Birthday burgers and a fun collaboration



Yesterday was my birthday (thanks to everyone who wished me a happy one!)!


I've been wanting to eat at Chuck's with my husband for awhile now. But since it isn't exactly on the P90X meal plan, we've put it off until he's done with the program. 


But for my birthday, he said I could choose wherever I wanted.


So I chose Chuck's. It's quite possibly the best burger place I've been to. They cook them medium, unless you ask for something else, and have very creative options for the toppings. And the fries? They come with 3 dipping sauces. Yep.

So we headed to Chucks at about 5:45p


The restaurant was slammed. I'm so glad we got a table.         ::crickets::


I went with the Bear in Heaven, without cheese or mayo. Pretty plain, I know, but that's how I like it.


And it was delicious. My husband loved it too. Although, I'm pretty sure he'd be happy with anything besides chicken & rice at this point.

I topped off the night with an old favorite from ColdStone. I feel like I'm about, oh I don't know 8 or 9 years old when I order this. . . but I'm kind of into sprinkles. Excessive amounts of them. 



It was a great birthday. Definitely started year 26 off right.

You've heard me talk about Three Bird Nest before. In fact, you may remember these flower bobby pins that I used in the Knotted Ponytail Tutorial.



She and I have collaborated to create a section of accessories in her shop called "Kate's Favorites". I'm so excited to curate a handful of items that I love! Photographed below are just a few of the initial items that we decided on. Be sure to check out her shop to see the color options too! 
The clips can be clipped in hair, on scarves, on belts, on shoes. . .the list goes on. And I love the hairbands for a jazzed up ponytail without the headache inducing tight elastics. And the last elastic would be cute wrapped into a messy bun!

  7. I don't get those hairbands... maybe I am getting old and out of the loop. What do you do just wrap them around like a regular pontail elastic? Whats with the little knot?

    1. yeah, they're just like regular hair bands but they're not supposed to put a crease in your hair (unless it's wet). they don't fall out but they're also not extremely tight. hope this helps :)

  14. Kate-random question for you. If we've seen some jewelry on your blog before that's from your Etsy store but don't see it in your store anymore, can you still make it or no?

  15. That burger joint looked awesome! We have tons of places like that in Atlanta. I love a homegrown feel and the fry bucket is a great idea! They looked delicious. Hope your birthday was even more wonderful than the sprinkles!

    Love Three Bird Nest! Those clips, bows, and hair ties are so cute.

    Have a great Wednesday!

  32. Kate, have you and Justin tried Zely + Ritz? It is amaaazing!! Everything is fresh, local, and made with one-of-a-kind flair. It's a little more pricy than just an any ol' night of the week dinner, but definitely worth it! You'll love it!!

  33. Sounds like a wonderful birthday! And i am obsessed with sprinkles!! Vanilla icecream with so many sprinkles that every bite is crunchy :)

    ReplyDelete
  34. OK, those fries look awesome. I can't do plain burgers; must have cheese always - sometimes a few different kinds! And if I'm feeling frisky, I add bacon and a fried egg (hey - gotta have your protein). The ice cream looks fantastic - I'm an ice cream kinda girl too. Happy belated!
