Bacon, pineapple and feta on my whole wheat crust. Hands down our favorite pizza topping combination.

Best thing I ate or drank this week:

Prosciutto-wrapped bison burgers with blue cheese. Recipe to come this weekend.

Best workout of the week:

My marathon, two-hour session at the gym on Sunday. 3 mile run, 15 minutes rowing machine, 30 minutes walking, 30 minutes circuit training, 15 minutes stretching. I burned 1,044 calories.

Best deal of the week:

This hat. For $1.59, shipped. Please, please, please follow Money Saving Mom to get notified of deals like these. I scoop up so much awesome stuff because of her posts! And this hat is SO warm and SO cute.

Best of the Internet for the week:

This recipe from Paula Deen. I recommend reading the reviews for a good laugh.

Appropriately, I shared this with Mama Pea on Twitter and she was most appreciative.

Favorite blog post of the week:

Angela’s post over at Oh She Glows with a delicious-looking recipe for No Bake Chocolate Peanut Butter Chews. Um. Yum! Need to make these this weekend.

Probably the same for everyone—finding out about the shootings in Arizona.

Snowwwwww daysssss!

Climbing a tree.

Triumph of the week:

Organizing my utensil drawer. Seriously, this makes me SO happy. And I purged so many unused gadgets.

Seeing so many people react positively to this self-portrait by Babyface. Awesomesauce, right? I have a fantastically talented husband. And it makes me all giddy and proud to see him all giddy and proud.

    Also, dammit, that site is enough to make me hop on the couponing bandwagon. She’s so organized with how she presents the deals! I signed up for a ton of them. After spending $80 at the grocery store tonight and feeling like I got very little, I have to do something.

Comment Policy:I want BTHR to be a positive and upbeat place. Disagree all you want, but I trust you’ll do so in a civil and mature manner. Anytime folks get together in a place on the internet things can get a little bit sticky. I love that all of you guys are diverse and have differing opinions and I hope you’ll speak those for all to see! That being said, any comments that are spammy, snarky or full of personal attacks will be deleted without warning. .
