It’s Friday Bitches!!  And you know what that means…..

ONE – Kaia Butternut Squash Soup is legit.  It’s good for you too.  Double whammy.  


Here’s what you’ll need:

  • 2 cups veggie stock
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 carrot, peeled + diced
  • 1 granny smith apple, cored + diced
  • 1 medium butternut squash, peeled + seeded + diced
  • 1 sprig fresh sage (don’t skip this)
  • 1 white onion, diced
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/8 teaspoon cayenne
  • pinch of each: ground cinnamon + nutmeg
  • 1/2 cup coconut milk

Place all ingredients in your slow cooker, minus the coconut milk.  Combine.  Cook 6 hours on low or 3 hours on high.  Stir in coconut milk.  Using an immersion blender, puree the soup until smooth.  Season with additional salt + pepper + cayenne, if needed.  Serve warm.

6 servings

I left mine a little more chunky, as you can see.

You will thank me for this one.  It tastes indulgent.  I even bribed my mom with it a couple times last week after she taste tested it 🙂  

TWO – These jeans.  They are everything.  Have I ever mentioned how much I LOVE jeans?  Jeans are my uniform 7 days a week.  When I find a goody, I have to share with my peeps. 

So, I spent a lunch break at Gap searching their girls clearance items (additional 50% off).  Gap has the best sales.  I strolled into the women’s department, which I haven’t visited in months.  Lo and behold, I found a perfectly distressed denim.  Then guess what happened?  I decided to return them for a size smaller.  Hallelujah!!  And the smaller size fit.  Can I get a whoop whoop!?!?!   


GAP AUTHENTIC 1969 destructed true skinny jeans

If you have time, please go try these on.  And also check out the new GAP Best Girlfriends Jeans too.  Right smack dab between a skinny + boyfriend.  Not too baggy like a typical boyfriend jean.  Just slightly oversized fit.  They are the next on my list to purchase.  It’s pure jean ♥

FIVE – I’m headed to the city with my girls this weekend.   We have so many fun things planned!  I have to admit, I’m super looking forward to Beach Blanket Babylon the very most.  It’s been on my bucket list for far too long, I can’t wait to check it off.  I hear it is the true San Francisco treat, sorry Rice-A-Roni.  The Musical’s storyline is a girl, Snow White (to be exact) who travels the word meeting a slew of famous people.   Adding all kinds of current events about politicians, movie stars, singers, athletes, world leaders, you name it, there is a skit about it.  Sounds right up my alley!! 


Beach Blanket Babylon, the world’s longest running musical revue and one of the most popular San Francisco attractions, is a high energy pop culture satire and the perfect night out with friends. The San Francisco Chronicle gives Beach Blanket Babylon, the San Francisco musical revue, its highest rating and calls it “the real San Francisco treat!”  Celebrating over 15,000 performances, Beach Blanket Babylon has become a world renowned record-breaking success. Seen by nearly six million people from around the world, this internationally acclaimed musical revue continues to delight audiences at Club Fugazi in the City’s North Beach district with its hilarious spoofs of pop culture, spectacular costumes and outrageously gigantic hats! For San Francisco things to do, choose Beach Blanket Babylon.

Come back Monday for my {weekend notes} with all kinds of deats on our SF girls getaway.
