Another week has gone by and I am continuing to enjoy and adjust to my new life in New England. This past week I went to my very first comedy show at The Wilbur Theatre in Boston to see John Mulaney. Zac and I once listened to one of his shows on a long car ride and I swear by the end of it my cheeks were in actual pain from laughing so hard. The show did not disappoint and I left wanting to go to more comedy shows in the future.

Speaking of entertainment, these cookies are super easy to make and great for parties. The term "fluffy" might sound strange at first describing a baked good usually dubbed chewy, chunchy, or dense, but one bite and you'll understand what I mean. They are airy, soft, and full of pumpkin spice like little pumpkin pillows of yumminess.

Watch out for the dough on these ones too because it's pretty irresistible. I don't know about you guys, but eating dough is one of my favorite parts of making cookies and until the day I get salmonella I'm sticking to that statement.
