Georgia on my Mind

Sarcastic enthusiasm about the 8 hours I would be spending in the car
My driver...

The Olympic Torch :)

Uhm... Delish death on a bun... the grease is outrageous but oh so good

I am looking a little funky in this, I am not sure why

Nick telling the poor woman who doesnt speak english what to include in the picture


The only picture we didnt take in the last 20 minutes of our trip
Ok so the back story. Nick had an internship at Invesco last summer and some of his old bosses wanted to have lunch with him. Nick has been looking around for a new job and this little opportunity cam up. So we packed our bags and headed down. So we left Thursday night since I had to be in Richmond for work until 3. We stopped and spent the night at Nicks parents house and set the alarm for 4am!!!!!!
It was a hectic morning since Nick had a meeting with HR at 10am and we had a 5 and a half hour drive. We get to Nicks meeting and I am stuck by myself in Atlanta for 2 hours so where do I go? The mall. But this is no ordinary trip. Nick's car is a stick. katie does not drive a stick... Katie def does not drive a stick through downtown friggin Atlanta.... So I almost died twice...but I made it to the mall :) can I just tell you it was fabulous. Banana Republic was having killer sales so I grabed a skirt for me and a sweater for Nick and headed back to pick up the man. The GPS said it would take me 10 minutes to get to the restaurant where I was to meet some of the upper level management. WRONG It took me 30 minutes of one way streets, 2 parking garages and walking 4 blocks in 100 degree weather and heels to show up looking like a hot mess and being 30 minutes late.
THEN Nick has another meeting, I told him no more driving for me. So i got to sit in the lounge and read my book (Love the One you are with) have unlimited supply of coke and sit in air conditioning. This meeting was an hour and then another two hours of me getting to meet all of these mysterious people.
So after me acting like such a good girl Nick took me to an out door mall where I just fawned over everything I didnt need to buy and sweating to death in the Atlanta heat.
We met up with Nick's old friend Arjun who showed us around downtown Atlanta and we ate at an awesome burger bar place.
We called it a night after that and headed to Nick's Aunt's house for some shut eye.
The plans for Saturday were to go to the lake and jet ski. Well ofcourse it storms... the one day we can go so we just hung around the house until we me up with Nick's old boss for dinner.
The next day we jumped in the hot tub before getting ready to head out of town. We packed our things and as we are passing through downtown Atlanta on our way to VA... Nick heard me gasp when we passed the Varsity so we stopped in and grabbed a few hot dogs and headed back home.
Not the most fun trip but I enjoyed it nonetheless.
Do you guys have any favorite spots to go to in Atlanta?
