6 Cute and Clever Coffee Cups

6 Cute and Clever Coffee Cups

Parents, we wouldn't be as awesome as we are today without one thing... coffee! The fragrant roast, the warmth of the beverage, the incentive to be productive {hello... caffeine!} Coffee is a key component in my story of motherhood. Recognizing the role coffee plays in my life, I feel a great coffee mug is kind of a requirement for life.

We have some fantastic mugs in the shop that I had to share with you, these are cute, catchy and sure to become a favorite vessel of yours for your favorite magical mom brew!

There are days when I feel like this about adulting.... I am sure you do too! When the urge to mermaid hits, let the world know with this fantastic mug!

If you love Pokemon Go, you need this mug! It is cute, it is clever and it is going to make you smile not once, but twice. The first smile will come when you grab what is sure to become your favorite mug. The second smile comes from the first sip of the coffee.

On  those days when you can't even, we have a mug for that! Make a statement with this mug that most of your friends are going to agree with.

This mug tells it like it is. Let the people know you can and will focus, but you need some coffee to do it. Hopefully, someone will get the hint and fill your mug with something delicious and freshly brewed.

Somedays you need to proclaim messy hair don't care and grab your favorite mug  of coffee as you tackle the never ending to-do list of a mom.

This mug is funny, but it is not meant to be. We meant this as a fact of life. Either way, if you need a chuckle or a mug that offers a taste of brutal honesty, this is the one! Coffee keeps me going until it is time for wine is kinda my mantra these days.

If you don't drink coffee, no sweat. It is, after all, hot cocoa season! If you are shopping for a coffee loving friend, these mugs make the perfect holiday gift idea!

 

 

Making Fall Chores Seem Like Family Fun Time

Making Fall Chores Seem Like Family Fun Time

I have a secret to tell you guys.

In the fall, there are so many opportunities for family fun! It seems my family is prepared to have fun, no matter what we have on our agenda for the day... and I totally manipulate that by turning chores into family fun!

If you have a long list of things to do, and an equal longing for family time you are going to love these ideas for Making Fall Chores Seem Like Family Fun Time!

Plant Bulbs for Spring!
Family gardening is fun because it is dirty! My kids love the opportunity to get their hands dirty, so they get really excited anytime there is a chance to get in the garden! Plant bulbs such Irises, daffodils and tulips now for a great display of easy maintenance color in the spring!

Rake The Leaves
Give everyone a chance to rake the leaves, and of course a chance to jump in the pile too! The kids will have a lot of fun with the jumping! To avoid groans over the raking, make it a contest, who can make the biggest leaf pile in 5 minutes time?

Feed the Birds
If you don't have a bird feeder, now is a great time to craft up an easy one with the kids. I love this pine cone bird feeder craft. It is so simple almost anyone could make one. After you have fed the birds, enjoy some quiet bird watching time together as a family!

Clean and Put Away Outdoor Furniture
On a warm and sunny fall day, gather sponges, scrub brushes, soap, and water and let the kids help you scrub outdoor chairs and toys before you store them for winter. This is great because, in the spring, your outdoor items will be clean before you bring them back out and your kids will love getting one last chance to get a little wet before winter comes.


Do you have a favorite activity to do with the family in the fall that doubles as a chore? I would love to hear about it!
