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!
Let’s kick off our time together with these yummy Jalapeño Popper Pockets! YUUUM! These are only 6 ingredients, which makes them even more appetizing. Simple, delicious and totally unique. We’re down for these!
What are your favorite ingredients in pockets?
How fun are these!? Brand new Barbie line – it’s the Star Wars x Barbie! There are three fashion dolls in it, each inspired by Star Wars: A New Hope. There’s the Barbie x Darth Vader, Barbie x Princess Leia, and Barbie x R2-D2. They will be available for shipping in November, but you can preorder now for $100 each.
Which Star Wars character do you think would be a cool addition to this collection?
This is not a joke… September 23rd, SPAM is taking that years-long joke about Pumpkin Spice SPAM, and making it a reality! You’ll be able to get it online at Walmart.com or SPAM.com – but quantities are limited, so if you really want it – get to the site fast!
How would you use Pumpkin Spice SPAM?
I (Sarah) just about fell over from oohing and awwing over these adorable pictures. This photography company, But Natural Photography, created this romantic photo shoot for elderly couples. And I just melted, because not only are the pictures beautiful… but can you say #relationshipgoals? See more HERE!
What relationship goals do you have with your partner?
If you’re a Cookie Monster fan, you’ll really love this! Hasbro is making the largest Sesame Street doll EVER. It’s a life-size (on the show) replica of Cookie Monster! He’s posable and even has google eyes. He’s 38 x 20 x 19 inches standing, and he even has a hinged mouth. They are crowdfunding it through August 25th and hoping to presell 3,000 of them for $300 each. PHEW! See more HERE.
What is your favorite Sesame Street character?

For all of our fellow Golden Girls fans – you cannot pass up on this BRAND NEW ‘Twas The Night Before Christmas Golden Girls book! It’s $12.99, and a smaller book that you can put on your coffee table during the holidays, or gift to someone! I (Jeni) LOVE mine that I grabbed last year! 🙂
Which Golden Girl are you?
Ohhhh man. Dunkin Donuts is really kicking it up a notch! Did you know they sell lip balm? Donut-flavored lip balm! It’s in-store, but not every store has the latest Dunkin Munchkins, so you have to go to eBay for those. They are SO cute and look yummy! PLUS, they are releasing a Pumpkin Munchkins Lip Balm and oh man, it’s cute!
What’s your favorite type of donut?
Try a fun, new adult beverage this week, or save the recipes for parties with friends!
This Blue Crush Margarita is right up my (Jeni) ally! I love Blue Curacao, and triple sec together! Plus, it sounds super refreshing and perfect for the summer, doesn’t it? Look at it – couldn’t you dive into that!? 🙂
I (Sarah) love mojitos, but I’ve never had one that was flavored like this, OR frozen! This Frozen Strawberry Mojito has my name all over it. Plus, it looks SUPER easy to make, and I already have the ingredients right here at home!
What’s your favorite flavor margarita or mojito?
What’s Happy Hour without getting all that negativity out of your system? Get it out and let it go!
I (Jeni) swear. The bugs. The BUGS here in Texas!! My tiki torches are great, but dang – it’s HOT outside – like 100+ degree heat index at 9pm, so lighting a fire on my patio (or “lanai” as a true Golden Girl calls it) isn’t really comfortable.
This DynaTrap thing lures them in with a weird, blue light, then sucks them down into a tray at the bottom. And they can’t get out. I’m not a cruel person – but I’m taunting the mosquitos. I see them and yell, “go toward the light!” And when they get trapped, I’m looking deviantly at them through the grates, calmly saying, “just let it happen, little guy. Just let it happen.” Man, I can’t wait for summer to be over with here!
Do you have bug issues where you live?
This right here is my (Sarah) former favorite brand of facial tissues Great Value from Walmart. Do you see the little orange balloon in the upper left hand corner that says “NEW LOOK”? Well I hate that little orange balloon. That means that the company has changed a product. It doesn’t matter what color the balloon is, the company made some changes.
And now I’m allergic to my former favorite product and have to find an alternative. And Great Value isn’t the only company that does this, nearly EVERY company on the planet does it, all the time. Why can’t they leave stuff alone? I hate it when they change products I love.
Has a product that you love ever changed for the worst?
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! 🙂
These are too funny! Score a Lion Head Pet Costume for just $9.99 + free shipping for your little pup or cat!
Grab this 12-pack of sugar cereal and Nestle candy bar lip balms for only $13.98! How FUN (and delicious)!
This Coral Coast Kona Tabletop Fire Bowl is wicked cool, isn’t it? It’s only $36.18 when you use the code LABORDAY at checkout!!
Have a great rest of your week! See you tomorrow for Morning Coffee!
