Juicy Snack


Another glorious day of babysitting in the ATL. Today was rainy and I was actually cold in the midst of this hot summer. I almost forgot what it feels like to be in another season. Soon though, fall will be here! Summer is moving way too quickly. I start work in one month:/


For the first time in ions, I got myself up and to the gym before 9am. I’ve gotten used to lazy mornings with cereal, so it’s hard to get myself to the gym first thing these days. But I’m glad I went because I had the evening free to relax and took a walk while chatting with a friend. I was in need of a snack around 4, so I checked out the juice bar at the Whole Foods here! I can’t remember what was in this, but I know there was ginger because I loved the strong taste! And it sure filled me up.

I also browsed TJ Maxx for a pair of new running headphones with no luck. I saw some beautiful luggage though and then couldn’t stop thinking about the honeymoon. I think images from movies have definitely stuck with me because when I think honeymoon, I see a flowing sun dress with bright wedges on the cliff of some island or a model in a black bikini with a sun hat. Movie sets make it so easy to picture events we haven’t ever experienced. It must have been weird before they existed. I need to get that picture of the cookie-cutter honeymoon out of my head though – I’m hoping we go someplace romantic (and fingers crossed, European!), but I don’t think I’ll have designer luggage nor an entire resort wear wardrobe from J Crew. Wine, sun, and a few new outfits? Def. Perhaps I’ll even get new wedges and buy a black bathing suite from Target:)

And on that note I’m off to bed. Wednesday is right around the corner.

    I am really jealous of your warm weather. It’s so cold here in Aus at the moment!! And it sounds like you’re making the most of your summer.

    I’m going to St Lucia in November; I’ll let you know what it’s like cause it definitely fits the bill for tropical beaches! Plus has the advantage of being close to the US if you can’t make it over to Europe 🙂

    I would definitely recommend Venice for a romantic break. I went in June with my boyfriend and I spent the whole time feeling like I was on a film set – it is absolutely beautiful. I bought myself lots of pretty sundresses and walked around wearing huge sunglasses – it was so much fun! It was our last holiday together for a while as my boyfriend is moving across the pond to Atlanta soon! I’m trying to decide whether to move over there with him so it’s really interesting finding out about Atlanta through your blog

      We’ve been thinking about Venice! Sounds amazing. You should come check out Atlanta! Its not a glamours city, but has a lot of offer, a great cost of living, and is very family-friendly if that is in your future…

    Name your alarm something like “Get your butt to the gym and make yourself look fabulous!” That’s what I do, and it helps to get me there in the morning. Love the juice bar at Whole Foods! I’m always scared of the intensely green drinks though, guess I’m just afraid they might be too bitter.
