Atlanta, Pt. 1

On Monday morning, I woke up with such speed, after only two hours of sleep. I was racing the clock since I had to be out the door by 9:45am to make it to McDonalds for their greasy yet delicious sausage, egg and cheese bagel. Plus I tried the Mocha Frappe, which I ended up liking a lot. I took a nap before my mom and I left for Atlanta. But I first found these amazing tiny pictures of my Grandma & Grandpa from 1977 and then my dad and his brothers working on something manly.
I was surprised that I was able to drive the whole way myself. I was fine and able to stay awake pretty easily since my mom was talking to me the whole time. That kept me talking and my brain functioning, etc. Same with why I don't fall asleep at work. I was impressed with a "fancy" Burger King that we stopped at as it got dark. We got to Jessica's house around 8:30pm, unfortunately Jonathan had to leave for Marine training before we got there. I was so anxious to see Jordyn, but had to wait until the next afternoon when we picked her up from pre-school.
This was the first picture I was able to get of James before all the batteries died, so I spent the rest of the day charging them. Jordyn opened some Halloween presents and did a Princess puzzle and a "Cooties" game with my mom. I gave Jordyn and James a bath after dinner. Oh- Jessica has been making delicious dinners this week. They all seem pretty simple, but I love how I am eating less and being healthy. Which is exactly how I plan to be once we move to LA. However, I did tell Michael that I should start practicing with dinners now (only on my days off) then spent quite some time on Pinterest saving dinner ideas that looked especially yummy!


  1. James' feet is a really nice photo. Unusual and different. I like it.
    The slides turned-out well, looking up toward the sun. Helping me put up a tall swing in the yard in north Georgia is G'pa Hawey, Rob Sheehan and his college roommate, Ken Perkins.

  2. I'm glad you had fun and enjoyed my cooking :) I enjoyed having you here I only wish you could have stayed longer...I love you :)
