Happy Thursday! We hope your week is awesome so far, but in case you need a little pick me up – here you go! Today, our goal is to make you SMILE!
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!
I, Sarah, have the best feel good story of the week for you today! This dad in Scotland made his daughter, Ava, into a princess! He transformed her wheelchair into Cinderella’s carriage for her. Even more, she got a blue Cinderella dress and had her hair styled to fit the princess bill! How absolutely precious is this!?
See more pictures and read more about their story HERE!
Can I (Jeni) just brag for a second? I’m so fortunate that I get to live in Texas for so many reasons. But one of them…. Decorator’s Warehouse! It’s not what you might think. It’s actually a Christmas store! I’ve talked about it before on Morning Coffee (read more HERE), but it’s a 60,000 square foot Christmas store that is an absolute DREAM!
Last Christmas, they added Dasher Pie Company…. a little coffee shop in the back that sells amazing coffees, hot chocolate, and the best pies ever! Seriously. They have a little sitting area with a fake fireplace and Hallmark Christmas movies playing the entire time, too. 🙂
I got the new Coconut Cream Pie and a coconut latte. Imagine that… surrounded by Christmas, eating pie and drinking a latte. It doesn’t get much better than that!
Are you a “Christmas everyday” or “Christmas only at Christmas” kind of person?
These Floatie Tea Infusers are so stinking cute! Plus, they are just $12.95 each, and come in Flamingo, Swan, and Unicorn.
Ok. Seriously… I (Sarah) just bought this for myself because it’s AMAZING! It’s a Personal Library Kit! I am a reader, and I loan out books a lot. This is so fun, retro and perfect for me! The kit includes 20 self-adhesive pockets, 20 checkout cards, a black inkpad, a date stamp, and one pencil 🙂 It’s only $15.07.
These Initial Knot Bracelets are just $6.99 and come in three different finishes… a great gift idea for Valentine’s (or Galentine’s!) Day!
How cute is this story!? This lady, Christina, wore her grandmother’s wedding gown from 1956 when she just got married last year! Apparently, she tried on other family member’s dresses, but this one “just felt right.” Isn’t that the sweetest?
How did you pick your wedding dress?
This Waffle Stick Maker is good for more than just sweet waffle slices dipped in syrup! With one of these, you can make sweet and savory treats like mac and cheese waffles, zucchini waffle grilled cheese, omelettes, mozzarella sticks and SO much more! Here’s a really cool site that gives you 30 unique ideas for using your waffle maker!
Besides classic waffles, do you use your maker in unique ways?
Ohhhhh my (Jeni) gosh! These two little Golden Retriever brothers are from Australia. Their names… Vader and Kylo. Yah – after Star Wars characters. SO COOL! But their Instagram will have you oohing and awwing like crazy once you see them! They are ADORABLY ADDICTING!
Do your pets get along with each other?
I (Sarah) don’t like a lot of spice in my food… so if you do this challenge, you’re CRAZY in my book! It’s the new Bean Boozled Jelly Belly Fiery Five Challenge! You start with the lowest “fire” level, and work your way up, and THEN play the game by spinning the wheel. CRAZY!!!! Get them HERE.
Do you like hot and spicy stuff? HOW HOT!?
I (Jeni) love sloths. They are so stinking adorable and fascinating! So, I was looking for a cute sloth coffee mug, and holy moly, I can’t decide! There are so many cute options! Sloths + coffee = a great day 🙂
What animal are you loving right now?
Talk about a quick and easy dish that’s totally customizable! Nacho Pie. It’s what’s for dinner, and it’s so flexible with the ingredients! You can use any type of bean, any type of meat or protein, your favorite types of cheeses and toppings… yep! EASY AND DELICIOUS!
What would you put in and on a Nacho Pie?
