…I had a nice weekend. It was dreary, rainy + cold, but it had its perks.
I saw Ryan Bingham for a sold out show at The Loft on Friday + he definitely fell into the “even better in concert” drop box for live performances. Smoking + drinking on stage didn’t affect his perfectly raspy voice in the least, in fact it made it even richer.
The new Anthropologie was a warm + welcomed escape from the cold on Saturday. If you haven’t been to the Howell Mill location yet, you need to check it out. The store is just great + there’s something that I can’t quite put my finger on about the dressing rooms that makes me want to try on the entire store.
Slick + I chowed down on some “gator bites” at Six Feet Under on Saturday afternoon. Kinda tasted like chicken…don’t be a’feared.
And then we fell in love with this handsome little guy at the Atlanta Humane Society. We aren’t in the market for a furry friend right now, but this pup (Charlie Bucket) stole our hearts. Adopt him!
Feeling brave enough to take on a potential tornado, we warded off cabin fever by spending a few hours at the Georgia World Congress Center for the 2011 Atlanta International Auto Show. This Camaro caught our eye, but the Lotus stole the show in my opinion.
I went with LK + some lovely ladies to see Red Riding Hood on Sunday.
I went in with seriously low expectations + ended up actually pretty pleased with the film. Although that wasn’t the general consensus of the group, I think keeping your expectations low is oftentimes the best way to approach things. Just sayin’…
We drew the weekend to a close at Mellow Mushroom in Sandy Springs for dinner. Couldn’t have imagined a better way to end it. MM truly is “happiness as expressed in pizza…” Will always love my Pizza Sundays!
Slick did some shopping at Richards Variety Store + picked me up a Lite Brite (never had one as a kid) which kept me busy until I hit the hay. (It’s certainly not an iPad 2, but it will do for now…)
It wasn’t the craziest weekend we’ve ever had, but it was super relaxing + now I’m rested for the excitement ahead.
So, bring it.
