Weekend Re-Cap!

I don't have much time to blog today since my day is filled with meetings. However, I had to do a quick blog about my weekend. This weekend was so busy, but it was so much fun.

Friday night after work Michael and I headed to Atlanta to celebrate my brother-in-laws (Michael's brother) birthday. It was great! I had a wonderful time spending time talking to Matthew and all his friends. I even had some bonding time with his precious girlfriend. Below is a picture of me and the birthday boy (please note that the red eyes on Matthew are from him getting something in his eyes, we didn't drink that excessively).

Michael and I stayed at Matthew's house that night. We slept in late, and then went to a wonderful brunch with our friend Martin. Below is a picture of Michael and Martin from Friday night. I don't have any pictures from brunch. :)

When we got back to Athens Saturday afternoon, we celebrated the birthday of one of our friends by grilling out at his house. Him and his wife were such great hosts! Another couple we are friends with was also there, so we had a fun, relaxing night.

Sunday I went to lunch with my friend, Erin. After lunch, Erin and I took a trip to the pet store. We had so much fun playing with the puppies. We played with the sweetest Lhasa Apso puppy. He looked a lot like the picture below. He was so fat and fluffy!

Sunday night, Michael and I attended The Taste of Athens. Sampling the different foods, wine and beer was amazing. Of course, we ate way too much, but I think everyone there did the same thing! I just wish I didn't have to weigh in at Weight Watcher tomorrow!

The Taste of Athens also hosted a silent auction. At the silent auction, I fell in love with a terra cotta pigeon. It was precious, and it had a great story behind it. I stalked the pigeon all night long to ensure that I was the highest bidder. Below is a picture of my pigeon.

Here's the story behind the pigeon that made me love it so much!

All in all it was a wonderful weekend! I hope you had a wonderful weekend too! I'm not sure I am going to have time to do my usual Monday post, but if I don't I will definitely make up for it tomorrow! Have a happy Monday! I'm off to another meeting!
