Baking, Shopping, and Good Food

I am most definitely linking up with Becky for Treat Yourself Tuesday today because I have been treating myself quite a bit lately.

This weekend I treated myself to time in the kitchen. I baked up a couple of loaves of gluten-free bread using brown rice flour and almond flour.


And I made these amazing snack bars!

I enjoyed a relaxing evening with two calming essential oils: gentle baby and lavender. I also treated myself to a couple new ones: ylang ylang which smells AMAZING and citronella to try diffusing when we are sitting out on the deck to help keep the skeeters away.

On Saturday Dana and I treated ourselves to lunch at The Bulldog in Minneapolis. We were both in the mood for a good burger (typical these days) and Becky recommended this place for amazing burgers, so we thought we would go check it out.

Patty melt for me! So good!

I treated the babes to a new outfit from Target. It was on the clearance rack for $5 and I just couldn’t resist.

I also treated myself to some maternity clothes and some looser fitting regular clothes. Besides pants and shorts, I should be set for a while! I stocked up on dresses!


Last night I was treated by my brother as he cooked up an awesome stir-fry dinner for me and the fam! As much as I love to cook, I love it even more when someone else cooks for me!

Thank you Becky for hosting the link-up!

How did YOU treat yourself this week?!

  1. These all sound like perfect ways to treat yourself! I treated myself to some pre-natal yoga and a pedicure on Sunday and yesterday, I got a super comfy maxi dress to accommodate the growing belly!

      I got my PinkBlushMaternity order yesterday! I love everything! I just have to make one return because the shoulders are a little too snug.

      It is important to listen to your body! I’m sure it’s thanking you!

  2. Mmm… The Bulldog! I miss that place 🙂 I also miss my oils that are at home while I’m traveling. I cannot wait to get back to my lavender on Sunday night!
