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!
Before anyone says, “no way, those look tiny!” or “those can’t be a 12, because they look so small!” – remember that there’s no point of reference in the image – no hand or foot or pencil or anything. 🙂 Now that that is off my (Jeni) chest…. check that out! It’s not that surprising! My goal jeans in one brand feel 2 sizes smaller than the brand I have. It’s pretty crazy, and VERY frustrating. I can’t just have a goal SIZE – I have goal JEANS that I want to fit into. I wonder if men have this issue…..
Have you found that sizes differ between brands, too?
I (Sarah) can appreciate art. I have a different type of style that I prefer, but I appreciate all art. So when I stumbled upon this sushi art, I was mesmerized! This guy that goes by the Instagram handle mikyouiOO, wanted to teach his son an appreciation for sashimi – which is a Japanese delicacy consisting of very fresh raw fish or meat nicely sliced into thin pieces. He started showing his kid, and wanted him to think outside of the box – and that’s how this art form was created! I look at these and cannot believe they are all FISH!! It’s pretty incredible! Talk about playing with your food 😉
What kind of art do you like?
These Lazy Paws Adult Slippers are SO much fun! There are 14 different animal choices, so you’re sure to find one that fits your personality. I (Sarah) just bought myself a little gift – shark slippers! They are only $17.99, too!
If you’re a cat lover and appreciate steampunk style, you’ll love this. It’s a steampunk cat necklace for just $1 + free shipping! SCORE!
These are Snappy Seals and they are magnetic sealers for bags. They have a “fresh lock seal” that keeps food fresher, longer by keeping the bag closed better than a regular clip. You can also use these for organizing cords (see their suggestion on the site). A 6-pack is just $14.50!
OMG these Silicone Baking Liners are so cute! This pack of 24 comes with 4 different shapes (6 of each) for just $8.99! I (Jeni) love the star and heart!
I (Sarah) hate carrying purses. I’m just not a purse kind of girl. But I still need to carry my phone, keys, wallet… so this awesome Crossbody Bag is perfect for me! It’s only $10.99 and comes in a lot of color choices, and has the perfect pockets for everything, without being uncomfortable when I wear it. If you’re not a purse girl, this is for you!
Are you a handbag or purse kind of girl?
Sonic has a new Brunch Burger. And it looks AMAZING! I (Sarah) know that the pictured images are probably plastic and fake, and obviously look nothing like the real food – but dang, these look amazing! Plus, that’s an amazing deal – only $2.99!? It’s making me drool!
Do you ever seen ads for food that make YOU drool, too?
UNICORN FANS! This is SO COOL! It’s a Unicorn Sconce Wall Light that actually lights up when it’s dark, and looks awesome when it’s light! For the ultimate unicorn fan, only 🙂
Are you on the unicorn bandwagon?
Remember scratch-n-sniff stickers? These remind me (Jeni) of a mix between those, and the Harry Potter gross jelly beans! They are stinky scratch-n-sniff stickers and would be such a fun gag gift! They are cracking me up – here are the scents included: Wet Dog, Race Car, Onion, Zombie, Fireworks, Campfire, Stinky Cheese, Fish, Hot Wings, Bacon, Garbage, Grandma, Dirt, Grandpa, and Cow.
But then, they also have some other not so stinky scratch-n-sniff stickers, too: Chili, Apple Pie, Sour Apple, Spaghetti, Cough Drop, Fresh Bread, Bologna, Baby Powder, Jelly Beans, Mint Chocolate Chip Ice Cream, Hamburger, Cola, Fruit Smoothie, Peanut Butter, and Marshmallow.
What’s the stinkiest sticker you’ve scratched?
Are you excited for the last season of Game of Thrones? It’s coming! And this has to be the ultimate GOT coffee mug, right here. How awesome is that?
Are you a Game of Thrones fan?
This Almond Chicken Salad is something for a little bit lighter dinner. I (Jeni) am going to make it tonight and see how it goes over… but I’m pretty sure it will be a hit! It’s a summer dish, but I DO live in Texas, where it’s basically summer all the time. Plus, we LOVE salad, so I’m pretty excited!
What’s your favorite type of salad?
Don’t forget to join us every Wednesday evening at 4pm EST for Happy Hour!
