I love lists, Friday!


  1. Some people don’t have a knack for grammar
  2. I think I like life with cats?
  3. The Most Painfully Awkward Things That Happened in 2013. SO. AWK.
  4. Currently reading/loving the book: One Simple Change
  5. MUST make this Gingerbread Caramel Corn. OH MAN.
  6. Anonymous Lies Told to Children.  Hilarious.
  7. I kinda feel like I would react the same way on my podcast. Maybe.
  8. Autocorrect. The struggles!
  9. This Pomegranate Lemonade Punch makes my mouth water.
  10. I bet the guy who wanted underwear & socks regrets his request.
  11. Congrats, Kristin! And WOW your Spicy Cocoa Mix looks amazing!
  12. I can definitely relate to this post about juggling work & motherhood. 
  13. I wonder what this house is like in the snow. Sigh…
  14. Kale is here to stay! I want this Kale Farro Salad immediately.

    Re #6 when I was a kid my mom told me that “if I played with fire I’ll pee my pants”…I believed her and even to this day I get so anxious when people “play with fire”!

    that holiday party looked so nice. Great job 🙂 and I am reading # 6 again.

    Thank you for the shout-out, girlfriend. Means the world. And I am all over Winnie’s book! Even just looking at the cover makes me feel better about life.

  • Kristin

    Tracy I have come to depend on this list to make sure I’m not missing out on anything amazing on the internet and you never let me down! I don’t even know what happened but I burst into tears during the airline video. Thank you so much for sharing the best of the best!

  • Iris R.

    So many of these had me laughing hysterically/made it hard to breathe. So many awkward, hilarious links this week. Thanks!

  • Gabriel

    When I was a kid my family called roast beef “roast beast” (I’m thinking they got it from the Grinch cartoon and thought it was funny, but who knows). I was a teenager before I found out the truth when a friend overheard me say it and nearly peed herself laughing at me. Thanks a lot mom, thanks a lot.

  • Holly Waterfall

    Tracy, as always, I love your lists. They are fantastic.
    But I have to tell you, I was reading through the auto-corrects while laying next to my sleeping wife… NOT smart! I about died trying to hold in the laughter. Some of those were insane! I had to close the page before I woke her up. So funny!

  • HeatherChristo

  • Julie

    Hahahaha, I thought the same thing about #10!
