Pumpkin Spice Chocolate Chip Cookies

Monday, ew.

It was somewhat difficult to get out of bed this morning, mostly because of this adorable thing.

Doesnt she look completely content?

I somehow managed to make it up in time to get ready for work which was a shocker because I was dragging major ass. I am blaming it on all the food we ate at the fair yesterday. Food hangover!

And sadly – I did not get my weekend to-do list  done (at all). So I will be spending some time this week working on that!


I bet you can guess what I enjoyed for breakfast today…

Look at that peanut butter banana-y goodness!


I am happy to report the power came back on 2 hours or so after we had been home. It was really eerie outside since our whole apartment complex was dark, no street lights or anything.

I didnt get to finish my laundry….but, I did end up baking my pumpkin spice cookies! If you love soft, really moist cookies you will love these. They almost have more of a consistency like a muffin because they are spongy. Definitely one of my favorites!

I obviously need to work on being consistent with my cookie dough spooning because they are all different sizes. And shapes… check out the one in the bottom left corner.

I am so excited to share this recipe with you guys since it is one of my absolute favorites!
