I love coffee. Sometimes people try to switch my coffee to decaf when I’m not looking. I can always tell the difference. I also like Pringles, but only the reduced fat kind because they crunch better when you bite into them and they don’t leave grease on your fingers. I’m…

When I was looking to buy my wedding invitations (back in April), I found a lot of designers on Etsy. After narrowing it down to a couple different designs/companies, I contacted both for their pricing list. One was pretty significantly more expensive–almost $2 per invitation more. Which I think all…

When talking to people about photography, I hear one phrase over and over again: Kids and dogs are the hardest subjects to photograph.
I, personally, don’t have this problem with my clients…kids and dogs are among my favorite things to photograph. Maybe it’s because I like to have any excuse…

Weekly Puppies

Last week, Sean and I had our morning coffee on the balcony and watched as the Enterprise shuttle was pulled down the Hudson on a tug boat. It’s on its way to the Intrepid and I can’t wait to see it up close at the museum!

Looking For A Mug…And By Mug, I Don’t Mean Your Face.

I have been searching eBay for the past year looking for a very specific type of coffee mug for Sean. He had this retro 70s or 80s coffee mug that his mom accidentally threw out. It’s those “It’s Better in the Bahamas” mugs and usually has a silhouette cartoon of a couple standing next to a palm tree or something. I’ve attached a picture of the kind of mug I’m searching for below…It’s actually held by Chris Meloni (mmm…) on a Law & Order SVU episode.

Does ANYONE have this mug…or do your parents have a mug similar to this? Seriously, I’ve been searching for so long and yielding no results at all. I am willing to pay for the mug…probably way more than it’s worth! It’s the kind of thing that’s probably collecting dust in your grandmother’s cupboard! Anyway, I figured it was worth at least asking the wonderful internet for help.

    Have you looked on Etsy?

  2. Colleen Says:

    Yep, I’ve looked everywhere. At least everywhere on the internet. I was hoping one of my readers (or my reader’s moms) had the mug and that I could buy it off them!

  3. Ramblin Rose Says:

    Try this site: I think it’s pretty close to what you’re looking for.

  4. Colleen Says:

    Ahhh, it’s so close, Rose! He wants the old vintage-y feel to the 80s ones though. (I know, man that dude is picky!) Thanks anyway!

    Hey Colleen,
    We doing a cruise to the Bahamas during Christmas. Would you like me to look in the gift shops there?

  6. Colleen Says:

    Hey Jeannie,

    Sure, don’t go out of your way or anything, but if you happen to see a vintage looking mug with the It’s Better in the Bahamas logo definitely buy it and I’ll pay you back! =0) Thanks!

    No problem. I love to shop for chotckie-type of stuff on vacation. And I’ll let you know if it REALLY is “Better in the Bahamas” … I just realized something … even if it was an accident, Debbie THREW SOMETHING OUT. I’m shocked (**smiles**). I’m surprised the mug didn’t end up in the guest cottage. She can find a new use for something once it’s lived out its current shelf life. She and Tom are the king and queen of reuse, recycle, reheat leftovers, waste not-want not, etc., etc.
