It started with coffee (well, once D woke up and showed me how to start the contraption that is our coffee maker). This coffee addiction is VERY new. Our coffee maker generally gets used maybe two or three times a year when we have company mostly...
But now I'm addicted and we're getting A LOT of use!
We purchased a few "extras" to add (no Katie, there is no Baileys...I know you are looking for it)!
I stole a "trick" from my mom's friend Herma and added some cinnamon to the coffee while it was brewing...EXTRA YUM!
We've stuck to decaf because otherwise we'd be bouncing off the walls!!!
After getting some coffee goodness into me I started a little treat I happened to find on Heidi Swapp's blog...Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies...
First things first - every kitchen diva must have cute accessories...notice the pink measuring tools...
Colour coordinated mixing bowls...
ooooey gooooooey pumpkin choc. chip goodness...
And last but not least...the finished product!
Next time I will squish them down a bit and make them smaller. They are DELISH but I think they could be even better!
I think by far my favourite part of Thanksgiving Monday was having my sleepy faced honey wrap me in his arms for a wonderful hug. It truly doesn't get better than that!
Ok, can I just say the lovely fall aromas in the house are being TOTALLY RUINED because our windows are open and all I can smell is COW. We're not far from farm country and ewwwwww it really stinks!
The afternoon's activities are going to be simple...get my creative mojo going and catch up on some of my Design Your Life assignments. I may sneak in a little afternoon nap while I'm at it.
