Not So Black Friday

How was your holiday weekend? I know I enjoyed my four days off! I had a wonderful Thanksgiving dinner with friends, and I even had a small bite of smoked grilled turkey.  Other then that I stuck to my vegetarian diet and enjoyed the side dishes.  Growing up Thanksgiving was a day to over indulge in my house and since become a vegetarian I have moved away from that way of thinking.  When I do cook on holidays I try to keep my meals simple, healthy and tasty.  No more two and three plates for me or feasting on leftovers for three to four days afterwards.  I must say not having leftovers for a couple of days is the hard part, holiday leftovers are my absolute FAVORITE! These small changes make a huge difference and I was able to enjoy my holiday weekend without feel guilty about over eating. 

Who went shopping Thursday night???

Not me I was laid up on my couch watching Bad 25, if you guys didn't know I am the biggest Micheal Jackson fan EVER.  I seriously thought I was going to marry MJ when I was growing up.  I am going to watch that documentary over and over and over and over again!  Friday I woke up had a nice breakfast and decided to finally venture down to Lincoln Rd to check out the new H&M store.  Of course by the time I got there it was pretty low key, no lines not waiting.  I walked away with a $49 blazer that was marked down to $20 and a cute sweater for $10.  That was pretty much it for my black Friday.  I might pick up a few things today for Cyber Monday, probably beauty items or maybe an outfit for New Years Eve. 

How was your holiday weekend? What was your favorite food item from Thanksgiving? Did you score any great clothing deals this weekend?

  2. I am not a vegetarian, although I am leaning towards it, I indulged in the norm but my portions were minimal and I only had 1 plate. Go me! Super cute casual look. My fave Thanksgiving food is mom's sweet dressing & making my grandma's famous strawberry icebox pie (she gave me the recipe before she passed in '03). I did some Black Friday shopping that night after the crowds died down and picked up a new lip color & liner from MAC.

  4. Very cute and casual outfit!!

    I only stuck to on plate, but I did have turkey and ham.  Now what I killed it for me was sweets, I made pecan pies and a caramel and I LOVE both so those did it in for me. But I did put in extra time working out and I am back on track!!!

  6. I'm not a fashionista but I know style when I see it. It looks like what even you put on seem so chic and well thought out, I guess with all the curves confidence is next in line. With that being said this holiday for me was truly different, no more feeling bad about over indulging in Thanksgiving food thanks to people like you. I can see I'm not alone about caring about my health rather than eating the best tasting corn bread ))))EVER((((. You have been a great inspiration to my new lifestyle or should I say a better way of doing life. You’re the best from your number one fan!!!!!......

  7. Luv the look. I recently started following your blog and I have enjoyed all of your looks. I went out on Black Friday myself and all I bought was a pair of shoes. I didn't really see much that I had to have.
