Things I love today....

1. Williams Sonoma- A good Friend is getting Married soon, and she registered at Williams Sonoma. It had been a while since I had gone to Trolley Square, and I have been missing out! Check out the Red Ice cream maker on sale for $59.00. Or the Pumpkin Streusel Bunt cake mix!
2. Sewing- I just opened last years Christmas gift from my mom, a sewing machine. It is awesome! I don't know why I waited so long. On Etsy I found a pattern for Kimono Baby Booties, they are absolutely darling, I have already made three pairs.

3.Squash- On Sunday I made squash soup to take to my parents for dinner. Recipe:
3 cups cubed and peeled Banana or Butternut squash
1 cup baby carrots
1 small onion chopped
8 cups chicken broth
4 medium potatoes cubed and peeled
1 and 1/2 pkg cream cheese
salt to taste
pepper to taste
Boil chicken stock, add squash, potatoes, carrots,and onion. Cook until squash is easily pierced with a fork. Make sure veggies are just barely covered with stock, if there is excess water remove about a cup of stock. Put through a food processor or use a hand held blender until the soup is nice an smooth. Add cream cheese until melted and combined evenly. Add salt and pepper( I add lots of cracked pepper) And serve!

4. Leopard print- One of the pairs of booties I made was leopard print with red lining for a little girl! Adorable!

5. Caramel Apples- Two weeks ago I had a group of friends over to make caramel apples, first I taught them how to make homemade caramel, then we dipped, and had all kinds of things to roll them in, toffee, milk chocolate, Reese's pieces, nuts,and dipping the entire caramel apple in white chocolate then rolling in Cinnamon sugar mixture.(my personal favorite).

6. Halloween Decorations

7. Winder Dairy- Jamie and I decided to get our milk and eggs delivered to our door from Winder dairy. The milk and eggs are from animals that have not been injected with hormones, and the eggs are cage free and full of omega threes. The milk tastes so much better than store bought milk. It comes in milk bottles too! I love Monday mornings when we get our milk delivery. Its so old fashioned and unconventional!
