Standing in Line at the Trendy Spot


I hope you've had a fabulous weekend so far! I feel like this is the first weekend we've had here in Atlanta that was sunny and somewhat warm. I'm so looking forward to Spring and Spring fashion that will accompany it. :)

Earlier this week, I was posting to the weekly weeks linkup that The Nectar Collective has and ran across Muriel who has a blog called Pies & Travel.  (I've found that I really like her blog, so you should check it out by clicking here) She's in Atlanta just like me and mentioned going to The Shake Shack and had a picture of a glorious meal! I was like, 'Hmm.. Shake Shack you say? Where is such a place??' Of course I Googled.

If you've been reading my blog for a good length of time now then you know I'm all about trying new food places! Since The Boo and I were out and about anyway, we figured why not give it a shot? So we drive to downtown Atlanta and happily find a spot in the parking garage that has a sign that says, 'Welcome to blah blah parking garage. We are happy to tell you that we're giving you a complimentary 30 mins free to park in our swell garage." I may have taken some creative liberties in writing that, but hey! you get the gist...

So I'm all ready to nom nom on a delicious grass fed burger and cheesy fries when (cue the horror music) there is a line...  Not just any line.. A big line that goes down the street. Said line is also in the shade with no sun to speak of and I have no protection against the hawk (i.e the high winds).  Soooooooo, no yummy trendy goodness for me. It's a good thing we had that gifted 30 mins from the parking garage, right?

I swear it took about 30 mins to just get out of the parking garage, but we did escape for free. :) All was not lost though, for I finally got a tripod for my awesome sauce camera and we did end up trying a restaurant we hadn't been to before. More on that in another blog post!

What did you do with yourself this weekend? Tell me about the exciting and mundane activities you got yourself into. :)



  1. Bummer about the burger and fries. I wouldn't have wanted to wait in a line like that either, though.

    Lucky you for the tripod! I can't wait for the day when I'm able to get myself a nice DSLR cam and a tripod, and all the other fun stuff to play with!!! A girl can dream. And some day it will happen. Till then, I'll have to wait for your post about your fun photog toys. =0)

    1. Ikr, I'm so excited! I had to read the manual to see how to work the timer on the camera, but it was pretty simple. AND I just found out that I can download a remote from my phone.. I <3 technology! lol. Hopefully you'll get one in the near future and when you do I look forward to seeing the pix. :)

  2. Bummer about the burger! But congrats on the tripod! Always exciting to get new stuff!

    1. Thanks! I'll get my burger one of these days.. I'll just have to be the 1st on in line apparently. :) It is exciting to get new stuff! I've already been playing with it and trying out different things. Hope you have a great day!
