On Monday night I cooked a pasta that's currently on the cover of Cooking Light right now and it was so delicious!!!
It tasted so fresh and light. Scott and I both loved it. I did a difference cheese and pasta than what they used because I already had it and didn't want to buy new but I don't think it affected it one bit. What I love most about this dish is that all of the ingredients that are in it are things that I ALWAYS have in my house. This will be one of those easy meals that I can always whip up and it will taste and feel like I spent a long time in the kitchen making something nice. You should definitely try it out for dinner sometime soon! The recipe is online if you don't want to buy the magazine.
I spent a lot of time working on the computer on Monday and Grace got in my lap and slept like this the whole time. It was so sweet! She felt like a little teddy bear.

As of yesterday and for the rest of the week I'm working for my parents at the high school state basketball tournament. My Uncle Wesley is staying with me and we're working it together. We're at the location in Fayetteville. It's not too hard to work but the days are long and it can get pretty boring. It makes a huge difference when you have someone to work it with you though. When I'm not selling shirts I keep myself entertained by spending countless hours on social media, playing solitaire and words with friends, keeping up with the latest celebrity gossip and flipping through those fashion magazines that pile up in my house.
I was reading Glamour yesterday when I stumbled upon an article that was pretty interesting. It was written by different divorce attorneys on the most common mistakes they see people make in their marriage. A lot of it was things we've all heard---Learn how to fight, share your feelings, don't ever say hurtful things because you can't ever take it back, etc. But one person wrote something that I thought was really interesting and honestly I don't think I've ever heard anyone speak much on it before so I took a picture and thought I'd share it with you all.
I love that she said 'everyone evolves. Everyone revises their life plans' because that is so true. It's great to have a 5, 10 or 20 year life plan together but it is important to remember that what you want and envision for your life at 22 may not be what you want even just 2 years later so roll with it when your spouse throws you a curveball (hopefully not a religious or political curveball though....that would definitely be challenging to work through!!). I just thought this was really great advice and I hope it spoke to you and will make you look at things differently like it did me! Keeping an open mind is always a good thing.
