This and That



1. Batman had a birthday! We still can’t believe Maxwell is 2.

2. We ended up getting these kitchen booster seats for our boys. So far so good!

3. More than a million years old.

4. We have been watching a lot of Olympics. This video made me laugh.


5. Summer nights with ice cream, the best.



1. Maxwell’s 2nd birthday was a success! We celebrated with our favorite donuts, a trip to the park, presents, friends, and cake and ice cream. The birthday boy was all smiles on his special day.

2. We have been glued to the Olympics. I have bags under my eyes because I have been staying up way too late watching. I am addicted. The boys are obsessed too. They run around the house yelling, “GO USA!”


3. We went to the farmers market on Saturday and I wanted to buy ALL the produce. I love summertime!

4. I can’t stop making this.

5. This book is next up on my list. Has anyone read it yet?

6. This dessert screams summer!

7. Choose the right indoor plants. I want to buy indoor plants for our new house, but I am scared I will kill them all. Wish me luck!

8. I need this pie in my life.

9. Say yes to the dress.

10. I am dying over these bowls. WANT!

11. Pass me a plate of these please!

12. We are going to McCall and Boise, Idaho this weekend. If you have any suggestions on what we should do or eat, let us know! And make sure you follow on snapchat, twopeasandpod, and Instagram. I am playing around with Instagram stories and still doing snapchat. I probably won’t be able to keep up with both, but I am still trying to figure it out. Which one are you loving?

  1. I love reading these posts. I had to comment and tell you to eat at The Dish in downtown Boise. The food is fresh, delicious, and was so beautiful I was taking pictures of everyone’s order and sending them to my husband who wasn’t with us that trip. So good!

  2. I’m obsessed with house plants, I want to buy more every time I see one. Jade plants are really easy to take care and do really well without much fuss. I’ve also had luck with bamboo, you don’t even need soil, you can put them in a glass container with pretty stones. You could also check out crotons if you want a more leafy plant, I’ve had mine for 3 years now with no problems, I just water it twice a week and replant it once a year.

  3. Hey y’all great list! Glad Maxwell had a fun birthday! Love the dress Maria and Love the pics of the boys! They are so cute!

  4. McCall is great! We love living here and when I want a treat I go to Stacey Cakes.  Her chocolate tart with crackle on top is amazing. Also Pueblo Lindo is quality Mexican dishes  and  fast service.  Good veggie options, too.  Make sure to take a hike in Ponderosa State Park or rent bikes and ride around it. And of course Ice Cream Alley serves mountain sized scoops. Yum!

    1. Also Big City Coffee and Cafe on Grove St in Boise is fantastic.  Large and delicious breakfast portions and great scones and pumpkin chai muffins. Fun atmosphere too. 

  5. Farmer’s Market in Boise is such a delight! Don’t pass by Blue Feather Bakery’s fresh baked hand held pies and Leialoha’s Lemonade for a fresh squeezed lemonade. Have fun 🙂

  6. Love the pic of Maxwell in his costume – I have watched some of the Olympics but not as much as I want to. I love the dress that Maria picked out – it’s cute and very summery – which is great for the heat of August!

  7. I live south of Caldwell Idaho  and there is a fabulous restaurant in the town of Caldwell, it’s called Horsewoods. It’s out of this world! Let me know if you go! It will not disappoint, he serves our grass fed beef and pork.

  8. I have a huge bowl of cherry and yellow tomatoes, not counting the ones we have been eating. Any ideas for what I can do with them before they go bad? Help please
