July Fun

Tuesday, July 15th, 2014

Good Morning Darlings!

How has the summer been treating you? I can’t believe it’s already mid-July – how can that be?

I thought we could catch up by sharing our summer fun photos so far.  I would love it if you shared yours with me, too!

Oooh! Woody Harrelson was spotted on one of Atlanta Movie Tours outings! How fun is that?

Atlanta Movie Tours has been taking up my time and I apologize for not making time for us to get together. But…Woody Harrelson!!

It was so great having our dear friends Rick and Denise visit us for July 4th. It was one wild weekend!

My sweet Eric put together a paella for 40 on the 4th. It was deeeeeeeelicious.

We discovered, Bartaco – which feels like being at the beach in the middle of Atlanta. Check it out.

My new favorite place – Bartaco Atlanta

Jane had a very special birthday and we were so excited to celebrate with her at the Greystone Building at Piedmont Park. Under the stars, at a very posh, catered affair. It was swoony and a perfect way to fete one of the loveliest people on earth.

 

Those are the highlights of July so far – how has your summer been?  I would love to hear what you’ve been up to!

xoxo, Patti

Happy Independence Day!

Good Morning Darlings!

Here in Atlanta we are going to see torrential rain for July 4th. Will that stop the party?

Heck no!! We will be at our dear friend, Melanie’s house. It is going to be a HAPPENING. I can’t wait!

I am making double bacon potato salad. If some bacon is good, more is better, right?

What are you up to? I am crushing on these fun photos:

Cupcakes, icing, and well, more cupcakes!

Apparently, I’m on an icing kick.

I’m not even sure what these are, but I need them in my life.

And I HAVE TO HAVE everything on this sweet website:

Love love love

I wish you and your loved ones a fabulous and safe July 4th. Leave a comment and let me know what you are up to!!

xoxo, Patti

July 4th Weekend-Part Two

Wednesday, July 7th, 2010

Good Morning, Darlings!

On day one, after spending the afternoon on the Crush Pad with Doug, Sharon and Chef Dairen, we drove home to Atlanta where Eric had made dinner reservations at Abbatoir. It was a splendid affair, although no pictures. A couple needs to have some private time, after all.

But on Sunday, we made our favorite baked potato salad and headed over to Jay and Valerie’s house for their fabulous fried chicken, and Curtis’ world famous pulled pork and lots of other goodies. And of course, I brought my camera!

She's A Grand Old Flag, She's A High Flying Flag....

July 4th Weekend-Part One

Tuesday, July 6th, 2010

Good Morning, Darlings!

Isn’t it great to have an extra day off? Since Eric had Monday off we were able to squeeze in some extra fun this weekend. Friday night found us at Farm Burger in Decatur for the yummiest burgers this side of your home grill (actually, better than home burgers). Saturday we decided to go back to Dahlonega and visit our friends Doug and Sharon Paul at Three Sisters Vineyard & Winery for a special treat. We started with the wine pairings – my favorite was their Blood Mountain Red paired with Cheetos! Cheetos! Don’t you love Cheetos? Me, too.

Have No Idea How Doug & Sharon Thought This Up, But It's Great!
