditionally been red (or had a lot of red in it).
What’s in my cup: Kona coffee from Disney’s Kona Cafe! We enjoyed it there on our trip last August. I bought some for my friends as a Christmas gift from Joffrey’s (they sell lots of Disney coffees) and couldn’t resist picking up a bag for myself as well!
What I’m reading: I’m about halfway through the book Of Fire and Stars, which I got in one of my new subscription boxes called Owl Crate. It’s a YA fantasy novel with two powerful female protagonists and I’m really enjoying it so far.
What’s in your mug this month? And have you read any good books recently?
