Leavin' on a Jet Plane

Actually we will be driving in a 4-Runner. But that's besides the point! Tomorrow is my last day of work before I have a week of vacation. Woo hoo!

Mr. Vanilla Bean and I are headed down to Florida to spend Christmas with my family. I am so excited to soak up the sun and get away from this cold. I plan on hanging out in my bathing suit and flip flops as much as possible!

Yay for Christmas in Florida filled with palm trees, sunshine and all things wonderful! :)

A Weekend in Atlanta

I hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving. Mine was fun...and busy!

It started with Thanksgiving with the In-Laws and lots of good southern food....hashbrown casserole, candied sweet potatoes, squash casserole, pumpkin pie...yumm!

Then Friday we drove to Atlanta to see my Family. My sister is temporarily in Atlanta for school and my parents spent Thanksgiving with her. Anyway, the exiting part is that she is recently engaged and we spent Saturday shopping for Wedding Dresses - so fun! All the dresses she tried on were amazing! It made me want to buy one for myself!

After that, we met the boys (My sister's fiancé, my husband and my Dad) for Lunch in Marietta Square. If you are ever in Atlanta, you should definitely visit Sugar Cakes for Lunch! It was so delicious. Great Chicken Salad on fresh baked, buttery croissants. Creamy Butternut Squash Soup. Fabulous House Salads with Cranberries, Feta cheese and Balsamic Vinaigrette. And do not miss out on the desserts - Chocolate Croissants, Tiramisu and Cheesecake - that are so pretty you don't want to take a bite and ruin it. Oh, but your taste buds are so happy, when you do!

We made it safely back from Atlanta yesterday and today was back to work. Ugghh. I am really unhappy in my job right now. If anyone knows of a good job in Birmingham, let me know!
I hope everyone else had a great Thanksgiving too!
