It’s (almost) the freakin’ weekend

It’s a beautiful week in Atlanta, which means it’s time for fun, outdoor activities.  It’s Thursday so that means I can start thinking about the weekend.  (You know how much I love Thursdays.)

My parents are coming to town tomorrow to see my lacrosse team play and spend the weekend with David and me.  On Friday night, we’re going to dinner at Dogwood Restaurant, in Midtown.  I recently discovered this yummy restaurant at a work event for David.  Their grits are amazing and the wait staff were very accommodating of my dietary needs.  The grits are incredible.  Of course I ordered the short rib.

On Saturday morning, Mom and I plan on checking out the Atlanta Botanical Gardens to see what’s blooming right now.  She and I went last fall but I’m sure the gardens will look completely different.  I’m hoping the tulips are still out!  If we’re really up and at ‘em on Saturday I hope to stop by the Peachtree Farmers’ Market to get veggies for a fresh, Georgia grown dinner on Saturday night.


It wouldn’t be spring without the kick off of baseball season, so on Sunday afternoon we’re going to the Braves game.  Sure, I’m not the biggest baseball fan but I love the Braves’ gluten-free concession stand AND the Avett Brothers are performing a free concert after the game!

braves I don’t think I could take advantage of my Georgia residence any more this weekend.  Well, there is the Masters.  Sorry, David…maybe next year.
