We had a nice time last night at 31 Bisto with friends and family from Knoxville. A street singer was busking on the Square and we asked him to entertain us for a moment… hilarious. I’m quite certain he doesn’t even remember the encounter today. Hilarity!
We had just enough time after lunch to make our way back to the hotel and change for dinner. A few miles away was our REAL destination for the trip to Atlanta… Two Urban Licks. The three of us met up with the rest of the family (who were convinced we had arranged all this for some special announcement….sorry for the disappointment guys). Dinner was AWESOME! YUM YUM. If you’re in Atlanta, you have to make it a stop.
After dinner and happy birthdays, our bellies were stuffed and we were off to bar hop a bit. On the list were Joe’s On Juniper, and Blake’s. Even though we were warned by our gay-bashing Muslim cabby to stay away from ‘dim places… “No No No, you don’t want to go there”. We didn’t appreciate that…and the tip showed. I think were were all a little off our game that night. We sat, mostly in a daze people watching. But had fun nevertheless.
Saturday after a great breakfast at J. Christopher, we stopped in the Market (um, I can’t remember the name, but it’s where Alton Brown shops) And picked up a Pork Belly that will go on the grill tomorrow night. We were then on the road to Ktown.
We had a really nice weekend and can’t wait for another trip to Elton John’s American hometown!
Well, I have successfully completed two of my eight clinical rotations! Now, the husband-elect and I are headed to the big city of Atlanta for a weekend of fun. Among the things on our ‘to do’ list is dinner at TWO Urban Licks. This place is quickly becoming one of our fave places to dine anywhere. The atmosphere is cool and the food is phenomenal. I hope to get a small amount of shopping in to while we are there.
My birthday is coming up next week and I will be 32. I always wondered why people say that your 30′s are the best years of your life and now I understand. I feel like I have it all at this point in my life. I have a wonderful man that loves me quirkiness and all PLUS I’m on the road to a career that I feel I am going to love. What more could a girl ask for? I mean, a vacation in Bora Bora would be icing on the cake but I’m perfectly happy with my man and our three little dogs.
Happy March Everyone!
In just over a week Mandee turns 32!! (all indications are that she’s not going to cath up with me) we’re headed to atlanta on Friday for a long weekend celebration as soon as Mandee finishes up a few tests at school. Looking forward to the trip, some relaxation at the Georgian Terrace and some great eats at Two Urban Licks. We need a little getaway and the weather looks like it’ll cooperate. Stay tuned for updates!
Basil and the rest of the canines have been enjoying the spring weather with me this weekend!
Mandee was doing her usual blog surfing a couple weeks ago and found this very interesting post. It is something i would really like to incorporate into our lives because i think it will make our relationship stronger. Now, theres at least one on this list that will not work for me as those that know me well will understand but in general, many of these, i think will be very helpful in making our already strong relationship even stronger. -EM
