My Everyday Life: Week 14

Here’s what this past week looked like:

I’m always the one who carries everything.

I like watching rain drops in puddles.

I’m excited for the new leaves on this Japanese Maple.

Made a big batch of Freezer Breakfast Burritos. This time with Broccoli!


Pink fluffy clouds.

Casey has been at home for breakfast this week. We’re enjoying it.

Milk & Cookies Smoothie! SO SO SOOOOOOO good.

Someone got a haircut!

It really brought out his little blonde highlights…and the paint on his face.

I’m excited for all of the little daisies we have around our house.

Our Jasmine is about to pop!

Writing down what I eat everyday. It’s been a challenge, but it’s a good practice!

Speaking of food….I have the most incredible soup coming your way!

Quiet time with Pinot.

Orange snack.

A little heart in my cappuccino.

We dyed Easter eggs on Easter. I always use brown eggs because it makes the color SO VIBRANT.

Easter breakfast.

This was Casey’s Easter breakfast.

We did an Easter Egg hunt.

Cooper’s been really fascinated with coins & money lately (he wants to buy toys) so the Easter Bunny put coins in his eggs this year. He made $5.28.

The Easter Bunny hid stuff in the RAIN!

The Easter Bunny also left him a basket full of goodies. He was OVER-JOYED.

My Easter table. We had my parents over for dinner. It was super casual & fun!

I grilled lamb, made roasted potatoes & asparagus and my mom brought her green salad. 

On the way to work.

A very filling salad for dinner.

Almond butter on whole wheat English Muffins & bananas.

Waffle breakfast at Denise’s with Dana.

I made Banh Mi!!!

I kind of enjoy rainy weekends.

    Love the way you capture the beauty in the everyday. And I agree, looks like Cooper has one awesome Mama! You can see the joy in those sparkling eyes!

  • Amelia

    So much joy in the minutiae of life. I thank you.

  • Alisha

    I love this series, you have such a great eye for the interesting bits of everyday.

    partly inspired by your haircut, i cut mine all off yesterday. it feels so free! and my neck is nice an cool.

    cooper’s cut is adorable, of course.

    thanks for the bahn mi recipe – love! although you can still get them for $2 in sacramento’s little saigon.

    can’t wait for the soup…that looks delicious.

  • jenny

    love all cooper’s expressions in this week’s series. and I can’t wait for that soup!

  • Holly

    Love those wild turkeys!

  • Denise

    I love your lists – wish I could motivate to do the same. They always make me feel like I have shared every week with you. Lovely! The turkey, maple leaves, and waffles are my faves!!!

  • Ellen

    I never realized that brown eggs would get a better color on Easter eggs! Good to know.

  • Heidi - Apples Under My Bed

    Joy. Thanks for sharing! Looking forward to that soup, it’s total soup weather here in Australia at the moment.

    How did I not know about the brown egg thing?? I saw it on Martha Stewart’s Pinterest the day before Easter and then wished I could go back and redo all of my years of egg dying! I always enjoy your puddle shots 🙂

  • Beth

    Love the turkey! Last time I was driving home from snowboarding we drove by a flock hanging out in a random motel parking lot, it looked like an meeting of old men after breakfast about to head out for a walk. Also, I’d love to have your meals for a week, they look so tasty!

  • Victoria

    I’m crazy about the rainy weather too! Your Easter sounds perfect…Just the right balance of fun, excitement, and family! 🙂

  • Kimberly A

    A beautiful week, as always. And I love that Casey puts hot sauce on his hard boiled eggs! It never occurred to me to try it until I saw a co-worker do it. Such brilliance! My favorite hot sauce for hard boiled eggs is Red Rooster, which is a vinegary, Louisiana style sauce. Mmm…I need to go boil some eggs!

  • Brenda

    I’ve never commented before but I just had to say how much I love your My Everyday Life posts. I look forward to them every Sunday (as well as your other posts during the week). I really enjoy your blog and your little boy is too cute!! Keep up the great work.

  • Ann

    Another follower here who is looking forward to that delicious soup recipe! I was surprised that you have wild turkeys wandering around. You would not see that in my part of the world.
    I haven’t seen white eggs for many years. We only get a choice of brown or brown at the supermarket.

  • Maria Tadic

    I love rainy weekends too. So great for cooking, blog catching up and relaxing under a blanket! Ugh…now I want another rainy weekend!

  • Jayne

    I really want to eat with you. Or maybe just have you cook for me all day. The stuff you eat, totally up my alley! And that random turkey. We get random squirrels. And fruit bats. If there were random turkeys walking around, they’d end up in a pot around these parts. For real.

  • Jenny

    I love looking at what you eat. It always looks so good. Even when it seems like random things thrown together.

  • jamie @ green beans & grapefruit

    Love seeing a glimpse into your week 🙂

  • Mel@TheDizzyMom

    You got me hooked on avocado on toast! I can’t get enough.

  • krystal

    Have you ever done a post or mentioned how you make such amazing at-home coffee!?!?

  • T.

    Beautiful photos!

  • Rebecca in STL

    I really love your everyday life posts. Brings a little West Coast envy to my drab Midwest existence!

  • Chloe Moon

    What a lovely peek into your life!!

  • brandi

    so jealous of that waffle breakfast 🙂 love Denise and Dana!

  • Joanna

    I love reading your blog (and seeing your pictures), although I inspired by you I tried avacado on toast – it’s not for me :(.
    Are you going to blog what you ate for the week from your food diary? xo

    • Tracy

      Not into avocado toast!?! Whoa! I probably won’t blog about it. I don’t think it would be very exciting.
