Weekend Update

Hi Friends! Can you believe it's Monday? I mean, seriously. It's crazy how fast the weekends go by. I apologize for the late post. The Husband and I returned from the coast so late last night and there was no time to get a post together before now.

We had an awesome weekend that started Thursday night. Although we both had to work on Thursday and Friday, we started the pre-weekend party by having dinner at one of our fave Mexican joints in Atlanta. We indulged on guac, cheese dip, margaritas and beers for starters followed by tacos. So darn good! The scales weren't too happy about it but hey, it was worth it.

Friday after work, we packed up and headed to the coast. The Husband downloaded some new tunes on his iphone which made the four hour drive so much fun. We had dance party USA all the way to the coast. It was awesome!

Saturday my mom and I hung out by the pool while the boys played in the river. It was nice to have some girl time with my mom. We enjoyed every minute! Oh and you know we sipped on some sangria spritzers! :)

Later that night we went to hear The Tams play at the river front with my mom (dad was too tired to go and was sorely missed!) and some friends but ended up missing the concert due to dinner. However, we did catch the fantastic fireworks display while we were waiting for our table. We love fireworks! Although we were sad to miss The Tams, it worked out perfectly. We didn't have to rush through our delicious seafood dinner (it was delicious by the way!) and enjoyed catching up with some great friends. The Tams actually came to the restaurant we dined at and we met a few of them before we left. Pretty cool!
I wore this awesome bracelet for the occasion...

Sunday we spent the day on the river with my parents. We had the most beautiful weather both Saturday and Sunday. No pop up thunderstorms to contend with. The Husband went kayaking and when he returned, we all took a cruise on the boat. It was so peaceful and Atlanta was just a distant memory. No traffic, no construction noise, no beeping horns, nothing but peacefulness. It was so nice, even if it was only for the weekend. We always procrastinate with it comes to leaving. It's almost like if we put it off, we won't have to go! Sadly, that's not the way it works. We hit the road right at 8pm and watched the sun drift off behind the trees as we started our four hour journey back to the city. I wanted to kill the alarm clock this morning!
