The house really has taken up all of our free time and, now that it is finished, we have become reacquainted with an old friend called The Weekend! We have some other dear friends (Mr. & Mrs. St. John wedding from last summer) that live in Atlanta and we finally got to go check out their neck of the woods.
First stop, the original Taco Mac where we maxed out the corner booth.
The weather was terrible with severe storm warnings popping up all over the place. On our way back to their apartment to wait out the storms we ran into The King of Pops...The most delicious Popsicles in Atlanta and for sure my most favorite Popsicle ever!!
Later that night we headed out to Two Urban Licks for dinner. It's a really modern restaurant with open kitchens, a tower of wine in kegs, and snazzy food like you'd see on Top Chef. They also had a live jazz band with the biggest sax player I've ever seen in my life. The energy of this restaurant was just as wonderful as the food!
We had a lazy Sunday morning and after our coffee we headed to check out the workplace of Mrs St. John. She warned us that this was the most over stimulating office that she'd ever worked in, but we were not fully prepared for what was in store for us. Once we stepped off the elevator we strolled into a world of unexpected colors and funky patterns.
...and mirrored ceilings!
Ladies (cue the heavenly music) we were in the land of....
The reception area alone was over the top! Spanx in lights and rose colored windows! What more could their be...?!?!?
Then we saw the boardroom...full of light bulbs! Everyone around this funky red table is sure to have a bright idea!
Their offices had fabulous chandeliers and comfy furniture.
Conference rooms have inspirational quotes on the walls. I mean, who wouldn't want to have a meeting in here?
Oh, and need to make a conference call? Just pull up a chair in the Zen room!
Bamboo walls, fluffy white carpet, lounge chairs and this scene on the wall makes this the most relaxing conference call room I've ever seen. (sorry about the glare from the flash on the wall)
Welcome to Florida!
Not sure what they do here, but it's pretty festive. I'd like to sit in here and pretend to be Dorothy from The Golden Girls.
Everything is soo girly!!! I love it! Poor guys that work here...they've got to be good sports!
The quote in the associate kitchen cracked me up!!!
|Enjoy what you eat...SPANX is your best friend!|
Oh, and in case you were wondering...Their accounting department still looks like all other accounting departments (Full of boxes and paper. Yawners!). They just added a chandelier.
Their file room is way more interesting than the one in my office!
What other office has a closet full of unmentionables? :)
We also got to check out their sewing room.
They've got everything they need right there! Wonder if they're ever like, "Hmmm....think I'll whip up a pair of Skinny Britches and take them down to a meeting."
Then we played in the samples box! This office is like Santa's Workshop!
Our senses were so overloaded that we had to make a conference call in order to ground and center ourselves!
I guess we'd been in there a really long time because we started getting texts from the boys that said: We like SPANX but we're hungry! So we collected our fellas and headed for lunch....followed by a little shoe shopping. The perfect ending to such a day as this, huh?!?!)
