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, 9am 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!
I fell. No. I (Jeni) never “just fall.” I ate it – HARD. If you’ve been getting to know us with our weekday Morning Coffee chats, then you know that I am ridiculously clumsy. I don’t just trip. As I go down, I take at least one major appliance, a random toddler, any beverages within 10 feet of me, and anything made of glass, down with me. It’s always a mess. And this morning, it was a HOT mess. Here’s what happened: I didn’t put my vacuum away last night. Call me lazy. It’s heavy and the cord wasn’t wrapping up in a timely manner, so I said, “Meh,” and left it in the hallway. I left it at the end of the hallway, where the wood floor meets the carpeted living room. So, this morning, my bright-eyed, bushy-tailed self was singing “Smooth Criminal” to myself, and doing a few Michael Jackson moves, when my foot – or some appendage (I really don’t know – it all happened so quickly), caught on the cord. I went flying. When I say I “flew,” – I mean, I FLEW. I caught AIR. My next conscious moment was me, on my side, with my cheek dragging across the carpet. I ended up about 6 feet away from the vacuum, on the carpet, on my face. After I stopped laughing hysterically at myself, I got up and looked at the damage. Rug burn on my cheek. Rug burn….on my CHEEK. Who does that!!? Good thing I didn’t have my morning coffee yet, right? This is why my friends call me, “Grace.” I need to just live in a bubble….or one of those hamster balls. Think they have human-sized ones on Amazon? 🙂
Good morning. *ouch*
Are you clumsy? What’s your best “that just happened” story!?
Somedays we just have some of those days where everything from start to finish goes wrong. Yup.. you guessed it. That was my day yesterday. Every single step, every turn I, Clo, made something went wrong. From me losing a dozen posts I scheduled on my site, to me getting a pounding headache, to me messing up at work.. Every little thing. Why do we have days where everything seems to go wrong? It’s like pretty please just balance things out so that I have some bad, some good things happen so it doesn’t seem like everything is going to hell. So I’m laying awake, staring at the ceiling hoping and praying that today is a better day. I am just going to suck it up and be thankful for what I have.. what I do having going right. Atleast I’m alive right? Look on the bright side and move on. There are people out there with much bigger problems that what I have right now. Just think positive.. On the bright side: I have my Mexico trip coming up in just a few days and today is my last day at work before my vacation. So that’s good news!
Update a few minutes after finishing sharing my bad day with you guys:
Sometimes even a little fairy may help brighten your day. As mine did.. As I got home last night wanting to hit the bed and hope tomorrow was better I saw that I had a box at the door, it was from a mystery sender. A beautiful little Bath & Body Works gift set. It made my day so much better. <3
Do you have days where nothing goes right?
What do you do to help make you feel better?

Timi and Leslie has a wide selection of diaper bags for that stylish mama. Their bags are cute, fashionable, inexpensive. My favorite thing about the bags are that it comes with all these cool accessories and it clips right on the stroller for quick and easy packing. Plus, it has tons of space to put all of your mama needs. Check out more about this bag HERE!
Have you ever purchased a Timi and Leslie? What did you think?
See that bad boy? That, my friends, is my water cup. It’s more of a trough, I guess, because it holds 64oz! I bought it at Walgreens one day last Summer, and absolutely love it. I fill it probably 5 times a day, and use a straw to drink the water out of it. I don’t even have to THINK about drinking water all day, because I habitually pick up my water cup now! I may not be all that healthy….but I definitely get my gallon o’ water a day!
I originally made this posting when football season started but it’s still the perfect thing to make for those family parties, game days and just a night in. We love this dip, it’s super easy to make and is outright yummy!
