Shake It Up

Spring forward… how great was it that there was still daylight at 7:30 tonight? And how not so great was it that it was pitch black this morning?! Anyone?

I’m watching the 20/20 special on The Bachelor right now. Apparently, if something says “Bachelor,” then I watch it…

Yesterday, my dad & brother stopped in town on their way home from Augusta. I have been raving about Flip Burger and was convinced that they would love it, so we made our way over for a Krispy Kreme milkshake. I vowed to try a new one every time I go, otherwise I would have sprung for the nutella milkshake that I love.

Which one would you order?

The milkshake lady split the Krispy Kreme milkshake into two glasses for us…

One for me, and one for the boys. 😉 It was a glass of creamy, glazed vanilla goodness. They seriously put Krispy Kreme donuts in the concoction and blend away. Delicious, but the nutella shake is still in the lead… what can I say, I love chocolate!

They had already eaten lunch, but they couldn’t resist getting a late afternoon snack!

I think it’s safe to say that they’ll be back. Oh, and we confirmed that they are opening one in Buckhead. I don’t know if it’s a good or bad thing to have delicious milkshakes within an arm’s length!

Lulu spent the weekend in Augusta with the boys, so she was on guard patrol while we were in the restaurant. She watched us walk in and didn’t move from her spot… it was hilarious! How fierce does she look?

So, Christie wrote a great post about goal-setting today. I normally have “loose” goals in mind, but I don’t beat myself up if I don’t stick to them. But, for this week, I want to shake things up. I wrote down my goals and made a plan for them, instead of just winging it and/or hoping for the best.

My goals for this week:

  • Go to hot yoga once
  • Try one new recipe
  • Study for 1-2 hours each day
  • Turn the computer/tv off by 10:00 pm (in order to get 8 hours of sleep)

So, here’s my plan:

Mon: yoga

Tues: pilates; book club

Wed: yoga; new recipe

Thurs: happy hour with friends

Fri: hot yoga

*I’ll study over lunch and after work each day.

Are you a goal-oriented person or do you just go with the flow? Do you have a current goal or two that you don’t mind sharing?

I Flip for Nutella

Making you wait to hear about THE Nutella milkshake is cruel and unusual punishment. Unless, of course, you’re like my one boss and you don’t like Nutella. Well, that’s just weird. 🙂

We finally went to Flip Burger Boutique last weekend for lunch. We stopped in before on a Thursday night, but the line was out the door so we didn’t stay.

Well, we went around 2:00 on Saturday, and sure enough, there was a 25 minute wait. I love sitting at the bar anywhere we go, so I just stood near the bar and snagged two seats within 5 minutes.

TWO SEATS directly in front of the milkshake station. Yes, this woman really did make milkshake after milkshake after milkshake. 😉

I loved the restaurant’s decor- it was modern, but simple. Do you see the mirrors on the wall? They were so cool… the one to the right was actually a TV, so we watched part of the Olympics while we were there.

I read about the milkshakes somewhere before, so I already knew that I was going to order a Nutella + burnt marshmallow shake. They had probably 6-8 milkshakes on the menu; Krispy Kreme also looked really good.

I DIE.

Eating the marshmallows made me feel like I was sitting at a campfire!

I ordered the turkey burger, which had avocado, tomato, sprouts and pomegranate ketchup on it. It was bursting with flavor. At first, I thought the burger was on the small side, but it ended up being the perfect size. The homeade pomegranate ketchup was so creative and really tasty.

Chomp!

On the side, I had a simple yet delicious beet and goat cheese salad. Tobey ordered zucchini fries, but I didn’t end up tasting them.

I loved this place- the price point was right (my burger was $6.50, the salad was $4, and the milkshake was $6) and we couldn’t stop gushing about the whole concept. You could easily go in there, each order a burger, share a side or two, share a milkshake, and both be PERFECTLY content.

As you can see, there was nothing that I didn’t like about this restaurant. Luckily, it’s out of the way for me or I’d be stopping in often for a shake! 🙂

What do you look for in a restaurant? Atmosphere, quality, price or some combination of things?
