  • It’s March and that means we are at the tail end of ski season. We are going to try and get as many days in as we can.
  • Sibling love. Our boys still hug every day and it’s the best. It never gets old.
  • It’s been a year since I’ve gotten a haircut and I am actually liking my long hair. I think I will cut it when I can donate it.
  • It’s All-Star weekend and we are looking forward to watching.


  • New this week, a breakfast favorite, a quick and easy dinner, a great recipe for getting kids (and adults) to eat broccoli, and a recipe I always have in the fridge or freezer.
  • My dad got his vaccine so he drove out to spend time with us. We really missed him and are so glad he is here, the boys are on cloud nine! He has already spoiled us with cinnamon rolls🙂
  • If you are looking for new bedding, this brand is my favorite! I feel like I am sleeping at a fancy resort every night, but in my own bed. Use the code MARIA20 for 20% until the end of March.
  • This skirt is a must for spring and summer.
  • Our cookbook is on sale for $17!! Hurry and get a copy or a few for gifts. I am not sure how long the sale will last.
  • Is anyone watching “Stanley Tucci: Searching for Italy?” I want to start it, I am just nervous it will make me really hungry and sad I can’t go to Italy, ha!
  • Under $20, such a good deal!
  • Love the texture and great colors too!
  • I am still drinking one of these every day to get my greens. They are launching three new flavors today (7 am MST)! If you want to try them, use TWOPEAS20 at checkout! I’ve tried them all and they are all good:)
  • I need a slice.
  • Love the green color for spring!
  • Going to make these!
  • This has been my lunch this week.
  • Love the simple, classic look.

Get the best of the best!

  1. Stanley Tucci!!
    We love the show!! We have seen Roma & Napoli. The people he meets with are “real”….the food amazing…yes, it makes us sad…will we ever get there? Some of his filming has been done during the pandemic, tho’…..just fascinating locations & people…homemade mozzarella, San Marzano tomatoes, delicacies created by the poor class of Italians years ago that are such specialties today…..and so much more….watch it Maria

  2. LOVE the Stanley Tucci: Searching for Italy. I want to travel and eat everything he did!!!! Also, cannot wait for your ugly cookie recipe!!!!

  3. “Stanley Tucci: Searching for Italy” will definitely make you want to travel again. And, cook anything Italian. It’s a lovely break from reality.

  4. Hi Maria – I’m looking for new sheets. One question, do the Boll & Branch sheets wrinkle in your opinion especially along the top edge? I have no interest in ironing. 😉 Thank you!

    1. I never iron them and I think they are fine:) If you want them perfect, you can iron or steam them a little, but I never do. I think they wash great. Just don’t leave them in a ball when they come out of the dryer. I try to take them right out and put them on the bed and they are great. I have heard if you leave them a little damp and then make the bed right away it helps with wrinkles too. I LOVE the sheets though. Getting into bed every night is my favorite:)
