#LoveAt425 with Papa Murphy's #FlavorsofSummer

I was compensated for this review of Papa Murphy’s and their Flavors of Summer Sweepstakes. All opinions and statements remain 100% my own. #FlavorsofSummer #Ad 

Papa Murphy's is a well known name in our home. It's a tradition for us to purchase from them on Valentine's Day and Halloween, along with other normal times of the year in-between. I was thrilled and honored when I was asked to be apart of this sharing because we love the company and want to share more about them with ya'll today! 

Currently, Papa Murphy’s Pizza is running a “Flavors of Summer” Sweepstakes on Facebook right now. They're are giving away a $25,000 backyard makeover to one lucky winner! Users visit a tab on their page, choose if you prefer their pizza on the grill or in the oven, and then you're entered into the sweepstakes. You can also spin a pizza wheel for instant prizes, like a S’Mores Dessert Pizza or coupons for $ off a purchase. 

We have a nice back side yard property, and currently this fun Little Tikes Trampoline is the only thing in our yard. I'm entering this giveaway daily in the chances I'd actually win, and the very thing I'd want to do with the $25,000 check is to get a fence! With four little kids running around and a hyper German Shepherd, a fence would be so wonderful! While our neighborhood isn't super busy, we're at the main entrance so we see a lot of traffic. Because of this (among other reasons), we don't allow our kids outside alone, but a fence would give a little more security. 

Something else my husband and I would love to do with our backyard is a total makeover involving some type of patio and fire pit. I saw this above photo on Pinterest and it is wonderful. We have a sliding glass door that leads out to our backyard and I'd love to have a nice big patio, a room to put to put our grill, a nice area for a big family table, and then another spot for a fire pit to enjoy on those cool Summer nights. Doesn't that sound magical?!

I wanted to show the examples of the heart shaped pizza and jack-o-lantern pizza I mentioned at the beginning of my post. It became a tradition around here and we buy them every Valentine's Day and Halloween. It's a fun inexpensive way to "eat out", have something fun with our girls, and enjoy two special little holidays. 

Papa Murphy’s is the world’s largest take ‘n bake pizza chain so let's talk about "take 'n' bake" for a moment. Once you find a local Papa Murphy's resturant, you can walk in, look at their nice variety menu, and then they make the pizza fresh right in front of you. There's different crusts like gluten free, thin, and stuffed, special pizzas, lots of toppings, and desserts for you to choose from, but once you've decided your meal, you take him hope and pop it in the oven following their instructions and then you have a freshly cooked pizza with fresh toppings and best of all..... no mess for you! It comes on a special piece of board that goes right in the oven so you don't even need to dirty a pizza pan! It's fun for the kids to watch them make the food and its fun for parents because it's less mess for us and fun with our kids! 

During the Summer months we always want to be outside, so one more great option with Papa Murphy's is that you can grill their pizzas outside! No one wants a hot house from an oven, so why not enjoy the fresh air outside, let the kids run off some energy, and cook your pizza outside?! You can find full grilling directions from Papa Murphy's here, and this is something I really want to try soon! 

One other thing I like is that they offer call ahead ordering. Some locations you can now order online, but since we have a Papa Murphy's just one mile up the road from us, we've used the call ahead option several times for my husband to pick up on the way home. It's similar to ordering over the phone for pick up with a normal pizza place, but you don't have to wait for it to cook. They make it, wrap it up, and it's ready to go once you arrive.
