  1. Love this week review!! How did you like the eggwhite flax pizza? I made it a few weeks ago too and liked it a lot!
    And that PB Pupkin cake looks reeeeeally good. A must try!

  2. It’s 100+ degrees by you? Wow. Sounds like a great week with all the time with Joshua and Roxy. Nice!! We had crazy amounts of flooding around here last week, so it was a bit of a mess. I’m hoping the weather begins to turn around now and temps start going up (it’s still in the 50’s).

  3. sounds like you had a GREAT week, and i’m so glad about that! i tried my hand at a mug cake for the first time last night and didn’t love it, but i think it’s because it didn’t have enough peanut flour – i can’t get enough of that stuff 🙂

  4. The mint smoothie looks amazing — I can’t wait for the recipe! And OMG, between the pans and the yogurt, you got some awesome loot last week. Talk about mail win!

    As for your grandma status, honey, I’m right there with ya. I get really excited about things like going to bed early and getting a lot of sleep. I recall the days when I got excited about staying up late, but now? Not so much. Now I find myself thinking things like “Man, I cannot effing WAIT to go to bed. I’m really excited about sleeping.” Grandmas unite! 😉

  5. Thanks for linking up love. I totally appreciate it, and I love the bullet points!! It’s actually how I do my WIR posts too, and you did not bore me at all. You could never the bore me. Quite the contrary, since I would love to go to bed a few nights before 8:30 p.m. and play Go Fish. Sounds like ideal evenings to me.
    I know everybody is going to get excited over all the Chobani, but I’m drooling over those new pots and pans. Have you taken them for a test drive yet? I can’t wait to see what you create in them.

  6. Looks like a good week girl 🙂 i like all the baking, time with Joshua, and early bedtimes 😉 i need that last haha…no bracket filling out here but we pick the pens to bring the cup back home in a few weeks 😉

  7. So many good things going on. But girl, we didn’t talk about this job offer you got! I think we have more catching up to do- I know I have updates for you…good ones 🙂

  8. Bed before 8:30 is the norm around our house & I’m ok with it! Sleep is golden! Sounds like you had a fabulous week! I had a 3-day weeekend last weekend which made me happy more than you know!

  9. whoa! Your week was so busy! I am super jealous of the early bedtime. we can be grandmas together! I’m not quite as jeaous as the immense heat you have though!!

    I’m glad youdid what you thought was best on the job front, love ❤

  10. A very productive week indeed friend! I wish I could make myself get into bed before 8:30 every night…that would be SWEET! P.s. I want that smoothie & muffin NOW! 😉 SO yummy!

  11. Sounds like a great week! I don’t know how you deal with that heat…we literally got 4 inches of snow last night (it will be 70 and sunny this weekend though 😉 ).
    Having joe’s parents here all weekend was definitely the highlight of my week!

  12. Sounds like an awesome week! I’ve reached grandma status too… The BF has finally stopped responding with “already, it’s so early?!” when I text him goodnight 🙂

  13. Wow, that sounds like a pretty nice, if not busy, week! I’m glad. 🙂 And um, those pots and pans look suuuuper cool. I always get excited when it comes to kitchen stuff!
