This and That


  • Today is a big day, it’s Maxwell’s birthday! He wanted these for his special breakfast. Happy birthday to our little dude!
  • The boys have been “camping” in the backyard. I set up the big tent and they have been playing out there every day and we made s’mores.
  • Has anyone seen the Jungle Cruise? The boys want to see it.
  • Such a great story.
  • The chickens we got this spring started laying eggs this week and the boys go on an egg hunt every morning.


  • New this week, an easy salad, a one pot meal, and an easy summer side!
  • We are celebrating Maxwell’s birthday today. I can’t believe my baby is 7. He requested the chocolate celebration cake in our cookbook and we are all excited about that. It’s the best!
  • A few good fashion finds: one, two, three, four!
  • I already finished season 2 of Outer Banks. It was so good, maybe even better than the first season. I am going to watch White Lotus next.
  • Perfect summer dresses for vacation or the pool, one and two! Love these slides too!

  • Hmmm, I am not so sure about this.
  • Pretty and delicious!
  • Our friend Kelley’s new cookbook has the boys excited for ski season. I am excited about all of the good food inside:)

  • What are you never spending money on again?

  1. Happy birthday to Maxwell! Just wait until your baby is 27 (like mine). I know people tell you this all the time, but it goes by so fast. Cherish those boys and this age. Have a great rest of your summer.

  2. Happy Birthday to Maxwell…you little Leo! It is my birthday today too but I am MUCH older than 7 years!
    I hope he enjoys his chocolate cake. I will have a piece in spirit with him.
    FYI…I tried the mayo scramble eggs last night. I was both skeptical and curious. Much to my surprise, they were delicious and super easy. I used olive oil mayo and melted some cheese on the top, I don’t think I will make scrambled eggs any other way from now on

  3. STRETCHING AND SUNSCREEN! WHY did nobody emphasize the vital importance of those two things when I was young? There is so much damage to my lower half (thanks to a subtle, inherited foot deformity) that could have been mitigated by daily stretching if only I had known. Hopefully I discovered sunscreen and hats young enough to avoid looking like the Crypt Keeper, but we’ll see.
