He’s been really into books lately and I AM SOOOOOOOO THRILLED. We spend a lot of time in the library together.

Also…he’s really good at Where’s Waldo books and we checked one out and some jerk kid CIRCLED Waldo on EVERY SINGLE PAGE with a marker. WTF.

  • Jane M

    I love this weekly series photos and etc. On a side note, I’m doing a weekly money saving challenge and I look forward to you spelling out the week # so I know how much loot to put in my envelope!!! I THOUGHT I knew what I was saving up for come week 52 but now….. Welp I have a little over 6 months to make up my mind!!!!! Weeeee!

  • Millie l Add A Little

    VERY excited about the recipe Tracy! Also, is it bad that I laughed out loud at your anger towards the kid who circled Waldo? Buts riotously, WHY WOULD YOU DO THAT?!?!
    Have a lovely week ahead 🙂

  • Jennifer

    What are the yellow orbs in the at-home salad?

  • Victoria

    What a week! I feel like I always say that…:)

    I love the feet and the signs of summer and the sleeping Cooper with lollipop in hand and I’m excited for the recipe coming soon!

  • Beth

    “Don’t touch my foot!” made me burst out laughing, I’m the same way. I hope you rocked the popped up collar look, I always want to, then chicken out soon as I head out the door!

  • Shaleen

    Are you kidding me with that last photo? Gorgeous.

  • Emily @ Life on Food

    Are the peaches? I cannot wait. Also, totally look like Madonna!

  • Allyn

    Hooray for Shel! Always one or my favorites, right up there with Roald Dahl! Also, major awesome extensions! Loved your podcast about wanting to get them. Looking forward to updates

    • Tracy

      We love Shel! And Roald Dahl! (we finished the BFG a few weeks ago).

  • Jessica

    Wonderful post this week, and I’m so excited for the peach recipe! Thank you for letting us peek into your world once again.

  • maija

    I really hope to hear about the eyelashes in your next podcast! So crazy and fascinating. Lots of great moments captured this week. I want to read a Light in the Attic now as I remember loving that book as a kid.

    • Tracy

      Noted! I will talk about it on the next one we record (won’t be on the latest though).

  • Emily D.

    Oh my gosh! The drawing of Joy and her kitty is the cutest. And, I am always excited for/about peaches. Always.

  • Amy @ Thoroughly Nourished Life

    Joy does work! And so does the inimitable Shutterbean! You certainly have had a full and busy week.
    I can’t wait to see what that pan full of goodness leads to. Also, I definitely have an egg craving now. Breakfast for dinner will be happening I think 🙂

  • joy the baker

    i love your baby boo!

  • Cindy

    I was so excited for you and Megan to meet! and carbfest is always my favorite!

    I cannot wait for that peach recipe…I can tell from that syrupy action that it’s gonna be amazing.

  • LE

    Was that week day lunch at the Westbrae Biergarten? What did you think?

    • Tracy

      I liked the sausage. The fries were a little cold (but I still ate a ton) and the beer was excellent.

  • tara

    You take such awesome photos!

    That cappuccino is perfect! I’m so jealous.

    Haha haircute. I love puns.

    Circled the Waldo?!?! LAME. People who don’t respect books suck.

  • aida mollenkamp

    Yes to “A Light In The Attic!” I can’t wait until my nieces/nephews are old enough to enjoy it! xo

  • Hilary

    Ah Cooper is such a cutie pie! 🙂

    The library love makes my heart so happy.

    I’m curious – what polish do you do on your toes? I very rarely do dark on my toes but you inspire me to do so!

  • Ashley

    Eyelash extensions are so fun. I laughed at myself every morning for thinking how much prettier I felt with no makeup on! They are a little high maintenance… I have a friend that has had them on for 3 years now, crazy!

    • Tracy

      Whoa! 3 years??! I wonder how I feel once they’re gone! Hopefully not sad…

  • AnEmilyB

    I think there need to be legal repercussions for the kid that circled the Waldos. Isn’t there a Library Master General CSI or something? Or did I just now think of the best new show on FX?

    • Tracy

      Hahaha. Casey was like… THERE HAS TO BE A WAY FOR US TO FIGURE OUT WHO DID IT.

  • Megan

    Best lunch! And yes! Total instant friends. I wish we could get lunch every week.

  • Stacey

    I love your every day life posts! The pictures warm my heart, it’s so lovely to see the beauty in the small things we do every day 🙂

  • Amanda

    Great post! I really like the bottle cap pic, there’s something about finding what you need by chance just when ya need it!

  • Lizy Tish

    Oh my gosh – that Where’s Waldo thing. The way you wrote it just cracked me up! How annoying. That book should be taken out of circulation. Or labeled with “Spoiler Alert”. And so sweet that Cooper loves Joy.

  • Heidi - Apples Under My Bed

    HAHAHA “some jerk kid”. Totally, right? It’s not called “There’s Waldo”…Jerk. x

  • Elise

    As a librarian, the photo of Cooper reading on the floor makes me so happy! On the other hand, boo to the person who circled Waldo’s whereabouts!!

  • I went to San Francisco! (Again!)

    […] was lucky enough to meet Tracy Shutterbean on my trip! She said it right in her post when she said “instant friends.” It’s true! Being two girls who appreciate a good […]
