More fun in Atlanta

So after hitting that fun strip of shops we headed across the street to Room & Board.


I had never been to a Room & Board before so I was super excited to check out their goods!  It’s mostly larger items (sofas, beds, casegoods, etc) not a lot of tchotchkes. 





Good looking stuff – although it’s a bit expensive.  But a 95% of their items are made in America!  Customer service was excellent as well.  Cindy actually picked up the pillow in the first picture – for her guest room!  A perfect match!

Then we headed to CB2remember I told you that Atlanta was getting a one them a while back. 



Love this acrylic console table – they have end tables and the cocktail table in same style.


Oh and this marble topped cocktail – yes please!!


And that rug is purty too!


Love the simplicity of grey and whited duvet but a super cool pattern!


And how cute is this votive holder!  It’s actually three different pieces that can be used together or separately.

We had a great day of shopping – checking out the stores that aren’t currently in our Queen city.  We also had some yummy eats on Saturday as well.  We stopped at a little hole in the wall for an Asian/Latino fusion – called Hankook Taquieria.  They had all kinds of fresh ingredients with interesting combinations!


And for dinner we headed to:

They have some really yummy food!  We started with the White Bean Soup that had amazing flavor!  I had the 1/2 chicken – described as “almost boneless – duck fat crisped fingerling sweet potatoes, brown butter chicken jus”  YUM!  Cindy tried the Fish of the Moment (cute way to say fish o day) EVOO poached Trout heirloom tomatoes, brown butter local cauliflower, toasted hazelnuts.  She said it was good but not great.  We were somewhat disappointed that they didn’t have any truly healthy options.  I wasn’t trying to stay on the healthy track so I was definitely looking forward to some uber yummy dessert!  Cindy went with another glass of wine for dessert while I surveyed the dessert menu. The options sounded really good – but I settled on the Rum Sopped Coconut Cake.  Think Tres Leche with rum – HELLO!?!?!  What could be better?

We ended this great day with meal and I have to say this was picture perfect day for hanging in the ATL!

We had plans for brunch on Sunday at Local 3 but unfortunately we found out late on Friday that a family member had passed, so we needed to head home first thing on Sunday for Joe and I to get to Statesville for the funeral.  But even though we only had a day + a night it was a great girls weekend getaway!
