Butterbeer & baby

I Love Lusie!

I recently visited my brother and sister-in-law in Atlanta to see my new niece, Lusie. Isn’t she the cutest?

I also got to spend some time with one of my best girlfriends, who is working on a doctorate in the city! We had dinner at Six Feet Under in Midtown. But really, it was the view that made it a cool stop.

Of course after dinner we completely geeked out as only best friends can. We made butterbeer cupcakes and frozen butterbeers (thank you, again, Pinterest.)

The cupcakes were a little much. Not only was the cake part super sweet, it had a sweet icing and a ganache filling and drizzle.

They were good, but next time, I’d go without the ganache.

The butterbeers on the other hand were purely delicious.

yummy. Just as I imagined and perfect for butterbeer whip cream mustaches!

UPDATE: We also ate at Flying Biscuit for brunch and it was ah-mazing. How I miss homemade biscuits. I need a good recipe for this. And we stopped by Ippolito’s for dinner and Uncle Julio’s for lunch before I left. Delicious food and sweet tea. Yum.

And then, of course, there was more Lusie!

Look, little Gamecock shoes with spurs! Just in time for football season, too!
