It's time to confess something to you...can I trust you with my sicknesses?
Will you promise not to think less of me?
I like to collect mugs
Not just ANY mugs though...
*phew* I feel better getting that off my chest
I don't know when my obsession with mugs started, but I'm pretty sure I know why. See, I have four older sisters. FOUR!!
That's a lot of pressure for the youngest girl in the family...
I had a lot of expectations to live up to....and a lot of coolness to follow
And trust me. My sisters? They're VERY cool!!
Anyway, I remember a time when I want to say all, or almost all, of my sisters collected mugs
And me, wanting to be like them, thought it would be pretty cool.
And come on, who doesn't like a good mug?
It didn't really take off right away because I was young, poor, didn't have a job...and I don't think Mama Smurf would have been so cool if every five minutes I said "Mom, will you buy me that mug? Mom, will you buy me that one too? And how bout that one?"
She knew I liked them, so every once in a while she would buy me one, or my sisters would not want one anymore, or give me one, etc
The fun REALLY started the first time I went to Disneyland as an actual adult who could pay her own way
It was like a whole new world had opened up to me!! I could buy what I wanted to and not feel bad for usurping my parents money
I don't remember everything that I bought...I think I went a little crazy though. First time at Disneyland without the Padres?
But I remember seeing these:
And it was love at first site.
I couldn't decide which ones to get, so naturally I bought all of them. :)
And then we went back the next year and I found this one:
I fell in love immediately.
Eeyore, purple...what more could a girl want?
I think there were a few others in the set, but I was just going to buy one that time...being very disciplined cause I figured they'd have them again.
Unfortunately, I still haven't been able to get my hands on the others.
Next this one:
(sorry about the fuzziness...I couldn't make the camera cooperate)
This one I got using my reward points from all the Disney movies I buy
Mary Poppins is one of my ALL time favorite movies, so I was very very excited
Then, I found...
THE DISNEY STORE!!!!
I still prefer to buy from Disneyland...because it's more exciting and an adventure, but...
These were too cute to pass up!!
Then I found one of my most FAVORITE collection:
They're just so fun!!!!
There's one more mug that I don't have it...of Jack from The Nightmare Before Christmas
But Mr Boss Man is going in January and he said he'll get it for me if they have it :)
People are good to me!!
Then Becca went to Disneyland without me so I made her get me something new
you did tell me you wanted a play by play...right??
Boyfriend got me this for my birthday:
Well, he got me Eeyore
I have this thing against uncompleted sets...
I don't do them very well
So I went and bought the other two
When I saw Grumpy I got so excited!!
I have never seen a mug with him before!!
Then I saw these and fell head over heels in love and HAD to have them:
Aren't they so cute?!
They had another set at the D. Store the same time they had this one that had stars on it...but I couldn't get both sets cause they each had 4 mugs...and now I can't find them anymore :(
Most recent one I saw at the store and loved is this:
Isn't it so cute????
There are two more in the set but I was buying a Christmas present for Boyfriend while I was at the mall, so I couldn't justify it. But I'll be going back!!
That, obviously, isn't Disney.
But I love that mug anyway
It has a special meaning behind it...I'll explain tomorrow
I made it (Boyfriend helped) and I'm very proud of it
This is not ALL of the mugs I own...but I think most of what I have actually bought myself
And the most recent for sure
Now the only problem I see with this is...there are 23 Disney cups...which means I'm going to have to fix that...soon...
Do you think I'm crazy??
That's okay, so do I. :)
But at least I have fun!!
Okay, it's late...I need to go to bed.
