Moonlight & Mason Jars Link Party {#81}

Welcome to Moonlight & Mason Jars, everyone…hope this finds you staying warm!Moonlight & Mason Jars / M&MJ Hosts Graphic So I’ve been hearing all about how some parts of the country are already experiencing freezing temperatures and snow…which made me feel like a big ol’ wimp today when I was shivering-to-the-point-of-teeth-chattering along with a classful of PreK-ers, teachers, and parents on a field trip to the farm. The temp was lingering in the 40s with really high winds, and these Texans are just not equipped for that type of weather…at least not quite yet in November! Don’t laugh at me, northerners, but the rest of this week, I plan to keep my little tail indoors where it’s warm with no windchill.

I’ve been working on lots of Thanksgiving recipes for y’all this past week and I have more in store! In fact, you don’t want to miss tomorrow when I’ll be co-hosting an AWESOME Thanksgiving Menu Blog Hop along with a couple dozen of your favorite bloggers! We are all sharing our favorite holiday dishes for a full Thanksgiving menu of delicious recipes, from main dishes to sides to desserts…and don’t forget the pie! So be sure to stop back by on Wednesday, November 12th at 8:00 a.m. sharp for a fun time and lots of Thanksgiving recipe inspiration!

Oh, and before we get on with the party, time is almost up on our current $1000 Black Friday Shopping Spree Giveaway for a chance to win some big bucks before the holidays…so hurry over and ENTER HERE! And we also have a fun giveaway/contest running right now where you have a chance to name and win a gorgeous apron from Scarlet Threads’ new product line!
