[Columbus Food Truck Festival]: Last Friday we walked to the Columbus Food Truck Festival and were in for a complete treat! If you are not from the area, you were missin' out, my dears! A two-day food festival with over forty trucks with more food choices than you know what to do with. A little overwhelming when you think of all the long lines, massive amounts of people, and food choices, but oh so worth it! We didn't have as many food choices as others since we eat plant based but I am actually quite thankful for that because I would have gone crazy. Miss Indecisive over here! Just as we finished our first truck [we went with a falafel pita], I was still so hungry, we went for a second one. No shame! I could have kept going but we skipped out when it started to get too crowded and headed for drinks downtown. Summer is the best, y'all!
[The Night We Lost $5]: Recently some of our closest friends came into town and spent the weekend with us. We had a wonderful time catching up and eating food. When the sun went down, we put our best poker faces on and hit the gambling tables. Charity gambling tables, that is. We attend the prettiest church in our little neighborhood and they were holding their yearly festival to raise money for their elementary school. We started with two quarters and my honeybee hit it big right off the bat! Next thing you know, the money started to roll in! We were up five dollars which was quite the jackpot on these tables. Two seconds later, he blows it at the money wheel. It was gone. All five dollars of bliss. I could have spent those pretty pennies on a venti iced coffee from Starbucks, but it is what it is, chickadees. It went to a good cause and we shared way too many laughs over those five dollar bills. And to think, it all started with two quarters. Totally worth it!
[Picnics in the Park]: This summer we had quite the tradition of heading out to Columbus Commons every Thursday for a free live show in the park, which is in the middle of downtown Columbus. Usually my honeybee would pick me up on his way home from work and we would walk together since we live so close. I was always in charge of bringing our cute blanket and Bananagrams. Between Rummikub and Bananagrams, we both can get a little competitive. It is probably one of my favorite memories from this summer.
[You Say Tomato, I Say Tomato]: My honeybee has worked hard all summer on the little garden of ours. I must admit that the most I have contributed was by making the little signs and eating the produce as soon as we picked it! Our tomato plants have recently grown out of control but other than that, our urban garden was slightly a bust. Sure we have had our share of tomatoes, kale, and a few peppers here and there, but our poor zucchinis and cucumbers were completely unsuccessful! My honeybee was a little discouraged when he would go out and water every night and not see any cucumbers or zucchinni. We were dreaming about making recipes from our cooking class in Rome on our honeymoon with produce from our own garden. Maybe next year! We sure did make a scrumptious sauce this past Sunday though! This little italian lady has a trick or two up her sleeve when it comes to cooking Italian! Mangia! Mangia!
[Our Visit To The Market]: A couple of weeks ago, my honeybee and I decided to try out a new spot in Italian Village called, "The Market." We really didn't have any idea what we were getting into other than it was the cutest little spot that I passed weekly on my way home from yoga practice. You can read more about it's concept here but basically, it's a deli, market, wine shop, coffee shop, and restaurant all wrapped into one darling space. We opted for the pizza [hold the cheese, please!] and sipped on the most delectable coffees you have ever tasted. Not even kidding! I think it's my favorite spot for a coffee date here in good 'ol Columbus. If you have yet to stop by, you really must! I don't think that you will regret it!
[Chocolate For Days]: I have had a stash of this chocolate on hand all summer and I don't plan to stop anytime soon! Whenever I head out to shop, I always make sure to stop at William Sonoma to pick up a new bar. I'm not sure what I enjoy better- the chocolate or the cutest packaging! Holy swoon!
[Stripes Forever]: A couple of weeks ago, I swooned over this print from Evelyn Henson. I couldn't stop thinking about it, so naturally I had to order one for myself. Well you lovely people, I am so happy that I did because it was made for me! My love for stripes is never ending! Isn't it adorable?
[Feelin' Fancy]: Last Friday I spilled the beans that I hopped the fence and went blonde! Don't you worry my dears, I am still feelin' fancy! My honeybee picked me up some pretty blooms last week and snapped this photo of me with my new blondie locks. What do you think?
That's what has been happening in this wonderful world o'mine! What about you? Have you done anything wonderful lately?
