Dare to Share #137

It is once again Friday night, which means.. 
It is time to Dare to Share! 

How was your week?  Ours was pretty eventful.  My planned week of baking and crafting got a bit side tracked. I think it was worth it though,  it was all because of this little girl... 

She has turned our lives upside down this week.  We found her last weekend.  On Tuesday she became really sick. We are still not sure why.  We gave her some extra fluids and love, and by Thursday morning, she was feeling like herself again.  You can read the entire story about Our Kitty Dilemma on my other blog Surviving the Crazy Life.  

In other exciting news,  Kara and I have signed on to do a Christmas craft show in a few weeks.  I used to do a lot of craft shows before I had kids. I am pretty excited that I can now do one with my kids.  I love that my kids are crafty just like their mom. :)  I will be adding the crafts we will be selling at the show, on my blog shop over the next  couple of weeks.  I am updating it this weekend with more Thanksgiving and Christmas items. 

I have been beginning to think about the Thanksgiving meal.  This week I tried making mashed potatoes in the slow cooker.  My kids loved it, and we will definitely but making them this way again.  You can see the recipe on my post Easy Slow Cooker Mashed Potatoes.

I was recently asked by Hometalk to curate a Thanksgiving Table Setting board because they really like my Turkey Napkin Rings. You can read more about the board on my post 14 Thanksgiving Table Setting Ideas.

I want to try both of the Dare Share Features of the Day this week.  Don't these Spiced Oreo Pumpkin Balls by Some Day I'll Learn look adorable?!   They would be a fun treat to serve to your Thanksgiving guests.  

When you are ready to decorate for Christmas,  you may want to try to make a Snowman Tree like Project Goble.  What I really loved about this tree is it was made with items that were already on hand. 

My co-host Kim shared more Minion party ideas like these Minion Printable Kiss Stickers in honor to the new Minion movie that will be coming out next summer.  You can find these sticker and more Minion ideas over on her blog Kandy Kreations. 

Now it is time for this week's party.  You can share whatever you would like to share.  If you are chosen as a Dare to Share Feature of the Day,  your post will be promoted on my blog and social media.  Kim will also be chosing some features which will be promoted on her blog and social media.  

Now link up and HAVE FUN!
