munch out on your lunch out: White Oak Kitchen & Cocktails

oh, yes, y’all. late lunch this afternoon, due to random west coast calls. work is slow at the moment and i just couldn’t bear to go grab something and eat at my desk. late is actually the perfect time to go to a lot of restaurants and get awesome service and an awesome experience. White…

weekend scenes

woo-hoo! we survived, y’all. this was the single busiest weekend we’ve endured enjoyed since i don’t know when! i’m currently relishing a Sunday night moment of calm before it all starts again. before we finally leave for France on Friday night, Spy and i will see our beloved Hartsfield-Jackson just about more than we will…

munch out on your lunch out: Bellwoods Social House

this is a quick one. but so well worth a mention! i was out running errands on the Westside earlier this week. having dropped off all the dry cleaning, i looked around and wondered what i should do until my 2:00 meeting. Optimist? raw bar & martinis seemed extravagant by myself. i wasn’t exactly in the mood…

wine Wednesday: patio weather!

not tryin’ to brag, y’all. but . . . according to one source i just saw, Atlanta hit 77° today. yep. that’s right. this time last week, we were tracking school closings and bracing for another snowpocalypse. welcome to winter weather in the South. i even decided i could pull out white jeans today —…

lucky Friday the 13th

i know. a lot of you out there are wary of this supposedly unlucky day and all the terrible things that might happen. trust me, i’m not immune to a little superstition, either. but on this Friday the 13th, i’m actually feeling especially lucky. so i wanted to jot down a few of the reasons…

Friday favorites

yay! it’s a big Friday around here: Miss Girl makes her acting debut this afternoon in a video we’re shooting for a client (free talent is good talent on this budget). i can’t wait to see how she does pretending to make popcorn and watch a movie with her fake family. speaking of fake families, i…

Friday Favorites

anyone else having trouble remembering what day it is? omg. i’m on day 3 of a 5 day break from work and am pretty much in a complete days daze. it’s freaking fantastic. so when i realized on the way home from the vet (fluids for Mr. P) that today is Friday, i thought what…

munch out on your lunch out: 5 Seasons

ermagahh, this was so kind of weird. i mean. or not. so, 5 Seasons is  totally Westside. and i’m so embarrassed i haven’t been. until earlier this week! and it was a project end/work kind of lunch in fact, that drug me in. i’m terrible. i know. Spy had had a happy hour or something…

NaBloPoMo day 29: Small Business Saturday haul

while i hate every single thing about yesterday’s shopping shenannigans with the white-hot intensity of 1,000 suns, my feelings about today’s shopping cause is equally as strong in the opposite direction. running a small business — especially retail — is hard. and i love to do anything i can to support those businesses owners whenever…

NaBloPoMo day 15: Atlanta Olive Oil Company

at the end of a lazy Saturday morning of sleeping in (at least for me — yay!), grabbing breakfast out and meandering around Westside Provisions for far too long for a day when i had a hefty to do list, we made one last unplanned stop on the way home. we’d seen the “Coming Soon”…
