Happy Hour Time

Welcome to Friday the thirteenth Happy Hour Time! Hopefully everyone is having a fabulous freaky Friday! I can’t believe how fast this week has gone by, it feels like just yesterday was Monday, where does the time go! I have to share the highlight of my week: Pamela Keogh, a New York Times bestselling author, sent me a personal email regarding a post {Pamela Keogh Books Click Here} I wrote on some of her books! I have to say I was beyond thrilled to see I received an email from such a wonderful author! Moving on with Happy Hour here is the drink special for this Friday!

    1. I am happy it is Friday also! Hope you have a great weekend!

  3. So glad it's Friday, it's definitely time for an adult beverage! Cheers, have a fabulous weekend!

    1. Yes, Friday always merits an adult beverage in my opinion! Hope you have a wonderful weekend!

  4. I LOVE Happy Hour. I am currently counting down the hour and a half remaining. WHERE is that carousel? I have a LOVE for any and all carousels.

  5. That last 30 mins is always the hardest! I'm not sure where that carousel is located...I find that image on google. I was tired of my old set of Happy Hour pictures & just knew I wanted a pink carousel for the around town part so I just googled for it. Hope you have a wonderful weekend!

  6. Unfortunately, I don't go to school at a place that has a classy happy hour around. Inner city school problems! However, looking at your blog is enough to whisk me away to tropical beverage paradise! I hope the start to your weekend is perfectly fabulous!

    1. I hope you have a perfectly fabulous weekend too! Happy Friday!

  7. Cool blog! I would love to follow eachother!
