A town-Down.

And we're back! Birthday weekend, was a blast!!! It went so well, and we all scored such great new things! I've said it a million times, but i really do have such great friends! I am so excited and blessed to have a good group of girl friends, i don't want to ever take it for granted.
We woke up super early Saturday am and headed to Atlanta, ( a 4 hour drive) Our first stop was a large antique mall right outside of Atl. that is open only one weekend a month, and just happened to be open this weekend! It was fun to walk around and get inspired. I only took home a pretty vintage book, but they had such reasonably priced furniture and large pieces that i would definitely go back with a Uhaul someday!
After antiquing, we hit up the h&m and the mall. Shopping spree began. We literally shopped til we dropped, before we knew it, it was after 9 and we hadn't even checked into our hotel! Once we did, we all freshened up, had a photo op and then got a ride to our restaurant..
We ate at Pure(taqueria) and i found my new favorite margarita spot.
really glad to know they just opened one of these outside of charlotte! We stayed til they closed, it was so fun! Once we got back to the hotel, there was a "pool side party" happening on the 16th floor, and because we were living it up in the city this weekend, we said "why not?" It happened to be a latino party, but that was the best part! after a few dances we ended the night.

Sunday morning we headed to Ria's Bluebird for Brunch, this was fun side of town, it was a gem of a restaurant and their latte was amazing. After brunch we walked around little 5 points, and Highland areas of town. Lots of fun vintage shops, and boutiques. It was the most beautiful day, the weather was PERFECT!

All in all this trip was awesome, I'm already scheming my next trip. I believe the next one will include more sand and sun!!! Next weekend im going to DC to see Luke, cant wait!!
Hope your weekend + monday treated you right.
have a great week!!
