This and That


1. Caleb is learning how to ski and he is loving it. He keeps asking me when he can go on the jumps…ha!

2. The Patriots are going to the Super Bowl and we are excited. Well, Caleb is still sad the Packers lost but he said he would cheer with the Patriots with us.

3. It was Caleb’s turn to get a haircut. He said he is a bat:)

4. Just ordered this book, has anyone read it?

5. We have Amazon Prime, but we have never watched any shows on Amazon? Do you have any favorites?

6. It has been an awesome ski year so far. In January, the Wasatch has received 200 inches of snow. 200 inches in one month, that is crazy! Hopefully, the snow continues and we don’t have an early melt off.

7. This accident happened in North Salt Lake. So scary. I am glad no one was hurt.


1. I baked a batch of mini chocolate chip cookies because I was thinking portion control, but my portion was six cookies. Oops!

2. We started watching the Crown on Netflix and now I know why it is so popular. It’s so good! If you haven’t started watching, start now!

3. Get your veggies! I am loving this cookbook.

4. Words to ban from your vocabulary.

5. I have a love/hate relationship with linen bedding. I LOVE it because it is super soft and I kind of like the natural, wrinkled look, but at the same time I can’t stand the wrinkled look. If it gets too wrinkly, it just looks messy. Any tips on how to keep linen bedding looking good? And ironing every day is not an option. I would rather have my bed look messy..ha!

6. So creative and SO pretty!

7. Mail art, so fun!

8. Dinnertime in 36 different homes.

9. Speaking of dinner, I ate this for dinner five nights in a row. Yep, it is that good.

10. A great game day dip! Pass me the chips!

11. Love this vase. Maybe if I buy it Josh will buy me flowers? 🙂

12. Perfect for Friday night pizza night!

  1. I have been an Amazon Prime member for a long time but haven’t taken advantage of all the free TV shows/movie perks. I just watched my first two episodes of Sneaky Pete (an Amazon exclusive) and it looks like it should be a good one!

  2. You are so lucky to live in Utah! Whenever we go out west to ski and see all the young ones zipping along the slopes we think what a healthy environment to grow up in!

  3. Buy the vase, it’s a steal then ask Josh to pick up flowers on his way home. He will get the hint. It isn’t a bad thing to ask for what you want or need. 30 years with my husband has taught me that.
    Your boys are adorable!!

  4. Loved the dinner time pictures.  Some sad and others happy.  My husband and I eat dinner at the table together and talk about our day or else watch what is on the news.  

  5. I keep hearing that The Crown is so good! I wonder if my husband would watch it with me. And I, too, have problems with portion control. Pretty much if there are cookies around, I am going to eat them until they are all gone!

  6. Oh my gosh, you absolutely have to watch The Man In The High Castle on Amazon, it is one of the best shows I have ever watched.

  7. Hang your linen bedding when it is damp. Then it will dry flat. No advice for wrinkles when in use other then hide/cover with duvets. Love love linen sheets. Where do you get yours?
    PS love your recipes!!

  8. The dinner time  photos made me appreciated how we were raised, dinner together almost every night of the week. Try to keep that going in my own house now.
