weekend review

this was the first weekend it really felt like spring. a lot of time was spent outside, and it made me so excited for fun weekends to come. it was filled with lounging on our porch, long walks around our neighborhood, and daydrinking with friends. now if only a summer break came with the weather…

i was lucky enough to spend st. patrick's day outside with wonderful friends

i had to go into work a little bit this weekend, but at least when i walk around, this is the view

spring has definitely sprung (and so has the pollen)

planted some of my favorite herbs

splurged on some truffles and macaroons at cacao--well worth the price and calories

weekend review

we headed back to the big easy this weekend for a wedding. i didn’t get to take too many pictures, but here is a glimpse into our little get-a-way.

we went straight to bulldogs on magazine when pulled into town

wall street journal called dat dog one of the best hot-dog places in the country-they were right

our hotel for the weekend

it seemed like it was hard for them to let go mardi gras but always looking forward to the next drinking-filled holiday around the corner

delish place we went last time-had to stop on the way out

took a little of mardi gras home with us

west egg-for dinner?

when I saw west egg was on a hand picked scoutmob for dinner- I was a little confessed. I had no idea they were even open for dinner-wow, have we been missing out. for $35 scoutmob put together a pretty great meal: a carafe of wine, an app, 2 entrees, 2 “boozy” milkshakes, and 2 cupcakes to-go.

weekend review

this weekend was filled with fun activities-trying to stay outside as much as possible. i head to florida for work this week, so i hope the weather down there is as lovely as it has been here.

here are a few highlights from the weekend:

antiquing at kudzu


touring red brick brewery


lunch outside at our favorite sandwich place: victory


our yard is still popping up daily with new blooms

happy monday!

weekend review

this was a really low-key weekend, which was much-needed even though these seem to fly by even faster than busy weekends. with the rainy weather with us most of the weekend, we definitely took advantage of being lazy and only getting out to eat some good food (of course).

friday night was so warm, we were able to spend the evening on our porch

saturday morning, i was so excited when i found that we still had my favorite jam from a feed and seed store in covington for an impromptu breakfast

i love all of the visual merchandising at urban outfitters right now

finally branched out from the nut-burger at urban pl8, and i found their vegetarian huevos rancheros to be just as delish

my birthday

yesterday was one of the best birthdays i can remember. not for any one reason in particular, but because my friends and family did little things to make it so special.

**nick made me a breakfast in bed to start it off, and his first attempt at a breakfast burrito was amazing…i forgot to upload the picture!

my mom took me to a fun lunch, and i had one of my favorite sushi rolls

and she gave me to amazing vintage bracelets from one of my favorite vintage stores

i came home from work, and we had prosecco on the porch bc it was 70 degrees-bizarre

sweet cards from family

a cake from one of my favorite bakeries from my sister-in-law

a drink at barcelona wine bar with great friends

 i am so blessed by the people in my life–thanks so much to everyone!

holy taco (a little late)

i might have east atlanta hipsters after me for this one, but here we go…

so i know holy taco is nothing new in atlanta, but i have been trying to get to it since it has opened–which means i had ample amounts of time to build very high expectations of this trendy mexican place: never a good thing.

one word: underwhelmed. love the patio, but the word “love” stops there: drinks, not great; cheese dip, okay; quesadilla, decent–which all added up to a lot of money for mexican food.

but, if you are in east atlanta, i highly recommend the patio to grab a drink (preferably wine or beer as their margs and mojiotos are not worth the $8.50), but my recommendation stops there.

i did appreciate the array of hot sauces at every table…
