SuthinGirl in the City: Springtime in Atlanta

March 25, 2016


Happy Spring, Atlanta!

No, your eyes don’t deceive you…SuthinGirl definitely has a little hop in her step as spring has literally burst into Atlanta! There are soooo many ways to celebrate the start of this glorious season in our city, and I’ve got your hook up for next week’s don’t-miss events.

How fabulous are my red buds?! This is my favorite time of year for them!

Driving underneath canopies of dogwoods, red buds and Japanese tulip trees, surrounded by banks of bright azaleas, invigorated by the fresh growth of boxwoods and the buds of new hydrangeas, I’m as close to heaven as I can get without being near saltwater.

Have you ever noticed how you tend to bump into people you haven’t seen in ages this time of year? Everyone is coming out of winter hibernation and it’s like, oh hey, yeahhh…I remember you!

I won’t lie, I’m enjoying every drop of the abundant hours of sunshine and spending as much time as I can on patios around town drinking rosé with girlfriends in our sunnies and sundresses. When I’m not busy running my car through the car wash to rinse off all that golden pollen, that is. Thank heavens for the Unlimited Car Wash Club at Mister Hotshine Car Wash on Piedmont Road! (15 minutes in and out, suuuper nice folks and they do a phenomenal job!)

Sandpiper has everrrrything. SuthinGirl is loving these softer colors and textures for spring.

Speaking of sundresses, a delightful (and highly successful) afternoon of spring shopping with Judy, Kyle and Mendy at Sandpiper boutique in Vinings inspired me to spend all of yesterday changing over my closet from winter to spring. It took forevs but I ended up with two big bags for Goodwill and ahhhh you should see it now. Bliss!

Sounds & Sips for Spring

I hope you’ll enjoy my Early Spring Spotify mix as you toodle around town or sip from your glass of Peeps®-infused vodka. No, seriously! You knew someone was bound to come up with this, right?! Recipe below; you’re welcome. *wink

Happy Spring, y’all!

Peeps®-Infused Vodka

Peep Martini


  • 10 yellow marshmallow chicks (such as Peeps®)
  • 1 (750 milliliter) bottle vodka (SuthinGirl prefers Tito’s)


  • Put marshmallow chicks in a glass jar or bottle and top with vodka. Cover jar. Allow marshmallows to sit until colored coating is dissolved into the vodka and marshmallows are mostly dissolved, 2 days for medium sweetness or 3 days if you prefer sweeter.
  • Strain marshmallow pieces out of vodka. Pour vodka back into the bottle or another airtight container. ENJOY!

To those who celebrate…

Happy Easter Calligraphy
