When I went to Disney World for the marathon I was really hoping there would be a marathon mug that I could buy. Sadly there was not, though I did get a travel mug. They had a 2017 RunDisney mug but since it wasn’t marathon specific I wasn’t sure if I wanted it. After thinking about it I decided that I did, but I didn’t want to go back to the expo. Luckily at the Princess expo last month they had these mugs again, so I was able to pick one up!
The mug is simple on a black background, but I like it. For the 2017 generic RunDisney merchandise they went with a nice light blue (last year’s color was red). It has a big Mickey head on it with the RunDisney logo and the phrase “every mile is magic.” Then in the left ear it says “RunDisney 2017,” so at least I have the year of the marathon! There’s also a blue rim around the edge that adds a little bit of extra style.
What’s in my cup: Right now I can’t get enough of the Kona Coffee I received in my Gifts from Mickey box. It’s delicious and reminds me of being in Disney. Plus it’s definitely been a lot of coffee mornings (and afternoons!) recently. I started rehearsals for Chicago and I have rehearsals for the cabaret fundraiser show I’m in. So between that, working full time, trying to keep a running schedule, and writing for the blog, sleep has been a little bit less lately! Especially this morning – I did the 10:30pm showing of Beauty and the Beast because I had rehearsal til 9, and while it was fabulous I didn’t get home til 1 am!
What I’m reading: I’m about 2/3 of the way through As Old As Time, by Liz Braswell. It’s a twisted take on Beauty and the Beast. It started out slow, as a lot of it felt like just a re-telling of the movie. But then we reached a point where things change and the plot takes a different course, and I’m definitely getting into it a lot more. The main “twist” is that the enchantress who cursed the Beast is actually Belle’s mother – and Belle starts to feel a strong obligation to help break the spell because of that. I’ll probably put a full review up once I’ve finished it!
What’s in your mug this month? And have you read any good books recently?
