Weekend in Atlanta

Greg and I left right after work on Friday evening for a weekend adventure in Atlanta. Besides the airport and driving through on my way other places, this has actually been my very first time visiting the city. We were mostly coming for one of Greg’s client’s wedding, but it also gave us a good reason to visit other friends and explore.

I somehow managed to sleep in until after 9am yesterday, something I haven’t done in months. By the time we showered and made breakfast, we headed out for what was a beautiful day. First, we went to the Georgia Aquarium. By the time we left, lunch was calling our names. After a quick search on Urban Spoon, we found Googie Burger, a relatively cheap fast-casual burger spot in the middle of a park. 

Greg got a double Googie Burger with fries and I had the Veg Out Burger (black bean patty and veggies) with a vanilla milkshake.

Can you say, “Yum!”?? This lunch hit the spot.

After the food, we were refueled and ready for the next tourist attraction- CNN Headquarters. We took a behind the scenes tour of the building and got to see some pretty interesting things. If you are ever in Atlanta and haven’t done so already, I would suggest this tour! Very cool.
Next up it was time for the wedding. It was a quick but beautiful ceremony. I have a different perspective of weddings now that I have my own wedding to plan 🙂 
We grabbed a few light snacks during the casual reception, but were trying to save up for dinner with our friends. We didn’t quite save enough room though and decided to split a quesadilla for dinner from Cinco

We also sucked down some frozen strawberry margaritas. Combined with the chips, salsa and guacamole, this spread was perfect.

We finished off the night with frozen yogurt. It never gets old!
Today Greg and I face reality and have to deal with some car trouble. We are taking his car to a shop first thing (thankfully we found ONE car repair shop open on a Sunday) and trying to get on the road back to Charleston soon. Pray the flashing lights aren’t indicating anything too serious!
I hope you all are having a great weekend!
