Wetumpka

For my birthday this year we were looking for something to do, so we decided to visit Wetumpka to see what HGTV Hometown Takeover had completed while there. We had never been to the area before so we aren’t sure what it looked like before their visit other than what they showed during the shows….

McFly’s Bird Shoppe

We ate lunch in an alley for the first time when we went to McFly’s Bird Shoppe. It is in Birmingham, Alabama in 5 Points South. It was on our list of places to try for awhile but we were not sure if we’d be able to find parking. It only took us one trip…

Farrelly’s

Recently we visited a new restaurant in Hoover. We’ve been in this building before for another restaurant. It was originally built as a bank and still has the vault in the building. Now the restaurant is known as Farrelly’s. We went on a Saturday morning and had to order from the brunch menu. I went…

Barbecue Stop

With Covid-19 it’s been awhile since we tried a new restaurant. But we have tried to get back to finding new restaurants, working thru our list of places that we’ve yet to visit. We have had the Barbecue Stop at Clay on our list for quite some time. We decided on a VERY cold Saturday…

Chocolate!!! (Sky Bear Confections)

I’ve been following Sky Bear Confections on social media that was coming to Trussville that is all things chocolate! I needed a sweet snack while we were in the area and decided to give them a try. They have a display case of all kinds of chocolate truffles and some of the most delicious melt…

Elvira’s Cafe

Do you have a favorite vacation spot? Do you have a favorite restaurant at that vacation spot? When the mountains are calling, we enjoy visiting the Gatlinburg / Pigeon Forge area. One of our recent restaurant finds is Elvira Cafe’s in Wears Valley. I say recent, but we’ve been there 3 or 4 times already….

There is always room for ice cream!!!

We are always keeping an eye out for new places to try. I found out about a place in downtown Springville called Laster Sundries on Main. So one rainy day we decided to ride to Springville to give it a try. It looks like an old fashioned soda fountain. According to their Facebook page the…

SOHO Social

We had heard of SOHO Social and decided to give it a try one day for lunch. Really wish that they had a lunch menu with lunch prices, but they just have one menu so it made for a bit of a pricey lunch. We had been wanting to try the pimento mac and cheese…

College Football Hall of Fame

Before the football season we decided to take a last minute overnight trip to Atlanta to visit the College Football Hall of Fame. We had been talking about it for awhile, and decided that we needed to just go and stop just talking about going. So we decided that we wanted to do an overnight…

Hero’s Part Two

I recently had the pleasure of getting lunch with Julie during the week. We don’t usually go to lunch together during the work week. We had narrowed our choices down to a couple of places we have yet to try or Hero Doughnuts & Buns in Homewood. We had eaten at Hero’s once previously, and…
