The most fun day exploring the Marietta Square with my little sidekick! We started the morning at the cutest walk-up coffee shop where Teagan had a peach slushie and chocolate croissant and I had an Americano and avocado toast. After breakfast we headed to the Square where she threw coins in the fountain and played in the pretend ticket booth and mini train. We did some shopping at @doodlebugz_marietta and Lizards and Lollipopz followed by lunch at @mariettapizzacompany and the best cupcakes ever from one of our favorites, @miss_mamies. Teagan loved running around in the Square and waving at trains in the distance. The Square has grown so much over the past few years. It’s always had boutiques, antiques, yoga studios and great dining spots but now there is even more! Weekends come alive with farmers markets, artisan markets, festivals and Sept. 1-3 is Art in the Park which is such a fun art festival! My kids love the Chalk Spot in the Children’s Art Alley. If you haven’t been to the Square lately, go make a day of it. So much charm and a great little day trip!
The most beautiful rainbow and sunset over Forsyth this weekend! Zoom in on first pic for the rainbow and Sawnee Mountain!
Waiting on their kiddie tapas at @nidocafevickery! It may be hot out, but it feels amazing out on the shaded perch of Nido! Tomorrow evening there will be live music out on the front patio which makes the perfect date night or Girls Night Out. Great way to celebrate surviving the first week of back to school!
We have been stopping by @springfreetrampoline at @collectionforsyth for the past couple years to let the kids get out energy and jump for free and we are now purchasing our own! They have a great promo going on with 3 accessory pack add-on options plus they offer 9 month financing with 0 percent APR! The trampolines come in lots of sizes, they include a 10 year warranty, are the safest trampolines on the market and there are so many fun accessories like a gaming system and basketball hoop. This Thursday, you can find them at the FoCo Expo at the Forsyth Conference Center from 4-8 p.m. offering free jumps for the community! Tell them 52 Forsyth sent you and leave with a cute prize!
My son is gluten free and really wanted some GF Greatest Showman themed cookies for his birthday party. Jill with @nibblecookieco played around with recipes and perfected this one that is perfect with people with gluten sensitivities!! (Could always have cross contamination, but recipe is made without gluten ingredients!) @nibblecookieco makes all of my kids’ birthdays extra special with gorgeous and affordable custom made cookies that have them smiling ear to ear. She is the best!!
Took the kids skating yesterday for their last summer adventure before starting school! I felt like I had stepped back into the ‘90s which is the last time I had been roller skating. We had the best time and although the beginning was rough, the kids felt much more comfortable after a couple laps around the rink. We started out using Skate Mates which are like walkers on wheels that help the beginner skaters. They are $5 an hour to rent and totally worth it. See my IG stories for more from our visit!
We are so excited for our new adventure in North Forsyth later this month and can’t wait to be a few minutes away from Sawnee Mountain! But one of the things we will miss most about our move is living down the road from @vickeryvillageshops. I think I’m going to have to start cooking a lot more. 😂 We come to Vickery Village to eat at @happybelly_kitchen, @village_italian, @cinco_mexican_cantina or @nidocafevickery all the time. And of course each stop ends with running in the green and getting ice cream at @chillhill_vickery. The kids love playing games inside Phase Shop and @happybelly_kitchen. For those of you who live in North Forsyth, tell me your favorite local spots up that way! Yoga studios? Date nights? I can’t wait to find some new places to share with y’all!
