Goodness gracious it has been a busy week! My days and nights have been super busy, so regular blog prep has been all but impossible. No complaints, but I’m going to need to tack on another day to the week so I can work it all in! My goings on are still going on…here is quick glance of what I have been up to since we last met!
My new favorite on-the-go lunch! I have passed this bad boy too many times to count and have always wanted to stop! The opportunity finally presented itself yesterday! The Bahn-Mi food truck by Auto-Bahn resides in the parking lot of the True Value Hardware store on East Bay Street is so yummie and perfect when you are in a hurry! I had the hand rolled fresh local shrimp spring roll and iced green ginger tea. The menu included curry fried tofu sandwich (all sandwiches made with Normandy farms bread, BTW), garlic park tenderloin sandwich and crispy chicken with sriracha honey drizzle and pickled okra sandwich- definitely next on the list.
~On the Christmas Wish List: Oscar: The Style, Inspiration and Life of Oscar de La Renta. Published by Assoluine this hardcover beauty looks at Oscar’s 40 years in the business. His amazing career is seen through the eyes of the women he dressed, the photographers he collaborated with and his own thoughts on his life, inspiration and the business he contributed so much to.
~Reading…NOTHING! I just finished The Paper Magician by Charlie Holmberg and am in desperate need of a suggestion. Suggestions please!!
~On the Big Screen…we just went to see Gone Girl. WOW! Though I did read the book when it was first published seeing it play out on the big screen absolutely took my breath away! Amazing performances all around. One more reason to love Tyler Perry and the kid from Almost Famous (where has he been??!). I kind of hated Ben Affleck’s protagonist and sincerely hope Rosamund Pike goes back to the UK…she was creeeeeeeeeeeeeeeepy! Did everyone notice Reese Witherspoon produced this mega-hit. You go southern girl! Go see it…and remember to treat your girlfriend, boyfriend, husband, wife with respect and love.
~Signing up for: The 2014 Reindeer Run! Saturday December 6th downtown! 5K fun run downtown that kicks off the holiday season.
~Waiting for: these camo cuties from Sam Edelman! Dying…please come today!
My weekend is dedicated to getting ready for Halloween and pre-planning all of next week’s post…so be on the lookout! Happy Thursday! XOXO, Catherine
