It’s Monday! Normally, we’d say, “blah,” but we’re walking into today with a WOOHOO attitude! Hopefully the topics we picked for today will get you there, too!
NEW HERE? 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 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.
Fill up your cup, prop up your feet, and let’s CHAT!
Happy Monday, my beautiful friends! So I (Jeni) just found this, and HAD to share with you guys. It’s this dude, Matteo Stucchi in Italy that creates really yummy desserts – but adds humor to them! He basically plays with his food, and makes scenes. And omg they are so much fun! You can see more of his work on his Instagram. He has new photos every Tuesday and Friday, so there’s always more to see 🙂
What fun Instagram accounts are you following now?
These Rainbow Trees are AMAZING! I (Sarah) discovered Eucalyptus deglupta trees. They are found in the Philippines, Indonesia, Papua New Guinea, and Hawaii. So, apparently, the rainbow effect comes as the bark peels off through each season (like how a snack sheds its skin). That fresh bark underneath is what you see, and as every layer of the bark matures, it turns cool shades of blue, purple, orange, and red! It seriously looks like someone painted them. How cool is that? Nature ROCKS!
What’s something magical you’ve seen recently?
This is one of those things that you always WANT to have, but never want to have to use. It’s a amazing little emergency alarm – this generations “rape whistle,” that you can carry on your keychain. I (Jeni) just bought one for a young friend off to her first year of college. They are only about $16 – and you definitely want to check out this video on it – it’s pretty incredible!
This amazing Catalonia Wearable Blanket has places for your legs and arms…. keeping you SUPER cozy! These are ridiculously awesome, aren’t they? They come in lots of great colors, plus you can get them in a sherpa lining, too! Even better- they are under $25!
Score some ADORABLE Muk Luks Boots for just $19.99 + FREE shipping!!! These come in sizes 6-11, in six different color styles!
This is so stinkin’ cute. This guy, Andrew Taylor, created a stick library for dogs. Yah. Basically, it’s a place in the park so that all of the local dogs could borrow a good stick to play with. He actually trims trees at his house, then sands them down to make them good for the dogs. How CUTE! Read more.
Do you take your dog to a dog park?
I (Sarah) love notebooks and am always filling them up part way and then abandoning them. I have half unfinished notebooks. That’s why I’m loving Rocketbook, it’s a notebook you write in and then microwave to wipe it clean and use it again!
Are you a note-taker?
Some things are just beyond understanding. Like, this amazing sculpture. I (Jeni) am NOT an art lover… but this has me so fascinated! Artist Francesco Queirolo made The Release from Deception in the 18th century. Uh…. they didn’t have the crazy tools we have today back then – and LOOK AT THE DETAIL! The netting itself is blowing me away! Read more
Are you an art fan?
FUN! This Bonsai tree-growing kit looks like a super easy way to start growing your own tree, but also a neat way to relax. I (Sarah) have heard that caring for a Bonsai can be very calming and help with anxiety. I need that, for sure!
What do you do to relax?
BBQ Chicken Sliders!! How FUN! When the weather is cold and snowy outside, it can feel like a summer BBQ inside 🙂
What’s your favorite cold weather meal?
