Happy Birthday, Kevin!!

Wishing the happiest of birthdays to my wonderful husband – one of our biggest blog supporters over the years, who I love so much for many reasons, the least of which is that he always lets me stand on the left side of every photo…


WHAT A GUY!  Love you, babe!  Enjoy your day!  :)

Warm Beverage Fashion at CB2

This winter weather makes me want to drink warm beverages pretty much all day long.  And when I do, I naturally want to do it in style.  My choice bev is my morning Nespresso out of my trusty lime green Pixie, who I’ve named Julius.  Isn’t Julius handsome?  He thinks you are pretty cute, too.  Julius is such a flirt…


Lately, I’ve been stocking up on cute, modern beverage vehicles at CB2 in Midtown.  They have a super-great stock!  Below are a few of my favorites.


Shelton Press Coffee Maker – $43.95


Vienna Stainless Steel Coffee Pot – $29.95.  So sleek.


DGC Mug – $3.95.  Probably my favorite coffee mug ever – sassy and I love that handle.


Cantina Glass Mug – $3.95


Silicone Grey Espresso Cup – $3.50.  Comes in aqua and neon orange, too.


Double Wall Espresso Cup – $5.95


Rocket Tea Infuser – $6.95.  Really love this guy!


And that is just a taste.  So many adorable items at CB2 to keep your warm beverages stylish, y’all!  :)

Winter at the Ritz-Carlton Lodge!

It’s no secret that I’m totally, completely, head-over-heels in love with the Ritz-Carlton Lodge, Reynolds Plantation.  I gushed about it HERE and again in major detail right HEREAnd since then my affection for it has only grown stronger and stronger…

Kevin and I spent V-Day/Prez Day weekend at the RC Lodge.  It was the first time I’d been there when it was too cold to use the outdoor pool and hot tub, but it certainly didn’t stop us from having an amazing time.  There is SO much to do there even in the winter!

hi! i love you!

Here’s a peek at our chilly weekend…

All aboard the Linger Longer Express!

We walked around the gorgeous property and played a little Horse on the outside basketball court.  (I did not win, but there’s always a next time!  Watch out, babe…)

We took advantage of the swings.

We sipped on wine and watched folks ice skate.  (Drinking + skating was not in the cards for me this trip, but it was really fun to watch other people.)  #totalclutz

We relaxed at the indoor pool and hot tub.

We made friends with Dooley, the resident RC Lodge lab.  Hi buddy!

We whipped up some serious s’mores.

We had a delicious dinner at Linger Longer Steakhouse, which we both agree is home to the best steak in Georgia.  And you can quote me.

We chilled on our balcony overlooking Lake Oconee.

And we didn’t want to leave.  I mean, really, why can’t I just live there?!  It’s only 75 miles from Atlanta – I could commute!  #whowantstogivemeahelicopter

I’m never more relaxed than I am at the RC Lodge.  I highly, highly recommend visiting!  There’s something awesome to do there any time of the year, so don’t let the winter weather deter you.  It’s truly lakeside paradise!
