Here's to Lazy Weekends

BF and I had a really great weekend - one of those few where we didn't have anything really on the agenda, yet didn't spend it all at home holed up in front of the TV (been there, done that too many times).

The weather was kind of weird in Atlanta - cold one minute, hot another, rainy, then not, so I opted for some super-casual outfits through the weekend (and no stripes, ha).

And here are some of the highlights that I think back fondly of, as Monday looms eerily:

Lunch at Flip Burger (thanks to Fallon and Jinah for the recs): Really good burgers with probably the world's best shake ever - the Krispy Kreme shake. I would've taken a picture of the shake but my first taste-test sip turned into a full-on chug and I was done with that thing before my meal even showed up. BF and I have vowed to do some serious shake testing to try to replicate the recipe.

Garden-Palooza: I test-drove my green thumb for 2010 (it's really more of an drab olive color) and we started up our little spring garden. I do mean little - I live in a brownstone, so my outdoor space is confined to a back balcony/tiny deck. So I figured I better take a picture right now while everyone's looking nice and prim - and still alive.

Dining In: Sunday involved some home pilates, bouncing around town, light errands and a home-cooked meal. BF's from TN, so he enjoys a hearty Southern meal every - shoot, almost every chance he gets.

Yes, there's only the two of us and we made a whole ham.

Crocs: Yes, we bought Crocs. They're our summer home shoes. BF and I made each other promise to never let the other leave the house with them on.


  1. I like your weekend outfits -- I love the bow-tie sweater! And yep, Georgia weather has been really freaky this weekend, especially the crazy rain and hail.

    Flip Burger sounds awesome -- might have to try that out soon!

  2. Funny about the Crocs! I have some, very comfortable, and I love that they're easy to clean. But they didn't come in my size (I wear a half size), so I bought them too big and they literally fall off my feet when I walk. Oh well. They're good for taking the dogs out on muddy days.

  3. Thanks, Joann. The bow-tie sweater is actually made out sweatshirt material so it is so comfy - I got it on super-sale from Anthro. And YES, you must try Flip Burger, if only for the delectable shake - so good.

    Lady Cardi - They ARE super-comfy. BF and I both had to size down for our pairs, so I guess they run big. If only everyone had a pair of Crocs - the world may be a little less fashionable then (or a lot) but we'd be so much more comfy.

  4. love those biscuits! and i love "nothing to do weekends" i need one of those!

  5. I'm happy you had a good time at Flip. I'm way overdue to try the Krispy Kreme shake because I'm still addicted to the marshmallow.

  6. Hi Lisa! I gave you an award on my blog - check it out here!

  7. your crocs are cute though! btw that's a really cute cardigan in the 2nd photo. oh and we would have made a whole ham too :)

  8. Hillary - I think do nothing weekends are the best! As long as you don't literally do absolutely nothing. :o)

    Fallon - I need to try the marshmallow myself, but ooh that Krispy Kreme shake, mm, mm ...

    Thanks for the shout out and the award, Peggy!

    Thanks, Tippy. I really like the ham but we're going to have ham pretty much for every meal FOREVER ...
