Two Peas and Their Pod

This and That

We are starting a new feature on the blog called, “This and That.” In these posts we will share what we are loving around the internet, random life happenings, baby stuff, favorite finds, and whatever else we feel like rambling about. I say we, because yes, Josh will chime in every once in awhile. Hey, and maybe Caleb will even have something to say soon:) These posts are meant to be fun! So sit back, relax, and enjoy “This and That.”

1. I am currently obsessed with Trader Joe’s Sweet Potato Tortilla Chips. I brought a bag home from our California trip and I can’t stop eating them. They are especially tasty with Black Bean and Corn Salsa. I am going to be very sad when they are gone, which will be soon, since I can’t keep my hands out of the bag!

2. Our roses are in full bloom. They make me happy!

3. It’s Thursday. Normally, I would be looking forward to watching Grey’s tonight, but the season finale was last week and MY-OH-MY! I still can’t stop thinking about it. Why did they do that to us?

4. I want to eat this sandwich every day for lunch.

5. Is anyone going to see Battleship this weekend? We haven’t been to a movie since Caleb was born, but I am dying to see this movie. I honestly have no idea what it is about, but two words: Taylor Kitsch. He will always be Tim Riggins to me. He is my dream man. My one and only-besides Josh that is:) Oh-and did you see he cut his hair? I am still fond of his long locks, but I will take Riggs however I can get him:)

6. I’m not crafty, but if I was, I would make these DIY Chalkboard Conversation Bubble Cookie Jars.

7. We started giving Caleb his baths in our kitchen sink. Don’t worry-we clean it before and after:) He LOVES it!

8. My dad is visiting this week from Illinois. We are going to make his famous cinnamon rolls! He’s the best dad in the world. The end.

    I like this new feature, this first one is great! I looked at that sandwich, oh dear I need one soon! And Caleb having his bath in sink, too sweet, I use to bathe both mine in kitchen sink, I miss those days! I do enjoy your blog!

  6. Tanya Schroeder — May 24, 2012 @ 8:05 am

    Caleb is soooo adorable!! This is great!

  7. Patti Williams — May 24, 2012 @ 8:08 am

    I bathed both of my kids in the kitchen sink and now my grandsons bath there. When my now 19 yr old was a toddler he would get so dirty and sweaty playing outside that a sink bath was mandatory before lunch and nap. He hates when I tell that story.

  8. Mom24@4evermom — May 24, 2012 @ 8:10 am

    I can’t wait to try those chips, thank you!

    I loved bathing my kids in the sink–no aching backs, easy access to the water. It was awesome. :)

  9. Rachel Cooks — May 24, 2012 @ 8:13 am

    Love posts like this! And I cannot get over how cute Caleb is!

  10. suvi — May 24, 2012 @ 8:13 am

    Ok, now you made me want to know what happened in Grey’s…
    Caleb is adorable! I bathed mine in the sink too, it just seemed a lot easier than filling the whole bath tub.

    • Two Peas replied: — May 24th, 2012 @ 9:16 pm

      You will have to watch Grey’s! I didn’t want to spoil it for anyone:)

  11. Ahhhh…this will be fun!! I love babes-in-kitchen-sink photos, Caleb is such a cutie!

  12. Sharyn Dimmick — May 24, 2012 @ 8:20 am

    Adorable Caleb photos. And that rose is no slouch either.

  13. Awesome, I really enjoy this type of posts! And your boy is SO lovely!

  14. I love anything Trader Joe’s :) I’ll be in Salt Lake in October, so let me know if you need me to bring out a case of these chips, lol. but seriously!

    • Two Peas replied: — May 24th, 2012 @ 9:17 pm

      You are so kind! I might have to take you up on your offer:) I love TJ’s!

  15. Barbara — May 24, 2012 @ 9:24 am

    Love This and That! Great idea.

  16. Lori @ RecipeGirl — May 24, 2012 @ 9:38 am

    Nice to have “another” place to just say whatever, right? Like when I want to talk about books or Maxi dresses, lol… I can’t really do that on my food stream! You’ll love being able to have this section of your site. Random fun!

    • Two Peas replied: — May 24th, 2012 @ 9:21 pm

      I’ve had our On the Side page for awhile where I post about non food topics. This and That will be a weekly feature (hopefully) about all of the random things we want to talk about!

  17. Jennifer — May 24, 2012 @ 9:39 am

    Could those pictures of Caleb in the kitchen sink be any cuter?!

  18. Your son is so adorable!!!

  19. Amber — May 24, 2012 @ 9:41 am

    1. Those roses are gorgeous!
    2. Caleb is *adorable*, maybe one of the cutest babies ever!!

  20. Kristina — May 24, 2012 @ 9:41 am

    Great post! Love seeing the recipes and craft ideas! And of course, Caleb is adorable!

  21. Ben — May 24, 2012 @ 9:52 am

    The sweet potato tortilla chips sound intriguing. Do they add sweet potato to the corn, or are they just like sweet potato chips? Hmmmm…

    • Two Peas replied: — May 24th, 2012 @ 9:22 pm

      They are sweet potato corn tortilla chips. They are SO good!

  22. Gina @ Skinnytaste — May 24, 2012 @ 9:52 am

    Fun, and aww bath time with Caleb!!

  23. Kristin Thomas — May 24, 2012 @ 9:53 am

    I love the new “this and that” segment!!

  24. Peg — May 24, 2012 @ 10:02 am

    I discovered those chips whe I went to tj’s about 6 pm on cinco de mayo and all the other varieties of tortilla chips were gone. They were even out of tortillas so I couldnt make my own even if I wanted to. I’m so glad I got them.they are oh soooooooo delicious.

  25. Linda — May 24, 2012 @ 10:02 am

    Hope you enjoy the visit with your dad.

  26. Stephanie — May 24, 2012 @ 10:15 am

    My rose bushes are in full bloom as well! They’re so pretty. ^_^ I’m afraid to watch Battleship because the premise of the movie seems horrible. It has nothing to do with the game at all!

  27. RIGGINS!!!! :-)

  28. brandi — May 24, 2012 @ 10:20 am

    love this! those chips make me wish we had a Tj’s.

    we have yellow roses, too! they’re so pretty right now.

  29. What a fun idea, Maria! And that Caleb – could he be any cuter?!? What a doll.

  30. Jill — May 24, 2012 @ 10:30 am

    I am with you 100% on Tim Riggins. Loved that show!

  31. Marian (Sweetopia) — May 24, 2012 @ 10:32 am

    I like your new feature! xo

  32. I love these kinds of posts. :)

  33. Megan's Cookin' — May 24, 2012 @ 10:37 am

    I can see Caleb loves his bath. Have fun with your dad!:)

  34. Rebekah — May 24, 2012 @ 10:40 am

    Its nice getting more personal messages! I love your blog!

  35. Stacie Brown — May 24, 2012 @ 10:49 am

    Caleb is adorable!

  36. Ashley — May 24, 2012 @ 10:57 am

    My dad is visiting too!!! Although, he’s coming out to help us rebuild our porch…better make him some cinnamon rolls! :) I love posts like this and cuuuute Caleb!

  37. Love the new feature, I always like these types of posts. I’m not crafty (at ALL) either, but I love those cookie jars! And I love that you give Caleb baths in the kitchen sink! There are so many pictures my mom has of me sitting in the kitchen sink for a bath, just like the ones above. Love it!

  38. Averie @ Averie Cooks — May 24, 2012 @ 11:17 am

    Those chips are delicious. I know what you mean.

    Fun new feature! And have fun with your dad this weekend!

  39. Stephanie — May 24, 2012 @ 11:40 am

    I am with you on the Riggins thing – while Taylor Kitsch definitely looks better with long hair, there’s no denying that body!

  40. Fran — May 24, 2012 @ 11:45 am

    I started my food blog because I had so many recipes posted on my family blog. Kind of opposite but similar to your situation. Adorable baby in the sink alert!! I believe it is Avery brand labels come in chalkboard variety. I recently switched to all large clear majon-type jars for canisters and I want to label them with these. Very cute!
