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!  

HAAAAPPPYYYY HOUUURRRRRR! Hey friends!  We’re so glad you’re here!  Check out this amazing appetizer we found – Spinach Artichoke Wontons from Dinner at the Zoo! We’re loving that blog, too, by the way.  Anyway, this is like the ultimate in finger food dips!  Don’t they look amazing!?

What’s your favorite appetizer when you go out?

Maple Pecan Cupcakes – because every season is a good season for maple and pecans, right!?  These are loaded with rich maple flavor and creamy sweet pecans, topped with a fun brown sugar maple buttercream!

What sweets are you snacking on lately?

Nothing is cuter than a baby version of something …. right?  That includes dinosaurs! Halftoys are collectible toys that are magnetic puzzle toys.  And they just started something new – Half-Babies!  It’s baby dinosaurs and other animals in DIAPERS!  Each comes with the animal or dino, crib, and diaper. I (Jeni) am melting!  See the Kickstarter to learn more and see more pictures of them!

What baby version of something can you not resist?

Do you have a rear windshield wiper?  Now you can have one that will not only function, but will entertain vehicles behind you too!  HAHAH! This is a Hanging Sloth for Rear Wipers, and OMG it’s pretty cute!  It’s definitely unique, isn’t it?

Do you have anything fun inside or outside of your vehicle?

Ready for some refreshing new Starbucks drinks!?  The secret menus just keep growing and growing!  I (Jeni) found these two great roundups of some really fun secret menu drinks HERE and HERE!  I’m trying the “Liquid Cocaine” – 4 shots of espresso, 4 pumps white chocolate, ice to fill grande cup, then fill with milk!  YUM!  If you like it seasonal and sweet, try the Cadbury Creme Egg: Ask for a java chip Frappuccino with two shots espresso, vanilla bean powder, caramel syrup and vanilla syrup.

What drink do you want to try? 

Calling all book lovers! If you love to loan out your books, but fear not getting them back… get this adorable customized embosser!  Make it your own, then mark your territory with some class 🙂  

What books are you reading right now?

KFC teamed up with Crocs to make fried chicken Crocs.  They even smell like fried chicken. The commercial/ad is really weird, which is nothing new for KFC… we’ll let you decide! 🙂 Their marketing team are freaking geniuses!  READ MORE

Would YOU wear KFC Crocs?

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

My (Jeni) birthday is coming up (April 1), so I always like to treat myself to something really fun!  I haven’t settled on anything yet, but this pretty cocktail is totally in the running!  It’s Confetti Champagne!  Check out the ingredients, you guys:

lime wedge
1/3 c. assorted Pop Rocks
6 oz. vanilla vodka 
bottle Champagne (or Prosecco)
(20 oz.) bottle Sprite
See how to put them together!
 
Do you have something special on your birthday?
As I (Sarah) was helping Jeni hunt down some fun cocktails, I spotted these Mimosa Floats!!  I think she should have these on her birthday 🙂  It’s literally just white chocolate, rainbow sprinkles, champagne (or Prosecco) and rainbow sherbet.  YUM!!!
 
What fun thing do you make with sprinkles?

What’s Happy Hour without getting all that negativity out of your system? Get it out and let it go!  Got something bugging you, but don’t wanna share it with everyone?  Email us (thatsjustjeni@gmail.com) and we’re happy to hear you out!

Ok.  Once again, let me (Jeni) just be clear – if you do any of the things that I bitch and moan about, I’m not saying you shouldn’t.  I’m just saying I never would, and feel like bitching about them.  And this week, my bitch is about nail trends.  UGH!  There have been some crazy trends – putting shag carpet on nails, painting them insane colors, and putting weird stuff on them.

Right now, there are a few that I think are absolutely ridiculous.  Glass tips.  But most of these, you can SEE the real nail underneath… which totally defeats the purpose.  And it’s literally GLASS… I would be scared to grab anything!  The outline nails are just as strange to me.  They remind of me a coloring book.

And finally – the best (worst) for last.  Succulent nails. Yep. I’ll just leave that one alone.

What trends drive you crazy right now?

I (Sarah) love my generations. I’m an 80s/90s kid.  Our movies and TV shows and toys were definitely iconic.  And that’s been pretty obvious lately, since toy companies are “revamping” our originals to fit this new kid generation. And they look stupid.

Plus, we’re getting TONS of reboots and new versions of old movies and shows from my generation…  Lost Boys TV show, Little Shop of Horrors remake… I could go on and on and on.  Luckily I don’t have to because this website has that covered – up to 2018, at least.  Yah, they’ve been at this for a WHILE.   And guess what – it’ll never be the same or better than the classic.  Never.

So I just have one thing to say…. GET YOUR OWN DAMN STUFF, NEW GENERATION!  

Any thoughts about remakes and reboots?

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! 🙂

Done! Sold!  These Mighty Handles will definitely help you make just one trip from the car with your groceries! And a 2-pack is just $9.99!

  1. I have got to make those wontons they look so scrumptious and good for you. I get my nails done about 2 -3 times per year but this is the first i am seeing of the glass look.

    The KFC crocs are a hoot! I cannot imagine crocs that smell like chicken. I would be hungry all the time.

  3. I want all those Starbucks drinks. Yum! I also could use one of those cupcakes.

    Oh, and my daughter would so do the 80-100 word thing. She loves to do funny things on school papers. Most teachers are amused. Some are like, “Stop.”

  4. I want mimosa floats for my birthday now! And those nails are ridiculous. Who thinks of these things?

  5. I can’t wait to try some of those Starbucks drinks. Currently drooling over the Spinach Artichoke Wontons . They look so yummy!

  6. The Starbucks treats really have my attention, but I cannot do the sugar! One of those drinks had 70g of carbs. That’s practically a weeks worth of carbs. Ha. It won’t stop me but still.

  7. Those wontons look amazing. I always order wontons when I go out for Chinese food. They are the best!

  8. Yum! Those Spinach Artichoke Wontons and Maple Pecan Cupcakes look sooo scrumptious! I can’t wait to try them. And those baby dinosaurs look sooo adorable.

  9. I haven’t seen glass nails before, but they are strange! I’d love to try those wontons as well as the cupcakes!

  10. Those appetizers look tasty! I wonder how many calories are in the Starbucks drinks. And those nails are all bizarre.

  11. The Spinach Artichoke Wontons and Maple Pecan Cupcakes look delicious. I need to make both. Those nail trends are so weird.

  12. Those spinach artichoke wontons look delicious. I can’t remember the last time I had wontons. I have to make those and satisfy my cravings.

  13. There are so many stuid nail trends out there and I can not believe that people are willing to do some of that stuff. A different pattern is one thing but the ones that put hair on their fingers? yuck!

  14. Those markers are awesome and what a deal. Same with the boots – super good deal and super cute!!!!

    Succulent nails? LOLOLOL!!! And those wontons look delicious!

  16. That customizable embosser is amazing. I would love to stamp all of my books.

  17. Tiffany La Forge-Grau Reply

    Those cupcakes look so delicious. Pretty much everything on here is in my flavor wheelhouse!

  18. I love the hanging sloth for a rear windshield wiper. It makes me sad that I got rid of my SUV which had a rear wiper. Also, those are some seriously weird nails. I’m going to get my nails done today, but I will not be coming home with clear nails or succulent nails.

  19. Spinach is one of my favorite veggies, so I really need to make some of those wontons, they look delicious

  20. I love wonton. Can’t wait to try those spinach artichoke wontons, look so good!

  21. I didn’t know those were nail trends. I don’t like those either.

  22. Those nail trends are quite odd. I can’t imagine the purpose for having clear nails, especially if the natural nail doesn’t look impeccable. People are so weird.

    Liquid cocaine sounds really good and I love the pic of It.
