It’s that season! The season that includes a pretty tasteless gourd that we turn into any dessert possible. And today I’m turning it into cookies! I’m always trying to find new ways to make cookies egg-free and you would never know these ones are! They are soft, chewy, and absolutely delightful! As soon as I made them, I took them straight to my friends house who just had a baby, along with a casserole. I’m not good with presents or even emotions, but I’m good at making people food. That’s the only way I know how to show affection for someone. So if I make you food, that’s a good sign. If I don’t, something is off. I really suck at helping my friends with their children since I don’t get children…or parenthood…but hopefully these cookies made my friends feel like I support them in their new journey. Because their little boy was CAAAAAUUUUUUTTTEEE. It’s always helpful when your friends have adorable babies so you don’t have to lie. Amiright?!
I can’t believe the holidays are right around the corner. Holy poop. During the holidays I always feel like a bit of a failure because I’m not big into holiday decorating. Who has time for that?! 100% of instagram, that’s who. Everyone has their orange and burgundy potted plants out and 47 different kinds of pumpkin lining their walkway to their house. But if you walk up to our house, we have none of that. You know who likes to eat pumpkins? Squirrels. And rotting half eaten pumpkins just aren’t as cute. We have two squirrels in our backyard just waiting for us to put out some pumpkins…which will never happen. Decorating never even crosses my mind, except when I’m instagram scrolling and every single girl is holding a pumpkin in her hands. So festive.
I will once again not be decorating this year because…we bought a new house!!!! I mentioned last week that we found a house and put an offer down, and we were just waiting to hear back. Well we did! They accepted our offer and signed the contract, so now we close right around Thanksgiving. The house is literally 5 minutes from our house now, which is what we were hoping for. We needed a bigger space, but we wanted to stay in our neighborhood because we LOVE it. And it all worked out, just like some of you said here on the blog. You guys are way more level headed than me. So we will be spending our Thanksgiving moving in then cleaning up our old house to stage then put on the market. Our thanksgiving will be spent eating pizza on the floor in a new house. And I’m IN.TO.IT. I don’t even really like Thanksgiving food that much, pizza is more my style.
I haven’t even told our friends or our neighbors that we are moving. But you guys are my friends (a friendship I forced upon you), so I had to tell you ASAP! This change has me excited, nervous, overwhelmed, and FREAKING THE F OUT! Moving is already stressful, but then add snow, holidays, work, and all the stress around expenses…yeah, I’m freaking out. I’ve always been a bit of a pessimist and so all I can think of is everything that can go wrong, but I need to change that attitude because it SUCKS ASS to be around. I just can’t believe we are moving, all before Christmas. It’s bananas how life works out sometimes. Now excuse me, I have some online furniture shopping I need to do!
