{eid celebration on commons}

{fun with frands}

{annual nashville street food awards in centennial park}

judging by my previous post about fall, you should already know that i love a good list.  i'm convinced that if it was socially acceptable, i would literally list every single thing i do on a daily basis on a post-it note.  go to the bathroom? check.  eat breakfast? check.  call my mom-who-is-freaking-out-about-my-sister-not-having-yet-returned-from-cuba-even-though-her-arrival-date-was-yesterday (true story)? check.  the process of physically writing something down makes it much more tangible; the process of physically erasing something from my brain frees it up for more thinking space. type A personality for the win. 

that being said, i added the annual nashville street food awards to my nashville bucket list this weekend, and just as quickly proceeded to cross it off.  held in centennial park with 20+ food trucks, we enjoyed vegan + buffalo chicken wraps from 'wrapper's delight,' and chai tea latte snow cones from 'retro snotruck.'  i love how food trucks are the new cool thing.  FOOD? in a TRUCK? MINDBLOWING.  can't wait to see what new big thang is next.  


.... & more foodie moments on friday night: eid, the arabic word meaning "festivity," is the muslim holiday that marks the end of ramadan.  i came to understand the islamic tradition more this summer as one of my housemates fasted during the last month of our program.  such a cool tradition.  to celebrate, we ate bread the size of our face and questionably shaped meat kabobs. mmmmmm.
