This weekend was the first weekend in about a month that I felt like myself again. I was motivated, and got a lot of cleaning done. Even though it snowed again on Saturday it wasn’t enough to make a difference and the temperature was up enough to melt some of the snow. The hope that Spring is near is helping.
Yesterday was my Dad’s birthday and he hates having his picture taken so I don’t have many pictures of him but if you want to read why I think he is awesome you can read yesterday’s post.
After Tori tagged a picture on Instagram of an anchor pillow I wanted to check out TJ Maxx to see if I could find it. Instead I hear the heavens part and this wall of mugs made the angels sing. 😉
I also hit Marshall’s, and got another 2 mugs, one was a gift though, I ended up with a total of five mugs. Home Goods and Targets to return items, and the Pet store.
I started a deep clean of the house in hopes to start feeling normal again, without salt trails, boots, and piles of wet gear.
I finished the second book of the Breathless Series by Maya Banks which so far is my favorite of the three books. All books are better than 50 Shades.
I shoveled a path to my oil tank refill since I need an oil delivery, it was not fun.
The last mug up there is one of my gifts to my Dad for his birthday. Picture and mug provided by the Morning Sunshine Shop.
I went to my brothers on Sunday afternoon to have lunch and celebrate my Dad. My brother being a pretty awesome Dad too.
Seamus loves to kick the blankets off the couch and make a bed on the ground, so I decided to get him a new bed when I saw that one at TJ Maxx. He hasn’t liked them in the past but this one seemed really cushioned so I gave it a shot. He was skeptical for a few minutes, then I couldn’t keep him off it.
How was your weekend?
Linking up with Biana from B Loved Boston.

Oh my gosh girl you were in mug heaven at the store! So happy you had a productive weekend and were able to enjoy family time!! Happy Monday! xo, Biana
It was amazing. I wanted to get so many of them but I did hold back. It is always nice to get to spend time with my family. They are a wild bunch.

i looooove mugs! i have to show restraint whenever i pass through the mug aisle at winners because only 2 people in the house drink coffee yet we have about 50 of them in our cupboard!
happy bday to your dad!!
Seriously I am only one person and i have a ridiculous amount of mugs. I use them for everything though, not just coffee.
Ha I love the favorite child mug! Looks like a great weekend – Happy Birthday to your dad!
SMD @ Life According to Steph says
I love the new bed for Seamus. And of course I’m drooling over the mugs.
I need to do a deep clean too.
I thought he would ignore it like he normally does, but I can’t get him off it. He even stayed downstairs last night rather than coming upstairs to sleep in my bedroom! 🙁 I am glad he likes it though.
I am still planning on pulling a lot of stuff out and purging a lot but it felt good to get started.
Seamus is so cute!!! Love his new bed!!
Thank you. It was such a good find, and i am just glad he likes it, and it didn’t go unused.
aw seamus on his bed! so cute. our cats dont use beds or anything (they chew them and play with them) otherwise i would totally try and find one that said cat. that wall of mugs – seriously, it was all i had not to go straight to my local store to see if they had it – i really didn’t need any new mugs or spending money so i behaved!! glad to hear you felt like yourself this weekend 🙂 i am definitely adding that series to my goodreads list now.
I bought ones in the past and he never used them, so I was glad he liked this one. He actually wanted that bed over my bed last night. 🙁 I really had to hold back, I did buy two that were gifts and only bought 3 for myself. Oops. It is a really good series, and in my opinion more realistic than 50 Shades, but still the dominant alpha male characters.
Sucks that they didn’t have the pillows but you totally scored in the mug department =) Your nieces are just too adorable and Seamus looks like he is totally loving his new bed!
I know, I was bummed but I guess it was for the best and I found a new place for my mug addiction. 😉 They have such personalities, I just laugh the whole time. They are so sweet. I can’t pull him away, he loves it!
Amy @ The Crazy Wise Woman says
Awall of mugs would be very dangerous for me. I love the WOOF mug… that is so my dog! Have a great Monday!
It was so hard not to buy them all!! Happy Monday!
You found mug heaven!
I’m so glad you can feel spring getting closer too, isn’t it such a wonderful feeling? 🙂
It was EPIC!!! It feels so good. I am so tired of being stuck inside, even though I love getting to read so much.
That bed for Seamus is fantastic!!! And oh man, I need to get to TJs or Marshall’s soon – that mug collection is amazing.
He is loving it. I was so shocked they had such a huge selection I don’t remember it being that way before. Love it.
Brianne Bracco says
Yay for birthday celebrations!! And talk about mug city!! I’d probably be there for hours trying to decide haha
It was amazing. I was a little overwhelmed and wanted them all. I almost wanted a carriage. Haha!
Krystal @ Krystal's Korner says
I’m going to have to add those Maya Bank’s books to my wishlist. I’m constantly looking for new books to read. I tried 50 shades of gray but I didn’t like the writing style so I hope this series is better!
I really liked it, it had the dominant male character but they were more believable and very protective. I really liked the female leads too, they were more likeable, and had a strength to them.
Once again Seamus puts a smile on my face! He looks like he is in Heaven with his head off the bed. Ha!
Love all those mugs! Wish we had more cabinet space for fun ones like those!
Aww thanks, he is my little sweet pea. He has managed at least 50 different positions. I legit built my own mug rack to make room for my addiction! Haha!
Lindsay T says
love those mugs! What a good weekend!
It was so hard to choose. It was a great weekend.
Jana @ Jana Says says
I love all your mugs. I need to start adding a few to my collection. And by collection I mean the one I actually have.
Glad to hear you’re finally starting to feel like yourself again!
Haha! Only one mug??? I think one or two more would be good. 😉 I am a bad influence though. haha! This Winter was draining and as much as I love staying inside reading I really like to get outside too.
chelsea jacobs says
Ha! That first mug is so funny. And true!
Right! They are always begging trying to get a tiny morsel.
Glad you are feeling more like yourself 🙂 I love all of your mugs! The anchor pillow sounds like something I would totally want too! TJ Maxx/Homegoods is so great for those things! And I love Seamus on his new bed! too cute! I get all of my dog beds at TJ Maxx, such great prices.
Just being able to get outside a little more helps. I couldn’t believe how wide the selection was this time. He is in love with that bed, and the price was right.
Meghan @ Champagne & Suburbs says
Such fun mugs! Happy Belated Birthday to your pops! And Seamus is seriously SO cute! xo
I wanted them all!! Thank you, it was good to celebrate with him. He was adorable how quickly he was all over the bed.
I love mugs too. I try and recycle or repurpose the ones not in circulation any longer, but I only end up with too many mugs. Love them though! Happy birthday to your dad! Your nieces are beautiful, Auntie!
I am replacing a lot of the cups in my house so I can justify buying mugs. Haha! They are good for soup, yogurt, or ice cream too. 😉 Thank you. They are adorable, and always make me laugh.
Bri @ My Life As... says
I love all the mugs! I want/need more.
It is such an addiction. I love finding them.
OMG, the mugs! ALL THE MUGS! I really might have a “problem” when it comes to mugs. Love it and you got some cute ones!
I can’t help myself when i see them, I really don’t have the space for anymore but I will make space!! haha!
Kay R. says
Oh man I love mugs!!! Yay for celebrating your dad. As usual your nieces are adorable and so is seamus!
So many cute ones. He really likes to be low key, and it was good spending time with them all.
i bought 4 mugs at WDW and managed to get them all home unbroken! i would be in mug heaven over there. i actually want some retro ones made with milk glass/anchor hocking. my granny had those when i was little so it makes me think of her.
It was so awesome. Ohh the milk glass ones are really pretty. Wonder where you could find them.
Emily @ Martinis & Bikinis says
I love the ‘favorite child” mug. That’s so cute! Good to know it’s warming up a bit and hope Spring comes sooner than later for you!
I just had to get it, he is a pretty good jokester. It was -9 this morning so I am back to hibernating! :/
Hawkeye is so picky about dog beds too. Because she gets too hot. But I think she really liked one of the ones at my mom’s house, so I may get her that as a back up to her water bed.
I love that Hawkeye has a water bed. What a spoiled pooch, as she should be.
Mugs are so addictive and dangerous!
They are, it is so hard to resist buying another one.
Heather (@mylittlehea) says
Oh gosh I LOVE that dog bed! I know TJ Maxx doesn’t usually have the same stuff but I’m going to have to check the ones around us to see if they have it. Boomer has been in need of a new bed, we have been making him use a small pillow because we haven’t found the “perfect” one that easy to clean, etc. So glad you’re loving the Maya Banks series. My fav was the first one, but I’m glad you liked the second one better and SOOO much better than Fifty!
They had a lot of cute dog beds. Yes, Jace would have been my choice if I came across his character in real life. 😉
Bahahahah… you need a mug intervention!
I totally do, they are getting out of control. I am putting myself on a no buy mug ban.
