It's just another manic Monday...or so it feels!
Last weekend was pretty low key, but productive. On Friday, the office was pretty quiet since many people worked from home or left early to avoid the Outkast concert traffic. They were playing 3 nights back-to-back at Centennial Park (each night was sold out). This was my view from my office about 2 hours before the show was set to start.
For lunch, I went with my favorite ladies, Beth and Jenny, to lunch at Dua Vietnamese on Broad Street. Their Bun with spicy lemongrass tofu is amazing! The weather, food, and company made for a great start to the weekend.
On Friday night, we were going to go to dinner and a movie, but we ended up missing the movie (oops). I had read about a new vegetarian restaurant right down the street from our house called Go Vegetarian and it was incredible! They are still in their soft opening so it took a little longer than usual to get our food, but we were told it would be worth the wait and they were right! I wish I had gotten pictures of the food, but I was starving by the time we got it. They make everything from scratch (including the meat substitutes) and have very strict policies in place to ensure everything is fresh and preservative-free! So stoked to have this restaurant so close by - we will be regulars I'm sure. We ended up coming home and watching Neighbors.
On Saturday morning, we lingered in bed for a bit before taking Townes on a walk at the Clyde Shepard Nature Preserve in our neighborhood. I fall in love with the bamboo path every time. The tire swing was also pretty awesome! :)
We met up with Victor and Anna at Bell Street Burritos for lunch. YUM! The weather has been to-die-for in Atlanta lately.
After lunch, we did some errands and saw all of the Fall items out at every store - including these mammoth pumpkins at Whole Foods! The picture does not do them justice!
We spent the evening in making a lovely dinner - mashed sweet potatoes, asparagus, cornbread, and vegan crab cakes from Whole Foods. We don't usually buy these vegan cakes, so it's always a nice treat when we do!
I ended up making some handmade gifts for some friends and finished this huge scarf that I'd been putting off. Not I just have to sew the ends together to make it an infinity scarf - just in time for colder weather!
On Sunday, we slept in a bit, made a nice breakfast, and then watched the documentary, Maidentrip, on Netflix. It's about Dutch teenager, Laura Dekker, who was the youngest person to sail around the world alone. It was pretty inspiring!
I'm trying to enjoy the lovely flowers before they are succumb to old man Winter...
Sunday evening was spent with family celebrating Nana's 88th birthday!
She's quite the knock out, hey?
