Love of the Bird Variety

This is one of those random posts, but I like to write these now and then. Last time I said that I’d share with you one of my favorite things. So here goes. It’s one of those simple pleasures things and I just love it. Okay, here it is…

I LOVE my bird cup!!! You know how sometimes you have a favorite cup or mug and you drink out of it as much as you can? Well this is mine! :-) My bird cup is a fairly new addition to my life around the Yellow House.

Here’s the back story on my fave cup. So, Brit Boy and I were out Christmas shopping a few months back. And as we were searching for gifts, I spotted this cup. Actually Brit Boy spotted a cup he liked first, but it isn’t a bird cup. Anyway, when he got his, I saw mine and I was sold! It's kind of weird looking and that's why I liked it and I'm easily amused ;-)

I’ll tell you, I don’t know if it’s purely psychological, but EVERYTHING tastes better in this cup. LOL. I drink green tea, white tea, chai latte, coffee, hot chocolate…everything under the sun in this cup. It gets a varied workout. But here’s what I love…it’s a good size to have soup in too. One note though, this photo makes it look's not. LOL. This is just an extreme close-up. Anyway, it’s my standard go-to favorite these days. I may be a bit obsessed with this cup, but who cares. Gotta have some pleasures in this life, right? ;-)

My next post will be a foodie post. I’ve been in the kitchen again. As I mentioned before, I’m not a great cook, but I love giving it a try from time to time and I promised to share the hills and valleys in my culinary adventures. Well, yesterday I had a bit of a high point, so I’m gonna share that. But don’t worry, I’ll still share my kitchen wrecks too….LOL. That’s really funny stuff sometimes.

Have a great weekend!

That's a cute cup. Not a great cook? I'm not sure about that one since I've seen some great looking dishes on your site. :-)

Cute cup. I have a go-to mug also. And everything does taste better out of it!
