A Much Needed Break

Today is the first day that I've been on my blog (or even Pinterest!) for nearly two weeks.  Last week was grad exam week at the high school, so I had NO free time, and this week is Spring Break, and I was more focused on spending time with friends and family than maintaining my blog (and understandably so).  This week has been so relaxing!  My husband and I took a small two day trip to Atlanta. It's only two and a half hours from our home, so the drive was easy, and it still felt like we were far away.  It was a much needed break!

Our first visit to IKEA.  Oh my word! I wanted to live in one of the pretend houses they have set up in there!

Our King Suite in the Lovely Hampton Inn in Buckhead

What a cute couple =)

Copeland's Cheesecake Bistro.  I had crab stuffed ravioli and he had the most perfectly cooked steak either of us had ever seen!

Philips Arena to watch the Atlanta Hawks play the Cavaliers.  We got there way early... before almost everyone else!

I love this picture. Thank goodness for automatic timers!

Footprints Jamaican Restaurant in Underground Atlanta.  He didn't eat anything here, but I got my Jamaican Beef Patty fix!  My mother used to live in Jamaica with her family, and she definitely passed along the love of the food to me!

I found him a comic book store to scour! He found a few books for his collection.

My winnings from a scratch-off lottery card =)

$5 milkshake from the Silver Skillet.  Clint Eastwood had eaten there ten days earlier.  We just missed him!

  1. Looks like a fun trip. Our daughter lives there so we visited two weekends ago and went to the aquarium. :)

    1. We didn't get to the aquarium this time, but I have heard it's wonderful! When we go again, I'd love to go there and also check out Stone Mountain. There's just so much to do!
