Better than an Italian restaurant Shrimp Alfredo
Hello bloggerverse! I cannot believe that it is already Sunday! I have so much in store for you in this post, including a recipe for shrimp alfredo that I made for Gareth this week.
It’s not only delicious shrimp alfredo, but it only takes like 15 minutes to make. That’s right, you can have amazing, awesome, and quick shrimp alfredo faster than going to your favorite Italian spot to get it!
Thank you for all of the comments and tweets about my Wednesday post, it is hard to put something out like that. It is hard to tell people that the person that they may see me as is not always the real person. I know that some of you may be going through the same thing and are fighting with yourself about it. Just know, that you are not alone at all.
I did a test photoshoot with MealMade, an awesome paleo delivery service out of San Francisco, on Friday. I know that when ‘interviewing’ I should not try something new, but the plate they gave me was so colorful and beautiful, I had to shoot it in direct sunlight. I feel that it made the colors that much more vibrant and gorgeous.
They were so much fun to work with, as well. I’m not sure if I’ll get the job, but it was a great experience anyway, and now I have some new photos for my portfolio!
I’m really hoping to get a few more good shoots so that I can get a new MacBook because this little man is failing me right now, especially when trying to use LightRoom and edit my photos.
Braedon and I are planning on going to the Treasure Island Flea Market with some of my friends today. I’m hoping that I can get something good out of it, maybe new props? Be on the lookout! I might make that my Wednesday post! I mean, there will be awesome San Francisco food trucks to get food from, it’s no Shrimp Alfredo, but it is good! :P
Speaking of Braedon, my little 8 month old, yes he’s 8 months old now, has been crawling and climbing on everything. I cannot believe that this time last year, I was pregnant, but not even really ready to see him! I’m so glad that I have him and Gareth right now, especially since Gareth is so keen on my dreams and helps every step of the way!
I made my first attempt at brains this week. It was a fail, but I have a new game plan and my friend’s little boy is going to get a badass cake for his birthday!
