Mugshot Monday - “Big Red Dogwood Coffee” mug with their Snow Emergency Blend
.
Happy President’s Day!
.
I had the day off and wanted to take my kids to @DogwoodCoffee on Lake Street in Minneapolis. We hadn’t been there since it was called Parka back in the day.
.
As it turned out, everyone else had the same idea because when we got there late in the afternoon they were sold out of pastries!
.
Not to worry because they had plenty of delicious coffee and hot chocolate. I really like the vibe at this location. And they still have the blue snowmobile hanging from the wall! We were all smiles when we walked in.
.
Love this red mug and was so happy when the friendly barista found it in a drawer. They’re now serving coffee in a different heavy diner mug that I’ll be back to feature in the near future. Until then, cheers!

Mugshot Monday - “Art Shanty Project” carabiner mug with Snowshoe Brew by @Peace_Coffee
.
I consider myself an angler, but I’ve actually never been ice fishing.
.
So it was a little hard to explain what an “ice shanty” was to my three boys and how it related to the Art Shanty Project.
.
Best to learn by experience so we all met some friends on Lake Harriet yesterday on the last day of the 2018 Art Shanty Project installment.
.
Three shanties stood out based on my kid’s reactions:
.
1. Monarch Butterflies: Our kids gravitated toward this one and road the Monarch Bicycles all over the ice. They found a sweet JUMP to catch some “air” (kinda). My 15-year-old even helped fix a bike that had a chain come off! First time he’s done that on a lake.
.
2. Mapping Prejudice in Minneapolis: This was jaw-dropping for us. The inside of the shanty had pages from some bullshit racial covenant documents from the 1930s through 1960s stating specified real estate could not be sold or rented to black people.
.
We were told the Fair Housing Act voids the documents, which is good. But I was shocked and unaware of this level of systematic racism in my city’s past.
.
“That’s not really fair,” said my white 9-year-old. Well stated, son. I’m really glad my boys got to see this shanty.
.
3. Thwings: These coolio swings were hooked up to a contraption that moved up and down as people swang back and forth. It looked as if fishing ice-holes could get drilled if proper blades were attached!
.
The Art Cars were pretty rad, too. And the Lonely Whale. And the The Tomb of the Unknown Minnow. And SO MANY MORE! It was awesome.
.
And I adore my new @ArtShantyProjects mug! Check that totally functional carabiner mug handle.
.
Can’t say I’ll ever go ice fishing in the future, but I’ll be back at the Art Shanty Project next year.
.
PS: Shout-out to my sister-in-law Kari who made my Beard Hat – it’s soooo toasty warm. I wore it yesterday on the ice, too. Here’s the pattern if you want to make one: http://www.chickenstitches.com/blog/bearded-beanie-knitting-pattern/

Art Shanty project was rad. The boys enjoyed riding the Monarch bikes on the ice. Caught some “air” on a sweet jump and helped fix a chain that came off. Super fun.

Mugshot Monday - “Eagles vs. Patriots Super Bowl LII” coffee mug with Snowshoe Brew by @Peace_Coffee
.
It was the coldest kickoff temperature in the history of the Super Bowl on Sunday: 3°F in Minneapolis, MN! We’re number ONE! 😂
.
It was pretty NUTS living in the host city of a Super Bowl as we experienced the daily hype and all the traffic. And despite the cold, it seemed like everyone visiting had a good time.
.
As far as the game itself I really wasn’t planning to watch, but I’m glad I did! Because it was SIZZLIN’ compared to the temps outside.
.
I started paying attention just in time to see Eagles quarterback Nick Foles *catch* a touchdown on a trick play in the first half! Beautiful play call on 4th down, my goodness.
.
And I thoroughly enjoyed watching Patriots quarterback Tom Brady getting sacked for a fumble in the 4th quarter. I can’t stand watching The Cheaters play American football, except when they LOSE. Sorry, Patriots fans.
.
I actually thought the Vikings were going to the Super Bowl this year and even predicted they’d win it all. But after watching this game, I don’t think they would have gotten the job done.
.
Both the Eagles and Patriots were legit teams and it had to be the best non-Packers Super Bowl I’ve watched since the Giants took out the Patriots in Super Bowl XLVI. This game set a record for most combined total yards (1,151) in a game – in ANY NFL game. So nuts.
.
On the positive side, think of this my Vikings friends: Your team would have owned the record for most Super Bowls lost by a single franchise if they had lost this year. But now, the Patriots own that record!!! 🤣
.
Btw, are there any street poles left standing in Philadelphia? I saw on Twitter they are celebrating HARD. Be careful Eagles fans.
.
See the other side of the mug on slide 2 — purple sky and all. I wanted a mug that had both team helmets and some sort of shout-out to Minneapolis. This one fit the bill, so I’m stoked. Happy Minneapolis Super Bowl to you! Cheers!

‘Kind of’ watching the Super Bowl and drinking some of my wife’s homemade oolong cherry ginger kombucha. Yum. #GOPACKGO

Tourists are so loving the Mary Tyler Moore statue 😍

$225 Brett Favre Packers mini-helmet at one of the many pop-up NFL SHOPS downtown. I took a pass on that one.
.
Can’t confirm that the Favre Vikings mini-helmet was only $49.99 😂

New snow for our #glassdeer to look over

Stopped by the ESPN broadcast at IDS Center.

This glass deer statue thing looked kind of cool on the backyard bench with all the snow and it caught my eye. 🙌🏻

Mugshot Monday - “You Need a New Job” coffee mug with Snowshoe Brew by @Peace_Coffee
.
I hate this mug.
.
Sure, I’ve had bad days at work — even a few boring ones. But I’d consider it a huge red flag if I thought the best thing about my job was that the chair spins.
.
I found this mug at work in the break room in the spot where people put office supplies they don’t want anymore. I envision someone finally got that new job and decided they didn’t need this sad-trombone of a mug anymore.
.
Good choice! Life is short.

The Art Sled Rally was so fun! But obviously not as fun as riding in this SWEET conversion van sled! (See the smiles on pic number 2) 😀

My favorite mug and my favorite pajamas are at odds with one another. 😂

I’m literally riding the rainbow into work this morning! 😂

Not happy. And #ChicaGoldenHotwheels LOVES THE SNOW. Not right now, apparently.

Mugshot Monday - “Duck Duck Grey Duck” coffee mug by That Minnesota Life with Snowshoe Brew by @Peace_Coffee
.
If you live in Minnesota, this mug makes perfect sense. Everyone else in the country is probably like ¯\_(ツ)_/¯.
.
Dustin Ranem (@elohimito) created the mug for his new MN apparel online store @that.mn.life where his products are “Designed by a Minnesotan, for Minnesotans.”
.
Check out their Etsy shop which is currently stocked with more Minnesota-centric mugs and t-shirts and hats. There’s a ton of SKOL Vikings merch that helped Minnesotans ride the purple wave to the playoffs this year.
.
Unfortunately, that wave has since crashed down with the 38-7 loss to the Eagles in the NFC Championship game last night. I predicted they were going to win the Super Bowl.
.
It was a heckuva season, though! This mug reminds me of the Duck Duck Grey Duck TD celebration by Vikings tight end Kyle Rudolf in week 5 against Chicago. Lots of Minnesotans took to Twitter that day to correct announcer John Gruden when he said the celebration was a game of “Duck Duck Goose!” That was pretty rich.
.
😜 I’m down with it! Even as a non-native Minnesotan, I’m very aware of the proper way to describe the popular children’s game. “Duck Duck Grey Duck” it is! Great mug, Dustin. Cheers!
