Sliding right under the “Thursday” finish line with Nerd In the Brain’s weekly challenge to “show and tell” three things that brought you happiness during the week.
I had an absolutely delightful Memorial Day holiday – one of the best I can ever remember.
My parents came over from Birmingham on Friday afternoon and we went to dinner at our favorite restaurant, Bone Garden; home of Matt-the-Fabulous-Bartender, delicious regional Mexican cuisine and super cool and slightly wacky “Dia de Los Muertos” decor.
Saturday we invited friends Mike, Derenda, Susan, Dana, Tara and Derrik (and his sweet puppy, Skyy) over for BBQ and movies on the front porch. We had a wonderful meal and a great time relaxing and hanging out with everyone.
Sunday we were invited to a giant 3-house street party and BBQ over in Buckhead, hosted by our good friends, Randall and Anne (who throw legendary parties).
Everybody brought a dish and a beverage contribution, so there was an abundant supply of really spectacular food, as well as brats and sausages from the grill, courtesy of Randall and his TEAM ‘Q.
And for me, the cherry on top: I knew a guy in the band and got asked to come up and sing back up vocals. It was awesome. I want to quit my job now, run away from home and join the band. 🙂
Monday, we wrapped up the holiday with Brunch at Parish, in Inman Park, and a quick saunter down the Beltline, which my parents had never seen.
and as a very special treat, some actual artists!
So, a very happy weekend with lots of wonderful family and friend moments. Thank you, lovely Nerd in the Brain, for letting me share my “happies!”
