  • Averie @ Averie Cooks

    Thanks for featuring my Peanut Butter Cookie Butter 🙂 You’re so sweet! I wish I could give you a jar right now!

    I always love your lists. So many great links. That hair bully one made me LOL and so true! Have a wonderful weekend, Tracy 🙂

  • Amy

    Hi Tracy, thanks for the mention! The biscuits sure disappeared fast and mum and dad didn’t even get to taste any 🙂
    Apparently my model name would be My Rouge – sounds like a cheap perfume…
    I’ve heard so much about True Detective (not showing in Aus yet!) going to make the boyfriend find it for me – have to bribe him with some lemon chicken perhaps?

  • Kelsey

    Ooo, I just started The Fault in Our Stars this week and I’m loving it.

  • Emily

    Oh Tracy, The Fault in Our Stars is so good, but I hope you’re prepared to cry.

  • Jesse

    WAIT, peanut butter cookie butter?!?! might be too dangerous for my home.

  • Annemarie Field

    Model name Nema Bleu. Thanks for I Love Lists Friday. I look forward to it every week!

  • Natalia

    I’m Talia Violette…. and I should be a painter???????

  • Jamie

    Je suis Ami Vert. Merci! My hidden talent is Science (hence a BS in Fine Arts….) And I’m a pisces too. Your lists rock my Fridays, Tracy. = )

  • Elana

    I got painting but I knew that already.

    Ugh, those real estate prices are depressing!

  • Eden

    Tracy! Thank you so much for the link to our party buying guide!! LOVE your site! Cheers 🙂

  • Christine @ BookishlyB

    That salary piece is a bit off- they’re looking at mortgage only. They assume you’re putting down 20% and not really counting in property taxes, PMI, insurance, etc…., therefore jacking up what you need to make even more. Yes, I know, happy thoughts, haha.

    • Tracy

      property tax…sigh….

      • Christine @ BookishlyB

        And in the Bay Area… man! Luckily I live a bit out of Orange County, so our rates aren’t too atrocious, but it’s crazy how much is really included in your house payment. Such a sham 😉

    • Emily

      I had never even had a gas bill before we bought our house! The mortgage payment wasn’t too much more than our rent, but man there were a lot of extra expenses I didn’t quite comprehend.

  • Stefanie @ Sarcastic Cooking

    Hahahah OMG I cannot stop laughing at my model name… Fanie Bleu hahaha!

  • Lane

    Hi Tracy! My brother just sent this to me and I couldnt believe it wasn’t on your list!
    FRENCH Cats playing patty cake.

  • Nourished Life Gratitude List 2014 – Week Eight | Thoroughly Nourished Life

    […] Tracy from Shutterbean had mentioned my Espresso Hazelnut Flourless Chocolate Cookies in her ‘I Love Lists, Friday‘ post this week. Thank you […]

  • Heidi - Apples Under My Bed

    I got a painter too, but I’m fairly certain I suck at it, in all “complete, totally fine with it not even being modest” honesty. Bill Murray is god.
    Heidi xo

  • fusilliamy

    I can’t wait to watch the Bill Murray interview. Sometimes it’s SO HARD being a Pisces. My new alias is M Pourpre. I think about True Detective ALOT. And The Fault in Our Stars is just…I mean…so good! I almost read it in one sitting.

  • Lily (A Rhubarb Rhapsody)

    I always fall prey to the hair bully which is why I get my husband to trim my hair now! Those beard photos gave me the giggles, my husband has a beard and I’m pretty sure he’s quite jealous.

  • Preeti

    I loved the post about changing dreams & success too. I just came across the blog/website Beautiful Mess, thanks to Feedly recommendations & that was the first highlighted post. Love that it made to your friday list too.

  • Lizy Tish

    Lots of great stuff in your list this week! I love Kristin Wiig too – just watched “Girl Most Likely” which was really good. Love that hostess-like cake! Definitely enjoyed Emma’s post – lots of inspiration there as an aspiring blogger.

  • Leslie

    I took that Buzzfeed test and got Scientist! What?!? It would definitely be a change from my current job–Librarian!

    Love your links, they are the highlight of my day!
