Mama’s Boy

First stop on the bucket list….Mama’s Boy!

Who in Athens hasn’t heard of or been to Mama’s boy. It is the go to place for breakfast in Athens. During the weekdays it is possible to get in but if you want to eat there on Saturday or mamas-boySunday┬ámorning, plan to wait at least an hour for a table. There is limited seating but a lot of charm and character in this small restaurant.

My friends have always raved about it but I had always been weary of waiting for over an hour for a table. My friends finally convinced me to go and boy, was it worth it!!! My experience was great. We went on a Monday morning so there wasn’t near as long of a wait, they actually seated us quite quickly. I ordered the veggie scrambler and it was so yummy, I ate the whole thing.

A few pro tips if you’re planning on making a trip to Mama’s Boy soon:

  • Go during the weekday
  • Go earlier if you can (the later in the morning the more crowded it gets with hungover college kids!)
  • Parking is limited…very limited. Be prepared to circle the lot a few times in order to find a spot. (If you’re within walking distance, I highly recommend walking there)
  • make sure to order a biscuit!! They are to die for (Also, the chocolate milk is unbelievable)

Hopefully these few tips can make your next trip to Mama’s Boy as enjoyable as possible!



Athens, I Love You

This is the post excerpt.

I never knew just how much I loved the city of Athens, GA, until I was just months away from leaving it. Senior year began and graduation still felt so far away but yet here I am, already January, wondering where the time went.

My friends and I recently discussed all of the things we love about Athens, the things we will most remember when we were gone. That is when it dawned on us… We had to do everything we either loved to do in Athens or do the things we had always wished we had done. It all started with a giant piece of paper hung in our living room with the words “Athens Bucket List” written across it. We all then took our sharpies and started writing all around it the things we held so dear to us and the things we have always wanted to do.

When thinking about what to write on this blog throughout this semester (my last semester of college), I believe there is no more perfect of a topic than Athens, I Love You. This is a place that has believed in me, shaped me and showed me there is nothing better than standing in between 2 hedges on a Saturday.

Each week I will check off one thing on our Athens Bucket List and write about my experiences here.

This blog is dedicated to the place that will always have a piece of my heart.
