    Tracy – I’ve said this before but I’ll say it again. I love your Friday lists!! It’s the first thing I check when I get to work, always puts me in a great mood for the rest of the day!

  • Carla

    I will turn 30 this year and am facing some tough decisions my career path is stable but I hate it. How can I change being the main breadwinner, I feel trap in this career and each day is arghhh.

  • Ashleigh | Love Stoned

    I’ve already made a batch of Katie’s detox bath…..can’t wait to use it tonight. Face mask + rainy day + detox bath sounds like a perfect evening! These are all great finds, thanks for sharing!

  • Hilary

    Mad Men par-tay! I’ll drink an Old Fashioned and (try) to like it! 🙂

  • Natalia

    I love, love fridays and since I met your blog I love them even more!!!
    I can’t wait for Mad Men’s new season. The premiere in Spain is on Monday April the 8th … So excited!!!

  • Libby

    Just when I thought I couldn’t be more certain that you’d be my best friend IRL (which, I understand is a totes creep thing to say), you’re reading Anne Lamott.
    Anne Lamott and Tina Fey are my spirit guides.

    PS As per your suggestion on the podcast a few weeks ago, I read Gone Girl and it rocked my world. Thanks.

  • katies pencil box

    thank you, pretty lady! i think we’re on the up and up!
    as far as the bath is concerned…DO IT!
    (just get your mind past the thought of toxins floating in your bath water..haha.)

    happy friday to you!

  • cheryl

    You can put bananas and coconut cream in my macaroon cups ANYTIME you like. Or come on down and I’ll make them for you! The South Bay misses your face.

  • Gina_AcuteDesigns

    I was just thinking this morning about making a kale salad and that one looks amazing!

  • Jade Sheldon

    Ah! I absolutely can’t wait for Mad Men. And I am completely obsessed with that kitchen too…

  • Sandra

    I love this post! The article on Finding Success in Your 30’s is my favorite. Being 32 and changing careers for one that makes me happy is awesome. Good to know I’m on the right track. Thanks for sharing!

  • monday: best of last week | The Misadventures of Kelly and Kelly

    […] she has the best lists of links I mean seriously. The list of travel food suggestions (divine), the kitchen she linked to? […]

  • Ashley

    I always enjoy these posts and end up clicking on almost every single link. I was so honored to be a part of it this week! Thanks, Tracy! 🙂

  • Katie @ Blonde Ambition

    I am SO excited for Mad Men. So much sass, that Sally Draper! I hope her and Betty get in a slap fight this season……I’m mostly not kidding.

    That Dawson’s Creek meme with all the 90’s problems is TOO funny. So so good.

  • Andria

    Your list Fridays are one of my most favorite things. If I was Julie Andrews I would add it to a song. Also loved the interview you did with Best Friends for Frosting. Your photography has always been one of my favorite things about your blog, and that is really intense because I love List Fridays (see above) AND your recipes with my whole heart.

    • Tracy

      You’re the sweetest! Your support & appreciation means a lot to me. Thank you!!!

  • Jenny

    I always check your Friday lists! They’re fun for finding random things. I like how you have a good amount of savory recipes on your blog because I can’t always be working with flour, sugar and butter. I need real food once in a while 😛
