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!  

Seriously, this Peanut Butter & Bacon Candy is ridiculous. It’s so smooth and salty and buttery and sweet and and and…. *drool*  It’s unique and a lot of fun to make, too.  Check it out!

These Taco Sliders from Dinner at the Zoo look absolutely magical!  Sliders + appetizers + tacos… YES!! It’s like a taco burger in mini form and we are SO down for them!

What type of appetizer do you order when you go out for happy hour?

Uhhhhhh, yes, please.  PLEASE!  It’s an officially licensed Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom dinosaur pool float!  You would definitely rule the pool floating around in one of these things, right?  It reminds me (Sarah) of the Unicorn Sprinkler!

Do you have any pool floats or summer inflatables?

These BigMouth Stemless Wine Glasses are the best thing EVER!  Aren’t they so much fun and so unique?  My (Jeni) favorite is the love potion number WINE bottle, and the cloud.  I’ll definitely be scooping some of these up for my sister the wine enthusiast…and I might have to get the bottle and cloud just for me 🙂

Do you have special wine glasses that you regularly use?

Ohhhhh yes!  We compiled our favorite taco gifts into one, delicious Taco Gift Guide!  These are awesome products that are all taco themed…perfect for anyone that is a bit too obsessed with the greatest food (besides bacon, of course) on Earth. Is that too dramatic?  Naw….it’s TACOS!!!!

What are your favorite food themed products?

This is SO MUCH FUN!  These are a collection of images that prove angles are everything.  It’s definitely fun to see all 20 of them… because angles really DO mean everything for a photo!

Which one was your favorite?!

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

This drink is RIGHT up my (Sarah) alley!  I LOVE Fireball Whiskey, and I love cinnamon rolls… so it makes sense tout it into one shot, doesn’t it!?  🙂  Check out the awesome video from Delish to see how to make them. Then come over and have some shots with me!

Well, well, well.  Isn’t that drink just MADE for me (Jeni)!?  I am a coffee addict, for sure.  Plus, it’s called “Monkey Coffee,” which is cute and fun! 🙂  It’s just about ALL alcohol, which means I better pace myself, or I will be seeing double quicker than expected. Just kidding 😉

What is your drink of choice during happy hour?

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

Ok.  I’m (Jeni) not a Spring chicken anymore, I know that.  And what is a Spring chicken, anyway?  Every decade, I claim that it’s the “new 20s.”  And every decade, my life seems fuller, richer and more crazy (which suits me just fine).  I just laugh at everything on me that’s falling apart anyway – and I’m PROUD to be in my 40s!  40 is the new 40!!

I’m not worried about getting older.  I’m a Golden Girl at heart, and will always have a free spirit and be a big kid.  But this body…. I’m really hoping that Jell-O butts are sexy, but I don’t really keep up with what’s “in.”  As my sister says, “It looks like I have hail damage back there.” But you can’t take a plunger to pull out the craters on this bumper.  And, tell me you don’t put a bra on and think, “21 year old boobs,” then take it off and think, “meh. 40-something year old boobs.” Stupid gravity.  Curse you!

I don’t mind the crows feet appearing, because that means I’ve laughed and smiled a lot – and I DO.  But when I find floppy skin or cellulite on my WRISTS or my KNEES, I have to admit…I’m getting older.  So, in honor of aging gracefully, here are some of my favorite scenes from the best show about aging! 🙂  * Cheers *

Have you noticed any changes in your body as you age?

This is how I (Sarah) feel every time I have to get eye drops put in. Right now I have a sinus infection that started with an eye infection and I have to use antihistamine eye drops. They burn and hurt for a whole 15 seconds after having them put into my eyes, but you would think by my reaction I was in a torture chamber? I would rather do just about anything, including go to the doctor’s office than have eye drops put in.

Do you or your kids hate taking some type of medicine?


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! 🙂

This river and lake float would be a great place for Happy Hour parties. Just $99.48!

I (Sarah) am loving this “Of course I drink like a fish, I’m a mermaid” t-shirt and it’s just $16.99 in sizes small-3XL. It comes in black, navy, pink, and yellow.

These Silicone Shot Glass Molds are SO COOL!  You can use them for making ice shot glasses, or pour chocolate into them for an extra sweet shot!  Plus, there are lots under 10 bucks!

These Happy Hour Old Factory candles might just be the coolest thing we have seen this week!  These Happy Hour scents are: Bourbon, Black & Tan and Champagne.  SO COOL!  They are now $28.97, down from $40.

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



  1. I can’t say no to anything involving bacon, especially if it’s a sweet like this! I need this in my life!

  2. I can’t stop staring at the bacon candy and taco sliders. They are calling my name and I need them both – now!

  3. This post had me cracking up! I’m in the last year of the 40’s and I guess after November, 50 will be the new 50 lol I will need all these drinks and taco themed items (since I live in Mexico, why not?) My favorite wine glass was the love potion as well. Thank you for your over 40 humor, really made my day.

      HEHEHEHE! So glad I could help put a smile on your face, Kellie!

  4. Are those bacon candies? Sounds like an odd but interesting flavor, I have to try that out. Wonder if it tastes more like bacon or peanut butter.

    • Jeni Hawkins Reply

      It tastes like bacon AND peanut butter – the perfect 50/50 combination!

  5. I WANT those sliders! It is making my mouth water just looking at the picture! I am totally doing that for dinner!! YUM!

  6. I don’t have any special wine glasses any more. I have to look into getting a couple for my collection.

  7. You had me at peanut butter and bacon candy. That sounds amazing! I will have to try to find some.

    • Jeni Hawkins Reply

      It’s seriously amazing … you won’t find this anywhere, it’s my recipe!

  8. Those sliders look amazing! I have got to try those out. Also, that love potion wine glass looks awesome too. I need one of those!

  9. I have some Baileys, but I need to get the rest of the ingredients to make that Monkey Coffee chocolate syrup. It looks delicious! I’ll check out the Taco gift guide because everyone loves tacos!

  10. Peanut Butter Bacon candy? Sign me up! Though, with that attitude, I’m always going to look like the right on the Instagram comparison. Who needs washboard abs anyways?

  11. So much good stuff! I just pinned the taco sliders–they sound incredible! And the peanut butter bacon candy?!? omg!

  12. We have that ice cube tray, we make ice shot glasses for our Jagermeister. We take the shot and slam the ice glasses down on the concrete. It’s fun, if not a bit wasteful. I’m loving the river and lake float. I was looking for something like that for our lake.

  13. Wow, peanut butter and bacon candy is definitely a unique concept. I’ll try anything with bacon on it! LOl

    • Jeni Hawkins Reply

      Thank you! If you try them, please do let me know!

  14. Taco sliders? You’re speaking my language. Those look delicious and a great addition to taco tuesday.

  15. Big taco lover here, so is my family, so definitely bookmarking this for future gifting reference. Cool things featured here!

  16. I’d be drinking that monkey coffee all day long. Looks and sounds delicious!

  17. Pam Wattenbarger Reply

    That monkey coffee sounds really good! I don’t really drink often but that appeals to me.

  18. I should grab that taco gift guide ASAP because we are huge fans of taco over here. 🙂 Have a great weekend to you as well.


    I love your memes LOL!! That dino float would be a big hit in our house!

  20. Lots of fun stuff here, definitely some I have never seen before
