Don’t let the name fool you. These cookies look absolutely incredible!! Chickpea flour is actually very sweet!

These Chickpea Flour Chocolate Chip Cookies are addicting in the best way. They're dairy free, gluten free, grain free and may just be the best gluten free cookies ever.

Top 3 Lows

1. My grandmother (paternal) passed away on Sunday. That’s why the past few days have been very crazy around here, but my Dad and I are doing fine! Being in a nursing home and a sudden battle with pneumonia was something her body couldn’t fight, but she’s at peace now with God.
2. The amount of work I have for my online class. Yup, as soon as the first one ended this second one started! It’s all good though, I’m doing them to stay on track for graduation.
3. Not being able to see Cal again till August…crossing fingers that it will be sooner!

Top 3 Highs

1. Spending quality father-daughter time with my Dad, even if it that just meant doing yard work outside in the heat!
2. Cousins lunch at Grandma’s! One of my cousins is headed off to West Point Academy this Sunday so this was our “goodbye” to  him. Such a fun and delicious afternoon, and grandma’s first selfie!

3. Waking up in MY room every morning. Being home has been great! I love how much natural light my room gets from the sun in the morning, and it makes waking up so much more wonderful for me! 🙂

Top 3 Instagrams

1. Wise words from Cassey, of Blogilates. Never give up! EVER!!!

2. Anyone who knows Sally’s blog knows she has 2 adorable dogs, Jude and Franklin (he’s the little one). This picture from her Instagram made my heart melt. How cute are they?!

3. Monique of Ambitious Kitchen and Sarah of Broma Bakery just came back from Europe with Windstar Cruises and I cannot get over how gorgeous this picture is from France. I miss traveling so much!

  1. So sorry about your grandma, sending love! Sleeping in your own bed is one of the best feelings. I’d say one of my top travel destinations right now is Hawaii.


  2. Very sorry about your loss, but I am so happy to read you guys are doing okay. I love being able to get together with all my cousins.We don’t get to do it often enough.
    Online classes are the pits, no doubt. They are so much work! It’s funny because I never took a class I was really interested in online, so that made it even harder.
    Have a great, restful weekend!


  3. I really want to visit Australia or Hawaii when the triathlon championships are there. I don’t want to compete, but I want to see everything! I will pray for your family in this time of loss ❤


  4. So sorry about your grandma 😦 Always here if you need anything ❤ Yay for being in your own bed though. Seriously best feeling! I need to check out that article by Robyn. Hoping you have a great weekend babe!
