Weekending {6/22}

Oh Monday. You come too soon.

This was the first weekend AR and I were both home in four weeks. It was also our 4 year anniversary, and the two month mark until our wedding! Cue excitement and stress!!

Friday started with office lunch at Krog Street Market. I ate falafel and veggies at Yalla with a group from my office. This place has been on my eating bucket list for several months now, and I was glad to try it finally.

After work, AR and I went to Antico for pizza. Oh my gosh, it was so so good. We went at about 8pm and there was no line, which was shocking. Afterwards, we headed to Whole Foods to get grocery shopping done.

Don't laugh. We got drinks (wine for me, beer for him), and enjoyed the empty store and no lines. So much better than Saturday afternoon craziness.

Crepes at the Farmers Market. Long Run. Manicure. We ordered Aaron's tuxedo for the wedding and finalized all the accessories for the groomsmen. I can't wait to see Aaron in his tux. I love a man all dressed up :)

We went out Saturday night for our 4 year anniversary and tried a new place in Decatur. We went electronics free, so no photos, but we sampled fried grit tater tots, brussel sprouts, braised kale, and grilled asparagus. AR has a pork chop, but I stuck will all the yummy veggies. For dessert? Peach pie. I would totally recommend the Pinewood. It is just simple, good food, and the cocktail list is exceptional.

It makes me laugh every time I look at it.

Neither one of us was feeling good - which was made clear when I slept for over 10 hours on Saturday night. After homemade biscuits and turkey bacon, we headed to a coffee shop to work and read.

Do you still celebrate the day you and your significant other met?


Thanks for hosting the link-up, Biana and Meghan!


  1. I know the excitement of finally being home after all that on the go and you guys must have been so happy for some down time. And two months to go – so exciting! Ha, that is fun you can enjoy a drink while you grocery shop – I can see why you’d go at that time plus it’s always so much better when it’s quiet.

  2. electronics free date night is a great idea! more people (including myself) need to give this a try.

  3. Sounds like a really good weekend. I'm trying to put my phone on airplane mode a lot more when I'm out so that I can still use it for pictures but can't send/receive any texts/calls/social media notifications.

  5. Looks like a nice weekend! The Mr. and I will celebrate our 14th wedding anniversary this week, but we still like to recognize our first date...back in December of 1992! ~Ree
