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

mason jar salad

Check out my awesome lunch from yesterday?! It consists of organic lettuce, croutons, papaya seed dressing, green grapes and some grilled chicken. It was so easy to make and tasted so delicious! I, Clo, have been trying really hard lately to get into shape. It hasn’t been easy and has been making life a lot more challenging. I already eat well.. now it’s just getting to stick with it and to go on daily exercises. I know I can do it, it’s just going to take time. Or as my fiance says “one step at a time.”

Any suggestions or tips on how to make things easier? Any motivation? 

I (Jeni) am a HUGE Dolly Parton fan.  I absolutely love her and her music!  She’s so fun loving and unique, plus she has that amazing voice.  When Miley Cyrus (her God-daugher, by the way) released this video, I didn’t have high expectations.  I mean, it’s a DOLLY PARTON song, has some killer voice transitions, and Miley….I’m not a fan.  However, I was SERIOUSLY impressed!  Check it out, and let me know what you think!  It’s a great little pick me up on a Monday morning!

in the news

doors painted cave

Are you a Doors fan? Want to express your love to the band through art? Well, you could have, but not anymore. In Corral Canyon Cave in Malibu Creek State Park fans enjoyed spraying out their love for frontman Jim Morrison. However, officials have closed the cave indefinitely for cleanup. “The now-closed cave will be blasted with walnut shells, which will clean off the graffiti without damaging the rock walls. The cleanup will cost $40,000, and there’s no word on when hikers can head back to it,” the article states. I love Jim Morrison and the band Doors, and if I had the chance I’d probably go and mark the wall too. It’s sad that they’re closing it, but I can totally understand where the state is coming from. Read the article HERE.

JENI’S THOUGHTS?   The thing that sticks out the most to me, is the walnuts.  Blasting the rock with walnut shells will maintain the integrity of the wall, yet get off the paint!?  That’s crazy cool to me!  As for The Doors or Jim Morrison – I can live with or without either, honestly.  It’s neat that the fans had a place to express their adoration, though.

  1. I need to try that Nutella cake! I know my hubby would love it for sure, but being this easy it is dangerous! We can make it fast and that means we could do it often! I have a HUGE sweet tooth! LOL

  2. I need some of that Nutella Mug Cake! Yum! And those skirts are super cute, I’d love a longer maxi-style for the summer/beach!

    I’d love to try that nutella mug cake! My kids love nutella so I’m sure they’d like this.

  4. Great post, so many cool things. I really like that rendition Miley did of Dolly’s song Jolene, I never knew they were related!

  5. Roxanne Morrison Reply

    Am going to try the Nutella Mug cake for my weekend treat. Like you, I’ve been working on getting in shape… I’ve been hearing about the mason jar salads, yours might have finally tempted me to do it!

  6. Amy Desrosiers Reply

    I have always wondered about salads in jars. Do you shake it to get the dressing all around? Is that the perk?

    • It’s just a easy way to store your salad before plating it. So I work a fulltime job so I prep my salad early. I start by adding dressing to the bottom of the jar, then add chicken or other things that wont soak. then add croutons, and lettuce.

    I have been wanting to try a mason jar salad. It is a great way to bring your lunch with you.

  8. Nutella mug cakes look so delicious and easy to make. I will have to try making this tomorrow. My kids are going to love it.

  9. So, did you get the idea of smoothies from a book or something? I would never have thought about adding in those croutons. Thanks for the idea. I wish you luck on your endeavour.

  10. what a great post. but i have to say i got a little side tracked with mileys version of jolene. woo that girl got some pipes. i love this song and the way she sings it. lol

  11. I’m still leery of watching the video of MIley, but I’ll take your word for it! I need that Nutella cake in my life!
