Sickness


It's time to confess something to you...can I trust you with my sicknesses?

Will you promise not to think less of me?

Please????

I like to collect mugs

Not just ANY mugs though...

Disney mugs.


*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?


Hello?!?!


Yeah. :)


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.


One day...


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!!!!


:D


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






And then...


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 :(


One day...


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...


Bother


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. 


Night!!

So many mugs. I love LOVE the collection that you said is your favorite. Especially the Genie mug. If I saw that I would definitely buy it.

Dazee Dreamer said...

I love them. What a cool idea for a collection. Do you drink out of them?

Amy said...

Crazy? A little. But also sorta cute. :) Also you are (apparently) filthy stinkin' rich!!!

Bossy Betty said...

OH OH. I don't see an end to this....Does boyfriend know?

Kaleena J. said...

Those mugs are adorable. The Winnie the Pooh ones are my fave. The Monsters INC one with Mike is pretty cool too haha

That's it! I just adopted you! (if that is even possible.) Get your mugs and come to your new mommy!

I'M CRAZY JEALOUS.

A girl needs 2 Talk said...

Seriously.

This is just wrong.

My sentiments are crushed.

A girl needs 2 Talk said...

WRONG.

p.s. I remember that last mug from Noelle's post about you, some time. Can't remember the meaning.

From one passionate collector to another, you are absolutely not crazy! Every one of those mugs is cuter than the last one. I do the same thing -- must have more. It's definitely an addiction. I had to laugh picturing the top of your head blowing off the first time you walked into a gift shop at Disneyland as an adult with your own money. And at least it's a "safe" addiction ... as long as you're not out on the street corner trying to score any old random mug! =)

I get your sickness. They are very cute mugs! We went to Disneyworld this summer. I swear if my husband wasn't such a cheapskate, I would have been hauling a few of those babies home as well!

Julie said...

I have to get Dopey. This year for my dad's preformance he's going to be Dopey. I hadn't thought about what to get him yet but your post gave me the idea. Thank you. Daddy was the Tin man in Wizard of Oz the year before last and I got him a Tin man piggy bank and last they did a 1950's theme so didn't get him anything.
I love your collection. Thanks for sharing it.
I hope you're having a great weekend. take care and God Bless!!

I found a cute cup for daddy. I also goofed up, daddy isn't dopey...he's bashful. Anyways, I went to the Disney Store and they didn't have a Bashful cup so did an e-bay search and found one.
Again thank you for the idea.
Take care, sleep well.

Jessica said...

Wow, there's actually a few of those I haven't seen yet. I LOVE the set you need Jack to complete! Super cute.

Baby Sister said...

@ jayaycee - Haha. True!! I do try to be somewhat smart and mature about it. ;)

RawknRobynsGoneBlogWild said...

I love all of them. You aren't crazy, though you may have a drinking problem!

Do you drink a lot of hot stuff? The ones with the stripes in them are my faves too. Cute!
