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!

    “Pretty tasteless gourd that we turn into any dessert possible” might be the best thing ever said about pumpkin season. Laughed so hard I almost lost my coffee. These cookies look amazing!!!

    Congratulations on the new house!!!!! We closed last year right after Thanksgiving and the greatest part about closing around that time is all the Black Friday deals you can get on new home things and since everything is online you can just have it shipped to your new house and dont have you worry about packing it up! Also big reason to not decorate! It’s a win all around. So happy for you and your family and clearly the world is giving you a great gift this year!!!

    1. juli says:

      yes!! i keep forgetting about Black Friday and my husband keeps reminding me not to purchase anything until then. but it’s so haaaaard lol buying all the new things for a new place is so damn fun!! thanks for the love Sara!!

    So happy for you! I recently bought a new home and was stressed and uptight and made my poor boyfriend miserable – I regret it now but at the time I was in a major panic mode. I know easier said than done but try to enjoy it. And if I heard that while I was in the middle of it I probably would have gotten even madder – hope that didn’t happen to you!

    1. juli says:

      i totally feel the same way. i lost my shit and now feel terrible about it! but now i’m in the stage where I can enjoy it and get excited for the future instead of just worried

    Juli I will gladly take this friendship that you’ve forced upon me for the last 8ish years! I’m so happy that you found a house and I can’t wait to try these cookies out!

    1. juli says:

      thanks Darcy!!

  4. Joselyne says:

    Yay! Congrats on the new house! Hire professional movers! The hubby and I hired professional movers for our last move in December of 2017. It made moving less stressful. The movers packed all our belongings and then hauled it to the new house. They even offered to unpack, but I declined because I wanted to unpack a certain way. I will never move again without hiring help. Oh, I almost forgot, I noticed maple sugar was missing the unit of measurement. I’m assuming it’s cup? Either way, I can’t wait to try the new cookie recipe.

    1. juli says:

      oh man, i totally would BUT we are moving 5 minutes away. it just doesn’t make sense because of that haha! and thank you for pointing out that typo, all fixed!

  5. Kimberly says:

    seriously, the BEST thing you can give a new mom is food!! or clean their house/do dishes/laundry. one less thing to do. you’re a great friend 🙂

    1. juli says:

      awwwww that’s great to hear! cooking for people is the only way i know how to show affection lol

  6. Liz says:

    I made these cookies this weekend – they were so easy and really delicious. I made them with coconut oil that has a vegan butter flavor and they came out great! My boyfriend was skeptical about gluten free cookies but ended up eating most of the batch I made right after I made them! Thanks for another great recipe! I appreciate the egg free option!

    1. juli says:

      awesome! glad you liked them liz!

  7. Kari says:
