It’s the day before Thanksgiving in the US and I’m actually not stressed out. My sister is hosting this year (we hosted last year) so all I need to do is cook the green beans and bacon in white wine vinegar (yum!!) while my hubby makes the baked zitti. It’s so much easier when we’re not the hosts…I don’t know why it is but whenever we have a get-together at our house, my hubby and I seem to bicker more – about nothing and everything, which is why I don’t particularly like having parties at our house. This year, I’m sittin’ pretty..just showing up with our two dishes, then partaking to our heart’s content…ahhhh, the Holidays, gotta love ’em.
Today, I worked for a few hours, then headed home to pick up hubby to see Skyfall. With my brother and his wife visiting (they are so good with our two girls), we actually got a chance to go out on a mini date. Movie was fantastic…Bond never disappoints.
I’m not going to talk much about my outfit…it’s pretty simple – favorite skinny jeans from Ann Taylor Loft, a stripe tee from F21, and velvet slipper shoes from Gap (love!). What I do want to talk about is the namesake of this post, the French Hen iPhone case (see close up pic here) which I just about had given up on finding (sold out online) – I procastinated getting it ’til it was almost too late. I got the French Hen scarf (see Polyvore set with scarf here) when it first came out for fear of it selling out – which of course it did – but I held off on the iPhone case waiting to upgrade my 3S to the 4S. When I finally did, the darn case was sold out online. I’ve been looking for it ever since and was even tempted to get it from eBay (see here) with an inflated “But It Now” price but I’m so glad I held off. Yesterday, after a day trip to Boulder, we stopped by Cherry Creek Mall in Denver and on a whim I decided to check J.Crew to see if they still had it and lo and behold, there it was on sale at $17 and change. Yay!!! I was so happy to see it there – only one left. I don’t know what it is about this print but I am enamored with it; the little hens with the red berets…it puts a smile on my face everytime I see it. So glad we made that mall pitstop yesterday.
So that’s it for now…Happy Thanksgiving to everyone in the US and those around the world who celebrate it. I am so thankful for all the blessings that have come our way and I hope we all can have more to be thankful for in the coming year.
