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 sweet little cookies are a definitely delicious favorite any time I (Jeni) make them!  Plus, these Chocolate Covered Cherry Cookies are super simple to make!  They have a great burst of Maraschino cherry in the middle, with a decadent milk chocolate cookie and topping.  Mmmmmm!

What’s your favorite flavor to combine with chocolate?

For the savory appetizer, I (Sarah) found this amazing Waffled Pizza Dippers recipe! How fun is this?  You basically use refrigerated pizza dough, dress it up with Italian flavors, and press in your waffle iron.  Then, you can dip them in a great marinara.  YUM!  That’s a fun dinner idea, too!

What are your favorite ways to use a waffle maker?

When it’s cold outside, do you put on your plain, ordinary, boring mittens before heading out?  These Hedgehog Mittens will be a game changer for you!  How CUTE are these?  They come in several color options, and besides looking adorable, the reviews talk a lot about the warmth they offer!

I (Jeni) love Target.  They always have the cutest, most clever new items!  This chocolate avocado is no exception.  I mean, seriously – it’s an adorable, chocolate avocado!  It’s made for Valentine’s Day, so it even says, “Let’s Avo-Cuddle” on the box.  Awwwww!  Get it at Target or HERE for only $5.99!

What are your favorite recent Target finds?

EEEEEK!  I (Jeni) am super excited for this news!  The new live-action G.I. Joe movie is in production!!  It’s called, Snake Eyes, and it’s a prequel and reboot to the G.I. Joe film saga that started in 2009.  They are filming in Japan, and the move is going to be released October 23, 2020. Read more about it HERE.

Are you liking these ’80s toy/cartoon reboots?

Seriously.  Instead of a dozen roses, I (Sarah) would rather have this bouquet of bears!  Aren’t they precious!?  I actually decided to make my girl friends (for Galentine’s Day, of course) some bouquets of stuffed animals using these adorable bears (there are three kinds on that page)!

Do you do anything with your girl friends for Galentine’s Day?

Unicorn Farts Beer.  Already, that sounds fun!  But then find out it’s brewed with crushed Fruity Pebbles cereal, and WOW!  It’s so much better! 🙂  It’s actually got edible glitter in it, too.  It’ll be out for a limited re-release this summer, but only in specific states.   For me (Jeni), it’s nice just knowing such a beer actually exists. 😉  Read more about it HERE.

What flavors do you think of when you hear “unicorn farts”?

These 3D puzzles blow my (Sarah) mind.  I LOVE them! This Ravensburger 3D American Style Sneaker Puzzle is under $20, and hours of fun to put together.  Plus, when you’re done, you can use it for a ton of different purposes!

Do you like putting puzzles together?

Try a fun, new adult beverage this week, or save the recipes for parties with friends!

When I (Jeni) make a cocktail, it needs to be EASY to make.  I don’t need 5 different ingredients that I have to purchase JUST for this one cocktail.  That’s why when my sister sent me this Pomegranate Mimosa recipe, I ran out to grab what I needed without a complaint!  Pomegranates, pomegranate juice, and champagne.  That’s all you need!  And it’s absolutely DELICIOUS!

Chocolate Pudding Shots

The only thing I (Sarah) love more than chocolate pudding is pudding shots. Chocolate Pudding Shots are an after dinner drink and a dessert rolled into one. They are perfect for weeknight drinks and wonderful for parties.  I usually have to make two batches, one with milk chocolate pudding mix and one with dark chocolate pudding mix to keep the peace in our household.

Do you have a favorite shot?

What’s Happy Hour without getting all that negativity out of your system? Get it out and let it go!

UGGGGGGGGGH!!!!  You guyyyssssss… I (Jeni) am whiny!!!!  😉  Blah. But seriously, I’m bummed that the new Gremlins series is coming out.  Yah, I never thought I’d say that, either.  I’m bummed because it’s not live action.  It’s animated.  I’m not an animation fan… unless it’s The Little Mermaid or an ’80s cartoon.  Those are the only two exceptions.  

Anyway, the premise still sounds cool… “In the animated television adaptation, we travel back to 1920s Shanghai to reveal the story of how 10-year-old Sam Wing (future shop owner Mr. Wing in the 1984 movie) met the young Mogwai called Gizmo.”  But it would be cooler if it were live action.

Read more about it HERE.

Are you a live action or animated fan?

New vs Old Children's Cartoons

This right here is a comparison of the original My Little Pony cartoon and the new My Little Pony cartoon. All though I (Sarah) was delighted to see the ponies back in stores and on tv, I was disappointed at the new look of the ponies. I was also disappointed with the new look of the Care Bears, Transformers, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, and Strawberry Shortcake, just to name a few.

I would love to see Hollywood quit rebooting and remaking shows and movies from my childhood and come up with something new and different. While I think some of the new shows are adorable, they don’t come anywhere close to the original and I feel like my childhood is slipping away forever.

Are you a fan of the new or vintage?

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! 🙂

Remember BFF necklaces when we were kids?  These bestie bracelets are the coolest way to connect with your BFF and always remember her, but in adult form!  Plus, they are only around 12 bucks!

These chunky knit scarves will keep you warm… in TONS of great colors! And at only $9.99 each, you can stock up for every outfit! COZY!!!!

These hilarious and sassy oven mitts (there are other styles!) are so much fun!  Just $12.99 each!

Have a great rest of your week!  See you tomorrow for Morning Coffee!

  8. Those chocolate covered cookies look amazing. I may need to make those sometime. The pizza dippers look amazing as well. I’ve been wanting to make foods like that with my waffle maker too.

  9. I would love to drop my body off at the gym! LOL.
    And I am not sure which I like better with the My Little Pony old or new. Watched the old when I was young and watch the new with my girls.

  10. I saw ‘waffle pizza’ and went yuk! Then I read the recipe and it’s not that bad.

  11. I know you wrote ALL this stuff, but I am very focused on those waffle pizza dippers. Not kidding! Hey, my 17, 13 and 11 year old already think I’m crazy so I am going to whip that up and serve for dinner one night next week. Let’s see how cray cray they think I am then 😉 Looks yummy!

  12. oh, my! That unicorn farts beer completely caught my attention. I would love to try that for sure. Thanks for sharing.

  13. I love the hedgehog mittens! We have a pet hedgehog so my daughters would absolutely love these. They’d make a great Valentine’s Day gift!

    That beer Unicorn Farts had me ROFL. I told my husband about it and he said, “must be for women. I don’t know if any man would even want to be seen with those in their shopping carts. ” I would love to try it though. Maybe my husband would change his mind when he takes a sip. 🙂

  15. Those mittens are just so cute..! I would definitely love to eat that Avocado chocolate at any time of the year. Walmart has so many great buys.

  16. Oh my! That chocolate avocado is calling my name. I mean, two of my favorites in one?! I need to grab me one or two or more ASAP!
