National Coffee Day!!!

CoffeeLoversBloghopLogo-1024x682Hello everyone! I’m here today joining our friend Chaitali from Cuts, Crops and Creativity and her Coffee themed Blog Hop today.

We are celebrating National Coffee Day!!!  Prior to this hop, I had no clue there was an actual day for coffee.  How cute!!

Here is my card for today’s hop:

National Coffee Day

To create my card I used Sweet Stamp Shop Coffee Town Stamp Set.

Who doesn’t like a nice coffee house to spend some times with friends.  Here in NY, we have so many of those places in and around the city.

I have to admit I’m not a coffee drinker.  I am a (tea) lover.  Please do not yell at me but I just am.  So, to really get in the mood, I asked my mom, who loves her coffee a couple of questions about her obsession with her coffee mug in the morning.

1. When did you start drinking coffee?

I started drinking coffee a couple of years ago.  I’m not sure why it started but once I tried it I was hooked.

2. What is favorite brand?

My favorite brand, that is hard.  I really like McDonald’s coffee.  They really know how to make it right.  If I have to make it myself I like Starbucks Colombia Medium coffee.

3. What is the most amazing coffee that you had? Remember where and when?

LOL, I was at a dinner party with some friends in Jamaica, WI and we were served Blue Mountain coffee and it was to die for. That was about two years ago, which was the last time I was there.

4. If I don’t drink my needed coffee, I will…?

If I don’t drink my needed coffee, I will have a headache early in the morning.

Thanks mom, for accommodating me today.

I am excited about my new mug and all the other goodies I received from someone I don’t even know.  #Blessingothers is so much fun.  I truly feel blessed.  My favorite color is purple and I love deep chunky mugs!  I’m so grateful.

I’m waiting to see if the lady I sent my box to gets it soon and she reaches out to let me know.  I hope she likes what she gets.  I guess I should check the tracking to make sure.  It wasn’t going far, only to Tennessee.

I can’t wait until next to do this again!!  I encourage all of you to do it to!

Thanks for stopping by.

My Mug Swap for 2014

Second Post for the day

 

Hello everyone!  I’m back again today with a different type of post!  I’m excited about this post because I’m participating in a Swap that is amazing!!

Its the Annual Mug Swap!!  I found this awesome project on Instagram.  This year’s theme is Blessing Others!!  Isn’t that amazing!!

Here is how it works:

Give a mug. Get a mug.  You sign up with Kim over on her website and she assigns you partner to swap a mug with.  What I love is that its a total surprise.  You don’t know who has you or what part of the world they are from.  I LOVE THINGS LIKE THIS!!

So Kim, creates a form and you fill it out with some information about yourself so that the person who gets your name can get you a mug based on what you say.  How much fun is this!!

The funny thing is I missed the first round and was down about that.  The spots go sooooo fast.  Then Kim opened 30 more slots and I rushed to get my form in.  I made it by the skin of my teeth.  I think I was the last spot.  I was so excited when I saw that my form was accepted.  Yayyyyy!!

So with that said, next year I’m going to be the first in line.  You should too!

Now on to my mug swap:

I wasn’t given a lot of info about the person I have to send my mug too.  I check all of her social media platforms but unless you friend her you can’t get any info.  All I know is that she is moving and is a new mom wanting to get to know other moms.    She lives in the States.  Wow, that is a lot to go with!! Not really!

So, I decided to stick with what I know and that is I’m a mom too.  So I searched for a mug that represented that.  I look high and low.

I thought living in NY, we had all kinds of stores.  I went searching for mug stores.  Can you believe that we don’t have any!!  I search Manhattan, high and low, and none.

I did find a small shop that sold all sorts of knick-knacks and I found this mug:

Mug Swap

I knew right away that this was the mug I wanted to get!!  As a mom, I know I have superpowers and I want her to know that she has them too.  Being a mom is such an important job that we will have for the rest of our life’s!

I hope she likes her new mug and uses it often!  It’s going in the mail today and should get to her by Wednesday of next week.  I can’t wait.  I will also include a really nice card, the one I made today  and some other stuff I think she will like.

Here is the card just in case you haven’t seen it:

Today

I hope I make a new friend.

I will keep you updated on this mug swap journey!!

Thank you for stopping by!
