My Everyday Life: Week 18

Here’s what this past week looked like:

NEED CREATIVE SPACE. Always & forever.

Highlight of the week? Caramel Brioche Croutons!

Worst part of the week? Food poisoning!  I believe this shrimp burrito had something to do with it.

Cooper was sick a few days before so maybe it was a bug. In other words…IT SUCKED.

Since I was laid up in bed all Saturday, I missed the Supermoon. I did get to see it on Friday…Not the same.

This is Cooper’s PLLLLLLEASE face.

This is how he gets his aggression out on the chalkboard in the kitchen.


There was a trip over the Golden Gate Bridge this week.

I watched a random cat hang out in our backyard.

We got deli sandwiches for lunch one day.

We’re currently packing because we are moving!

Things are pretty chaotic around here.

Boots & a bicycle (not my bike).

Remy’s favorite spot in the house…the guest room! I’ll show you that soon.

Turkey Bacon BLT on Dave’s Killer bread.

Greek Salad and Amanda & Matthew holding hands in the background!

    Ooooo food poisoning is the absolute worst! I am so sorry, hopefully you’re feeling better. You need to let us in on why you’re moving, Tracy! I was hoping you’d mention it on the latest Homefries podcast… ha that probably sounds a little weird. I just love your home and the way you’ve decorated it, and I’m so eager to see what the next one will look like!

  • Janet

    So much to discuss here! 1. That need creative space sign is on Howard, right? Right by my office!! 2. I am glad you are feeling better! 3. You’re moving!? 4. DAVE’S KILLER BREAD! 5. Miss you! We need to catch up!

  • Benthe

    You’re moving. That means that you can show us your new interior and maybe some interior shopping right ;)?

  • Rachael

    Boo for food poisoning! Hope you’re all better now!
    Exciting that you’re on the move! You’re current place looks amazing, so I can’t wait to see how you get creative on the new place!

    • Tracy

      It’s the worst!! I hope to never have it again. And thank you! The new place is much different. It’s gonna take a lot of creativity, but I’m excited for some new challenges.

  • Marissa | Pinch&Swirl

    I could deny Cooper nothing. ever. with that ‘plllllease’ face.

  • Nicole @ The Dirty Oven

    Just Lovely! Totally forgot to take a pic of the moon. It was even super lovely this morning.
    Hope ya feel better…

  • Laura

    Are you moving to LA? (please say yes!) ’cause then I have a decorating project for you (like you have any time..): my house. If you are staying up north please drop some tips on how to deal with a big house with carpet 🙁 (and very few furniture).

    • Tracy

      Nooope! Still in the Bay Area. It would be awesome to live close to Joy though!

  • Sarah

    I have a black cat named Remy, too!

  • Mallory

    Oh my goodness, you are moving….how exciting! Good luck with the packing…don’t ya wish you could just wiggle your nose and poof…done! Great way to declutter and purge though….

  • Kelsey

    Good luck with the move!

  • holly

    REMY on the pillow!!! so stinking cute.

  • jenn

    i do hope you are feeling better! i absolutely adore the pitcher on your backyard table. please tell me it’s glass 😉 i have been searching for one for months now but can’t seem to find just the right one. good luck with the packing!

    • Tracy

      It’s glass! I got it at Whole Foods. I think they sell them at the Container Store too!

  • PerBer

    I hope you are feeling better!! I made the caramel brioche croutons for a dessert picnic with vanilla ice cream and strawberries and it was delicious! It was my first time making caramel so I was pretty nervous I was going to destroy the pot I made it in. fortunately I only destroyed a plastic spatula.

    • Tracy

      oooh plastic spatulas and caramel don’t mix!! lesson learned. Thank you so much for trying it!

  • Rachel W.

    I bet you’re movin over the bridge – the East Bay is the coolest! 😉

  • Alix

    omg i’m so sorry you got food poisoning. UGH! The worst. And now the move too….you take care of yourself lady!!

  • Kiki

    So sorry to hear you were sick. Bummer. Hope you’re feeling better!

    On a different note, I love Dave’s Killer Bread! I actually visited their plant (or whatever it’s called) last summer.

    Anyway, love your blog (especially your Friday posts, they’re awesome) and your podcast with Joy!

    • Tracy

      Ooooh lucky! What’s it like??

      • Kiki

        Oddly enough the day I went they had a small kitchen fire so I didn’t really get to stick around long. But my sister, dad and I did manage to buy a few of the Sin dawgs and other goodies!

  • Julie

    Oh man, can I buy your house then?

  • jackie @ marin mama cooks

    Hi Tracey. Are you moving over to Marin?

  • Dottie

    Moving!?! Squee!!! Please tell me you are moving 10 minutes from my house. Because that would be awesome. Almost as awesome as those sweet caramel brioche croutons. YUM!
