It’s finally starting to warm up in Atlanta, and we finally have some bright blue skies! We decided to celebrate the beautiful day by enjoying Marietta Square. It seems most of Marietta felt the same way, because the Square was packed!
The first few flowers have just started blooming; it’s so refreshing to see flowers after a long, wet winter.
We enjoyed hanging out around the Square
We had such an amazing lunch at Taqueria Tsunami, a Latin-Asian fusion restaurant! Our waitress had the absolute best suggestions, because every single one of her recommendations tasted delicious. The avocado cilantro egg rolls were a delight. The tacos were so delicious, I completely forgot to take a photo of them! The dessert Empanadas tasted really good too.
I know this is late but better late than never! Valentines Day has always been an easy going holiday for us. We refuse to subject ourselves to the crowds and eat out! Instead, we created our own tradition where we cook spaghetti carbonara together and serve it on glittery heart shaped plates.
While enjoying dinner, we watched one of our favorite shows: The Walking Dead. The show is filmed in our area, and we have even caught them filming earlier seasons next to where we live!
I got some red roses for Stefanie along with two Amiibos of her favorite Animal Crossing characters!
It’s so rare that we get snow in Georgia, that when it does happen it’s a huge deal! Everyone clears out the grocery store for bread, milk and eggs because in the South, snow means FRENCH TOAST! Since we bought our home, all the snow threats have never produced much. Of course, looking at Pinterest I see lots of cute Christmas card inspirations with a snow covered house. This was going to be my chance! I had bought a “Merry Christmas” banner a year ago just for this moment. After a whole night of snow, we hardly got anything. It was super disappointing waking up and the yard wasn’t even covered, but that morning the snow started picking up. By 11, everything was mostly covered! After eating brunch we got ready to take photos in the snow. We tried 😂
Our Home covered from the ‘blizzard’
We decided to have some photo fun anyways
We put up the tripod and took a walk in the park next to our neighborhood. At this point the snow was already starting to melt, but we wanted to enjoy it while it lasted.
Betsy invited us to the Corn Dawgs Corn Maze in Loganville for her birthday. We got to spend lots of quality time with Gabby and Peter. Thanks to Gabby we have some photos from the day since my cell doesn’t take great night time photos. We had a lot of fun! The whole place is like an adult-sized playground, with giant swings, climbing obstacles, bouncy pillow pads and of course, the corn! I ended up pushing the giant tube-swing with 4 adults on it and two children inside. What a workout! That night, we navigated both the medium and hard mazes, while completing scavenger hunts to increase the difficulty. We also played in the corn pit (imagine a huge ball-pit filled with corn) with lots of our friends. We were finding corn kernels and husk for days. We also picked up another pumpkin for Halloween. It was the freshest I had seen all October, and its seeds were delicious!
Living in Atlanta it is so much easier to see groups live in concert. When we found out about LMFAO coming to Atlanta a few friends and I got together to buy tickets. Unfortunately Mike and Erica ended up sitting at the wrong spot when we took photos but we found them later. My favorite part had to be the show closer and SkyBlu came out with an Elephant speedo. It was so much fun!
