Treat Yourself Tuesday #21

Once again, I am linking up with Becky for another installment of Treat Yourself Tuesday.  I really look forward to this post each week.  Check out Becky's blog to see all of the linkups and read about why it is so important to treat yourself!!


This week I treated myself by updating my blog header.  Some fresh pics and a more streamlined look.  Thanks for the great idea Anne!!  You should pop over to her blog to check out her new header-it is awesome!!  Great logo and amazing pics!  Bonus-her blog is great too! :)

I also treated myself to a new coffee place.  I was early for my hair cut, so I stopped in to grab a coffee at the adorable little shop next door.  They make all of their syrups in house and they have a good sandwich menu.  I'm going to have to start scheduling my haircut over lunch from now on!

Speaking of hair cut, that was another treat!  A guy in the salon was handing out beers and I didn't want to be rude...so I happily accepted his offer.  He was very impressed with the coozie that I keep in my purse at all times!  Who doesn't like a drink while getting a hair cut?!?

I just had a quick trim, but I always love having a blow out after the cut.  My hair feels so light and fresh!  Plus, I don't have the patience to make it as straight as my stylist does!

I treated myself to some fun finds at World Market this week as well.  These cute lanterns were on sale and I couldn't resist!  I think they will be so cute on the patio for parties!!

I also found this adorable wine tote that is on sale for $4.49.  That's a steal!

I mentioned the word walk to Porter on Saturday morning and he got very excited.  He wanted to go right then!  So, being the sucker that I am, I decided to take him out for a 3 mile run/walk instead of my planned run.  This is the beauty of cutting back on running...planned runs can take a back seat to fun walks with pets.  We even managed to stop and smell the roses wild flowers!!  :)

How did you treat yourself this week?

Food Truck Fun

We had amazing weather this weekend. Bobby and I hit up a food truck event benefiting Harvesters, a local food bank.  We decided to get tickets to try each truck-6 in total.  The event was really well run-with tons of water available and a fun atmosphere!

This random guy was walking around with his bird...definitely odd!

There was even a fun band that kept the crowd energy up.

The first truck we went to had cajun food.  We got red beans and rice and jambalya.  They were great when you took a bite with both on your spork!  The second truck was BBQ.  We got a chipotle chicken slider and a pulled pork slider.  These were our favorite food of the event.  The third truck served chinese food.  Fried rice and bochi (chicken leg stuffed with fried rice and tossed in the sauce of your choice).  It wasn't our fave, but it wasn't bad.  Forth, we went to the most well known truck.  They served burgers.  So we got a spicy chicken slider and a beef slider with bacon jam and coleslaw.  It was really good, but the BBQ truck had the best food!!

The fifth and sixth trucks both had crazy long lines.  We decided to choose one and skip the last truck.  It was a good decision.  We went with the cupcake and coffee truck.  We waited in line for an hour!!!  They ran out of cupcakes 3 people in front of us, so we settled for muffins (which we saved for breakfast Sunday) and smoothies.  The smoothies were really delicious...so delicious that I didn't even take a picture!!

We had a great day!!  Do you ever eat at food trucks?  What is your favorite food from a food truck?
