A Movie Date, A Food Truck Festival and a Fight

Monday, July 20, 2015

Monday again? Where in the world is this month disappearing to? This weekend was exactly what I needed, a little relaxing and a lot of fun. Daniel finally got home from the field on Friday night but was asleep within the hour because he was so exhausted from being out there for three days. Saturday we ran some errands early and then spent the day lounging on the couch, catching up on reading, and watching a little Friday Night Lights on Netflix. 

Saturday night was a little bit of a mess, but not of our own doing. Our apartment is located right next to the stairwell of one entrance of the complex. Around two in the morning, I was woken up to the lovely sound of a couple having a huge fight in said stairwell. They were screaming, calling each other names, slamming doors, and everything was echoing throughout my bedroom. Eventually it woke Daniel up too as it only escalated further, and we ended up calling 911, not because of the noise, but just because we were worried that it would eventually escalate to some kind of violence. Around three or so the screaming finally came to an end, and I finally got back to sleep after turning on a documentary about 1920's prohibition. Thank you PBS. I can only assume that some kind of alcohol was involved but I can never imagine a fight getting so out of control. 

Sunday morning both of us were exhausted because of being woken up the night before, but we had tickets for the noon showing of the Minion movie and we were so excited! It ended up being so good and I can't wait to own it, I'll probably watch it a few dozen more times.

Right after the movie we headed over to a local park where they were having a food truck festival. It was packed even though it was a 100 degree day. My body is so not used to temperatures that go above 80 and involve humidity so I immediately melted into the floor. Just kidding, kind of. I did complain a little a lot about the heat, but then was distracted by the amazing food that we ordered. 

First we started out with a baguette food truck. They had all kinds of fresh baguettes filled with different types of sausages and sauces. We went for the hot Italian sausage with basil tomato vinaigrette. It was delicious although I could have probably eaten the entire baguette without anything in it at all. After that we thought about waiting for some ice cream but decided instead on hitting the dessert truck which had peach cobbler. We added a little ice cream on that and my heart and stomach were so happy. Daniel also ordered some pad thai, and then we decided to head back home because it was only getting hotter.

I spent the rest of the night catching up on some homework, I'll be all finished with my Summer classes within the next week, and thats something to be thankful for. 

What did you do this weekend? 


  1. Ugh so sorry you had to deal with that nonsense with neighbors, that is one of the downsides of apartment living for sure.

  2. The crust was fine, the slice was hot and fresh, the sauce was not bad. Food Truck Wedding In Los Angeles
