Today is a full rest day for me so I actually got to sleep in this morning and I don’t have to leave the house when I get home from work tonight…that doesn’t happen very often! I’ve taken the opportunity to get some blogging work done, and these guys wanted to help out!
I wanted to share a few things with you that I’m currently loving / using every single day / can’t live without. First up, my Swiffer Sweeper. I don’t know why it took me almost a year to buy one of these, but I seriously use it every single day.
Wilson has long hair and sheds all the time, I’m talking tumbleweeds of hair. With the middle floor of our house having hardwoods, this is an essential cleaning tool for me! Here’s what it looks like before I start sweeping…
Another current favorite item is my Crystal Light Caffeine Drink! They come in little pouches and you just dump one into your water and it’s equivalent to a cup of coffee! I love this grape flavor, it reminds me of being a kid and drinking grape kool-aid (obviously the best flavor of kool-aid)! It also comes in Strawberry.
I have the greatest friends because they brought these delicious little treats to my attention. Fiber One Brownie Bars. Holy yum. When you’re dying for a piece of cake or chocolate, pick up one of these guys and your sweet tooth is satisfied! And, FIBER! That’s always a plus, right?!
How cute is this little ring holder? I have a thing for whales, I think they are absolutely adorable. Thankfully a lot of retail stores are picking up on this fact and cute little whale knick-knacks are easier to come by these days. I love this little guy! You can find him at Francesca’s for only $10!
I’ve decided that there’s something so exciting on my calendar this weekend that I have to tell you about it today.
The Atlanta Street Food Festival is in Piedmont Park this weekend and I got a Groupon deal for tickets for me and the hubs and some friends to all go on Saturday! There will be over 50 food trucks that’ll line the sidewalks of Piedmont Park and let you sample their menu items all day!
We live out in the ‘burbs so it’s a good 40 minute drive for us to get there, but I am absolutely beyond excited to get to spend the day at the park, and of course, eating! Some particular trucks that are on my “must hit” list:
2. Tracy’s Tasties: Mini cheesecakes…’nuff said
3. King of Pops: This is an Atlanta staple. The salted caramel pop is on my list of top 5 favorite desserts of all times. Drooling.
4. Mixed Up: This one I just really like their logo and it looks like it will be a blast. I’ll report back.
5. Tex’s Tacos: All I need in life is a good taco. Tex’s doesn’t disappoint.
Needless to say, I’m excited. Hopefully my excitement will help get me through my 6 mile run tomorrow and propel me into the weekend!
Does your city have any cool festivals you like to go to?
If you could make your own food truck, what would you want it to have as it’s feature item?
Mine would definitely be tacos. And margaritas.
