This and That


  • I took the boys sledding and it was a beautiful day.
  • The boys were bummed the Packers lost, but now we are all cheering for the Buccaneers. It should be an exciting Super Bowl.
  • This is awesome.
  • I am looking for a new podcast to listen to, any suggestions?


  • New this week, an easy sauce you will love, a healthy salad, a one pot meal, and a favorite weeknight dinner.
  • I made these cookies on Sunday and put some of the dough in the freezer for later. I like these cookie scoops because they come in several different sizes. Great for scooping and freezing cookie dough!
  • These are darling! The boys might not appreciate them, but I am getting them anyways, maybe these too:)
  • I love the mini hearts.
  • My boys love chicken and dumplings, but I think I need to try this twist.
  • I use these for my flour, oats, sugar, and more! I just ordered a few more:)
  • I am excited for this book, anyone else?
  • I recommend eating chips. What are your favorite chips? Tortilla chips for me…with salsa and guacamole.
  • Such a good skirt. Great price too!
  • Yesterday, was National Chocolate Cake Day and I really wanted to bake my favorite chocolate cake (the recipe is in our cookbook and it’s life changing), but I ran out of time. Now, I can’t stop thinking about it. It needs to happen soon!
  • Vintage pullover and sweats. Need!
  • Monday is February, how did that happen? 2021 is off to a swift start…and maybe that is a good thing:)
Get the best of the best!

  1. Josh – what subjects are you interested in listening to? My husband listens to podcasts all the time, so I might be able to come up with suggestions if I know the topics .

  2. Just made your PB chocolate chip cookies this weekend but I used smashed M&M’s instead of the chips. I found a bag of Halloween M&M’s in my chocolate stash and rather than eat them, I put them to good use in the cookies. They ended up as a treat for the guys who clear my snow…perfect timing as we had a storm the following day.
    I bought that heart plate…so cute… but I missed the bowls. I am thinking I now have to order a couple of those as well.
    I am rooting for the Buccs as well. It is a long shot but maybe, just maybe TB!2 will earn ring #7!
    BTW…sweet video clip on the Internet of Tom greeting his eldest son, Jack, after the game ended.

  3. Josh, try Reply All. It’s about the relationship between the internet and people. So good; sometimes funny, sometimes serious, always interesting.

  4. It has been entirely too long since I had a new Kristin Hannah book in my hands… I am so thrilled for the new one!
    Also… GO CHIEFS! 😉
