It’s Wednesday, which means it’s time to brush off the stress, negativity and blah of your week. Enjoy some mid-week mixers with us without leaving the comfort of your home. Uncork your favorite wine, pop open a beer, mix your favorite cocktail…. and unwind with us this evening. And, if you’re feeling extra perky in the mornings, or need some help getting a jump on your day, join us for Morning Coffee weekday mornings, too!
These pretzel parmesan chicken bites are everything! It’s the flavor of pretzels, parmesan cheese, parmesan chicken, and almost a pizza like sauce and cheese flavor that is delectable. I (Sarah) had to make a double batch of these, because the last time I made them, we ran out!
What are you snacking on this evening?
Summer carnivals are the highlight of the season for many. I (Sarah) recently heard about a bar in Seattle, Washington called Unicorn with a joining bar called Narwhal. They both have a carnival theme, and when I say carnival, I mean carnival. We are talking food, decor, games, the works. This looks like an amazing place to have a drink! Take the virtual Bar Tour HERE!
Would you visit a carnival themed bar?
I (Sarah) spotted this Mortal Kombat beer last night. Seriously, a beer for video games? What will they think of next. I bought the Imperial Stout and was pretty impressed by the flavor, it’s a smooth stout with a strong vanilla bean flavor. I can’t wait to try the others!
What franchise would you like to see made into a beer?
My (Jeni) favorite things in the world are dinosaurs, bacon and wine. A tank top that can incorporate two of those things is a winner in my book! 😉 This WinoSaur tank top is cute, funny and comes in lots of great colors. I totally just bought two.
Do you know someone that would love this tank?
Not a big drinker or fan of alcohol? Martha Stewart has some really yummy Mocktail recipes for you! Now you can join the party, and enjoy a drink without the alcohol! Plus, it’s Martha – who doesn’t love Martha?
What’s your favorite mocktail?
That weird glass is a shot glass. But it’s a special shot glass, because it’s a shot glass AND chaser in one container! Genius. Just genius. This is the Double Bubble Shot Glass and super smart for people that love shots!
Do you use chasers when you take shots?
I (Sarah) am sipping on this Cucumber White Sangria tonight. It is such a refreshing drink. It reminds me of cucumber water, only with a kick of course!
Since my run cocktail idea failed miserably (see Bitches & Moans below), tonight, I (Jeni) am improvising with something I already had in my pantry. Seagram’s Escapes sound like something I can go for tonight – because they are fruity, light and don’t taste like alcohol really. I could throw them in my Magic Bullet with some ice for a frozen treat – but now, I’m just sipping away 🙂
Do you ever drink coolers?
I (Sarah) love using a bug zapper indoors because during spring and summer time we end up with all sorts of flying bugs in our apartment. This is mostly due to the fact that there is a huge gap underneath the door. It’s an awful thing when mosquitoes and wasps start coming indoors. Luckily they love the bug zapper, but I hate the zapping sound. It is so loud, I jump every time it zaps a bug. I get that it has to make that sound to fry the bugs, but does it have to scare me every single time?
What do you use to keep the bugs away?
This is how I (Sarah) feel every time I have to get eye drops put in. Right now I have a sinus infection that started with an eye infection and I have to use antihistamine eye drops. They burn and hurt for a whole 15 seconds after having them put into my eyes, but you would think by my reaction I was in a torture chamber? I would rather do just about anything, including go to the doctor’s office than have eye drops put in.
Do you or your kids hate taking some type of medicine?
I (Jeni) am incredibly ticklish. Like, VERY ticklish. You can touch my leg, and there’s a 50% chance I’ll cringe and pull back because you accidentally tickled me. So I REALLY hate when people purposefully tickle me. Just because my natural reaction is to laugh, does NOT mean I’m having fun or loving it! I can’t help but laugh – it’s seriously a major flaw in the human body, I think. It sends the WRONG message. It isn’t fun, it doesn’t feel good and it isn’t funny. My laughing is involuntary. I can’t stand being tickled, and if it’s done to me on purpose, I am NOT responsible for your injuries.
Do you like being tickled??
If that picture doesn’t break your heart, then you must not have one.
Just kidding, you still have a heart 🙂 But it sure broke mine (Jeni). I was going to make a delicious rum drink for Happy Hour tonight, and I guess my freezer was too packed, because when I opened the door…. the bottle of rum…the glass bottle of Bacardi Rum fell to the floor and shattered. Needless to say, I’m not having a rum cocktail this evening, and this now became one of my bitches and moans for the week!
What kind of rum to do you like?
Catch up and get more Happy Hour HERE!
I (Sarah) am totally wanting this Igloo wine cooler for my kitchen. I hate storing wine in the fridge because you have to turn the temperature down so low that it freezes everything else. It’s only $49.99, too!
How cute are these wine chillers totes? Just $14.76 for the pair!
This river and lake float would be a great place for Happy Hour parties. Just $108.95!
Have a great rest of your week! See you tomorrow for Morning Coffee!
