Happy New Year’s Eve, everyone! Congrats on the end of 2017 and a celebration to the new projects and challenges to come! I have recently written a blog about my 2018 goals, if you haven’t checked it out yet I would catch it here: 2018 New Year’s Goals
We are staying in on the home front tonight to ring in the New Year with the kids, and I couldn’t imagine myself anywhere else. I feel really blessed and have had a great, productive year, so my thanks to myself for all my hard work is to kick it at home, relax and chill with my family, surrounding myself with some extra yummy Whole30 treats!
We kept our Christmas lights up but removed the Merry Christmas wreath on the front door to stay festive all day. We may head out for a park trip with the kids but want to keep them on all day to let people know we are cool NYE folks. Even though we are old and not that cool. 😉
I wanted to share a few PARTY TIME non-alcoholic drink ideas as we ring in the New Year tonight! For all these drinks you will need to take a trip to the grocery store and buy the following:
- 2 packs of Organic Blueberries
- 12 pack of La Croix Cran Rasberry
- 2 bottles of Seltzer
- 2 organic Organic Limes
- 2 organic Organic Lemons
- 1 pack of Organic Strawbeeries
- 1 pack of Organic Raspberries
You can mix and match the seltzer and sparkling water with different combos of fruits, slam that in your fanciest party glass and get to drinking.
As for PARTY TIME Apps, I would suggest a few recipes below:
- Bacon Wrapped Scallops
- Cashew Cheese Stuffed Bacon Dates
- Italian Sausage and Cauliflower Stuffed Peppers
- Rosemary and Sea Salt Sweet Potato Chips
- Roasted Cauliflower Hummus
- Sweet Potato Bun Sliders
- Asian Lettuce Wraps
- Hot Chicken Wings
- BBQ Meatballs
- Crudite Platter
We plan on grabbing New Year’s Eve hats and horns, maybe even some confetti if I am feeling really ambitious and I know I will be the one picking it up!
I heard Andy Cohen and Anderson Cooper are co-hosting the Annual New Year’s Eve tonight on CNN, People.com wrote an article about it and it looks like it could be funny. I really loved the Kathy Griffin and Anderson Cooper New Year’s Eve that was hosted last year, she is hilarious. Hoping that this year will be just as funny if not funnier!
I was thinking about dressing us all up in New Year’s Eve gear, but I think by the end of the day I will be too tired to be motivated to get all dressed up. We will see!
Wishing you and yours a very HEALTHY, and HAPPY NEW YEAR! What are your plans tonight? Doing anything fun?
