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!  How amazing is this video!?!? These two brothers, Mason and Morgan, were only 12 and 15 when they decided to remake their favorite Pixar movie with real toys and people.  It took EIGHT YEARS…. yep.  8 years of incredible dedication and patience from these kids culminated into this incredible stop animation movie that is one hour and 39 minutes.  It’s truly awesome, and worth watching when you get time! Watch it HERE for later.

Are you a patient person?

What are you watching on Netflix?  For me (Jeni), I’ve just recently watched… correction… binged a really awesome show! Messiah. A friend with similar TV/movie taste recommended it, and I watched all 10 episodes of the first season in only 3 days. I don’t have a life.  😉  Anyway, you guys – it’s seriously awesome!

So, what’s it about?  This dude that people come to believe is the second coming of Jesus. He gets worldwide attention for performing some miracles, and people start coming together to praise this divine entity. Some think he’s a con artist, some believe he’s Jesus.  

I have to admit – I couldn’t help but stare and drool over Medhi Dehbi – the guy that plays the lead character.  He’s freaking gorgeous… which made me giggle to think, “Dang! Jesus is HOT!”  HAHAHA!

Watch the trailer HERE or check Netflix to start bingeing! <<<— I had to look up how to spell this! Apparently, you can spell it, “binging” or “bingeing” -who knew!? – and yes, I’m one of “those people” when it comes to spelling and grammar 🙂

What shows do you suggest on Netflix?


I (Jeni) constantly forget my coffee when I start getting busy.  This is a genius (and really inexpensive) way to keep your coffee (or tea or cocoa or soup or whatever) warm for longer!  The Mr. Coffee Mug Warmer is only  $10.99 – which is worth it to me, so I don’t waste coffee all day!

For those that have vivid dreams, then wake up saying, “WTF was that!?” grab this Dream Decoder Card Set!  It’s just $13.09 and would make an awesome gift!

These Bachelor Tees are hilarious and so cute!  $13.98 shipped to your door, sizes XS – XL, 12 designs, and TONS of color options!


I (Sarah) spotted these adorable unicorn cotton candy flavored lip balms at World Market, I picked up a few sets to use as party favors for my unicorn birthday party in May.  🙂  Yep – I totally hand out party favors because I’m the hostess with the mostess!! 🙂

Do you do anything special for your birthday?

Do your chicken like to play dress up and feel pretty?  That’s probably a sentence I (Jeni) will never type again in my life. HAHA! Chicken tutus are a real thing, though…seriously.  You can get them on Amazon and Etsy.  It might be ridiculous, but it sure is ADORABLE!

Do you dress up your pets?

Did you know that tomorrow (and this weekend), there will be a Snow Moon??  It’s called a “snow moon” because ancient people tracked changing seasons by the lunar month – and since there was so much snowfall in February…. Tomorrow (Feb. 8th) is the best time to see it.  Get more info about it HERE!

Do you like to star and moon gaze?


Sonic is one of my (Sarah) favorite treats, and that’s mostly because of their slush beverages! While my favorite flavor is grape, I was excited to find freezer pops in two of their most popular flavors Ocean Water and Cherry Limeade. Here’s hoping they release more flavors soon!  They also have new Sonic Slushed Lollipops that taste just like their famous slush beverages!

Do you have a favorite “every once in a while” treat?

Once again, the Cadbury Bunny Tryouts are happening this year!  Remember this commercial from 1994?  So cute! Interested in entering your pet!?  First, you’ll send in a picture of your pet with the ears on. Then, 20 semifinalists have to take a video of their pet, with bunny ears on for a full 3 minutes! Get all of the rules and guidelines HERE!

Could your pet sit with bunny ears on for 3 full minutes?


Shrimp Chowder is easier than you think to make!  There are some very rich ingredients in it, including 2 kinds of condensed soup, evaporated milk, creole seasoning, cream cheese and more!  That should keep you warm this winter!

What’s your favorite kind of soup?


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



  1. yes i love these so much that you have ha . i almost spit my coffee out seeing the ‘are your pants supposed to be off’ meme bc my kids ALWAYS run around w no pants on lol

  2. I’ll have to check out the Toy Story remake. It sounds awesome. Hard to believe it’s been 8 years in the making. I’ve seen the trailer for Messiah on Netflix, and I’d really like to see it.

  3. Thanks for all the info, I need to go through this list when I get more time! I want to see their Toy Story remake, I loved that movie! I want shrimp chowder right now, it looks delicious! And I need a coffee cup warmer, what a great gift for everyone I know!

  4. I love cotton candy anything, so I’d love the lip balm. I’ll check out Messiah! I’m agnostic but I’m always open to watching how people think things went back in the day.

  5. I am going to have to get that unicorn lip balm for my youngest, he likes all the weird stuff. He once tried mac n cheese lip balm – it was a fail .

  6. I watched the first episode of Messiah and I couldn’t get into it. I’m going to give it another shot this weekend.

  7. Our boys love that Toy Story 3 re-make on YouTube! It’s amazing how much dedication can help you reach your own success.

    • I am halfway through watching Messiah. So far it is not to bad. I loved watching You and Grace and Frankie is a great show as well. I need a coffee mug warmer! I always have to reheat my coffee.

    That Toy Story IRL is one of the coolest things I have ever seen! O am watching the whole thing tonight!

  9. We finished watching YOU on Netflix a while back. Now we’re watching Dolly Parton’s Heartstrings and The Witcher. Both are entertaining.

    The Mr. Coffee Mug Warmer is such a great idea! That would be a great gift for a coffee lover.

  11. The Toy Story 3 remake is pretty impressive! Although I wouldn’t dress my chickens in tutus (if I had chickens), I really enjoyed seeing those ones dressed up. I love the way a full moon lights up my yard, especially when we have fresh snow.

  12. I don’t tend to watch a ton of television. It’s a time-waster for me since I always seem to need to do other things. However, I am interested in watching the Messiah. I’ll have to check it out.

  13. I actually saw the notification of Messiah on my Netflix account and I skipped on watching it. Now, I’ll have to go back and add the series to my queue (thank you!).

  14. We have 6 chickens who need tutus. Probably half of the people I know have sent me these photos, but why hasn’t anyone sent any actual tutus?

    I am saving the recipe for Shrimp chowder. It really looks so deliciously creamy! This is THE soup I will make soon as I get everything ready.

  16. I just wrapped up watching The Circle on Netflix. It turned out being really good. I need to check out that dream decoder because I have some weird dreams.

    That is one sexy Jesus girl! LOL Thanks for sharing the shrimp chowder recipe!
