I got mugged

a while back, I came across this adorable blog...and consequently, one of the best ideas ever.  A mug swap.  My husband will tell you mugs are just one of the many things I'm sorta obsessed with...pitchers, tea pots, vases, vintage silverware, cupcakes...and we're just getting started.  But there's little that makes me more giddy inside than drinking a fabulous cup of coffee from a great mug.  

So I signed myself right up and dear Susan set me up with this great lady.  Susan really knocked it out of the park with this match-up.  We are both teachers who love to cook, bake, and garden.  Amanda makes some really amazing cakes that make me salivate rather unattractively.  But back to the point...

So the idea is that you get matched up with another blogger, you blog-stalk each other for a little bit, and then you go out in search of the perfect mug for your match.  Amanda's mug is on its way south to her right now, but I was lucky enough to get mine in the mail right after my birthday!  Double-score!  Check it out...

Don't mind the ridiculously-manicured nails...fixing that tonight.
yay!  love it!!!
So tonight, Amanda, my friend, I am christening this baby with a cup of tea with fresh mint and lemon as I watch the rain fall on my little plantlings on the porch.  
Wish we could share a cup of tea on the porch together and commiserate about end-of-the-school-year blues!  

Thanks, Susan, for a great new friend, and thanks, Amanda, for a mug that I LOVE.  It's cheery, colorful, and definitely ME.  You nailed it!
