My Everyday Life: Week 19

Here’s what this past week looked like.

My brother Ryan is in town from NYC.

We went out to breakfast.

Today I REALLY wanted the banana wheat germ pancakes at Stack’s but I chickened out (AGAIN!) and got the veggie breakfast skillet. Can’t stop, won’t stop.

Stuck in traffic.

I love clouds. The end.

Cooper woke up over 45 minutes early every morning this week.

It was kind of annoying. But at least I got to see this…

And this…

I caught the waiter in the wineglass.

There was a lot of playing outside this week.

I made lemon & mint juleps. Recipe soon!

Cooper’s favorite lunch.

What I stare at at work. I can feel my blood pressure rise as I type this.

Drawing on packing paper.

We are living with boxes everywhere.

Good thing about moving? You find stuff you’ve been looking for. My glasses! It’s only been like 8 months.

Still looking for my lens cap…

Cat breakfast.

I love how I can see trees in bowls sometimes. Not always ideal when you’re taking pretty food shots.


Proof that you shouldn’t grocery shop when you’re hungry. We could have done with just two.

    I love to see left-handed fellows like Cooper 🙂

    • Neely

      Me too! Makes me so happy every time I see a pic of him being a lefty. I have three girls and one last chance with my 8 month old. Are either one of you lefty? I get made fun of but I love it, go Cooper!!

    I’m loving the early morning light photos! I’m a baker and it’s the one thing that makes getting up at 4am seem not so bad. That early light always reminds me of camping, when you roll out of the tent and it’s so peaceful, I just love it!

  • Lucia

    Love the dawn light. It makes me happy.

  • Lori @ Think Global, Art Local

    I’m glad I’m not the only one who takes lots of pictures of pretty clouds 🙂

    Hey Tracey!
    Don’t worry, I do that every single time I go food shopping and intend to buy sushi! EVERYTIME. lol

  • Ashley

    What is that banana dessert? Looks so yummy

    • Tracy

      That was my breakfast 🙂 Raspberry yogurt, banana & some kashi crunch!

  • Marissa | Pinch&Swirl

    Sweet photos! Looking forward to the lemon & mint julep recipe – yum! + Happy Mother’s Day!

  • joy the baker

    i love these compilations. i really do. happy mama day, friend!

  • Maria

    I think I would love the veggie skillet breakfast you often show in your pictures; however, at the Stacks near us, there isn’t one! Seems each Stacks is individually owned, so can you please tell me what’s in it….I’ll try to make my own. Thanks for a great blog!

    • Tracy

      Oh boo!! Bottom: hasbrowns, onions, broccoli, mushrooms & cheddar. Eggs on top! It’s soooo good. I get it without celery though. I don’t know why they put celery on it.

  • Kate @ eatrecyclerepeat

    I love Cooper’s intent face while he is coloring. As for brunch – order both, eat half of each and take it home, or make someone else get it and split the two entrees?

  • Meghan

    I think the everyday life posts are my favorite. Its like a weekly affirmation of the “Things I’m afraid to tell you” posts that are going on. Your life is beautiful (or you make it so) but its also very real. I appreciate you.

  • Elizabeth

    Are you ever going to come out with a cookbook?

  • Julie @BananasForBourbon

    If we went to Stack’s I’d suggest the pancakes and veggie skillet to share. 😉 Because pancakes are awesome, but how do you beat those eggs? Yum! That’s why my husband is so handy. He generally lets me order for both of us and we share. I’m always lost when he’s not there and I can only order 1 dish!
