So I was at the dentist the other day flipping through a magazine (a dentist appointment without kids tends to feel like a trip to the spa...) when I came across an issue of People that had a fun feature on the back page called "Last Word." It's basically a series featuring celebrities answering questions about the last time they did this or that, and I found it to be really interesting. It reminds me a lot of my Currently posts, and I thought it would be fun to adapt the series here.
For the first installment I wanted to start with a blog friend of mine, Tracy. Tracy is the author of Shutterbean, which is chock full of amazing recipes and fun tidbits from her everyday life. It's a favorite read, and I'm excited to have her here to kick things off.
So here we go - A Few Last Things with Tracy of Shutterbean:
Last thing you cooked: Big Sunday breakfast for my family. We had
scrambled eggs, mushrooms with spinach and pesto, bacon, grilled toast
and home fries. Weekend breakfasts are my favorite.
Last time you felt nervous: Waiting to hear test results from the
doctor. My crazy brain can't help but reference all these
Debbie-Downer scenes from movies while I wait to hear what's up. I'm
wired to set myself up for disappointment so I've been working on
being more positive and staying present.
Last big thing you splurged on: I just went on a Kindle book buying
spree while I was out of town. They make it so dang easy! I hope to
get through all of them by the end of the summer. We'll see...
Last gift you received: My husband bought me a super cute Kate Spade bag for Valentine's Day. I normally carry a gigantic bag and using
this one has been a good practice in simplifying and evaluating the
essentials. I love it.
Last song you listened to: Holding On for Life by the Broken Bells
It's super catchy and has a Bee Gees vibe. My son Cooper and I play it
on repeat while commuting to school.
Last place you vacationed to: Just got back from Ashland Oregon. It
was a blog trip but I went by myself and getting out of my everyday
routine made it feel vacation-y.
Last time you were moved to tears: Watching an episode of Oprah's
Super Soul Sunday. Whenever I see Oprah get emotional, I tear up.
That lady does things to me.
Last blog you really fell in love with: Dine X Design My friend
Kristin re-branded and started a new website. I love everything she &
her contributors post. The photography/design is impeccable. She has
the most incredible taste.
Thanks so much Tracy!
