today was it. as far as fall days in southern california go, you know? no changing leaves to play in, or 35 degree weather to brave. but for me, and what i'm used to here in san diego, it was perfect.
by 10am i was out of the house on time, to run errands:
the bank: to withdraw our weekly cash allotment.
walmart: paper plates, party decor, halloween candy, cute little pumpkin candy bucket for my little trick-or-treater. [she was sort of excited about that, can you tell?]
trader joes: groceries
then home: mac & cheese for R, and turkey chili for me
then i finished up this wreath for a birthday gift. i love it and secretly wish i could keep it. luckily i know the gal who makes them so i could probably convince her to make another one ;)
then it was nap time.
and i worked [my "real job", which is tech support via email and online chat]. while making this:
and this is where it got real, you guys. an already good, productive, fun fall-weather day...
magical enough for a 25-weeks-pregnant-lady, anyway.
um thee best cookies ever? yes.
then i clicked over to the recipe and realized i had all the ingredients in house already.
the dough is literally heaven
[i really really love cookie dough. a lot].
and the baked cookies melt in your mouth.
i can thank Mindy for helping me gain an extra 15 pounds this pregnancy.
but they're healthy right? because they have pumpkin in them? ha!
pair them with some hot trader joe's cider and you guys,
it's the perfect fall day.
just try it and you'll know what i mean.
signing off to make a headband for my niece who's going to be a flower girl this weekend :)
the crafting fun never really ends.
PS i made a few changes to the recipe:
i used butter flavored crisco.
you might think that's gross,
but i use it in my chocolate chip cookies,
and also i didn't have enough regular butter.
i used this little trick i showed you,
where you smash the dough with sugar before baking
and i baked them for only 10 minutes.
and i may have added a lot more chocolate chips
