TGIF and the Start to Holiday Shopping

I don't know about y'all, but I sure am glad it's Friday. It's been one of those longggg ongoing weeks. Blah. But now it's Friday, which makes it all the better. Tonight I get to go teach my little kiddies some acrobats and then celebrate a friend birthday afterward. Always a good way to end the week.

Tomorrow, Saturday, I am off! It's been a while since I've had a Saturday with no plans. It's crazy. I was thinking I may get a head start on holiday shopping. It's only about 6 weeks away! Whoa.

I was thinking I would share some gift ideas with y'all today. These are things that are on my list, as well as great items to give.

In just a few weeks, I'll be moving into a brand new home, and I don't have much to fill it with except the basics. So a lot of Christmas list is small appliances/home goods (Not totally, since I'm a girlie girl and love clothes and makeup).

If you know of someone who loves to cook (or fake cook like I do) check out They have some awesome ideas there.

This awesome little thing is on my list. It runs about $125-150, but I'm hoping it goes on sale. It's perfect size for me and I make a ton of smoothies. I'll link it here.
My must have item on my Christmas list is always new pajamas. I am such a nerd like that though. Victoria's Secret has great ones, but they can be pricey (you gotta catch a sale). Target has great sets by Nick and Nora. I have 2 pairs that I got years ago from Target that I still wear over and over again.
I totally need these. Only $29.99. They make great gifts too!

Another place I love the buy gifts is They have soooooo many ideas for everyone on your list at every price. Check them out! There's a few other places that I do most of my shopping from, and I'll link them all below.

Happy Friday

Clean and Vegan Fall Cookies!

Oh man,

Sometimes I feel like cooking. Mostly I don't. Butttttt I needed a sweet treat that wasn't left over Halloween candy. I ate too much already.

I was just looking at what I could make with what I had. I came across this recipe. Which I will link here. It's oatmeal and pumpkin cookies, which is totally appropriate for the season.

I modified it a bit, and here's mine!

  • 1 cup whole wheat flour
  • 1/2 cup old fashioned oats
  • 1/4 cup sucanat/sugar in the raw
  • 1/2 cup honey
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • dash of nutmeg and ginger
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp sea salt
  • 1/4 cup coconut oil
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 3/4 cup canned pumpkin puree
Mix all ingredients together. Use parchment on a cookie sheet and use a spoon to make dough balls. Flatten the balls just a bit with a spoon. You can place these pretty close together they won't expand that much. Place in the oven for 15-20 minutes at 350.

Next time I think I'm gonna add walnuts or pecans for some extra crunch. But they are really good! I wasn't expecting to like them this much. I'm definitely gonna keep my hands on this recipe for future use.
