alpine lake hike.


  • It is scorching hot in Utah. I think yesterday we got up to 105. How is the weather where you are?
  • For Labor Day weekend, we went up to Park City and stayed at the Pendry, which is right by where we ski. It got me excited for ski season.
  • It’s corn. The song has been in my head all week because Maria used it in this video.
  • The new Broncos are awesome. The boys really want us to get one. We might test drive one for fun.
  • The NFL is back tonight. We will be watching.
family hike


  • New this week, a fun snack and a quick and easy dinner!
  • We spent the weekend at the Pendry Park City and had the best time. Beautiful mountains, lots of delicious food, pool time, and family time!
  • ABLE has so many new items for fall. I am loving: this dress, this sweater, this top, this jacket, and this crossbody (it’s the perfect size). I also have a special discount code, use TWOPEAS15 for 15% off!
  • Our cookbook is 3 years old. Crazy! Do you have a copy?
  • Love this top and these boots.
  • Be kind.
  • What are your favorite fall books? Leave a comment! I need something new to read.
  • I love all of the colors.
  • I want a scoop.
  • This hoodie is so good.
  • If it’s too hot to cook or bake, but you are still craving all things fall, make these.
  • I am getting my haircut today and I am thinking about doing something new. I don’t color my hair so maybe a new style or cut? Or maybe I will just get a trim, that is easy, ha!
Get the best of the best!

  1. Three books I really liked recently were “The Book Women of Troublesome Creek” and “The Lost Apothecary” and “West with Giraffes”.

  2. It is HOT HOT HOT in California too! So hot yesterday that even the birds were not tweeting. Great items here – I have been eyeing the same J Crew top the past week, and I have those boots in black from a couple of years ago, LOVE them! Thanks for the fanny pack recommendation as I have been looking for a smallish one for hiking!!

  3. Book Lovers By Emily Henry, Nora Goes Off Script by Annabel Monaghan if you are looking for something in the romance genre.

  4. Good book – 3 Sisters, 3 weeks, 3 Countries and still talking by Elizabeth Moore Kraus

    I enjoyed reading about the sisters on their journey to Ireland, England and Scotland. A beautifully-written memoir filled with warmth, humor and some heartbreaking times.

  5. hey y’all- great list! Love the family pic!! I do have ur cookbook- one of my favorites!! The weather has been slightly better here in Oklahoma. Instead of around 100 degrees it is about 90 degrees-ugh I am so ready for FALL!!

  6. I just finished How the Penguins Saved Veronica by Hazel Prior. It was really good a little slow to start out with but I really enjoyed it. I’m now reading the The Horsewoman by James Patterson. Even though it is over 400 pages I can’t put it down, really good.

  7. If you are up for a page turner that will have you reading under the covers, check out Leave the World Behind by Rumaan Alam. I am still thinking about it weeks later. A completely different book is The Giver of Stars by JoJo Moyes, another that has stayed with me. Both of these books are beautifully written with characters that draw you in and keep you hooked.
