1. road trip to oregon
voodoo doughnuts in portland. maple bar with bacon on top.
i’m salivating right now… yep, they are THAT good.
2. bet on “the gray horse”
at emerald downs in renton.
greg and I used to go on dates there 25 years ago. our kids love it when we take them… it’s been a few years since we’ve done that. and I win just about every time when I bet on the gray horse. seriously.
3. movie night
or day time. i dont’ care. i just know i want to see THIS movie with ALL 4 of us. and have buttered popcorn and diet coke.
the original vacation movie with chevy chase was our family favorite when i was a kid. i want our kids to have a family favorite of our own. hoping it will beat our favorites so far… elf, step brothers, employee of the month… you get our humor.
4. baseball in seattle
a mariners game.
just one this year. love the outdoors. love the fresh air. love smelling the garlic fries (although hate the taste). love the cold beer. love the fans. love it all.
5. something homemade
i love this box. i saw it on pinterest. i’m going to make my kids each one that fits their personality. i’m thinking brooke will like the one above. mason talks about going to college in cali so maybe they will both be the same.
either way, for some reason i’m feeling really sentimental lately and want to do something for my kids… from my heart.
5 weeks until brookie goes to college.
i’d better get started on this little bucket list of mine.
we are so busy this week that i wanted to remind myself there is still time to make some awesome 4th of July fun.
yes, i cook, i bake, i craft.
i must make something like this for our bathroom.
and put it directly in front of the toilet.
and of course have it framed in some funky, frilly, cool, hip frame.
ps… you know if you want info on the art I post, visit my pinterest page. I love love love my “art” pinterest page by the way!
i think it’s time to make my “summer bucket list”.
family. friends. colleagues. parents. grandparents. Godparents. bloggers. teachers. authors. artists. chefs. actors. bakers. artists. and the people i run across every day that i will never get the chance to meet in person.
i want a time out.
can’t use the car.
can’t come out of my room.
can’t answer the phone.
just “don’t do anything”… you hear me???
sounds like a perfect weekend to me!
ps….. I just discovered this artist… ASHLEY LONGSHORE. my new favorite obsession. take a peek at her art. you will love it too. I promise.
whatever the age…
PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE put the toilet seat down.

i’m working on a project for brooke’s 18th birthday. in may.
looking through hundreds of old photos. spending hours reminiscing about the past. little kids. seems like so long ago… yet, just yesterday.
and it dawned on me…
why aren’t these photos framed? why aren’t they hanging in my home for me to look at every day.
i just need to figure out a fun way to hang them.
do i want them framed in black? or white?
or make a piece of art out of them?
what rooms do i put them in? more than one?
or do i try a new project? this one looks fun. and i can print it out at home. how cool is that?
all i know is i need to at least start forming a small pile of the ones i want to look at every day. then i will decide what project to take on. i’ve got hours of pile making looking at me. and i can’t wait.
p.s. you can find these ideas (and the creator of them) on my pinterest site… www.pinterest.com/tracyfisherart.
