I'm gonna go back a few weeks to get this old bloggaroo up to date. A few weekends ago was my birthday. My husband and his 2 little accomplices decided to whisk me away for the weekend to Atlanta just to get away. We all needed that! It's only about a 4 hour drive from here. We had a great time, and to cap it off, the Blue Angels just happened to be having an airshow that weekend, so we got to see them perform on our way out. It was the most people I've ever seen at an airshow in my life, and let me tell you, I've been to many.

The main reason he chose Atlanta is because they have this:


Jumbo Shrimp Brochette. And the best grilled asparagus anywhere. This is heaven on a plate. It's one of my favorite things to eat anywhere. It's very heavy and filling and usually I can barely finish it...I hate to leave one little guy scraggling but with the asparagus and the better half of a bottle of wine, it's the best I can do! We joke that alot of our trips revolve around food!
We stopped into the CNN center for lunch when we first got into town and had some Chick fil a in the food court, and of course I had to stop in the gift shop and say hello to my boyfriend...

It was a great birthday and I got tons of awesome stuff, and here's some of my favorites:

below are kitchen gadgets: a mandolin (slicer-dicer thingy. allows for thiiiin slices to make fruit and veggie chips, well, that's what I'm gonna use it for) and a pasta drying rack. For when I make fresh pasta with my mixer and pasta attachment. I've done it once, and it made so much I had nowhere to put it and it was all sticking to itself. This is a necessity!! I can't wait to use them both!
