Ramblings

Tuesday, August 27, 2013

Well, this is getting painful. At this point, without my camera I wouldn't even be able to tell you what we've been up to. However, my crazy event season is officially over (until the end of October, at least) - so maybe I'll get back in the swing of things. Probably not, though. I haven't done our finances (yes, I keep a very detailed budget spreadsheet) since Italy, and that's been pretty liberating...so I'm thinking I'm not going to go back to that for awhile. Hopefully that's not the same for this bad boy.

Adam and I have been on this "let's do STUFF!" roll since his new job (read: a little more income), and we've been having fun! You're only young once, right?

Since the last update... I've been home and not completely drowning in work, so I was finally able to make a trip to the grocery store (good and bad news - nothing has changed), clean the house (exciting stuff, huh?) and make time to see my mysterious family and friends who may or may not have thought I was abducted by Scientology.

I'm kind of obsessed with Footloose (actually, I'm kind of obsessed with the song Footloose), and the local theater in the Marietta Square, The Strand, was putting on the musical. Adam, being the creative spontaneous kid that he is, decided to take me to see it on Saturday, August 17. We hadn't done much of anything the whole day, so we headed up to the square around 5pm and had a glass of wine at our favorite wine shop before dinner at La Famiglia. The food was meh, as can be expected. There's a new farm-to-table restaurant in the square that we haven't yet tried - but our past eating experiences overall in the Square have been meh. They need some bad ass dining options in there, and it would have so much more potential.

I captioned this picture something like "the arguments that ensue post-photo are epic" - and I didn't really think it through that it sounded pretty bad! Basically, I just meant that we always get in these stupid tiffs (that we're laughing through) because Adam says I take the worst pictures and cut him out.


So then he decided to take one, and I couldn't even keep it together.


Anyway, we saw Footloose and it was so much fun! Unfortunately, the acoustics in that theater are terrible and everyone sounded muffled when they spoke (Charlie Brown teacher style). Lucky for me, I know the plot of the movie, but Adam turned to me during Intermission and said, "So.... what's the story line here?" What a trooper!

Give Me Five, my last event of the season, was the next day, and I was so excited my parents and in-laws were able to attend!


After working lots of days in a row, I got Wednesday and Thursday of last week off. Adam also had Wednesday morning off, so we hiked up Kennesaw Mountain with our number one girl. Just what I needed!


My idea for a relaxing weekend at home was, of course, thrown out the window when we had some opportunities come up.

Conveniently, I was able to participate in my first Summer Hours of the season last Friday (during the summer months, our office closes at 1pm every other Friday. Since it's my event season, I never get to take advantage of it). And extra conveniently, Barbara was coming in town (by BUS) and we were able to grab a boozy lunch at Tin Lizzy's, followed by a beer run and Menchie's.

Needless to say, the owner of Menchie's wasn't exactly thrilled we brought beer in. I believe his exact words were, "Ladies, don't drop that beer on my store floor." Listen, guy - we would have been more mad than you if we wasted this beer on your floor.


We sadly parted ways, and then I headed home to get ready for the Concert in the Square. Such a fun time with some of my most favorite people!


On Saturday, a friend of mine who I know through work invited us to see her husband's band play in the Battle of the Bands at the Masquerade. Their band, Clap for Daylight, didn't win - but it was so fun! We had never been to the Masquerade before, and we felt super hip.



On Sunday the weather was too beautiful to sit inside, so we headed to Downtown Roswell for a late lunch at Party Chic. I wanted to try a new place, and they had an upstairs balcony and bottomless mimosas for $10 - sold! The food was ok, but the service was terrible. Even those $10 bottomless mimosas won't get me back in there. I had pretty cute company, though.


 The weekend ended with Adam meeting up with the guys for their Fantasy Football draft, and me having a wine and pizza night with Dominica. Perfect, relaxing way to end an awesome weekend!
