    that cocktail!

    the Balance of Blogging post is so timely and to the point… and that accounting post, needed it! oh, and I switched over to Feedly, but I hadn’t downloaded an archive from google reader…so glad you shared that link!

    and, finally, thanks for the love!

    I’m glad I’m not the only one who hates baths! I always feel crazy for it but they totally skeeve me out.

    • Tracy

      They skeeve me out too. And then I fill up the tub and sit in there and think…now what? They’re just not for me.

  • Tatiana

    Fantastic Google Reader replacement is Yoleo Reader (http://yoleoreader.com/). Has all the same features (and more) of Google Reader with a much more pleasant user interface.

  • Nicole

    The Peggy video! I JUST realized from the video that they used makeup to make Peggy appear plumper (a la Betty) but it was such a slow progression, I hadn’t noticed at all. Oh Mad Men, I love you.

  • Monica

    I want to made those studded sneakers – they look so fun.
    Those vegan espresso fudgesicles… no words.

    I made your blueberry lemon ice cream sandwiches on my blog too 🙂


  • Debilee

    The beer bottling article was so timely. My husband is a homebrewer and I just made a “spot” for him on my blog to showcase all the stuff he gets into. Thanks for sharing that post!

    TRACY!!! do the detox bath! <—- spreading the detox bath gospel right now

    i found a similar recipe (? is that the right word haha) on my new roots last winter: http://www.mynewroots.org/site/2009/01/one-hot-night-2/

    and have since been obbessed with the detox baths ( i have two friends who do them every week now since our discovery). I haven't done one recently since its so hot outside but the effects are insaneee. you start to SERIOUSLY sweat (i have to force myself to stay in for at least 20 minutes, so i bring a book) and then when you get out you just kind of want to collapse and crawl into bed. I'm know im making this sound terrible but it's actually awesome! whenever i do a detox bath I have the best night's sleep of my life 🙂 sarah has a much better description on her site, but you should definitely try one out!

    You should tell people about Bloglovin too, that’s how I follow you!

    xo Jennifer


    • Tracy

      oh yes! thanks for the reminder. I don’t currently use Bloglovin, but if Feedly doesn’t work out for me, I just might!

  • Jade Sheldon

    Those vegan espresso pops need to be in my freezer right now…

  • Iris

    Studded sneakers. My 16-year-old self is leaping with joy, and I expect it won’t be long before it convinces 26-year-old self to make a pair…to be fair, I’m already sold on that one! Also, about time I joined Bloglovin as well. Have thought of it for ages, your post was a timely reminder!
