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, my beautiful friends, is my espresso maker.  On my counter.  At my home. I know, it might not be that big of a deal to many of you…but it is to me!  I’m in LOVE with it!  I got it for Christmas from my boyfriend, and have used it a ton since then.  I absolutely adore being able to make a latte at home, and save that $7 I would spend at Starbucks!  I always say that when I’m out and about and want a coffee, I’ll go to McDonald’s (because the McCafe coffee is actually amazing, and only a dollar).  But when I want espresso or a latte, I’ll go to Starbucks.  It’s so much fun to have an espresso maker at home, and I’m always looking for fun new latte recipes to try out.  And saving that money by skipping Starbucks is amazing!  For a coffee junkie like me that drinks the stuff all day, this is heaven.  #espressoforever!

If you’re a coffee fan, too, what’s your favorite coffee maker at home?

Energizer just created the world’s most powerful cell phone battery.  Using it regularly, you will only charge it once a week.  That’s right – it only requires a charge one time in 7 days if you use it like normal.  Without using it very often, it can last 50 days.  You can watch videos on it for 48 hours straight, off one charge.  This is THE battery of all batteries, that’s for sure! Note that the battery comes with the phone…and you couldn’t get it for your existing phone. That’s kind of a bummer, but I get that they need to sell their products, too.

Would you change your phone to an energizer phone for this battery?


I (Sarah) absolutely love Sharpies.  I use them for everything.  These AmazonBasics Permanent Markers are just as good, only cheaper! This 24 pack is under $12…. you won’t find Sharpies for that price!

HAHAH!  This is so cute! It’s a Shark Pet Bed for small dogs or cats!  It comes in several color choices, and  it’s under $20.

If you love growing things – check this out!  This Rain Cloud Watering Pot is so cute!  It’s only $12.59 right now!

If you’re a meal planner, you probably prepare freezer meals, right?  This Hands-Free Baggy Rack is just $6.99 and would certainly come in handy!


A Lobster Claw Oven Mitt.  This is gold.  And hilarious!! 🙂

Do you have any fun kitchen gadgets that are out of the ordinary?

Yes, please!  Seconds, please!  Thirds and fourths, please!  Just leave the bowl, please 🙂  This amazing list of 65 five-ingredient comfort food dishes from Taste of Home is so much fun to go through and pick out recipes for the future.

Which recipes caught your eye?

If you’re a 90s kid and love coloring for relaxation and fun – you’ll want this 90s Coloring Book!  It’s filled with fun images that will ignite your nostalgia, for sure!

Captain Marvel, the latest in the Marvel movies, comes out tomorrow, March 8th!  It’s not getting as much buzz as we normally see for Marvel movies, which is kind of weird, but we hope it’s good.

Will you see the movie?

These prescription bottle coffee mugs are totally custom made because you can personalize them!! Aren’t they so much fun?

Do you know someone that would appreciate this funny mug?


This White Pizza with Parsley Pesto Drizzle is on the menu for me (Sarah).  My boyfriend, Kevin, and I absolutely love pizza, but we always eat the same kind over and over.  Tonight, we are branching out and trying this new recipe!  Wish me luck!

What is your favorite make-at-home pizza?


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



  1. OK thank you so much for the tip on the amazon markers, I love sharpies but gosh they can be so expensive, I’m trying the amazon ones next!

    • Jeni Hawkins Reply

      Agreed, they are ALWAYS so expensive! UGH! Glad you like this deal!

  2. I just use a plain, old-fashioned coffee maker. I’m a simple girl. I like my coffee black.

    • Jeni Hawkins Reply

      HAHA! Hey, nothing wrong with that, girl!

  3. I have a collection of Sharpies. Permanent markers are great for different craft projects and school projects. I have them in all sorts of assorted colors. This looks like a good price on permanent markers.

  4. I’m a huge fan of Sharpies as well. I love using them for my planner and crafts. I also need to get the storage bag holder. Genius invention!

    • Jeni Hawkins Reply

      Seriously genius invention – that’s for sure!

  5. I wish I liked coffee. I love the smell, but I never cared for the taste.

    Ooo I need that shark bed for my cats. How fun!

  6. First off, that pizza looks amazingly delicious! Second, I can’t wait to see CAPTAIN MARVEL this weekend! Love MCU films.

    • Jeni Hawkins Reply

      WOOHOO!! Have a great time at the movies!

  7. Are use my phone all the time. I would love it if I did not have to plug it in constantly. I will definitely have to check into this.

    • Jeni Hawkins Reply

      Can you imagine not needing to charge it for a WEEK!?

  8. I love Amazon markers and I must get one of those hand-free baggy racks. I use zip bags all the time putting up items in the freezer. Thanks for sharing.

  9. I saw Captain Marvel and it was awesome. Girl Power and 90s nostalgia rolled into one movie.

    • Jeni Hawkins Reply

      HAHA! So random, but so much love, right!?

  10. We make pizza all the time. I’ll have to try that recipe, it looks delicious! I am looking forward to watching Captain Marvel.

  11. The rain cloud watering pot is adorable but an espresso maker on the counter is priceless! It pairs well with the prescription strength coffee mug.

  12. Gladys Nava Reply

    Wow! Such beautiful stuff here! My attention hooked by the shark pet bed, it’s so so cute and I love it.

  13. How many amazing things in this post! I would like those Sharpies. Looks so convenient!

    • Jeni Hawkins Reply

      OMG how cute would a little chihuahua be in that!?

  14. Wow so many great things to choose from. I love the rain cloud watering pot. it’s a great way for children to learn responsibility by looking after their own plant.

    • Jeni Hawkins Reply

      It’s that adorable!? And that’s a great point about kids!

    • Jeni Hawkins Reply

      That’s awesome, Rachel – Thanks for letting us know they help!

  15. I love reading this post! So many great choices and well, for me, Coffee is always included in my daily activities. Definitely an energy booster to keep me during the day.

    • Jeni Hawkins Reply

      100% girl – I’m a coffee all day kinda gal, myself!

  16. That cell battery is THICK! It reminds me of the old iPods when they were first released. Surely there has to be a thinner way to make a long lasting battery.

  17. That holder for the zip log backs is perfect! I so need this, we do a ton of meal prep, this would really come in handy. Thanks, ordering one!
