Market Day in Atlanta (Part 1) | 427,000 miles of fun with FancyBelles

Maybe 427,000 miles is a slight exaggeration, but only slight. The Fancy Belles look forward to Market Day twice each year because it allows us to find the best products for our customers. There is so much neat stuff to choose from and we know that you will love what we have for you. We stayed at the Westin Peachtree Plaza Hotel and enjoyed the accommodations very much.

We enjoy the whole experience too and like to bring the fun with us even though we are working. We try to make the most of this time on our own as Southern ladies without our children. Of course, we missed our children terribly, but we made the best of our time anyway.

We ate at the PittyPat’s Porch and it was really amazing. Terrance was our waiter and he adored us. Of course, he did. What’s not to love?! We got fried green tomatoes for free. If that’s not love, I don’t know what is. We both had fried chicken and it was so much that we couldn’t possibly finish it all. We decided we were going to save the rest for breakfast. Yes, I said breakfast. We were on our own and really wanted to live it up … but we missed our children terribly, of course. Anyway, our very good friend Terrance comes back with a to-go box. We said, “You know what would go great with a fried chicken breakfast, Terrance?” And he said, “Hold on. I’ll be right back.” He brought us a whole box of muffins. When you are close like Terrance and the Fancy Belles are, you just know these things about each other. He was our buddy. We went back there again for a free desert.

They also had an amazing salad bar at PittyPat’s Porch. We tried pickled watermelon rinds which we decided were not for us. At JP Atlanta we also gave smoked trout a try and didn’t care for it. This was about moving out of our comfort zone, but those two things will not be coming back into the comfort zone with us. The smoked trout was not our favorite, but the rest of the cheese board at JP Atlanta was great. It’s cheese! What else is there to say? Also, JP Atlanta had the best hamburger. I feel very good recommending this burger to you because I care about you and your happiness.

We went to the Sundial. It was a great restaurant, with great music, and an amazing view. I will say one of the Fancy Belles did not care for the heights. We made it out alive though because we are tough like that.

We walked a lot. I believe it was 427,000 steps. That might be a slight exaggeration, but only slight. Our feet and backs hurt by the time it was all over. The bed was amazing though. We are lucky we woke up at all. How do you know when it is time to get up if there aren’t any children or pets around? We missed them all terribly, of course.

We got lost a lot. Like 427,000 times. Maybe a slight exaggeration, but still. I don’t know exactly how we managed to do it, but we seemed to take a different way every time we went somewhere. We got to use a VIP entrance once. I guess we were important people that once. We got in trouble with security in a parking lot we apparently weren’t supposed to be in. A security guard told us to slow our roll. He clearly did not love us as much as Terrance did which surprises me because what’s not to love?! There was a lot of glistening going on in the Atlanta heat and humidity. The beds were wonderful though. Did we mention the beds?

The whole event from the business to the pleasure was so much fun. There was always a party on the 17th floor. There was a lot to drink, but we did not partake this time. People dressed as Elvis were walking around. We didn’t buy from the 17th floor, but we went for the party. It was an odd place, but fun.

Believe it or not we did find time to shop for you too. We found lots of cool items that we’ll show you in the next post about Market Day! Thanks for joining us for this adventure and I hope you had fun reading about it. We want to bring you along on our journey whenever we can.
