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.

Get the gold T. I find it goes with just a little more, so they get more use.
Your menu sounds wonderful, and for the record I, too, like cranberry salad. Enjoy your holiday!
