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!
Check those out! These tree… um… dresses? are so cool! They are just fun decoration – not really dresses! I (Jeni) saw them last year at an At Home store, and have started seeing them pop up again this year! I checked it out on the website, but they are only available for sale in-store at At Home stores. It does, however, let you know what stores near you have them in stock.
Each is 5 feet high and $149.99 (surprisingly low price from what I expected!). Needless to say, these are definitely for the less traditional home during the holidays! Pretty awesome and unique, but I’ll stick with my classic live 8 foot Douglas Fir 🙂
Are you more traditional or try new things every holiday season?
I (Sarah) have always loved mood rings. I wore them as a kid, and recently discovered that the trend hasn’t ended! I’m so excited because I recently found some designer mood rings – who knew that would ever be a thing? These mood rings (and necklaces) from Kendra Scott are so beautiful!!
Some places even still sell mood rings like the ones I grew up with! It’s such a silly concept, because it’s not like you need a ring to show you how you feel… or to show others. But still, they were so cool!
Did you wear or do you still wear mood rings?
Check out these Sandwich Cutters! OMG they are too cute! This set comes with 29 pieces plus some bonus items for only $21.99.
This 3D Unicorn Coffee Mug is on sale right now from $23.99 to only $15.95!!!
Can we just stop and take a moment to appreciate the styles of the 80s? I (Jeni) was watching Facts of Life (because I’m an 80s addict, I admit it – plus, it’s an amazing series). I took a quick shot of this, because… high heels and frilly socks. Blair is ROCKING the heels and socks with a long dress look in this scene. Ahhhhh…. 80s…. why did you have to leave!?
What are your favorite trends of the 80s?
My (Jeni) sister could certainly use this in her house with 3 little girls! It’s the Mimish Storage Pouf! It acts as a fun bean bag type chair, but you can also store toys, clothes, pillows, blankets or whatever else you want inside of it. Clever!
How do you organize your kids’ messes?
Ok. Here’s a fun quiz…but fair warning – it’s pretty hard! Well, it was pretty hard for me (Jeni), at least! Match the house to the cartoon…. I only got 50% right, and honestly, I guessed at a lot of them.
What did you score!? Was it easy for you?
HOW COOL! These Animal Crackers 3D Cookie Cutters are so much fun! It’s a 12 piece set (6 animal bodies and 6 animal leg choices) and seems like a great family fun baking time for a fall weekend, doesn’t it?
Why kind of cookies do you make with your kids?
So there’s this company called Firebox that started making the “Face Licker.” This is a personalized candy, made after the photo you submit. These lollipops are a little creepy to me (Jeni) but I can think of some pretty fun reasons to get them made! Check them out – plus all of the other AWESOME and really fun Firebox products HERE. I don’t really want to lick my own face, but it sure would be a funny gift idea, right!?
Would you have a huge lollipop made in your likeness?
Mmmm mmmmm! I’ll say that again…. MMMMMMM mmmm!!!! I (Jeni) am making these amazing Fried Apple Pies tonight for dessert. They are ridiculously yummy and with fresh apples, you will find yourself eating way too many. Put in any other fruit you want in them, but at least make them! You’re welcome.
What desserts do you like making?
Don’t forget to join us every Wednesday evening at 4pm EST for Happy Hour!
