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 Buffalo Style Sweet Potato Waffle Fries are just about PERFECTION!  I (Sarah) mean, really.  Plus they are made with sweet potato waffle fries like Alexia – which are already soooo good!  Just spice them up and drizzle with ranch, sprinkle with bleu cheese and BOOM!  

Do you have a favorite type of french fry? 

New trend alert!  Unicorn Trees, you guys!  I (Jeni) am a ridiculous Christmastime fan (I’m one of “those people”) – and I don’t begrudge anyone something that makes them happy!  I wouldn’t have a unicorn tree – but that doesn’t mean I can’t appreciate them!  They certainly ARE pretty adorable! 🙂

Do you have a theme for your holiday trees?

I (Sarah) am SO excited about this fun find!  In fact, I put it on my wishlist this morning and then hinted to my boyfriend about it 🙂 This Solar System Bracelet is AMAZING!  What better way for me to show off my love of Astronomy?  You can get the entire solar system in gold or silver, or single planets, too!

Have you recently added something to your wishlist??

Love Skittles?  Who doesn’t?!  These Zombie Skittles have five fruit flavors… Petrifying Citrus Punch, Mummified Melon, Boogeyman Blackberry, Chilling Black Cherry, and Blood Red Berry. But then, there’s something else – a hidden flavor.  And it tastes like “rotten zombie.”  YUCK!  And FUN!  Reminds me (Jeni) of the Harry Potter jelly beans!

What would you imagine that “rotten zombie” flavor actually tastes like?

Now, I (Sarah) don’t really know when, why or how you would ever want to use these Stinky Sprays… but I do think they are pretty funny, especially as gag gifts!  They come with three in a pack for $19.99:

  • SMELL FROM HELL – This prank spray is often referred to as smelling like sour milk or something rotting in the sun.
  • STINKY ASS SPRAY – Our best seller smells like straight up ASS in a bottle. Authentic unwashed ass smell.
  • TOXIC BOMB – This is a custom mixture of poop, dead animal, and old rotten food.

Can you think of a time you would use these?

Honestly, it really doesn’t get better than this! It’s a Pac-Man Arcade Game Shaped Mug!  Need a great holiday gift for a retro fan in your life? This is it!!  Both of us (Sarah & Jeni) are going NUTS over it! 🙂

Do you know someone that LOVES Pac-Man?

It’s pumpkin patch time!!!!  Woohoo! I (Jeni) am definitely happy that fall is just about here (at least the official start of fall). That means going to pumpkin patches, drinking cider, wearing cute scarves and boots… ohhhh yes!  This awesome site helps you find pumpkin patches in your area.  Check it out!

Do you have a favorite pumpkin patch in your city?

Ok. Seriously.  How was this not invented when airplanes were invented!?  Or when road trips were starting to become a thing!?  It’s so SMART!  These Hooded Travel Neck Pillows make so much sense and are super inexpensive too!  What a cool product.

What must-haves do you take with you when you travel?

These right here… these are ridiculous.  It’s my (Jeni) awesome chocolate cupcake recipe (if “awesome” means best ever in all the world), and it’s stuffed and topped with a perfect peanut butter buttercream that melts in your mouth.  Make them. Love them. <3  Ultimate Chocolate & Peanut Butter Cupcakes.

What’s your favorite flavor cupcake?

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

I (Sarah) love fall season… so I’m enjoying these slightly cooler mornings and evenings with this Slow Cooker Caramel Apple Cider!  Don’t worry – it’s a spiked cider 😉  Plus, you’ll get to smell it while it cooks for three hours. mmmmm!
My (Jeni) favorite cocktail is a White Russian.  Mmmmmm It’s Kahlua, vodka and milk. But this Pumpkin Spice White Russian uses pumpkin spice creamer instead of milk… which is just BRILLIANT!  Mmmmm!!!

What’s your FAVORITE seasonal flavor?

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


I (Sarah) am not known for being a great cook. I can follow a recipe, but usually if I try to make something without a recipe, it turns out to be a pretty big disaster. I also prefer “cute” stuff in the kitchen rather than functional. I recently bought a Snoopy grilled cheese maker, not because it had nice features, but because it had Snoopy on it. I also figured it’s a grilled cheese maker, what could go wrong.

And then this happened…

The results, as you can see have zero resemblance to grilled cheese. All though this photograph looks terrible, it was nothing compared to the taste of this grilled cheese which could only be described as burnt, cheesy shoe leather. Total #kitchenfail! I think I will stick to making grilled cheese on the stove in a skillet.

Have you ever had a kitchen disaster? Tell us about it!

I (Jeni) LOVE Texas.  I’m originally from the coast of California… but Texas – this is my home.  The one thing I don’t really dig about Texas… the weather.  It was 90+ degrees last week, until the weekend, and we had a low in the 40s and high in the 50s last Saturday.  However, this is the 10-day that I screenshot on Sunday to share with you all.

And look – it’s awesome!  It’s actually pretty nice, right?  I am normally ready to bitch and moan about the heat during the fall season here, but this is tripping me out – because it’s perfect!  So basically, the thing I hate about Texas (the crazy, unpredictable weather) is now the thing that makes me love it more!

Texas is like that bad influence friend in your life. 😉

What is the weather doing where you live?

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!
