Easter Brunch in Buckhead

Happy belated Easter, everyone! I don’t know what the hell I’m going to do with all this candy. Good lord.

Steph's Easter Basket

My husband The Easter Bunny may have gone a bit overboard.

As a non-practicing Unitarian, I really only celebrate Easter commercially, but that doesn’t mean I can’t enjoy it! I spent my weekend running, shopping and brunching, and it was fabulous. On Saturday, after I somehow managed to run five miles without dying, my friend Mary Alice and I hit up the North Georgia Premium Outlets. The main goal was to visit the Nike outlet, but I had a sub-goal of finding some grown-up clothes that would make me feel more appropriate in big meetings at work. I found plenty of pieces that fit the bill at the J. Crew Factory outlet. What a dangerous place.

I tried out one of my new outfits for brunch Sunday at one of our favorite local spots, BrickTop’s. (If you live in the Atlanta area and haven’t tried their chicken and waffles, you are MISSING OUT.)

Gingham and pencil skirts aren’t usually part of my everyday attire, but I think I Steph-ed it up with some spiked jewelry and gold sequins.

Please pardon the goofy face I’m making. I was really embarrassed to be taking a photo on my front stoop where all the neighbors could see, but Brad refused to let me put our ugly backyard on the internet. SIGH.

Anywho, brunch was delicious. Brad and I both usually get the chicken and waffles, but since it was Easter, we went with Eggs Benedict. Had to get our ham fix!

What’d you all do for Easter? Want some of my candy? (Seriously, please help me eat it.)

  • LOVE Bricktops…and your outfit! Happy Easter 🙂

    • Hooray for another BrickTops fan! I feel like it doesn’t get the appreciation it deserves!

    LOVE the outfit — that skirt! Obsessed!

    And congrats on your 5 miler!! You’re so so so close!!

    • THANK YOU! I hope to go much, much further some day, but five miles felt like a big deal!

  • Shelby @ Sweetness in Starlight

    Love that outfit – especially the skirt. Also, if you need someone to take the candy off your hands I’d be more than happy to. Easter candy is my favorite.

    • You know what’s sad?! It’s almost gone.

  • What an awesome Easter basket! Great job “Easter bunny”. Have not tried Bricktops Chick & Waffles yet. Need to 🙂

    • Yes, you HAVE to!

    I never used to know what I was going to do with all the chocolate that headed in my direction at Easter either. You could be sure that six months down the line the eggs would be growning mould in a cupboard somewhere. Apart from the Mini Eggs. The Mini Eggs were always devoured in record time. So now, it’s an Easter tradition that my Mum trades me Mini Eggs for any other Easter chocolate I’m given. She swears up and down that it tastes different, can’t say that I’ve ever noticed.

    And then there’s always the yearly attempt at making Hot Cross buns. Or, more accurately, the yearly failure. We actually made something that tasted nice this year, being the proud new owners of a mixer with a dough hook, but it wasn’t actually Hot Cross buns. It was Hot Cross bun dough that got turned into a Chinese Round because we got fed-up halfway through.

    Next year’ll be the year. 🙂
