It’s finally Friday! Woohoo! Let’s sit down, have a fun little chat, and get our mood even brighter for the start of the weekend! There’s a lot of NEW stuff to tell you about….
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!
Calling all Harry Potter fans! Guess WHAT!? There are four new books!!! Yep – four new e-books by Pottermore Publishing have recently been released! They are each centered around lessons that Harry, Ron, and Hermione get at Hogwarts.
- Harry Potter: A Journey Through Charms and Defence Against the Dark Arts
- Harry Potter: A Journey Through Potions and Herbology
- Harry Potter: A Journey Through Divination and Astronomy
- Harry Potter: A Journey Through Care of Magical Creatures
From the Press Release: “It seems part of human nature to want to believe in the unbelievable: from the bestiaries and cabinets of curiosities of the medieval period onwards. We think that truth and myth are easily distinguished today, but magical creatures and the stories around them continue to fascinate us—and they are as central to the Harry Potter stories as Harry, Hermione and Ron.”
In 1988, I (Sarah) got a game that would remain one of my favorites of all time – Mall Madness! 🙂 They re-released it several times over the years, and even had a couple of special edition ones, but the original was the best. And now…. it’s coming BACK!
And updated version of the game is coming back to stores this fall, and I am super excited. It’s promised to be pretty much identical, with some visual updates, and moving piece characters with more personality. It’ll still have 22 stores, fake ATM cards, and the awesome electronic guide that talks to you!
What was your favorite board game growing up?
Can you believe that I (Jeni) have never seen any of the Toy Story movies?! I need to catch up, and think with this deal, I have no excuses not to! Score the Toy Story complete collection (so far!) on DVD for just $10, and on Blu-Ray for only $26! That’s a freaking AWESOME deal!
Score 10 Yankee Candle assorted votives for just $18 right now! Considering this would normally cost $29, that’s a great deal. You’ll receive a random selection of scents.
Golden Girls fans (like me!) can score this super fun Golden Girls magnet set for only $7!! It comes with tons of small magnets, including each of the ladies, and 2 backgrounds 🙂
Wanna know a secret I (Jeni) just learned about? The blog, The Salty Pot says that the best fried chicken – is brined and marinated in pickle juice for 6-12 hours before you even season it! AND it doesn’t taste like pickle when you cook it. Apparently you get super moist, flavorful chicken. Who knew!? READ MORE
Do you have any great cooking secrets?
There’s a new Oreo Easter Egg Cookie Decorating Kit – and it’s ADORABLE! It comes with two giant Easter egg cookies, icing, candy eggs, and OREO Mini Cookies. Just like decorating Christmas cookies – but for Easter! How fun!
What Easter traditions do you have?
I (Sarah) really don’t even know what to say about this awesome Parrot Mug! Ok, I DO know what to say – it’s AWESOME! I love how unique and colorful it is! LOVING IT!
Do you have a fun coffee or tea mug?
NSYNC. That band makes some of your hearts flitter- doesn’t it!? 😉 Guess what!? Lance Bass is making a movie about NSYNC! But it’s not a documentary about the band – it’ll be a comedy about superfans that travel the country to see the final tour… and it’s based on a true story! No word on film start or release.
Are you team Backstreet Boys or team NSYNC?
Unicorn bathrobes. Because kids aren’t the only ones that love mystical creatures that fart glitter and poop rainbows, right!? 😉 These are too cute, totally affordable, and even come in several styles!
Are you more of a mermaid or unicorn fan?
Jalapeño Popper Bagels– it’s what’s for breakfast! Or Brunch! Or Dinner! Or… a snack! 🙂 Even better, you most likely already have the ingredients you need at home, if you’re already a jalapeño and breakfast fan. Mmmmmm!
What’s your favorite brunch item?
