What's Up with My Cup?

Which cup to chose? THE BIGGEST!
We have a nice spread of cups our house. I'm a tea drinker, and my husband is a coffee drinker. We both need a little jolt of caffeine to start the day. I've noticed that I choose the biggest cup I can in the morning, like a small bucket. I continue to chose the biggest cup among my mugs until THE biggest cup is clean again. Sometimes I will wash the biggest cup to be able to use it THAT day anyway. On weekends there is some bartering for cups between my husband and myself.

We have our favorites. The tall striped cup is my current favorite. It has nice cover and insulated band to go with it. The stouter striped cup was my husband's, (I mean is) but when the cat's away the mice will play. I think it holds the greatest volume and some mornings it's necessary. I love the plaid ones, but I only use them occasionally. The Starry Night cup is a girlio favorite for cocoa and tea. Yes, I'm raising them as little tea drinkers. They already have favorite flavors and favorite cups.

Are you cups normal sized? Or are they supersized like mine?


  1. I always pick the biggest cup! and I will scour the kitchen to find it's location if it's not in the cupboard. So funny. When did this happen? Didn't all cups used to be the same size? When I get "stuck" with a normal size coffee cup, I feel like I'm getting gypped.

    1. Anne, I feel gypped when I have to use a normal sized cup too! I even remember when my husband and I were looking for plate patterns when we got married that we would nix a pattern because the cups were too small. Even those seem small now. lol.

  2. I love that your girls drink tea! :) I asked for a super huge mug for the holiday and my grandma delivered! We prefer the huge ones too! :)
