Five on Friday & a Charleston Giveaway!

Happy Friday!  I hope everyone had a great week.  I think this is the first weekend in forever where we have absolutely nothing planned, and we are going to take full advantage.  Charleston friends, make sure you read all the way to the bottom on this one for a really fun giveaway!

1. Mike and I started booking our summer adventures with our Southwest companion pass.  It's been my lifelong dream to visit every Major League Baseball park for a game, and Mike has gladly taken on this crazy bucket list with me.  Our first ever vacation together, only a couple months into dating, was across the country to San Francisco to see the sites (and Giants!), and since then, we've collected another three parks through our travels and hope to get to four more this summer in Chicago, Milwaukee, and Cleveland.  We have trips planned for each month through September, except June - anyone have a good location that would be perfect for an early summer weekend?
2. In other exciting sports news, the Masters begins on Monday.  I cannot even tell you how much I am praying to the golf gods that the weather forecast changes.  We're supposed to go to a practice round Monday, but right now, it looks like a total downpour.  In case you missed it, we're already getting ready for the Masters with these delicious copycat ice cream sandwiches!

3. I'm on the lookout for some new, delicious spring recipes.  Think: fresh produce, light dinners, and colorful ingredients.  I've been pinning a whole bunch to my recipes board - check it out!
4. Victoria Beckham x Target: ALL THE HEART EYES.  The first time I heard "Spice Up Your Life" in the commercial, my head turned around so fast I almost got whiplash.  I am seriously so excited for this collaboration.  Not only are the women's designs gorgeous, so are all the little girl pieces!  A few of my favorites are: one, two, and three.  I'm taking bets, will this be Lilly for Target 2.0?!

5. Running + food trucks!  Taking place on April 22nd, the first ever Food Truck Rally 5k here in Charleston will bring together more than ten local food trucks, a bloody Mary and mimosa bar (that I cannot wait for!!), a fantastic finisher's medal... and maybe a little running.  The whole event will benefit Lowcountry Food Bank, which distributed 25 million pounds of food, including 6 million pounds of fresh produce, to 200,000 families in 2016.  Their reach is all the way up to Myrtle Beach and down to the Georgia border.  Did you know that one in four children in the Charleston community experience hunger?  Let's work together to alleviate hunger in our area!  Thank you to the Food Truck Rally 5k for gifting me and two of you free registration to the Charleston 5k!  Friends in the area, use the widget below to enter.  One giveaway winner will receive two codes for free registration so that you can a friend can run next month (and enjoy amazing food trucks like Cory's Grilled Cheese, Bac'n Me Crazy, and Pure Fluff Co)!  This giveaway will run until next Friday, 4/7 - good luck!

My dad is on a quest to get to all the Major League Parks too! My sister gave him a similar map to yours one year for Christmas! Yes to Posh Spice!! Can't wait to see what she has to offer at Target. April 9... we're so close!

I love going to see all the MLB parks! My favorite (and I'm incredibly biased because I'm from there) is Cincinnati. I love that you have the views of the river from the park. And yes to VB's line for Target!! <3, Pamela Sequins & Sea Breezes

Keeping fingers crossed for the weather. I have YET to see the weather turn out like they say. Last race, they said it was going to be cold & sunny... I woke up to 57 degree temps & cloudy & windy. TOTALLY opposite from what they said when I went to sleep 8 hours before.

Kate at Green Fashionista said...

The Spice Up Your Life commercials have been getting my attention too, I'm so excited for that line and hope Target is actually prepared for this collaboration. Enjoy every second of your no plans weekend <3

I have to pick just one food truck that I'm looking forward to?! Not even sure that's possible. I had no idea bout this Food Truck 5K but I'm feeling like I'm going to have to make a trip down to the low country in a couple of weeks for it!

Weekends with no plans are sometimes the absolute best! Texas might be fun because you could go before it gets super hot.

Oh gosh, I love food trucks. I'm trying to eat really healthy though so I probably won't be able to enjoy them too much this year. Sigh.

I'm so excited for Victoria's line; I really hope my Target has some cute items!

A food truck 5k sounds so awesome!! I want to visit as many ballparks as possible too. I don't have that many done but I'm going to check another one off in June!

Even though my heart lies with the Cubs, St. Louis has a pretty great stadium. Be perfect in early summer before it gets too warm!

Jen said...

I love that you have a dream to visit every stadium, that is such a fun goal! :)

Nicole said...

My food truck pick would have to be grilled cheese. I love interesting takes on basic foods!

Emily said...

What a fun bucket list and it will be so fun to see all the different field. I've been to Coors Field, Wrigley Field, Tropicana Field and will be catching a game at Fenway Park this summer which I'm super excited about!

Christina Lea Loves said...

So fun you guys are hopefully going to the Master's - hope that rain holds off! Derek has gotten me into it and I'm looking forward to some golf themed snacks next Sunday!

Rachel said...

Running plus food trucks?? Now that sounds like the ideal theme for a race to me!

Depending on your schedule, you could do DC, Baltimore, and Philly in one weekend. I would fly to DC then do the train to the next two and fly home from Philly.
