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 9am CST (7am PST, 10am 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.
Now….refill that coffee and let’s get to chatting with our Morning Coffee!
I (Jeni) love Target. I don’t like that they continue to change their app and add new apps, though. It’s obnoxious and difficult to get into a rhythm when they keep changing things -especially when nothing needed to be changed! So, my area (Dallas-Fort Worth) was apparently the first to get to try the Target Circle program. And it seems to be a hit (according to Target) so they are expanding to Charlotte, Denver, Indianapolis, Kansas City and Phoenix. By the way, I’ve just been reading the reviews and social media comments and haven’t joined yet – because I wanted to see if people feel the same as I do, and if it’s worth it. And it seems I’m not the only one feeling this way.
So, you sign up online. And then you get the perks above. Plus, you get 50% off your first year membership with Shipt and free next-day delivery with Restock. I’ve never heard of those, so I can’t imagine I would use them. Read more about the app HERE.
How do you feel about Target introducing a new app?
You guys all know what a huge Disney fan I (Sarah) am. I’m SO excited about the new live-action Aladdin movie! The trailer came out last week and I cannot wait to see the movie even more now. The trailer looks like a great mix of CGI and live-action, and it features Will Smith as the Genie – how can you get better than that!?
Are you excited about the new Aladdin movie?
“I’m done adulting, I’m going to Disney” – how cute is that!? These Disney shirts come in several colors and sizes and they are just $16.99!
This little gadget is the Frienda Foldable Outlet Shelf! It sits around and above your outlet, so you can have a space for your phone while it charges, your Amazon Echo or other devices or gadgets! It’s pretty genius, and it’s just $11.99.
OMG this is hilarious! These Wine Watchers hang out on the stem of your wine glass, so you know which glass is yours! A 6-pack of these adorable things is only $6.67.
Here’s a fun little treat! It’s Unicorn Lip Gloss! A 3-pack is just $9.99. My (Jeni) 5-year old would go NUTS over these! She’s a huge makeup and unicorn fan. 🙂
What in the world? I (Jeni) saw this ice cream at Kroger last night. I didn’t buy it, but I looked it up… and it’s popcorn ice cream with chocolate bits and a caramel swirl. Whaaaa??? I LOVE me some popcorn, but popcorn low-calorie ice cream? hmmmmm
What’s the weirdest flavor of ice cream you’ve seen or tried?
This is too cool. It’s called Addalock. It’s a portable door lock that installs in seconds without tools. It’s that simple. It’s highly rated and has some pretty interesting and awesome reviews, too. How CLEVER! What a great item to take with you when you travel!
Can you think of a time you might use this lock?
Did you know there are different versions or themes for Candy Land!? I (Sarah) love the simplicity of the game and think it’s pretty brilliant. But adding in Disney to the mix makes it even better! I found this Disney Princess Candy Land AND a Disney Theme Parks Edition Candy Land. I’m in heaven! 🙂
What Disney version game would you like to see?
Last night, as I was scrolling through Instagram, an ad came across my feed. No biggie – those are always there. But this one caught my eye. It’s an Amazon add for 24K plated gold “Grillz.” First – I had no idea you could buy “grillz” on Amazon. Secondly, how many people buy these? It must be a lot to get an AD up about them, right? Maybe people just click on it because they are shocked and curious…. which means the ad works. Either way, it’s silly and shocking and crazy!
Have you seen an ad that made you laugh lately?
Ok. This might be the coolest gift idea ever. And I (Sarah) might have to get one for myself. I deserve a gift! 🙂 These are Personalized Favorite Lyrics Posters. You put in the name of the artist, the title of the song, optional words at the bottom, pick your color, and they create it! Plus, it’s under $25, which shocked me! These are TOO COOL for the music lover!
What song would you use?
Ok, guys. This is my (Jeni) Asian-Mexican fused meal! It uses InnovAsian’s frozen General Tso’s Chicken and meshes it into a street taco with a cool coleslaw on top! It’s got a ton of fun flavors that all marry really well in it. PLUS, I’m hosting a giveaway for some coupons and other goodies! Go HERE to enter and get the recipe (it’s SUPER easy and seriously yummy).
Do you ever create fun fusion recipes?
