This is seriously the most comfy, soft cardigan EVER. You must get one immediately. I still need some new Fall work clothes. Any suggestions?

I thought I'd share this delicious recipe with you all. My mom visited me 2 weeks ago and I made these for a breakfast treat. They were super easy to make and we both loved them! They're traditional pumpkin muffins, but with some nuts added (which makes everything better in my opinion).
In a large bowl mix eggs, sugar, pumpkin, oil, and water. Combine flour, cinnamon, baking soda, baking powder, and salt. Stir into pumpkin mixture; mix well. Fold in nuts. Fill greased or paper-lined muffin cups three-fourths full. Bake at 350 degrees for 20-25 minutes or until muffins are done. Cool on wire rack. Enjoy!
