Wanting to know you Wens : the coffee date!

lovies, i was sooo excited for this virtual meet-up. Since I drink  coffee at all hours of the day, i asked everyone last wens to send a photo with their favorite coffee mug. I adore all of you who played along! it was awesome to see everyone's faces and the pretty mugs for your coffees/teas/hot chocolates. 

I kept thinking how fun it would be if we could all get together in real life. What a fun coffee date this would be!

^me & my Texas mug, made by an artist in Marshall, TX. 

^My husband-to-be with his favorite mug, a vintage one i gave him (the man's hat sticks out of the top & he's eating eggs)

^my bestie M and the first gift i ever gave her (Darcy mug) in Fargo, ND

^Megan in Australia with her pretty floral vintage mug

^Erin in Colorado with her "crabby" coffee cup (she loves all things crabs, which I told her was neat since i don't know anyone else who collects them! i love random tid bits about people) ps. i love your glasses!

^my BEAUTIFUL twinkie with her Shawn Michaels coffee tumbler (yes, the former WWE Wrestler) while at work.

^twinkie's bff Steph & her favorite marvin the martian coffee mug in TX.

Steph had her youngest son Zac take her photo and then he wanted one with it, so OF COURSE i wanted to show him off! cutie.  In fact, the other beautiful moms included photos with their little ones and i just love that!!!


^I love Catherine's "Hungry Caterpillar" mug! (& her short hair) in York, England

^my "neighbor" Cindy Jean and her Cheshire Cat mug in Ashburn, VA

^Meghan and her expresso (i can't get over her pretty  red hair!) in Chicago

^pretty Farah at Starbucks in Malaysia

^my wonderful Erin in Canada with her littlest one Dylan. How can you deny a smile like that?

^Karleen in Ann Arbor, Michigan who's favorite mug is one she got when she went to Alaska. She had breakfast at the Snow City Cafe and loved the place so much, she bought a mug to take home. 

^adorable Gracie in her pjs since it was nighttime in Australia when she sent this. Cuteness!

^Danielle who is plain gorgeous (i make it a point to say so cos she said this pic proved she was not photogenic... puhlease right?!) and her San Fran mug that she bought for her husband on her last trip & her favorite bird mug from our favorite antique shop. Danielle lives where i do so we get to have real coffee dates!

^Kara in Phoenix, AZ (where my brother lives!) j'adore the artsy pic

^a shot of Carrie Marie's favorite mug in Iowa. Carrie said this might seem like a "cop out" pic but Leyton is in it, so it's cute by default. (i agree!) Carrie loves Hibiscus flowers and said this about her mug:  "About a year or so after I bought them, I was watching this show on USA that I loved, 4400.  And one of the dudes was using my mug!!  It was like seeing my house on TV or something.  (Nerd.  Yep.  Admit it!)"  I giggled! again, love random stories.

^CW in Columbus, OH  & her amazing $1 thrift store find. She says she daydreams a lot in the mornings and would give the horses and old ladies names like "Ethel, Merwyn, and Betty White." Such a pretty picture.

^these two just make me so happy! Kary & her son Miguelito in NY. Karina's mug is a London one & Miguelito is actually holding a mug i sent to them.  Kary's close to her dad and told me he has tattoos for each of his children and her symbol is a smiley face. i had this one lying around and had to send it to her! i'm glad i did because look at that precious smile.

^super sweet L. Nicole in Naples, FL. I love how her mug has a design in the inside! i totally tried taking a photo like this so i loved that you pulled it off so prettily! (did i make up a word?) 


i would love this coffee date!!! someday... A huuuuge thank-you for playing along! 

Can't wait to meet up again xo

I hate that I missed this... I took the pic and everything, but when I went to upload it before work I realized my internet was down AGAIN. And I was too busy at work this morning to upload it from my office. :(

Erin's right, it's odd (but neat) to see my picture and Leyton on a different blog! *laugh* I love this idea, tho, and all the different mugs! Megan's is a new favorite, I think - so pretty!

Yeah, this idea was pretty much genius. So sorry I dropped the ball and didn't send a pic in time, but I hope you'll do it regularly cause seeing everyone is SO FUN and I'd never get sick of it.

Phoenix Peacock said...

ha. so I totally took one the other night after the reminder and then spaced on sending it... well, that is a bit typical of me..

Farah said...

Micaelaaaa...you are looking SO pretty!!

It was really fun doing this you my dear. Love that you always have such great ideas. till next wens! ;) xo

Karina said...

You are too sweet : ) - Our caption was so touching - *blushing* Miguelito loves the mug, we literally have to fight for it every morning -lol- whoever wakes up first gets to eat cereal out of it, so it's a race every morning-Ha!! He wins most of the time * wink*wink*. It was great to participate and you are the best. Loved Your idea!!!! Lots of love, Kary & Miguelito -xoxo

Anna said...

chelsea rebecca said...

Jumbleberry Orchard said...

This is brilliant - good effort Micaela!

It'd be amazing if we had a real coffee meet up.

Maybe we could do different themes, like a sleepover, with photos in our favourite pyjamas!? I love seeing faces from all over the world - it was awesome meeting you, everyone!

Ria said...

Aw, it worked out so perfectly! It would be so great to have a real coffee date with everyone, but this is such an adorable substitue. Good Work Micaela ;) xx

What a cool idea - I love it!

heisschic said...

gahhhhh i meant to play along! ha small problem though- i dont currently (yet) own any mugs. coffee goes directly into styrofoam cups at work (SO bad for the enviro- i know) and with the hot HOT weather, i havent needed to buy any for home.

this is ridiculous. i need to go buy adarn mug. thanks for the reminder! this looked like fun-

erin elder said...

Oh this is so awesome!!! I wanna play! Next time I will for sure.

You are darling Micaela.

Julia said...

Faiza said...

love this post! makes me wanna go out and get a mug and pretend to drink coffee. (i've never had it in my life.)

Maddy said...

I love this! I was thinking of photographing myself with a drinking cup but they're all packed because we're moving (I think I told you this? maybe? forgive me if I did... forgetful) but this is so cute!!

Stephanie said...

Aw, your coffee date turned out wonderful!
I love Jumbleberry Orchard's idea. A sleep over, everyone in their favorite pjs....or maybe movie night, everyone holding their favorite movie. haha, you know me and movies.
Good job, Mickey. I love it.

Heather {A Measure Of...} said...

Awww, I totally missed this :) haha, sounds like other people did too, so maybe you will have to do another one! Things got super busy here. We had a double photoshoot of belly shots and some mug shots, but then I never took them off the camera. I am still going to send you a photo when I feel more caught up!

Can't wait for tomorrow to have (almost) nothing to do! I can catch up and write and do the work I've been neglecting.

xoxo

Raquel said...

Oh, poo! I forgot. I don't drink coffee or tea but for what it's worth, I have a really cute mug that says "Shopping is my cardio". It's used for ice cream...naturally. ;) <3

Heather {A Measure Of...} said...

Oh! P.S. How much I would LOVE to do this coffee date in real life! What a beautiful possibility, no?

Meghan said...

This was SO STINKIN FUN! I cannot wait to do it again!!! Thank you for your kind words, my dear!!! You and your hubby-to-be are adorable!

Micaela said...
