Well, I am leaving work in a moment. I have to run some errands and then I'm off to pick up Shannon and Alysia. I'm taking the laptop with me so I should be on periodically.

Everyone have a lovely Valentine's Day! I'll be back home sometime Tuesday :hug2:

Re: I'm off to Atlanta

It is MUCH chillier here than the weather channel said :nono:

We went to the World of Coca Cola this morning. We had lunch at a place called The Fying Biscuit Cafe. YUMMMM. I had oven baked chicken breast, grilled mac and cheese (OMG it is my firm belief that all mac and cheese shoud be grilled!!!) and collard greens. It also came witha flying biscuit. THe biscuit had a light sugar coating which was nice but the biscuit was not fluffy enough to fy :thumbsdown:

We went to the Margaret Mitchell house and museum this afternnon. It was short but nice. I have got to go read Gone with the Wind agaiin when I get back home.

We were going to go to Pitty Pats Porch for supper tonight but we were too full for our 7pm reservation. So I think we may be going to the Old Spaghetti Factory in a bit.

Tomorrow we are off to the auarium and Titanic exhibit.

The Bodies exhibit is here too so we're going to try and squeeze that in.

Oh we are! The Coke place has a testing room with 64 flavors of Coke. We were enjoying watching people sample the Beverly :tongue: We also got to meet the Coke Polar Bear! I have pics I'll upload when I get back home.

So, although we missed our reservation, I called and they told us to come on over. we went to dinner at www.pittypatsrestaurant.com Thank you to catrancher for the suggestion! Oh my goodness, did we eat WELL!! It was beyond good. We cannot move to Atanta or else we will all be big as a house.....this could explain why so many people are out jogging :yes:

Well we are back at the hotel just relaxing before our feast tonight. We're going back to Miss Pittypat's for supper :yes: it was sooo good.

We went to the Bodies Exhibition last night. Hmmm....mighty expensive for such a short tour. I don't think I am ever going to eat turkey again to be perfectly honest...bleck.

We got free dessert the other night.....we had the peach cobbler with cinnamon ice cream and the key lime pie. They were both very good.


Did I mention that the cheerleaders are in town????

Downtown Atlanta is like downtown Richmond :sigh: economically depressed and noone goes downtown unless there is a conference or something.

Miss Pittypat's was practically empty tonight...except for about 60 asian men in black suits....interesting. Our meal was superb again. Tonight they gave us black eyed peas and collard greens with the meals. Shannon had the pecan pie....oh.my.goodness was that yummy!

Apparently the cheerleaders went home today.
