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!
This morning, I (Jeni) am thinking about crazy Texas weather! It’s always crazy weather here in Texas, that’s for sure. As you can see, we are all over the place. One day it’s freezing, and the next it’s in the 60s and 70s. I LOVE cold weather, so you can see that today (33 high 21 low) is right up my alley and I’m loving it! I wouldn’t mind trading those 70s days there toward the weekend, for some of your snow days, if anyone is up for a trade! 🙂 I’m pretty bummed we haven’t seen any snow, because I definitely love it! Like I always say, “go home, Texas, you’re drunk.” 😉
What’s the weather doing where you live?
Well, one of my favorite book series from my childhood and tween years is back in the news again! Last year, there was an awesome box book series, and now they will be on Netflix! It will be a live-action series with 10 episodes. The series will have all of the girls – Kristy Thomas, Mary Anne Spier, Claudia Kishi, Stacey McGill and Dawn Schafer, plus new friends. My favorite part of the series is that they aren’t veering off too far from the books. It will be about the friends deciding to open a babysitting business in their town, and will deal with issues that the book presented in the 80s. There’s no definite word on when this will be released, but I’ll be on the edge of my seat until then.
Are you excited for a Babysitter’s Club Netflix series!?
These Everyday Tanks are awesome for workouts, lounging, layering, sleeping in and dressing up. At only $6.99 each, you can grab several in different colors!
This clip-on silicone strainer comes in several colors, is super easy to attach and clean, fits just about every pan and pot you own, AND is just $10!!
I (Sarah) got one of these Bade Jar & Cap Openers for Christmas… and LOVE IT! It really works and is under $5!
This readRest is too cool! It’s about 10 bucks and could come in really handy for those that wear reading glasses, but don’t want to wear them on a chain around their neck!
I (Sarah) am loving this Pac Man 12 in 1 Plug N Play game. It’s a little handheld game pad with joystick that allows you to play classic games like Dig Dug (my personal favorite), Pac Man, Pac Man Plus, Mappy, and more!
What are your favorite video games?
I (Sarah) am loving this cute little Dino Pet. The dinosaur shaped “pet” is filled with Dinoflagellates, a type of marine plankton that make it look like the dinosaur is glowing. I think this is awesome though I haven’t thought it was worth pouncing on the $70 price tag. It’s currently out of stock right now, which is also helping me not spend the money on it 🙂
What have you bought recently that cost a little more, but was totally worth it?
I (Jeni) have to confess. I LOVE eating ice. I call them “Ice Treats” and could chomp on ice all day. However, I cannot STAND to listen to there people chew on ice 🙂 I grab a cup filled with ice, go into the privacy of my office and chomp away! I just saw this amazing machine that makes nugget ice – like you get at Sonic! SO COOL! It’s about $500, though… and I’d probably be eating my way through a batch and having to wait a long time for new batches to be ready 🙂
Are you an ice chewer?
If you have kids, you’ll love this! These are the COOLTECH TM Car Seat Coolers. They are self-insulated and keep your kiddos’ car seats cool for them. Apparently, they keep the seat cool for 6-8 hours, so when you’re out and about on a hot day, your kid can come back to a cooler seat in the car. Obviously, you’d want these for the summer time when it’s super hot outside. Now if they could make one for adults, that would be amazing!
Do you have kids that complain about hot car seats?
Here’s something I (Jeni) am loving this morning! I had a fever over the weekend, and was feeling a bit sick. But my fever broke last night (YAY!!) so I was just feeling a bit sluggish this morning. I got up to grind my coffee beans and saw that my boyfriend, Bryan, had already filled the grinder and put water in the coffee maker, so it would all be ready for me when I got up this morning. How sweet was that!?
Does your significant other do sweet little things for you that make you smile? Share with us!
Donuts are by far our favorite thing to eat and goes great with coffee in the morning! HERE is a quick 5-minute donut recipe with an amazing coffee icing!
