Atlanta for the Weekend!

I am coming off of one fantastic weekend. Dana and I flew out to Atlanta to celebrate the beautiful Katie’s birthday with her! Remember last year when we went out there for my birthday? I thought I would switch it up this time and go out there for hers.

I have an incredible amount of laundry to get to so I’m going to limit the words for ya’ll today (the southerners must have rubbed off on me). Here’s a photo recap from our wonderful weekend with our friends.

Dinner at Muss and Turners: I ordered the Grilled Bison Flank and the collard greens

Hike up Stone Mountain on a rainy and windy day=kinda scary/ super slippery

Going up was simple compared to coming down! Hanging on tight.

Burgers at Flip Burger: I ordered the turkey burger with tomato, avocado, sprouts, provolone cheese, and some awesome ketchup. We all split an order of fries too. Confession: I love crispy fries.

Atlanta Braves baseball game! We had amazing seats and had a blast!

Headed to the Farmer’s Market and Art Festival at Piedmont Park!

Hanging out on their massive covered porch while the rain fell and enjoying their friend’s adorable puppy, Ruby who is an Italian Greyhound. She liked snuggling with me! My heart melts.

Homemade dinner on the last night made by Dana and myself: scallops, spinach salad with fresh organic peaches and almonds, roasted veggies from the farmer’s market (zucchini, eggplant, bell pepper), and quinoa of course. 🙂


I really can’t believe the weekend came and went already. Why does time fly by so fast?! Luke and Kate, thanks for being such great hosts to us once again! Can’t wait to see you again.

What was the highlight of YOUR weekend? A beautiful walk, much-needed couch time, cooking, baking, a ice-cream cone, etc?

  3. You really had a perfect weekend! Stone mountain looks like so much fun and that Italian greyhound is killing me, so cute! My boyfriend is actually obsessed with greyhounds so I know he would fall head over heels for that little one.
    By the way, have I told you that you and your hubby make a beautiful couple? I think I have but I’ll say it again: gorgeous! 🙂
