Tuesday Tunes: Holiday Party Playlist

This weekend is our aforementioned holiday party and I am getting so excited as each little project and detail begins to fall into place.  This really is one of my favorite parties to throw each year because it gets me in the holiday frame of mind. The house is decked out, our friends come decked out, and we get to share some bubbly and laughs with our favorite people.

Every great party needs a great playlist and a holiday party is no exception. I think the real trick with holiday party music is finding a good mix of standard classics and throwing in some curve balls and refreshed takes on the songs we’ve heard a million times.  You’ve also got to know when to take the party up, and when to slow things down…this is something I’m still figuring out, but we always seem to have a good time so maybe it’s not so much an art as it is luck.

With all that said, the order of this might not be perfect, but I think this little 12-song playlist will give you some ideas as to how to breathe some new life into what can be a rather stale song selection.  Do you have any good holiday music you think I should include?

Tuesday Tunes: Election Day 2012 Edition

Vote 2012

Not to beat a dead horse, but GO VOTE if you haven’t already! It doesn’t matter who you vote for, just go make your voice heard! WE are the government…WE are in control! Don’t take for granted the incredible privilege of living in a country where you can have a voice.

So as you head to the polls, or stand in line waiting for your turn to cast your ballot, I thought you might like a few songs to get you amped up and excited about your RIGHT TO VOTE!!!  A couple of these were suggestions from others, a couple are my own choices, and there are surely countless more I would’ve included but missed.  Any you think should be added?


Do you have any election night plans? I wish we were having a watch party, like we did back in college. Either way I’ll definitely be coloring in my map as the states come in. Man, there’s something about Election Day that just gets me excited about what a wonderful country we live in. Cheers to you, America!
