  • I got a bad stomach bug while Maria was out of town and it really took me down. The boys were so good. Maxwell made dinner and Caleb took the lead on chores.
  • I am really liking our new Wolf griddle that is part of the range top. I used it make our favorite pancakes and I could make a ton at a time. It’s big and cooks great.
  • The NBA playoffs have been fun to watch this year.
  • Do you want a new hobby?
  • We want to go back.
  • The NFL Draft is tonight, I always like to tune in.


  • New this week, the perfect spring salad, an easy meal that is freezer friendly too, and a sweet recipe!
  • I was in New Orleans earlier this week for a work conference. It was fun seeing friends and talking business. I didn’t get to explore a ton, but we did eat beignets:) We also got to hear from Harry Connick Jr. He was delightful.
  • I bought this blazer to go with these pants for the conference.
  • I watched the movie, About Fate, on the plane ride home. Not the best movie ever, but I still enjoyed it.

  1. I am curious to know more about your new Wolf griddle that is part of the range top. It sits right on your Wolf range top?

    1. We have the big griddle that is in the middle of the gas range top. It is so awesome. It heats up quickly and is easy to clean. It comes with a stainless steel cover so it always looks nice.

  2. hey y’all- great list! Sorry you had a stomach bug Josh. Hope your feeling a lot better now. Happy the boys were a big help! Maria- glad you had fun in New Orleans. And back home safe. Glacier National Park looks amazing. Ya’ll have a great day!!

  3. Josh…that “bug” is here in eastern US, too! Ugh! Glad you’re feeling better!
    Maria…love the blazer, think I’ll order one myself..haha!! Happy you got a little “taste”of NOLA while you were there!! Fascinating city!!

  4. Josh, my hometown, Kansas City is all decked out for the NFL draft. You couldn’t pay me to get anywhere near the madness at Union Station, but for football fans it’s going to be a great experience. And hopefully everyone will behave themselves & show KC’s best side. Go Chiefs!

  5. Wow – you sure won the weekly lottery! I am so glad you went to Cafe du Monde.
    Fav store on Chartres is Wise Buys.
    A fav restaurant, non tourist type is Clancy’s.
    Hope you had a muffelata and even better, a shrimp po’boy.
    It is a yummy city. oh and yoga at Wild Lotus.
