Weekend Recap

This weekend, I...

- Built 2 more Billy Bookcases for my living room and now, for the first time, I have more space than books! You know what that means... MORE BOOKS!!



- Had the most amazing brunch at South Congress Cafe with dear L who was in town visiting: crab cakes "benedict", carrot cake french toast (basically just carrot cake), and white wine sangrias infused with delicious watermelon juice




- Got my first "cake shake" at The Holy Cacao (red velvet + vanilla ice cream = pinkish shake). Laura got a frozen hot chocolate (although it wasn't very frozen). Cake was gooooood, but a little too liquid-y for me. Must try another time!





This week is a short one for me as I leave for Vancouver on Thursday. BUT there are some exciting things happening on Hang On Little Tomato this week as well so stay tuned!! Getting pampered on Tuesday with a much-needed pedicure and cut & color. Yay!

Hope y'all had a wonderful, relaxing and divine weekend. :)
