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!


’tis the season for CHRISTMAS MOVIES!!  WOOHOO!  I (Jeni) am all about it 🙂  Good news for those of you like me – starting December 1st, you can watch Christmas movies and TVs all day on Freeform! It’s the “25 Days of Christmas” schedule.

Check out the complete schedule.

Now sure how to watch on Freeform? This article helps guide you and gives you options!

What are your favorite Christmas movies?

You guys know how big of a Disney fan I (Sarah) am.  And I know a LOT of you are, too!  This will make anyone that loves Disney pretty excited – Colourpop released another Disney-inspired makeup collection, and it’s really neat. It’s called The Midnight Masquerade line and has 18 products.

The products range from $8 to $191 (yikes!) but you can score them as full kits or as individual products (more my style, for sure). Check it out HERE!

Do you have a go-to makeup you love?


“The Neverending Storrrrrrryyyyyyyyyyyyy!!!”  That’s running through my (Jeni) head right now! I you know the movie, The Neverending Story, you know the theme song! 🙂 Check out the amazing deals on this classic right now!  Blu-Ray is only $9.99, plus there are multi-format and DVD deals, too.  Every kid should see this!


Uhhhh… who needs pie, when you can have pie-flavored donuts from Krispy Kreme? check out their latest invention that will be available through Thanksgiving this year:

  • Dutch Apple Pie Doughnut: Filled with apple pie filling, dipped in caramel icing, topped in streusel topping, and hand-decorated with an icing lattice
  • Chocolate Kreme Pie Doughnut: Filled with chocolate Kreme, dipped in chocolate icing, topped with a dollop of Kreme, and finished with mini chocolate chips
  • Cherry Pie Doughnut: Filled with cherry filling, topped with pie-crust crumbles, and hand-decorated with an icing lattice

Which sounds the yummiest to you?

This has to be the coolest cheeseboard EVER! It comes with knifes, and swivels with multi-levels.  Not only will it look really fancy and nice for guests – it could be used for so much more than just cheese!

Do you get fancy for parties you host?

A post shared by Piglet, deaf blind pink puppy (@pinkpigletpuppy) on

Feel good story of the day!  This is Piglet – he’s a pastel-colored Dachshund-chihuahua mix that’s blind and deaf.  Through his Instagram, Piglet is inspiring those with differences to have a positive attitude and embrace themselves.  Cool, right?  And the pictures are so cute!

What differences do you embrace?

I (Jeni) saw this when I was looking for a fun, new duvet cover for my 5 year old niece’s bed.  It’s a Doodle World Map Duvet, and it’s freaking amazing!  This is a duvet that kids can color on, then sleep under. It comes with pens and is machine washable. It has tons of fun facts, neat animals and can help kids learn about geography – all in one!

Do your kids color on anything other than paper and coloring books?

How freaking cute and unique is this Mini bean Bag Advent Calendar!? It comes with 12 days of awesome little mini bean bag animal plushies with stretchy loops so oy ou can put them on your keychain or hang from the tree!  EEEEEK!  So much cuteness!  This would be great for someone that has a little tree in their office!

Do you have advent calendars?


Tell us this Broccoli Apple Salad doesn’t look amazing, and we’ll tell you you’re crazy!  The Recipe Attic has this great recipe that is super simple to make and sounds pretty dang fresh and delicious.

What are your favorite salads?


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







  1. I’ll have to pick up some Midnight Masquerade sets for my daughter. She loves Disney and make up.

    I also love Christmas movies and I tried those doughnut pies. My fave was the apple. The others were just eh.

  2. I KNOW! I’ve been waiting since January 1st for the 25 Days of Christmas! I’ve been biding my time with Hallmark Christmas movies until then.

  3. I always look forward to the Christmas shows this time of year so i have to check out Freeform. Donuts can never get any better than the ones with pie in them.

  4. That puppy is so cute. I think the only thing I look at online is puppies and food anymore. I love those types of things but can not seem to find an interest in anything else posted on Instagram.

  5. I was just saying how I’d like to watch The Neverending Story with my kids. Oh, and that doodle duvet is super cool!!

  6. I also thought she was a muppet! I love PinkPigletPuppy. I’m not quite ready for Christmas movies, but I’ll probably watch Elf this year and possibly a few others.

  7. I love watching Christmas movies too! I should begin to make the list! 🙂

  8. I love Christmas movies. My favorite growing up was Rudolph. When my kids were younger I bought it on DVD and I still own it. I remember watching The Neverending Story when I was a kid. Now I have the theme song stuck in my head.

  9. That cheese platter is serially the best idea and now i want to head on over to Krispi Cream to grab some Donuts.

  10. That cheeseboard looks amazing. I love that it comes with its own knives. I also love the ColorPop Disney makeup collections!

  11. Yay for Christmas movies and delicious donuts! We watch Elf every year for Christmas. The rest we rotate through, but Elf has to happen every year.

  12. I just saw an ad on KK’s Fb page with their holiday treats and I will be getting some nest week. I love their donuts!

    I need The Midnight Masquerade line makeup and that cheese board for my upcoming party

  14. I have been watching Christmas movies on Lifetime the past couple weeks. I am starting to see repeats, So I’m so excited to see Freeform is going to be starting theirs soon!

  15. You got me at cheese platter. 🙂 Thanks for sharing your thoughts and infos. Was lovely reading your post.
