This and That


1.ย Well, March Madness is here! I don’t often follow the NIT tournament but I am this year. The Utes were a bubble team for the NCAA. I watched the Utes first game against St. Mary’s and they lost so it looks like I will continue to not follow the NIT.

2.ย Have you filled out your billion dollar bracket!? Warren Buffet and Quicken Loans have a NCAA bracket challenge this year. If someone completes a perfect bracket, meaning they pick the winners of all the games, they will give them 1 billion dollars. It doesn’t hurt to try?

3. Yesterday we were talking about scheduling a haircut appointment for Caleb. He looked up at us and said, “I don’t want a haircut, I want to look messy.” Maybe we will wait another week.

4. I skied the trees at Deer Valley yesterday. It was awesome! Deer Valley really does have it all!

5. I could never ski like this, but it is fun to watch.


1. On Sunday our Two Peas and Their Pod Facebook page was hacked. Our page was deleted. I couldn’t access it or even see it. I shed a lot of tears and was worried we would never get it back, but on Tuesday Facebook came to the rescue and found our page. Someone tried to make it a DIY Craft page. Our page is back to normal and completely safe so please make sure you are following again! ย You can also sign up for our free email newsletter so you don’t miss a post! Thank you for your patience and continued support.

2. I got my green on this week with two of my favorite green things-avocado and Tieks!

3. I finished two books over the past week: The Avalon Ladies Scrapbooking Society and Joy for Beginners. I loved them both! What are you reading?

4. How to Make a Bouncy Ball. Fun! We are going to try this with Caleb.

5. I am 20 weeks pregnant!! Halfway there! The baby is wiggling around like crazy lately! It is fun to feel, but of course he wants to move around when I want to sleep:)

6. Are you a meal planner? I need to be better. I am hoping these free meal plan printables will help! Would you be interested in seeing our weekly meal plan on the blog? That means I have to start doing a plan:)

7. Creative artwork made with veggies!

8. Loved this dessert. And I am dying over these buns! And I want these blondies. My sweet tooth is strong this week!

9. Upside down shades. It’s the new style!

10. I am all caught up on Nashville! Now I have to wait to watch the new episodes every week. I hate the suspense. It was so nice when I could watch four episodes in a row. The only positive…I am getting more sleep now:)

11. These are going on our dinner menu ASAP!

12. Current craving-Trader Joe’s Just Mango Slices. I have been eating them non-stop for the past few weeks. I was running low, so we went to TJ’s to stock up and I couldn’t find them. I asked if they had any hidden somewhere and they told me they won’t have any in the store for awhile due to crop issues! NO!!!!!! I NEED them! What is a pregnant lady to do?
