Another great week is in the books. We had a fun lunch date with my mom up in Marietta early in the week. We had sandwiches out on the patio at Canvas (a new spot for us), and the best part was their doughnut shop below the restaurant! Afterward, we strolled down some streets near the Square and admired historic homes that we’d love to buy when we win the lottery. 😉 Marietta has some really beautiful historic homes surrounding the downtown area. 

On Friday, we took advantage of another day of gorgeous weather and walked at Piedmont Park with my mom. The start of the weekend called for a little family date at Zama, a new, nicer Mexican place that opened up nearby. We had delicious ritas, and the live music covered up any noise made by LL, who had decided to boycott her nap that afternoon. 

We hit up the Peachtree Road Farmers Market Saturday morning and picked up some different meats for next week’s dinners, had treats from The Little Tart Bakeshop and wood fired pizza from our friends at S&J’s Pizza, and also got a meal from Garnish and Gather (like a local Plated or Blue Apron service) to cook this week. The recipe includes popcorn to crust the chicken with, so I’m intrigued!

One of my college friends got married Saturday down in Newnan, GA, and it was the most perfect day for a wedding! The ceremony was in her parents’ backyard overlooking the lake, and the reception took place at a really neat barn/event space on a beautiful piece of property. It was a lovely way to kick off wedding season! 

We rounded out the weekend with a cookout at my parents’ house, and I think Craig is still full. 😉 Grilled sausage, burgers and dogs, piping hot French fries,  slaw, ice cold watermelon, and homemade ice cream and cheesecake bars… it’s safe to say that no one left hungry. Leighton entertained us with her food-eating antics, and she LOVED trying a huge slice of watermelon for the first time. I think it helped her little gums, because she cut her first TWO teeth this weekend!!  We didn’t even know the first one (bottom front) had come in until my mom saw it while babysitting her Saturday night. The second one came in next to it the very next day. Our baby is growing up before our eyes!
