|Check out the goodies I got at SOWA from The Fashion Truck|
This weekend, I headed over to SOWA Open Market in South Boston. If you live anywhere near Boston I suggest you guys go. It only happens on Sunday so plan accordingly. I've been hearing about SOWA on twitter, and I swear to you guys...I fell in love with the place. The place is so lively! In the sunny months, they have vendors with lots of unique items and food trucks set up outside.
Here's how their website describes the event:
"At the SoWa Open Market you’ll find original art of all mediums, gourmet food trucks, indie designer clothing and accessories, ceramics, glass, photography, jewelry, handbags, house wares, baked goods, local farmer’s produce and much more every week!"
As I was walking in the first thing I saw was The Fashion Truck. How perfect! They have cute clothes and accessories...on wheels. I think it would be perfect for a girls night in! If you guys don't live in the Boston area, click here to shop online.
The SOWA Vintage Market is a part of the SOWA Open Market, although the Vintage Market is open year round since it is housed indoors. They have everything from vintage furniture, vintage Louis Vuitton, artwork, and my husband and I even found an old WWII knife. I could have spent hours vintage shopping, but my son was not into being inside at all.
I was arguably most excited about the food trucks. I'm not talking about your run-of-the-mill taco truck. I am talking gourmet. I am talking fresh. I am talking creative. I am talking de-freakin-licious. I have been meaning to try Roxy's Grilled Cheese ever since I saw them on Food Network's "Great Food Truck Race". Everything they made looked tasty on TV, and I'm telling you they did not disappoint me one bit. I think it was the best damn grilled cheese I've ever had.
Those may look like regular french fries to you, but they are no plain jane fry. Trust..they are more than that. The french fries were hand cut, rosemary truffle fries. I die. My husband bought the C.L.B.T. made of provolone, arugula, chicken confit, tomato, house made ranch, and bacon. Seriously. Are you drooling yet? My coconut and I both bought the Green Muenster which obviously had Muenster, applewood smoked bacon, and homemade guacamole. I need to make a homemade version...STAT! The lemonade of the day was blueberry mint, and I regret not getting it. Everyone that bought it looked so happy and refreshed!
|I took this picture from the SOWA Open Market website. There were tons of people there!|
My hubby and I were able to take a quick picture together. I'm always so busy talking pictures of my son (and food) that I need to take more picture of my hubs and I. We used to have photo sessions together all the time, and now one of us is always the cameraman. Thank you iPhone for saving the day.
It's never a complete day without taking silly pictures with my coconut! By the way, I realize I look 12 in this picture. Everyone thinks I'm 18 when they meet me. I'll take it because guess what? I have youthful genes in my family. Emily from The Bachelorette and I are the same age, yet I look way younger. I wish I looked my age, but I know I will appreciate it in ten years.
I am so happy and thankful to be apart of the blogging community. Everyone is so supportive of each other! I want to give a shout out and "thank you" to Emma from Food, Fork & Good for nominating me for the "One Lovely Blog Award". I would love if everyone checked out her blog.

I was also lucky enough to be awarded the "Illuminating Blogger Award" from the lovely Lauren of Girls Gone Food. You guys have to check her out! Her blog is beautiful, and she has some really fun recipes. The award is given to a blog based on its illuminating, informative blog content.
Part of the award is saying something random about yourself. I already told you 11 random things, but I guess you're going to learn 12. I have huge crushes on the leading men of classic Hollywood. I am talking Paul Newman, Robert Redford, Cary Grant, Humphrey Bogart, James Dean, and Frank Sinatra. They were all so dapper and handsome. Swoon.
