Sugar Coma: Somebody Revive Me!

This post is long overdue. Last Saturday I participated in The Broke Socialite Does....Sugar Coma in Atlanta. Myself and a host of other bloggers and sugar enthusiasts had the opportunity to tour some of Atlanta's premiere desert restaurants and facilities. The name of the event says it all. Y'all know I love food, and I ate myself silly from about 9am to 3pm. Oh, did I mention that Cadillac was a sponsor and we got to ride in style all day in the new 2010 SRX. My sister Christie aka the Chatterbox aka 1/2 of the Blogrollers was the driver of our car.

We started the morning off at No Mas Cantina, an authentic Mexican restaurant that just launched it's breakfast menu. The blue corn cakes and their signature coffee, Cafe de Olla were both to die for.
This is the No Mas Cantina store. I felt like a bull in a china shop with my big belly and all of the fragile items that were around. LOL!

Breakfast is served!

Stop 2 was Cacao Atlanta. I learned more about chocolate than I never new before. Did you know the beans are fermented and go through a similar process as wine making? I sure didn't. They gave us a shot of their hot chocolate, and if I didn't wanna slap somebody's mama after that shot....phew! It was goooood! Cacao Atlanta is literally code for Chocolate Heaven.
The are the actual beans that they use to make the chocolate.

Stop 3 was Joli Kobe, a Japanese bakery and cafe. This restaurant by far had my favorite desert of the day. Unfortunately, I have know idea what it was called, but it's that delectable little rectangular chocolate cream cake pictured below on the bottom left of the greedy plate I made for myself at the restaurant.

Stop 4 was to The Cooke Studio, a bakery that does cookies with a cause. Part of their proceeds go to charity.

Stop 5 was Sweet N' Sinful. And boy did I feel like a little devil in there. The owner had the nerve to give me a box and tell me to fill it up with treats! OMG! Somebody stop me! The french toast cupcakes were yummmoooo!
TBS is chatting it up with the owner of the sinfully sweet shop.

Last Stop--Le Fais Do Do, where we had a simply divine lunch catered by Black Tie Barbecue. Can I just say that I had no idea what Bok Choi was, but now it's my favorite vegetable. All of their food is seasoned to perfection. A little birdie told me that they might be catering my baby shower, so I am super duper excited about that.

Oh, and did I mention that we got awesome swag bags filled with pamper products and sweet treats. Also, there was an after party that night sponsored by Yelp. Unfortunately, I was unable to attend because I kind of over did it earlier in the day. You would not believed how swollen and disgusting my feet were by the end of the day.

When I say The Broke Socialite outdid herself this time, I mean it. She is doin the darn thang and takin names. Congrats TBS! I'm so proud of you girl!

Happy New Year!

Okay, so I know I'm like 3 weeks late, but better late than never!

Here is my 6 months picture (notice I am sporting the Macy's Path to Peace O bracelet that my sister gave me for Christmas). I just turned 7 months this week. Unfortunately, I've already gained all of the weight I'm supposed to gain for the whole pregnancy, and I still have 3 months to go. I guess I'm eating too much. I just love food though. Somebody stop me! The nurse literally had to weigh me twice because she thought the scale was wrong or that she had read it incorrectly. Sorry. The scale does not lie (isn't that what the host of Celebrity Fit club always says). Anyway, my second trimester rocked! Now that I'm entering the third trimester, life is getting increasingly difficult. Putting on socks, shoes and underwear, shaving, cleaning, and walking up steps, all seem like Olympic sports these days. And a good comfortable night's rest is a thing of the past. I can't complain too much because I have had a really uneventfully pleasant pregnancy, so thank God for that. I hope you all have had a great start to your new year.
