Craig’s family had planned to come down to visit us for the weekend, but at the last minute couldn’t make it. We missed having them in town to celebrate Mother’s Day, but we still had a fun couple days. Somehow, I managed to swing two dates with just the two of us – yeah! I’ve been wanting to try some new places around the city, so we checked out The Wrecking Bar for dinner Friday and Sun in My Belly for brunch on Saturday. We’d planned on grilling pizzas Saturday night with Craig’s family, so we instead invited some friends/family over to help us make use of all the dough. We probably ended up with a variety of 15 different toppings, and every pizza looked and tasted delicious! I can’t wait to do it again soon. Since we didn’t get to see our moms on Sunday, we spent the day working on a project in the basement and taking Coco for a walk in the park — the weather was beeeautiful in Atlanta! Happy belated Mother’s Day to all of you wonderful moms out there!

Other than the constant downpour on Saturday, what a lovely weekend it was at home! We didn’t really do much to celebrate Cinco de Mayo other than dinner at La Paz with our friends (my, how the times have changed), but we ate our way around town, and that was good enough for me. We had a dinner date with my brother and his fiance on Friday night, as it was the last time we’d see them before their wedding weekend…. which is now less than 2 weeks away! I can hardly believe it. I need to start practicing my toast so I can make it through more than 1 sentence without crying.

Sunday turned out to be really nice most of the day — the sun even made an appearance! We made a trip across town to the Grant Park Farmers Market to pick up some homemade pizza dough from our good friend Jonathan of S & J’s Pizza — and to eat some of that pizza, of course. We finished our weekend off with homemade burgers… yum! Why do so many of our weekends revolve around food?

Anna’s wedding colors were coral and turquoise – the bridesmaids matched the ocean perfectly.

They had some of the most delicious food I’ve ever eaten at a wedding.
Tenderloin, scallops, GIANT crab cakes, cheese grits, collards… mmm.

Somehow, we ended up across the street at the BBQ food trailer with the bride and groom after the after-party.
I love this photo of them dressed to the nines…. eating half-frozen corn dogs while the rest of us chowed down on some late-night BBQ.

Anna + Travis, thank you for including us in your special weekend! It was a trip I’ll always remember. Cheers to you!
