Scenes from the {coziest} November Weekend

{early morning breakfast with a best friend at favorite cafe}

{newly discovered leg warmers and slipper socks...so warm and cozy!}

{dinner dates with my handsome fiancee...these have been hard to come by as of late with our busy schedules}

{hookah nights...all natural and herbal, no tobacco for those who may be concerned}

{twilight strolls}

{a fun manicure makes endless typing somewhat more bearable}

{I'm obsessed with pumpkin white chocolate chip cookies...see recipe below. Fiancee literally shoved these into his mouth, one after another. Okay...I did, too. Don't say you weren't warned}

Pumpkin White Chocolate Chip Cookies

1 cup sugar
1/2 cup butter
15 ounce can pumpkin
1 egg
1 tsp vanilla
2 - 1/2 cup flour
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp baking powder
1 - 1/2 tsp cinnamon
3/4 tsp ginger
1/2 tsp nutmeg
1/2 tsp allspice
1/2 tsp cloves
2 cups white chocolate (you can use chips or simple grate white chocolate of your preference)

* Preheat oven to 350F
*Butter + sugar, then pumpkin + egg + vanilla
*In a separate bowl mix flour + baking soda + baking powder + spices
* Add dry ingredients to wet, then mix in chocolate
* Drop onto baking sheet by the spoonfulls, bake until edges are golden

Also, several of you requested the recipe for the pumpkin soup I mentioned a few posts ago. You can find it here. Enjoy!

love the socks / houseshoe things. my mom bought me snoozies while i was visiting and i now sleep in them, they are so comfortable! i love the different-one-fingernail manicure & smoking hooka, even though i dont smoke, i like just puffing on it for flavor. i didnt know there was like a natural version! hmmm...

have a great week!!
