Hubby and I have our "holiday" mugs that I bring out during the holiday season for us to have our morning coffee in. They are kind of special mugs that I've purchased. They match and there are just the two of them for the two of us. We've gone through several sets over the many years.
BUT for a couple of years now I've been looking for new ones because . . . our matching holiday mugs . . . no longer match.
Nor are they very special. Nor attractive.
First, one of the last matching holiday set got broken with the other following not too long after. So we've been using this pair of mismatched mugs. I think they came from when hubby was teaching and, as everyone knows, a coffee cup or mug is always a good Christmas present for your third grade teacher.
About a week ago, I was paging through a catalog and saw some mugs I really liked. I pointed them out to dear husband and then continued on through the catalog.
Today I heard the UPS truck pull into the yard and saw hubby go to meet the driver. Shortly thereafter I came into the kitchen and saw a package on the kitchen table.
I asked if that was what had come via UPS. Hubby said it was and it was for me.
"Me?" I asked. What could it be? The box was definitely too big to be the inserts I had recently ordered for my defective feet.
"Yup, he said. "It's for you."
"To open right now? It's not for Christmas?"
Look what that sweetie had ordered for me. Well, for us I guess as they're the mugs I had seen in the catalog and are now our MATCHING pair of holiday mugs.
I can hardly wait for tomorrow morning's coffee time to test drive them!
Actually, I like them so much I'm wondering what I'd have to do to get Santa's Big Elf to order six more so we have enough of them to use for company, too. :o)
