Puppies, Midgets & Penguins, Oh My!

Last weekend I flew down to Atlanta to see Courtney and we had a great visit. Friday night we met Beth out for drinks at Fado and followed that by a nice sushi dinner at Genki.

Saturday morning I got to meet some of the remaining brittany spaniel puppies who were left from a recent litter. They were so cute! It was hard not to steal one and hide him in my carry on luggage going home! After we got cleaned up from playing with the puppies, we drove up to Blackstock Winery for a tasting, and while their port wine was delicious, I did not bring any home with me because I was too stubborn to check my bag! I did load up my suitcase with lots of purchases from the Georgia Premium Outlets we visited Saturday afternoon though. The highlights were the Lucky Jeans outlet, Ann Taylor, Eddie Bauer and the Gap. Yay for a new spring wardrobe!

Saturday night Courtney made us fajitas for dinner, which were accompanied by my new favorite drink: beergaritas!! (see recipe below) After dinner, we hung out in Courtney & Greg's recently finished basement, enjoying the bar and pool table. Courtney tried to distract her opponents with some serious dance skills and somewhat questionable rap lyrics, and for the most part it worked! Just ask Greg.

Sunday Greg made us the world's largest strawberry pancakes for breakfast, and then Courtney and headed to the Georgia Aquarium on our way to the airport. It was fantastic! My favorite exhibit was the Cold Water area, which includes the beluga whales, sea otters, sea lions and penguins. I also really enjoyed the tunnel aquarium, where you can see their two famous whale sharks, a hammerhead, sawfish and many stingrays. If you are ever in Atlanta, I highly recommend stopping off at the aquarium. It is currently the world's largest!

1 12 oz can frozen lime concentrate
9-12 oz tequila
3 12 oz mexican beers
Mix all ingredients together in a pitcher and serve over ice. Yummy!
