Making the World Beautiful, One Coffee at a Time

Evening Ladies-
 It is Tuesday-
I thought I was going to get more time in here tonight to work on this magnificent post that
I am working on for WTH Wednesday!

I thought this because the MR
let the Littles (the boys) take the
Xbox to their room tonight!!! Whoo hoo!

That probably doesn't make sense to some of you-

Well quickly,
The boys' room is the bonus room upstairs. They have that WHOLE space!
There are two twin beds, their dressers, a Tv, and Legos and Nerf Guns galore.

Some things they are not allowed to have in their room are the Wii, the Xbox or  a computer.
The MR thinks we can better monitor their time on those things and what they are playing,
who they are talking to, blah blah blah...good parenting...blah blah...

So guess where they end up-
IN.
MY.
OFFICE.

It wasn't until the boys were old enough to bunk together that I was given a space in the
house other than the kitchen table or "Comfy" chair.

I was sooo excited to have it.
Then he bought them a big flat screen for their Xbox-
where did it go?

My office!
Waaaaa.... I was here first!!

Now my time in here on the computer is usually a time
when I can't hear myself think over Minecraft!!!

But tonight there is a sleepover and the MR has to work early- so they
were banished to the upstairs......

Ahhhh the sound of silence.
There is an occasional growl or snort as Truman thinks that Betty
is out to get me-
but other than that.....nothing.....

And then....

"We can't do split screen on the Tv upstairs because it isn't HD! Can we please come back to the office to play?"

So now I have closed the file that I had opened for the post I WAS
working on.

Now that that is out of the way,
I want to talk to you about something very serious
(insert serious face here)
(also, insert slow classical soothing music)

I was goofing off in the van on the way to Hotlanta
and I told some of my bloggy buddies that I had made a new
goal-
I had been checking my Etsy App on and off
(when I was trying to avoid looking out the window)
and I thought to myself

"Self, you have mailed these to quite a few places!"
I am able to view that info quickly on the App.

So I tell my BBBs (Beautiful Bloggy Buddies) that I
am going to get those cute little coffee cozies in EVERY STATE!
And I am going to call it

CUTIE COFFEE ACROSS the COUNTRY

After some goofing around
 (and coloring with color pencils-
I haven't colored with color pencils in YEARS!)
this is what I came up with:


Let me zoom in on the Legend:

 If your state isn't green, then that means you are living in a state
which suffers from The Ugly Coffee Epidemic.

Help me to help you!

Visit my Etsyshop!


I am going to keep a copy of the map in my sidebar-
so you can see the progress too~
What started out as a joke- has turned into a legit goal for me...
who knows- it could go international!!!
(I have followers in Germany, Russia, Argentina and Guam!)
Texas and Michigan are REALLY getting there as there are multiple cozies there!
Even if your state is green- of course you can still order- you can even
order for a friend or relative who may be a
Hot Mama with  Not-So-Hot coffee (if you know what I mean) :)

Here's a testimonial from a Cutie Coffee Lover

-I own TWO coffee cozies. At first my coffees were sad looking and I never got any attention at all when I drank them. Now, that I have the cutest coffee in the world people everywhere stop and look and even SMILE at me. It's amazing how cute coffee has changed my life. Thank you Miss Squirrels for giving me a new life filled with cute coffee.

Well they keep poking their heads in here to see if I am done
posting for the night.
If I don't get out of here they will pester me to death!

Only 6 more days til I start setting up my room- so I guess I should be working on that-
Peace Out-
(K-2 What! What) :)

  6. I just snorted at your above comment to Girl with a Goal hahaha.

    CCAC is a good goal/mission. That would be fabulous to be overseas too. I could hook you up with Germany possibly but I don't think my Oma drinks coffee at out of those kinds of cups.

    K-2 what what, representin'!
