click, purchase, mine: Black Friday edition

It would have been prudent of me to spend Black Friday picking up Christmas gifts for Kevin's family, but come on -- I'm way too selfish for that. So I got a pedicure, grabbed Thai food with the little sister and the boy, resolved to start my Christmas shopping on Monday, and bought a few Chanukah gifts for myself instead.

the dessert problem

Traditionally, by the time I've made it through all of the turkey and stuffing, I barely have room left on Thanksgiving for dessert. I consider this to be a great tragedy, because let's be honest -- I'm a whore for desserts, especially baked goods. Here are three pumpkin dessert recipes that I'm itching to try out this weekend -- after I've come out of my inevitable Thanksgiving food coma, of course:

pumpkin whoopie pies with maple-marshmallow cream filling

pumpkin pie milkshakes 

baked pumpkin and sour cream puddings

a little weekend reading

I'm completely and totally obsessed with Mindy Kaling's new book. What are you reading right now? Here's what's next on my list:

My Booky Wook by Russell Brand
The Rules of Attraction by Bret Easton Ellis
The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins (I know, I know, I'm ridiculously late to this party)

It's OK

I'm pretty sure that I need this in every room of my apartment.
And probably at work.
