It’s Tuesday, so we’re starting the day with ice cream & trolls… that’s normal, right?  It’s a fun bunch of random goodies we’re chatting about today, and we’re happy you’re here!

NEW HERE?  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 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.

Fill up your cup, prop up your feet, and let’s CHAT!


Good morning!  Cold Stone Creamery has been on my mind all night, and I (Sarah) woke up thinking about it, too.  Why?  Because They have a brand new ice cream that sounds amazing – Circus Animal Cookies Ice Cream.  But that’s not it.  That ice cream is actually featured in their new “It’s a Circus in Here!” creation.  

Here’s the scoop (pun intended):  Its Circus Animal Cookies Ice Cream with even more of the classic Mother’s Circus Animal Cookies in it, plus, marshmallows and rainbow sprinkles.  All of that in the waffle cone and you have their creation.  And I want it.  Like, I want it now.  For breakfast. That’s ok, right?  READ MORE

Do you ever eat sweets or dessert for breakfast?

EEEEEK!  You guys!  I (Jeni) am a vintage (’80s) toy collector – you know that if you’ve been joining us for a while.  Anyway, I also collect ’90s Russ Trolls – remember those!?  OMG my heart melts because they are so stinking CUTE!  Anyway, my little collection is coming along nicely.  I love seeing them on the shelves in my office!  

So Bryan (that’s the boyfriend) went to a vintage toy show on Sunday, and brought back a couple of treats for me! 🙂 These new little guys will join my collection, once I get another little shelving unit.  I mean, seriously.  A little Indian Troll, and a Troll with a cast and crutches!  They are too much and too fun!  I had to share with you guys 🙂

Do you collect anything?screen-shot-2017-01-06-at-8-07-17-am

How cute and unique is this stainless steel wine necklace!?  Plus, it’s only $9.99-$10.99 depending on the color heart you pick!  GREAT deal!

This 4-pack of scented soy candles is absolutely adorable and only $14.99!

How cute are these Cupcake Lip Balms?  They even smell like cupcakes and a 24 pack is $16.75. Great for stocking stuffers, gift baskets, party favors…


The Netherlands has some gorgeous places –  like Giethoorn.  it was founded in 1230 (wow!) and has no roads. NO ROADS!  That means no modern transportation, either.  Everything is done by foot or boat (they only have noiseless boats)- because they have canals instead of roads.  You’ll wanna READ MORE for sure! <<–the pictures are AMAZING.

Where is the coolest city you’ve ever visited?

Speaking of dessert for breakfast…. Krispy Kreme just joined forces with Butterfinger and created two new donuts: The Butterfinger Original Filled Doughnut: an Original Glazed doughnut filled with Peanut Butter Chocolate Kreme, dipped in Butterfinger icing, and topped with Butterfinger pieces and a chocolate drizzle.  And The Butterfinger Fudge Cake Doughnut: a rich chocolate cake doughnut dipped in chocolate icing and topped with Peanut Butter Chocolate Kreme and Butterfinger pieces. Mmmmm!

What’s your favorite type of donut?

Now  this is a weird little idea… but it’s cool!  It’s The CrunchCup – It’s a way  to eat cereal on the go with no bowl or spoon. There  are two cups in it – one for milk and one for the cereal. Each cup has its own hold so the cereal and milk don’t meet until they hit your mouth. Interesting!

What’s your favorite  on-the-go breakfast food?

It’s commminnnnnng!  The Child from The Mandalorian (or “Baby Yoda”) plushie from Build-a-Bear is on the way, you guys!  Go to the site to fill in your email address and be alerted when they are in stock!  Shouldn’t be long now… and MAN is he CUTE!

Have you watched The Mandalorian?

These 3D Animal Socks are hilariously awesome!  Plus, uhhh SUPER COMFY!!!!  There are 14 animal choices. Check them out and find your favorite! I (Jeni) am all about those pink sheep socks 🙂

Do you prefer socks or slippers?screen-shot-2017-01-06-at-8-07-32-am

These California Burger Wraps look SO GOOD and FRESH! And the addition of feta cheese really gives them an entirely new flavor!

What are your favorite toppings on burgers?


Don’t forget to join us every Wednesday for Happy Hour!



  1. Love that opening waffle dish of ice cream. I collect a lot of things so I hope I can resist those trolls. Socks with faces will be so friendly.

    I love the big waffle cone ice cream bowls! We just bought a box at the grocery and can’t wait to make some sundaes at home

  3. Those trolls gave me flashbacks on when I was a child. I collected them all. And those California burger wraps look delicious.

  4. I’m going to be trying those donuts on Friday! I plan on stopping by Krispy Kreme to see if they are any good. Sometimes their special donuts end up tasting funky, like the Reese’s one they did.

  5. I love that last one! My husband won $500 recently on a scratch off and he got $50 and I got $450! That’s my math!

  6. Aww, so cute! I love Russ Treasure Trolls so much! These are all so adorable! I have like 20 vintage ones myself. I see a few you have that I also have.

  7. I was OBSESSED with trolls as a kid. I had so many I couldn’t even count. I even ordered rings with trolls on them.

  8. I collected those trolls when I was younger and my mom kept them. So now my daughter loves them. I want those donuts and you two always find the best memes!

    I used to have a huge collection of trolls. They were my favorite things as a kid.

  10. I remember troll dolls. I didn’t realize there was such a variety. Those California Burger Wraps look so good. I need to make some.

  11. I can’t wait til the Baby Yoda plush is at Build-A-Bear. My kid thoroughly enjoyed the Mandolorian. Also, those plush socks are adorable. I love me some plush socks and the cuter the better.

    I just love those socks. So cute! Circus Animal Cookies Ice Cream looks really good too!

  13. I enjoyed reading your post. That Circus Animal Cookies Ice Cream screams my name. I can have it for breakfast, lunch and dinner! Also, what a great collection of 9Os Russ Trolls you have!

  14. Those are interesting donuts. I think they would be too sweet for me! It looks like it has a donut inside, but I see it is a butterfinger..

  15. Looking at that beautiful ice cream sundae I feel so jealous! We used to have a Cold Stone in a neighborhood shopping center, but they didn’t renew their lease. Now I’m craving ice cream in a big way!!!

  16. The California Burger Wraps look delicious. I love hamburgers, but don’t like eating too much bread.

    I have never gotten a Cold Stone Creamery as of yet. But that is something I would love to try this summer!

    That Butterfinger Krispy Kreme doughnut looks ridiculously sinful and delicious!
