It’s Thursday! How about some cute stuff… and some weird stuff? That’s a good mix to get you through the day, isn’t it?

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!


Ohhhhhh my gosh, you guys.  I (Jeni) am not a dog person.  I’m not a cat person, either. But I can’t stop wanting every one of my friends with a dog to have one of these ADORABLE little dog RV campers!!!  They are so stinking cute!  And really – I guess ANY pet that can fit in it could love it!

They are made by a guy at Big Creek Merchantile, and he has three designs for them – ranging from small too large.  Plus, they aren’t even that expensive – under $1,000 for a big one. But come on – how cute are these!?


Do you spoil your dog?

It seems like every holiday now is celebrated with a tree.  I’m a classic Christmas kinda girl… but I don’t begrudge others from decorating all year.  For me – the tree is just for Christmas.  But this new trend of having a tree for every holiday is definitely fun to check out!

Right now – it’s the St. Patrick’s Day tree that’s trending! I’m assuming an Easter tree will be next, since we just saw Valentine’s Day trees earlier this month.  You can check out people’s really creative trees and their fun ideas by searching the hashtag #stpatricksdaytree

Do you decorate for holidays like St. Patrick’s Day?


This amazing 8-in-1 Kitchen Tool Set is just $8.99 and includes all of these in one bottle:  funnel, juicer lemon squeezer, spice grater, egg separator, measuring cup, and can opener.  NEAT!

Love mug meals and desserts?  This Make in a Mug Cookbook has lots of great recipes in it and it’s just $5.99!  I (Jeni) just bought this for my cousin, who will be heading off to college on her own next year.

OMG!  The Babysitter’s Club books 1-6 in this retro pack is only $25.49 right now!  I (Jeni) am getting this for my niece that’s about the same age I was when I read them!


Now this is really inspiring.  Sharon Osborne has been coloring her hair that dark purplish red color every week for nearly 20 years.  What we didn’t know – she has 100% white hair under that, and it’s BEAUTIFUL! She decided to go more natural, and that’s pretty awesome.  READ MORE

Do you color your hair?

I (Jeni) LOVE to bake.  If you follow my blog, you know that!  So, naturally, I am always looking for fun baking supplies.  That’s how I found Sweetapolita – they create absolutely adorable sprinkles and even have really fun surprise bags (I LOVE mine!). It’s so much fun!!

Do you like to bake?

Where have these Right Angle Scissors been all my (Sarah)  life?!!? I need these so badly for so many different things. I mean, just think about it, and then remember these the next time you use scissors!

What simple task would you like to see a gadget made for?

YESSSS!  I (Jeni) LOVE The Blacklist! I’ve been watching it since season 1, and look forward to every new season. James Spader is just amazing.  Love him!  Anyway, it was just picked up for season 8!  And that’s awesome, because it’s an early renewal – season 7 starts March 20th!  READ MORE

Are you a Spader fan or The Blacklist fan, too?

Okay I (Sarah) have weird food cravings all the time, despite not being pregnant. My current craving is Dill Pickle flavored peanuts, they are delicious. It’s like salt and vinegar dunked in pickle juice…so tasty! If Dill Pickles aren’t your thing, they also have Pizza, Banana Pudding, Strawberry Shortcake, and a number of other flavors.
What flavor would you try?


This Crock Pot Chicken Noodle Soup is just what cold and flu season ordered!  Plus, I (Sarah) can make it in the crock pot – which I absolutely love! Nothing better than the kitchen smelling like a delicious meal all day, right?  

What’s your favorite soup to make at home?


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



  1. Another great post of laughs and giggles!! I can SO relate to trying to put underwear on without falling down. LOL I’m in the middle of letting my gray hair grow out. One more cut and I will be all ME!!

  2. I personally put my tree away after Christmas. It would be weird for me to have it out all year long.

    Those are cute dog RV campers! I only have cats and I doubt they’d use it.

    I love The Blacklist as well! Such a great show.

  3. I gave my daughter that Babysitters Club tin set for Christmas. I loved the books when I was her age and she enjoyed them thoroughly as well!

  4. I love that everyone is celebrating holidays with trees now! A St. Patty’s tree sounds like so much fun and can SO be easily decorated to keep with the holiday’s lucky theme.

  5. Those little RVs are so cute! What a fun idea for dogs.

    I think my kids would love those mug recipes. Great way to make a quick dessert!

  6. I actually bought my daughters all of the Babysitters Club books years ago! They were my favorite (and Sweet Valley High).

    that dog RV is like the cutest thing ever. my dog is to big for it, but if i had a smaller dog, i’d so get one.

  8. Right Angle Scissors are a great invention! I have to have them in my house!

  9. Wow! Those little dog RV campers are really awesome! Perfect for our fur babies. That Crock Pot Chicken Noodle Soup looks really scrumptious and satisfying!

    Such a wonderful post to read today, I would love to have that kitchen tool set, the cook book and also wanted to make that delicious crock pot chicken noodle soup, perfect for my cold weather.

  11. When I lived in Guatemala City we only had a shower, so when my step kids were staying with us I filled a big rubbermade for them to bathe in. It was perfect.

    Crock pot chicken noodle sounds like a good idea. I would love to make that too; seriously looks amazing.

  13. I wouldn’t mind having a seasonal tree, that way I can just exchange the ornaments and have the tree decorating the house all year long

  14. The campers are really cute! My mom’s hair turned a beautiful shade of white and I keep hoping that mine will follow suit. Unfortunately, now it is just dark blonde/brown with gray strands.

    First off I am loving that pet camper, and that man trying to get that piece of wood beam into his vehicle LOL wow!! But I really like that dog trying to get a free meal from that grill LOLL.

  16. I LOVE to bake and those Sweetapolita sprinkles are Fantastic!!!
