Atlanta Trip

Well, I have been quiet on the blog for the last week, but I had quite a fun mini-vacation to Atlanta! I would like to share some of the highlights with you here today! I have plenty of cards to share with you this week, including a SKETCH CHALLENGE on Thursday, so be sure to check back! :) If you aren't interested in personal pictures, I apologize in advance that I don't have anything else today!
The first picture at the top was CERTAINLY a hightlight for me! I had the pleasure of meeting some lovely, fun, TALENTED ladies for lunch and a trip to Archiver's. From left to right, pictured are me, JenMarie, Tami Grandi, and Nina Brackett. Seriously, what a JOY and a PRIVILEGE!!

Friday night we enjoyed dinner at a GREAT place that Drew discovered browsing online. It's called Urban Pl8, and if you are in Atlanta, I suggest that you try it! It is a restaurant that makes delicious dishes using local and sustainable foods.
I ordered a Lime Agave Sparkling Water. YUM. So refreshing!
And the stir-fry brown rice and vegetables with hanger steak. Wow. It was so good!!
Cameron and Katy stared at the candlelight....
And enjoyed some after-dinner dancing. :) Haha.

We had a GREAT time at the zoo! These otters were a favorite...they just grouped together all of a sudden and started staring at things. TOGETHER! Freaky. But so funny!

At our snack break, Katy started dipping each piece of popcorn in water first. Eww!

We went to the first Chick-fil-A! Its was so funny to see BURGERS on the menu! But it was originally the Dwarf House restaurant, so there were all kinds of things. :)
Chick-fil-A/Dwarf House had this tiny door on the front wall, and Cameron and Katy LOVED going in and out of that door!
