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) don’t like Tidying Up. And I don’t like Marie Kondo. *ducks to avoid flying objects*
I just can’t get into it, and don’t understand why it’s so popular, honestly. I was all excited to watch the series, to see what all of the fuss was about. Everyone I know seems to be in love with this show and this girl, Marie. I watched 3 episodes, and I was BORED. OMG you guys – I was honestly not having fun, but I gave it a good shot. I didn’t just watch one episode and say, “nope.” I watched three full episodes. Marie Kondo was cute at first, but then she just started annoying me. And the show really didn’t teach me anything. Purge your stuff and give everything a home. I’m disappointed and I feel like I’m the only person in the world that didn’t find joy in Marie Kondo!
Is there anyone else out there that didn’t like that show?
I (Sarah) never learned to cross stitch. I always wanted to learn, but no one was around to teach me. When my grandmother was around I was way too young to learn. I recently found this awesome app called Cross Stitch. It’s a free app that lets you “cross stitch” virtually. You choose a picture, and then get a giant grid and you click to fill it in with different colors. There is a color guide on the grid and I found it very therapeutic, sort of like coloring in a giant color by number. The colors fill in by stitching the colors straight onto the grid. For those who know how to cross stitch, you could also use the grids and colors to cross stitch off line free style. This app has been such a great stress buster lately for me.
What’s your favorite stress relieving app?
How berry CUTE! 😉 This Strawberry Shortcake t-shirt is $15.99, and a surprise to find on Amazon.
This 4-pack of Dip Clips is only $6.89, and pretty genius! These are great for dips like chip dip, salsa, queso, peanut butter, caramel…. pretty much anything you want!
Stock up on coffee pods! This 40-pack of Two Rivers Coffee Pods is just $22.78 (that’s 57¢ per pod)…. but check out some of the flavors: blueberry vanilla, butter toffee, golden maple, butterscotch swirl, toasted cinnamon and more! YUM.
Everyone seemed to love the 3-pack of unicorn bags that we posted the other day – so check this out! Cat lovers – this 3-pack cat bags set can be used for makeup, pencils, emergency medical kit for your car, diaper bag items and much more. AND, it’s under 10 bucks!
Dinosaur gummi candy by Haribo? I (Sarah) don’t think it gets any better than this. I picked mine up at World Market.
What cool finds have you found at World Market lately?
This product is GENIUS!!!! It’s patent-pending, and not available yet, but OMG when it comes out, I (Sarah) bet it will be really popular! It’s a peanut butter pump. It pushes the peanut butter down in the jar, so you don’t have to dig it out, AND makes it easier to spread. Plus, you aren’t dirtying a knife!
Would you use this product?
If you love optical illusions, you should totally read this article from BBC. It explains why our brains and eyes see the things it does, and how images can “trick us.” It’s really fascinating! If you don’t have time right now, be sure to bookmark the page.
Do you like optical illusions?
I (Jeni) love juice. My favorite is apple, but every once in a while I’ll branch out and get sassy 🙂 I found this V8 Splash Watermelon Cherry juice and can’t get enough of it. I’m not even a big fan of watermelon OR cherry (cherry even less). However, this juice is so stinkin’ amazing, I am glad I took a risk to try it! I’ve tried the Pineapple Coconut, Tropical and Mango Peach flavors, too, and love them almost as much, too!
What’s your favorite type of juice?
Fish….slippers? These are hilarious and a great gift idea for the fisherman in your life! I (Jeni) bet they would be perfect for walking in water and on slippery surfaces. But for me, they just crack me up because they look so silly!
Do you know someone that would love these?
This right here, friends, is my (Jeni) favorite chicken sandwich. My Potato Cake Chicken Sandwich. It’s ridiculously yummy and fresh, and you can add whatever toppings you want on it! The addition of the potato cake that you make yourself really kicks it up a notch!
What are you making for dinner?
Don’t forget to join us every Wednesday evening at 4pm EST for Happy Hour!
