Things That Make Me Happy: Coffee Mugs!

All of the credit for my mug collection should really go to my husband.  It is quite ironic considering that he isn't the biggest fan of my collecting. :) It all started when he took a trip to Seattle a few years ago and brought me back a mug. Now, every trip we take, every store I walk into, or every online store that I shop, I have my eyes peeled for a new mug! I LOVE them! I am a coffee addict and I wake up looking forward to my morning cup of Joe.  So why not make sure that mug is cute!?  There is no such thing as too many mugs.

When I was growing up, we took a trip to Asheville, NC every summer. I absolutely love Asheville. On each trip, we would stop at Mast General Store and then we would eat pizza at Barley's Taproom & Pizzeria.  So many wonderful memories from that oh-so-beautiful place.  Now, my little family makes several trips to Greenville, SC and I found that there is a Mast General Store AND a Barley's there! Two of my favorite little towns are home to two of my favorite little places!
I found this Life is Good mug at Mast and I love it.  Because when it comes down to it, simplicity really makes for the happiest life. <3 

I love my Mrs. Boss Lady mug from Konfetti.  Let's just be real, every working mommy and wifey needs a sassy mug! Especially when you are the B-O-S-S.  Konfetti has so many cutie mugs, so whichever one you choose, you will not be disappointed.

I follow For Posh Sake on Instagram and a few days before I got married, I saw her post these hubby and wifey mugs and I HAD to have them.  I may or may not have instantly ordered them and had them rush shipped so that we could have them for the morning after our wedding. ;) Here we are over a year later and they are still some of our favorite mugs! They are the perfect size and the fact that they are a hubby and wifey pair makes them sheer perfection. When my hubby is included in the mug loving, he doesn't hate the mug collecting as much.  That's a win!

Target DOES not disappoint. Ever.  If you are looking to start your mug collection or add to it (tenfold), head to your local Target.  They have so many mugs and they change the designs out all the time.  The seasonal mugs are so cute! I have to restrain myself from buying five or more mugs at a time.  Most of the mugs are under $5, so you really can't beat that!

I think I have expressed my love for my Silhouette Cameo before and here I am expressing my love for coffee mugs, so the fact that I can use my Cameo to design my own coffee mugs is like a dream come true!  I found these plain red mugs and added the words "better together" to them using the most AMAZING vinyl I have ever found from Expressions Vinyl.  It is called Gold Chrome and trust me when I say that I put that stuff on everything.  I am obsessed! 

TJ Maxx is another place that always has the cutest mugs!  If you see one that you like, you better grab it!  Like Target, they are always adding new mugs and the inventory changes all the time.  TJ Maxx is a great place to rack up on mugs, especially with prices like $2.99.  Such cute mugs at such low prices!

Starbucks and Anthropologie always have super cute mugs.  I have also found mugs at Pier 1, Dollar Tree, Jane.com, Walmart, and on the many trips that we take!  You can find mugs just about anywhere.

Happy collecting!
