Guess where I'll be tomorrow??!

Tomorrow night my flight leaves sunny California to take me home to a freezing and {possibly} snowy Atlanta, GA! If I have any readers in the north Atlanta area, please tell me this isn't true! I'm not sure I can handle snow after laying out poolside not even 2 days ago!



This is my parent's house! I didn't have an actual picture myself so I google-ed the neighborhood name and this was one of the pictures on the properties website! How crazy! Luckily my parents have since gotten rid of the hideous minivan in the driveway.

My to-do list while home:
  • shop
  • eat at the Biscuit Barn
  • eat at Zaxby's
  • eat at Three Dollar Cafe
  • eat the best barbecue ever
  • temporarily join 24 hour gym by my house to avoid caloric overload from all the eating I'll be doing
  • see my friends!
  • not think about work for an entire week
  • shop some more
  • get my hair cut
  • sleep in
  • feed my stationery and cute things fix at Swoozie's
  • hit up the J Crew at the outlet mall
  • stay up late
  • get a manicure and pedicure
  • convince Mom to buy me something at Mint Julep
all while freezing my booty off!

I'll miss my boys, but this is a much needed mental break! Work and school have been extra stressful lately so this vacation has come at the perfect time! I haven't had any time off since Christmas so to say I'm ready is definitely an understatement.

Don't forget to enter my Birthday Giveaway #2 by this Friday at 8 pm PST. You could win a monogrammed cosmetic bag, a monogrammed shell necklace and your choice of Kate Spade etiquette books!

I'm now off to count down the hours until I'm HOME!!! :)

Yay! Thats so exciting for you that you are coming back home to Atlanta. I am IN Atlanta right now and its COLD but not snowing, yet. Have fun doing all the fun Atlanta things :) I think you need to add Chick-fil-a to your list.

How can it be snowing down in Atlanta? We're having humid rain in Boston. I think this is one of the craziest springs yet. Oh well, have a great time! Visits home are always a reprieve.

Oh, I hope it doesn't snow! With me being from Georgia also but living in Louisiana I know how it is to miss things from home! I was also going to mention Chick-Fil-A! We have one in Baton Rouge though so I can have it anytime! Those places you plan to visit sound great especially the BBQ! LOVE ME SOME BBQ! Have an awesome time and be careful! BTW, your parents house is beautiful! :)

i'm so jealous. i lived in atlanta (in buckhead on pharr road) for a little over a year after college graduation. i wish that i'd stayed there - i loved it!! i miss lenox square and phipps plaza and the highlands and midtown and all those fabulous places. i still contemplate moving back but hubby is not on board :(

Jules said...

I hope you have a wonderful trip home. They have a beautiful house! It looks like you'll have plenty to do. Catching up with friends and shopping sounds like a lot of fun.

I've been at my parent's house the last 5 days and it's been SO wonderful and relaxing. I love coming home.

My Josh's parents live in GA near Augusta! We love visiting them....and Zaxby's!

Have fun!

Unfortunately, yes, it is COLD here right now. But its supposed to get warmer by end of the week! Enjoy the visit with your parents!!

Thats so fun that you are going home. I wish I could go home tooooo! (Okay well since I'm married now I guess technically VA is my home now...but I can't help thinking of TN as home.)

I *love* Zaxby's. And I miss it oh so much! Eat some Zax Sauce for me!

Don't be hatin' on the minivan. I always said I'd NEVER drive one. I should never have said that.

Rumor is that there were snow flurries yesterday in Atlanta. I am in Auugsta, it was just freezing! So I see your "Zaxby's" list of things to do. Have you ever eaten at Raising Canes? I think it is better and the fries are so yummy but they don't have salads?!!!

Muffy said...

Sounds like a blast!!!! Have FUN!!!

Jackie said...

MmmMMmm Zaxby's. This is the only place I will eat honey mustard. So delicious!

The Blonde Duck said...

Popped in from Pam's blog to say hi!

BroncoMom said...

Ok, so we had some snow flurries on Tuesday. I live outside Atlanta in Gwinnett county. It was mighty cold yesterday. Today is beautiful high 60's. One thing about Atlanta weather. If you don't like it stick around it will change soon enough. Welcome back to the East Coast Sweet Tea!

Amber said...

OMG! I LOVE Zaxby's....I used to live in South Carolina but am from the Midwest and have since moved back... no more Zaxby's for me. Eat some chicken for me! :)
