weekend festivities...

This weekend was one of those low-key weekends... you know the kind... the ones where you don't make any plans until a few hours before hand... a good mix of hang-out-time and do-nothing-time... yep... one of those weekends. My favorite kind...

Friday night we headed to Chuy's for dinner with our community group...
As a Texas girl, you can imagine my delight in enjoying some true Tex-Mex food... and Chuy's has amazing chips and salsa... which I personally believe is the mark of a good Mexican restaurant.

Saturday morning was welcomed with hearty brunch from Lynn's Paradise Cafe...

This place is awesome. You really can't beat the fabulous decor...

...or the bloody mary's. Just sayin'.

After our delicious mid-morning brunch, my friend Kim and I thought it would be best to scope out Lynn's variety store at the front of the restaurant... which of course, really means we tried on crazy hats...
Yes. That is a turkey on Kim's head.

And yes... I am armed and dangerous. Do not mess with me when I am wearing this hat.

Then, at the last second on Saturday evening, Lance and I decided to go see True Grit... which was surprisingly good. Really good actually. I was quite impressed.

The girl that played Mattie Ross (Hailee Steinfeld) was by far the most bad-ass-14-year-old ever. Hands down.

After the movie, we headed to Ramsey's Cafe on the World for a really late dinner.
We ate at the bar... which is always fun... because you can "people-watch" without being too weird or awkward.

Then yesterday, I spent a lot of quality time in the airport...

Which can only mean I am in Atlanta for work... hanging out with these two awesome girls...

What about you? How was your weekend?

Sounds like a great few days! We had an equally splendid/perfect/heavenly time... although we didn't have Kim McGinn so I think you win The Battle of the Better Weekend.

I don't get to Chuy's very often, but I am in love with their creamy jalepeno dip. Love. It.
