Weekending {4/27} & a recipe!

Happy Monday ladies!

I am joining the party late today because I had a final exam this morning (only one more left). I am  sitting on my couch now, eating a large slice of homemade cinnamon bread and trying to gear up for some more studying.

Obviously, this weekend was filled with lots of study time, but a few bright spots!

Saturday was a special day. April 25th, anyone?

On Sunday, AR and I went shopping for mother's day gifts and cards at our my favorite place: Paper Source. We picked up some adorable gifts that I will share later, but also snagged this doormat.
On the fourth of july last year, my doormat went missing and I was distraught. It was seriously a $12 mat from Target, but I was so upset that someone might have taken it!

Luckily, AR found this adorable one for me, and I am thrilled.

On Sunday night, I made a batch of roasted chickpeas for us to munch on while AR cooked dinner. These have become my favorite snacks and i love that they are full of protein and flavor. 

I just rinsed and drained two cans of chick peas and dried them with paper towels. I placed them on a large baking sheet, topped them with 1 tablespoon of oil and a generous sprinkle of cajun seasoning, and roasted them at 400* for 35 minutes. So so good! 

For my next batch, I want to try topping them with cinnamon and sugar :)

How was your weekend?


Thanks for hosting, BLovedBoston and Champagne & Suburbs!


  1. I've seen roasted chickpea recipes floating around and I need to try one out! I love chickpeas. Good luck with your finals!

  2. I had no idea it was THAT easy to make roasted chickpeas! Definitely going to be trying that soon. And with cinnamon sugar topping? Yes please!

  4. I agree, what an easy roasted chickpea recipe!! I'm constantly looking for fun snacks that I can make!

  5. Hi Hannah,

    I just stumbled upon your blog and wanted to reach out and say hello! First and foremost, I think you are a girl after my own heart with those roasted chickpeas! I make a batch every week for snacking and topping salads, but it has never dawned on me to make a cinnamon sugar batch! I will be whipping those up very soon. I can't wait to discover more on your blog (I love the name!). My co-blogger and I would love to have you check us out sometime over at, where we dish about mindful beauty, style and living tips. :)
