Holiday Playlist on the hippest stereo in town

This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Tivoli Audio for IZEA. All opinions are 100% mine.

My dad was in band when I was younger. He is a very talented bass guitarist and also knows how to play the drums quite well. My little brother is the only other person who is musically inclined. He also was in a band throughout much of his time in college. We had a room in our unfinished basement that housed a full drum set—and many afternoons I came home from school to drums and jam sessions in our basement. My little brother was basically self taught with some help from my dad–he performed at my cousins wedding when he was just 4 years old. He also performed at my wedding as a 5th grader….along with my dad. When you have family members who are musical…you get pretty used to having music on in your house….so when my friends at Tivoli Model One asked me to try out one of their uber sylish bluetooth stereos—I knew right where I would put it….the kitchen! This is thee coolest radio I have seen….check it out…What a perfect gift for the whole family:)

Beer Bread Gift in a Jar

So….dang it’s hard to get out of pj’s after you’ve been in them for 5 days am I right?!?! Goodness we had a fabulously lazy Thanksgiving weekend. I love it when nothing is on the calendar and we can just chill….and chill we did. We decorated and baked and watched movies (A Gift Wrapped Christmas on Lifetime is a front runner right now for the sappiest and cutest Holiday movie…but of course time will tell..) Ahhhh….it was so much fun. Back to reality…sort of…hubs and I leave for the beach on Wednesday for a little R&R….excited to see the beach:)

You know I am a sucker for a good party favor….I have done several in the past. I like to switch it up a bit:) Found this easy recipe for beer bread and some cool local brew bottles….a crowd pleaser too with the men and ladies;) These would make great neighbor gifts too…for not much cash:) I even did all the hard work for you and made you a printable to print out and attach:) I’m so nice….

If I don’t talk to you again….have a blessed and cozy Thanksgiving:) I sure am thankful that you stop by here to see me every week.

Do you remember when you were younger and you had hours to just play with your hair in front of the mirror? It was kind of fun to think up of a different hairstyle and wear it like that for a few days. With the holidays approaching I thought that you might want a new hair style for some of your holiday parties & gatherings. If you are in a rut and have been wearing your hair the same way forever this might be a fun little challenge for you to try out for the holidays. I preface this….please be kind….A beauty blogger I am NOT!! soft curls @cleverlyinspired

A few of you were asking how I did my hair for our family pictures so I made a quick 4 minutes hair tutorial video so that I could show you how I do it.
