Last weekend I took my British besties to ATL for a speedy education in culture and my kin folk.
Boy did we twirl. And eat...And drink...
We landed last Thursday and instantly hit the Varsity- the greasy V!
That night mother made a home made Southern dinner
Dad brought out the moonshine. We sat on the dock in the dark and sipped and giggled. Heaven.
Friday was Cracker Barrel then a MOMENTOUS OCCASION- A visit to the Bass Pro Shop! We bought flannels for $10 (bite me Ralph Lauren!), practiced on the shooting range and gazed at the massive fresh water aquarium. Then we took a quick trip to Jacqueland and later a breezy boat ride. I dont think I have ever seen Colin's eyes grow so wide than when he saw dads boat. A floating living room! We polished off a bottle of red on that trip.
Friday night we went to the club for dinner and, inspired by all the boozy club members, decided to carry the party home where mother, Angela, Colin and I all imbibed Stingers until 130am. Zing!
Saturday was a day in town doing the Grandparent circuit seeing Yaiyai for Greek food and Pop & Dot for cocktails then Laura and her girls for dinner.
We ended the night at a loft party with a very festive Genene, Rosalind and Anthony.
Sunday we spent the day with mom and my Aunt Cator in Athens starting off with a big brunch and then a surprise bottle of champagne.
HAPPY ONE YEAR ANNIVERSARY COLIN AND ANGELA!
It was a year ago that day I flew from Russia to Bristol to celebrate their wedding.
After a tour of the campus and town we headed downtown and dropped them off at the apartment they had rented for the night to celebrate and then I headed to the airport.
Sadly we never made it to Chic-Fil-A.
Oh the sadness! They must return!!!!
