This week, we had great conversations about 90210 & new Target.com, experienced drunk Texas, tried 5-ingredient meals, ate a ton of sweets, and had an awesome week with you all!
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 8am CST (6am PST, 9am 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, friends, is the Date Night Wheel! Obviously, it wasn’t my (Jeni) idea – I got it from a post on Facebook where some guy put restaurants on a See & Say. When his girlfriend couldn’t decide what to eat, he would spin it! Bryan and I have date night every Friday night. It’s our time to unwind together and get that quality relationship bonding stuff into our busy lives on a consistent basis. So, we took the idea and ran with it! We even have a “phone a friend” spot, so we can call a friend and do whatever they suggest for date night! In the Wild Card folder, there are about 10 other ideas, like bowling, go for a drive in the country (there’s a lot of that in Texas!), play pool & darts, watch the airplanes at the airport….stuff like that. It should be a lot of fun planning date night every week now! GRAB ONE HERE FOR ONLY $11.68!
What date night suggestion should we add to it!? Give us your favorite ideas!
Jeni is my bestie. Her birthday is coming up in less than a month (April 1st), so I’m always looking for fun Golden Girls items that she doesn’t already have. I mean, the woman made a Golden Girls Gift Guide, for Pete’s sake! She knows just about every GG product there IS! Now, I’m not a Golden Girls fan. But when your best friend is a die-hard, 20-year cult following, 100% crazy fan of something, it somehow gets into your life. Kind of like how my love of sharks has seeped into her life, since I’m her bestie. 🙂
Anyway, I found some pretty fun items, and I know that a lot of our friends here on Morning Coffee are also Golden Girls fans, so I figured you would all appreciate these, even if I can’t! 🙂 Here are some of the gems I spotted that aren’t already on her GG Gift Guide:
- Golden Girls Crew Socks
- Golden Girls Ankle Socks
- Golden Girls Granny Panties
- Golden Girls Coloring Book
- Golden Girls Collector’s Set
- Golden Girls “Quiet Watching Golden Girls” Jammie Set
- Golden Girls Windshield Shader
Do you have a bestie that’s obsessed with something you don’t like?
Are you a Golden Girls fan, too?
108 unique colored gel pens for $13.98. WOW!
Did you know Tasty makes cookbooks!? This Tasty Dessert cookbook is just $13.51 right now, making it the perfect gift to give yourself 🙂
It’s a Unicorn Color Changing Mug! And it’s under $13 – isn’t it adorable!?
Ok, guys. Which pill would you take if you had to take one? I (Jeni) am all about everything happening for a reason, so going back in time is NOT an option for me. Plus, the Butterfly Effect comes into play. I’m 41, so skipping ahead 9 years isn’t so bad. And I’d get 10 million bucks. It’s the blue pill for me!
Which pill would you take?
I (Sarah) have found my dream coffee mug. As a dinosaur lover, I am loving the fact that this mug changes from dinosaurs to dinosaur bones when you add liquid.
Do you have a dream coffee mug!?
My (Jeni) sister is watching The Umbrella Academy. Right now, I’m binging on something else, but I’m pretty excited to see it. I’m curious what other people think of it, though, because we really have very little in common when it comes to shows we watch and movies we enjoy. However, I saw the trailer and I’m pretty excited about it, so this might be one of those rare times we agree on something!
Have you watched? Do you recommend?
Do you love pickles? I mean, do you REALLY LOVE PICKLES? Because The SnoCo Pickles brand created snow cone-flavored pickles. Basically, flavored pickles, because snow cones don’t have a specific flavor other than sugar, really. The flavors include strawberry, tropical pineapple, sour green apple and more. They come in 12 snack pack bundles, or jars.
Would you try any of these?!
Well look at that! It’s an R2D2 Piggy Bank! It even whistles, beeps and bops (or whatever the sounds he makes are called!) when you insert coins! My (Jeni) boyfriend is a Star Wars NUT, plus he ALWAYS has a ton of change, so I’ll definitely be gifting this to him someday!
Do you still have a piggy bank?
Last year, I (Jeni) decided to make strawberry shortcake for dessert – but I wanted to do something different with it and add some flavor….so I created this Strawberry Cream Cheese Shortcake! The strawberry flavored cream cheese mixture is a great addition and really adds kick to plain strawberry shortcake! I’m making this again tonight and am pretty excited.
What desserts are you making this week?
Don’t forget to join us every Wednesday evening at 4pm EST for Happy Hour!
