This and That

FRIENDS! Happy Friday! I know I say this every Friday... but the weeks have just keep FLYING BY! So fast. And so is the school year! Has it really already been 4 weeks since it began!?

I would just like to start off by saying... you know those days when you have SO much to say that you end up not saying anything at all? My recent MIA on the blog has been because of this. This week has been PACKED full of adventures and projects and new ideas and applications and new recipes (AHEM...lots of cookie baking). I've been so worried that I'd forget to blog about something, that I just didn't blog at all. It doesn't make sense. But that's how it worked out. Problem fixed now- weekly update time!

The week started off with a visit to see Oprah...

Yes. THE Oprah.

as in Oprah Winfrey...

at the Life You Want Tour in Atlanta. Her stories were so inspiring as she described how she found purpose in her life. She detailed how to find purpose in your own life and how to hold on to what you believe. It was absolutely incredible.

Afterwards, we stayed at my roommate's house in Alpharetta where we ate at many delicious places including Mittie's Cafe Tea Room:

and we shared these delicious sandwiches between ourselves...

(turkey bacon avocado wrap^^) 

(grilled salmon sandwich with pasta salad^^)

and of course, they had a variety of southern desserts:

I wanted to eat them ALL. 

Another fun place we visited, which has quickly made its way to the "MY FAVORITE EATS" list, was BURGERFI. Y'all, this restaurant is fantastic. In every way. Let's start with their all-natural beef burgers, shall we? Mhhhmmm...

 and finish with m&m and Red Velvet FROZEN CONCRETES. 

Yep, you could flip these babies upsidedown and they still remained perfectly flawless in the cup!

Until we ate them. 
of course.

I want to go back! BurgerFi, if you are listening out there, PLEASE COME TO ATHENS, GEORGIA! We need you during study breaks and burger cravings and frozen-concretes-before-dinner-just-for-the-heck-of-it nights!

It's been a very busy week, but all the fun has balanced the crazy out and I have loved all the moments spent with friends and family and delicious treats too! 

Hope your Friday is fantastic!
