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!

What feel good stories have you heard this week?

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? screen-shot-2017-01-06-at-8-07-32-am

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?


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



  1. I love your posts. The princess story made me smile and thank god for daddy’s around the world. I actually follow the dogs on Instagram. I’m sending the flamingo tea infuser to a crazy flamingo friend of mine.

  2. You always find the most amazing stories and products… I wish I would have went with a more vintage dress. I went with the norm dress.

  3. I’m in Texas too! I’ll have to see if I have a Decorator’s Warehouse near me. I want to check it out.

    I think I need that waffle stick maker.

  4. The wheelchair carriage is so impressive! What an awesome experience for her! Cinderella was a fave of mine growing up.

  5. Oh that Dad who made his daughters chair into a carriage is amazing, what a lovely moment for her – I bet she will never forget that.

  6. this is a great idea- that gorgeous carriage is such a work of art and im sure that his daughter was thrilled

  7. What an adorable story about that dad who turned his daughter into a princess! I love hearing beautiful stories like that. I also want that initial knot bracelet, I don’t wear jewelry often but I adore rings and bracelets! I collect them and barely ever wear them, though!

  8. You had me at Dog Brothers! They are adorable. My dogs don’t cuddle unless they are very cold, but my sister’s dogs did. The Cinderella carriage and dress are just perfect!

  9. That dad in Scotland is such an amazing father for making her daughter feel very special. And I am really loving those Floatie Tea Infusers !

  10. I absolutely love the Cinderella wheelchair! That dad is awesome! Also, I’m loving the sloth coffee mugs! I just made some really cute Printable Sloth Valentines Day Cards for my blog since sloths are such an in thing right now.

  11. Now I know what I will make for our movie night dinner for today! Nacho Pie! Sounds so perfect and easy!

  12. I absolutely adore those initial knot bracelets! How gorgeous! These would be a perfect V-Day gift… hint hint to hubby!

  13. That Cinderella wheelchair is fantastic. That seems like something they would have done for Gypsy Rose, before the scandal of course. It seems like a great idea for any little princess who has a disability.

  14. Anything about vintage on a wedding theme is just beautiful, from gowns to motiffs. I enjoyed reading random things like this one.

    My oldest daughter would totally freak out over those sloth mugs. She loves sloths and she collects coffee mugs, so this would be perfect.

    Oh goodness. that nacho pie! It looks so good I want to have it right now. Got to make that tomorrow!

  17. I love this: He transformed her wheelchair into Cinderella’s carriage for her
