The Daily Grind

Like many people, we rarely go a day without a coffee (or two or three). Whether it be hot black coffee, iced cold brew, or my weekly Starbucks latte, we love it in all shapes and sizes.

Since hanging our coffee mug pegboard a couple months ago, I've been wanting to add some cute mugs to our collection and get rid of the mugs we've accumulated over the years that we don't really care for anymore. A few weeks ago, Urban Outfitters had a huuuuge 70% off sale, and while I would have loved to order many, many things, I settled on two new coffee mugs to adorn our pegboard wall. (Still on sale for $4.99 each!)

Rise and Shine Mug
Third Coffee Mug
That third coffee mug is definitely coming into the office with me. Of course now I've spotted a bajillion more mugs to put on my wish list for down the road. I've compiled some of my favorites so maybe you can enjoy them during a lazy Sunday brunch even if I can't! (Click the photo to see each!)
I think just about everyone has the "But first, coffee" travel mug, but I still just love it. If DIYing a mug is more your thing, don't forget to check out our tutorial for painted mugs. We still love and use those mugs on the regular - they hold up really well in case you were ever wondering!

So which one of these is your favorite? Are you more of a coffee or tea kind of person? Do you have a favorite mug that you'll never part with? Share with us below!

  1. I love a good coffee mug! I am a tea drinker, though :) Those cat ones in the bottom right are awesome - I may need to get my hands on something like that next ;)

    1. The cat ones are so cute! I may have to order those to hold me over until I can get a real kitty.
