Initially I was intimidated by it, but once I worked up the courage (read: after two cocktails), I went ahead and ordered it + as soon as it hit my lips I realized that it is actually my BFF! My soulmate! The one who holds my heart! My lobster! The wind beneath my wings!
This drink is the best drink EVER. Ford’s gin, Cynar, muddled arugula (so that makes it a health drink #science), and black pepper. It lives at St. Cecilia. Go on and try it now!

I mean, just LOOK at them.
Divine. Divine. Divine!
And what’s better than going to Sprinkles inside Lenox Mall? Well, visiting their 24 hour ATM, of course! All cupcakes. All the time, y’all. Just look how excited my adorable niece was for her first visit!
Man, I wish I’d invented this…
After visiting The American Girl store (which I actually enjoyed way more than I anticipated), my niece had her heart set on trying a Sprinkles cupcake. But I couldn’t let her stop at JUST a cupcake, so she listened to her aunt and went for the whole shebang…
Strawberry cupcake with strawberry icing and red velvet ice cream. That’s my girl! Maybe not the most complimentary flavors, but at least they are in the same color family? Whatever the case, she LOVED it and couldn’t stop talking about how cool Sprinkles was and how badly they need to open one in Jacksonville.
If you have a case of the blahs – go to Sprinkles. If you are having dinner anywhere in Buckhead – skip dessert and get in line for the cupcake ATM. Whatever it is that brings you there, I highly recommend the red velvet ice cream (pictured below). I daydream about it.
Happiness is a Sprinkles cupcake, and everyone knows that happy girls are the prettiest girls. So eat up!

Here are the deets:
Did y’all know that chips and queso are totally calorie free on Cinco de Mayo? In fact, they burn up all your fat when you eat them. (It’s science.) So you can chow down on as much as you want of THIS:
And go to town on some of these bad boys:
Trust me, I KNOW. I’m totally into this sort of stuff. Heck, I hired a mariachi band to crash the end of our wedding…
Bottoms up to one of the greatest holidays on the calendar!
See you at Tin Lizzy’s!

So sorry for the MIA. All kinds of things have been going on. For me, in particular – it’s mostly this:
Here she is on a recent date with Henry Young. We’re obviously encouraging this relationship. Anyway – this blog is all about our favorite places and things. But to be honest with you, right now? My favorite thing is THIS: YOU GUYS. How did no one tell me about Talenti Gelato? I stumbled upon it in the frozen section of Publix a month or two ago and waxed poetic on my twitter feed…only to find out that most of you already knew about this amazingness and were keeping it to yourselves. Friendly reminder: when you know about amazing things, you can always hit me up at @LaurenKCohen or Lindsay at @LindsayWhat44. This stuff is DELICIOUS. Plus it’s made with hormone-free dairy, minimal ingredients, the containers are BPA-free (making this the perfect paranoid pregnant lady dessert) AND the production plant is based right here in ATL! My current obsession: So… there you have it. Please start checking back with us again. We promise you more gems like this on the regular again. Now, if you’ll excuse me, I have pint to visit while I surf RH Baby and Child. xx, L
