We had a great week over here, and it’s hard to believe March is right around the corner. I had a rare week off from photography work, so Leighton and I had a fun lunch date with my mom one day. We ate lunch at one of our favorite spots in Marietta Square, Taqueria Tsunami, and then wandered around the Square for a little bit of shopping. We got the yummiest champagne vinegar that I plan to use on a salad later this week.
My mom was also kind enough to babysit so we could have a date night on Thursday. We usually like to try new places, but we decided on an old favorite, Seasons 52, from when we loved in Buckhead. I appreciate that they post the calories on every menu item – and they have so many delicious dishes to choose from! I also love their mini desserts and always want to order about half a dozen of them, which obviously defeats the purpose of small portions… And while I love taking L so many places with us, it’s SO nice to get out with just my main squeeze for a few hours (and be able to eat my meal with both hands if needed and not while wrangling a very squirmy 5-month old who wants to reach for everything in sight nowadays). Date nights are the best, and this one was no exception!
We also got a wonderful last minute visit from my oldest and dearest friend and her husband over the weekend! They were traveling for work and made a (slightly out of the way) pit stop in Atlanta to stay with us for a couple days. We were super lazy on Saturday and hung out at the house all day, except for an afternoon cupcake run and dinner out that night. Nicole made us her yummy biscuits and gravy for breakfast one day and we pigged out on Dough in the Box donuts the next morning… so needless to say, we did not go hungry. They also got us hooked on the show Lip Sync Battle, so thanks to them for adding another show to our already-too-long lineup of tv watching. Leighton go so many snuggles from them and got to show off all her fun tricks. I love that although we typically only see each other maybe once or twice a year, she has been so amazing and has made the trip up here twice since Leighton was born to spend quality time with her and us. We had the absolute best time with them talking about their boys, making sweet memories with Leighton, and just enjoying each others’ company in the comfort of our cozy basement. 🙂
