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!
Whaaaat? Cheesy Pepperoni Buns! These yummy treats are only 6 ingredients and take about 20 minutes to prepare. Hello, quick and easy dinner or yummy appetizer!
What else would you top on these buns?
If you were a Saved By the Bell fan (or still are!), listen up! There’s a reboot in the works! So far, Mario Lopez and Elizabeth Berkley are a solid “in” for the reboot, however, the other stars haven’t joined the cast yet. Bummer, right? Not sure how that will really work. It’s supposed to air on NBC’s new streaming platform, “Peacock” in April 2020 (read below in my bitches & moans about that!). So, I (Jeni) am not that excited, and am more disappointed. How can you have Saved By the Bell without Kelly and Zack and Screech and Lisa? Read more HERE.
What do you think about the reboot?
Be on the lookout! This brand new Hersey’s Whopper mashup bar is coming at the end of the month (that’s any day!) and will be exclusively sold at Walmart! mmmmm sounds and looks TASTY! Funny thing is, in 2005, Hershey’s released pretty much an identical product with a different name! 🙂
What’s your favorite chocolate bar?
Here’s a FUN way to change up your fall and Halloween decorations this year: color-changing ceramic pumpkins! There is a haunted house-themed pumpkin (6.5 inches tall) and witch-themed pumpkin (9.5 inches tall). And they look ADORABLE sitting next to each other! They cycle through shades of blue, purple, green and red!
What are your favorite fall or Halloween decorations?
Blue Moon is one of my (Jeni) favorite brands of beer. And now, I love them even more because they just released a new Iced Coffee Blonde Beer!! Here’s the description: “Iced Coffee Blonde’s flavor is a blonde-colored wheat ale with bright coffee aroma and mild malt sweetness for a balanced taste and clean finish.” UHHHH sign me UP!
What’s your favorite brand of beer?
There are advent calendars, but then there’s this… a Nightmare Before Christmas Countdown Clock!! It’s not JUST for Halloween – you can flip the block and keep using it for Christmas! It’s Hot Topic’s way to celebrate the 25th anniversary of the movie. How fun and festive is this!?
If you or someone you know is a Grey’s Anatomy fan…. This McDreamy Candle is a necessity! 🙂 Since he recently died in the show, so this is a fun way to keep him alive! 🙂 The descriptions says it “smells like a fresh Seattle breeze off the ferry boat on a beautiful day to save lives.” Plus, it has over 100 reviews giving it 5 stars!
Are you a Grey’s Anatomy fan?
Try a fun, new adult beverage this week, or save the recipes for parties with friends!
Pear is a seriously underrated fruit for the fall season. It has such a deep, creamy, fresh flavor, so this awesome Sparkling Pear Spritzer is right up my (Jeni) alley! It’s only three ingredients, too!
This is the Jack-O’Blask – Captain Morgan’s lattes release! It’s a pumpkin spice flavored spiced rum… which sounds AMAZING to me (Sarah!). I like little shots – and this one comes in a bottle in the shape of a pumpkin!
What are your favorite seasonal beverages?
What’s Happy Hour without getting all that negativity out of your system? Get it out and let it go!
I (Jeni) am so upset about all of these streaming services coming out. I get it – they all want their own service. But dang… it’s becoming the cable wars all over again! People turned to streaming services because it had everything in one place. Now, we’ll be starting all over with more streaming services coming every few months, it seems!
We have Netflix and Hulu and Amazon… but then Disney wanted in. And now NBC is launching “Peacock” starting in 2020. And Peacock is taking all of those awesome NBC shows from Netflix and Hulu, to put them on their own service. UGH! We’ll all be paying as much as we did with cable, eventually, if we get all of these services. It’s irritating!
I’m really sad because two of my favorite shows, The Office, and Parks & Rec are moving from Netflix to Peacock next year. I rewatch those a couple of times a year, and won’t be getting Peacock, so I guess I need to get the seasons on disc!
Here’s more about the stupid new Peacock service. *crosses arms and pouts*
What streaming services do you use?
So, I (Sarah) love classic Christmas. I’m not begrudging anyone of their flash and flare and adding their own styles. I’m also not complaining that people do it – but this is the “Bitch & Moan” section, and so here, I am free to bitch and moan! 🙂
Black Christmas trees are a new-dish fad, and I don’t like it. I like classic, live, green Christmas trees! I’ve been seeing a lot of these lately and just roll my eyes. If you love them – great! I don’t, so I won’t be getting one, and I’ll be secretly rolling my eyes every time I do see them! haha!!
See a bunch of them HERE.
What new fads have you seen that you don’t like?
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! 🙂
I (Jeni) own this food storage AND mixing bowl set and LOVE LOVE LOVE IT! I paid way more for it, so you guys are getting a great deal! It’s the Pyrex 12-Piece Food Storage Set or 8-Piece Mixing Bowl Set for only $14.99 (regularly $47.99) from Macy’s!
Taco earrings for $20? SOLD!
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!
Have a great rest of your week! See you tomorrow for Morning Coffee!
