Thanksgiving is less than a week away. Are you ready? I kind of am. I still need to test a few recipes. If you’ve got a bit of time, though, you should check out this week’s From Our Friends. From Our Friends is OA’s weekly roundup of our favorite posts, published by our friends and partners around the web.

This week’s post has a link to an article about eco-friendly ways to stay warm, a link to some cute Thanksgiving dresses, recipes for Thanksgiving punches, a sweet potato recipe, and some tips about mushroom foraging. Also: 50 tips for ladies who want to lead a full life and a DIY craft tutorial.
