dancing goats coffee bar & little man

i have been a starbucks fan for a while now. i love loading my app and getting rewards & i do love the iced caramel macchiato.

until now.

i work in downtown decatur & have been making my way over to the dancing goats coffee shop alot lately. in fact i have been obsessed with their iced caramel latte. i am such a sucker for good coffee & batdorf & bronson coffee roasters have hit the nail on the head with their coffee.

today my sweet husband called me at work, & my first thought was, something has happened… nope. he said, “come outside” i knew immediately what he had done! go outside & there he is sitting in the white rocket (our old van) with my favorite coffee.

made my day.

Image

last night i had the privilege of watching little man (my friends little boy) for a few hours while his parents took care of an obligation. i was so excited. i do not have any kids yet, so any chance to hang out with little ones i will take. we went to the mall for chicken nuggets- went to old navy and he found a few hats he liked.

Image

Image

he decided on the top.

good choice. it fits him well. he also snagged an r2d2 toy that was stuffed with candy. i did not know about the candy, but his mom texted me this morning and told me r2d2 fell and broke his head & candy came out. woo-hoo. extra points for me. we then shared some cookies from that amazing cookie place at the mall that i cannot remember the name of. we also went to the photo booth.

Image

after the mall we headed to target. he helped me pick out a v-neck and some sunglasses.

first of all, let me tell you, this kid loves cars. loves them. we turned down the car aisle and he went nuts. his eyes were huge and he knew exactly what he wanted. a box with 4 cars. i even picked up a bigger car that made noises.. nope he still chose the box with 4. he knows what he wants. i can appreciate that.

also, i had gotten a coffee drink & i sat it beside him in the buggy. i was kneeling down to look at these car shoes that lit up and they were like $6. i stand back up and he was drinking my coffee. sorry jena. im sure it was like a sip. i was like seriously? you like coffee too? me & this kid are bff. anyways, i should have never taken that shoe off to try on the other one. how do you parents do it? they were like slip on shoes & i felt like i was going to break his ankles putting those things back on (not really break them, but you know what i mean). after target we had only a little time before i met his parents, so we headed to the starbucks parking lot. he had been digging his hands into the side of the car box so obviously we needed to play with them. i parked the van- got him out of his car seat and put him up front with me. took all the cars out and we acted like the cars were exploding and wrecking into each other on the dash. i am fantastic with sound effects so he loved it. he kept handing me the cars wanting me to make sounds and would do this cute little laugh & grin every. single. time.

his parents came & picked him up & he was so excited to see them. it was so sweet.

thank you jena for letting me have some time with your little guy. he is the sweetest & cutest.

did i mention she is expecting her 2nd child & tomorrow we have the gender reveal party to see what she is having! super excited.

i will be taking my new lens to hopefully capture some good moments. i will post them to show you guys!

have a good weekend!

Shopping, Food, & Friends- Can it get any better?

such a fun but busy weekend. saturday morning we got up and headed to douglasville for a shopping adventure.

Image

we met up with aj, ashlan and their sweet little bitty tinslee  at starbucks to start the day off just right! i have tried not having coffee everyday & i cannot do it. i just cannot bring myself to rid my body of the caffeine. it is so good. we headed to the mall and i realize i go to the same stores every time i am there- forever21, that weird urban store that sells incense, american eagle, and h&m. h&m was having this crazy sale 1/2 off all the sale items and all sweaters were buy 1 get 1 free. WHAT? i wish i would have taken pictures of the bag bc i probably could have fit into it. we left with 2 sweaters for cory, 2 sweaters for me, an infinity scarf, a black & white striped dress, & a black shirt all for $80. when i got in line i saw they had free magazines too- with a 20% off coupon (off one item) SCORE! after shopping we headed over to the irish bread pub to eat some grub. of course i had to try the fish-n-chips and they were delish.

Image

after our fun date we headed to carrollton for a birthday get together for Russ. a-bomb made some chili and we sat out by the fire just talking about life. russ & a-bomb are such dear friends- russ married cory & i. they also did are premarital counseling- so we go way back.

Image

sunday morning cory led worship & then we headed to eat with our buddy dockery who runs the carrollton menu. he recommended Blue Agave Grill & Tequila Bar & said they had really good food- which they did. they also have pina-coladas served in a pineapple.

Image

Image

i also got to spend some more time with ashlan and tinslee. you guys this little one will make you have baby fever BAD!

of course we had to watch walking dead=== i have no idea what is going on!?

The BEST Philly cheese-steak & clothes

11 more days until the beach. so excited.

went shopping yesterday and bought the coolest jacket for fall, some v necks for Cory & a pair of free people blue jean cut offs (they were only $10). my american eagle order came in (2 pairs of jeans for cory and 1 for me) – i’m expecting my H&M order to come in today and my last american eagle order to come in before friday. whoa. so exciting. last but not least i bought 2 pairs of boots from 6pm yesterday. i think we are set for fall.

on another note. sunday night we had the BEST philly cheese-steak ever. cory came home from church with jared and they were still full from lunch, but i was hungry. so we were going to walk to noodle & it started to rain. got in the white rocket and started driving around looking for somewhere to go and we drive by Woody’s CheeseSteaks. i am sure i shouted “woody’s” bc i have itching to go. bonus is that scoutmob has a 50% coupon right now so cory & i both got one of their famous CheeseSteaks for $9.72. what? yes. amazing. the BEST i have ever had.

we will def. be going. their milkshakes are “on point” as my friend ronda would say.

it’s monday. i know everyone pretty much does not care for monday’s- people like me for instance. i would love to be in bed with the mister getting my zzzzz’s, but i am at work- writing this blog and looking at this website i was told about last night. it is pretty much amazing, and if you like to save money, like me, you will love it.

http://www.hautelook.com – do yourself a favor & go take a look. whether it is for yourself, a head start on christmas gifts, for your husband, for your wife, birthday gifts- they have it and they have it for cheap! the best part is it is really good stuff! good quality!

It’s Thursday

i decided to start a new little thing- every thursday i’m gonna post about things i find while surfing the internet that i really really want/need or things i think my husband would want/need. come on- you know you will see something that inspires you & you say to yourself, “I want this.. no i NEED this”. just this week i have bought the mister a new pair of steve madden boots- which you can find here — i bought him a pair of minnetonkas which you can find here (i like to order the shoes i can find in his size from zappos- free shipping and free returns) & some shirts from H&M which you can find here & here.

last week there was a huge sale going on at american eagle and with our rewards card we always get the best coupons. they sent me a coupon for $15 off and 20% off– wha??? i bought him a new pair of skinny jeans and a tank for me for $12.50 with shipping!!!!one thing you will learn about cory is that he is very particualr with what he will wear. have i mentioned that he never wore shorts until last year? he never wore tanks until last year? we were at the beach for our one year and it was blazing hot, & i said dude– we got to get you some tanks and shorts– so we did. he would not be caught dead in some skinny’s or high top shoes & you can thank yours truly for helping him get over that. he has def. come a long way in the fashion department and i am so happy. i love to push the lines with what i wear & i get told all the time how much people love what i am wearing, or your the only one that could pull that off & i have to be honest. i love it. i’d like to think that i have helped cory step out a little a pick new things & or push the lines a little. he loves skinny jeans- he loves his tank tops- he loves his shorts- hes even wearing minnetonka moccasins, but he is very particular with where he will get some items at. right now it is american eagle for his jeans and shorts- H&M/Target for tanks and v-necks– boots can vary.  last week he bought an amazing pair at clothing warehouse in little 5.

this week i received an email for H&M that you can buy things online now! woo-hoo i love digging for finds but have you ever been to the H&M at atlantic station? it is like a freakin nightmare. they also have really cool home goods online as well. i am in the market for some new sheets and LOVE these. you should go take a look at all of their stuff- you will buy something though, so there is your warning.
