Are you one of the millions of people that wake up every morning and can't function without a cup of coffee? I know I'll raise my hand to that, I'm definitely one of those people.  I love to wake up earlier than anybody else in my house just so I can enjoy my first cup of coffee.  When I had kids I realized that I would make my coffee and before I could even finish the cup I had warmed it in the microwave ten times.  It would without a doubt put a bad taste in my mouth and cause me to be a tad grumpy in the mornings. 

When I became a blogger I instantly was obsessed with coffee cups.  YES, coffee cups.  I can't even tell you how many I've bought but it's ridiculous.  I'm pretty sure my husband has told that I'm not allowed to buy one more coffee cup.  I don't think that will happen but what is the craze with coffee cups? Does a certain cup make the coffee taste better? Does the cup remind you of a special place or vacation? I have to say that I love to drink out of a pretty coffee cup.  I know it sounds crazy but it just makes me happy PLUS I can normally get a pretty cool photo with a good cup.  When you're a blogger you are all about getting good photos. That's why I teamed up with Lerant of Houston for this blog post.  It was such a fun shoot and picking out all these amazing cups was the best part about it by far!

Details: All coffee cups can be purchased at Lerant in Houston, Texas.

Have you ever heard anybody refer to a cup of coffee as a "Cup of Joe"? I've always heard the saying and really started to question the meaning behind it all.  After doing some research I came to the conclusion that nobody knows the full story.  There are quite a few speculations out there but nobody can pinpoint the exact meaning. A lot of people think it refers to the name "Joe" which means "the common man" and so coffee is a drink for the average or common man.  I'm going to go with that because I know I'm just an average person who loves a cup of coffee and not just one!

Happy Monday friends, I hope you got to enjoy your cup of Joe this morning! xo!
