Hi there, Tiago. 
The sentence "I am happiest when I am with my friends." could be used in a certain metaphorical way - to my thinking, of course - in such case it would convey emphasis. 
And metaphorically, it would mean "I am the happiest guy/person" (compared with others moments in the day, for instance), but it could raise some eyebrows with grammar-oriented people. 
So, colloquially, almost everything goes, then it can be accepted sometimes. I just had to point out that there are academic or more formal ways, or more usual ways.
Others may think different, so let´s wait them to share their views on the matter.
