Image

Raspberry-Mojito-Recipe-1
Chelsea chose Raspberry Mojito Recipe from Hairsprays & High Heels. “Mojitos are my drink of choice, and it’s so refreshing to see something that’s not cranberry or peppermint!

christmas-wood-veneer-tags
Rhonda chose Wrapping Up your Christmas Baking Gifts from Fynes Designs. “I love making baked and home made gifts for Christmas. I just made a huge batch of Christmas Crunch and love the idea of using jars with ribbons in my gift baskets versus the cellophane bags. Nice touch.”

Your daughter’s friend not only recognized that this is an issue but she did something about it – she spoke up! I have seen this happen many times, and yes, the boy is a complete idiot but sometimes the girls fall for it believing that the only way for him to like her is to have sex with him. It is so sad! And that’s why I’m so incredibly proud of your daughter’s friend for not dealing with it or believing it is acceptable.”

Here are the Featured posts from last week!

Kitchen-Basics-101-How-to-carve-a-turkey-1024x1024
Cindy chose Kitchen Basics 101: How to Carve a Turkey from Robyn’s View. “My father always carves the turkey at Thanksgiving and Christmas. As much as I hate to admit it, he is getting up there in age. Someone else in the family needs to master this skill. Recently I brought home a rotisserie chicken for dinner and I asked hubby to carve it up and he had no idea how to do it! We hacked away at it but it sure wasn’t pretty. This post gives great instructions on how to accomplish carving a turkey.”
Infused-Water-1024x748
Jillian chose Infused Water from Robyn’s View. “I have always been a fan of water, but nothing tastes better than when you add some fruit and spice it up. It makes it more exciting and means I’m more likely to grab and gulp!”
Real-Brothers-300x200
Meghan chose The Target Effect – Adoption Tales from the Checkout Line from Ripped Jeans & Bifocals. “This is hilarious and sad at the same time. I have not adopted though I have always thought about it. But I would never think to ask someone randomly about their adopted kids. I have the upmost respect for her and everyone else who adopts. People ask the dumbest, and sometimes hurtful, things. Even if you haven’t adopted, you can still relate to dumb questions that you have received while pregnant or after your baby is born … and well in to their life. There are plenty of times I just want to turn around and sock someone.”
FFflowers6
Damjana chose Color Changing Oxeye Daisies from Frogs and Fairies. “Did you know you can even dye daisies!? In real life, not just on a computer screen, using some fancy web design app!!! It was a blast for me when I saw it and I believe you’ll all want to try it out! A wonderful and fresh idea, especially for those of us who’d love a splash of fresh colors. Especially in combination with flowers!”
Tiffany also chose this post. “I picked this post because as soon as I started reading it I went back to the days before my Husbands first deployment and how he treasured every day he could have with our children. Now that he is back we still take the time to have time that is just for him. It is truly so important.”
IMG_9976
Yolanda chose The Importance of Daddy Time from Winks and Eyerolls. “The reason that I picked this is because fatherhood often doesn’t get the amount of attention that it deserves. I also have an amazing husband who is hands on with our son. It is an amazing, and important relationship that exists between a father and their child.”
Butterfinger-Fudge-6
Mari chose Butterfinger Fudge from Gal on a Mission. ” I loved the fact that Chelsea used just 4 ingredients to make this amazing treat. Less was more for sure.”
Silvie also chose this post. “I chose the Butterfinger Fudge Recipe because I like recipes that have simple ingredients and taste yummy. After making this recipe I was amazed at how delicious this fudge comes out!”
Pumpkin-Spice-Bundt-Cake-01
Amy chose Pumpkin Spice Bundt Cake Recipe from The Painted Hinge.  “I’m still in Fall mode and this Pumpkin cake may just be my new seasonal favorite. It’s easy to make, has just a few ingredients, and looks delicious!”
BloggingAsAProfssion-01
Stacey chose NaBloPoMo | Blogging As A Profession from New Mama Diaries. “Tenns offered some amazing points to go by for making a professional and well designed site. Thank you so much for sharing!”
Rustic-Log-Holiday-Card-Display-768x1024
Tina chose Rustic Log Holiday Card Display from Anything & Everything. “Absolutely beautiful!! I love Christmas Craft Tutorials! A fabulous rustic feel and a great way to display your Christmas Cards!!! Simple but beautiful. I love Christmas!! Thanks for sharing!”
Thanksgiving-Turkey-Rice-Krispie-Treats
Rhonda chose Turkey Rice Krispie Treats | Fun Thanksgiving Dessert! from Moms Need To Know. “I always make a Thanksgiving treat for the kids, as none of them are partial to pumpkin or sweet potato pie. These are adorable, and will add a festive touch to the Thanksgiving table.”
quirky-1024x1024
Serena chose 5 Quirky Things… When I don’t know what to write. from Clay Clan Cultivates. “I like it because I feel like this sometimes. I also like it because it will probably not be funny to a non blogger, even though it will be hilarious to a blogger so it’s almost like an inside joke. It’s brilliant! I hate selfies, too…”
Butternut-Squash-Pear-Brown-Rice-Chicken-Soup-Chopped-2-919x1024
Angie chose Butternut Squash, Pear, Brown Rice, Chicken Soup Chopped from The Kitchen Chopper. “I liked it just because it looked delicious & was a unique combination of ingredients.”
PrintableThankYouNotes-580x828
slowcooker
Stasia chose 77 Quick Throw-Together Slow Cooker Meals from Little House Living. “LIfe is very busy (as with most) and I am always looking for quick and easy slow cooker meals. Something I can throw in in the morning before work and is ready by the time everyone gets home. It takes stress off of our lives!”
5-Signs-That-You-Have-A-Threenager
Natasha chose 5 Signs That You Have A Threenager! from Domain of the Mad Mommy. “Love. This. Post. Because I taught I had it so horrible when my son was 2, but now that he’s 3 and losing his mind on a daily occasion, I’m realizing how great 2 really was! The arguments are endless, the fights are senseless, and the tantrums are fruitless – still he continues and still I won’t break! I surely have a threenager!”
How-To-Support-Community
The post with the most clicks is How To Support Your [Blogging] Community #NaBloPoMo from MrsTeeLoveLifeLaughter.
