Mixy It Up: Thanksgiving Edition!

Hey Gals!  Only 3 more days until Thanksgiving and it wouldn't be a holiday at the M family table if there wasn't a mixy playing in the background!  This year I'm headed to my parents house and with me I'll be bringing the perfect Thanksgiving playlist to accompany the whole day's festivities.

  I encourage everyone to be prepared with a mixy of your own, since most hosts will be too concerned with the menu and won't give the music selection a second thought (well, unless the Gals are hosting, of course!).  Here are my top picks that will take you from the parade all the way to that last piece of pumpkin pie (or in my case, pumpkin pie martini!)  And don't be afraid to sprinkle in a couple of your favorite Christmas songs to get everyone in the holiday spirit since Friday marks the official start of the season!

  1. Love it, M! I approve of the generous sprinkling of MB for sure! And yes, Thanksgiving is when you'll first hear a few Christmas tunes in the mix around our house :)

    1. Thanks! I couldn't help but indulge in lots of Buble, but he really is the perfect accompaniment to the holiday! And I'm glad you're also a fan of sprinkling in some Christmas music - obviously Buble's Christmas album will be in heavy rotation throughout the day!


Thanks for visiting The Sequin Notebook! We LOVE hearing from you :)
