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 8am CST (6am 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 us!
Now….refill that coffee and let’s get to chatting with our Morning Coffee!
That, my friends, is our gingerbread house we built this Christmas. I (Jeni) love building these, and never actually eat them. I just like having fun with the frosting and candy 🙂 It was my boyfriend, Bryan’s, first time ever building a gingerbread house. $9.99 and a few bags of candy (that mostly went in our mouths) later, he was off and running, building his house of candy! When it started sinking and collapsing, I realized it was over, but Bryan desperately attempted to rescue it.
A little more support here, a gumdrop in the corner here as a brace, some more of this gross frosting stuff there… it was pointless, and I knew it, but it was fun watching him, so I didn’t stop him. His first gingerbread house fell apart minutes after making it and he was devastated. I’ve actually never had a gingerbread house stand more than an hour after building it, so I wasn’t heartbroken. Instead of being bummed, we grabbed a Darth Vader figure and posed him for a picture. Now THIS gingerbread house suits us much better and reflects our personalities! For both of us, it was a success.:)
Next year, I’ve been asked to purchase a better quality kit. I have a feeling no matter what we do, Darth Vader will be attacking the house.
Do you make gingerbread houses during the holidays?
Do you have children? Chances are if you have, then you have probably heard of Minecraft. My (Michelle) children are obsessed with it! I have tried playing it with them, and it can be pretty fun, I’ll admit it. In this game, you pretty much start with nothing and have to get your own food, build a shelter and hide from mobs. I love them playing this game because it teaches them about building, making things work and more! They also love to watch their favorite Youtubers playing Minecraft!
Do you or your kids play Minecraft?
Get ALL 6 seasons of Parenthood on DVD for just $32 – regularly $119.99! Say WHAT? Yah. $32.
These funny socks are cracking us up this morning! At around 7 bucks each with 20 different styles (including french fries and donuts!), we’re loving this deal!
I (Jeni) just scored some YUMMY flavored Cake Boss Coffee Pods and I can’t WAIT for them to arrive! Flavors like Italian Rum Cake (did someone say RUM!?), Chocolate Cannoli and Hot Fudge Brownie…my mouth is WATERING!
Hello, Fleece-Lined Leggings that are slimming! As girls, we definitely can’t have enough, and for only $5.99 a pair, we believe it’s ok to stock up and grab some fun colors! These are like shoes – you can’t have too many pairs!

Wait….. finish your coffee and finish reading Morning Coffee and THEN go! They are having their 75% off sale right now – body washes for $3, hand soaps for $3…. it’s madness, madness I tell you! I had so much fun shopping and grabbing up items for gifts throughout the year and my (Jeni) own little stockpile of smelly goods! 🙂 You can find a store near you HERE (and if you prefer to shop online, you can do that, too).
What’s your favorite B&BW scent?
Hello, awesome! This Power Pressure Cooker XL thing is seriously awesome. It’s like every cool appliance you have and need and want in your kitchen, in ONE. Loving this right now!
What’s your favorite kitchen appliance?
I, Michelle, am addicted to this game!! I could seriously play it all day long. I have a few characters and just opened a box with Tinker Bell in it and I have to say, she is AWESOME! Emoji Blitz is such a fun game and helps pass time along!
Do you have a favorite mobile game?
We recently went and saw Moana, and let me tell you- it was soooooo good!! I (Michelle) loved it just as much as my kids did. So much that we had to go out and buy the soundtrack the next day. This is one CD you will want to buy and listen until it breaks!
Have you seen Moana?
With this crazy weather here in South Carolina, I (Michelle) can’t decide whether to make a soul warming soup or a summer salad. Tonight I am going somewhere in between and making Buffalo Chicken Wings. This is something the whole family can enjoy. Usually, I leave the sauce off it for my kids if they aren’t in a spicy mood.
What are you making for dinner tonight?
Look at this adorable face!!
He is rockin that stash!
