    Thanks for linking my Soft Batch cookies (#13)! They are seriously one of my fave cookies I’ve ever made and I make just a few here and there 🙂 Thanks for the linky love!

    Victoria’s/SFGirlBay’s post is extremely awesome. It’s so easy to think one thing until you realize, there’s always more than meets the eye. Thank you for this link. We all need that reminder I think.

    Those smores…nice! I have some homemade graham crackers that are calling to be made into them.

    Have a wonderful weekend, Tracy!

  • Aimee @ Simple Bites

    Thanks for linking to my culinary journey. I REALLY want to hear about yours!

  • Seriously Sassy Mama

    I would like to eat Nachos with Bill Murray.

  • Carly

    So I live in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada. We have a baseball team that plays in some small-town league (don’t ask me what it’s called). Bill Murray owned one of the other teams in the league. I was driving downtown with some friends one evening and a taxi pulled up beside us. A window rolled down and the guy shouted “How did you get your hair so curly?” I looked over and it was Bill Murray! I said “It’s just like that!” (I still wish I had said something funny instead.) He said “I love it!” and drove off. Totally made my day.

  • Sally

    Wow, thank you for sharing the 40 inspiring spaces. I love that kind of stuff!!

  • Katy @ Katy's Kitchen

    Wow, that Dove ad was so moving. I don’t normally watch youtube videos but I couldn’t tear my eyes away from that one. I especially like the fact that the artist was a man, drawing the women.

  • Anne

    Thank you, thank you for passing along the K-Mart ad. Amidst all of the tragedy this week (that I simply can’t pull myself away from), this was a much needed laugh. I will be passing it on.

  • Michelle

    Great list! I love the juicing tips.:)

  • Caitlin

    I am so glad I clicked on the link to the K-Mart advert – I live in the UK, so I have no idea what K-Mart is, but I’m darned sure that I want my stuff shipped by them! I wish advertising was as daring as that over here, I was howling with laughter! Great post as always Tracy!

  • MissM

    Hahahahaha….I am doing a juice cleanse right now!!!! I laughed so hard just now! I will let you know if I will try to eat my pets in a couple of days 🙂
    I know you did the Blueprint Cleanse, right? Would you do it again?

    • Tracy

      Yeah I would totally do it again! I’ve done it three times so far and have had a good experience. “Some” of those gifs hit close to home though 😉

  • Meagan @ Scarletta Bakes

    I love your lists so hard, but especially so this Friday. Nachos: check. Slammin’ cookies from Averie: check. Some real talk about social media: check, check, check. Thanks, Tracy! Awesome weekend!

  • tara

    Damn, I have to stop looking at these right before lunch because then I just get sooo hungry! You always have such great links!

    That sandwich! Those nachos! The s’mores!

  • Amanda Barkey

    whoaaaaaa! so many good links! I just about fell over on the floor when i saw those soft batch cookies… also, I was just about BAWLING over here reading that post about being a Mom since Im a Mom to a little boy who is 4 years + 23 days (who is snuggled up beside me right now watching sesame street, these times are going to be gone in an instant!)I think with all of this terribleness (is that even a word?!) going on in our world, their innocence shines even brighter and I am so blessed by it every. single. day. my very favorite line was ‘…because as I remind myself numerous times a day, it actually IS hard to be four. And three and two and six and twelve and thirty two.’ so true… thats why we have soft batch dark brown sugar coconut oil cookies, right?! 🙂

  • Hannah

    Such a great list this week! Your picks had me laughing, crying, and drooling… Thanks! Have a great weekend!

  • Liren

    I’ll admit that I’ve been curious about juice cleanses, but pity for my family has held me back. That link on what a juice cleanse really looks like cracked me up – and confirmed why I just can’t bring myself to try it 🙂

    Great list this week! And just wanted to say, I was thrilled to be featured with you on Refinery29. Really and truly.

    Schedule one of your Monterey County trips during the AT&T Pro-Am! I live in Pebble Beach and this happened to me during this year’s tournament:

    I walked over to our nearby golf course to see if I could catch a glimpse of some celebs and experienced the following: While I watched from the road, Bill Murray shouted “Do you have a ticket?” to me. When I shook my head no, he left the course, walked through a bunch of shrubbery, grabbed my hand, and told me he would teach me the proper way to sneak in, which involved him pulling me as we both walked backwards through semi-treacherous shrubbery while pretending to observe bird life, the ocean, etc. He then directed me under the rope fence and said “There, now you’re in.” And so I was. Thanks, Bill Murray! :p

  • Nicole @ Healthy Food Crush

    Hello! I love reading your I love lists blog post! You are such an inspiration and talented blogger. I always find the links interesting. I especially loved the Dove Beauty one. It made me cry and it is so true. I would love to have a successful blog, mine is still in beginning stages. One of these days I will try one of your recipes and let you know.

    Have a great weekend
