How To: Make your own Beer Advent Calendar

*** This post was originally published on Nov 29, 2014. I've given it a little reboot for 2016 since I still make one of these for Kris every year. Also last year he made me one with WINE. So think on that variation! ***

Sometimes the best surprises don't arrive on Christmas Morning. Sometimes they arrive in the daily gifts from your advent calendar in those anticipation filled weeks leading up to the holidays!

Well, just because you're an "adult", doesn't mean that you can't get in on all the fun you had when you were a kid.

Today I'll be showing you how to make your very own Beer Advent Calendar for the beer lover in your life (or yourself, no judgement!) to have a more adult themed countdown to Christmas Day.

Braided Up Do!

This post was sponsored by Irresistible Me! All opinions are mine alone. However only some of the hair in the photos was grown on my head. xxox Laura @ Cook, Wine and Thinker!

This weekend, I got a chance to do something I have always wanted to do but have never been able to pull off.

Guys... I got to put my hair up in an intricate braided up-do.

Pre Made Meals - To Save You Time

I don't know about you, but when I am busy the LAST thing I want to deal with is food.

And I mean, I'm a total foodie, a food blogger... and I STILL don't want to cook when I've had a late day at work, or need to study, or I'm just crazy busy.

Whether you're studying for an exam, over programmed, working late, renovating or just busy with holiday plans, the idea of spending your precious evenings making food, eating and cleaning up the mess probably has you reaching for the phone to order pizza.

Of course, you also don't want to be ordering out every night, or before you know it you'll be packing on the pounds, and feeling kind of gross. Plus your money will vanish, FAST.

Instead of take out, why not set aside a few hours on the weekend and pre make some meals to store in your freezer.

Taking a few hours to pre make meals that you can eat over a week OR TWO can make all the difference. If done right you can have delicious home cooked meals with minimal effort so that you can focus on other things.

Today I want to give you tips and advice on how to pre make your meals to save you time!
