  1. You're on your way to Wanderlust right now?! Ahhhhh, that's so exciting. You'll have such a good time! And seriously, who doesn't watch A Christmas Story at least a few times every Christmas season?! It's the best. Mint and chocolate? Worst combo ever. Why do people like that?

  2. hahahaha we aren't really a pet name couple either. we might use babe or baby, but everything else cutesy is said in jest.
    tomatoes by themselves? do you eat like tomatoes in salads or stuff, or are you just talking about taking a bite out of a raw tomato? just curious. tomatoes and potatoes are my favourite foods evverrr.
    Have fun at Wanderlust!!

  3. I will eat all of your ice cream. Also, all of your mint + chocolate.

  4. Haha love that your husband calls you "dude". How did I not know you lived in Charleston!? Have an amazing weekend, girl!

  5. Jordan and I are not pet name people AT ALL. I realized the other day that I basically only ever call him Jordan. Like, seriously I can't think of anything else I ever call him. Is that sad? He calls me "love" sometimes, which I would normally think is horribly cheesy, but I actually love it. Come to think of it... I do call Jordan "dude" sometimes, though. Or the old staple: hey you. ;)

    I'm rewatching Parenthood again, and now that I'm pregnant everything is upped like 10 notches. I'm like, THIS WILL BE ME. I won't lie and say I'm not scared.

  6. Posts like this make me love you even more, Tracy.
    You are seriously hilarious.

    Uhh... and those photos up top?? LOVING the denim on denim. You can totally pull that off.

  7. avacados... mmm... I want them every day right now.

  8. Eeeks have fun! Can't wait to see pics/read about this weekend.

  9. PLL!!! PLL!!!! Haha :) I call my sister Trace sometimes and she hates it. I have seen Wedding Crashers about a million times. Love it! And I wont eat tomatoes by themselves either. Gross. Have a great time on your trip!!!!

  10. I love how dramatically different (at least from the title) all of your jobs are- so cool! You've lived in, and visited such cool places-- come live in DC next :) I wish I didn't eat ice cream- I keep trying to stop but I just can't! And no mint and chocolate?! Basically my favorite way to eat anything chocolate! I need to adapt that fourth phrase back into my life, lately it has been "I can't run I have to _____." (insert watch gossip girl most days!) Those pictures look like they belong in a magazine or ad somewhere- soo good! I hope you guys have so much fun this weekend- I can't wait to hear about it!

  11. I'm so jealous that you're on your way to wanderlust. Enjoy!! My boyfriend doesn't do the mint chocolate thing either. Sometimes I pretend to forget and buy some so I can have it all to myself ;-)

  12. Whyyy no mint and chocolate?!? That's my favorite! The "i love you baby dog" made me laugh out loud! Totally understand that! I'm so excited for you guys and your CA trip! I can't wait to see the pictures. Peter's best friend lives out there right now and we're hoping to go visit before he leaves!

  13. All this time, I thought we had so much in common, and then I came to the foods you don't eat. Um. 1. I somehow missed that you were a vegetarian, but I can handle that. 2. Give me mint and chocolate everything. EVERYTHING. 3. Ice cream is my all time favorite food group. 4. I'm with you here. Not a huge fan of tomato.

    Oh Tracy. Guess our friendship just went out the window. ;)

  14. That's okay, I'll take alll your mint + chocolate, especially if it's ice cream. Also, I guess fried green tomatoes don't count as tomatoes by themselves then? (Did we leave them in the hotel or on the table at the restaurant? I'm so bad at leftovers.) Oh and the second half of this year looks AMAZING for you and I'm so excited for you!

  15. I didn't know you were a vegetarian that is so cool (also how did i not know that hehe). And I agree with you Breakfast (which I usually skip for a shake unfortunately) is undoubtedly the best meal of the day!
