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!



If you’re a Hallmark Christmas movie fanatic, this one is for YOU!  I (Jeni) have honestly tried to watch the movies, and they just aren’t my thing.  I WISH I could get into them, though!  So, there’s actually a Hallmark Channel Countdown to Christmas convention.  Yep – a 3-day convention!

It’s the 10th anniversary, so they are inviting fans to (the first ever) Christmas Con in Edison, New Jersey from November 8th-10th. There will be local vendors selling holiday gifts and decor, an ugly holiday sweater contest, a baking contest called Gingerbread Wars, a concert and even Hallmark Channel stars appearing!

Would you go!?

I (Sarah) am a huge Build-a-Bear fan.  I’m also a big Disney fan, which means that the new Frozen 2 movie Build-a-Bears have me getting the chills!  They are SO CUTE! There’s Anna, Elsa, Kristoff, Olaf and Sven, plus accessories, costumes and gift sets!

The Elsa-inspired bear travel gift set is $66 – but it includes and an Elsa-inspired bear, travel costume, wig and boots. And seriously, it’s so cute!  If your kids love Frozen, you know you’ll be wanting to grab these up for the kiddos for Christmas! 🙂

Are your kids excited about Frozen 2?

Check those out!  These fun Fishnet Socks have adorable bows on the backs!  My (Jeni) 14-year-old niece just about freaked out when I got them for her – she’s got that Avril Lavigne vibe to her, so these are perfect! Plus, they are only around $15 and come in a 5-pack!

What’s your basic style?

Love spicy food?  These new Doritos should be right up your alley!! These are a limited time flavor, which means they won’t be around for long – so grab them while you can!  They should be available nationwide at most grocery stores and big chains now.

What’s your favorite spicy food?

Are you a cat lover? These Interlocking Cat Necklaces are so adorable, and come in three different styles. They are 2 separate cat necklaces that interlock when put together. For cat lover besties, this is the perfect BFF gift!

Are you more of a cat person, or dog person?

This mom gets the MOM OF THE YEAR AWARD!  Her two rambunctious little girls, Emma (4) and Hannelore (3) were bouncing off the walls.  So, she got clever. She told them that they had to lay down and stay still in order to “charge” their glow-in-the-dark pajamas. And they DID!  BRILLIANT!

What sneaky sneaks do you do with your kiddos?

This is too cool!  Hot Wheels fans can score a Hot Wheels Chrome Decal with the Hot Wheels logo! Just imagine – your car can be a life-size version of a Hot Wheels car 🙂  It really does look pretty cool, doesn’t it?

What’s your dream car?


I (Jeni) LOVE German food. One of my favorites is German potato salad. This recipe lets you make it in your slow cooker and requires ingredients you most likely already have on hand.  This looks sooooooo yummy!

What’s your favorite food from another country?


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




    • Sriracha is definitely not my favorite flavor, but I’m a sucker for new Doritos flavors so I can’t wait to try them!

    • Fishnet socks are always cool, you can totally wear them year round, not just at Halloween!

  1. I’ve been looking for those Doritos chips! No luck so far. I know I’d love them since I’m all about spicy foods.

    I need to get a Halloween inflatable.

    • I saw them at 7-11, CVS, and 76 stations here in Southern California. You might check those places first.

  2. Oh my gosh that Parents is genius level with her kids! I am totally going to do that with my kid. I’m going to get the glow-in-the-dark pajamas and do this. I am dying laughing over here.

    • Such a great idea right? Anything to get kids to settle down before bedtime.

    • I am loving the new Build A Bear designs, now all they need is a sound chip that sings Let It Go. They do have an Olaf phrases sound chip.

  3. Those Frozen 2 Build a Bears are so adorable! I’d love to have the collection! I also really love the Halloween inflatables. I’ve always wanted one.

    • I am dying to get my hands on the whole Frozen 2 line from Build A Bear, so many cute choices!

  4. My niece will flip over those fishnet socks! I probably couldn’t pull them off, but a teen girl most definitely could! My oldest daughter would love those BFF cat interlocking necklaces. She just adopted a cat and is all about everything feline these days.

    • The BFF cat necklaces are super cute, they are perfect for any cat lover.

    • I am so in agreement with you there! I need the whole collection!

    • Build A Bear’s new Frozen line would make awesome gifts for Christmas, maybe a trip to the mall to build them and see Santa at the same time? That would be Frozen perfection!

  5. I would love to go to the Hallmark Channel Countdown to Christmas Con. I love their movies. Those Frozen 2 Build-a-Bears are so cute! I want one for myself.

    • I am a huge Hallmark movie fan myself, especially their Christmas movies! I cannot believe they have their own convention now. It’s perfectly acceptable to buy yourself a Frozen Build A Bear plush.

  6. These Fishnet Socks are so weird! But I am sure that my teenager niece will be glad to try them!

  7. OMG those two kids with the glow in the dark pajamas is hilarious! I have to check out the unicorn jewelry for my Bella! Love the Frozen 2 Build A Bears!

    • The pajamas had me cracking up so hard. I mean seriously any parenting hack to get your child to settle down to go to sleep is amazing.

  8. Christmas movies are my thing and I’m actually looking forward to watching Christmas movies on Hallmark Channel later this month. Now if only NJ is just a few minutea drive away. I’d surely check the Christmas Con out.

  9. I can’t wait to see Frozen 2. I’m sure my 8 year old isn’t quite as thrilled as I am but he was a Frozen fan and would watch that movie on a daily basis. Now I can’t get it to watch it with me. 🙁

    The interlocking cat necklace is super adorable too. My sister would love it.

  10. Doritos never disappoints with their flavors. I like the idea of a Sriacha one. Worth looking into the other new ones as well.

  11. I’m so excited for Frozen II! I loved all the trailers they’ve released so far and I can’t wait to watch it when it comes out next month. Also, I love the unicorn accessories and the cat necklaces too! So adorable!

  12. Frozen II is one of the movies I’ve been looking forward to this year. I can still remember when the first one came out, everyone was crazy about it. Those socks(?) are adorable and I’m sure the younger ones are loving it! I think that doritos is a must try, I love spicy food!

  13. I’ll have to look for those chips! That cat necklace is cute! I imagine a lot of people will be super excited to build their own Frozen bears.

  14. That German potato salad looks delicious!

    I am interested to see how Frozen 2 is. I will definitely be going with my daughter, it looks like a cute movie.

  17. Okay. That momma who told the kids to lay still to charge their glow in the dark pajamas was BRILLIANT! I am going to now look for glow in the dark pajamas
