haha oh no! big bird! - Happy Thanksgiving week! I hope you all have lots of eating and family activities planned this week? I'm excited for all the baking I get to do! On my baking agenda is...
These browned butter sea salt chocolate chip cookies
Monster Cookies from Sally's Cookie Cookbook (as seen below)

how is it the weekend already? here is a weekly recap in few words per picture
(iBrrrrrr.... made it home to B's parents' house this past weekend - him and his dad did some deer hunting! I did venture out Sunday morning and sat with him for a few hours..but it was cold! Manageable but cold.
Favorite part? being with him. sitting in nature. drinking my coffee. and eating my apparently way too loud snack. oops!? - But seriously...have you tried the rx maple sea salt bars? (i'll post a link below...)
That afternoon I decided to make a trip to Trader Joe's! His parents live about 40 minutes from one...and it's about 3.5 hours from our place so it's like a treat to be able to go! I know many of you have your own favorites from there (as do I) so I thought it would be fun to share what I brought home! - Part one will feature some pantry items...and part TWO will be my freezer things!
You know those days when you realize you haven't showered in a few days...or your hair is like 90% dry shampoo... um... me either. but just in case that should ever happen to you for some reason...cough...you should try this!

Happy Friday! Here are a few pics from the past week! Hope you all have a great weekend!
Time to for another real and raw post!

My mind has been a CLUSTER eff this week so since I have a quiet weekend planned I'm determined to get my head on straight (more).
