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!
Yummy treats and random chit-chat starts our Happy Hour together!
These Chicken Parmesan Bites sound like an AMAZING appetizer – but they could also be a great meal, too! Plus, they are really a very simple recipe, that doesn’t require much that you probably don’t already have in your kitchen.
What dipping sauce would you use for these?
If you’re a Hallmark Christmas movie fan – you’ll definitely want to check out this awesome Hallmark Christmas Movie Watching Necessities list! Even if you aren’t a fan, these make great gifts for the people in your life that can’t get enough of these movies!
Are you a Hallmark Christmas movie junkie?
Fashion Week is not something I (Jeni) am even remotely interested in. However, this is pretty hilarious – because some of the models were wearing these “pedestal shoes” – shaped like dolphins leaping over waves. It just made the ridiculous fashions even more silly to me! 🙂
Are you a fan of Paris Fashion Week?
Ohhhhhh, yah! I (Jeni) could spend all day on these pretty little ladies! I totally want to go roller skating now. Doesn’t that sound like a BLAST!? Roller rinks aren’t very popular anymore….but I could totally go for an ICEE, crappy hot dog, and getting my boogy on while rolling around under a disco light! I was shopping for inline skates, and found these AWESOME Roller Skates for adults. I think I’m in love!
Would you rock some roller skates?
Pumpkin Caramel Pecan Cupcakes. Yep. They are just about the most perfect fall cupcake with a beautifully rich pumpkin cupcake that is filled with a caramel pecan mixture. It’s topped with a light pumpkin spice buttercream. And yes, they are as good as they look, if not BETTER!
What are your favorite fall flavors?
Can we take a moment to appreciate these pastel rainbow Alpaca Slippers? They are so much better than a classic bunny slipper…. and I (Jeni) am in LOVE with mine! I have worn them every day for the last 3 months, and giggle every time I see them!
What animal would you like as slippers?
Here’s a really fun way to work up to the best day of the year (for some, at least!). These 12 Days of Christmas Surprise Boxes from Bad Habit Boutique are made for women and girls, and have 12 different gifts, so you can countdown from the 12th-24th! They have AMAZING items inside, so they are kind of pricey – $129. BUT you can save $30 on one with the code in this post!
What fun traditions do you have for the holidays?
That classic Libby’s pumpkin pie recipe we all know and love will never change. It’s been around for 75 years! BUT WAIT – it has changed! For the first time ever, they updated their recipe and call it New-Fashioned Pumpkin Pie. It’s creamier and includes both evaporated and sweetened condensed milk.
Do you make a classic or twist on the classic pumpkin pie every year?
Do you have an Elf that scouts out your kids behavior every year? Do you dress it up? These clothes are cracking me (Sarah) up so much – it’s so silly and fun! I love the gingerbread costume for it – that’s my favorite 🙂 See all of these fun Elf on the Shelf clothes!
What do you do with your Elf?
Try a fun, new adult beverage this week, or save the recipes for parties with friends!
White Russian Milkshake. Nothing beats a delicious milkshake, especially with liquor in it. 😉 White Russians are my (Jeni) favorite cocktails. I LOVE them! But a White Russian Milkshake? I’m sold… especially since it’s still in the 90s here in Dallas, Texas!
What is your favorite milkshake?
This Cotton Candy Margarita is right up my (Sarah) alley, that’s for sure! Such The Spot even has a great video to show you how to make it! Cream soda, orange liqueur, tequila, cotton candy…. oh yah, I’m on it!
Do you like flavored margaritas?
What’s Happy Hour without getting all that negativity out of your system? Get it out and let it go!
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??
I (Sarah) have some crazy food allergies. It’s not even worth getting into the details, because it will blow your mind. Needless to say, I have food allergies, and it’s a HUGE pain in the butt! I can easily adapt to eating new things, but when you’re limited in choices, that starts getting difficult.
The hardest part is when companies change their ingredients, but don’t report it. Most people wouldn’t know…but my body… it knows. And it makes me so mad that companies can get away with that! GRRRRRR!
Do you have any weird food allergies?
Your drink should be kicking in by now, so let’s have some giggles together!
Ok, friends, it’s time to shut down Happy Hour and get back to reality! But first, grab that last bargain drink, and check out some limited time deals and treat yourself this week to something special! You deserve it!
Treat yo self! 🙂
Ahhhhhh! These slippers are hilarious and awesome all in one! They are supposed to look like Chucks, and really seem like they would be super comfy. They are only about $20, and there are tons of styles and colors.
If you know a Golden Girls fan (or you are one), this would make an awesome gift! It’s a Golden Girls bundle that includes shot glasses, Mad Libs, and 2 of the Golden Girls games! It’s $58 for all of those things.
WOW! Grab this Wilton 101 Cookie Cutter Set for less than $10 right now! It has alphabet letters, numbers and something for every holiday!
Ahhhhhhh! We love watching those Tasty cooking videos on our Facebook feeds… and you know Jeni loves to bake! The Tasty Dessert Book is on sale for only about $13 right now!
Have a great rest of your week! See you tomorrow for Morning Coffee!
