fill in the blank friday..on saturday.

sorry my blanks are a bit late!  yesterday was husbands birthday and we both had to work as well, so it was a busy day.  this week Lauren has been a bit preoccupied with a newborn so she had Erin from A Symphony of Grace write up the blanks for us!  happy blanking, and don't forget to link up with Lauren!


1.   My favorite place i've ever traveled to is     The Big Island in Hawaii with my husband, it was the best trip with beautiful scenery and lots of awesomely fun things to do  .

2.    Isreal     is somewhere I'd love to go someday.

3.  I pass the time on a plane (or bus, or car ride or train) by     listening to music and reading until I get motion sickness :)   .

4.  My three must-haves when I travel are     my iPhone  ,    earbuds   and     a book . 

5.  My favorite travel companion is    husband {aka, Mark}  .

6.  The craziest thing that ever happened to me while traveling is    getting bumped up to first class seating on the way home from Hawaii and getting to eat a huge yummy meal with spacious leg room :)  Or sitting in the denver airport with my mom for like 12 + hours  .

7.  The most exotic food I've ever tried while traveling is    n/a.  i don't eat scary things  .

8.  If I could live anywhere else, I'd live in    California, 7 days of rain a year?!!  heck yes .

9.  I have been to    12   
states in the U.S.

Happy weekending everyone!

wedding video

for me, planning a wedding again would be terrible, I've said this many times in many posts...planning my wedding was really hard! BUT if I were to do it again, I would hire Paperback Weddings to make a wedding video for me, because they are truly amazing.

this is my favorite one, I have to admit that I cried ALOT while watching it :)  enjoy, and for more visit their website.

8 little things of me.

1.  Husband and I actually went to middle and high school together, but never talked.  We actually met up through Facebook.

2.  Cooler Ranch Doritos are my downfall.

3.  Ecclesiastes is my favorite book in the bible.

4.  When I was little I told people I got my dimple from the car door {I was hit in the face with the corner after all, it made sense at the time!}.

5.  BSB will always have my heart.

6.  I can make some pretty mean pad thai.

7.  No matter what I do my husband always ones up me on the 'how much I love you' scale.

8.  I love to read and wish I had more time for it {do you have a goodreads account?  if so, find me {tracy crocker} so that I can steal book ideas from you!}

fill in the blank friday!

thank goodness its friday because this week has been the worst.  for some reason this has been one crazy emotional week.  i'm not proud to say my poor husband probably things i've gone crazy.  yesterday seemed better, so we'll just hope this weekend still heads in the {tracy is normal} direction.

fill out your blanks and then go link up at the little things we do.


1.   The last thing I ate was     blackberry nutri-grain bar.  yum! .

2.   The last song I listened to was    "Heaven is Here" by Dashboard Confessionals.  my morning mix is rockin' this morning :)     .

3.  Using the letters in my name I can spell    {Tracy} art, act, tray...is it bad that this is all my eyes see at the moment?     .

4.  If I had to dress in one color for the rest of my life I would pick     definitely blue.  1-for jeans   2-blue is the only color that looks consistently good on me!  3-so many different shades to work with!   .

5.  If you were to look in my bag right now you'd find    glasses in a pink case, 'The Kite Runner', gold bangles, loads of chapstick and lip glosses, wallet, hair ties and bobby pins and probably a bunch of other random items  .

6.  When I finish filling in the blanks I'm going to    shower and get ready for work  .

7.  My all time favorite song to dance to is    'Paint it Black' originally by Rolling Stones but i always get to dance to it at a 'Boys Next Door' show, they are awesome :)  .

happy friday, happy blanking and happy weekending!

fill in the blank friday

yay, another Friday has arrived and I am ready for the weekend! Although I have had the last three Mondays off and this one coming up will be my first one back, I am slightly nervous that it will draaaag on. But first it's the weekend and I need to stay positive! Happy blanking, and don't forget to link up over at the little things we do!






1. One of my favorite things to do when I have free time is watch a show or movie with husband while eating freshly popped popcorn or any flavor of ice cream .

2. When I have free time I tend to blogstalk, watch gossip girl, read a book, play angry birds/ bejeweled or knit. Most of the time a combination of sorts :) .

3. If I had an entire day completely to myself I would Stay in my sweats and veg out in front of the tv whilst doing all of the things listed in #2. I LOVE stay at home alone days.

4. I would prefer to spend my free time (alone or with others...) both, hanging out with others brings happiness and joy, but I get grumpy if I havent had much alone time!

5. Most of my free time happens Thursdays and the weekends, my days off.

6. The best thing about free time is I can do whatever I want, and free time with the man I love is an extra bonus, we both have this Saturday Sunday off, amazing!

7. The next time I have free time I should probably Change the bed sheets and clean off my crazy unorganized desk but instead I'll probably sit around and snuggle with husband :)


happy Friday ladies! I hope you enjoy the first weekend of the new year :)

reason # 21

reason # 21 why I absolutely adore my husband : he encourages me to read my bible daily and prays for us in bed every night. there is NOTHING like praying together while snuggling :)

2011 holidays


the last few weeks of last {whattt?} year were crazy hectic.  a trip to Coos Bay  the 17th-19th, big sis Naomi in town 20th-23rd, family train ride to the North Pole (via mt. hood polar express) on christmas-eve-eve, husband getting sick, me getting sick, the awesome fondue party with the 'Grassgrabbers' and Watkins and finally bringing in 2012 with the Kurkinen crew {have you met their ginger mohawk-ed 5 month old?!!  cute cute and more cute}
                                             
husband and my first married christmas turned out wonderfully.  we opened stockings and presents all before 9:45 am and hung out in our sweats until 6 pm :)  there may have been lots of snuggling and movie watching involved.

the new year has started off nicely, making mass amounts of shepherds pie for an organization called HOMEpdx and a wonderful meal and service with our theophilus family.  mr. crocker and i are really excited to see where 2012 might take us!  as far as resolutions go, i'm planning on being fast-food free for the year {maybe more} and just being a healthier me.  husband is planning on helping me out but i might need a few more accountability partners {and workout buddies}.  if you are in my area, lets go for a jog!

i hope your holidays and new year was filled with love and fun :)
