    Q&A Style w/ Jamee: Social Media + SO's,

    Social media lunch dates really make me smile! As I was enjoying my Matcha Lemonade and Bacon Melt with Jamee, I steered our conversation to the topic of Significant Others (SO, from here on out) and social media. I was saying (re: complaining) how after 3.5 years J has finally hit his limit with US-ies or pics in general, even being the #InstagramHusband is completely an annoyance too. I also mentioned how he doesn’t understand or really empathize with how much I enjoy SM, among other various things related to SM. To which she, “So does my Husband.” I was surprised for some reason because via SM he is super…

    WIAW – Monday (Ugly) Eats

    Being a rule follower today! Thanks, Jenn! So here is What I Ate Monday. As much as I want to, I won’t apologize for how ugly (re: foil plate) my plating and eats are. This is a genuine day in the life of my food intake. Breakfast and lunch are almost always consumed at my desk. Dinner is always up for grabs, more than half the time I don’t even know whats going to happen until it is being made or purchased somewhere! Breakfast Breakfast Sandwich: Whole Wheat bread, one slice of TJ’s Colby jack cheese, three egg whites, and a little (actually a lot) of TJ’s Organic ketchup! Coffee:…

    WIAW – Is it lunch tiiiime yet?

    Lunch might possibly be the most annoying meal of the day… Thanks, Jenn! It always seems like such a hassle, especially during the work week. If you aren’t like me, then you probably prep it the night before or in the AM, before leaving for work – which would both annoy me. However, since I live so close to work, I go home take a nap and grab something to bring back and eat at my desk. On occasion I will go out to eat, but most pics are ugly and on my desk, right in front of my computer screen. So I thought I’d share a few pics of…

    Thinking Out Loud – What Happened…

    It’s already Thursday…. Amanda at .RUNNING WITH SPOONS. Annual Meeting // Every year, here at work, we host an Annual Meeting for our grower owners. If you don’t get this, then sorry. We are a cooperative here at work, so we are owned by the growers who entrust us with their almonds. Once a year we put on a meeting to show them what we’ve been doing all year, to make their almonds make them money. Pretty simple right…it’s basically a scaled down version of a trade show. I am in charge of my division’s booth, so this week has been a little hectic at work. The show was a…

    WIAW – The Spectrum of Eats

    From “I’ll never post that food pic on IG” to “I need that in my life right now” pic! Thanks, Jenn! You can take your fancy food pics and shove them up… I’m really not bitter or anything…I promise 😉 I’ve noticed that when I eat out and snap pics, my meals look a thousand times better. When I try to concentrate on eating healthier and make/pack my meals….they look….well, how shall I say this politely…ugly!  There’s absolutely nothing fancy about what I ate yesterday, with the exception of dinner for the Bestest’s birthday. Again, that was a meal consumed at a restaurant (or two), so of course it looks…

    WIAW – The Big Easy Eats

    The Big Easy…ain’t so easy on my waistline :/ Thanks, Jenn! Every year, work sends me on a trip to a trade show. It is our largest, domestic trade show…so basically it’s a B-I-G deal! All the prep-work happens two months before, then it’s SHOW time! This year the show landed in NOLA (that’s New Orleans, for those that aren’t hip to my lingo)! Added bonus about this location, is a really good friend from High School, who goes by Hollywood, lives here. So a little fun and a little work all mixed together for 7 days in the Big Easy! Please bear with this post. The pictures are a…
