I've been a bad blogger lately. I just haven't had much to report. I have been reading your blogs on a daily basis.
I can update you on my search for foundation to replace my trusty old Clinique SuperFit. After trying many samples, I have decided to switch to Chanel Mat Lumiere. It looks fabulous on my face, and it also feels great.
This afternoon, I almost went to Gus Mayer to buy a pair of Tory Burch Revas, but as I was getting ready to go, I talked myself out of it. I can't decide if I want the goldtone or silvertone logo medallion. I can't believe that all of a sudden, I had this hesitation. You see...on October 20, 2009, I had planned to go to Gus Mayer or Saks Fifth Avenue on my way home from work to try on a pair of Revas. As I was showering, I all of a sudden did not feel very well. I decided that I was going to stay home. As I was walking back to the bedroom, I fell and broke my foot. The next week, I had surgery. I could not walk on my foot for 8 weeks. Then I had to learn to walk again. For about a year, I wore Tretorns, even with dresses. I then was able to wear a couple of pairs of old shoes. Now, 2 years later, the swelling is finally gone. Now, I can wear my normal shoes. To celebrate, I want to treat myself to a pair of Revas. Which color logo medallion do you think I should get? I wear both gold and silver jewelry. I have neutral black shoes that I can wear with either jewelry.
I am looking forward to Thanksgiving. We are going to eat at my sister and brother-in-law's house. It will be us and my brother-in-law's siblings and their children. My mother is preparing hen and dressing and sweet potato casserole - she makes the one with the pecan topping. I'm baking a fudge pie and a chocolate pecan pie. I am also making a green bean casserole - not the regular with green beans, cream of mushroom soup and french fried onions. My recipe is green beans and water chestnuts topped with a mixture of cream of mushroom soup and sour cream. The final topping is grated cheddar cheese and cracker crumbs. As it bakes the soup/sour cream mixture melts into the green beans. It reminds me of the green bean casserole served at Andy's in Opelika. I ate my fair share of Andy's green bean casserole when I was a student at Auburn. For the first time in many years, I am not making a cranberry salad. My mother and I discussed that she and I are the only ones that like it, so why bother.
I hope everyone has a great Monday.
