Weekend.

The weather this weekend was perfection! Friday evening, we had our friends over for a little BBQ of chicken and burgers. Sean loves to grill and actually does it in the winter too. Even though we all live in the same city we hadn’t seen each other since our trip to Montreal so it was nice to catch up and enjoy the nice weather.

I didn't take as many pictures as I normally do. I guess, I was trying to be a good host?

Please ignore the background. The house next door is in foreclosure. I guess, our old neighbors in a fit of rage decided to tear down their fence and expose their unkempt backyard to us. Very nice of them. Now we're going to have to put up a fence to keep their unkempt backyard hidden to us. This might be a good thing because our yard has been neglected ever since we removed the wheelchair accessible ramp. It's about time we got our yard looking a little pretty.

On Saturday, I went to a food truck festival with Colleen and her husband and a few of their friends. There were bands and little shops but the lines for each truck was outrageous. We stood in line for a truck called Slidin' Dirty for almost TWO HOURS! They were selling sliders and we really wanted to try their avocado fries. In the end, it was too hot to stand in line for food so we went out and got food. What a waste!

I think what made it a bit worst was that we all hadn't eaten much that day that way we could try as many foods from the trucks as possible. Being hot, hungry and thirsty is an awful combination.

I guess in my hungry state I didn't think anything of it when Colleen decided to take my picture. The last thing on my mind were settings. So the only pictures taken of me that day were dark. Awesome. Hopefully you get an idea of what I wore.

Sunday, I made sure to head to the gym after church.

I took Izy for a long walk and we sat in our enclosed porch while I read some magazines and snacked on strawberries and blue berries and enjoyed the light breeze that came through the windows.

It was a great weekend but I have a feeling that visiting my niece next weekend with Sean is going to top this one. Yup, I’m pretty sure of it!

Hope that you all had wonderful weekends as well!

Sounds like an amazing weekend! As amazing as avocado fries sound... definitely not worth a two hour wait! :(

YeamieWaffles said...

Faith I love your BBQ outfit, you just look so Summery and happy as well and it's great, seems like some heck of a weekend, that cherry fizz drink sounds hella good as well.

Cece said...

Well, nice pics of all the food that you didn't get to try! That is a bummer. The concept is great but maybe they needed more trucks or maybe it was just more popular then they expected. Glad you had a great weekend! Looks like the weather was great. Ours was on Fri and Sat then it went downhill from there.

Law_Fal said...

What s fun weekend. You look so cute in your spring attire. The food and drinks look yum. I think the next time I go to a food truck fest I'm smuggling in snacks so I don't get hungry waiting in line for the popular trucks lol

What a beautiful/fun weekend. I am sure next weekend will be even more fun.
I can't wait until our patio is done. Then we can start BBQ-ing outside.

Sunny said...

the food truck festival sounds like a fun idea! but a 2 hour line, ugh! especially if your blood sugar is low

LB said...

Loving all your photos and outfits!! Simply beautiful! :)

Meg {henninglove} said...

Erika Lee @ A Tiny Rocket said...

That Express top is super cute.. and it looks like you had such a fun weekend :) and those food pics totally made me hungry.

Pegster said...

Such a fun weekend. I seriously love your outfits, you had like a model pose going on until you took that one crazy pose :). I so love your style

Ashley R said...

This is the kind of weekend, weekends were made for. ;) I am obsessed with your style! And food truck fest- I need to find me one those a.s.a.p!

Jenn @ Bliss to Bean said...

Laura Darling said...

Looks like such a great weekend! I want some of that blue drink!!

Susannah said...

What a fun weekend! You definitely know how to live it up during the weekends. :-)

Katie said...

Oh man, hunger and heat are the worst combo. A food truck festival sounds like the best/fun idea ever!!! Too bad the lines were so incredibly long...boo!

Chrissy + Nate said...

How fun! Entertaining with a cook out is always a good time in my book. The food trucks would be so fun, but I agree the long lines + hungry/thirsty people does not make a good combo! And the berries look scrumptious! Have a good week!

Desiree Macke said...

What a bummer about the food trucks! The first Thursday of each month food trucks gather for all to feast. I've always wanted to go... Looks like I know what we'll be doing this week!
Love that tank from Express! Too cute!

Monique said...

Faith, that sux you had to wait so long and then didn't even get food. Food trucks can be so yummy! Glad you made the best of it though and had a great weekend regardless! I love how you've incorporated outfit posts into your lifestyle posts! Looking fab as usual!

Emily Gilbert said...

I've yet to ever tried food from a Food Truck, and there's quite a few of them around here that sell authentic Mexican tacos or something. I'm sure your restaurant food was better anyway ;). I loved both your outfits <3

josie renee said...

Sounds like a great weekend! I'm obsessed with food trucks but 2nrs is a bit much :/ and yea, hanging out with your niece is totally gonna top any weekend (except maybe the one you got married or went on a honey moon or when you have your own kids

Maria said...

hungry and thirsty after reading this and seeing all the lovely photos! ahh, that black cherry fizz drink looks and sounds so good! i LOVE your orange/coral top and the fun tank from express! you could open up your own shop with all your fun clothes! i'm sorry you waited in line so long and didn't get to try the food. that festival looks like a blast!

Whitney Cypert said...

I'm not sure how I missed this post, but it looks like you had a great weekend! I love the pictures of the tulips and of the fruit, so pretty and bright! I love food truck festivals! We went to one here last year and the lines were the same, so long! We have a cupcake truck and it's lines were the longest but you best believe I waited! : )

LWLH said...
