From Zero to Vero | Brookhaven Pizzeria

A few months ago, there was only one place to go on Dresden for a slice. You may not have heard of it. Good. Because now there is a seriously can’t-miss place to go for a Napolean-style pizza pie worth ordering all to yourself. Actually, you’ll probably need two. And afterward, you won’t care about another place … Continue reading

The Monthly Mom List | Raise a Beach Baby

We did it, guys. We successfully vacationed with our infant. And I seriously don’t mean we “went on vacation” but in reality came back needing sleep and another vacation. We really vacationed. Sure, Mac had trouble readjusting to the pack n play (that you’d think he wouldn’t mind since he spent the first four months … Continue reading

Ice Cream is Cool Again | Four Fat Cows

Literally, one of the best parts of Atlanta’s (and metro Atlanta’s) short spring is that we don’t have to wait for the excuse to pig out on some seriously creamy goodness. (Some of you may need a better excuse than just hot weather … that is not me.) And, when you walk into a place that’s got a … Continue reading

The Monthly Mom List | Babies on a Plane

Folks, we made it. Not to summer, not to the six month mark (although, we’ve almost got check marks next to both), but to the great state of Texas and back, on a plane. We even stayed in a hotel. Yep – we’re really livin. The plan included heading across the country with the new addition … Continue reading

Let’s Eat Steak for Lunch | Maya

Usually, we reserved steak dinners out for special occasions or (in my case) extreme pregnancy cravings. So, when the opportunity came up to grub hard on red meat for lunch, it was like a food Christmas. It’s definitely still the case at Maya, a Sandy Springs spot now open for lunch. They’re serving up Filet all day … Continue reading

Movie Monday | Jump Into a Sequel

I loved 21 Jump Street’s remake with Channing and Jonah. Loved it. I laughed, a ton. A ton. The plot was hilarious, the action was nice, the music was ballin’ and the humor was on point (am I supposed to say, On Fleek now?). So, naturally, 22 Jump Street was a must on my list. … Continue reading

The Monthly Mom List | Playing Dress-Up

Its no secret that it takes nine months to grow a baby. But, not many people are spreading the word about the nine months it takes (if not more) for you to grow your body back. We hit the three month mark this past weekend, and celebrated with an overnight trip to the grandparents’ house, a road … Continue reading

Spring Book Review: A chat with our favorite China Doll

When I met author Lisa See, it was when her book, Dreams of Joy, was released. She was in Atlanta amidst a whirlwind book tour and I had just finished her first book, Snow Flower and the Secret Fan, because I had seen that it was coming out on film. After reading that, watching it and … Continue reading

Wednesday’s Word of the Day | Canvas More than Art

This morning (I am writing this post well before you’re reading it), I watched Taylor Swift get her ass kissed on Kelly & Michael. I love the show, but I really can’t get on board with Tay-Tay. That is, until I listened to her explain that her cat, Olivia, was named after Olivia Benson from … Continue reading

Movie Monday | Won’t you be our Neighbors?

I think the reason I liked Neighbors so much was illustrated by the first few scenes in the movie. (and the fact that the main character’s name is Mac!) The call to go out by your not-yet-with-kids friends… The realization that, hey, we can just bring the baby… And then the frenzy of packing and … Continue reading
