My Everyday Life: Week 24

Here’s what this past week looked like:

I like watching people exercise on the Marina. It looks like they might collide.

First time making cappuccino in the new house. Not too shabby!

This is the kitchen at 7:30am.

This makes me happy. I just wish that other door wouldn’t close on me all the time.

This is also the first time we’ve had a fridge that’s magnetic in like 10 years.

I made grilled cheese on our grill. I also made my addictive Brussels sprouts salad for dinner.

I usually hate getting my oil changed. This was seriously less than 10 minutes.

Pinot is enjoying being an outdoor cat. I think Remy is kinda digging it too.

I felt like this after sitting in traffic all morning.

My goal is to get my office organized by next week. Wish me luck!

I did get my linen closet organized. You can see more over at High Straightenence.

Pretty colors at the GAP.

Chicken Fajita salad for dinner with an iced cold Pacifico.

Cooper stamping with his new girlfriend, Lily.

They had so much fun playing with water together.

I tricked him into smiling here. It worked.

Cooper also got into my paper towel stash. He later removed the cardboard center from EVERY roll.

AHHH. Good thing he’s cute.

My succulents like it in our new/old house.

Making Coconut Cake with Berries & Cream.

When we were up in Seattle for BlogHer, Joy & I went to Vashon Island to visit Shauna & Danny.

I’m probably saying something ridiculous in this picture.

And this is her “Oh…Tracy…” look.  I get this a lot.  Thanks for taking our photos, Trent!!

Shauna made a wonderful salad with tons of avocado. I loved watching her in the kitchen.

Danny made us the most incredible fritatta. It was such a wonderful day. I haven’t felt that relaxed in years.

It was definitely a good week!

    • Tracy

  • Amanda Barkey

    oh that addictive brussels sprouts salad… i die.

  • theshelledpea

    No pink pedicure in Seattle? Is it weird that I know that much about your feet? Is that the weirdest question ever? I’ll stop now.

  • Rachael

    What a great week indeed! Your new house is gorgeous – love the kitchen so much!

    Wish I lived in California instead of grey and cold Scotland……not that I’m jealous or anything!

    Thanks for sharing your great pictures. 😀

  • IdaBaker

    From the looks of it, you had a great week. It’s always nice to see happy homes, and that reflects on the one in charge. 🙂

    Oh, I miss CA.

  • MaryBeth

    Oooo I LOVE your kitchen, the cat and seeing Cooper with his friend makes me miss summer when I was a kid! I was seriously thinking of taking the summer off, but then remembered the bills I have to pay, ah to be a kid again! I think I’ll go make myself a dark and stormy so I can feel better about being an adult now! 🙂

  • Cate

    We don’t have a magnetic fridge and it totally bums me out!

    I love these posts! I just read all 24 weeks in one sitting. Those were 24 very attractive weeks.

  • Sarah

    i really need to make that coconut cake! and i’m obsessed with your organizing skills — love it.

  • Jane M

    Sadly you had to leave that gorgeous fridge at your old house? My mouth is watering over your frittata and salad. Yummmmmm. We are almost at the 1/2 year of 2012! Time sure is flying. Love your pix.

  • saad safdar

    I love your kitchen it isa very beautiful.

  • kim

    I love that picture of you! And the flamingo (?) on the refrigerator.

  • Kami

    I’m dying to pin the inside of your cabinet, it’s too cute! But this would make me a total creeper, so I resist!

  • Allyn

    I would live in your kitchen for forever.

  • Claire Maxwell

    You and Joy are just beautiful.

    Freaking love you two.

  • Kate @ eatrecyclerepeat

    I am continually impressed with your cappuccino foam skills. And I love all the greens and blues in the avocado photo

  • whoorl

    Looks like a perfect week to me!

  • OliePants

    I love your new house and I love how organized you are!! I have your fridge makeover on my to-do list.

  • Sarah

    I love your blog!

  • Sarah S

    your son is so cute! removing all the carboard rolls from the paper towels sounds like something my 5 year old guy would do -how do they come up with stuff like that?????? Childhood boggles my mind.

  • JenMarie

    I really love your new kitchen! I forgot you moved for a second and was all, WHERE is her black and white?????!!!!

    BTW, I had NO idea that you can pull the centers out of the paper towel rolls. THat’s something that having a boy will teach you. I only had a daughter as a child. I have older stepsons that I got after they wer 9 and 10, so they’re destructive, but with like big stuff. VCR’s and holes in the backyard, and spraypaint on the trees…. *things to look forward to*

    • Tracy

      It’s crazy how physical boys can be!!! I have to keep an eye on cooper at all times or else I’m in serious trouble.

  • Nancy

    Nice to see you rocking those black saltwater sandals. I finally pulled out my pair (in brown/pink) for the summer. Does Cooper have a pair? I loved seeing little boys in the sandals. Too cute!
