Random image for the day...

The Silhouette Building, Atlanta

We were in Atlanta over the weekend, which was awesome. We passed this building on Peachtree Street, and Brian snapped a photo with his phone out the car window. Very cool.

Our main destination was a party at Matt & Heather's new house, where they were having a holiday "Open House" to show family and friends the final product of all the hard work they've done this past year, and their house looks great! You can check it out over on their blog Notes from the Nelsens.

But, on our way there, we stopped by CB2, which I love! I've only ever seen their catalogs, so it was so awesome to be able to walk around through all their displays and sit in the chairs and hold the items in your hand! When we walked through the door, they handed Brian and I each a key, and they had a game set up in the middle of the store, where you would 'unlock' a locker an it would reveal on a computer screen if you had won or not... $10 to $100. We each won $10, as did everyone who happened to be doing it around the same time as us, so I just assumed that everyone won! But when I went to redeem the gift card, and this guy approached the desk to get his 'second chance' voucher, and then he came back and asked for the Facebook code. That means he tried three times to unlock his prize and didn't win anything. Poor guy! So with the 2 $10 gift cards and a $5-off coupon, we escaped with a ton of stuff for less than $15!

Here's a sampler of some of the awesome things we bought (all images from You'll notice a Christmas theme, mixed with a candle theme.

numi candleholders (1 of each)

And the creme de la creme... the tree ring holder that goes with our birch tree forest we have in our bedroom!

We had lunch/brunch at Gilbert's in Midtown, and it was delicious! Anyone out there had that experience, where you feel like you are walking through your favorite catalog or magazine? It was quite surreal!

  1. I have never been to that store either (only seen the catalogs, like you), but now I definitely want to go! Thanks so much for the shout out! ;) It was SO fun having you guys here for the Open House! I only wish we got to visit more... but lucky for us, we have the ski trip just days away! :)
