My Everyday Life: Week 30

Here’s what this past week looked like- My Everyday Life: Week 30

This week, we were in Idaho visiting my in-laws!

Before we left, I wrote down what everyone wanted to do during our trip.

Definitely do this before you go on vacation with your family.

We knocked off quite a few and added some other things to the list.

It was so nice to get away.

Takes a lot to get everything ready to go. The lists keep me sane.

Hello, Idaho!

We spent most of the time at my in-law’s pool.

Me with their dog, Justice. He is like a giant polar bear.

Such a sweet, tender guy.

I finished Calypso on day two of our trip.  It was good! People said it was a little bit dark at times, but I was into that.  After seeing him a few times during is book tours & reading essays online,  I felt like I had read quite a few of the chapters already, but it made for a quick read and I didn’t stop until it was done!

My mother-in-law creates such a welcoming space for her guests.

She’s got GIANT hibiscus in her front yard and the crazy plant lady in me went nutso.

Where I sat and watched the kids most days (with a book).

The weather is in the 100s most of the week.

It made me feel a bit sluggish. I’m glad to be back in the 70s here in California now!

Black Eyed Susans are always catching my eye. Spotted these during our spa day!

I got an epic massage (bruises to prove it!) that was SOOOO needed.

I’m so grateful for lady time that my mother-in-law arranged for us.

Art time with Elzor  (Eleanor) & Nini.

My mother-in-law has an amazing craft closet and we got to bust out her supplies on the patio and play.

Eleanor’s drawings make me so happy.

Especially when there are lions involved.

I accidentally got her obsessed with the word DERP.

Sorry/not sorry, Lauren!

My favorite room in the house is one of the bathrooms.

The wallpaper is THE BEST.

One of the highlights of the trip was going white water river rafting!

Cousins!

We had so much fun floating in the river.

It was so refreshing to jump in during 100-degree weather.

My nephew fell off the raft while we were navigating through a rapid. It made for an amazing story.

Casey got to float in the river just like he wanted to.

The views were gorgeous.

The moon was amazing while we were there.

Every morning I woke up with serious bed head. I got the rest I needed.

I had some crazy dreams. One about my Mom and Chevy Chase!

Family dinner at Barbacoa was awesome.

We celebrated my brother-in-law’s 50th birthday!

Breakfast of champions.

One of the nights I hung out in my mother-in-law’s room and we chatted for an hour and went through all of her perfume and sniffed every single one of them while she told me the stories of each perfume. These little moments are so special.

On the last night,  Casey and I went on a double date/bar crawl in Boise his sister Lauren and brother- in- law Eric.

We went to 4 different bars. Ate food. Had a wonderful time.

Drinking in Idaho is waaaaaaaay cheaper than California!

Going through the Freak Alley in Boise.  The night got a little blurry after that 😉

    I look forward to these posts every single week. I love seeing the world through your photos and there’s always something uplifting. And, almond croissants are my favorite! I’m always trying to find the best one 🙂

  • Sonya Ippolito

    Thank you for sharing your everyday life. Your epic vegetarian dinner looks yummy. Will you have the recipe for it soon?

    • Tracy

      It was grilled bread with my friend’s vegan cheese with arugula and grilled padron peppers on the side 🙂

  • Kaye Lyssy

    LOVE these posts with your spectacular photos! Looks like an epic trip to Idaho!

  • Robin

    Looks like a fun trip! And as always, I love your (vacay) style. Can I ask where you found the amazing blue graphic maxi dress?

    • Tracy

      Thanks Robin! It’s from Gap many years ago. It’s one of my favorite dresses of all time!

  • Kelsey

    Boise is THE BEST!!!! So glad you got to explore…and yes, drinking in Idaho is so much easier on the pocketbook than in Cali. Potatoes and cheap booze…we’ve got it all here!

  • Joy

    I love your weekly MEL posts! Could you share the names of the restaurants you went to in Boise? We are in the middle of moving from Portland to SW Idaho and one thing we are going to miss are all the amazing restaurants here!
    Also, I tried to figure out the brand of yours and coopers robes…mind sharing that too? Thanks!

  • Alana

    OMG that headboard in the room Cooper was staying in is SO pretty!

    Also, I totally have that same sarong! I want to say it’s at least ten years old, from Old Navy or Gap? I got two, because the pattern makes me so happy… over the years I’ve used it as a tapestry, thrown on an accent chair, and wrapped around a pillow. I even cut up one to redo into a lampshade!

    • Tracy

      YES!!! I love it too. It’s such a pretty fabric. I’m so glad it’s lasted this long!

  • Dayna Mailach

    Loved this post! it felt like I was on vacation with you guys! No joke, I am more relaxed now than when I opened your website tonight. Thanks for everything Tracy!
