"My Personal Side" Link Up: Favorite Cup or Mug

I love teacher blogs.  I love reading about teachers' classrooms and all of the great ideas teachers have. With that said though, I also LOVE getting a glimpse inside their personal lives.  You know, it doesn't have to be much..... maybe their favorite food, an activity they did with their own kids, that hot new car they just bought, or whatever!  It's just fun to see the person behind the blog. It makes things real for me.  It's a human connection and not just a teacher connection.

And, because I love gaining insight into people's lives.... no, not the stalking kind of insight :-), just fun little tidbits of info, this link-up has been born.  It's called "My Personal Side", and it will allow teachers to share a little about themselves based on the topic given. I am not quite sure about the schedule of things yet, but there will be lots of upcoming topics.


So, here we go!
This first link up is sharing something we all use every day... a cup, a mug, a favorite drink! I have a favorite mug that has a positive message, and it's one that goes hand in hand with my TpT.  It has a quote from Steve Jobs on it that says, "The only way to do great work is to love what you do." I love designing classroom materials so much that it simply doesn't seem like work at all.  When I read this message, it reminds me that life is short, so find and do something that you love. It's a daily reminder.
What will you find me drinking in my mug?  I like to drink coffee in the mornings, typically it is Krispy Creme brand and I can find it at Kroger.  I add milk and Splenda.  It's a perfect way to start my day. During the day, I love Diet Coke. Is it bad that I stop at Sonic almost every day for a large Diet Coke.  Happy Hour is my favorite because it's half price...  Cheers!

  1. There's something great about a good cup. It not only has to look good, but it's got to feel good.

    1. Totally agree! Nothing like a good cup of coffee in a favorite mug! Thanks for stopping by.

  2. Hey Molly,
    This is such a fun post! I love the statement on your mug...so inspirational. My mug doesn't have a phrase, but the one that stays in my head always is "Today's Readers are Tomorrow's Leaders". I create, blog, and teach with this in my heart. I love the work fellow bloggers do to tell the world how much we love being teachers! Thank you for the fun link-up!

    1. Thanks Maggie. You are very welcome. I loved reading your post. Hopefully others will join in because it is so fun to see the different interests everyone has. :-) ~Molly

  3. I love concept of these Linky! A quick and simple way to get to know fellow bloggers beyond the web. The quote on your mug is just perfect!

    My husband and I went on a breakfast date to Krispy Kreme Doughnuts this morning because they were on my mind after reading your post!
