    That Mt. Tam gin is amazing! Have you been to the distillery on Alameda? They have a great bourbon too!

    • Tracy

      I have! I’m gonna take my husband next time. He’ll LOVE IT. When I went they were just starting to make bourbon. Can’t wait to try it.

  • Kirsty

    That caramel corn looks so amazing, I have to bake some soon.
    Also, I heart Joys cat!

  • Susan

    The Ferris Bueller gummy bear line! LOLOLOL
    My kids like to tease me that I was the gummy bear girl in high school. (Truth is, they probably aren’t that far off.)

  • Emily D.

    About a year ago I saw a box of donuts on the ground on campus while walking to class. They looked perfectly fine (except that they were on the ground). Over about a week I watched them get rained on a trampled on until someone finally cleaned them up. It was honestly one of the saddest things I have ever seen. I still feel bad for whoever dropped those donuts.

    • Tracy

      So sad. Reminds me of that cake left out for the raccoons in Bridesmaids.

  • Amy

    I think it’s lame that we got zero pics together…I don’t even know how that happened. Nevertheless, the BTP pics made me happy and I cherished our time together there <3

    • Tracy

      I was so shocked at how little I used my camera. But I guess that’s just a testament to how much I was distracted/entertained/connecting with people. Love to you!

  • Christina C

    Love these posts! This one spoke to be I’ve been on the fence about going away for a weekend trip with my ladies, thank you for reminding me it’s ok and good for the soul 🙂

  • Elise

    You and Joy are so beautiful! I really love the short hair 🙂 Beautiful photos as always!

  • Averie @ Averie Cooks

    Love it. Love the pic of your son and you and Joy and Alex. What a fun bunch! I wish Potluck was like once a month, and we could all just drop in whenever!

    That caramel corn. Still really wanting that.

    And the teal/funky wood surface the margarita is on. I want that too!

    • Tracy

      It was fun & went by WAY TO FAST. So nice to FINALLY meet you!! xoxoxo

  • laura

    Laughing at your Cafe Gratitude comment…I went there this week with a friend and really just couldn’t get out of there fast enough.

    Looking forward to making your caramel…thanks for the photos!

    • Tracy

      RIGHT?!??! I am ungrateful for the service there. See what I did there?

  • Tieghan

    I want that caramel corn!

    Your son is so adorable! That pic of you and Joy is so adorable!

    LA traffic really is THE WORST!!

    Wish I could have come to the potluck!! Looks like you all had so much fun!

    Hope you have an awesome cinco de mayo! Bring on the tacos, guacamole and margaritas!

    • Tracy

      You should make it!
      Thank you!
      It totally is!
      You should go next time!
      Tacos for days!!!

  • Andria

    Monster cat is awesome, caramel corn looks AMAZING, is there anything better than a pug and a sweet little face across the table? But where in the world did you find that off the charts fantastic ring in your roadtrip photo? I yearn for that, a little bit it speaks to my soul. Also I don’t think it is possible that you and Joy could be any more fantastic and then you did your game face. Nicely done!

    • Tracy

      That’s Joy’s ring! Isn’t it a beauty? I stared at it all weekend.

  • MissM

    We have been trying to find a date for a girls weekend all winter…still haven’t found one. I so want to do this! Will get right on finding a date again today!!! Have a lovey sunday! M x

  • Jayne

    Everyone needs to perfect a good game face.

  • Ryan

    What’s the deal with those pandas on the hc cup?

  • joy the baker

    i think i might be developing a lazy eye.

  • jamie @ green beans & grapefruit

    My friend and I went to Cafe Gratitude yesterday and after a server explained that the red sharpie marker down his arm was a marking of warrior-ness and “Hamir came over to increase his energy level,” I literally spit my coffee everywhere. My aura was dark, Tracy.

    Love all the pics from Temecula!

  • sophia

    I love your short hair. You’ve inspired me to chop mine.

  • Heather
