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 Ladies, to 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!
If you’ve ever had bangs, and grown them out – you know my (Jeni) pain right now. This process always seems to take FOREVER, doesn’t it!? I just decided to grow out my bangs this weekend…which means I’m on day one of the adventure. UGH! I’m not even to the awkward phase of it yet, and I’m already annoyed. I’ve had bangs for about 20 years, and although I pull them back sometimes, it’s going to feel pretty weird to NOT have them, once they grow out!
With the Texas heat in the Summer, I’m excited to not have bangs. Normally, they end up soaking wet from sweat – which really isn’t all that attractive, unless you want to look like you just stepped out of a swimming pool. I’m feeling a little exposed now, since I’m so comfortable with my bangs. It’s like I walked outside, and forgot to put on pants or something. This naked forehead is pretty weird! It’s a journey, that’s for sure. But I definitely need your advice on how to transition the easiest!
What are your best tips for growing out bangs?
Ok, so if you’ve been following Morning Coffee for a while, you know that I (Jeni) am behind the curve on a lot of things. Take, for instance, the fact that I hadn’t seen Fraggle Rock until a few months ago. Or that I thought (all my life) that Pink Eye was literally a side effect of getting poop in your eye. See those stories HERE. So, when it comes to Netflix, it shouldn’t surprise anyone that I hadn’t seen Sons of Anarchy. I’m what…a couple of YEARS behind on that!?
It just didn’t seem like a show I would be into. Biker gangs and motorcycles? Meh. But when friends kept raving about this show, telling me I would LOVE it, they couldn’t ALL be wrong, right? Last month, I decided to give it a try. I would watch 3 episodes, and if I wasn’t totally enthralled, I would ditch it. The first night, I was up until 2am watching, and couldn’t stop. I had to FORCE myself to shut down the computer and go to bed, because this show is AMAZING! It’s definitely not for everyone, and totally “R” rated, but I was hooked from the first episode.
Now, I can proudly say I am up to date with this pop culture craze. Albeit a little late in the game, I definitely am happy I gave it a shot! The acting is crazy good, the plots are addicting, and, let’s be honest. Hot guys on motorcycles. Need I say more?
Have you seen Sons of Anarchy? What did you think?

I (Jeni) could seriously eat a BAG of these Mother’s English Tea cookies! In fact, I’m having a couple of them with my coffee right now. Cookies count as breakfast, right!? 😉 I don’t eat a lot of sweet stuff like cookies, but Mother’s cookies are simply the BEST EVER! These and the little pink and white with sprinkles animal cookies are my favorites.
What Mother’s Cookies do you love?
This Hops Holster 12 Can Ammo Pack is cracking me (Jeni) up! I know a lot of guys (and some girls, too) that would LOVE to have this for the Summer this year! What a funny Father’s Day gift idea for the beer drinker, too!
These are just too cool! It’s like Jetson’s stuff right here! These Virtual Keyboards will display the keyboard, and let you type on any surface…..amazing, right?
MORE cookies, Jeni? REALLY!? YES! A friend of mine is having a tough time right now, so I’m going to make her some of her favorite peanut butter cookies to cheer her up. Because baked goods always make problems disappear, right?! 😉 These 3-Ingredient Peanut Butter Cookies are actually my favorite to bake, because they are SO DANG GOOD, and QUICK to make!
This is too funny! It’s SNL’s take on American Ninja Warrior!
