This past weekend, Jennifer and I took off to Atlanta for her Birthday. Jessica couldn't come this time. She is 35 weeks pregnant and she had a baby shower with family on Saturday. We missed her so much! The drive down was uneventful, until we got about 5 miles from the Georgia line. Apparently, there is a sink hole in the right hand lane, and traffic starting backing up and we ended up sitting in traffic for close to an hour and a half. I found this picture on wspa.com. We finally arrived in Atlanta, and met Julie and Steve at Babies R Us. They had to pick up their crib, but it wouldn't fit in either of their cars, so I drove my suburban down, to transport the crib. After trying for a little bit, it finally fit very tightly in the back. I wish I had taken a picture, but I forgot. For dinner, we went to Olive Garden, and I got their new pansottis with sausage. It was so yummy. After dinner we went to Julie's condo and made brownies for Jennifer's birthday. That night, we stayed up late talking, and just hanging out.
Saturday morning, we woke up with one mission, to take Jennifer to get Chicken and Waffles. After driving around downtown Atlanta for 30 minutes, we finally found the restaurant, and there was a crowd of people waiting in line, so we decided to drive to the other location in Lithonia, GA and hoped it wasn't as crowded.
Well, we did have to wait, but only about 20 minutes. Jennifer and I ordered the "Midnight Train" which is 4 chicken wings and a waffle. Julie ordered chicken fingers and mac and cheese. She wasn't brave enough to try the chicken and waffle.
Here is the Birthday girl, enjoying her chicken and waffle.
Here's my plate...yummy!!
After lunch, we went shopping for a little bit.
Then it was time to go back to Julie's to pack our bags, and head home. The drive home was a lot better. There was hardly any traffic, and we made great time. We had such a good time in Atlanta, and am so glad we could go. Not sure how many more girls weekends we will have, since Jessica's little girl will be here in a month, and Julie's little boy will be here in 4 months. I am just grateful for the time we do get to spend together.
