Instagram Round Up

from left to right, top to bottom

Happy Tuesday! What a gloomy few days it has been here in Atlanta. I am so ready for back to back days of sunshine! Anyone else with me?! It's been a few months since I last did an Instagram Round Up, so I figured i'd update y'all on what i've been up to. I hope you enjoy!

Gracie & In The Park: This past weekend, my sister came in town and we did all the Atlanta activities. We started the morning off at the Freedom Parkway Farmers Market (which I highly recommend BTW) and then walked to Krog Street to grab some lunch. It was so nice out, we grabbed some food from Recess and spent the day at the Old Fourth Ward Skatepark with Gracie. I got the Spring Candy salad and it was delicious. I would suggest adding a protein though, I got pretty hungry fast!

Succulent w/ Food: Also while Anna was in town, we tried out SAMA for breakfast Friday morning. I got the Power Up bowl and Anna got the Beauty & The Beet bowl. They were both so good and a great way to start the day! We also got dirty chai latte's, which are our all time favorite. If you are trying to eat clean and haven't been to SAMA yet, you need to add it to the top of your list! 

Ice Cream Cone: I few weeks back, I went to Jeni's one night after dinner. They had come out with a new flavor: Salted Honey Pie and I had to try it. It was pretty good, but I couldn't stray from a few of my favorites: Cookies and Cream and Cream Puff. My other go-to's are Brown Butter Almond Brittle, Salted Peanut Butter w/ Chocolate Flecks and Brambleberry Crisp. It also helps when your boyfriend likes some of your favorites and you can steal a bite of his!

Anna & I: This was from Easter Sunday. Anna had come home from college and we went to Buckhead Church and then had brunch at Mediterranea down near Grant Park. It was SO good! I was also loving the location and vibes. It's not really made know, but their menu is completely gluten free other than the alcohol. I try to eat gluten free about 90% of the time, because it makes me feel so much better. This is another spot that needs to go to the top of your list ASAP. Their patio is perfect for nice days!

Pancake & Toast w/ Egg: My boyfriend's birthday was in March and we celebrated with a relaxing Saturday. We started it off with free yoga at Lululemon in Ponce, which was great! I wish they offered free classes all the time, but it was only a special promo for March. We then went to brunch at Bread & Butterfly. This place had been on my must try list since it opened and I was so happy he wanted to try it! I got the soft scrambled eggs & cold smoked trout and he got the pancakes. Mine was heavy, but good and the pancakes were super fluffy. I didn't even eat all mine, because I knew I would be stuffed. Next, we headed for massages at Treat Your Feet. I had never been here before, but I booked a couples massage because the pricing was fairly decent. Long story short, they gave us the completely wrong massage and ended up giving us a credit to come back for the correct one. When we went back, it was an amazing experience!

Atlanta Passbook & Cocktail: For the month of March, we had our DiningOut Atlanta Ambassador mixer at Taverna Plaka. I had never been, but had driven by it many times on my way home from work. It was a blast! They really went all out for us and provided a great experience and great food. If you are looking for authentic Greek food, look no further. Don't forget, you can use your Passbook to get BOGO entrees! Use code NOP18 to get your's for only $39 + free shipping. 

Me Holding A Cocktail: A perk of having a boyfriend in sales is getting to tag along on business trips. In March, we got to go to Asheville for almost two full days and it was a blast. We got up there early and stopped at a few breweries (Wicked Weed, Catawba and Burial) and had lunch at Buxton Hall Barbecue. It was some of the best BBQ i've had! The decor was very open and trendy as well. We then ended the day at Top Of The Monk with cocktails and a great view. We had a blast and I can't wait to go back!

Me & Frames: Bank of America offers free entry to the High Museum for all card holders on the first full weekend of each month. We spent the afternoon browsing around and soaking in all the cool pieces on display!

Food From Recess: Do you see the trend here? I kinda like Recess. This was another weekend spent walking the Beltline and trying out Recess for the first time. I got the avocado toast and it was amazing! The toast is perfectly crisp and has a hint of garlic, which makes it 100x better.
