Welcome to another wonderful weekend! We’re here, we’re doing this thang called life (with lots of coffee involved) and we’re here to celebrate getting through another week.

Grain Free Almond Flour Chocolate Sugar Cookies -- these easy one bowl cookie recipe can be made into cut out shapes or rolled into dough balls! Topped with a silky velvet chocolate frosting.

This week was amazing because I simply spent time catching up on LIFE. This means my taxes, financial planning, website creation and so much more. We’ve been SO busy working on projects (including Ambitious Home), and other behind the scenes jazzy stuff for all of you that I can’t wait to share SO SOON. Mainly I’m happy to feel a little more organized and calm going into this weekend.

This weekend Tony and I are going to a MURDER MYSTERY party. I literally have no idea what is involved but only know that I need to show up dresses as my character. We’ll see how good of a job I do at that. Have any of you ever been to murder mystery party?

Next week is Valentine’s Day and if you don’t have a partner, it’s time to treat yourself to a dinner with your friends, a little self love and above all chocolate.

Speaking of chocolate, we’re FINALLY doing another Facebook Live on our Facebook page this coming Monday 2/12 at 3pm CST. And guess what we’re making? THIS CHOCOLATE CAKE. OMG. Mark your calendars!
