Mixed Bag...lot's of goodness!!

None of the below topics were blog-worthy enough on their own, but together created a rather good post so here we go!! 

Firmoo

When Firmoo reached out to me to do a review of their services along with a pair of glasses, my first thought was, but I don't wear prescription glasses!! Rather than let a great pair of glasses go to waste I asked Gary if he wanted to test out the service and get some glasses. I think we all know his answer to that one!! 
Although he was a bit skeptical about ordering prescription lenses online he said the process was so easy! They even have a virtual look viewer that you can test run how the glasses will look on you! If you're interested in which ones he chose - you can view them here. Knowing what I know now and how quick the company turns their orders around - I would 100% order glasses from them since they have non prescription lenses as well as sunglasses too! If you're interested you can check out their Free Glasses program - yes free!! 

American Music Awards Fashion

I'm going to admit I missed almost the entire show because I forgot it was on, but one thing I never miss is the fashion!! Even though celebrities tend to go a bit more casual with their red carpet looks - I couldn't help but choose a few dressed up favorites!! Just as a side note - I thought Selena's dress was so much prettier in the back than the front - it wasn't very flattering...
Maybe this is a sign I'm getting older, but I had no clue who this Becky G girl was, but she has a song called Shower...yep! Ladies with the high slit - Love it! 

Thanksgiving Menu

Aside from the turkey and stuffing, I'm actually going to be making most of the sides!! On the menu is stuffed mushrooms, asparagus wrapped with prosciutto, roasted baby carrots, fresh cranberry sauce and sweet potatoes! I've never made cranberry sauce. but when Andy posted her recipe last week I knew I had to try it!! 

So there you have a mixed bag of thoughts floating around!! Happy Tuesday!!

  1. Ohh all that food looks delish! And Gary's new glasses look good! I have no idea who Becky G is either... oops. And I agree, Selena's dress was not very flattering from the front but from the back... wow!!

  2. I love Gary's new frames. I caught a glimpse of the red carpet and I thought Julianne looked amazing! I love roasted baby carrots, I can never stop eating them! The asparagus looks great too! xo

  3. Fergie and Julianne looked fantastic! Good luck with all that side dish prep - I'm responsible for the stuffed mushrooms, and then additional help with other dishes as needed, haha! Glad the Firmoos worked out for Gary - they look great!

  4. The glasses look good!

    I have never made fresh cranberry sauce either but I really want to! I don't even know if I have ever had it. We always have the canned stuff. Which is more solid than sauce....ya know?!

  8. Gary picked a good pair of glasses. I totally missed the AMA's but love seeing the fashion. Fergie is looking fierce. I think the prosciutto wrapped asparagus is the winner. ;)

  10. The glasses look great on him! I've been wondering how to do my "photo shoot" for my glasses hence the delay :-P

    All that food looks delish! I can't wait to feast this week!

    ReplyDelete
  11. I love those glasses!! I used Firmoo recently and I would totally recommend it, too! I also am digging anything Taylor Swift right now, and her dress is fab! And that food...I'm so hungry!!

  12. I must be old too... no clue who Becky G is or her song ‘Shower’ HA! Loved T. Swift’s outfit!

    ReplyDelete
  13. The AMA's were fun to watch this year- and I admit, I didn't know who Becky G was when she walked out, either, ha! :)

  16. Never heard of Becky G but then again I rarely know who these new singers are that all the kids listen to these days! Love Gary's glasses!

    ReplyDelete
  17. oh the AMAs - i love all the same outfits you chose! some were just terrible but that is how it goes. cool about the glasses ordering! i barely need them myself (just for computer) so i'm picky when it comes to my glasses. that seems like an easy solution. xo

  18. Genius idea to have Gary try the glasses!
    LOVE TSwift's dress! So good! Eric and I watched a bit of the AMA's... we felt so old and lame. We hardly knew who anyone was, HA!

    ReplyDelete
  19. Love when Gary joins in on the blogging fun! I didn't get to watch the AMAs but I checked out all the fashionistas and I love the ones you picked!

  20. Good for you girl for tackling all the Thanksgiving sides! Everything on the menu looks delicious. I just received my Firmoo glasses in the mail yesterday, and I'm loving them so far - I'll have a full review up later next month. :) I'm with you about the AMA's - who in the world is Becky G.?! I'm getting too old for this stuff.

    ReplyDelete
  21. Those glasses look so good on him! I've heard a lot of great things about Firmoo.
    I have no idea who Becky G is either--maybe we are getting old (nooooo!) but I kinda like her dress.
    Your Thanksgiving menu looks yummyyyy!!! Hope you have a good day girl!!

    ReplyDelete
  22. I totally forgot about the AMAs and am sad I missed the red carpet! I'll be making some traditional sides for our Thanksgiving too. :) Yours look much fancier than mine though. haha

    ReplyDelete
  23. The glasses look great on Gary! And the fact that they were free....wow, that makes them look even better! :) I didn't see Taylor Swift's full performance on the AMAs, but I saw a few recaps...WHOA...that whole production kinda blew my mind. That girl knows how to impress!

    ReplyDelete
  24. thank you for posting the link for the glasses!! i normally wear contacts, but need a new pair of glasses. can't wait to try it! also, those recipes look delicious! have a great thanksgiving! :)

  25. I didn't watch the AMAs at all (didn't even know they were on till the next day) but oh my goodness, Taylor Swift looks amazing. Seriously, it's not fair. I had to google the front of Selena's dress- ew. The back is definitely better.

    ReplyDelete
  26. I need new glasses, totally going to check them out. Good luck making the sides for Thanksgiving, that's alot of work. Lol. I'm so not a great cook.

    ReplyDelete
  27. We watched the AMA's and Chris kept asking me who certain people were, and I was like I don't know haha. I missed the red carpet though. I liked Taylor Swift's dress and Fergie's though. I'm making stuffing and green bean casserole today. Gary looks good in those glasses. Chris tried a pair like that on and they didn't look good on him, I was like ew take those off haha. I hope that you're having a great day so far! :-)

    ReplyDelete
  28. I watched some of the AMAs and felt like a cranky old woman, haha. Definitely have no idea who Becky G is.

    ReplyDelete
  29. I love the glasses, they look great on him! I just got mine last night and I LOVE them! Have fun cooking all your sides! All those recipes sound amazing! :)

  44. Stuffed mushrooms... Yum!!! My little sister (she's 6) is obsessed with Becky G. She played one of her songs for me - it was ridiculous lol. My poor dad who has to listen to that all day!!
    Love the styles you chose!!

    ReplyDelete
  45. Look at that cute (and hip!) hub of yours. I knew you should host Thanksgiving next year and this just confirms it with that menu ha.

    ReplyDelete
  46. I completely forgot the awards were on (I don't actually know if I even ever knew they were on Sunday in the first place...) until I was driving over to my friend's house to watch the Giants game and heard coverage of the red carpet on the radio. Oops! I never miss the big ones (Oscars, Emmys, Grammys) though... especially because I generally have no clue who half the people are at the smaller shows anymore! #oldladyproblems?
    Ohhhh that prosciutto-wrapped asparagus, get in my belly!

    ReplyDelete
  47. OMG. Bacon wrapped asparagus? My husband would be all over that! HAHAHA

    ReplyDelete
  48. Selena's dress is so hot! Backless is my fave look. I cant even rock it because I need to wear a bra though. You know how it is. We've discussed #bigboobproblems before as they related to fur vests. My daughter LOVES Becky G.

    ReplyDelete
  49. Love the dresses you picked out! I really like Taylor's dress, but I can't stand her! Selena is often on my best dressed lists. Love her red carpet looks!

  52. i actually wear my firmoo sunglasses all the time - they've held up really well for just $40!! i missed the AMAs as well so i'm totally out of the loop...

    ReplyDelete
  53. I tried out Firmoo for sunglasses about a year ago and the process was easy to do online. I think Gary picked ones that suit him well!! Love all of those dresses especially TS's and Fergie's dress.

    ReplyDelete
  54. Aw, glad Gary got his own little feature & yay for new glasses! (I'm also expecting to get my order in soon!) And I only caught the very end of the AMAs and that whole "steamy" performance with Iggy & J-Lo… nothing special. Definitely not the best award show but I really liked Taylor's dress!

    ReplyDelete
  55. I didn't get around to watching the AMA's so thanks for catching me up on the most important part...the red carpet! Happy Thanksgiving to you XOXO -

    ReplyDelete
  56. I did stuffed mushrooms last year and they were so yummy! Must add the prosciutto wrapped asparagus to my list! xo

  58. I got my new glasses yesterday and I love them. I don't wear glasses either but I got some just for fun. Will be reviewing as well. Love the ones you got your hubs!

    ReplyDelete
  59. Okay, let's start with the stuffed mushrooms!!! They are my fave!! Taylor is looking ridiculously amazing lately! That green dress is insane...and so is her body! I totally forgot the AMA's were on too! So impressed you got the hubs to pose! My better half is extremely camera shy lol!

  67. I don't watch awards shows anymore but I always loooove seeing what the girls wore afterwards!

    ReplyDelete
  68. YES! What was up with the front of Selena's dress? I couldn't figure it out-- maybe because she wasn't wearing a bra because of the back? Her look was my favorite too-- just not the front of the dress! I've been on a mushroom kick lately so stuffed mushrooms sound amazing!

    ReplyDelete
  69. I would be so nervous to order glasses offline! But how cool is that! Gary is such a tropper... Michael would have refused. Lol. I hope your side dishes turned out great! They all sound so delicious! :)
