Here is a quick note from me hoping that everyone had as good of a Thanksgiving as we did! There was so much food that I am still eating leftovers. Last night I had to take a break from them and have some spaghetti. Things have been pretty quiet on the blog and Facebook but don’t worry I am still alive and going. I just haven’t been on any social media or blogs for the last week. We have been taking some necessary time off. It’s going to be back to it soon though! I have finals next week and then I will be on here full force. You won’t be able to get rid of me. With all that being said. Here is Turn it up Tuesday!!

Here are the Featured posts from last week!
Mari chose Dresser To Kitchen Island – Cart #DIY With #ChalkyFinish Paint Colors from Dear Creatives. “I chose DC’s redo because I absolutely love taking something old and making it into something new again. I loved how the dresser turned out I think it looks amazing!”
Angie chose Pretzel Snowmen from Save More Spend Less with Heidi. “How cute is this!!? So easy to make & oh so delicious too! Maybe we could even add a gummy worm as a scarf? (that might be taking it too far – they are perfect as is)”
Jillian chose Free Christmas Shopping Printable from The Organized Dream. “I chose this post bc I love lists!! And keeping organized during the holidays is very time consuming. This list will help me keep organized, and I hope it helps others!”
Chelsea chose Pumpkin Pie in a Jar from Little House Living. “I love how these pies were made in a jar. Call me crazy, but the crust is my LEAST favorite part of a pie, so knowing that these confections had less flaky and more filling, I was a happy woman. And plus, it just looks yummy in general! Yay for holiday sweets!”
Damjana chose Mini Apple Cranberry Popovers from Three Kids and a Fish. “These popovers are just perfect for this time of the year. A treat this warm, sweet, tart and fluffy makes a person want more of it – especially when served with that yummy cranberries fill!”
Serena chose Five Things I Did For My Students That Today’s Teacher’s Wouldn’t Do from LadyBlogger. “Our kids will always need teachers like this. Perhaps some teachers have lost their spark because of the way the system has changed or for whatever reason. I’m glad to see there are still teachers out there that are willing to go above and beyond for their students.”
Tenns chose 20-Something Scriptures Every 20-Something Should Know from Mommie and Wee. “I’m always on the search for more spiritual encouragement. This great list of scriptures is just what I need to add to my spiritual appetite. I like that its geared to those in their twenties, because I as I approach my thirties I have these scriptures to look to for strength, encouragement, and motivation.”
Stacey chose New To Homeschooling from The Multi Tasking’ Mom. “I completely understand this post and still feel somewhat unsure, even though we are into our third year of homeschooling. I will likely always feel a bit of unsure, but I will continue to plug along, because I do feel it is the best for my kids. Thank you so much for sharing!”
Tina chose DIY Waterless Snow Globes from Pioneer Mama. “Another wonderful Christmas creation!! Detailed instructions – fantastic result, my type of craft!! I love these waterless snow globes and I’m making some this Christmas. Thanks so much for sharing.”
Amy chose Homemade Monogrammed Gift Tags from The Organized Dream. “I love these Homemade Monogrammed Gift Tags from he Organized Dream! I love adding an extra touch to my gifts to personalize them and make the recipient feel special. These gift tags are easy to make, look great, and can be re-purposed as ornaments to be used again each year.”
Natasha chose Single Serve Hot Chocolate Mix from With A Blast. “I’ve been looking for a nice simple gift to give to my son’s teachers for the holidays. I think this might be it! Thanks for the idea and the simple instructions!”
The post with the most clicks is The Day Our Strawberry Broke The Internet from Barbie Bieber and Beyond.
