the end of summer

Wednesday, September 4, 2013

Since work slowed down, last week was time for me to kick start my social life (ha!). But really, I was able to participate in PPSC last Tuesday for the first time in a couple months and it was so fun to hang out with some of my favorite ladies! This month, Jillian hosted us at Madewell, where she works, and we had a fun little dress up party. 

A new company, Peach Dish, is launching and sent me one of their packages last week to try out. The package was mailed directly to my house, and included a recipe for a dinner for two along with all of the ingredients. No menu planning on my end? My kind of cooking!

Mediterranean chicken, bread and asparagus - it was all very yummy!

Kelly, Vann and I had been trying to plan a rendezvous for quite some time, and decided there was no better way to kick off Labor Day weekend than to be together! To make matters 10x better, it was DRAGONCON in Atlanta last weekend. None of us had ever been to this nerd fest, but my boss wrote this blog and insisted we go down there and people watch. Oh my gosh - talk about a new tradition! 

My boos! Harry and Lloyd

The Dude!

Sharknado - one of the most creative costumes we saw.

After people watching/drinking rum buckets at the Hyatt for awhile, we headed over to Trader Vic's for Mai Tais and then settled in at Metro Cafe Diner. I don't spend much any time in Downtown Atlanta, so I honestly felt like I was in a completely new city. The Diner also doubles as a karaoke bar... Ever seen Belle from Beauty in the Beast do Gangnam Style? I did! DragonCon karaoke is so much better than regular karaoke.

After that amazing night, I didn't think Labor Day Weekend could get much better. Well, of course we had some other fun plans for the last weekend of summer. I redeemed a gift card at Renew Day Spa for a facial on Saturday morning... and that is about all I did on Saturday. Party time!

However, Sunday was a different story. A group of us decided to go to the Braves vs. Marlins game - despite the reports for lots of rain. When we pulled up to the tailgate, it was pouring rain. After a drink or two in the car, it slowed to a drizzle and we all braved the "storm" to enjoy the fresh air. 

Adam was being a sourpuss about pictures (shocker!), and would only smile when I wasn't looking. Isn't he funny?

Sunday also marked September 1 - the beginning of Hunger Action Month! I celebrated by using my handy dandy No Kid Hungry thermos.

While tailgating, we decided we were all going to cookout together on Monday. Of course, the only people who actually showed up were Madi, Evan and my parents. Nice little triple date! Haha. The only picture I took during our little cookout was of the AMAZING S'mores Bars I made. Holy cow, they were yummy and super easy to make.

And that is how we wrapped up our Labor Day Weekend! Another busy one in the books, but enjoyed every minute.
