Funtastic Friday Link Party 159 and Festive Food

 Funtastic-Friday-Poster 600

 How was your Christmas?  We had food, family, and fun!  Now, onto New Year's and 2018!  Do you make New Year's Resolutions?  I kinda, sorta do lol.  I will be finishing up my Master's degree by April so need to start looking for a faculty or Wellness RN position.  Ali Rose will be graduating from high school and starting college. Oh, but before any of that, Staci will bring a new little girl into our family--soon!  I guess those aren't really resolutions--most likely going to happen one way or another.

Funtastic Friday 159 Link PartyWe're looking for bloggers to help host the Funtastic Friday link party. If you're interested, get in touch with me or one of the other party hosts. 

I wanted to share a few recipes from last week's party that might be nice to try for your New Year's celebration:

Creamy Apple Mock-tini by Playdates to Parties.

The creamy apple mock-tini #recipe is the perfect easy green mocktail for #kids during the #holiday season. Kids love that this drink is full of surprising flavors, but would you drink it?

 Cooking on the Front Burners  shared a White Chocolate and Peppermint Popcorn recipe. 


Our very own Easy Peasy Pleasy shares a recipe for Sweet Chicken Bacon Wraps--yum!   

 Ali Rose from Two Chicks and a Mom shared a Orange Julius recipe sure to please!

Cajun Shrimp Dip by Cooking with Carlee.


 Now onto our link party!
