Default Forgot to refrigerate yeast

I went to my LHBS yesterday, and bought all my ingredients. But I completely forgot to put my hop pellets and yeast "smack pack" in the refrigerator. I plan on brewing today. Should I go back out and buy new hops and yeast, or am I okay to use them?

I've done that before with no issues. I think you'll be fine...

Use them you want to keep your yeast out of the fridge before brewing anyways to help wake them up. Your good.

smack it and if it inflates you are OK. Plan on brewing.
