Life Lately Via Instagram

Do you have Instagram? I think it's one of my favorite ways to use Social Media. I'm definitely more of a "visual" person than "literal" so it's a great platform for sharing what you are up to without using words. 

Here's what I've been up to lately.
(PS you can follow me here @everyoneneedsajess)

Last Week: Road Trip to Austin, TX
1. Cows in Brenham
2. Midnight Swimming
3. Visit with Baby Zelda
4. Downtown Austin

This weekend: Birthdays and Food Baby's
1. Hubs flip sweet tie (it's hard to tell, but the polka dots are pink!)
2. Present for the Mom-in-Law
3. Deliciousness
4. Sunday outfit

I also made one of my favorite meals:

Yummy Greek Pasta Salad Recipe
(Serves 4 people)
You will need:

8 oz. cooked pasta
1/2 cup cherry tomatoes
1 cup olives
1 cup feta
half of a cucumber, sliced into cubes
1 cup of Greek Salad Dressing

(Optional: add 1 cup of chicken, but it's perfectly fine with just veggies too!)

Mix all of the ingredients together, and chill at least one hour before eating. Super delicious and super easy!

Life has definitely been good. What something good that you've done this week?
