My Everyday Life: Week 49

This is my 1000th POST!!!!! How crazy is that?  We should celebrate somehow. I’ll get back to you on that.

Here’s what this past week looked like:

After 4 years of trying, I finally got Cooper to wear a hat! YAY.

Clouds were insane this week.

This is unedited. Can you BELIEVE this?

Pinot has been more of an indoor cat since it’s been cold out.

Purple & stripes.

Lunch at Chez Panisse with Allison & Dana.  I’m gonna make this salad for you! Watch out.

I find it really challenging to drive in the rain at night. The lights blur together.

New boots.


I LOVE foggy mornings.

Toast with pesto & scrambled eggs for breakfast.

Chopping almonds while I’m talking to my mom on the phone.

Cooper walking down the street with my mom. The boots! HAHA.

Family dinner at Lincoln Park in San Anselmo.

I ordered the coriander crusted cod with kale, avocado & parsley. It was tasty.

I fell in love with this almond cake with ginger whipped cream. I’d love to make it!

I made some yummy treats. I can’t wait to share them with you!

Foggy San Francisco.

It’s like a fuzzy blanket.

Birds on a wire.

Always paying attention to reflections in puddles.

I also like watching my parents use utensils.

Ladies who lunch.

Our Christmas cards came!!! We ordered from Minted this year.

The mantle thru a mirror….and reflected in my camera lens.

Avocado on a tortilla for breakfast. I’m starting to hang up Christmas cards in our kitchen.

I feel so lucky to live here.

    That first photo of Cooper is seriously one of the most adorable things I’ve ever seen. He is so handsome! AND THAT HAT. Ahhh.

    I love your photos so much!!! So inspiring.

  • Julia

    Your pictures make me happy…especially the one of your parents using utensils on that giant pizza. Their hands look like mirror images with the rings 🙂

  • Jen

    If he lived here in Mn he would wear thar hat a lot quicker because he’d be COLD!! He is so so cute Tracey !!

  • Victoria

    Your pictures make me want to move there! Well, almost. 🙂 Love your parents’ hands and how they use forks and knives the same way. Crazy clouds this week, cute kid, and of course, can’t wait for the recipes you promised in this post!!!

  • Amanda Barkey

  • Lori H

    Love Cooper’s hat and the purple shoes!

  • Savvy Aggarwal

    Lovely pictures. I got a nice smile on my face going through your pictures.

  • Candice

    You have such amazing weeks. If I did this, they’d all be pictures of the same thing every day… definite food for thought…

    Those boots look cute – what kind are they?

    A salad with shaved parmesan, it looks like? Yes please, EVERY day.

  • Hannah

    Congrats on 1000! And congrats on getting Cooper to wear a hat! Such a great week!

  • Becky

    1000 must be your lucky number because these are some of my favorite photos ever. Xo

  • Claire @Lemon Jelly Cake

    THE SKY! I love your sky. My sky is grey and wintery, beautiful in its own way, but not quite as breathtaking. Congrats on 1000 posts! That’s awesome. 🙂

  • Jane M

Your recipes and ideas are totes awesome!

  • Ellen

    Happy 1000:)
    I am jealous of your clouds and fog. I know living in LA I’m supposed to be a sun worshipper but I miss the rainy day days!

  • Jayne

    I love all that pictures! We’ve been having really dark heavy rain clouds here every day that are fun to take pics of.

    Also, Cooper looks like little boy version of you. So handsome!

    And the pic of your parent’s hands… you have to make a print out and frame that up. I love it!

  • Lori

    I LOVE the packaging for your treats!

  • jessica

    Congratulations Tracy on your 1000th blog entry, this is the best blog I’ve seen. Your picture of the mantle in the mirror and your lens is amazing. And all your pictures of your food creations are beautiful. Camden showed me your blog and she likes to show me what to TRY to cook for her. It’s a great job, this blog. I hope you have a nice Christmas, if you want to try to make that almond cake, it looks a lot like a Swedish almond cake my grandma would make. There are two varieties, one with flavour and one with homemade almond paste and marzipan, the marzipan/paste one is better. Congratulations again!

  • Sue

    Where did you have that pizza with your parents? It looks delicious!

  • Lisa

    What an incredible week of photos!!! Thanks so much for sharing 🙂

  • Stefanie

    Happy 1000th post! I love the boots – what are they?

    • Tracy

      Hey! Thanks. I got them at Target! They’re meant for the snow, but I wear them as rainboots!

      • Kelsey

        I have the same boots!! Woot woot- Shutterbean approved!! Now I will be (a little) excited for snowy days 🙂
        Congratulations on 1000- toes maj!

  • Nicole @ The Dirty Oven

    Boom Boom Pow…or as Calvin would say,”Great job, Tracy Sutteregg!”

  • Dana

    1000?? Girl, that is inspiring. I’ve loved this site for so long! Congrats to you. Love Cooper’s hat!

  • joy the baker

    i love what you see in puddles! my eyes don’t see those things, but you inspire me. also, your meta mantle picture is major!

  • Jessica

    Congrats on 1000 posts! We are the lucky ones!

    What kind of paper are you wrapping your treats in? Those look like Martha’s labels that she sells at Staples.

    The cake looks like an almond gooey cake my mom makes – easy & delicious! Hers uses almond extract. I’d love to try the one that another Jessica mentioned above that her grandma made with marzipan & almond paste. I think you should get both recipes and test them at the same time. 🙂

  • Heidi - Apples Under My Bed

    Loved this. Your wrapped gifts look just gorgeous. & your mum’s bag….want!

  • Iris

    Yay happy 1000th post! Can’t imagine my blog everrrr getting there

  • Tina

    You ARE so lucky to live there! Tennessee Williams said “America has only three cities. New York, San Francisco and New Orleans…everywhere else is Cleveland.” I agree wholeheartedly 🙂


    That is one of the biggest pizza’s I have ever seen.
