friday randoms

*I am searching for the perfect sqaush soup recipe. We had a roasted squash soup as a first course at my bridesmaids' luncheon and I've been obsessing over it ever since.  Sadly, it is NOT Ina's recipe.  Too sweet and too much curry.  This one was just sqaush and chicken stock and cream...I think.  Does anyone have a wonderful recipe they care to share?



*Have you all seen Dear Lillie?  I found this adorable blog/shop through Pinterest and am now obsessed with their darling holiday pillows.  Cute, right?  And SO reasonably priced!

*The beau and I are off to the sparkly land of upstate NY this weekend.  Syracuse, to be exact.  Anyone out there in blogland have any recommendations on what to do to entertain myself there tomorrow?  Anyone close by and want to be my tour guide?  Then it's off to Charm City for some shopping with my mother-in-law.  This could be interesting...

*I'm thinking of buying this vest.  I know it's a little girl's vest, but an XXL would totally fit me, and honestly, it's the only fur vest I've seen this season that is exactly what I'm looking for and not over $200.  Thoughts?


*After months of conscientious eating, all I can think about anymore is FOOD.  Currently occupying most of my brain real estate are these blueberry cinnamon rolls from Beantown Baker and this Thanksgiving panini from Williams-Sonoma.  Note to self:  getting married is not an excuse to get fat....is it?



*I am most certainly NOT a Mariah Carey fan {minus every song she sang in the 90s.  Those were pure gold.}, but I'm kind of obsessed with what I can see of her twins' nursery in these pics.  Those caramel gingham + floral custom crib draperies?  SWOON.  Where can I find more pictures?  Help!

One week ago today I was picking up one of my sweet bridesmaids from the airport and kicking off our wonderful wedding weekend.  Time flies when you're having fun!  Happy Friday!

Came across your blog from SUYL! I completely agree with you about Mariah's nursery, I drooled over it for days! And those pillows are precious.

I think you should totally get that vest! Please take a picture whenever you wear it! I wouldn't have a clue how to style an item like that, so I can't wait to see what you choose.

Love that vest. Did you check out the ones on Piperlime?

They served a sandwich similar to that in the cafe upstairs at WS, Inc. corporate. I ate them at least once a week when I was working there. So good.

They have almost the same vest at Target in the girl's section... and I've been thinking about buying it too :)
