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. And don’t forget to hop over to Michelle’s blog, Sweet Southern Lovin’ to see what she’s posting over there, too! Not sure who we are? Head over to Meet The Ladies, where we introduce ourselves!
Now….refill that coffee and let’s get to chatting!
Hurricane Joaquin. Yikes. I (Michelle) live in South Carolina, and we are definitely feeling the wrath of this storm! It has rained around 3 inches so far and guess what my crazy family is about to go do?!?!?! We are about to go out to eat at Outback! My puppy, Bella, is really enjoying all this cool weather and the rain. She tried licking it when we went out there for her last bathroom break. Are you in the path of Hurricane Joaquin? Let us know where you are, and the conditions around you in the comments! I love a good storm – they can be really fun and relaxing, but this one sure doesn’t fit that bill!
Onto less threatening topics! How was your weekend? I (Jeni) had a fun date! We went frugal and had dinner at Red Robin (yum, burgers!) and then played around in Toys R Us for about an hour. It was so much fun to be a kid again and be silly with all of the fun toys! I also noted prices (because I’m always looking for deals) so I can better compare toy sales for your holiday shopping. I can’t believe how much Legos cost now! Were they this expensive when we were kids!? 🙂 We also went wandering around our city of Fort Worth, and fell in love with it all over again. The stockyards are one of my favorite places to go in my city. What wonderful things does your city have to offer? Where is your favorite spot to visit?

I (Michelle) am making one of my most favorite dishes for dinner tonight. I have brought out the slow cooker to make Chicken Tater Tot Casserole.
How about something just as easy for dessert? These Cheesecake Trifles are AMAZING and SO easy to prepare! In fact, they only have 3 ingredients in them!
What are you planning for dinner tonight? We’d love to hear what you’re making in the comments!
As we prepare our Holiday Gift Guides for you (check out last year’s Guide on The Binder Ladies and Sweet Southern Lovin!), we’re reminded of some of our favorite things from 2014.
Aurorae Yoga Resistance Bands
I (Jeni) use these every day. They are SO easy to use, and give you a serious arm workout! I’m trying to lose my “bat wings” – because I would love to wave at someone, and when I stop, I don’t want the fat under my arms to continue to wave! 🙂 LOVE these bands!
CoffeeMate Espresso Chocolate Creamer- GOODNESS IN A BOTTLE! This is our new favorite creamer (and in our cups right now)! It’s smooth, chocolatey and has a great kick of espresso. It’s even in a Star Wars themed bottle with Darth Vader on it! Have you tried this creamer!? What’s your favorite flavor?
What’s on your mind today? Leave us a comment, and let’s keep the discussion going!
