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!  

Happy Happy Hour, friends!  To kick it off today, how about these Shrimp Tostado Bites!?  They feature queso blanco and fajita seasoning, and look pretty dang awesome!

And for your sweet tooth… Mint Chocolate Fudge Cookies!  This very simple but delicious recipe is perfect for those that adore that sassy combination of mint + chocolate.

What snacks are you eating lately?


These GUND Pusheen Keychains have us cracking up! First, they are both large – the unicorn is 8.5 inches, which seems really big for a keychain! Second, because the Pusheen creatures riding the unicorn and seahorse are hilarious.  These would definitely be great conversation starters if you have them on your keys… but would also be perfect for baby to chew on if they get ahold of your keys ????

What unique keychains do you have right now?

It’s raining a lot here in Dallas where I (Jeni) live.  I just found the perfect solution, though – a flamingo umbrella… because you can still be super cute when it’s raining!  And there’s also a swan or cow version of the umbrella, too!  

Are you a Costco shopper?  If you’re  a hardcore Costco shopper, you’ll definitely appreciate these Costco Pajamas!! They come with socks, and you guys – they are only $9.97 for the set! That’s crazy! The pattern is too cute- shopper watching football on a huge TV, the tire department, someone pushing a huge cart, the hue pizza slices….

Are you a big Costco shopper?

Did you know you can buy bloody mary in a can?  And did you know that Frank’s RedHot makes a canned bloody mary!?  They are actually pre-mixed, so it’s pop and drink, and you don’t need a mixer.  It’s flavored with Frank’s RedHot Original Cayenne Pepper Sauce – PHEW!

Are you  a spicy fan?

This guy is HILARIOUS!!!  He’s an actor from Buffy the Vampire Slayer (I, Jeni, never watched so I don’t know him), and he recreates celebrity photos. He uses stuff he can find around his home or can buy for a few bucks, and the results are so freaking funny!  Look closely at the image above – see anything you recognize? hehe! Check out the slideshow HERE!

Have you ever dressed up like a celebrity?

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

Root Beer Float Martini

Check out this amazing Root Beer Float Martini. Yes, that’s a real thing, and I (Sarah) want it! It takes the classic Root Beer Float and steps it up a notch and it’s perfect for Happy Hour! Get the recipe HERE!

What are your favorite flavored martinis?

Kahlua has an Espresso Martini.  In a can.  A Kahlua espresso martini, you guys.  Holy moly, I (Jeni) am SO ready for one of these!  I don’t really think I need to explain… because every bit of the name of this beverage is heavenly.  Plus, it’s in a can, which makes it more portable!

Are you a coffee fan?

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

Disney is making another live action movie. This time – Rapunzel. I (Sarah) am a little tired of the Disney live action movies and wondering if they have anything new left in Hollywood? I’m a HUGE Disney fan and supporter, but come on already!  The original content needs to happen more frequently than these live actions!  You can read more about it HERE.

Are you enjoying these constant live action recreations?

I (Jeni) don’t get the whole crazy selfie craze.  Maybe I’m old.  I take selfies, of course.  But I don’t jump in front of a train or stand in front of a waterfall or anything.  This survey found that 41% surveyed have put themselves in dangerous situations to capture a selfie.  WHAT?  What in the world is wrong with people!?

I don’t even like taking selfies in pubic, when other people are around.  I get embarrassed, I think.  And I always wonder – how can people NOT be embarrassed looking all silly at their phone, while TOTALLY unaware of their surroundings?!  I just shake my head. 

Do you put yourself in dangerous situations for a selfie!?

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! 🙂

  1. Mint chocolate fudge cookies?! Yes please! I need them in my life.

    I saw that Baby Yoda shirt at Hot Topic and loved it.

  2. I love everything here! Who is that from Buffy? That was a great show! And that Bloody Mary mix, I need it! I do not drink alcohol, but I love a spicy virgin Bloody Mary!

  3. I have always loved the clothes and prices at Costco so i will look for those PJs. I am not a martini gal but root beer float ones in a can have to be tried.

  4. My daughter loves all things Pusheen and would absolutely flip over the Pusheen keychains. Also, we love Uno at our house and I bet we’d love DOS too. Sounds fun!

  5. I don’t know what I want to try more… the shrimp tostada bites or the mint chocolate chip cookies. They both look so yummy!

  6. You always put together such a wonderful post. My son will love the mint fudge cookies. Looking forward to making them for him.

  7. Those Costco jammies are funny. I also cracked up over the meme about looking like a Victorian child with influenza. So funny!!! Also I have been curious about that game Dos. I think I will get that for my son for his birthday. Thanks for the fun post as always!

  8. Those shrimp tostado bites are so cool and fancy. Love the finger food and they are so perfect for my weekend movie night!

  9. Oh wow! Toasted shrimp is one of my favorite and this recipe is new to me. I would love to try this! Yummy!

  10. I am a big fan of seafood and those shrimp tostado bites look amazing. I want them right now. Too bad, I don’t have the ingredients. 🙂

    Now that looks like some good, cheap food. Perfect to wind down for the evening.

  14. Shades of Mary Poppins with that umbrella. I do shop at Costco and that’s an incredible price for those PJs.

  15. I am into anything shrimp dishes lately. I wasn’t able to go out this weekend. Costco shopping is love!

  16. Those Shrimp Tostada Bites look amazing! I’ll have to give that recipe a try.

  17. Lots of cool things here. I really like the t-shirt “When Your Song Comes on”!

  19. The Flamingo Umbrella is cool and I really ned a new one!

  20. The Yoda shirt is sweet and the Mint chocholate chip cookies look amazing and I’m not even a sweets fan really. The collage style topic cover is an interesting take and makes it enjoyable to read.
