From L: Happy Thursday, Glitter Girls! Long time, no post. Sorry, but I’ve been BUSY…busy planning the best baby shower ever, that is!

As you know, J is expecting a precious baby boy in May. Her bridesmaids and I (with a little help from my sweet mother) showered the beautiful mom-to-be with a brunch at Cook Hall in the W Buckhead. Each one of us is so seriously excited to meet this little guy! Here are the deets and a few of our favorite photos:

friday five | food diary.

J:

Mercy mercy mercy. Friday is finally HERE.

I’ve been sifting through recent iPhone photos and realized I’ve been hoarding #foodpics and resto recommendations. For shame. Let’s catch up, shall we?

The Silver Moon | Lake Oconee: L and I had a girls getaway at Lake Oconee a few weeks ago and shared the most delicious fresh shrimp. It was photo-worthy obviously.

*Note: You may have trouble finding this gem of a restaurant because their sign simply says “Bar and Grill” so keep an eye out.

JCT Kitchen & Bar | Atlanta: You probably saw this gorgeous sight on our instagram page, but I had to give more info because it was THAT good. Steak tartare with a side of fried corn on the cobb. {not pictured MOMO sauvignon blanc}

Joey D’s Oak Room | Atlanta: Keeping with the steak theme… Sometimes a great steak is exactly what you’re looking for. Look no further than Joey D’s Oak Room! Conveniently located across from Perimeter Mall with a bar you MUST see to believe.

Gino’s East Pizzeria | Chicago: After dining here on my last two trips to Chicago, I definitely need to share the best deep dish in town. Gino’s East is exactly what they say it is… legendary. Can’t make it to Chicago? Gino’s will ship a pie directly to your door. #dangerous

Smith & Wollensky | Chicago: Exactly what a crab cake should be… crab. To die for. And highly recommend dining al fresco.

Happy Memorial Day! We hope everyone is having a relaxing day and of course doing some online shopping…

It is no secret that we both live for fun paper products. We <3 snail mail.

J was in the market for some fun washi tape to add a little something to her wedding thank you notes and came across the gem that is Carde Blanche.

This adorable online paper shoppe is a dream. Owner, Lori Christensen, is a doll and her instagram is a MUST follow.
