Snapshot Series

Last night I was thumbing through my phone and realized that I take so many pictures on it each week that it's ridiculous. I like to snap random things throughout the day, cool things, things that make me happy and typically a lot of food (duh). A lot of these either get deleted or moved into a folder on my computer and then I had a brilliant moment, ah-ha! Something quick & easy to share on the blog that really does capture my week. I think I'll start sharing these snapshots on Saturdays to re-cap the week, but since I'll be on vacation this weekend I figured I'd give y'all the first taste of my snapshot series!

This was snapped on Monday as I realized that it's been a full year since I arrived at TCU for my internship last summer. It's really crazy how time flies and I can't believe how much things have changed. I thought more about it this morning as it's also the anniversary of the Joplin tornado which was a result of an awful storm that we felt in the Ft. Worth/Dallas area and one of the first time I saw hail.

Last weekend I traveled to Raleigh for a shower for my friend Whitney who's getting married in just a few weeks! Her shower was very much to her personality complete with Mexican food, sangria and themed favors. I cannot wait to stand by her side in a few weeks when she marries her love!

Summer quinoa salad! I definitely owe y'all my recipe, or at least loose instructions, on this awesome dish. I love pasta salads, and so figured I'd experiment with quinoa and lots of veggies. It was awesome and I inhaled the entire dish in just a few days.

Can you see that? $3.06!! Yes, that's how much I paid for gas yesterday. Thank you Bi-Lo for $0.25 off per gallon. I always forget to use those rewards and so they had racked up. 

Hope y'all have a fabulous Tuesday and that you take time to enjoy the little things and simple pleasures in life. I always love going through and looking at photos on my phone to remind me of just how blessed I am!
