Morning Coffee with Jeni & Clo

This is a piece from my Morning Coffee section with Jeni from The Binder Ladies! This weekday morning chat is posted on The Binder Ladies around 7am CST (5am PST, 9am EST).

So grab a cup of coffee (or tea), sit back, and chill out for a bit with us this morning! We’ll 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!

Now….refill that coffee and let’s get to chatting!

On our minds this morning


My, Clo, great-grandma makes 94 today. I can’t believe how old that is. 94 years on Earth just seems insane. Some live to over 100.. My grandma has accomplished a lot in her life. She was a mother of 3 and a wonderful wife. My grandfather passed away a few years ago and it has crushed her ever since. Her Alzheimer’s has gotten really bad and she’s now in a care home. Last month we had a huge scare when she started having tremors and ended up hospitalized for a few days. She remembers being hospitalized but her memory of what really happened is way off. Things happen in life that makes you realize that we are blessed. I’m not sure if I would like to live till I’m 90, that seems like a lot. I just want to live a long happy, healthy life. We are going to see her today and bring her some cake. I’m so blessed to have her in my life. Happy Birthday Grandma!

A few of our favorite things

Thirty-One Gifts Go-To Tote is a beautiful, yet fun, well-made tote that you will definitely “go-to” every time you step out of the house. When me and my fiance go out to the beach, we make sure to always bring our Go-To Tote. It’s durable, so it can handle heavy items and just about everything we need! It also has plenty of pockets, so it fits your car keys, toys, sunglasses, and more! Read my full review HERE.

I’m also giving away an amazing Thirty-One Gifts holiday package! Check out the review to see how you can win. It ends today.
