This and That

Happy Thursday! We are on spring break, but we didn’t forget about This and That! We love sharing what we’ve been up to, what we are loving, what we are cooking, and MORE! If you have any questions for us, leave a comment! We love hearing from you! We hope you enjoy this week’s post! Have a great day!


  • Well, Kansas pulled off the big March Madness win. Not my team, but it was a good game.
  • We are on spring break and having fun. We’ve played a lot of baseball, tennis, and went on a few bike rides.
  • Maria’s dad is here and we helped him get hearing aids from Earlux, a virtual hearing clinic. They sent the hearing aids to the house and we met with his audiologist virtually to get them programmed via video call. His doctor can adjust the hearing aids all remotely so his follow up fine tunings have been so easy! We’ve been very pleased with the customer service, care, and support. They are an awesome company. If you or a loved one needs hearing help, we highly recommend them. Check them out here, you can get a free consult and $200 off.
  • The most beautiful place in every state.

    1. Thanks for the feedback. The format is pretty much the same, we still do the his and hers. What don’t you like?

  1. Tennis is my go to sport. You can play it for life. I play with some people in their 80’s!
    Love hearing about your spring break!

  2. Love the photo pf your boys with your dad…Caleb’s hand clutching your dad’s sleeve is so sweet.
    As always, thanks for all the tips and links. I think I will be spending a little money on jewelery this weekend.
    Enjoy the remainder of your break!

    1. Thanks Linda! He lives in Illinois and my step brother is a professor at Purdue and gave him the sweatshirt. He is really an Illini fan:)

  3. Hi Maria – Any favorite Made by Mary pieces? I love the crescent bar necklace & wear it constantly. Would love to add something new to my collection.

    1. I love so many pieces! The poppy choker, half moon necklace, bead necklaces, any of the earrings (they don’t hurt my ears after wearing them all day), and her rings are fun!
