So long Georgia, hello Dessert Babies!


Well, my last day in Augusta, Georgia seemed to get off to a perfectly normal and healthy start.  Keep in mind that “seemed” word as you continue reading.  Anywho, the day started with a perfectly delicious Cranberry Orange muffin from Fresh Market…a nice big pear….and my Iced Coffee obsession.  I am telling you, now that it is getting warm outside, my entire paycheck might as well be transferred directly to Starbucks in order to fund the IV of Iced Coffee that will be inevitably pumped into my body on an hourly basis.  Sad thing is, since it is colder…I can drink it even faster!!!  Do they make these guys in gallon size?!
Nothing like a nice breakfast buzz.
Check out that crystallized sugar goodness atop the muffin.
Considering it had been a good 48 hours since I had worked up a mad sweat sesh, it was high time to thoroughly soak the booty…so we made our way to the local Y….pre-GaGa fierceness.
Did the Elliptical for 20 minutes, and then my own impromptu Spin session.  SWEAT.  FACTORY.  My body thanked me as I grinded it out on the bike.  Amazing how much I miss vigorous exercise when I don’t get it for even two days.  Again…it is a darn good thing that I did sweat like a nervous prom date, because Linner (Lunch/Dinner) and dessert was a down right eating contest.
This place seems all sweet and innocent, right?!?!?
The Boll Weevill has been featured in numerous magazines and TV shows, including butter queen Paula Deen….this should have been my FIRST warning.  We walked in to a dessert case that would put Willy Wonka to SHAME!
Nope, that isn’t a skyscraper…..it’s a CAKE.  Layers upon layers of cake-like goodness.  We were like some crazed zoo tourists as we pressed our faces to the glass and drooled.
Dinner needed to come first.
All I had to see was portabella, and I knew I was sold on this Sammie.  Ordered that, plus the spicey corn chowder.
Check this bad boy out, who needs meat…I ask you?!
The soup was also great and had an amazing heat to it.  Bravo, Weevil!
The time had come.  The dessert menu was upon us.  It was all downhill from here.
For starters, it was Sunday…which meant the desserts were on SALE.
We saw many tables *splitting* one slice of cake between parties of ¾…but noooooo…we had to be special.  We had to be ridiculous.  We had to…..order 3!!!!!!!
This was nothing but a pure and simple:
We barely made a dent, and were all collectively unbuttoning our pants in pure foodgasm MISERY.  Even though we “shared” all 3 pieces, I don’t understand how one human could completely eat one of these desserts.  If you are ever in Augusta, be sure to check this place out!  It is one of those “whole in the wall” type places, that is totally delicious!  By far our favorite meal!
So good, but sooooooo painful.  This is where the disclaimer comes in.
Should you eat like this often?!?!?!  No.  Should you eat like this once in a blue moon??!?!  Abso-freaking-lutely.  I loved every miserable bite, and am currently pregnant with multiple food babies.  I am registered at Babies -R- Us, and I am doing the room in yellow, just in case anyone is interested in picking up a little something for the tikes.
Once the eating had reached its Zenith….we decided it was time for a walk on the river.  We needed to do something, or become instantly paralyzed in sugar-death.
Fun, fun trip.  The weekend flew by…and it is back to the grind tomorrow.
Exciting news…the MYSTERY BOX, all it’s contents, and your chance to win what is inside will be posted tomorrow.  So be sure to check back.  It is a GOOD one guys.  I am so excited!!!

  2. So jealous of all your cake-tastic-ness you’ve been enjoying lately!! I’m almost in a sugar coma just looking at those pieces of cake. Daaaaang son. Those are definitely some hugh jass slices of cake. Can’t wait for the mad sweat sesh tomorrow at cycling! Plus din! Where are we going??

    I dont have internet often, but I wanted to tell you how much I loooooove reading your blog. Such a positive inspiration! We need some tshirts to proudly display our obsession with the blog boy!

  5. Oh boy, those cakes look like my idea of heaven…and hell. Desserts are the devil, and he has my soul.
    I can’t believe you still haven’t reveal the contents of the mystery box yet! You are a bigger tease than Marcia Brady in the Brady Bunch movie.
