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!


BOO!  Did I (Jeni) scare you?  😉

I used to religiously watch Ghost Hunters.  Remember that show? It’s still on, and I watch it when I catch it on.  I absolutely love it.  It’s just a fun show!  So, here’s some fun news for those of you like me – there’s a NEW show!  It’s called Ghost Nation and it’s on the Travel Channel – plus, 3 of the original guys are in it: Steve Gonsalves (hottie!!), Dave Tango, and Jason Hawes.  YAY!  

This time, the show shows everything, including their travels to assist local investigators on cold cases.  Plus, they are getting back to the basics of what the original show was meant to do – help people.  I haven’t been able to catch an episode, BUT, I’m super excited!

Will you watch Ghost Nation?

I (Sarah) absolutely love these Juniper Books sets. They are amazing! They decorate the book covers with different designs and make all the classic books. So I love Shakespeare and the set is really incredible. Chronicles of Narnia is beautiful as well.

I would buy all of their books if I was rich!  They are really expensive. You can even curate your own set and they have a $150 and under group, as well. Some of their large sets have the coolest covers imaginable. The kids books are amazing, too!

What series of books would you create with a this style?


This Boooo-Opoly Board Game is $25 and looks like a blast!  Plus, check out those little piece movers (what the heck are those called??) – they are too cute!  I (Sarah) call the bat! 🙂

These Cable Knit Boot Socks are SO CUTE! Plus, how comfy do they look!?  Each is $13.99 + $1.99 shipping, and they come in 5 colors.  Imagine wearing these while you’re curled up on the couch, watching Hallmark Christmas movies! 🙂

This 200-pack of Gel Pens (100 pens + 100 refills) is only $21.98!  I (Jeni) own this exact pack and absolutely love it!  The color choices are awesome and include: 28 Glitter, 18 Metallic, 16 Neon, 15 Pastel, 14 Neon-Glitter, 6 Swirl, 3 Classic!



Looks like  just regular shoes, right?  Well, they kind of are… but so much more.  These are the Atoms Shoes. This is the first shoe (it’s unisex)  that comes in 1/4 sizes!  Plus, you can order 2 different sizes.  That makes SO much sense! 

Do you have a big size difference in your feet?

OMG These Unicorn Hand Warmers are PERFECT for anyone that is always complaining about being cold at the office!  Plus, you guys – they are freaking adorable unicorns!  🙂 There are three different heat settings with a long USB cord and wrist straps to keep them on!

Are you always cold at work?
If you’re a pickle fan, there’s a new item on the market for you! Slim Jim Dill Pickle flavor 🙂  Yep, it’s jerky (Slim Jim is considered a jerky, right?) and it’s Vlasic pickle flavor.  Sounds pretty fun, and a little different, too.  I (Sarah) wouldn’t mind having a bite of one… 
What snacks are you eating now?

CARE BEARS! YESSSSS! These are the CUTEST little Care Bears you’ll ever seen, too.  They are World’s Smallest! These definitely make awesome stocking stuffers and fun toys for the kiddos (or the adults like me – Sarah!).

Which was or is your favorite Care Bear?

Another adorable product coming at you! Tea drinkers- this is for you! These animal tea mugs have built-in infusers, and omg they are so cute! There’s a cat with a fish infuser, or a monkey with a peach infuser. I (Jeni) just scored the monkey for my tea-loving niece!

Are you a tea or coffee person?


I (Jeni) am a great cook (if I do say so myself), and I love trying to make new things. The ONE thing I have tried and cannot perfect is country fried steak or chicken fried steak. My boyfriend LOVES it and mine are good…but not like we get in restaurants.  Tonight, his buddy is coming over for dinner, so I’ll be trying to make this for them – Bob Evan’s Copycat Country Fried Steak!

Do you have any tips for making country fried steak?


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




  1. I recorded Ghost Nation! I do still watch Ghost Hunters as well. I personally prefer Ghost Adventures though. I like how they set up their show better.

    I’d try the Slim Jim Dill Pickle flavor! I liked the Dill Pickle chips.

  2. YES!! Toilet paper math is the hardest math of all. I am in love with those jel pens. I use too many of them. Or can you use too many of them? hhhhhmmmmmmm

  3. The blog has so many great things for Halloween including the Ghost Hunter show. I love those Atoms shoes they look so comfortable and stylish.

  4. Those pens would be perfect for a friend of mine’s daughter. She loves to draw and she loves to use different colors. This might be just the gift we need for her for Christmas.

  5. You always find the most interesting things like those adorable tea mugs. I’m a tea drinker and could use a mug with a built in diffuser. (Yes, I agree. TP math is the hardest!)

  6. I love gel pens. I’m pretty sure that I bought this set or one very similar to it. Adult coloring is one of my favorite ways to relax and destress. I use the pens when I color and of course, go through ink like crazy. 🙂

    I had no idea hand warmers existed like that! I have cold hand issues and totally need to check these out for myself!!!

  8. Where have boot socks been all my life?! My feet are always cold and these are a super stylish solution. I want a pair in every color!

  9. Reading this today is going to end up costing me a whole lotta money! 😉 I LOVE the Juniper Book sets and want to purchase a bunch of sets! Plus, I feel like I need the boot socks, the Unicorn handwarmers, and the Care Bears! Thanks for sharing such fun stuff!

  10. I love those cable knit boot socks. They look so warm, comfy, and cozy. I am a sucker for a good pair of socks.

  11. I love the book’s gift sets and the unicorn hand warmers. I do not think I need them, but I want them lol

  12. Ghost Nation sounds like it’s going to be an awesome show. I remember watching Ghost Hunters. My daughter would love those cable knit boot socks. I know what’s going in her stocking.

  13. I want those The Chronicle of Narnia books! Just love them so much!

  14. Those boxed book sets by Juniper are incredibly! Straight away, my eyes went straight on the Narnia sets and the Harry Potter sets. What great gift ideas!

  15. I just work my kiddos up laughing over the toilet paper math. I can never seem to figure out the best buy when in the store. I know they do that on purpose. LOL

  16. I just woke my kiddos up laughing over the toilet paper math. I can never seem to figure out the best buy when in the store. I know they do that on purpose. LOL

  17. I drink a lot of tea. I’d love to have the cat mug with the fish infuser.
