NEW NESTLÉ® DRUMSTICK® Peppermint Cones, Entertaining Kids and Adults During the Holidays and You Can #Win a NESTLÉ® Prize Basket! #HolidayMadeSimple #CollectiveBias

Disclosure: This shop has been compensated by Collective Bias, Inc. and its advertiser. All opinions are mine alone. #HolidayMadeSimple #CollectiveBias

An entertaining party for adults during the holidays is pretty simple to pull off. Just set out some hors d’oeuvres, a few bottles of wine and they are good to go, but I always like to add an element of surprise or something new at our holiday parties. Last year it was jalapeno dip that I am now required to make for every holiday party, and this year it’s new NESTLÉ® DRUMSTICK® Peppermint Cones. My daughters are happy running around my parents’ house in continuous circles with their cousins and ripping open presents, only to end up using the boxes as forts, but when it comes to food, you won’t catch them picking from the plate of sushi or the corned beef and cream cheese wrapped green onions and believe it or not, they get sick of the same plate of cookies every year.

There are so many great choices for gifts at Best Buy as you have seen from the plethora of ideas I’ve posted about in the past few weeks. I can’t believe how many options there are for cameras. When I did my camera shopping, I was partial to Nikon, and still am very much in love with my Nikon DSLR. I’m so looking forward to purchasing new lenses and a speedlight soon from Best Buy. If you aren’t into the professional cameras, there are some other great choices, like the Sony a6000 and the Samsung Galaxy Camera 2. These cameras all have some sweet bells and whistles that you can learn more about below.

These three cameras all come equipped with built-in Wi-Fi so you can share photos easily. This is one thing my current camera is missing that would be incredibly convenient for my budding photography business.

Best Buy Holiday Gifts for the Gamer, Traveler and Music Lover @BestBuy #HintingSeason

I don’t know about you, but I feel like 2014 has been a great year for gifts, especially for the gamer, traveler and music freak. With all of the new technology out this year, you are bound to find a great gift for someone who is typically difficult to buy for. As I get older, I find it more difficult to make a Christmas list (yes, my mom still asks for a list every year) and when I walk into a Best Buy store, my list is immediately pretty long. I’m not much of a gamer, but my husband loves his Madden and NBA2K15, which can be found at Best Buy for the new Xbox One. He also loves having a GPS. I am more of a “free spirit” when it comes to traveling and haven’t gone past the days of printing out driving directions off of Yahoo. However, I love music, so JBL products are perfect for me when I feel like I need to escape. Find out more about these great products at Best Buy below!

Growing up, sloppy joes were a staple during a busy week full of basketball, dance and brand practices and especially on nights my mom worked and my dad was taking care of us. Check out this recipe below to add a little flair to your sloppy joes but still keep them super simple to make!

Italian Style Sloppy Joes
Serves: 6
Prep Time: 10 minutes

1 pound ground beef
1 medium onion, chopped (about 1/2 cup)

6 Pepperidge Farm® Farmhouse™ Premium White Rolls with Sesame Seeds, split and toasted

Directions:
1. Cook the beef and onion in a 10-inch skillet over medium-high heat until the beef is well browned, stirring often to separate meat. Pour off any fat.

Go Ape! Treetop Adventure Course Gift Certificates Make a Great Gift This Christmas! Win 2 $25 Certificates! {Open to U.S.} #LiveAdventurously

goape

Disclosure: I received Go Ape tickets for promoting and providing this giveaway to my readers. Participating bloggers are not responsible for prize fulfillment.

One of my favorite parts of my honeymoon was zip lining through the Smoky Mountains. I wouldn’t say I am the most risk-taking adventurous person, but I do love a good thrill every once in awhile and that was pretty satisfying, I must say! Go Ape Treetop Adventure Courses add another element of fun in addition to zip lines. You can take your spouse, a group of friends or your entire family and swing through trees, zip line and go through obstacles. For 2-3 hours you can explore the park from an otherwise unobtainable vantage point while you navigate through the obstacle course.

Get your adrenaline pumping and jump out of your comfort zone for awhile! A Go Ape gift certificate is the perfect gift and/or stocking stuffer for the outdoorsy and the next great activity for your corporate group. Go Ape courses are located around the US in Missouri, Indiana, Virginia, Delaware, Ohio, South Carolina, Pennsylvania and Maryland. I can’t wait to visit the Indianapolis park next Spring and enjoy a new, fun activity with my husband. Participants are equipped with harnesses, pulleys and carabiners, as well as a 30 minute safety training session before they are let loose into the forest canopy. Instructors are always on hand and patrolling to make sure everyone stays safe.

Canon Holiday Image

One of my favorite all-time gifts last Christmas was my DSLR camera. There are so many things to learn about a camera, and mine has helped me tremendously with photos on this blog, as well as starting a side photography business and capturing some wonderful family memories. The holidays are a great time to take some perfect photos for the scrapbooks and photo albums because it’s a rare occasion when all of our family is together. We all lead very busy lives with jobs, kids, and in different cities and states so I look forward to the few times we get to spend together each year.

Best Buy is the ultimate destination for the latest cameras to capture these priceless memories. I am getting ready to purchase some new lenses for mine from Best Buy! The Canon EOS Rebel T5i is one of the best-selling DSLRs and it takes great, high quality photos. This camera makes advanced photography easy and fun with a user-friendly interface while producing exceptional image quality for those large canvases you want to plaster around your home. The T5i includes a ton of great features to enhance your creativity. Some of these features include:
