Happy Friday!!  It was so nice this morning when I stepped outside, a little unexpected as to how perfect it was.  I am very much looking forward to the weekend in Atlanta with James.  Originally we had planned to go to Six Flags, but we decided that it was just too much with our New Orleans and Oxford weekends coming up.  So the plan is to just chill and relax for the next two days.  Tomorrow night we will be going to a Push Start dinner at the Goat Farm, which thinking about is making my mouth water as I type!

I really love the supper club premise, which is already pretty popular in Atlanta (and other cities) and is just now starting to become a more frequent occurrence in Birmingham.  The idea is to share a table with a group of people, who you may or may not know, pay a set fee and enjoy a dinner prepared by a local chef in a non-restaurant setting.  It’s a great way to make new friends, learn more about food and participate in great conversation.  If you get the opportunity to attend one, you must go!  You won’t regret it.  By attending only a handful myself, it’s already taught me to appreciate and view food in a whole new way.

I turned 1000 pics old this week on Instagram!! 😀  Hard to believe that I’ve taken that many.  It still remains one of my favorite social media sites as it encourages creativity and documentation without a whole lot of effort.  I don’t always use it everyday, but I find that I think about posting when I’m feeling inspired, happy, or inclined to share.  It also makes me feel good to see what other people post, like a min-glimpse into their lives through pictures.  I’ve discovered so many interesting people who I wouldn’t have ever known otherwise.

I hope you have a wonderful and safe weekend.  Go outside and do something fun!  It should be one of the best all year temperature-wise.  See you on Monday…
