Hey guys, happy almost Friday! Hooray for a short week, right?
The boys and I are headed to San Antonio this weekend and this is probably our last San Antonio trip before we move, so send me all the must eats! All I care about is the food.
I mean, obviously we’ll see The Alamo again and we have other plans but really, I’m just going for the food. I already have a list of, like, 15 places and I plan on teaching the boys the fine art of eating like a food blogger.
Not much else going on around here right now. I finally stopped breaking all my resolutions on the 11th so that’s been good.

Hey guys! Are you shocked that I have more cookies for you?
I’m all cookies, all the time right now.
We have a bunch of new neighbors moving in right now (military community) and I have never been more excited for new people. They’re not even out of their moving trucks before I’m trying to hand tins of cookies to them.
I think baking is officially my favorite thing about the holidays.
I picked up ingredients for these yummy M&M’S® Brownie Cookies recently from the baking aisle at my local Walmart. The Walmart baking aisle has become my home in recent weeks – they have literally everything I need for my holiday baking.
Anyway, so what you need for these cookies is a box of Pillsbury™ Family Size Chocolate Fudge Brownie Mix, Pillsbury™ Creamy Supreme® Vanilla Flavored Frosting, and M&M’S® Brand Minis Milk Chocolate Baking Bits.
And then you need some vegetable oil, eggs, a tiny bit of flour, but that’s it!
Super simple and fuss free!
These cookies are so delicious. The taste of brownies with frosting and M&M’S®? I’m all about them!
Plus, they’re easy enough for my kids to do the bulk of the work. So we got the gift of family time by baking together and then we were able to gift the cookies to our newest neighbors. Sweet treats are definitely two gifts in one!
Are you giving any goodies away as gifts this year? I think everyone in my life is getting cookies and fudge!
If you’re planning to stock up on Pillsbury™ and M&M’S®, make sure you take advantage of the Ibotta offer at Walmart!
(Sidenote: I insist that you download Ibotta immediately if you don’t already have it. I’ve been using it for years and my lifetime earnings is at $224.85!)
M&M’S® Brownie Cookies

In a bowl, beat together brownie mix, eggs, flour, vegetable oil, and water until combined. Fold in about 1/2 of the M&M'S®. Drop by heaping tablespoons onto the prepared baking sheets.

Spread generously with the frosting and sprinkle with reserved M&M'S®.
Mummy Oreo Truffles are a spooky twist on the classic Oreo Truffles. Use Pumpkin Spice Oreos and white almond bark to create these little mummies! These are the cutest treats to bring to Halloween parties!
Heeeeey guys! Happy Wednesday!
Can you believe how close we are to Halloween? I haven’t even put out decorations.
I got them out. And put them all on a table in my living room. Weeks ago.
And they are still on that table.
I haven’t even switched my Pyrex wall to fall colors and you know that is the highlight of every season for me!
Life has just been so crazy lately! Maybe I’ll have sometime this weekend to get it sorted out. Or maybe I should just decorate for Christmas because who know when I’ll have time for that!
