mandala's and morelli's

what a wonderful weekend! on saturday, we cleaned house (which is never fun, but necessary) and picked up some new flowers to plant in our yard. j is more of the green thumb in our family so while he planted, i handled some other errands (again, not fun, but necessary)! we grabbed a late lunch of falafel vegetarian wraps at med grill and then headed to the michael c. carlos museum at emory. it had been so long since i'd been that i forgot how incredible their permanent collections are! they had an amazing gallery of central and south american art with a strong focus on peru and costa rica - it was so inspiring and captivating! their egyptian exhibit with the mummies and tombs were so interesting. i can't wait to go back and spend more time there.
on sunday, we woke up early to take a long family walk in the neighborhood to enjoy the weather. then we headed to grant park for shayda and lockett's engagement party! they did an incredible job! the venue, decorations, and food were insane! they had persian food, sandwiches from highland bakery, tons of desserts, and they even had morelli's ice cream! i had to splurge and get the salted caramel ice cream! so worth it.

afterwards, we headed to dinner with j's family to celebrate his grandparents' birthdays! we're really lucky to still have 3 grandparents on my husband's side. i'm very thankful for these times (even if we have to eat bland salads, because outback steakhouse isn't vegetarian-friendly).

we ended our weekend by watching "boardwalk empire" season 2. it's so good and even by episode 3, some the scenes have me on the edge of my seat!
