This and That


  • We got haircuts! It was over a year for me and about 9 months for the boys. I think Maria is the happiest out of us all, ha.
  • Maxwell is a little chicken whisperer. Every day he plays with the chickens and all four sit on his shoulder. It’s pretty awesome.
  • This is our friend! So crazy he won!
  • Tomorrow is going to be our last day on the slopes for this ski season. It’s been a fun year.
  • The boys would love to see this happen!
  • I need to order one of these.


  • New this week, a classic dessert, one of my favorite lunches, and a treat for lemon lovers!
  • We had a good spring break and Easter weekend. It was hard to get back to school and work this week. I am getting excited for summer.
  • Cute sneakers. I love wearing them with jeans, shorts, and dresses.
  • I am looking forward to reading this book.
  • Spring clean your life! Some good ideas if you need a little reset.
  • Speaking of cleaning, I have been trying to use more clean products in our home and I am loving Branch Basics. Use the code TWOPEAS for 15% off all Starter Kits, except the trial kit. I love that they send you everything you need to clean every area of the home and the ingredients are safe and clean. Plus, you can reuse the bottles.
  • I bought this dress, it’s super comfortable. A few other cute dresses that are great prices: one, two, three.
  • Beautiful!
  • Skincare, splurge or save?
  • The prettiest top. I love this one too!
  • I started watching The O.C., I never watched it when it was on TV. Pretty much your typical teen drama, but it’s entertaining enough to watch while I work:) I am still watching This is Us, I used to be team Sophie for Kevin but Madison is growing on me. That teaser at the end was interesting:)
  • I made this last night and I can’t wait to eat the leftovers for lunch.

  1. Hi Maria,
    I’ve barely been online in months let alone my own blog but couldn’t sleep and opened my phone and yours popped up in my email.

    Your link to spring cleaning my life resonated with me so well that I’m literally printing it off once out of bed. We get so wrapped up in our day to day life that sometimes we just need a kick in the pants. This article did just that.

    I’m so glad I couldn’t sleep. This will give me a jump start to where I need to be going. Thanks for that.

    Oh and also, your little men have grown up so much. They are darling, and quite handsome.

    Enjoy your day!

  2. Love the haircuts. Made the breakfast casserole with the bacon and hash browns for Easter. We agree with Josh, great. Look forward to Thursdays to receive Two Peas and Their Pod.

  3. I am so excited to read “Finding Freedom” as well. I saw a wonderful interview with the author on the Today Show that had me in tears. It is worth checking out on the website if you missed it.
    Can you believe Meredith is FINALLY off that darn beach…and Maggie is engaged. YAY!!!
    Maybe things will be looking up as the show winds down for this season? I hope so.
    That Anthropologie top is great but I like the dress prices much more!
    You guys look very handsome with their spring haircuts.
    Have a great weekend.

    1. I will have to look up the interview, thanks! And FINALLY, I am going to watch tonight with hopes of it being good, ha!
