Weekending – The First of November

Happy November.  This weekend was certainly jammed packed.  I have finally reached the age where my Facebook feed is now dominated with everyones adorable children, instead of lingerie and wings aka devil and angel costumes.  Or my favorite is the sexy cops and boxers.  I tried to snap a lot over this past weekend.  It was absolutely gorgeous out but I wouldn’t mind just a little bit cooler.  Linking up with B!

We started off on Saturday at the St. Pete Food Truck rally.  It was apparently the largest food truck rally  in the US, they were trying to beat a Guinness World Record.  It was held right by the water, which the breeze coming off the water was very helpful.  I don’t know why I decided to wear jeans but it was a bad idea.St. Pete Food Truck RallyFood Truck RallySt. Pete Food TruckGrilled Cheese Food TruckMeatballs Food Truck

It ended up being so hot we decided to head over to our favorite little Mexican spot Casita Taqueria in St. Pete.  Crazy I know, we left a food truck rally for another place to eat but air conditioning was calling our name. It’s like you know when you’re at a football game and it’s scorching hot out and then someone walks by with a steaming turkey leg…….then you think to yourself “how can anyone eat that right now???” Yup.  Kind of like that.  Casita Taqueria did not disappoint.  Locals you have to try it! I get the bowl every time we go.Casita Taqueria

We made it home for a quick change and then headed over to the hockey game.  There are a few Boston teams that I still cheer for but I do really love Lightning hockey.  When you grow up in a city that revolves around sports, any other city pales in comparison.  However, Tampa is really behind hockey and I love seeing the city camaraderie with it!Tampa Bay Lightning Game

After that we headed out for a little Halloween fun.  We made sure to hightail it out before it got crazy downtown.

Sunday was spent getting ready for the week and my parents came up to join us for dinner.  Family is everything and it was such a nice cap to the weekend!

I had tons of giveaways last week.  Make sure to check your email because I contacted everyone over the weekend!  This month I’ll also have tons of great giveaways since I’ll be celebrating my two year blog anniversary!  Insanity.  I remember like it was yesterday sitting at Mark’s parents house with my computer in my lap scouting down all the Thanksgiving sales to launch this space with.  Definitely always evolving and growing over here.

I hope everyone had a wonderful weekend and I can’t wait to check out all your Halloween fun!

    Love a good Food Truck rally. So many delicious choices out there, yum, I’m hungry right now, haha.

    TBL was one of the first teams [besides the CAPS] I cheered for growing up. I really started following them the year they won the Stanley Cup in 2005, it was soooooo cool watching it all unfold. Glad you were able to get to a game, they are so fun right?

    Cheers to a 2 year blogivesary. I remember finding your blog right at the beginning, you’ve kept my attention every since :)!

  7. food trucks!! they’re huge in my city and they always have food truck events. you’re so lucky you have nice weather still; we have been having grey skies and rain with cold, windy weather :(

  8. OMG girl, I don’t know how you were wearing jeans. It was like 90 degrees when we got to Tampa on Saturday! But yay for food trucks. I always love a good food truck rally! And I must hit up that Mexican place sometime, looks delicious! <3, Pamela Sequins & Sea Breezes

  9. I have to agree with Pamela about you wearing jeans when it’s 90 degrees. No wonder you were hot!! I mean your outfit is super cute, but I would have been way too hot. Anyways.. that food truck event sounds like fun. That Mexican food looks delicious too. I’m glad that you enjoyed your weekend and time with your folks too. I hope that you have a lovely day today too!! :-)

  16. Darcy says:

    I’ve never been to a hockey game before! I think it would be so fun!

  17. Kaitlin says:

    I do love fall, but I’m semi-jealous you were too hot this weekend!!!! I wear shorts when it cracks 60 (lol) so would have been dying!!!!!

  18. Nadine says:

    We have a food truck event here every year too, and every year it is too stinking hot for it as well!!! Ours is in September though. I went the first year and now I dont even bother because you are right…who can eat that when it is so hot!?

  19. I totally get leaving an outdoor thing for something air conditioned. Who can eat in that heat?! I’m glad it’s cooling off here, though. The 70s are so much better than the 90s/100s!

  20. Karly says:

    Um, hello food truck heaven! Looks right up my alley. :) I’m glad you had a fun weekend, despite it being so warm! I’m glad I’m not the only one that only sees photos of everybody’s kids now on Halloween – funny how things change.

  21. We went to a food truck fest a few years ago when it was super hot like that and I’ve never been back again it was so bad! lol. Sounds like you had a perfect weekend! Can’t believe you’ve only been blogging for 2 years. You’re such a pro. :)

  22. Nikki says:

    Loved all your snaps, I would totally leave the outdoors for precious air conditioning. That mexican bowl looks ah-mazing!!! I never thought I would miss seeing the skeezy costumes all over facebook, but nowadays it’s mostly babies and clever/punny costumes!

  23. Rachel says:

    Happy blogiversary! Bummed I wasn’t able to make it over to that food truck rally, it sounded fab!

  24. Lindsay says:

    Yes please on the bowl! I could eat it everyday, I feel like it’s the healthiest way to eat mexican which is my FAV!

  25. Food trucks are like a myth to me. haha. I see them in all the movies, I fantasize about eating from one, and living in blah Ohio we don’t have any. Like I want to buy one and drive it around to fill that void. Must. experience. food. trucks! (; Loved your weekend snaps as always, though my toddler jumped and was scared at the hockey snaps!

  26. Nichole says:

    I went to the food truck rally a last year, and it was at the fairgrounds in August. I am so glad they moved the location.

  27. Looks like a wonderful weekend! Food trucks are so much fun! And I loved your outfit!

  29. Myra says:

    OMG that bowl looks amazing!! Gimme gimme gimme! That food truck festival looks amazing, but I would definitely be on my way to an A/C’d place too if it was that freakin’ hot outside. Haha. xo

  30. Dani says:

    I LOVE food trucks and food truck festivals! But I hear ya, I probably would’ve headed towards A/C as well! That bowl looks delish. Sounds like fun, well-rounded weekend!

  31. Christina says:
