7 year old pasta

Friday is finally here. This week went by a little slow, am I right?

I did a new{ish} thing to me {lately any way}, and have been working out the moment I wake up. I’ve done it all 5 days this week and its both a relief and a killer. I’m still half asleep as I do my ab video. If I were smart, I wouldn’t have the first thing I do once I wake up, be an exercise that lets me lie on the ground. I do almost the whole dvd with my eyes closed, they’re just not ready to be opened.

But I’ll be honest, its so nice having it out of the way for the entire day. No worrying or stressing when I’ll get around to working out. Its done! And that’s probably the one of two reasons I do it. Here’s hoping I stick to it for longer than a week. (just keeping it real).

I wanted to update and clarify about the demise of the job I went after. I called my retirement company and they actually said I would be able to take that job and keep my retirement and health insurance (hooray), however…they must approve the position and that would take up to 60 days from the day they hire me. I’m pretty sure no employer ever would be ok with waiting for their new employee to start after an additional 60 days, so I called and took my name off their list. The guy I spoke with said it was the right thing.

That’s all there is to it.

I’ve been doing a lot of different recipes lately. Those outside the pinterest kind. In books even! I figure I have a ton of cookbooks on my counter, I might as well make good use of one of them. I’m so glad I did because I’ve had some delicious dinners.

There’s one that I made that I’ll be making again and {will attempt} to document so all the world can make it…or just my Mom, since she asked.

I’ve refrained from sharing all the food pictures on Instagram, but that’s not to say I haven’t taken at least 3 pictures of my dinner every night. Just in case I break down and post it. So for all those who get sick of seeing them in your feed, you’re welcome.

I’ll leave you with a photo that was well before {my} iPhone days, before Instagram and certainly before blogging.
were there even smart phones then?

Two things strike me with this.
1. Social media is in no way to blame for people feeling they need to share what they ate for dinner.
2. That after 7 years, I still have this picture.

I distinctly remember being very proud of myself for making this pasta, and sent it off to my mom to show her. (I’m a visual person, therefore everyone else has to be too).

Have a happy and safe weekend everyone.

I think you've made a somewhat profound statement about social media not being to blame for sharing what we eat. People just do all kinds of bonding over food, we appreciate pretty things, and we like to share. So instagram away friend. I like food photos.
