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!


One of my (Jeni) all-time favorite shows is and always will be Beverly Hills 90210.  Those kids graduated the year before me, so I was living the California high school experience alongside them.  In light of the sad news about Luke Perry, the timing is awkward, but I’m still excited!   So, Jason Priestley, Jennie Garth, Ian Ziering, Gabrielle Carteris, Brian Austin Green, and Tori Spelling are all coming back. This news hit just before Luke Perry had the stroke and passed away. 🙁  Heart-breaking.

It will be a 6-episode series this summer on Fox.  But it’s not the 90210 we’re used to at all.

The official description of the show explains the difference between the fictional characters 90210 and this new version. “The core cast will all play heightened versions of themselves in a brand-new serialized drama — with a healthy dose of irreverence – that is inspired by their real lives and relationships. Having gone their separate ways since the original series ended 19 years ago, Jason, Jennie, Ian, Gabrielle, Brian and Tori reunite when one of them suggests it’s time to get a Beverly Hills, 90210 reboot up and running. But getting it going may make for an even more delicious soap than the reboot itself. What will happen when first loves, old romances, friends and frenemies come back together, as this iconic cast — whom the whole world watched grow up together — attempts to continue from where they left off?”

Count me IN! I kinda wish they would just pick up in the fictional series, and all come together for  a reunion or something to continue to play their characters… but this could be fun, too.

Are you going to watch the new 90210 series?!


These amazing 3D Puzzles are so popular and unique!  This Disney 3D Puzzle is adorable because it has Mickey and Minnie are sharing a sweet kiss!  It’s $24.99 and makes a great gift for the Disney fan 🙂

Do you have a cat that loves to play?  This UPSKY Cat Roller Toy is just $6.99 – so if she doesn’t play with it and prefers the Kleenex box as a toy, you aren’t out a bunch of money!

These Mr. Sketch Washable Ice Cream Markers are so much fun because they are scented in ice cream flavors! This 6-pack is $10.51.

Scrunchies are BACK in fashion, ladies.  That’s something we never thought we’d see again, for sure.  This 24-pack of Scrunchies is just $9.99!  So, they are cheaper than I (Jeni) remember them being when I was in high school! 🙂


Neither of us has a dog, but we have friends with dogs, so we thought this things was pretty neat and had to share!  This is the Bissel Bark Bath – it’s a portable bath for your dog!  It’s like a vacuum that washes your pup at the same time, so you can give them their bath anywhere, without the mess.  Pretty cool!

Would you like one of these for your dog?

Personally, I (Jeni) like my toast toasted so I’ll go with 7 or 8.

I (Sarah) like mine a little less toasted, so it’s easier going down.  I’ll pick 5 or 6.

….and go!  Which is your preferred toast intensity?

This is a new site to me (Sarah), but I love it so much already!  Always Fits has a weird assortment of items – including retro 80s stuff and kitchen items.  But these oven mitts really caught my eye because they are hilarious!  Some are a little more harsh with the swear words, while others are just silly.  Check them out!

Have you found a new website that you’re loving lately?

Love Kellogg’s products so much that you want to wear socks to prove it!?  Now is your chance! 🙂  These socks are a Kellogg’s Gift Box Socks pack of 4…. for $50.  Yikes!  OR you can always go to Amazon to get a 3-pack of different Kellogg’s socks for $30.  Since when did socks become so expensive!? They are fun, though!

Would you spend $10 or more on a pair of SOCKS?

This girl, Amanda Valentine, is an inspiration, for sure!  She lost 117 pounds by walking more, eating more veggies and drinking more water.  WOW!  Follow her story and get more details about how she did it HERE!  We <3 stories like this!

Do you have a great workout/diet plan in your life?


Peanut Butter and Jelly French Toast… oh my gosh.  This sounds absolutely amazing!  I (Sarah) am making this for dinner tonight with a side of bacon and orange juice.  Because breakfast for dinner is ALWAYS fun!  I can’t wait to see how mine turn out….probably not like the picture 😉

Do you ever have breakfast for dinner?


Don’t forget to join us every Wednesday evening at 4pm EST for Happy Hour!





  1. omg pb and jelly FRENCH TOAST_ what in the world !! ill be making this asap for sure ha and so sad to hear about luke perry passing away- ive actually never watched the show but i might now!

    • Jeni Hawkins Reply

      HAHA seriously – I’m coming over for breakfast!!!

  2. It was sad to hear about Luke Perry passing away just when 90210 is coming out once again. Love those cute oven mitts.

  3. I am not a fan of the Target marketplace thing. I do not like the third party seller options on Walmart or Amazon. I have never had good luck with them.

  4. Loved Amanda’s Weight Loss story! I lost 100 pounds last year by making better choices, eating smaller portions and exercising regularly. It’s been literally life changing! Also, my kids LOVE the Mr. Sketch scented markers. They regularly use their allowance on them!

    • Jeni Hawkins Reply

      OMG! That’s AMAZING, girl! That’s seriously so inspiring – WAY TO GO!! WOW!!!!

  5. #5 for that toast! Yep. That looks perfect to me. Maybe even a little # 4. I guess it depends on my mood, hahaah!
    And I was never a 90210 person. I remember the theme song tune but that’s pretty much about it.

  6. I love the fact that scrunchies are back! Now I can share that craze with my daughter!
    (And I love Target the way it is NOW)

    • Jeni Hawkins Reply

      It’s awesome about scrunchies – so cool to share with your daughter!

  7. My gosh I don’t think I’ve ever seen a toilet frozen like that before but it freaks me out. LOL I cannot believe that scrunchies are back. It seems like everything from the 70s 60s and the 80s are all coming back.

    • Jeni Hawkins Reply

      LOL! It’s so funny that scrunchies are BACK!

  8. I need those markers. I bet they’ll smell great.

    I’d prefer Target not be a marketplace. Ugh. I love the store and I’ll still shop there of course, but I am not a fan of that idea.

    • Jeni Hawkins Reply

      I really want the markers, too!
      Yah, I agree with you about Target.

  9. Three or four for toast. Only monsters eat it burnt to a crisp. I have to stay away from Target. I spend way too much in there.

    • Jeni Hawkins Reply

      ohhhh so not as burnt… LOL I’m a monster!!! GRRRR


    The cat toys looks really good. I must mention that to my parents as they will be getting a cat soon and will need to get some toys in.

    • Jeni Hawkins Reply

      Perfect! Cat toys are pretty silly, because they always like cardboard!

  11. It will definitely be interesting to see what they do with the 90210 characters. I might tune in to see what it’s like!

  12. OK how cool are those 3D puzzles! I need to grab one! Yesterday was such a sad day with deaths, what with Keith Flint dying as well.

  13. My cats would love that roller toy! They have a flat roller toy and they’re obsessed with it. I have to take the ball out when I go to bed because they make so much noise.

  14. close to home Reply

    What an iconic lost for those of us in our 40’s and 30’s.

  15. Love those socks and scrunchies… my daughter has been begging for them, guess all the girls are wearing them.

  16. Peanut butter and jelly French toast is such a fun idea! And your mention of Target has me thinking of running over there to do a little shopping. Many good wishes to you for a great week!

  17. Reesa Lewandowski Reply

    OH what a genius idea that PBJ is!!!!! I need to order those scrunchies! They are hard to find in stores now!

  18. I didn’t know that they were bringing back 90210. Without Luke Perry it just won’t be the same!

  19. I will be tuning in to the 90210 reboot. What sad news it was to hear about Luke Perry. I prefer my toast between #6 & #8.

  20. I would imagine the scented markers are still a really big hit! The Kellogg’s Gift Box Socks would be fun to wear. I think my wife would like these.

  21. My sister loved 90210, so I grew up watching it. I enjoyed the show, not sure if I’m going to watch the series though.

  22. I am so sorry for Luke Perry. Heart breaking too. It’s so sad. I grew up with that TV show!

  23. I am definitely excited for the 90210 reunion however, and so saddened about Luke Perry’s passing. I was so shocked when I heard about his stroke.

    90210…the timing of the reboot announcement and Luke Perry passing, my heart can’t take it this week. I also need a new oven mitt, I burnt my thumb this week and finally threw my old one out. Have a great week.
