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 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!

On our minds this morning

El Nino 2016

I (Jeni) remember El Nino from the 1990’s, when it was the “biggest storm” we would likely ever see.  That was NOTHING compared to this storm now.  My hometown is San Luis Obispo, California – half way between San Fransisco and Los Angeles, on the coast.  It’s getting POUNDED right now by El Nino.  They’ve had 15-25 foot waves on the beaches, and I called my grampa this morning to find out how it’s going there.  The high surf warnings are coming every hour, and they’ve gotten less rain today, but are expecting more of the storm to hit off and on for the next 10 days.  My gramma and grampa are LOVING it!  They are too cute!  See more about the storm in my hometown HERE!


Sometimes, I, Clo, love reviewing. I’ll admit there are some items where I am not very fond of but help the company out by giving it a review. However, this company BloomsyBox was definitely something I was looking forward to reviewing. BloomsyBox is a subscription box that sends you monthly batches of flowers! Each month you’ll have a bunch of fresh, farm picked flowers delivered right to your door. How fun right! I got my box yesterday and it has some beautiful Lilys! Little did the company know, that Tulips and Lilys are my favorite types of flowers! I love how it isn’t bloomed yet, so that I have time to enjoy it. This would be a great gift to give to your loved one this Valentine’s Day! 🙂

Would you be happy if gifted BloomsyBox?

I, Clo, love this place! The Marriott is just a few minutes from where we live and sits right on Kalapaki Beach. Winston and I, love taking evening walks on the beach, stopping at Dukes, a restaurant on the beach, then taking a scroll back to our car passing through the Marriott. Usually it’s pretty late and the pool is closed leaving it quiet, peaceful and just us. I love how the water lights up and looks so temping to just take a dip!
