Today, we’re focused on making you have great stuff to think about all day! From a reality show to a dream vacation and breakfast for dinner – we have you covered.

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!


Love is Blind.  If you’ve been on Netflix or social media, you’ve most likely heard about this show.  I (Jeni) am a sucker for reality shows like this, so of course I watched (you guys know what a huge 90 Day Fiancé fan I have always been!).  Don’t worry – I won’t give away any spoilers!

OMG I LOVE THIS SHOW!!!!  I can’t wait for season 2, and really want to see the update on all of the couples airing on March 5th.  So, here’s the synopsis:

‘Nick and Vanessa Lachey host this social experiment where single men and women look for love and get engaged, all before meeting the person.’ … After that period of time, each man can propose to the woman he’d like to marry – despite having never met (yikes).”

Cool concept for a reality show, right? Although – it was kinda silly because every single one of the people was beautiful. EVERY person was model quality, so no one fell in love with some Quasimodo type person 😉  Anyway, I love it!

 Have you watched Love is Blind?  Who is your favorite couple?

I (Sarah) am not much of a traveler, but I definitely wouldn’t mind heading to Park City, Utah!  First, Utah is BEAUTIFUL. But second – you can stay in this amazing rental that’s a 4-story cabin tower.  Yah.  A 4-story cabin tower..  It sleeps four and has a walk-in shower and porch with views of the incredible mountains around it. It’s available on Glamping Hub for $207 per night – which is just about $50 per person!  It’s like a Rapunzel tower, isn’t it?

Where’s the coolest place you’ve ever stayed?


This Recycle Bin Coffee Mug is $12.99, and would make an awesome gift for eco-friendly people! I (Jeni) have never seen a mug like this before, but think it’s pretty neat!


If you love That 70s Show, check this out!  The complete series is only $27 right now!  That’s a seriously awesome price!

How great are these Essential Oil Diffuser Bracelets?  First, they are SUPER cute, and second, they help you keep essential oil close to you as you go throughout your day.  These are on sale right now for only $16.99 with more potential savings.


Ohhhhhh Yah!  This isn’t your average Chex Mix, friends!  It’s Bananas Foster Chex Mix – a unique recipe from!  The ingredients were surprising, but absolutely delicious!  It’s definitely different from my (Jeni) classic Chex Mix recipe I make every holiday season!!  GET RECIPE

Do you enjoy snack mixes?

I (Sarah) think this is the cutest unicorn mug on the planet and it’s just $12 and comes in a “be a unicorn” gift box.

Are you jumping in on the unicorn craze?

This dude on Instagram is sharing his journey of creating these “Volkspods” himself.  He literally hand makes a VW scooter that looks like this, using VW fenders and welding them together.  You can see his creations and follow his journey on Instagram!

Would you ride one of these?

Oh my goodness!  These are absolutely the most adorable little princess onesies ever!  They come in a 5-pack of Disney Princess patterns: Belle, Ariel, Cinderella, Snow White and Aurora. I (Jeni) wish I knew someone with babies that I could dress up now! ????

Do you have a favorite princess?

How adorable are these cat earrings?  They are so simple and petite, right?  They come in two colors and there’s even another style.  It’s a pretty nice, low-key way to show your love for cats… or you can wear them with your diehard cat lover stuff too, I (Sarah) guess!  HAHA!

I (Jeni) am from wine country on the Central Coast of California – so you KNOW I’m all about Wine Insiders! This is an awesome site for people who love wine (like me!) to sample award-winning wines starting at only $9.99 a bottle – SWEET!  Plus, they have a subscription club that hardcore wine enthusiasts (like me, again!) NEED in our lives!

Do you use CBD products? I (Sarah) just started looking in to it, and found Winged CBD.  They have these CBD Dark Chocolate Bites that sound PERFECT for me. They are specifically formulated for women, and have all of these cool benefits:

Raspberry Cheesecake Stuffed French Toast

  1. That rental house in Utah looks awesome! We’ve rented really cool apartments in France. We love looking for cool places to stay on Airbnb.

  2. Oh my goodness, thank you so much for including my Bananas Foster Chex Mix recipe. Also – I loved reading through this Morning Coffee and seeing all the neat things – dad challenge to kids was hilarious!

      EEEEK! You are SO welcome! Thank YOU for creating such an awesomely amazing recipe for me to share!!!! And thanks for joining us!! I hope you come back!

  3. I haven’t seen Love is Blind yet. How wild to get engaged before you even meet someone. And that unicorn mug is too cute.

  4. I keep hearing about Love Is Blind. I really need to watch it because now I’m curious. I’ll have to watch it over the weekend. Or during Spring Break.

  5. I am very out of the “Love is Blind” loop, but I’m totally ok with it. I get the impression I’ll be just fine without it 😉 haha (maybe an unpopular opinion)

  6. Now I feel like I have to head to Park City, Utah. What an amazing place it looks like to visit. Definitely going on my bucket list!

  7. oh my gosh i love love loved is blind ha- they are actually from where i used to live too in atlanta which is crazy!

    I need to get on the Love is Blind loop. Right now, I might be just a wee obsessed with 90 Day Fiance.

  9. Raspberry Cheesecake Stuffed French Toast ?! Yes, Please! Looking forward to trying this recipe.

  10. I just started watching Love is Blind, and so far I like it. I haven’t watched much of it yet though. My husband has already watched the whole season and he really liked it.

  11. I’m a huge Love is Blind fan! I’m seriously hoping they have a season 2 and that they have at least one spin off for Lauren and Cameron!

  12. I have heard of Love is Blind but I haven’t watched it yet. It looks like an interesting show. I’ll add it to my list.

  13. Love is Blind sounds like an interesting show. I must check this out! Hmm Yum! That Raspberry Cheesecake Stuffed French Toast is making me really hungry.

  14. A 4-story cabin tower could be an interesting location! But not for me! I am too afraid to sleep there! 🙂

  15. Stephanie Pass Reply

    I am so not into reality TV, but I totally got hooked on Love is Blind. I actually stayed up until 2 in the morning so I could watch the season finale as soon as it dropped, lol.

  16. Kristine Nicole Alessandra Reply

    My best friend collects coffee mugs – the quirkier, the better. I am sure she would love that Recycle Bin Coffee mug! The cabin tower looks like an interesting place to stay for a vacation. I can only imagine how beautiful the views would be from there.

  17. I have seen Love is Blind on my Netflix page and debated seeing it. It looks like a great concept I am interested in.

  18. I really love that oil diffuser bracelet! Would love to grab one! These are really great finds!

  19. I need the unicorn coffee mug, I like the idea of the recycle bin coffee mug, but not sure I would be drinking from it, lol. What a great bunch of ideas heere

  20. You never fail to crack me up! Haven’t seen Love Is Blind but I will now. Love the Insta guy and just started following him as well.

  21. Chelsea Sauve - Wandure Reply

    I love this concept of grabbing a coffee, and scrolling through leisurely! Thank you for that. And Love is Blind is such a crazy ride – love the initial concept, but not the speed of it is astonishing.

  22. Tiffany La Forge-Grau Reply

    Utah really is a beautiful state to visit. I would love one of those Volkpods!
