Weekending {8/31}

Let's all have a moment of silence for the month of August. I cannot believe that it is leaving us. Here in Atlanta, it will stay in the 80s for a while, but it just doesn't feel like summer once August is over.

My Friday started with a busy day at home. I blogged about my schedule this year, which allows me to spend Fridays off, and then I hit the road for a million errands, including returns and a trip to Target.

When AR got home, we went to downtown Decatur for the evening. For those outside of Atlanta, Decatur is a community five miles east of Atlanta, and it has a beautiful downtown with some excellent restaurants. We ate dinner at Chai Pani, an Indian street food place.

After dinner, we walked around for a few hours (and made a stop at the frozen yogurt shop!) before coming home.

I started Saturday with a workout class at West Coast Workouts. Have you tried this? I went last weekend also and it is great! The classes focus on full body movements, rather than isolating muscles. On Saturday I felt like we jumped around holding weights for an hour and I am so sore now.

Saturday afternoon we MET TRISHA YEARWOOD! If you are a country music fan, you know how amazing this was. I grabbed tickets to meet Trisha and receive a signed cookbook from her at the new Williams-Sonoma at Pone City Market.

Sadly, we had to wait in line for over 3 hours. Which gave me time to admire all the gorgeous things inside Williams-Sonoma. And time to sample all their pumpkin treats.

But it was worth it!

We went grocery shopping and made some of Trisha's "unbaked chicken' for dinner, which was excellent.

Sunday was a day of rest, laundry, and studying. Oh, and finishing the Real Housewives of NY finale. #don'tbeuncool #okayscarlettohara


Which author or celebrity would you wait in a 3+ hour line for?
New favorite workout? 

Linking up with Biana & Meghan


  1. That's so exciting that you met Trisha Yearwood! I've actually waited in line for around that long to meet Teresa and Joe from RHONJ, but I don't consider her a "celebrity", and she's not even my favorite from the show.

  2. Downtown Decatur is so cute and has some great restaurants! Can’t wait to go checkout the new WS in Ponce!

  3. You met her and got a signed copy of her cookbook!?!? I'm so jealous. Sounds like a great weekend!

  4. That Indian street food place sounds really good! So neat you got to meet Trisha Yearwood! :)

  5. That's so awesome that you got to meet Trisha Yearwood! I know how standing in like for 3 hours is, we experienced that at the ACM Party for A Cause event this year, two nights in a row. #miserable but so worth it in the end!
