Pumpkin Biscotti

Happy Friday! I'm looking forward to a weekend of Paramount Theatre dates (2 in one weekend!), a massage (my second one ever - I'm using a groupon), and piles of grading. Okay, I'm not looking forward to the amount of grading, but grading in cold weather isn't all that bad.

I baked pumpkin biscotti the other night using this recipe. The recipe holds its own without drizzled chocolate, but everything is better with drizzled chocolate.

I know I haven't been a good blogger, but I assure you in my absence from blogging that I'm not doing lots of exciting things. I've been kept busy with my new job. Next semester should be smoother and I will be returning to posting lots more. I will try and start posting something every week though.

Enjoy the cooler weather this weekend!

Happy Friday!

Happy Friday! This really is a happy friday. This weekend is Austin City Limits music festival, which is possibly my favorite weekend of the whole year. I wasn't sure what was going to happen this weekend because my grandmother in Florida is in ICU, but our latest report today is that she's doing a lot better than she was.

 I get to see M83 for the third time this year -- all in Austin -- all outdoor shows! I'm going to live it up this weekend because I've been working non-stop since school started in August.

 (P.S. Yes, I know, I didn't make a new happy friday...I used one of my old ones. oops!)

...just kidding. But I've missed you, blog. I've been the busiest I've been in a few years. Not a whole lot is new (besides my new job) except for these things: I want McDonald's ice cream cones frequently now (ew? no, come on! and they're only around 50 cents), I cut off a lot of my hair, and um that's all I got.

YAY tomorrow is Friday. I need to get a lot done this weekend, but this is all I really feel like doing:
