Lately

Thank you all for your sweet notes and comments congratulating me on my 5,000 followers. Even though it’s not a big deal to many, it was a fun milestone for me!

I feel like the weeks are FLYING by and I am shocked that we are already a week into November. Time needs to take. a. chill. pill. and slowwwwww downnnnnnn. I am, however, glad that it’s Friday! Mikey and I have a relaxing weekend of hanging out with some friends ahead of us. Just what we need after our crazy housewarming party and Halloween last weekend! Bundle up and stay warm, It seems like those 70 degree days are behind us now (booooo).

Here are some of the things I’m crushing on lately.

I am a big fan of Edamame. Any shape or form, I’m always drawn to the little green guys and this delicious Edamame Soup looks fantastic!

I’m sure you’re all aware of my obsession with Alexis Bittar…and he has yet again made a piece (and a ring to match) that I am completely enamored with.

I really think I need to get this fire escape shelf and hang it outside on our patio. Living on the top floor of a walk up, our back stairs at times feel like a fire escape. I just love how adorable this is and think it would be perfectly ironic on our porch, filled with herbs and succulents!

Show me a stew that looks more hearty than this Cozido De Grao from Saveur. Seriously. I challenge you.

Are you thinking of hosting Thanksgiving dinner at your house this year? We are staying in Chicago this year to celebrate with Mikey’s family (his sister is going to have a baby any day now!!) and we have the extra bonus of my family coming down as well. Hoping to soak in as much family time as possible and hopefully throw a Friendsgiving into the mix as well. If you are planning on hosting however, here is an awesome guide to help you prepare your perfect feast!

And finally, I have to include some sort of clothing. These Sorel Medina Boots are somewhat impractical but so amazing!!!!! I think I am going to try and convince Mikey that I need these for trudging through the snow this Winter 😉

One thought on “Lately

  1. Your gauge for Thanksgiving is really helpful but……the stuffing/dressing is way off. I think 4-6 cups per person would be more accurate 🙂
