Grab a cup of coffee (or tea), sit back, and chill out for a bit with us this morning! We’re so happy you joined us for our morning coffee! We’ll meet you every weekday morning, right here on the blog, around 7am CST (5am PST, 8am EST) to share a cup of joe with you, talk about what’s on our minds, sneak in some awesome deals we spot, talk about our meal plans for the day, and anything else that comes up! Feel free to chat it up in the comment section, and tell us how you’re feeling, what’s going on with your life, current events, things you’re excited about or bummed out about, and anything else you want to chit-chat about. Not sure who we are? Head over to Meet The Ladies, to meet Jeni, and Reviews by Clo to meet Chloe (you can call her “Clo”!)
Did you miss us yesterday, or any other day this week? Catch up and keep the conversation going by stopping over HERE!
Now….refill that coffee and let’s get to chatting with Morning Coffee today!
Last night my friend told me a bit about looking up your ‘birth map’. I, Clo, have always been one who loved the stars, signs, astrology, the works, so I knew I had to give it a shot. And oh my how accurate this thing is! It got me down to the T. I couldn’t have described myself more perfectly. It’s fascinating how our stars truly share so much about us. See my full chart HERE. You’re also welcome to grab your own chart by using that site too — just click on free charts.

Last night, I (Jeni), was enthralled with a little science! As you probably know (because I talk about it all the time on Morning Coffee), I’m a science junky. I was feeling the need to get my science on, so I searched for a documentary to watch. I found this Welcome to Mars one, and was SO happy I did! I couldn’t stop watching! I had beer in the fridge, bubbles for a bubble bath, a handsome boyfriend to spend time with, and a lightening storm outside I could have watched. But no. Jeni picks a science documentary about Mars. If that doesn’t prove my obsession, I don’t know what would!! 😉
It was fascinating, as the crew followed the dudes at NASA and JPL, as they successfully landed Spirit and Opportunity – 2 rovers that would inspect, collect and send data back to Earth from the surface of Mars. This was the endeavor that showed us there was once water on Mars!
Why is this even important? Why are we spending so much money on space exploration and rover research? Because, as Earth dies, we need to find other resources – outside of our own planet. These resources may help us keep Earth going….or keep humans alive by transplanting us. It’s a big deal.

I, Clo, have been trying to use my photography skills a lot more lately. Here are some of my FAVORITE pictures I took of the week.
Pizza Hut has their Bacon Stuffed Crust Pizza again. It’s magical and ridiculous, and I (Jeni) LOVE IT! I get the Supreme Meat Lovers with this crust, and don’t mind feeling the fat attaching to my squishy belly, because it’s SO good!
OHHHH YAH! This fresh, flavorful recipe of Baked Apple Chicken Sausage & Veggies is so easy to make, and a healthier alternative for your family! Add different veggies, and you’ll have a meal that’s delicious and hearty, in less than 30 minutes!
What’s cooking in your kitchen today?
MISSING PLANE.. Yup that happened again. So this time EgyptAir has lost a flight from Paris to Cairo with 66 on board. I don’t really get how a plane that big can just go missing. This seems to be happening much more frequently though. This isn’t the first time this year a big plane has gone missing. It’s heartbreaking for the family. I’m not sure what I would do. I hope everything turns out okay — but based on the last few plane disappearances, things don’t looked that good. Read the full story HERE.
Jeni’s thoughts on this story:
I got an alert last night on my phone about this, and was immediately intrigued. With all of our technology we have now – HOW does this happen? And this isn’t even the first plane to “disappear,” either! I’ll totally be following this story today, and praying for the passengers and families.
What’s on your mind today? Leave us a comment, and let’s keep the discussion going!
