Thanksgiving week is here and it is time to start making plans for getting together with friends and family. Good food is what most people look forward to and I must say that I look forward to that too. My favorite part of my Thanksgiving meal is the sweet potato crunch, it is like dessert. Yum, yum. We stay in Grundy for Thanksgiving and normally Joe’s sister comes in to visit. It is just a small gathering with her 3 family members, Joe and me, and Joseph and Kayla and Emersyn. There are just 8 of us, so we don’t have to cook a huge amount of food. We will eat, sit by the fire and talk, eat some more, then watch TV, and then eat some more. Lol! I bought this vest earlier this year and sat it back in the closet till it got colder. That time is now, it was in the 20’s this morning. That is very cold when you are out on your front porch in you gown and robe taking out the dogs to use the bathroom. I take a big blanket and throw over my legs and sit in the rocking chairs for them to do their business. I love the plaid design and the colors just scream fall. The brand of this vest is Jofiel and I looked and looked for one like it on the internet. I never did find one that I thought was really close, but I did try.
I donned my turquoise jewelry for this outfit. The cross necklace and earrings have become one of my most favorite pieces. I added the shorter Ada necklace for some extra dimension. This is the necklace that says Bless Your ❤️ The Eunice bracelet is on the right and on the left is all kinds of bangles. I am not even going to link to them. Lol I can’t wait for the Black Friday events that Plunder will be having this year. I was not with them last year, but I have been told that they will be offering special deals on new pieces that are not in the catalog. I of course will add my own special deal too. I have on a pair of black Pixie Pants from Old Navy and my Marc Fisher brown leather knee boots. I thought the brown boots and purse looked good with this outfit because of the brown in the vest. The purse is a GILI that I bought at the outlet store. There are two outlet stores in town that I go to frequently and both of them have Facebook pages. Here and Here.
One of the really fun aspects about wearing a sherpa vest is all the fuzz you get on your other clothes when you first wear them. I caught myself brushing off my pants and I thought it was funny. It doesn’t take much to amuse me. HahaHere you go Charlcy, another all black outfit. The vest is the only thing that breaks up the all black and it makes a huge difference. The long sleeve t-shirt is one I bought years ago at Cato’s. You can find a black t-shirt almost anywhere. I like this one because I have worn it for several years and it has not shrunk in girth or length.This may actually be one of my favorite outfits that i have worn on the blog. It is simple, casual, and still very stylish. What kind of holiday celebrations do all of you have? Feel free to share any of your favorite recipes, I know the gurls would love to try something new.
Who is going shopping on Black Friday??? I probably will do most of my shopping right here on the computer but I might venture out a little. I will try to do a post of some sales I find interesting for you and I will be offering a Black Friday, a Shop Small Saturday, and a Cyber Monday deal on Rodan and Fields that you will not want to miss. If you have been curious about all the hype of Rodan and Fields, this might be the time for you to check it out. I can tell you this, since I started using the AMP roller, I will not be sporting the turkey neck look this year. WooHoo!!!!
I have so very much to be thankful for. I am blessed beyond my wildest dreams and I am grateful to the Lord for all HIS mercy and HIS grace. I want to leave you with this song, one of my favorites, it seems so appropriate at this time.
