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 Potato Skins are more than meets the eye! There are just 5 ingredients, and one of them is pimento cheese! They are great little appetizers, but could be an awesome side dish, too.

How do you like your potato skins?

The complete Golden Girls series on DVD.  Everyone should own this.  If you don’t – get it.  Gift it to a fan.  EVERYONE should own this!! 🙂  Plus- for all 7 seasons, it’s only $89!

EEEEK!  This is the coolest baking tool of the YEAR right here! This Huge Cookie Cutter is exclusive to Target stores, and it’s amazing. It cuts 24 cookies for you in one cut – trees, stars, snowflakes and more.  Yep – I (Jei) will definitely grabbing this for holiday baking this year! 🙂 It’s perfect for my Coconut Sugar Cookies!

What are your favorite things to bake during the holidays?

SOOOOO much cuteness!  This is a vibrating sloth reading pillow, and it’s called the Smoko Plush Vibrating Boo Pillow. Yah – you may need to read that again. It’s actually a great back support, too. Plus, can you imagine the Instagram pics you can take with it?  😉

Do you have a special pillow you use for comfort?

Guess what!? Build-a-Bear has some amazing new and really fun products!  In fact, they are more suited for adults rather than kids this time. Their holiday collection includes a Cousin Eddie from National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation, and even A Christmas Story Bear!

Do you or your kids have Build-a-Bears?

What’s your favorite fall baked treat?

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

Sugar Cookie Shots

Tonight, I (Sarah) am downing Sugar Cookie Shots. Yes, I said Sugar Cookies! These amazing little dessert drinks are made with Vanilla Vodka, Birthday Cake Vodka, and White Chocolate Liqueur topped with whipped cream, sprinkles, topped with cookies. If you have ever had Lofthouse sugar cookies (with the bright pink frosting) from the grocery store, these taste just like it.

If you could create a cookie flavored shot – which cookie would you pick?

Apple Pie Cider

This week calls for something sweet and peppy to drink!  Tonight, I (Jeni) am sipping on these Not Your Mom’s Apple Pie Ciders.  I can’t get enough.  You guys – no joke – they literally taste like apple cider.  These would be especially great for the people that don’t really dig the taste of alcohol, too.  This company also makes Not Your Mom’s Strawberry Rhubarb and Not Your Mom’s Iced Tea…which I will soon have to find and try both!! 🙂

What’s your poison tonight?

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

I (Sarah) am not big on social media.  One of the reasons is because of these stupid trends I see going on all the time.  The most recent is REALLY stupid – using eyelash glue to create the appearance of fuller, thicker lips.  Yah. Women are putting glue above their mouth, then pressing their lips to it.  It’s stupid.  WHY does this stuff even trend??  Ugh.

What stupid trends have you seen lately?

Ok.  This is my (Jeni) remote collection. The boyfriend insists on having all kinds of speakers and junk around the TV, so, of course, we have to have all kinds of remotes.  I literally cannot turn on the tv in our living room. I’ve put stickers on the backs of the remotes I’m supposed to use…however, it doesn’t seem to ever work. I just found out that he changed up one of the speakers or woofers or whatever they are. Yet, neglected to notify me of this change.  UGH! It’s really frustrating.

What happened to the days of having ONE remote to turn on the TV and turn it off!?  We even have one of those universal remotes…. but he doesn’t use that. Go figure.

Oh, by the way, there were 2 other remotes that I found that aren’t in the picture. That makes a total of  8. EIGHT REMOTES.

What bitches and moans do you have this week?

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!

  1. Hilarious as usual! Those potatoes at the top look amazing! That trend with the eyelash glue is so stupid but so is putting glue on my eyes in my opinion.

  2. I would love those potato skins! I like lots of cheese and bacon on mine.

    Also, I want to try those Elf on the Shelf pancakes. Probably more than my kids. They look tasty!

  3. Oh my gosh the meme about the cell phone I have done that! I was looking for my phone while I was holding it and talking on it. I swear some days I wonder how I make it through the day alive LOL.

  4. The sloth vibrating reading pillow looks so comfy and cozy to snuggle up with. I’m not sure how sloths entered the realm of cute animals, but it works!

  5. I can totally WAIT until the years when my son throws a fit about what he eats – that’s for sure. Right now he is 10 months and pretty cool with what we feed him! He likes to just put ANYTHING in his mouth, hahahaha! Also, um, I need those blue tooth string lights!

  6. We may have to stop into IHOP soon. The new dishes are sounding pretty tasty!

  7. The huge cookie cutter looks like such a great idea and time saver. It would be perfect to get for all of my upcoming holiday baking.

  8. Those Potato Skins looks really scrumptious. Can’t wait to try them. And that Bright Tunes Bluetooth String Lights would be perfect for Christmas. I will check it out.

  9. I am crazy about that Magnolia kitchen huge cookie cutter. I saw the same one on Amazon for $44, and you link is for Target at $14.99 which I think is a real bargain.

  10. Those potato skins look amazing. It has been so long since I have made those. I also have to say how amazing that cookie cutter is. I need one of those!

  11. Can you believe that my husband has never seen an episode of Golden Girls? I was shocked when he told me that recently. I’m going to have to get the dvd set and we’re going to binge watch it. Everyone MUST see this epic show!

  12. Oh my goodness, I NEED that cookie cutter! That would save SO much time, and the kids fighting over who gets to cut the next one out, and me pulling my hair out just wanting it to be done.

  13. A potato skin snack. This is definitely a snack idea that my family will go crazy for! Looks so inviting!

  14. My cousin is a huge Golden Girls fan. I need to get these DVDs for her for Christmas. She will love me! lol

  15. I wanted to do Elf on the Shelf a few years back, but my son was still little then and it freaked him out. He’s a teen now so we’ll see. 🙂

  16. My daughters were obsessed with Build-a-Bears! I love the ones they are coming out with! I am so excited that the Golden Girls are all on dvd!

  17. Omg you always have the best things!! Give me all the snacks and build a bear things please! 🙂

  18. That cookie-cutter is something that I’m definitely going to buy! Glad to know that Golden Girls are on DVD!

  19. I have had the sugar cookie shot. It is dangerous! ha! I love the cookie cutter. Why didn’t I think of something so simple?

  20. The pillow is so cute! My daughter would love to get one for winter!

  21. The pillow is so cute! My daughter would love to get one for winter!

  23. Mary Gardner Reply

    I love the singing lights! But the remote situation drives me nuts and I feel your pain.

  24. I really need to get one of those giant cookie cutters for the holidays this year!
