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

On our minds this morningstar mapLast night my friend told me a bit about looking up your ‘birth map’. I, Clo, have always been one who loved the stars, signs, astrology, the works, so I knew I had to give it a shot. And oh my how accurate this thing is! It got me down to the T. I couldn’t have described myself more perfectly. It’s fascinating how our stars truly share so much about us. See my full chart HERE.

Welcome to Mars Documentary

Last night, I (Jeni), was enthralled with a little science!  As you probably know (because I talk about it all the time on Morning Coffee), I’m a science junky.  I was feeling the need to get my science on, so I searched for a documentary to watch.  I found this Welcome to Mars one, and was SO happy I did!  I couldn’t stop watching!  I had beer in the fridge, bubbles for a bubble bath, a handsome boyfriend to spend time with, and a lightening storm outside I could have watched.  But no.  Jeni picks a science documentary about Mars.  If that doesn’t prove my obsession, I don’t know what would!! 😉

It was fascinating, as the crew followed the dudes at NASA and JPL, as they successfully landed Spirit and Opportunity – 2 rovers that would inspect, collect and send data back to Earth from the surface of Mars.  This was the endeavor that showed us there was once water on Mars!

Why is this even important?  Why are we spending so much money on space exploration and rover research?  Because, as Earth dies, we need to find other resources – outside of our own planet.  These resources may help us keep Earth going….or keep humans alive by transplanting us.  It’s a big deal.

If you’re interested in watching, check it out HERE!  Plus, there are TONS of documentaries on that site, and they are all FREE!  Get your knowledge on!

Pizza Hut Bacon Stuffed Crust Pizza

Pizza Hut has their Bacon Stuffed Crust Pizza again.  It’s magical and ridiculous, and I (Jeni) LOVE IT!  I get the Supreme Meat Lovers with this crust, and don’t mind feeling the fat attaching to my squishy belly, because it’s SO good!

egyptair missing plane

MISSING PLANE.. Yup that happened again. So this time EgyptAir has lost a flight from Paris to Cairo with 66 on board. I don’t really get how a plane that big can just go missing. This seems to be happening much more frequently though. This isn’t the first time this year a big plane has gone missing. It’s heartbreaking for the family. I’m not sure what I would do. I hope everything turns out okay — but based on the last few plane disappearances, things don’t looked that good. Read the full story HERE.

Jeni’s thoughts on this story:

I got an alert last night on my phone about this, and was immediately intrigued.  With all of our technology we have now – HOW does this happen?  And this isn’t even the first plane to “disappear,” either!  I’ll totally be following this story today, and praying for the passengers and families.

  1. I am totally intrigued in seeing what Mars looks like! It is pretty cool to be able to see what is on that planet!

  2. Jenna Wood Reply

    Oh man, bacon stuffed pizza? As if pizza wasn ‘t dangerous enough. Thank goodness it’s too early in the morning to call and order!

  3. It’s very sad about the plane. The world is a scary place these days. I hope whatever happened the people on board didn’t suffer

  4. Those herb pots are so cute. I’m all about growing my own herbs this season, so I’m on the lookout for cute planters to grow my herbs! These are adorable.

  5. No way, bacon stuffed pizza? How did I not know. We have pizza night on Fridays so I just may have to order it

  6. It would be so awesome and interesting to see the documentary on Mars. I’ve always wondered what it looks like. As for that grilling table, I’m adding it to my wish list. I need it. Yup, I do.

  7. That documentary does sound really interesting. I didn’t know what exactly the goals were for exploring Mars. I’m loving the pictures Clo.

  8. Love your “Memories last forever” sign. It’s super cute! As for what are my favorite documentaries…my entire family loves watching documentaries about sea life and animals. My daughter gets a kick out of watching the bears and lions and trying to copy their roars.

    The apple chicken sounds amazing! Your recipes NEVER disappoint!

  10. I really like the idea of the herb pots. I have been using a lot of herbs lately so might as well just grow my own!

  11. Ann Bacciaglia Reply

    Baked Apple Chicken Sausage & Veggies looks so delicious and easy to make. We are planning a BBQ this weekend. We will be grilling some steak and corn on the cob.

  12. Racquel Bregg Reply

    Thanks for another great read! Your photos are great- I’m inspired.

  13. Astrology is always fun to look into. It’s interesting to see how close they can come sometimes.

  14. Ryan Sales Escat Reply

    If I am not mistaken, America is now conducting a travel to Mars with CHOSEN people to be in that space travel. Hmm Curious…
    And also, I will use that LIE thing ! hahaha

  15. I really want a set of herb pots so I can test out me green thumb. Baked Apple Chicken Sausage & veggies looks so delicious and satisfying.

  16. Another missing plane?! How? Seriously, how?! Considering Neil Armstrong went to SPACE with less technology than we now have in a standard smart phone, losing a plane should be impossible.

  17. My dad can do predictions from the birth map! we use birth maps a lot in our custom, but these days the belief is not as high as the previous generations. I like some of your other features here as well 🙂

  18. That Chicken dish looks amazing! I need to make this one day this week.

  19. I really want to see that Mars documentary too! And i love Pizza. It’s my go to food when i need comfort food!
