Things to Do in Atlanta This Weekend…



Every year Atlanta and its surrounding areas manage to cram every possible fun ass event into one month – October. Chances are if you are planning on doing something fun this weekend, you had a hard time choosing that thing over five other fun things. And on Monday you will find out about five other things that you would have loved to do but didn’t even know were happening. DAMN YOU A-TOWN!!!!!

Here are a few options for you if you are in our fair city this weekend and have finished your Halloween costume:


Reunions, Cute Shoes, and No Pants


Style means something different to everyone in our family.

My shoes were awesome but they killed my feet by the end of the evening. Did I mention I think I have gout? Yes I am old.

Joe’s look is always effortless and obviously his feet never hurt.

Aaron was in no mood for clothing and instead donned his new Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle underwear for this photograph.

We were dolled up and headed to my 25th high school reunion when my mother-in-law snapped this photo.  Vodka tonics and laughs with the fine folks who made high school bearable on Saturday night; a tour of the new school on Sunday afternoon. People hung around with the same folks they did in 1989, men had less hair, and nearly everyone had bigger waistlines. You know how those things go.

I hope you all had a great weekend and wore pants as little as possible!

Friday Optimism



Something happens on Fridays. If you work a Monday through Friday job like I do, there is a little bit more spring in your step on this day. My officemate and I refer to this as “Friday Optimism”. No matter what goes down on this day, it doesn’t matter as the following day is Saturday –  the best day ever.

I am feeling very optimistic today and am looking forward to trying to get a few things done this weekend.  Let’s see how many of these I actually do:


Have you made any amazing plans for the weekend? Take a cue from the stormtroopers and have a great time, enjoy the ones you’re with…and maybe have some ice-cream.
