Shake Shack Atlanta

15 December 2014 Buckhead, Atlanta, GA, USA

I mentioned in a few posts back how excited I was about Shake Shack coming to Atlanta. When I was in NYC a few years ago, I didn't know it existed, so I missed out on giving it a try. Since then, Shake Shack has popped up in various other states, but only on the East Coast (take that, In-N-Out), including the good ol' sunshine state right below me. I've traveled for food before, but a trip to Florida just for a burger spot was not in the books, so I sat waiting patiently and hopelessly...

THE WAIT IS FREAKING OVER.

They'll Hook It Up

12 December 2014


This week I cleaned my apartment, tried an at-home waxing kit (which was a semi-success), got creeped out by an Elf on a Shelf, found the perfect red lip color for my skin tone and got myself hooked on the Hazelnut Iced Coffee from Chick-fil-a. The flavor's not on the menu, but if you ask for it, they'll hook it up.

Things I can appreciate about life

22 November 2014

Last year around this time, I wrote a post on gratitude, and how I felt it was important to express it year-round. Well, a whole year has gone by, and here I am around the Thanksgiving holiday looking back at how often I really took the time to appreciate the people and things in my life. Appreciation is a funny thing. You can feel it, deep inside, sitting all warm and fuzzy within your body, but that doesn't necessarily mean you're showing it and/or expressing it openly. At least, such is the case for me. I'm working on that. The YouVersion app has a good reading plan on Thankfulness, and it's a quick read. When I fall behind, it's easy to catch up.

We were on CP Time for the pumpkin patch. (About a week late)
Gotsta do better.


North Georgia Mountains

This past week has been a rough one for me. These photos are from a last weekend's trip to North Georgia Mountains. My quiet before the storm.

Running a 5K

10 November 2014


I ran my first official 5K this weekend! It was the Luminate 5K, so it happened at night. It happened, though. The proof was in my next-day soreness. I did manage to capture the shots above, as the sun was setting.

Goodies

I may be a little late to the party on the Pocket app, but now that I'm here, I'm hooked! Saving a webpage to the app is as easy as pressing one, little button, and I've got a queue of goodies stored for a rainy day. From now on, Friday will likely be that rainy day around here. Otherwise, I'll keep saving sites and never getting back to them.

Art

05 November 2014


I've had this sitting in my drafts titled as "Art" for a couple weeks now, and it's interesting I couldn't find a better title since I was impressed by the displays at such a small museum.


Located in the Marietta Square (I really like that place), the Marietta/Cobb Museum of Art showcases a mix of modern and contemporary art, mostly oil-on-canvas paintings.

What I probably love most about visual art is that it does not always require much commentary (if any at all). The work speaks for itself.

Downtown Woodstock

03 November 2014


This past Saturdays was one of those days where nothing really goes as planned, but everything still turns out to be okay, and that's the best way I know how to describe it.

I remind myself of my womanhood

31 October 2014


Setarra and I are friends in real life in my head (there are a few of you out there, btw, and you may not even know it), and she recently tagged me in her 'Girl Behind the Blog' post. Now it's my turn.

*Rubs hands together*

ChalkFest

14 October 2014


I don't even know where to begin with the commentary for this post. You creative types out there speak to my soul in some beautiful ways. I appreciate that, and I appreciated this past weekend's Chalkfest in the Marietta Square. When I first heard it on the radio, it just sounded like an event for the kids to come and draw and play around on the sidewalks. I was wrong. I was VERY wrong.
