So, this week some of the Glam Squad gals took a road trip to Atlanta. First off, I have to say, it ROCKED. We left Monday at 4:00 am, planning on getting there around lunch time. The trip was hilarious of course, we were tired, silly and loud. We took over every gas station and food establishment we stopped at (chik-fil-a a few times, naturally).
We arrived at our hotel and it was so nice! We went to our rooms, changed, freshened up from the ride. We started walking on Peachtree towards downtown looking for someone good to grub. There were too many options so we googled the top places to eat and settled on Sweet Georgias Juke Joint.
Sweet Georgias was this amazing southern food style restaurant that sold legal moonshine in every flavor you can think of. Our lunch consisted of Shrimp and Grits, wings, Chicken and Waffles, Chicken Strips, macaroni, beans, french fries, chocolate cake and Spiced Apple Bread Pudding. After we ate, we walked around and rode the train to some malls to shop. All in all, day one was a huge success!
Back at the hotel, we took over the pool until it closed!
The girls made of synchronized swim dances in the pool… I kid you not.
We stayed up late laughing and talking and headed off to bed. The next day was a big day!
The point of our trip was to visit Monte and Lori at the bridal store so that’s where we headed on Tuesday. We arrive at this beautiful, three story building and can barely contain our excitement at seeing our friend Monte’ again.
When we entered the store, we were greeted by Monte’ and Lori with hugs and kisses and lots of talking. We spent a little time talking in the lobby and then headed to the media room and then Lori’s office.
After leaving the office, Monte’ took us to the shoe room and made the mistake of insisting we try on all of the shoes! We spent quite a long time in there as he had each of us sashay about in gorgeous heels! Needless to say, we walked away with 10 pairs of shoes.
Afterwards, we headed around to the bridesmaid section where we tried on tons of dresses before heading upstairs to the bridal gowns. The bridal gowns were so stunning, we were in awe! There was a bride there trying on dresses who kept calling us back to give her our opinion. We helped her pick out her wedding gown!
Monte’ took us into the headpiece/veil room and we all tried pieces on! He gave a quick tutorial on how he does 2 minute updo’s on the show when they want to showcase a hair piece!
We spent a little more time with Monte before he head to head to the airport. We are so excited about our relationship with Monte and are planning with things for the future!
After leaving the shop, we did MORE shopping (can you believe it?) then went home to get ready for dinner. We headed out to this place called Metro Cafe that was known for it’s Karaoke. Of course.. we had to take over the karaoke!
We are a FAMILY. We LOVE eachother. Trips like this strengthen us. This trip was business and pleasure but we used all our down town and driving time to plan and come up with ideas to further our business. We are so excited to see our growth and can’t wait for everyone to see what’s in store!
XOXO, Glam Squad
