Happy Sunday everyone! There were so many wonderful posts linked up this week at Thrifty Thursday–more than 225 of them! I love seeing all the ideas and it gets harder and harder to narrow it down all the time. Here were just a few of my favorites this week….

Nothing says fall like pumpkin bread! I even made my own skinny version with the girls yesterday. Of course our all-time favorite is the Starbucks version so we might have to try this Copycat Starbucks Pumpkin Loaf from The First Year Blog next time around.

Normally I’m a little wary of any chocolate chip cookie claims, but I have actually tried these Best Ever Chocolate Chip Cookies from Life in Grace and they really, truly are the best I’ve ever had. Try them. You’ll see.

I also loved this great idea for a Laundry Room Counter for Less than $40 at I Love to Gossip. We did something similar in our tiny laundry room and it has made such a big difference!
