This and That


  • Daylight savings and St. Patrick’s Day in one week equals little sleep, at least at our house. Our boys were determined to catch the leprechaun so they stayed up late and woke up super early. They were bummed they didn’t catch him, but they got Lucky Charms for breakfast.
  • We watched Raya and the Last Dragon and it’s a great family movie.
  • Do you use GoodRx? It has saved us money on prescriptions several times. It is always worth checking.
  • Who’s ready for some March Madness? Did you fill out a bracket? We are cheering for Illinois.


  • New this week, my favorite pizza, a spring salad, and the best food ever!
  • Loving this dress.
  • We watched Yes Day with the boys. It was fun! I don’t know if I could do a full 24-hour Yes Day (ha!), but we have been doing “dates” with the kids and that has been fun. Josh takes one and I take one and we let them pick the activity. We do family dates sometimes too!
  • Time Well Spent. I am trying to be better at this.
  • Grey’s. WHY? I won’t share any spoilers, but I am just not ok with that show. I was so excited for it to be back on and now I don’t even know if I can watch it tonight. And A Million Little Things wasn’t that great either. My TV shows are letting me down, ha!
  • Dress or shirt?
  • Get your glow on!
  • How to make a beautiful spring floral arrangement.
  • One of our reader’s made every single recipe in our cookbook. She started a cookbook club with her friends and they made every single thing. I am still amazed. She sent me her book to sign and it was so fun to see all of her notes and dirty pages. It made my week!
  • Too cute!
  • Make your kid smile today. I guarantee they will make you smile right back.
  • I am so proud of my friend Jenica for starting a podcast to help people struggling with infertility. Find out more and listen to Fearless Infertility here.
  • Ordering these.
  • One of my favorite easy meals. We usually make this recipe once a week.
Get the best of the best!

  1. I know what you mean about your favorite shows. I only just found out that there are major changes over at NCIS and I’m not liking them either. As for Grey’s, I went back to the very beginning and have been binge watching about 2-3 a night, so that helps.

    1. It is frustrating, ha! Maybe I will start at the beginning. There are SO many seasons!

  2. I totally agree …Grey’s is sooooo frustrating. They are stuck in March/April 2020 and need a SERIOUS jump forward to Feb/March 2021. I appreciate they are addressing what we all have experienced over the last year but the show is stuck. If Meredith does not get off that freakin’ beach tonight, I will be screaming at the TV. I know Derrick appears again tonight…previews…so I think he needs to tell her to decide. I won’t even discuss the character that was eliminated …why???
    I also watch another medical show…New Amsterdam on NBC. They did an amazing job dealing with the pandemic. The story lines and script were exceptional and continue to be. It is now set in the present so what you see on the screen and the emotions characters express seem very relevant.
    LOve, love, love your Thursday posts…thanks for sharing with all your followers.

    1. I am right there with you! Get off the beach, ha! The whole show is frustrating right now, but of course I keep watching:)

      I am glad you enjoy our Thursday posts. They are fun for us to share:)
