Hello hello hello and how is your weekend going? Mine has been pretty busy but has also allowed for some workouts and downtime which I love. Friday night was one of my best friends, Alexis’ birthday. Every year I always look forward to Thanksgiving and I also know that Alexis’ birthday is right after the holiday which is always fun.
Saturday included a great workout at the gym (um, ten minutes on the stair master is enough to make me feel like I haven’t worked out since 2001-but that’s for another day) and baking some pumpkin ‘cookies’ that were thrown together with some random ingredients I had on hand:
I mean, I have to say, for such a random mixture, I think these ‘cookies’ turned out pretty well. I like how chewy they are in the center — but if you like really sweet cookies, these probably aren’t for you. They’re more like pumpkin biscuits with a little hint of honey. I used wayyyy too much flour. So until I perfect these, I don’t think posting the recipe will do anyone any good!
Saturday night included a get together at my friend Tina’s before going out in Queens for the evening. It was so nice to spend time with some girls I hung out with regularly in high school and we all had so much to catch up on that we didn’t wind up ordering our dinner until 10:00. It was SO worth it.
One of the luckiest parts of my life is that some of my best friends are still my friends from when I was little or in middle school/high school. I think that’s pretty rare.
Now I’m off to get a quick workout in before heading to see The Nutcracker with my friend Analeesa! Enjoy the rest of your Sunday
Question: Do you still have friends from childhood or high school? Do you keep in touch regularly?
