Goodbye 2010! Here comes 2011!

Hey friends! Happy New Year's Eve! Goodbye to 2010!! It's been a great year. I had to shoot one last photo of my little family in 2010. It's freezin' butt cold here today so the family was not into this outdoors shot off the back deck. But, looks like Mama got her way..again.
Life is good. :)
I want to thank you all for following my little blog, leaving great comments and being my online friends. You're just peachy! I hope you will join me for another great year of blogging in 2011. I have some great new things coming to the blogaroonie. You've already see that I'll be sharing my Project Life album.

I'll also be sharing my one little word this year via Ali Edwards' inspiration. I've got my word picked out and will share it soon. I've also signed up for Ali's One Little Word workshop so am looking forward to following along with Ali this year.

Of course I'll be adding new items to my Etsy shop soon. Coming up: Valentine goodies and more.

Soooo, any big plans for tonight? Josey's heading out to party that's bound to go down in history. She thinks it will be *epic*. Her new word. The girl has a new word weekly. She could never handle Ali's one little word for a WHOLE year. No way.

The rest of us? Well, Jordy has a friend over tonight. There will be lots of Wii playing going on and Apples to Apples. Eric and the girls went off on their own at Walmart while I was picking up grocery items. I brought home party food. They brought home two new Wii games. Geez Louise, did we not just have Christmas? :) Oh well fun times, right? Then we decided to invite my folks over and they were just tickled. Woohoo!

On the menu: Our Best Bites recipes to the rescue! From this Happy New Year post full of yummy recipes, we're having Little Smokies fixed with the sauce from the Sweet and Sour Meatballs and yummy Caramel Toffee Fruit Dip with apples and grapes. And of course we have to try the BBQ Bacon Sliders that won the Better Homes and Gardens Cook-Off. The Garlicky Blue Cheese Spread is finger lickin' good. Oh yumness! I cheated a little and used packaged crispy fried onions to save some time. For the bacon, I stuck it in the oven to cook. So easy and less grease splatters. Becky Higgins does it all the time. I love her. Everything's ready except for the little slider burgers. Can't wait. My mouth is watering already! My mom's bringing mini cream puffs with fudge sauce. Hell-OhH!

Okay, I better get a movin' peeps. I still have a blog post to write for the Papertrey Senior Team post. It goes live at 11pm my time. We're kicking off a brand new year of great projects!

One last thing.....you got your black eyed peas ready for New Year's Day? I've got my can sitting out. And I know my dad does too. You have to eat them. For good luck all year. You just have to.
Have a fun, FUN night tonight friends! Be safe, stay warm and I'll see ya in the new year!! Party on!

Hi Mish! I do not always comment but I do read your blog every day! I am also making appetizers from Our Best Bites. I am making the bacon wrapped sausages and the warm corn dip! Yum! I am also doing Project Life and One Little WOrd. My word is HOPE. It kept coming up so I figured that is the word I was supposed to use. Have a great New Year!

I am so addicted to Our Best Bites since you linked there during the 12 days of Christmas! How did I not know about that site before? Have you made the cinnamon bun popcorn yet? If not, you must! I took it EVERYWHERE with me over the holiday season and people liked it so much they were begging me NOT to give them the recipe! Happy New Year! - Trish

Happy New Year, Mish! Thanks for keeping us motivated with all your creativity. Oh, Apples to Apples is my family's favorite game. Did you get the new Apples to Apples To Go yet? More cards, hysterical words. Fun times. Hope 2011 is a wonderful year for you and your family!

Mish~ YOU ROCK!! (That said in my best 1980's rock out voice.) Have an EPIC New Year.(That said in my best cool mom voice.) I am looking forward to a new year of inspiration and great ideas from you. No pressure. We could so be neighbors. Of course that is if I didn't live in AK. ;)
Enjoy every minute of your yummy treats and family tonight. XO
