Peach State says: The Quote!

20120531-082652.jpg

This is one of my favorite cups…and it is from one of my favorite places…Starbucks. So I will share with you the words of wisdom from my cup…“The “Quote”!”.

Here’s to starting the day together.
To rushing in for five minutes or five hours.
Here’s to conversations over coffee, road trips, and hatching plans.
Gathering with friends, sharing stories, and losing track of time.
Here’s to running a non-errand, to cooling off, warming up, and an afternoon with no agenda.
Here’s to ideas bubbling up.
Your novel getting written in your favorite comfy chair.
Rewarding yourself for the big presentation.
Finding a bit of home on the road.
Here’s to holiday time.
Father-and-Daughter time.
Mother-and-Son time.
Parking the stroller, cycling club, knitting club, ukulele club.
Here’s to being part of something, to sharing books, movies, vacation photos, new songs, and old family recipes.
To always saying what you want, wishing for yourself and for others.
Here’s to you!

These words are quoted from my cup…but they left off a few!

Aroma Therapy, breathing in and hold…yum!
Sometimes you want to go where everybody knows your name!
Restocking of supplies.
Retail Therapy.
Coffee Break!
OCD Meetings (Obsessive Coffee Disorder).

Did I leave anything off the list? Let me know what you would have included…Have a great day!

Peach State says: A Bit More Coffee Cup Mentality

20120505-072404.jpg
We may find ourselves drawn to cups/mugs for many reasons: the decorative qualities…to remind us where we have been…or just a inexpensive souvenir. We end up with a cabinet full of “perky” personality in varied shapes and sizes. My friends often talk about their cups…so I set out to collect pictures via Facebook. Welcome to A Bit More Coffee Cup Mentality!

The pictures came from all over…and are as unique as each of the personalities of my friends!

Can you imagine the feeling of sitting at the beach drinking your morning coffee out of these?

Even though this is for Tazo…my friend says this style cup warms her hands in the morning while she sips her coffee!

A friend recently treated his family to a taste of Broadway…Les Miserables was in town!

They went to Les Mis and all I got were these pics! Hehe!

Several of my friends enjoy a cup of tea now and then…one has a special cup just for her tea time!

Last, but not least, is a cup representing something a little closer to home.

“Funny thing…this friend lives in Tennessee and was here on business.” She did not like the cups provided during the meeting…so she bought this cup in the Starbucks on the corner during their first break. She said it is one of her favorites!

I should really clean out my cabinet…”I must confess I do love my coffee cups!”
I know I have some more to share with you!

The next time you reach for a cup or mug pay attention. Do you scan the selection for a favorite or just grab one? If you pause and find the cup, perfect for that moment, you have a “Coffee Cup Mentality!” I shall end for now and finish my second cup of espresso.

We have our favorites whether they are plain colored cups or pack a punch and make you smile. We instinctively cling to this cup and sip our coffee or tea! They give insight to our mood, our wants and dreams and reveal who we are! Welcome back to Coffee Cup Mentality 2! I asked my friends and family to take a picture of their favorite coffee cup or mug and posted several of them last week. I received more pics and inquiries so….I will give you a peek into the psyche of my friends and family. Hold on…because here we go!

I guess she is sharing a little Farm Humor!

There is nothing like a smiling face to start your morning. Where is that Puddy cat?

20120421-072520.jpg
This friend…well…she loves her cats!

The next couple of pictures are of a cup I gave my mother during her Country Duck decorating phase. She has admitted this is one of her favorites. I wish there had been another one…I would have bought one for myself!

There are four siblings in my family…aren’t we cute? Do you see me? Yep…that’s me on the right!

The next picture is not a mug…but is a definite favorite among my little Peas in a Pod!.

You guessed it! That is me holding one of my favorites! Don’t worry…it is a Skinny Mocha Frapp!

The next one was given to me by a dear friend almost 24 years ago! Hmmm! I don’t have mood swings…Do I?

I do love this cup!

Do you show off your personality or your favorite cartoon character? Do you have memories of places you have traveled or concerts you have attended? What do others learn about you when they see your Coffee Cup Mentality?
Send me those pics! Time for a refill…Have a great day!

Is it the coffee that is “producing happiness” or me? This cup was a gift from my Heart of Dixie Cousin!

I recently posted a plea for personality coffee cup pics as my status on Facebook. The first response was small with more comments than photos. I thought it would be interesting to see the personality and mentality of my friends through their coffee/tea cups and mugs. “Maybe they were afraid to show me their true nature!”

Here are the pics of “Coffee Cup Mentality” I have received to date!

We all have our Team mugs:

I may have to borrow this cup and forget to return it…I love this song!

Last but not least…The Personality mugs:

We have our favorites…”Don’t we?” I will be receiving more soon…”I will personally invite then to send me pics tomorrow at church!” Our cups and mugs remind us of where we have been and what we have seen. They become a representation of who we are! The sleepy smiling face or the dancing frog…it depends on the mood of the day.

What is your favorite mug or cup? Do you find yourself using it day after day? “I know I do!”
Have a great day…and enjoy starting your day with a little “Coffee Cup Mentality”!
