My Everyday Life: Week 30

Here’s what the past week looked like:

I’m in New York!! I’ll be here til Monday night.

Here’s my view from the plane.

My flight was delayed…there was CRAZY weather in this country.

Sitting in the back of a cab on the way into Manhattan.

Staying with my brother!!!

When in New York, I drink a massive amount of water. You just gotta.

We hopped in a cab during the craziest rainfall. Rain sideways!! It dumped on us. It was kinda fun!

I love looking at storefront windows when I’m in NYC.

Dinner at Morini. I’ll tell you more about that soon.

Drinking 16 dollar drinks in a hotel bar.  *gulp*

Clouds in my coffee at Balthazar.

So many grates to walk over in NYC. They kinda freak me out.

On the way to the Holland Tunnel. Traffic was bonkers and this building seemed to blend right into the sky.

I was in NYC for the Big Summer Potluck in PA.

It was hosted by Pam Anderson & Maggy Anderson Keet from Three Many Cooks. I just adore them.

I got to wear my super summery outfit.

I got to hang out with my Maj. She’s looking fierce.

Brooke from Food Woolf was such an inspiration. Her talk on Mindfulness blew my mind.

I also loved Maggie’s tattoo.

I curated a collection of rocks while listening to Molly O’Neil’s amazing words of wisdom about writing.

It rained and stopped and rained and stopped and then the sun came out. Such a great time!

This was earlier this week. Packing for the trip.

I made a fantastic crisp with black sesame seeds. I can’t wait to share it with you.

Casey walking through the kitchen…messing around with my camera while we entertained my dear friends Amanda & Matthew.

I made them a corn hash with fried eggs, an avocado & arugula salad and fresh tomatoes.

Green juice & coffee. They cancel each other out.

Afternoon snack at work. Rice cake with sunflower seed butter & hot tea.

    Gotta love the BIG NYC but not so much in the rain. Commuted in from Jersey at the beginning of the week to the Javits. Fun times in the menswear industry. Just wish the weather would make up its mind lately.

  • Beth

    I love how your dress is the only splash of color in your clothes! Looks just like my closet! I’m trying to make myself buy at least one bright colored item of clothing this summer to every black or striped piece of clothing I buy, it’s so hard!

  • Melissa

    Where in Bucks County was the Potluck? That’s where I grew up!

  • Emily

    It was great meeting you at the potluck! Balthazar is one of my favorites ever.

  • Amy

    I always feel like I have lots to say on these comments, and I’m sorry because it’s kind of creepy to leave a list comment, but here I go:

    1) I was petrified of those grates when I was NYC! Do not like.
    2) I took a million photos of that building, too! The clouds in it were so amazing. I was kind of obsessed.
    3) I’m glad I’m not the only person who drinks a green juice with a giant thing of coffee! I know it’s kind of counterintuitive, but they’re both so great!
    4) That stripey dress is so cute and I saw a pic of you in it on Instagram and it looks so adorable on you! I love it!

    Enjoy the rest of NYC and please go eat a pretzel croissant at City Bakery for me.

    I’m totally freaked out by the grates in NYC, too. but you should brave them to go to sigmund pretzel in the east village if you have time before you leave. CARBS. 🙂

  • Kayla

    Looks like you’re trip to NYC has been great! Hope to hear more about it soon 🙂 Oh, and I love your blue and red dress!

  • Gretta

    what street is the graffiti on? is that in soho

  • Gwen Edwards

    I love that clouds in coffee pic so much Tracy. Seriously.

    Now for a song…clouds in my coffee, clouds in my coffee and you’re so vain, you probably think this song is about you…

    But you’re not vain girl, you just rock it!

  • Ellie @ The Bitchin' Kitchin'

    Balthazar is my absolute fave brunch place in NYC. Disgustingly good!

  • Lucia

    I love crazy weather and rain. And grates totally freak me out too 🙂

  • Leah

    Beautiful pictures, what a lovely week!

    The photo looking up at the lanterns is dreamy 🙂

  • biobabbler

    Wow. SUCH a great group of photos. LOVE your outfit that matches the NYC grate!! And love that you looked STRAIGHT up at the lamps over your head. =)

    I assume you’ve already seen this, but in line w/high straightenance, if you’ve not seen I think you’d like it. AND you would probably have great things to submit to them. =) Hope NYC treats you well.

  • JulieGoesHealthy

    Even though it’s summer and hot here, your afternoon tea sounds so good!

  • Catalina @ Cake with Love

    I hoped you liked dining at Morini, I was there once and we had a great experience!

  • Elise Martinez

    Looks like an awesome time! I’d love to go to one of your events sometime. Come to Chicago! 🙂

  • CulinarilyCourtney

    Ah, Tracy. This post is golden. It is my dream/goal to be living in New York by next year after I graduate. This post was like seeing snippets of what I (hopefully) have to look forward to.

  • Clara

    Tracy! Hope you had an amazing time in NYC. You do need to drink a lot of water while you’re here, wise wise words! Hope you had a safe trip home. xx

  • Robyn

    looks like your brother has the high straightenence gene as well!

  • Michelle

    Your Everyday Life posts are some of my favorite that you do, I love your perspectives 🙂 Plus how can you not love Joy rocking a super model pose, totes maj!

  • Cortnie

    I like your minimalist packing style! Gotta do it.


  • Brooke @ Food Woolf

    It was lovely meeting you this weekend. Thank you so much for your kind words. Love your images from the weekend!

  • Molly

    Tracy! It looks like it was another great week! I love weeks when you get to see Joy, they make me happy! Question for you: What green juice reicpe do you use? Have you posted it? Do you have one comparable to the BPC green juice? I’ve juiced a few of your fruit juice recipes and love them, but am looking to make a great vegetable juice. Bathing suit season isn’t over, I need to do some juice ’til dinners! Thanks so much!

    • Tracy

      Molly!!!! Hey girl! You have the Blueprint book, right?? They have a recipe for their green juice in that book. For this one I just threw in a bunch of stuff. There’s spinach, chard & apples in this juice. I need some juice til dinners for a week!
