Jennifer Garner and Thanksgiving Dinner: Talking Turkey in Style

my worldgiving organizationslifestylehobbies-me time

A little while back, I had the opportunity to enjoy a pre-Thanksgiving meal with Jennifer Garner in support of Frigidaire's $500,000 commitment to Save the Children's U.S Programs.

Here we are in the image above, including (from left): Ann Marie from This Mama Cooks, Jennifer Garner, Helen Jane from HelenJane.com, Alicia from Get Buttoned Up, and Cybele.

I don't know about you, but when I prepare for Thanksgiving, I don't get all dressed up. I am in my yoga pants, a sweatshirt (or oversized sweater, like I am wearing in the picture above), and often times haven't even showered yet. Of course, I get ready for the guests, but otherwise, I try to keep it as casual as possible. I'll spare you pictures of me, but go ahead and imagine.

And now, check out this image of Jennifer Garner.

She's pregnant, beautifully dressed, wearing, what?, 4-inch heels? And all this while pulling a turkey out of the oven.

Jennifer and I are obviously really different. Not only do I not have her style, but I wasn't a secret agent in a past life either! But, we do have a couple of things in common—our love of Symmetry Double Ovens and our support for the Save the Children organization.

This season, Frigidaire will donate $1 for each day you view Jennifer Garner's turkey tips  to help Save the Children's US programs. Just click on this Facebook link, then click the "Talk Turkey" tab and then the button, and voila! $1 dollar donated.

Check out this post for 5 ways to make a difference this season and learn more about Save the Children.

So, whether you dressed up to prepare Thanksgiving dinner or wore comfy casual attire, join with us to support important causes like education and families facing hunger this season by getting click happy and visiting the Talk Turkey tab every day between now and January 31.

What's your Thanksgiving Day style? How do you dress to prepare meals versus when the guests arrive? Any fun fashion traditions?

Disclosure: Frigidaire treated me to the Talk Turkey event with Jennifer Garner and provided me information on the Save the Children organization.
