Want more Morning Coffee? Catch up on the fun you missed HERE!

Good morning, my lovlies!!!  Last night, Sarah told me (Jeni) the best news EVER!!  The Golden Girls Clue game that we told you about a few weeks ago (read more about it in detail HERE), is going to be released on July 24th, according to this company on Amazon that’s taking pre-orders right now!  WOOHOO!!!!

From the comments on the Morning Coffee post about The Golden Girls Clue, I can tell that I’m not the only one that is giddy with excitement over this news. Soon, friends, soon we’ll be able to figure out the mystery of who ate the last piece of cheesecake, what item was left as evidence, and what room in the house they did it in.  Ahhhhh yes, I can see many a night of sleuthing happening beginning in August 🙂

Are you going to pre-order the game!?

I (Sarah) am so excited that there is an Animaniacs reboot in the works! I LOVED that cartoon when I was younger and I can’t wait to see the reboot and what they do with it. I think it’s a great chance to introduce kids today to the original characters who have no idea who Yakko, Wakko, and Dot are.

My friends and I totally used to fight over who was which character. I always came out as Yakko, which I guess is better than being Wakko when you think about it. But I always loved Dot, she was always my favorite. If your kids (or you) want to re-live all of the fantastic episodes of the original Animaniacs cartoon while you wait for the reboot, you can do so on Netflix streaming.  Meanwhile, I’ll try to contain my excitement for the new series which should be AMAZING!

What cartoon from your childhood would you like to see a reboot of?

I (Sarah) saw the most AMAZING movie last night that I wanted to share with all of you. The movie has been out for awhile, since 2009 actually and is titled Knowing. It’s a science fiction movie, that doesn’t act like your typical science fiction movie. In fact it’s like a disaster flick, sci-fi flick, mystery flick, and scary (but not horror) flick rolled into one movie. Nicholas Cage is the star, and he’s one of my favorite actors of all time.

I rarely get emotional watching movies but this movie made me cry. I liked it so much that I watched it a second time, and very few movies in history get back to back viewings from me. I don’t want to give away any spoilers but if you decide to try the movie, don’t turn it off before it reaches the ending, the ending is the biggest surprise and the best part of the film.

Have you seen any cool movies lately?

I (Sarah) would have loved a home water slide like this when I was a kid. This one is on sale right now for $199.99!

Toddlers will love this kiddie Whale sprayer pool with a sprayer in the shape of a whale. It’s only $13.74 right now!

Adults who want to rest and relax in the pool all day will enjoy this sun tan tub pool float. Just $28.49!

Echo Dots are just $34.99 right now during Amazon Prime Day!  These are regularly $49.99 and an incredible little gadget to add to your home.

Score an adorable Summer Maxi Dress for only $7.99 in several colors right now and sizes Small-XL!  These are regularly $46 and will probably sell out quickly, so hurry!

I (Sarah) love a good potato chip. I am always on the lookout for new flavors. I recently saw in the news that Pringles has released a Top Ramen Chicken flavor. As someone who grew up loving and living on Top Ramen this is exciting news for me. I definitely want to try this flavor.

What food would you like to see made into a potato chip?

I (Sarah) am a huge Grumpy Cat fan! I recently found this adorable plush toy made by Ganz that comes with tags that you can change the collar to say various different Grumpy Cat sayings like “No”, “I have an idea go away”, and “turn that smile upside down”. I love this cat and can’t wait to add it to my collection.

What is your favorite Grumpy Cat saying?

I (Jeni) love protein shakes and smoothies.  I also love when I’m on the go in the mornings, to take my smoothie with me – and this amazing little Portable Blender Bottle is amazing!  It’s a rechargeable blender AND bottle all in one.  Talk about convenience!!

Do you drink smoothies or protein drinks?

If you’re a Star Wars fan, AND love eating with chopsticks – this is the perfect utensil for you!  These crack me (Jeni) up!  How cool to eat with these Lightsaber Chopsticks!!

Would you have fun eating with these?

What is this amazingness!?  Look at these ADORABLE and funky shoes!  I (Jeni) think I’m in love!!  I was browsing Amazon earlier this morning and spotted these.  I can’t take my eyes off of them now…..

Would you wear these funky Mary Jane Shoes?

Those of us lucky enough to live in the south, know that nothing beats Whataburger (except, of course, In n Out).  They just released 2 new limited-time biscuits that looks SO yummy and different – Spicy Strawberry Chicken Biscuit and Spicy Strawberry Sausage Biscuit!  I (Jeni) am IN!

Do you live near a Whataburger? Will you try one of these?

Seriously.  This looks amazing, right?  That’s because it IS!  This Corn Tortilla Chicken Enchilada recipe will definitely feed the family, and leave them satisfied and full.  It is packed with flavor, and has a lot of room to add your own spices and ingredients, too!

What’s cooking in your kitchen?

  3. AHHH! Animaniacs is coming back! WOOHOO! I used to love that show, and looking back on it, I can see that it was NOT just a kids show. There was some really adult content in there. I can’t wait to see how the reboot is handled. SO AWESOME.

    • Stacie, I know right, Animaniacs was awesome! You can watch the original on Netflix in the meantime, and it’s definitely not a kids only show. So much of the content went over my head when I was younger, but I totally get it now. Thanks for joining us!

    • Kristen, there is so much great Golden Girls merchandise becoming available right now, it’s awesome for fans. Thanks for joining us!

  6. What?? LOL Top Ramen Chicken Pringles!? I must find these locally! I have no idea what food I would like seen made into a potato chip. Maybe Massaman curry lol

  10. My kids would LOVE the water slide. We did so much running around today and it’s crazy hot. The water slide would be an awesome way to cool off.

    • Danielle, water slides are awesome for summer, how cool would it be for your kids to own their own water slide? That’s the great thing about having kids, you can buy them all the things you didn’t have when you were a child that you want now as an adult. Thanks for joining us!

  15. Love a good potato chip too. I love trying out Pringles’ new flavors, but I haven’t tried the Top Ramen Chicken flavor, yet. I will look for this.

    • Toni, Knowing is the perfect movie for movie night! I enjoyed it immensely. There’s not too many movies that I will watch more than once, but this is movie gets better and better every time I see it as I notice things I didn’t notice the previous time I watched it. Thanks for joining us!

  17. Agreed – I’m totally going for the Golden Girls Clue! It’s my absolute favorite since my grandmother passed.

    • Autumn, it looks like Golden Girls Clue will be quite popular. You might want to pre-order it, as I have a feeling that the fans are going to sell the game out in most stores. Thanks for joining us!

  19. Pool floats are such the rage right now! And that golden girls clue is awesome!

    Wow! These are awesome! I always love Pringles and I need to try some of these new flavour.

    • Victoria, it seems like every time I turn around Pringles is releasing a new flavor. I don’t think there’s any way that I would ever be able to keep up with them! Thanks for joining us!

  22. My grandma used to watch Golden Girls all the time. This Clue game sounds like a good one! I’ve never seen “Knowing,” but I’ll have to check it out.

    • Shannon, Knowing is a fantastic movie! It is quickly becoming one of my favorite science-fiction movies. The concept is so different than other movies I’ve seen before. Thanks for joining us!

  23. Gabriel Bregg Reply

    I’m not sure about an Animaniacs reboot. it just seems like something that could only be messed up. Maybe it’s rose colored glasses though.

    • Gabriel, I kind of agree with you on the Animaniacs reboot, though I will definitely give it a chance. I am worried after seeing the DuckTales characters for the reboot (which I think were butchered for the reboot). Animaniacs has definite potential, it will all depend on the writer. Thanks for joining us!
