Five On Friday – Weekend Trip to ATL

Hellooooo errrrybody, It's Friiiidaaaay!!!!  Can you tell I'm just a little excited?!  I'm currently on my lunch break from work and wishing that it was 4:30 because...

O N E 

Could I be more excited for this weekend?!  My parents are keeping the kiddos while hubs and I head to Atlanta for the Dave Matthews Band concert at Aaron’s Amphitheatre.  This will be my 19th time seeing them since 2002, and I’ve seen them every single year since then, with the exception of the fluke year of 2011 when they decided not to tour (talk about withdrawals).  I know I’ve posted this picture before, but this is Boyd Tinsley (the violinist for DMB) and me back in 2013… BUCKET LIST CHECK!  Now to meet Dave…

I’m still trying to figure out what to wear, but I think I’m leaning toward this dress because it’s low maintenance, comfy, and cool since it’s supposed to be 90 degrees and sunny.  I wore it when we were at the beach, and it is seriously the most comfortable dress ever… and I don’t have to wear a strapless bra with it!  Anybody else hate those as much as I do?  Just me??

This picture doesn't really do it justice... it's much cuter in person and the lace detail is fantastic!

Speaking of ATL… while we’re there, we’re also heading to Ikea to pick up a few things before the concert… Momma needs some hanging frames!  I’m gonna grab nine of the trusty rusty Ribbas for a gallery wall and then my home office/craft room will finally be finito, DONE, COMPLETE!!  (After the painstaking chore of hanging them, that is.  Anybody wanna come do that for me?) 
F O U R 

After Ikea and before the concert, we are heading to dinner somewhere… still trying to decide where, but I’m fighting the urge to just go to Cheesecake Factory, our old standby.  We don’t have one here so we always jump at the chance to eat there whenever we can.  However, I just know that I will feel miserable if I eat a food portion fit for the Jolly Green Giant followed by a chunk of a cheesecake bigger than my dog (because you can’t not get cheesecake when you’re there) and then sit out in the southern summer heat all evening, so I think it’s best to try to find something a little less filling.  I’m leaning toward Max Lager’s Wood-Fired Grill & Brewery or SweetWater Brewing Company and I will probably grab something a little on the lighter side.

Did I mention that my parents are keeping the babes over night?  We all know what that means… Brian and I both get to sleep in on Sunday!!  AT THE SAME TIME, Y'ALL.  Happy weekend to us! 

Y’all enjoy your weekends!  XO
