Morning Coffee with Jeni & Clo

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, around 7am CST (5am PST, 8am EST) 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. Not sure who we are?  Head over to Meet The Ladiesto meet Jeni, and Reviews by Clo to meet Chloe (you can call her “Clo”!)

Did you miss us yesterday, or any other day this week?  Catch up and keep the conversation going by stopping over HERE!

Now….refill that coffee and let’s get to chatting with Morning Coffee!

On our minds this morning

Reader Question: What is your superhero name?

Last week, reader Michelle left a comment, asking us what our superhero name would be, and what our super powers would be.  What a fun question!  Thanks so much, Michelle – you just scored a $10 Amazon gift card or Paypal deposit!  Leave us a question in the comments, and if we answer it during Morning Coffee, you’ll get a $10 gift card, too!

My superhero name is GINGER SNAP!

Hmmmmm…..well, I (Jeni) am a feisty, fiery, quirky, silly redhead.  A good friend always calls me “Ginger Snap,” so I think that should be my superhero name!  Sounds more like a Power Puff Girl or Spice Girl name, but let’s go with it!  Now, for my super power.  Batman doesn’t have any super powers, and he’s my favorite.  Iron Man is only a superhero because of an outfit he puts on.  So I think Ginger Snap could be just as awesome, without having any super powers.  That’s my super power – awesomeness!  Ginger Snap will make you laugh, help you feel good about yourself every day, and gives amazing hugs!  She bleeds glitter, cries frosting tears and fights bullies with love. Man, my cheesy super hero is sounding more like a cartoon character from the 80’s, and less of a badass that fights crime and zooms around the city.  😉

super hero

Well.. there’s a first for everything right! Haha. I, Clo, don’t think I’v ever been asked this question but here goes nothing. If I was a superhero hero I would probably be “The Masked Artist.” Why? Well.. ever since I was a child I’ve loved the arts, everything and anything about it. What would my power be? Let’s just say I’d help the world one step at a time through art. I’d be able to give children and adults the power to be creative, and bring out their true talent. I feel that way the world can really bring people to their fullest potential. Imagine that!

What superhero name and power would you pick for yourself!?

What's cooking in our kitchens

Creamy Chicken Shepherd's Pie Recipe

Tonight, I (Jeni) am making my Creamy Chicken Shepherd’s Pie.  I can’t WAIT for dinner now, and it’s only 6am!! 🙂  It’s so delicious and different, because of the ingredients – I use lemon, Ro-tel, black beans and other stuff you don’t find in a normal shepherd’s pie recipe.  Mmmmm-mm!

What do you have cooking in your kitchen?

in the news

Fort McMurray Fires

No doubt that if you have social media, you’ve seen the horrible fire in Fort McMurray, Alberta.  It’s been devastating.  Over 400,000 acres torched, 900,000 people evacuated, 1,600+ homes and buildings burned down and this fire that’s left devastation in an area 1/2 the size of Rhode Island, is 0% contained.  This makes me (Jeni) SO sad.  I lived in Canada for a year, and have lots of Canadian friends.  My heart goes out to the country and the people affected by this fire.  It reminds me of devastation from Hurricane Catrina, and how the country bonded together to help out.  That’s inspiring, but it’s sad that this is what it takes. 🙁  Read more about this crazy fire HERE.

CLO’S THOUGHTS ON THIS ARTICLE: I’ve been keeping a close eye on this fire. It’s pretty heartbreaking. I can’t even imagine how many of these residents feel right now. I wouldn’t even know where to go or what to do. I know fire fighters and officials are doing all they can do but I wish  there was something more.

  1. I love the Star Wars chop sticks, I must have them! I’m sure my grandkids are going to love them too!

  2. I am really excited about the shoes, probably more than I should be. I need a new pair of running shoes and I just cannot afford the prices. This is perfect thank you for sharing it.

  3. I have friends that live not far from Fort McMurray so I have been seeing her photos and videos. It’s a tragedy of such huge proportions. We’ve been seeing and smelling the smoke here in South Dakota.

  4. I have a friend who needs those lightsaber chopsticks in his life. He’s a total nerd, and he’s all about takeout.

  5. I have a question for you. If you you could go on dream vacation anywhere with out money being an issue, where would it be and what would you do?!

  6. Ginger Snap is such a cute name for a super hero and I’m sure that it suited you well. I love those light sabers, I have a friend who is so into Star Wars that he would so love those.

    If I could be a superhero, I would want to be like Black Widow. She kicks butt.

  8. LOVE those tennis shoes! SUCH a great deal. Love the purple color, too!

  9. I have the most boring Otterbox case right now. It’s protective, but I want one of those fun designs you just showed.

  10. Amy Desrosiers Reply

    Now that is a great deal on that grill! We love to grill in the summer but wear down our grills super quick!

  11. Ann Bacciaglia Reply

    I love to start my day with a big cup of coffee. I will have to look at getting the Mr. Coffee Steam Espresso and Cappuccino Maker.

  12. Lisa Bristol Reply

    I would love the Ocean Waves Light Projector. It looks like it would be fun for the kids to.

  13. I love reading your daily eclectic roundups. That little Tuesday Kitty photo is my fave today!
