DINNER LAB Birmingham

So, if you HAD to pick one thing BIRMINGHAM is known for, what would you say?  Anyone?  Bueller?  Maybe it’s being a pregnant foodie, but I would have to say FOOD!  Having traveled all over the country, I have to say that BIRMINGHAM has a pretty legit food scene.  It can compete with most big cities and truly boasts a uniqueness that nowhere else can emulate.  From Frank Stitt to Chris Hastings, Birmingham is fortunate to be the home of so many legendary chefs.  SO, what is the latest FOODIE trend to hit Birmingham?  DINNER LAB.

How To LOVE Your Pregnancy: FOOD + FITNESS

This post goes out to all my fellow preggos and future preggos.  Now that I am officially entering the 3rd trimester…WOWZERS…I wanted to provide you with my new series: HOW TO Love Your Pregnancy.  This 5-part series will include healthy eating tips and exercise tidbits, MUST HAVE products to keep you comfortable, answers to my most frequently asked questions, Pregnancy Style 101, AND a survival guide for each trimester!  Keeping things as normal as possible was top priority for me.  And as I look back, pregnancy has been a LOT of fun and something I have truly enjoyed.  Trust me, I was one of those that completely…

HALLER.

How amazing does that dish look?  Those are Buckwheat Blinis with Gravlax, Creme Fraiche, Caviar and Dill.  Are you hungry yet?   Several weeks ago, the hubs and I hosted a vertical wine dinner at our house that focused on Chateau Beaucastel wines from the Southern Rhone region.  We were so happy to host this wonderful event that supported local Alabama charities and The Tum Tum Tree Foundation.  The food+the company+the wine…the event was spectacular!

ATL.

ATL: The food…the shopping…the scene. I love it all. As y’all know, the hubs and I took a little shopaholic’s foodie trip to Atlanta after Christmas. 10 lbs later, I am happy to say the trip was a success.

He woke up bright and early on December 26th [while I slept in, of course], hit up 2 stores, and saved hundreds of dollars. It really was amazing. Once he finished his spree, he picked me up at the hotel,…

Love at First Sight

MUSIC Sophia Urista; Matt O’Ree Band • RESTAURANT Bonito St. Barth I fell madly in love with St. Barth the first day we arrived. The culture, the fashion, the glamour, and the food: perfection. I was already trying to convince the hubster to stay 1 extra day. He sort of laughed it off…UNTIL our third night. The food at Bonito was out of this world. The view was beautiful and the ambiance hip. We sat next to a beautiful French family…hell every person on this island is beautiful. It was so entertaining to hear them chat about gold chains, dollar signs, and her…
