Friday Favorites: November 9

Can you believe there are less than two weeks until Thanksgiving? I’m still trying to mentally prepare for Halloween! I guess I better buy a turkey before I blink and it’s December. Let’ see if I can get my brain around this week’s favorites.Nano favorites

  • I spent last weekend at Time Out for Women. What an amazing recharge! I think the laughing and crying (the good kind) were pretty well balanced.
  • The election is over! No more campaign ads!
  • Another great ANWA meeting.
  • I’ve been Nanoishing along, which means I’m writing regularly but not 2000 words a day. I don’t need to win, I’m just hoping to hit 10%.
  • I had a job interview that I thought went very well. I’ll know if the prospective employer agrees in the next couple of weeks.
  • A great Relief Society dinner. The food was good and the company was even better!

Time’s short these days, but I found a few favorites on some of my favorite blogs.

  • If Thanksgiving is close, that means Christmas is just a couple of days behind (at least it feels that way). Family Chic has a cute and easy Sweater Tree project that has me wondering if I have any sweaters I’m ready to recycle.
  • Now that the decorations are covered, I {Heart} Naptime has a cute jar gift idea.
  • To keep the ideas from being too Christmas heavy, Chef in Training has 30 soup, chili and chowder recipes.

Friday Favorites: November 4

Welcome to November!  I love November in Arizona; our weather cooled down and it feels like Fall, at least Arizona’s version of Fall.  I even wore long pants yesterday!  Here are some of my favorites from this week.

  • My favorite chili won 1st place at the chili cook-off.  They gave me a certificate and a cute Thanksgiving apron as a prize!
  • I figured out a couple things I’ve been struggling with or WordPress, thanks to WordPressTV.
  • Writing on the Wall is hosting a Write-a-thon tonight in honor of NaNoWriMo!

Enough about me, check out these pockets of coolness in the blogworld.

  • Make a bow to decorate a gift and recycle grocery bags at the same time!  I {heart} Naptime shows you how.
  • Chocolate on my Cranium shares a great story of friendship!
  • I’m feeling a little pudgy (but isn’t it nice my kiddos share their Halloween candy), so I wasn’t going to include any food links this week.  Chef Tess broke my resolve with her Raspberry Chocolate Sour Cream Pie.

Share your favorites from the week, personal or an interesting post!
