Weekending {2/9}

Happy Monday!

Im changing the format of my weekend posts a little bit and just going to give you some highlights for your Monday. Let me know if you like the change :)

Friday: I dragged AR to start looking at Registry goodies and took him to dinner at Bhojanics, one of our favorite Indian places. My meal was so spicy, I drank 3 glasses of water with it. Have your created a registry? How hard is it? I don't even know where to start, honestly.

Saturday: Brunch with girlfriends. Much MUCH needed :)

Saturday: Atlanta Junior League Placement Expo! It was so exciting to learn about all of the things I could volunteer at this year. I cannot wait to share my final placement.

For those who don't know, the Junior League is an awesome organization that trains women for leadership in the community, raises thousands of dollars for local charities, and donates millions of hours throughout the year to local non-profits. Each member must work a minimum of 50 hours are their placement - this might be the zoo, a hospital, an after school program, or food bank. There are so many ways to get involved. You might have some negative stereotypes from movies (ahem, The Help), but that has not been my experience at all. You should check it out!

Much of our work in ATL focuses on wary childhood education. I am hoping to volunteer in a placement with children this year because this topic is so important to me!

Saturday: Long walk on the ATL Beltline. I got home from the expo and AR and I went for a walk. We grabbed smoothies and walked 4 miles though Piedmont Park and around the Beltline. The weather was fantastic - over 60 degrees and sunny.

Blueberries, banana, almond butter, and almond milk. Yumm!

Sunday: So much school work. Can't even talk about it.

Sunday Sunny run through midtown with AR. We got in 6 gorgeous miles in the afternoon and once again, enjoyed that stunning weather. Now its raining, so I guess we paid for it.

Looking forward to: Tastings this week - so much good food to come!

What is your favorite smoothie combo? 
Do you volunteer with a local organization?


Thanks for hosting, BLovedBoston and Champagne&Suburbs!


  1. I've always been interested in joining the Junior league. Growing up though, i thought it was only a southern debutant thing, hah.

    1. You should join! I thought it was a debutant thing too, but it has been such an awesome experience :)

  2. Jealous of spring-like weather! Currently freezing our beans off up here in MI ;)

    1. Oh no!! I cannot take the cold weather. If it makes you feel better, it is suppose to be 14* this weekend :( So much for our Valentine's Day hiking trip!
