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!


Remember a little while ago, how excited we both were about the new Netflix original series, Green Eggs & Ham? WELL – now I (Jeni) am even more excited!  Because TODAY IS THE DAY!  It starts streaming November 8th (that’s today) and I’m over the moon excited to watch!  Watch the trailer above, then check out on Netflix!  Weeeeeeeeee!

What is your favorite Dr. Seuss book?

WOW.  So, I (Sarah) was scrolling Facebook and this caught my eye.  How could it not!?  Apparently, a painter took this really, really, really old typewriter from 1937, and replaced each of the letters and keys on it with color pads.  Then, he stuck colored labels on the corresponding keys. And now, he has a “Chromatic Typewriter” that he can create cool art on… how neat is that!?  Check out the post HERE

What is your favorite type of art?


Lip Smacker season! Not only are these great to keep in your purse to keep your lips safe from cold weather, they taste amazing AND make awesome gifts and stocking stuffers!  The Coffee & Tea Lip Smacker set is $9.95, and the Dippin’ Dots Lip Smacker pack is $7.88! mmmmmm!

This fun Slime Making Kit has over 50 pieces to make fun crafts with SLIME!  It’s on sale right now for just $13.99!

OMG how cute are these?  Score these adorable Mouse Earrings for only $5.97  + free shipping, in one of three color choices!


Amazon released a Holiday Gift Guide with 4,000 ideas of gifts – and I (Sarah) can’t stop looking at it!  I keep finding amazing gift ideas for my friends, and have added sev real to my own wishlist 🙂
What’s on your wishlist? 
Did you know that there’s an Annual Toilet Paper Wedding Dress Contest?  Charm Weddings and Quilted Northern hold the competition that features designers from all over that create a custom wedding dress made out of toilet paper! The winner got $10,000.  SWEET!  Check out all of the designs HERE.
What fun competitions have you heard about?

Heated Dumpling Slippers.  I (Sarah) love everything about these!  They are called Smoko Heated Slippers, and they are only $35 – which is awesome because they are so squishy and fluffy and cute, but you can also plug them into a USB port to heat them up!!

How do you stay warm in the winter?

Ok, seriously.  This is too cute!!!!  This little sweetheart is Erin Borges.  And her third-grade picture day outfit was a red, floor-length gown with white gloves and silver heels. Hehe!  That 8-year-old has some STYLE!! She actually ignored what her mom had laid out for her to wear and put this on instead. 🙂 Read more HERE.

Did your kids wear something special for picture day?

This Christmas Tree Stand immediately adjusts to the width of the trunk – which makes it SO EASY and FAST to put your tree up this year! It can support a tree up to 10-feet tall, which is pretty impressive.  No more laying on pine needles under the tree and screwing in those screws while trying to make it straight!  GENIUS!

Do you have live or fake trees during the holidays?


Gingerbread is one of my (Jeni) FAVORITE flavors of the holiday season, and the fall season.  When baking season kicks off – I’m ALL about making fun gingerbread and gingersnap treats!  These Gingersnap Coconut Cookies offer a really cool balance of flavors with creamy coconut.  You have to try them to believe how amazing they are!  Grab the recipe HERE!


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







  1. The slime kit would be perfect for me to get for my nephews this holiday season. I know they would love it.

  2. I love Lip Smacker season! Have been a fan of this product since my younger years and simply have to have all the new seasonal scents/flavors!

  3. The mouse earrings are so cute. I wish that I could wear them but I can only wear gold and those are expensive. My ears have probably closed up completely now.

    Those wedding dresses are beautiful and hard to believe it is all toilet paper.

    Lots of fun stuff today! The wedding dress contest is so funny! I also think the typewriter is really pretty!

    Ok, so I had no idea that there was a show called Green Eggs and Ham coming out. I’m gettin’ a little overly excited over here. Feels like my childhood all over again!

  6. That typewriter art is so cool! My husband would love gingersnap coconut cookies.

  7. I used to live those Lip Smacker packs so much! And a toilet paper wedding dress? Oh boy!

    That typewriter just blew my mind! If that is true, then whoever “invented” that is pure genius! I love those Mickey Mouse stud earrings too. So pretty! And I had to laugh at that street sign. It made me remember the one near my sister’s house that read, “3th Avenue” Hahaha.

  9. That Christmas Tree Stand is exactly what i need for me. It’s so useful!

    I was fortunate enough to use a typewriter during my high school days. Who would knew how technology evolves 360 degrees.

  11. I have to have those heated slippers! I have RA and my feet often ache so bad I can’t walk and these would be perfect!

  12. I have legit turned on the wrong burner more times than I am proud of. I love that meme. The Lorax was my favorite Dr. Suess book growing up. Though I am excited to see Green Eggs and Ham!

  13. Those mouse earrings are adorable, and I know so many Disney fans – I might have to get them all a pair for Christmas! They would love them!

  14. I loved the Amazon gift guide that was mailed out! My daughter (age 5) loved looking through it – and pointing out everything she wants.

  15. Lots of fun stuff! I saw a slime kit for sale at Costco. The ginger snap cookies look so good.

    Just reading this made me smile and LOL. Memories 2 years ago I bought for my great niece Green Eggs and Ham and it became her favorite book. Daddy got to point that he was hiding the book from her he was so tired of reading it.

    I always have loved Lip Smacker products. They were always in my stocking every Christmas!

  18. My feet are often cold when I’m sitting at the computer. I like that you can plug into the computer to make the Heated Dumpling Slippers warm.

    The toilet paper wedding dress is surely something I had never heard of before but looks fun and really creative!
