A Weekend in Atlanta!

Thursday, May 30, 2019


While I didn't make any new year's resolutions this year — a first — Brian did — also a first. And, because I am who I am, I've thrown myself entirely into his list and making sure he ticks every item off ;) One of things on the list was to visit our friend Lily in Atlanta, which we checked off last weekend.

We'd both been to Atlanta before but never together. I was worried our 48 hours there wouldn't be enough, and I do wish we had more time, but we packed a lot into two short days...



We had the best breakfast at Buttermilk Kitchen, I don't think those biscuits will ever be topped. I wanted to try chicken and waffles while there, but I'm not typically a big fan. This biscuit was so good, I decided it checked my Southern box for the weekend.





It was so, so hot all weekend, but we didn't want to give up any exploring time. We walked the Beltline for a few hours, walking through beautiful neighborhoods and stopping in stores for some much needed air conditioning. By the time we called it quits, we needed these acai bowls.



We all agreed that the highlight of the weekend was Antico Pizza. Wow, wow, wow. Brian had gone with Lily last time he was in Atlanta, and he swore we had to go (and go multiple times). The ingredients are flown in from Naples (as is the gelato, which was some of the best I've ever had), and none of it disappointed.



We tried to end the night with duck bowling at The Painted Duck, but the wait was long and our bodies too tired. So we played shuffleboard until the pregnant lady begged we go home and sleep :)






The next morning we had brunch at Tiny Lou's, which had the best cinnamon rolls, bathroom and rooftop. Brian's really big on speaking and singing directly to the baby these days, in private and not, and I'm glad Lily captured this. Your mama's not the only weirdo, baby.




We spent the rest of our day walking around Piedmont Park and eating ice cream before our flight. I was trying to get a good view of the skyline all weekend, and it doesn't get better than from the park.

It was such a fun weekend (we also watched this documentary, which B and I are now obsessed with — he bought climbing shoes and a bouldering pass last weekend, and ate here — excellent chocolate chia pudding), and I'm glad we squeezed it in. Our baby-free weekends are starting to feel limited and we've packed them to the brim, but every memory we're making is so sweet and hopefully prepping our little moosh to be a good traveler <3
