Now….refill that coffee and let’s get to chatting with our Morning Coffee!
Check out that sunset! I (Jeni) am from San Luis Obispo, California, originally. Although I’ve lived in Texas for 11 years and call Texas my home, I still love my hometown. Pismo Beach is a quick 15 minute drive down Pacific Coast Highway from San Luis, and when I took my boyfriend, Bryan, home for the holidays – he fell in love with Pismo Beach. If we could have bought a house out there, he would never have come home to Texas. We sat on a bench and watched the sunset, and it was absolutely amazing. Even though I’d seen that same sun set over that same beach a thousand times growing up, this time, it felt much more peaceful and serene. I guess that’s part of growing up – blah! 😉
Tell us about the most beautiful sunset you’ve seen!
Raise your hand if you are addicted to Netflix *raises hand*. I (Michelle) love watching Netflix. There are so many new movies that can be seen, tons of tv series to watch, and if you have a child there is so much for them to watch! However, for me, I am a sucker for rewatching TV series I have watched a ton of times before. What I like to do, is put all of my favorite series on a piece of paper, put them in a bowl and pull one out and that is the lucky series I get to watch.
Over the summer I picked The Walking Dead and started back at season 1, episode 1 and I was amazed at things that I had missed the first time around. Once I finished that series which ended with the newest that came out on AMC, I pulled another out of the hat. I am currently on season 2, episode 5 of Supernatural. I have picked up on so much information that I missed before, and honestly, who wouldn’t love to watch these boys in action a second time around 😉 On my list I have to watch American Horror Story, Orange is the new Black, Strange Things, Fuller House, and Sons of Anarchy.
What is your favorite show or movie to watch on Netflix?

One of my (Jeni) absolute favorite items I reviewed for our Holiday Gift Guide this year was from this amazing company, Lat & Lo. I was able to give my best one of the most meaningful and special gifts this Christmas because of Lat & Lo. They create jewelry with latitude and longitude coordinates on it, so it’s unique and special to you. It could be the location of your first kiss, the city you love most, the lat & lo of a cemetery where someone special is buried….anywhere! The pieces are seriously beautiful and the personal, unique touch that they offer is truly amazing. I can’t say enough about them! Check out my review HERE. And, by the way, I wasn’t paid or compensated to tell you this stuff – I just honestly LOVE IT!

On my (Jeni) holiday vacation this year, we stopped into a lot of gift shops. This shop had a cute, wooden sign that cracked me up! “We don’t skinny dip, we chunky dunk.” Am I the only one that’s never heard that and thinks it’s hilarious!? 🙂
Another great find in a gift shop on my (Jeni) trip…. these Monchhichis!! I mean, really – I think the last time I saw these cute monkey things was in the 80’s, so I was totally excited and shocked to see them in a random store in California! I never had one as a child, but most of my friends sure did!
Did you have a Monchhichi?
I (Michelle) was a tiny little thing when this movie had just come out! It was one of my favorites, and still is! One Halloween, I went as Belle and I wore the costume for a good year after. Now that I have children, this is one of their favorite movies too. When I first heard they were doing a live version of this movie, I couldn’t start freaking out. After seeing countless trailers and seeing the newest movie poster for it, I just can’t wait! It opens in theaters on 3/17/17.
Will you go see the new Beauty and the Beast?
I (Michelle) love to read books. I am more into reading romance novels, but if it’s a good book, you can count me in! While I love a good paperback book and being able to smell the pages and turn a corner down, having a Kindle Fire works out better for me. I love being able to cuddle under the blanket, turn the lights off and get lost in a whirlwind of a love story. It is so easy to stick the Fire in my purse and literally take it everywhere with me.
Do you have a Kindle Fire?
I (Jeni) make this Shiner Bock Fried Chicken all the time! And, as requested by the boyfriend, I’m making it again tonight! It’s amazing- seriously. If you love fried chicken, you must try this recipe! Check it out HERE.
