Found this truck on Bedford Ave. in Williamsburg
Finding my place in Brooklyn...
Made a short, but sweet visit to my close friends Christine, Jae, and their new addition Sophie in their new home-Park Slope, Brooklyn. Did I mention that I have a soft spot for Brooklyn? Only hitting a few neighborhoods on this trip, my affinity develops every visit to Brooklyn. With their amazing cafes, food, shopping, access to public transportation, and food markets, Brooklyn really does have it all!
Park Slope is where all the 'yummy mummys' are. Known to be a great place for families, along with some amazing brunch spots that come pretty close to Chicago! Not to mention the $21 pedi/mani's!!!
Another hot spot-Williamsburg is a bit more urban, edgy, similar to the bucktown/wicker park neighborhoods of Chicago. You can find all the action on Metropolitan avenue and Bedford avenue.
Fette Sau in Williamsburg: known for their BBQ where you add your choice of sauce at the table, along with impressive sides, whisky flights, and a great selection of beer that start at 1/4 pints. I enjoyed the long wooden communal tables and benches, but sorry to say, they've got nothing on Chicago BBQ and ribs!
Getting all tangled up with Winston at the park...I think he misses me!
Brunch @ Stone Park Cafe in Park Slope: cod cakes benedict and veggie quiche
Walking around Williamsburg...
Love, love, love the street vendors!!!

The wall with explicit details of meet cuts...and the spread! Slightly burnt baked beans were my fav...Christine and I getting excited to eat!
And a few things I picked up in Brooklyn: cutest yellow watch that was screaming my name @ Otto on 7th Ave in Park Slope and folding Ray Ban wafarers (ok, totally forgot the name of the store I bought these)!!! I've been looking all over for the perfect Ray Bans, and almost pee'd in my pants when I spot these!
I just can't get over how it folds...and fits in this tiny case!!!
Sophie is knocked out from our long walk...and Christine looks too good for just having a baby 2 months ago!!!
