Lake Burton… we have arrived!

Good morning and happy Friday!! woo! Are you guys excited for the long weekend?  I have to admit, I have been on vacation since Wednesday so I just had to ask my husband what day it was… that is when you know that your vacation is going well!  Riley and I just got back from a run and had some breakfast and now we are just hanging out talking to you fine people before we head into town to go to the Farmers Market (love!!!)! 

Let’s back up a little bit to Wednesday afternoon.

We headed to the airport with our favorite little travel buddy.  He loves to fly.

After a quick flight, we arrived in Atlanta and grabbed our rental car before making the 2 hour drive to my in-laws lake house.  My mother-in-law had dinner ready for us when we arrived, which was so nice!  We had a salad, roasted cauliflower, and halibut.  So yummy!


Thursday morning, I headed out for a run with my husband and pup.  They ditched me halfway so I finished up by myself.  So humid here.  


After cooling off and relaxing for a bit, I cooked up some breakfast for my husband and I.  This little guy was hoping for some droppings.

Fresh berries, egg scramble with veggies, and ofcourse, avocado on our festive plates!


After breakfast we spent lots of time outside playing fetch.  Riley is obsessed with water and would swim all day if he could.  Sometimes I have to go in there to get him because he refuses to listen to me.  🙂 

His happy place.  Notice the big stick to the right of him… yep, the LARGE sticks (branches) are his favorite.  


My mother-in-law painted these chairs red for the boathouse.  Aren’t they so pretty? 


Even Riley approves! 


Thursday afternoon was spent relaxing with my sidekick and reading this book.  Have any of you guys read it?  Remember on our trip to the Cayman Islands I told you about the airport book rental… well I actually exchanged the book I got for that trip at the Atlanta airport when we arrived on Wednesday and got 50% back and then purchased this one!  Just love the concept of “read and return.”

Thursday evening we got ready to head into town (about 30 minutes) for dinner.  Kisses for my baby, first! 🙂


We went to one of our favorite restaurants for dinner.  Fortify has a farm to table concept and is always delicious! 

Fresh bread and fried green tomatoes! 

I got the Halibut for my entree and my husband got the Grouper and we both raved about our meals!  

Me and my hubby!


Us and my brother-in-law!


My in-laws are the best!  So cute!!


I am off to the Farmers Market with my mother-in-law before the rest of the family arrives tonight!  Can’t wait!!  Have an amazing day and weekend and I will talk to you all soon! 


  1. Do you have a Farmers Market near you?
  2. Do you have any plans for the long weekend?
  3. What is your favorite summer holiday food?
