I hope you're all having a great Sunday. I'm still getting used to the whole full time work thing, and I haven't been able to post as much this week. I really enjoy blogging, so I'm going to try to keep posting as much as possible. I may do more weekend posting since that would be easier than working it in on a weekday, so we'll see what happens over the next couple of weeks.
Today's post is just a mishmash of random pictures taken since last Thursday (which was our 4 month wedding anniversary), when we decided to have a fun date night after work. Of course, Scoutmob helped us out as always and suggested a restaurant less than 10 miles away, a place was called Bambinelli's. It was SO good, and super cheap. Here's what we got, all for less than $15 (sorry these pictures are terrible. Low lighting and iPhone cameras don't mix).
Garlic bread came with the meal. It was hot and fresh and really tasty.
My favorite pasta is definitely plain fettuccine alfredo. How adventurous, right? This one was particularly good, and there was so much that I saved half for dinner the next night.
Thomas had cannelloni. He was very impressed. We'll definitely be back.
Then, it was Friday! There's just always something so exciting about Friday to me. I guess it's because the day is filled with the promise of the weekend? Who knows. But my excitement was definitely showing as I finished getting ready for work.
Friday work went well, and I was glad to see my first work weekend. I loooove Fall Saturdays, and there are tons of festivals and fairs going on in Atlanta. While we were reading about them and making plans, we had a leisurely morning drinking coffee and eating waffles.
Jack spent the morning snuggling in bed...
While Charlotte rolled around in laundry. Would you believe me if I said that we leave it on the floor because she loves it? Because she seriously does. It helps that it's also in a sunny spot.
After lounging for a while, we headed out for some errands. First on the agenda was a stop at BB&B to buy K-Cups (we have a Keurig at work and it's BYOC) and to get me a coffee cup! I am SUCH a real grown up.
We named this little beauty Starla Copco (because she's Copco brand).
Next we ventured in to TJMaxx to look at bags. I've been wanting a bigger purse for work (useful for carrying lunch, papers, etc). We didn't find the right bag there, but we did find these guys, and they were really hard to pass up. Because they're covered in hair. I wonder how many people they had to shave to make them.
Then we stopped by Target, where we found THE bag. I also got a new wallet, which Thomas actually picked out. He's good at things like that, lucky for me. I had a gift card and both were on sale, so I got the bag and wallet for less than $8. Cha-ching!
After some afternoon relaxation, we went back and forth on what we wanted to do Saturday night. A cold front hit yesterday, and it's been SO Fallish! I'm absolutely loving it. During the day, it was around 60 degrees! We've even brought out our snuggly down blanket.
After much discussion, we ended up deciding on the nearby North Georgia State Fair. I actually took my big camera (since it could fit in my big bag), so I got some really great pictures. I'll be updating about those tomorrow, so keep an eye out!
Happy Sunday:]-T, K, J, & C
