In my post where I listed some of the things I miss most about Nigeria, I mentioned that I missed going to little events on weekends and posting them on Mondays here on the blog. Mondays used to be the biggest traffic draws on my blog, and I was quite concerned that moving to Atlanta would indirectly cause a drop in my blog traffic since I wouldn't be attending as many events anymore. It's not like I don't go out at all, but it certainly is not as frequent as before. This weekend was different though. It was my mum's birthday on Saturday and we had a whole weekend of fun!!!
First of all, Cakes is back on this end. He got in late last week, just in time for our weekend celebrations. My Snapchat and Instagram stories were pretty active from Friday up until Sunday (please follow me on Social Media - @BerryDakara). We headed to Marietta Square, about 15/20 minutes away from home. I really want to do a Discover Georgia post on Marietta Square because it's very pretty and quaint, with all kinds of stores, restaurants and galleries around. They also have concerts on the last Friday of every month and since it tied in with my mum's birthday, we decided to go. WE HAD FUN!!!
I really like this dress. I got it for just $7 from H&M!
It's been a while since I've had a nice jump shot!
The next concert is a band singing Motown hits and we're definitely heading there again. Hmm, any Atlantans wanna come with? Let me know!
On Saturday we went swimming with the kids and were so tired afterwards, that Cakes and I crashed for an hour and a half. It took me 30 minutes to finally wake up - I was that exhausted.
Later that evening we went to dinner at Bahama Breeze and the food was delicious as always. Bahama Breeze is one of my favorite restaurants where my girls and I go to have appetizers and desserts just because :)
This Ultimate Pineapple drink was AMAZING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
We had chicken wings, beef empanadas (aka meatpie) and coconut shrimp for appetizers.
For our entrees, Cakes and I shared the Seafood Paella and the Trinidad Chicken Curry with Naan Bread. SO YUMMYYYYYYYYYYYYYY!
It was a fun weekend - the start of a stretch of weekend celebrations as all my siblings were born in September. This coming weekend, we'll all be together again and I can't wait!
