Mugshot Monday - “Minnesota Twins” coffee mug with Columbia Roast by Alterra Coffee
It’s the MN Twins home opener today! I’m wishing I was at Target Field because it’s a glorious day outside. Which is amazing considering we got 6 inches of snow last Thursday here in Minneapolis. 
Special thanks to Meghan for use of her Twins blanket, and to Rachel for telling me where I could find the most amazing Twins coffee mug ever!

Mugshot Monday - “The Masters” coffee mug with Guatemalan Dark Roast at Peace Coffee Shop with guest appearance by Arik Hanson!
We still have significantly sized snowbanks here in Minneapolis, but many of us are thinking SPRING. And if you’re thinking Spring and you are my friend Arik, you’re thinking about The Masters (practice rounds for the 2014 tournament start next week). 
Arik actually had to go the Masters TWO TIMES to get that coffee mug he’s holding because they were sold out the first time he went. I have never been to the Masters, so today I grabbed one of the various donated coffee mugs at the Peace Coffee Shop — because a sun signifies Spring!
By the way, be sure to read Arik’s somewhat controversial blog post Why I’m completely revamping my coffee meet-up strategy. That post actually inspired this Mugshot Monday. It was great to see Arik and drink some good coffee and have some inspiring dialogue. I highly recommend it.

Used the “I Love my Grandma” coffee mug at Peace Coffee Shop today.

Mugshot Monday - “Bad Waitress — Skull & Cross-Silverware” coffee mug with Spyhouse Coffee
I’m on ‘Staycation’ and my wife’s school is on Spring Break, so we get to go out to lunch together! Without kids! 
Love this coffee mug. Great photobomb behind me, too! I wonder who she is?

Mugshot Monday - “Twin Town Guitars” coffee mug with Guatemalan Light Roast by Peace Coffee
I really like Twin Town Guitar store. My two boys are taking weekly guitar lessons there and I saw this coffee mug for sale when I dropped them off — only $3.50! That’s not a deal, that’s a steal! Santa gave them a bass guitar and electric guitar for Christmas and they’ve been jammin’ ever since!
Love Twin Town’s tagline: “Keeping Your Life Loud and Local Since 1997”! Perfect. Got any good Twin Town Guitars stories? Leave a comment or Tumblr Reply.

Mugshot Monday - “@bigboxcar Mug Revolution Twitter Mug” coffee mug with Guatemalan Light Roast by Peace Coffee
I rarely replace a broken coffee mug. But I made an exception with this one.
This is a custom coffee mug hand crafted by Owen Dearing of Mug Revolution out of Bend, Oregon. He has a handy online form where you can choose what goes on the front and even pick custom thumb rests (this one has a bird, of course.)
Put a bird on it my friends!
Back in 2012, I cracked my first custom Twitter mug (sad photo here), but I am so happy to have this one back in the collection. You should make one, too!

Mugshot Monday - “Team Cullen Twilighter” coffee mug with Brazil Poco Fundo Vienna Roast by Flamenco Organic
My friend Meghan Wilker has a birthday this week and all she wanted was to be in a Mugshot Monday with Edward Cullen! We actually managed to arrange this meeting at Clockwork HQ and the photo shoot turned out dreamily — just look at Meghan’s Mona Lisa smile melting toward Mr. Cullen.
I had no idea what a “Twilighter" was, so in case you’re like me, here is Urban Dictionary’s definition:

A human being who is a fan of Stephenie Meyer’s ‘Twilight Series’, consisting of ‘Twilight’, ‘New Moon’, ‘Eclipse’, and ‘Breaking Dawn’. Twilighters are usually quite addicted to the series, and would be considered ‘obsessed’ by some. (Also known as ‘Twi-Hards’)

Also understand (I did not, I’ve never seen Twilight—sorry!) that Edward is a VAMPIRE. But Meghan tells me he’s actually a “vegetarian vampire” so he only consumes animal blood. Nice! Sounds like a good guy to me.
Happy Birthday, Meghan! This turned out super good.
Also noteworthy: Check the Wonder Woman coffee mug photobomb! Perfection.

Mugshot Monday - “Parka Minneapolis” coffee mug with MIXTAPE Blend by Dogwood Coffee
I have a soft spot in my heart for an awesome looking snowmobile.
It was tough to get in the shot, but there is a blue snowmobile hanging on the wall above my head. I’ve wanted to get over to Parka Minneapolis on Lake Street ever since Tom Horgen posted a photo of a Parka coffee mug on Instagram. Today’s mugshot turned into a fantastic brunch with the whole family. Food is great, coffee is fabulous. Thanks to Bryant for the great service! We’ll be back!
Check the design on the other side of this Parka coffee mug which is very cool.

Mugshot Monday - “THE GODDESS CAFFEINA” coffee mug with pens, pencils, scissors and other office supplies
This coffee mug is AMAZING. Look at that handle my goodness. On the bottom of the coffee mug is this fantastic limerick:

CAFFEINAAll hail to the Goddess Caffeina!She hangs out by the coffee machina.We’re all on the run,But we get more work doneSince Caffeina came onto the scene-a!

I am a fan! Thanks to my coworker Margaret for lending me her Caffeina coffee mug! She says it’s a pen holder so she gets to look at it every day. Simply marvelous.

Mugshot Monday - “Werner Electric” coffee mug with Birchwood Blend by Peace Coffee
I would like being an electrician, I think.
The other day, Dustin at Werner Electric in Cottage Grove, MN Facebook’d me asking if he could send me an official company coffee mug! It’s a delightful mug — one of the best company mugs I’ve seen, and I’m very happy to own one.
You’ll also notice he sent a sweet Werner Electric hat. Perfect to wear in the winter when I’m out on the back porch (like in this photo) throwing a tennis ball in the backyard with my dog, Chica Golden Hotwheels (I couldn’t get her in the shot, unfortunately).
Werner Electric is the 18th largest electrical distributor in the United States, I discovered. Seems like the kind of HUGE company that could lack a soul, but if you check their Facebook feed, you get the idea that a bunch of good people work there who really enjoy what they do (Check their Halloween album, for example.)
Thanks Dustin and Werner Electric for the coffee mug! If I do become an electrician someday, I’ll look to you guys for my electrical supplies.

Mugshot Monday - “Travel Far© & Share Stories” coffee mug with Birchwood Blend by Peace Coffee
Those are very inspiring sayings, but the one missing on this coffee mug is, “BE THOUGHTFUL.”
Roberto, my cousin’s husband, gave me this coffee mug over Thanksgiving weekend after hearing about my Mugshot Monday project. I was telling him that every coffee mug has a story and I tell these stories with every mugshot. He thought to buy this mug when he saw it whilst braving the crowds on Black Friday! “Share Stories” by the mug’s handle was the hook. Love it. That’s very thoughtful of him — and we could all be a little more thoughtful these days, I think. Thanks, Roberto & Laurie!
You can read all the sayings on the coffee mug easier on this coffee mug panoramic I took using my iPhone.
