I love Fall in the City

It seems like there is always something going on. The past few weekends everytime I step out my door there is something cool to experience. Just this month alone we've had a Pride Festival, Aids Walk, Breast Cancer Walk, and this past weekend was Taste of Atlanta.  Eric and I have been walking a lot lately so we've ended up in the middle of all the events.  It feels so great to be around everyone. It's such a good happy atmosphere. Now that it's almost Halloween I wonder what this weekend will hold.
I know on Thursday at the Botanical Gardens there is a pumpkin carving contest. I really want to go. Pumpkins, gardens and cheap but tasty beer sounds like my kind of place.  It seems like there is always something going on I am really happy I live here and can enjoy it.

Family fun

Eric's Dad is a very big baseball fan. So when he asked if we wanted to go to a Braves playoff game we said sure! We got our foam tomahawks out and cheered for the Braves. Alas they lost. I did have a good time watching the game and it's always good to see family. I don't get to see Eric's parents or sister often enough. Hopefully the Braves will do better next year and we can cheer them on to a winning game.

Busy Fall

Fall has been very hectic for me. Work wise, after hours, all the time. It seems like there is always something interesting that must be done. I figured I need to get back to blogging though so I'll start on a fresh new footing. This past weekend was amazing. It was also quite food orientated. Friday night I took Eric out on a date to Ecco. This very elegant and modern restaurant in our neighborhood. It was delicious. I will definitely be back.
This weekend also was Taste of Atlanta.It was also right in our back yard. So we had to check it out.
It was a lot of fun and a good way to get an interesting breakfast on a Sunday morning. Around 70 different restaurants from Atlanta come to give bites of what they have to offer. Needless to say We found some new restaurants that we will have to check out.  Some of my favorite highlights was a Banana and nutella Crepe from the Crepe Revolution. (Isn't that  great name.) and a suckling pig taco with pineapple salsa. Absolutely fantastic.
Lastly to burn some of those calories off we decided to walk around town. Later via Google I learned we walked 5 miles. All in all it was a fantastic and food filled weekend.

I love Harry Potter.

I've read all the books, more than once, seen the movies, and I enjoy playing the Wii game. It's cheesy but fun. I really really want to go to the Wizarding World of Harry Potter in Orlando. Alas I'm not sure when I would get a chance to go. Though my wonderful parents just went to Florida and decided to check it out. My Mom who I loaned her all my books to read loved the series and was just as excited to check it out. Though I couldn't go she sent me some special post cards from Hogsmeade, with real Hogsmeade post marks and brought me back a chocolate frog.  It came in a package just like the one pictured above. It was very exciting to get one and open it up.  Next up is the new and final movie that comes out soon. I can't wait to see it.
