One of the many perks in our marriage is my getting to tag along with Peter on some of his work trips. Now that the kids are getting a little bit older and we have some awesome grandparents who are willing to babysit, it has been a bit easier for me to try and go with him. We did the math and put together that (besides overnight trips) it has been 5 years since we went on a trip just the two of us. Sidenote: We did try to get away 2 years ago for our 5th anniversary, but surprise - I was 5 weeks pregnant on that trip and was miserably sick! So I'm not counting it - we had a tagalong! Needless to say, we have been feeling past due for some time away together!
Now that Sabrina is a year old, I felt okay with the idea of leaving her. It was hard to say goodbye to all of my babies, knowing it would be a week before I see them again but I know they will be in great hands and having a wonderful time while I take advantage of some R&R!
So, off to Atlanta we were bright and early Sunday morning! I'm still not a huge fan of flying but I handle it just fine now. I actually slept most of the journey. We got in to Atlanta around 7PM and got to the hotel and unpacked and were off to explore the surrounding area just a little bit. We are in Midtown Atlanta, so we kind of thought it would be a hopping place, but we quickly discovered a major difference with big town living in the South. It was a ghost town on a Sunday night - no one on the streets, no cars on the road, and no restaurants were open. It was kind of creepy, but also kind of cool.
After our little jaunt around a few blocks, a quick trip to pick up snacks at the grocery store and a little help from our phones to find a restaurant - we ironically ended up finding a restaurant right next to the hotel. We ended up finding "Waffle House" which apparently is quite a bit chain breakfast place on this side of the country. The staff was really, really nice and the waffles were amazing. Peter's favorite part is we got a ton of food super cheap! Never could find something that cheap and good in our parts. Waffle House, start moving to the West Coast please :)
Then it was back to the hotel to unwind and relax a bit. It wasn't too exciting of a first day but I was with my man and that is all that mattered! Looking forward to a very fun and relaxing week!
