Funtastic Friday #157

Did you get all your mailing done?  
All the out of town packages are sent. Check.
Now just Christmas cards, wrapping in town presents and menu planning. 
Sarah's Cranberry Salsa is going to be part of our Christmas Eve appetizers. Yum!

Cranberry Salsa recipe---so easy and so UNIQUE!

I'm sitting down to wrap tomorrow (hopefully) and will be using simple
white, black and green tags and ribbon this year.
We've made these tags a printable so you can make your own too!



Really loving those colors and that plaid ribbon!
Now on to this week's link party!

Black & White Christmas Tags


I'm really loving the clean look of black and white this Christmas.
Mixed with a hint of green too.


I made a couple simple tags with that black, white and hint of green combo.
Merry Christmas and December 25.
You can make your own too.

Funtastic Friday #156

We're getting into the Christmas spirit!
Decorating, cookie exchanges and it even snowed today!
Next on our list is to get the tree.
We have always gotten a real tree,
even though I've been leaning towards artificial pre-lit.
This year the vote was to still go with the real thing.
What are your thoughts? Real or artificial?

How to flock a Christmas tree with a can of ceiling texture

Lindsey has got her tree up.
I loved her idea to inexpensively flock a tree with ceiling texture.
Genius move.

We've got a few more decorating ideas.


How about a white Christmas mantle.
Simple Nordic style.
How are you decorating?

Check out this week's party for more Christmas ideas!

Funstastic Friday #155

My daughter just went to a cookie exchange.
The season of sweet holiday treats has begun!
One of our favorites is fudge.
We actually save fudge making for Valentines day around here,
so Erin's fudge is a recipe to add to our collection of fudge flavors for February.
But we might just have to make a batch now to sample ;)

Are you a fudge lover? This delicious 5-ingredient Maple Pecan Fudge recipe will be right up your alley! Loaded with rich maple flavor and tender, brown sugar pecans, this maple fudge recipe is perfect for holiday candy making!
Are you wrapping and mailing presents yet?
I need to get things rolling.

We have our cute Christmas tags & wrapping ideas from last year.


These tags are printable! so you can make your own.
And stay tuned next week for how we're wrapping things up this year!

Now on to party #155!
We're looking for a few more bloggers to help us host Funtastic Friday. If you're interested, get in touch with me or one of the other hosts.

Funtastic Friday #153

Welcome to another week of Funtastic Friday!
Happy Thanksgiving--
are you ready?

These Smashed Sweet Potatoes are the perfect side dish for any occasion.  The sweet potatoes are roasted with cinnamon, a bit of chili powder and topped with toasted maple pecans!

These Smashed Sweet Potatoes just might be the right twist as a yam alternative to our dinner.
We've got all our kids and grandpa coming in town
and can't wait!
After the big dinner, friends are coming over for pie.
We'll be using our  leftover pie container to send some home,
if we have any left over :)



We're getting excited for Christmas too!
We'll start decorating the weekend after Thanksgiving.



First to go out is our JOY board.
Check back in the upcoming weeks for more holiday d├ęcor, crafts and party ideas!

Now on to Funtastic Friday!

Funtastic Friday #152

Welcome back to the best link party on the web!
I love apple desserts in the Fall.
The smell of apples and all their deliciousness. :)
 Stephanie shares this fun recipe for Easy Apple Pie Bites over at Lolly Jane.

Mini Apple Pies recipe, so good! Perfect fall dessert recipe, yum!

Looks delish!
And what a great idea to use half the apple to hold your filling and crust.
I've got to try these!

I'm starting to plan out Thanksgiving dinner.
 Which means PIE.
What pies to make this year?


Our own Apple Pie recipe will be part of the pie line up.

Texas Pecan Pie too!



Got to decide on a couple others.
What is your favorite pie?
