Simply Hot: My Mug Shot

Ha, I bet you thought it was a mug shot of me.  But nope, sadly, there is no extremely attractive protrait of me with bad hair, red cheeks, and a vacant stare on The Smoking Gun.

Today is the day for Erica and Christy's Simply Hot Blogfest! 


Here's my mug:


A few months after I started working at the library (almost 7 years ago) my boss called me into her office.  A patron had written to the library to say how much he appreciated the time I spent to help him with his question.  There was a gift bag on her desk and in it was this mug.  She thanked me for being a great representative of the library, and how happy she was that she hired me.  I was on cloud nine!  So needless to say, this is my favorite mug.  (Plus it holds WAY more ice cream than regular sized mugs)

Be sure to check out Erica and Christy's blog to look at all the other spiffy mugs my fellow bloggers are gushing over!

Ice cream in a mug -- all the time (and soup and chili)!

Cool mug, and I love the story behind it. What a lift it must give you to look at it and remember being so beautifully appreciated.

It sounds like a trophy as much as a mug! How fun that you can remember that every time you want...ice cream?

I love that you use your mug for ice cream! That looks like it would be a great coffee mug as well. :-) Filled to the brim with Madagascar Vanilla Caramel coffee (just had that this morning!).

Awww, what a great story - it's so wonderful to feel validated at work, especially in the beginning!! And the saying is just perfect for you. Thanks so much for joining, even if your post is a little on the *cold* side!!

I can't think of anything more wonderful than a mug full of ice cream. Thanks for sharing the story behind it.

Mia Hayson said...

That quote is so true though. Wonderful story!

Lisa said...

That is so awesome! What a great gift!

Working at a library seems like it would be the best job in the world (I'm guessing in reality it's probably more of a mixed bag!).
