A Look At Our Trip To Atlanta and Fun Filled Weekend


Hello Friends!


I am so happy that Fall is here! This means that we can pull out the pumpkins from white to orange to the beautiful tinted blue pumpkins. 

I am not one for pumpkin spice everything which includes all the specialty foods or drinks. Although I am not a fan of those, I sure do love seeing everyone else talk about their fun pumpkin spice finds. 

I am shocked with how many items companies can put a pumpkin spice spin on. There even is pumpkin spice deodorant, how crazy!


I thought it would be fun to share a handful of pictures from our Atlanta Birthday Trip that we just came back from. Dallas turned 23 years old so we made a fun weekend of it! 


We had our "to-do" list set as Dallas is the planner of the bunch. On the top of the list, I was determined to find my latte art! Dallas researched the best places in Atlanta for us to visit. From there, we decided to make a stop at A Thousand Hills Coffee Company. 


Of course, we bought coffee which I will show you below! 

The first thing that catches your eye when you walk in is their homemade pies and other delicious baked goods. I bought a piece of lemon pie for my Eddie. Fun fact about Eddie, he loves lemon everything. So people enjoy pumpkin spice, but my Eddie loves lemon!


Okay, drumroll needed, here is my latte art! I was beyond excited about this Instagram moment. The best part was not only amazing the photos looked but how delicious it was! 


The barista did a beautiful job. I actually love the picture below with my cup and Eddie's cup, that I had a print made to put in my photo scrapbook with my Felicity Jane papers. How sweet is that! 


I have to tell you... I have the most amazing family because they know how much I love sharing on my Youtube channel and Blog. 

They just go along and are so happy as they do. From hunting down coffee shops to being filmed in public, they are always willing to participate. 


After coffee, we went shopping!ZGallery was our first stop. Would you look at how pretty these glasses are?  Yes,  I would love to see them on my table. 



I will have to watch for these zebra vases to go on clearance. They would be perfect next to my jewelry tray in my dressing area Fingers crossed, the small one is still available. 



Here is a funny story for you all! 
We walked by the Louis Vuitton store and Eddie asked me if I wanted to go in and I didn't go. He said that "I must have had a fever." 
Why did I not go in? It means I still have extra money for HomeGoods! 


Next, it was time for lunch. We took my parents to see Bartaco since we seem to go every single time we are in Atlanta. We have now been to all three locations! 


We picked several different types of tacos so everyone could try a little of everything. There was everything from Baja fish, portabello, shrimp to duck!



My Trey man is so handsome! We had so much fun sitting next to each other at lunch!


Later that night, we went to dinner at JCT Kitchen. This was Dallas' choice for her birthday dinner. I must say it was a delicious choice. 


This picture is dark, but it gives you a little idea of the restaurant. 

I love the vibe of the chairs mixed with sofa style benches. There are also long drapes in the center that gives it a romantic feeling. I wish I would have been able to give you a better look but the lighting was very low as it was dinner time. 


Dallas said we had to try the Truffle Parmesan fries. I understand why after tasting them. They were so delicious! 



I loved the Farmhouse Style dishcloth instead of your standard restaurant napkin. It all just came together from the mix of stainless steel tables to the long romantic drapes in the center of the resturant to break up the different sides of the room. 


The birthday girl had steak with a half serving of mac and cheese and garlic green beans. 


My dad had the complete fish which had a fancier name, but you get the idea. I don't know if I could have had a complete fish on my plate, but he enjoyed it. 


I decided to order the fried chicken. Dallas told me that they are known for this meal. It was absolutely delicious. I definitely had leftovers which meant more to enjoy later on! The Mexican street corn was a perfect side. 


Now on to dessert, I was only able to eat about three bites as I was full from the fried chicken dinner. This coconut cream cake was worth every bite. 


Trey had the raspberry sherbert. He really enjoyed it. 


They brought out the most delicious dessert for Dallas that I have ever had. I actually can't wait to go back and order this for myself. It was basicially a giant peanut butter cup similar to a Reeses cup!


We had such a great time throughout the dinner. Dallas did a great job finding a great location for us to celebrate this special day with her. 

This has to be my favorite picture from the weekend. The moment just before she made her special wish as she brought in her 23rd Birthday. I am going to have this picture enlarged and purchase matching frames for us!
