The things that matter to girls.

Here is my sweet friend Angela in my kitchen for our weekly cup of coffee.
She is debating between the two mugs as they both look so cute with her outfit.

We do this every week. The matching, that is.

Then we wondered, are we the only ones who do this?
Are we the only ones who love it and think it’s fun and funny?

Hm. Which one? Black or Pink?

See, the pink looks so cute with the shirt!

See the black mug on the counter? That's actually the one she went with. Good choice.
Hm...these brown giraffes look cute with my brown shirt.

But the brown in the tree and and hint of brown edges on the Eiffel Tower look so chic with the green!
I’m putting it out there…. anyone else enjoy matching their coffee mug or tea cup to their clothes?
C’mon…tell the truth.
I know you do it.

Of course nobody does this. I'm sure people do match their soda can choices. Today, I went with diet orange crush to bring out the orange highlights in my hair.

I select my mug entirely on mood and how it makes me feel. Hmm, secondarily, how well it matches it's intended contents.
Which I now find intriguing, as I am so very particular about color. I generally won't select a mug if it isn't within my personal color palette, so I suppose that means it is more likely to coordinate with my outfit...

I love how your creative artistry (both u and angela) come through in every day life! I wish I would think to enjoy the beauty in such simple and little things, there is great joy in that! Now I understand why your coffee cup cabinet is so much prettier than mine... I need to start finding cute mugs.

ps... I also love that your new avatar looks more like you every time I see it, and I'm amazed at the close match to your kitchen... I want your kitchen... and your mugs

Great fun morning post. I'm particular about my coffee cup as well.

Thanks for your comment on the Lylah Blog...:-) Didn't read the Tripp book, but we took a home group through their whole video teaching changing indeed.

I'll have to come back and visit your sweet place here in bloggy land.

The selecton of the mug is critical. I do not like to drink from a mug that is clear glass. I think it makes the coffee taste funny. I have one with a grand child on it, and one made by a grandchild, and my travel mug.

I figure that the Dutch Bros. logo goes with everything.

As I read this I am drinking tea from a blue mug that reads "You may all go to hell and I will go to Texas"- Davy Crockett. It's so random and not matched to anything in my house, but it was gift and I am sentimental. It is also big (like Texas) and holds a good cup of tea (but never coffee).

This totally cracks me up. I don't match my mug to my outfit, but I guarantee you I'll think about that next time I choose a mug!

Kismet said...

I never match,,,but I do enjoy picking mugs at someone else's kitchen. But that isn't usually based on what I am wearing. Everything goes with black!

I've never heard of this or even thought of it. But I think it is cute that you do.
As a girl with (unfortunately) big hands, I pick a mug for the way the handle feels -- the best ones have room for all four fingers so everything is secure and comfortable; I hate when it's so small that I'm squishing to get just three fingers in. Might as well just hold it on the side after it cools down. Wish I could be more into dainty, but nothing about me was born dainty.

This is awesome!
Yes, I do choose my mug to match. Very girl like!

Thats hysterical! I'll have to try it know, to be uber cute.

I can totally picture you and Ang doing this and giggling all the while!
I tend to choose more of a tea cup shape, dainty and small. Partly because I can never seem to get through a whole cup of coffee or tea and partly because I love the feel of it in my hands.
