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?

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