Atlanta: Chicken, Waffles, Thrifting & Strip Clubs...OH MY!



This first picture should speak for itself. 
This is pretty much what went on the whole weekend.
That's what we do.



Juanette and I both wanted to meet any and everyone who wanted to meet us, so we made it simple. 
Saturday.
Chicken and Waffles.
Thrift shopping.
Alot more may or may not have happened:)


That's my cousin. He took me in while in Atlanta. 
He has great teeth. French is his first language. 
Has a good job and enjoys going to "sexy breakfast" spots.

LA LYNN came by to stay hi...and she came with goodie bags for both of us.
She walked up with a wedding gift for me!
AAAAH!!! How sweet is that!
She swung by just to say hi even though she was on her way to feed the homeless!
Thank you LA LYNN!!!




Antonia also dropped by to say hi!
We ended up kidnapping her for the whole day!
No, seriously, she kept saying that she had to go and we kept begging her to hang with us.
And it worked!
She also led us to Highland Bakery where I finally had a belated birthday cupcake.
So for that, I love ANTONIA!



That's Cherie on the far right. She is the owner and genius behind Nappy Rutz Accessories...and she's in Atlanta! She does jewelry parties and pop up shows all over Atlanta!




When Antonia first approached us, I gave her a hug and instantly started smelling her because she smelled so good! Within 30 seconds, Juanette and I were practically digging in Antonia's purse to try on her SMELL GOODS! LOL! I'm sure Antonia was thinking "that's what they do in Texas??"
(It was a body spray by Degree...YES...Degree the deodorant people!)

I was introduced to the UPTOWN! Half lemonade/Half sweet tea!

(I was on the phone with Eboni' in this pic, she was telling me that she couldn't make it. Boo to ATL traffic)

We stopped by the Clothes Warehouse in Little 5 Points but we skidaddled out of there...the prices were ridiculous!






We become really focused when we are thrift shopping. It is not a game!



Clowning around with some college kids in Little 5 Points
(I hope they were college kids)



Off we went to a better thrift store, Value Village on Moreland Avenue.
 (Gap jacket, H&M Dress, Jessica Simpson heels in earlier pics, Jessica Simpson sandals here)

We found our groove in Value Village. The SFAM in us took over and we were showing how thrift finds can work to your advantage. Pushed up sleeves and belts are our strategies of choice!

My cousin hung around for a little bit. I may or may not have forced him. But we may have or may not have allowed him to go to a local strip club while we shopped so he could catch a few football games. 

When he came to pick us up, we got him in on the thrifting action! He walked away with a corduroy jacket with elbow patches!
( Sorry for the camera phone pics)




We had a blast!
We broke into impromptu photo sessions all weekend.

Ok can you find out for me where I can get a jacket and earrings like Jaunette's?
Are you serious about pimping your cousin? I speak a few French phrases, I go to Paris every other year, I have family in atl, will be there next month....!

GFS said...

Ironically I am with her right now. lol. The jacket is from the thrift store and the earrings from www.nappyrutz.com. Ad far as my cousin...I've already be verbally assaulted by him for putting him on blast www.godsfavoriteshoes.com
