Cookies and Closings

The week of October 13th was an exciting one to say the least! It was a busy and odd week that kinda ran together and felt super long at the same time. To sum it up there were cookies and we (finally!) closed on selling our house!!

We tried a new make your own pizza place on Wednesday called Pizza Press. It was delicious, but I would pick Blaze any day of the week!

On Thursday came some cookies we ordered! We had to try out some of Bang Cookies new flavors (and some oldies, but goodies). We waited till the weekend to try them, but they were delicious none the less. We wanted to try all the flavors so we only ate half each and froze the other half.

Thursday is also the day we got the text confirming that we had finished the process of selling our house! It was a very bittersweet moment. We obviously had loved our little home in the Valley and put a lot of effort into making it go from house to home, but we were very happy and relieved to have finished the selling process.

This was the first home we bought together and boy did we learn so much! It was quite the journey ❀️

I was also working Thursday and Friday so it was a bit of a blur!

Our weekend was kicked off on Saturday with a workout and breakfast at Denny’s. We both ordered the same veggie sizzlin’ skillets. and shared half of a pumpkin crackle cookie.


We walked around and enjoyed the gorgeous weather and walked into a Barnes and Noble. I headed into my favorite section which happened to have some really interesting and funny finds.


I also noted this book that I want to buy at some point!


We also did some grocery shopping so our Sunday selves would thank us πŸ™‚


After dropping off groceries and dropping in some laundry we headed out for a nice walk and some caffeine.


When we came back we went to TJ Maxx and got this gorgeous, fluffy blanket from TJ Maxx and some fun wrapping paper from Target!


By the time we came back we were in much need of a snack so I had some TJ’s Harvest Chili and sourdough toast. We may or may not have had half of this cinnamon whiskey crackle…by “we may” I mean we definitely did.


I finished up laundry while hubs wrapped up a present and we enjoyed some In n’ Out and more cookies for dinner!


I don’t know about you, but that is a pretty productive week for us! I hope you guys are having a great start to your weeks and I would love to know what you’ve been up to-let’s talk in the comments!

    Congrats on selling your home!!! Are you guys staying in the Valley or moving? πŸ™‚

    Also, that book looks interesting! I am so tempted to head out and look at it BUT I know that I need to finish the book I am currently reading πŸ˜‚I feel like I always have this problem! I start a book and enjoy reading it BUT then I see another interesting book and want to read that too! It’s such a problem!

    Anyway, congrats again!! Happy to see you treated yourselves to some delicious looking cookies!

      Yes! We tried that one too and it was our least favorite. The crust was soggy, but maybe it was an off day? I just can’t see the place without thinking of the soggy crust so I don’t know if I could stomach going back 🀒
      I love the salted chocolate chunk or is it chip. Either way it is a good classic cookie!
      I can’t wait to hear what you think about the cookies and pizza, but I would recommend trying them some time apart since they are both dairylicious 😁
      I hope you’re enjoying the weekend sweet girl!
