This and That

1. Caleb is officially crawling. He is moving all over the place. Good thing we got the baby gate up in time because he crawls right to it and shakes like crazy!

2. How cute are these S’mores Pops? I will tell you, SUPER cute!

3. Cupcakes always make a great gift and here is a fun and easy way to package them!

4. Tim Riggins makes folding laundry a whole lot better. Just saying! πŸ™‚

5. I am currently loving Chobani’s 0% Pomegranate Greek yogurt. I am usually a plain yogurt kind of gal, but this is hitting the spot. And it is so good with my Coconut Granola.

6. We are traveling to Seattle for BlogHer Food today. I am bringing along Bread Alone for my reading pleasure. I hope it’s good! It’s been awhile since I’ve read a book…well, I’ve read baby books and cookbooks:) I need to get back in the habit.

7. I always load my bag with snacks when we travel. I’m not a fan of airport food. A few staples are: baby carrots, apples, trail mix, pretzels, granola bars, and a few homemade cookies. Oh-and Skittles and/or Sour Patch kids for Josh:) What snacks do you like to pack when traveling?

8. Best news EVER-Utah is finally getting a Trader Joe’s! I think TJ’s has been reading my blog posts:) If you beg them, they will come…ha!

  1. Have fun at the conference! I’m a total packer for the airport too- baby carrots and apples always make the stash. I usually bring homemade bars too. And sandwiches for Josh!

  2. We will be traveling out of the province this summer summer and I always hit the bulk food store first to pick up items like honey roasted soy nuts, yogurt covered raisins/peanuts, oriental mix, dried fruit, and whatever healthy-ish things catch my eye.

    I am just now getting back into reading books–REAL books, not just Clifford, Franklin and Critter! At the moment I am reading Bringing Up Boys by James Dobson. I enjoyed his Bringing up Girls first.

    Have a safe trip!

  3. Too funny. I always pack skittles or sour patch kids for Chris too! TJ’s announced they’re finally coming to Colorado as well! An hour away from me, but still! I typically stock up when I’m back home in Ohio. Have fun in Seattle!

  4. Hey Maria,

    Robyn, from Bird on a Cake is my former mission companion and awesome friend! I am so excited that you spotlighted her cupcake packaging idea on your blog! Have a great time in Seattle.

  5. TJ’s Falafel Chips-oh my goodness, new favorite snack!! I love that place. And if you are looking for a great read, try I Am the Messanger by Markus Zusak-amazing book!
    Have fun on your trip πŸ™‚

  6. Yay, Trader Joe’s! The cupcake idea packaging is really clever. When I travel, I always carry my Camelback water bottle, which I fill up after security and Luna bars. I love them, and they’re easy to eat while walking, sitting, running… πŸ™‚

  7. Have a safe trip and fun at BlogHerFood! Wish I were going!

    For our road trips, we always pack granola and/or granola bars (homemade!), homemade chocolate chip cookies, some fruit, pretzels, and a cooler with sandwiches, water, and Diet Coke.

  8. Bread Alone is a great book! I read it a few years ago and really enjoyed it, it’s quick and fun, and turned into one of my favorites! πŸ™‚

  9. I hope you love Bread Alone! Judi Hendricks’ books are wonderful. And, as a Californian, I wish you great congratulations on your TJ’s. I don’t know where I’d shop without them!

  10. Please think hard before you recommend packaging cupcakes like this: plastic is one of the most toxic and environmentally expensive products humans produce. While the plastic cup and cellophane create a pretty picture in a photograph, degrading plastic creates islands of floating trash in the Pacific ocean and kills fish and other marine life. There is no responsible way to recycle plastic (except for two specific types) and much of it ends up in toxic dumps in Asian and African countries. That is not pretty.

  11. Thanks so much, Maria!!! πŸ™‚ Oh my goodness, TJ’s…Tim Riggins…and crawling?!?!? I can hardly believe how time has flown with little Caleb. You have such a beautiful family!

    Have a wonderful, wonderful time at BlogHer Food!!

  12. I am so excited that Trader Joes is coming to SLC!!! I already have visions of myself tossing a cooler into the car so that I can pick up nifty cold or frozen items that I haven’t been able to bring back from California when I make my pilgrimages to TJ’s!
