Thank goodness it’s Friday!
Especially after this crazy week. My work closes between Christmas and New Year’s, which is a-maz-ing. But after almost 2 weeks off, it sure is tough going back. It’s Friday, and I am just now caught up at work. Today I finally answered my last email of a very full inbox that was waiting for me on Monday. Is there anything better than an empty inbox? You almost feel lighter.
Not only has it been busy at work, but our little videography business has really been taking off. Did I ever tell you guys my husband and I started a videography business a few months ago? Because we did! It’s been something we’ve been dreaming of doing for a while, and with my sister’s wedding in October and his cousin’s wedding just a week later, it was the perfect opportunity to try our hand at filming and editing. It has been great! Shawn is beyond talented at editing films and making sure we get all the important shots. I’m his second camera girl, and I’m in charge of the website and communicating with clients. We make a great team.
So along with a busy week at work we have gotten a ton of emails from potential clients asking us to film their wedding this summer. It has been wonderful! When I was a bride-to-be I remember hitting wedding planning hard as soon as the holidays were over. Seems I wasn’t the only one to do that, *wink*.
It’s on busy weeks like this that I rely on quick and easy dinners. Enter in my easy homemade garlic bread. This cheesy garlic bread is only 4 ingredients, and comes together in minutes. I’ll whip up a quick pasta dish, and while the noodles are boiling this garlic bread is toasting up. Add in a little caesar salad on the side and bam! Simple and delicious dinner on the table in less than 20 minutes. You would think I’m Superwife.
If I’m really good, there may be enough time at the end of the night to watch an episode of Orange is the New Black, which I am obsessed with at the moment. After watching it, I am terrified to go to jail. They would sense my weakness instantly. I just hope I’d get along great with Red and she’d let me join her in the kitchen for cooking duty. Highly recommend you watch if you haven’t yet.
