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!
I (Sarah) recently found this Bacon-Cheddar Pinwheels recipe on the Pillsbury website. They are so delicious and super easy to make with bacon, crescent rolls, cheddar cheese, and green onions. Appetizers don’t get any tastier than this!
What do you snack on during Happy Hour?
I (Sarah) am a huge Star Trek fan, which is why I was over the moon excited when I spotted Star Trek beer at World Market! The beer is an Imperial Porter which has a very strong chocolate taste, while still being heavy on malt and hops flavoring. In other words, it’s awesome. It’s my current favorite beer!
What television show or movie would you like to see made into a beer?
Beer shampoo and conditioner is apparently a “thing” now that I (Sarah) did not know about. I found this invigorating beer shampoo and conditioner set on Amazon and my boyfriend was really excited to try it. The shampoo gives a really good lather and tingle while you are using it, and it actually does leave your hair soft and smooth. It’s all natural, which is something we look for, but when it dried, his hair didn’t smell like beer, I was so disappointed.
Would you try a beer shampoo?
These “Drinking Buddies” glass markers crack me (Jeni) up! I have wine charms, but these are so much better and so much more fun! What a perfect idea for parties…who wants to come over and have a BBQ with some drinks with me!?
Do you use wine charms or glass markers for parties or groups?
I’m (Jeni) not sure where this “smart fridge” would be used – other than maybe a man cave, but it’s pretty neat! The Office Bud-e is a smart fridge made for offices that can hold 180 beers. But even more shocking than a fridge for beer in an office is the fact that this fridge automatically refills itself. YES! It automatically places a delivery order to restock when it’s running low. I don’t know what companies have this fridge, but I’m sending my resume TODAY! 😉 Check out more about the Office Bud-e HERE.
Do you think your company would ever use an Office Bud-e?
Love Nintendo and Super Mario Bros.? You’ll have to check out this bar that’s Mario Bros. themed! Watch the video… I (Jeni) was a little disappointed, honestly, because I think it could be cooler, but it’s still pretty neat!
Have you ever been to a themed bar?
I (Sarah) am sipping on a beverage that gives sour watermelon candy a whole new meaning. It’s a Sour Watermelon Slushie. You infuse vodka with Sour Patch watermelon candy overnight, and then you use it to make the tastiest slushie you’ve ever had. I am a huge sour candy fan so this drink is right up my alley.
Hello, 1995! Tonight’s Happy Hour for me (Jeni) is filled with nostalgia. We told you about the return of Zima a few weeks ago, and I really wanted to get some, but was afraid I wouldn’t find it. It’s limited edition, so it won’t be around very long. But when I was in Walmart this weekend, look what I found near the registers! I scooped it up, knowing it’s the perfect Happy Hour drink.
Honestly, it’s grody. I don’t know how I ever drank this stuff! 🙂 I put in some watermelon Jolly Ranchers (like I used to) and that made it a little bit better. Still, it was fun to try again!
What are you sipping on tonight for Happy Hour?
No truer statement than that meme right there! I (Jeni) am 41. Mother Nature already cursed me every month (read about my thoughts on that HERE!) and Father Time isn’t doing me any favors, either. I don’t mind the wrinkles around my eyes- that means I’ve laughed a lot. I don’t mind my skin sagging a little – that’s just my wisdom of 41 years weighing down my skin. 🙂 And I don’t even mind all of the changes my body has been flung into because I just hit “middle age.”
What I DO mind is chin hairs. I mean really? REALLY!? Hormones, cramps, periods and insomnia aren’t enough of a beating, Mother Nature? Now you have to make me grow a dang beard?? I get it. We’re human – Homo Sapiens. It’s in our leftover DNA to be hairy creatures. But DANG…chin hair? You’ll never see one on me, though. I pluck those babies as soon as they try to emerge. Take THAT, Mother Nature!
Are you experiencing any yucky changes like chin hair? Come on, ladies, don’t leave me hanging by myself here! 🙂
I (Sarah) have a major allergy to cigarette smoke, so I was thrilled when a local casino added a non smoking wing. Then I was immediately disappointed when I learned that there was no separate entrance and you had to walk through the smoking section of the casino to get to the non smoking section. I’m not a big gambler, but I love the food at casinos, so I was mega disappointed by this. What’s the point of a smoke free section if you have to walk through the smoking section to get there?
How do you feel about “non-smoking” sections?
This is my (Sarah’s) soap dish. Do you see how messy it is? This is two days after washing it and cleaning it completely. Our household loves Aveeno bar soap, but it always makes a huge mess in our soap dish and in our sink. It also leaves these awful pink specks in our sink, these pictures are two days after we cleaned the entire bathroom top to bottom. Why do the good health and beauty products always make a huge mess?
Do you have a constant problem in your home?
