another week and another collection of awesome things i’ve encountered over the course of it. enjoy and TGIF!
absolutely loving these sweet throwback dresses and more! not only does Shabby Apple have super cute vintage-inspired clothing, they are seriously committed to beautifying and empowering women. two reasons to feel good that i placed an order!
a box of cocktails
truth be told, i was going to do a post about last minute Mothers’ Day gifts. as i was doing my research, i came across Julibox.com. order, and you receive a box loaded with fixins for 2 delicious mixologist-created cocktails, recipes included. you can even subscribe and get a package every month. definitely a gift this mom (and probably a lot of other folks) would like to receive!
a cult beer joint
i’m almost embarrassed to say that after 7 years in Atlanta, i only this week made my first visit to Brick Store Pub in Decatur. they frequently rotate a carefully chosen array of 17 draught and 75 bottled beers downstairs. upstairs, you’ll find 8 rotating draughts and over 120 Belgian/Belgian-style bottled beers. and because i’m that boring (and hey, i had to cut out early to get Miss Girl), i stuck with my standard Sweetwater IPA. but at least now i can count myself among the initiated!

one step closer to August
i’ve never gotten excited about draft time before, but this year i’m hooked. not that i have any idea what’s going on, but i do know this means we are just that much closer to the season starting. first pick, Jake Matthews is lookin’ good! (photo: CBSSports.com)
i’m totally not cool enough to be going, but this weekend’s Shaky Knees Festival is sort of all the rage around here right now. i’m even hearing lots of mentions on SiriusXM Alt Nation. in it’s second year, it’s moving to a bigger/better venue and has an awesome lineup of indie acts scheduled. might just take a drive through Atlantic Station with my windows down to catch an earful!
