As I am sure you, my lovely readers, have noticed. I took a semi-blogging hiatus. A lot has been going on, and I got overwhelmed with it all. Thank you for sticking around, even though my post were very sporadic. You guys are the best.
But, I'm back. Only down side, I am recovering from strep throat. I am feeling much better. Now. Last weekend, different story.
I thought today, I would share with you what I have been drooling over all day.
Ruche's new summer look book.
I am all about the turquoise, yellow, and pink-ish red this summer. Such warm, happy colors.
The whole look book is filled with beautiful, poolside photos. Take a peek, I am sure you will be drooling in no time too.

- The lack of posts these past two weeks. I have been in a Jeans & Ts funk that has been hard to shake. Any suggestions? Besides be less lazy. Haha
- Extreme Couponing. I have decided to try my hand at it. With the way things are going we need to save anywhere we can and groceries eat up a lot of our cash. Do any of you coupon? Have you been successful at it? Any tips? I have been doing so much reading up on the subject. I hope it works out. Seems complicated but I'm hoping it will get easier as I go along.
- Harry Potter this weekend. It is so bittersweet. I am excited to see the last movie, I have heard so many great things about it. But I'm sad because its the end for a 2nd time (the first was reading book 7). I grew up with Harry Potter. My grandmother bought me the 1st book when it came out back in 1998 when I was 12. And I have followed the golden trio ever since. I truly feel like part of the Potter Generation.
I have to keep telling myself: Don't cry because it's over. Smile because it happened.
How about you guys? Happy, sad, excited, devastated?
- Google+, I think I'm in love. Such a great social media site. I have always had issues with Facebook so I am thrilled for the change. If you want in on the fun, email me your email, and I'll send you an invite.

While we were visiting Miami for the long weekend we were introduced to the "Gourmet Food Truck" craze that has been happening in a lot of the big cities around the country.
We went to a local bar (Tobacco Road) that was hosting a Food Truck event. There were somewhere around 15 Food Trucks all together serving everything from grilled cheese to sushi. It was a weird but fun event. The whole thing is a cool little niche, you can bring the whole family, try a bunch of different types of food (with some weird twists in some cases), and spend a little less than you would at any chain restaurant ($7-10 per entree).
I have to say everything we tried was very tasty.
This was my grilled cheese. Spiced apples and havarti cheese grilled to perfection on multi-grain bread
Here are some of the food trucks we stopped at:
Topped the night off with some nutella & banana fro-yo. yum.
I was pretty into the whole thing. Now, I need is for Jacksonville to catch up with everyone else.
Have any of you experienced the Gourmet Food Truck Craze? What are your thoughts? Love it/Hate it?
