Friday Favs

Happy Friday!! Can't believe we are into May! This week, my favs include:

Food Truck!! Memphis recently passed a law that allows food trucks and I'm loving Revival Southern Food Company. If you're in the area, I strongly recommend that you follow them on Facebook and Twitter. They frequent the downtown area usually once a week so it's always a treat to see that they are in my area. Any other good food trucks that I should know about?? I hope to see more downtown during the lunch hour.

Also, as you see in the picture above, I discovered Cheerwine at the food truck. It is cherry coke made from sugar cane. Yum! I usually don't eat this heavy for lunch by the way:)

The flowers around my house are also making me happy. I love all the bright happy colors. 

                                       First bloom of the year! Glad I haven't killed it yet!

Anyone ever read Domino magazine?? I used to love it and was so sad when it was discontinued a couple of years ago. Well, I was in line at Walgreens and there it was! Turns out they are publishing special editions - this one is for Spring/Summer 2012. It has some great decorating ideas! Note to self when I someday have a decent sized closet - wallpaper the inside for a fun, pretty ambiance. I especially loved the wallpaper they featured below.


Finally, Memphis in May kicks off this weekend!! If you are a Memphian, you know that this is one of the most fun months of the year. If you don't live here, Memphis in May features a different country every year. This year it is the Philippines. Every weekend in May, there is a different event on the riverfront park overlooking the Mississippi River. Music Fest is held on the first weekend, followed by Bar-B-Que Fest (which is especially fun since my husband competes on a team) and Sunset Symphony. It almost never fails to pour down rain at some point which inevitably turns the riverfront area into a mud pit! However, this weekend looks pretty dry and I'm hoping to see one of my favorite bands tomorrow night.
