Witches' Night Out

I had a great weekend in Utah with Wendy! On Friday we were able to drop off her kids & then meet my sister Chelsea for lunch & spend the rest of the afternoon shopping. After a healthy amt. of shopping we donned our dresses & witch hats & met up with some gals from Wendy's ward to go to Witches' Night Out. Basically it was shopping dressed up as a witch. There were additional outdoor vendors & there was live music & contests & stuff, and it was pretty fun to see so many grown women dressed up! Seriously, there were so many people there that night it was as bad as Disneyland on a busy day! When Wendy's husband mentioned to a co-worker what we were doing that night the co-worker misunderstood/mis-heard the witches part. We had a good laugh about what he thought he'd heard. Oh, & I think this picture makes me look more pregnant (and fatter & gross) than I actually look. Just an FYI!

On Saturday we went to a 12 hour crop at Archiver's! It was so awesome! I didn't get as much done as I would have liked for the amount of time we were there, but it was pretty fun! I would totally love to do it again! On Sunday we laid around the house fighting sleep since we always stay up way too late when we're together! My sister Tara came over & we made pumpkin chocolate chip cookies & I think I ate a dozen! If you like pumpkin cookies make this recipe - it's SO easy & great!

1 spice cake mix
1 small can pure pumpkin (not pie mix!)
chocolate chips

Bake at 350 for like 14 mins. It's hard to tell when they're actually done. The tops should be a little cracked.

The great thing about these is that even if you overbake them a couple minutes they're still really chewy & moist since they're made from a cake mix. Oh, & when you're mixing the pumpkin & the cake mix it will seem at first like it's impossible, but it's not. Most of the mix should get mixed in, but if there are a few little cake mix specs left in there it's okay. Can you believe how simple that is though? And they're great! I'm a big lover of pumpkin chocolate chip cookies & this recipe is new to me and I LOVE it! I doubt I'll ever make them the traditional way again. And if you make them and you don't like them than your opinion is wrong!!! :)

i was looking for a pumpkin chocolate chip cookie recipe for a party this weekend. that one sounds great. i'll have to give it a try. i made chocolate pumpkin swirl brownies (a martha stewart recipe) instead. they were pretty good. even better with whipped cream.
