Blog Dates and Weekends!

Geez, it's been a long time since I've had a first "date," and I don't think I've ever met someone online . . . I got married before that was even a thing.  So I was pretty excited this past Friday when I had a blog "date" with one of my favorite bloggers!  Amy at Crazy Wise Woman and I have been chatting for what seems like forever and finally got a chance to meet!
Hotlanta is huge, and we live about an hour from each other so we met in the middle at a cute little restaurant called the Fickle Pickle. 
Although all bloggers are on some sort of diet, we couldn't resist the fried pickles!  They were super tasty!
We shared a couple of other entrees and while it was nice, I wouldn't go there again . . . at least not in the winter because we froze our toes off and ended up putting our coats back on half way. 

The best part was definitely the company!  I absolutely loved hanging out with Amy and wished we lived closer!  We seem to have a lot in common, the least of which is our love for yummy food and cocktails!  We are both moms in our 40's with three kids of similar ages.  I adore her sense of humor and sarcastic style!  I read her blog faithfully and am sad when she doesn't post.  I hope we can meet up again soon for a concert or cocktail . . . I'm ready when you are Amy! 

Friday night was super low key!  While Getzy was private jetting it back from business on the west coast, I was scrambling to get my boys ready to go camping in the freezing temperatures this weekend!  It's definitely my job to freak out and their job to tell me they got it!  And with fearless leaders such as these guys, clearly my boys are in great hands! 
Several awesome dads sent my pictures from the weekend!  The boys had a great time and Providence Canyon was beautiful! 
Saturday morning the Princess and I had to work a Girl Scout cookie booth.  I had some great moms to visit with while the girls hocked their wares!  It's pretty hard to resist these little cookies!
In the afternoon Amanda attended her very first jump clinic at the barn!  The was no actual jumping involved . . . they started with the basics of turns to line up your horse.  She did get to go in the big ring so that was pretty exciting . . . as far as horsing goes anyway!  And clearly she's the cutest on in pink!
Since she was an only child for the night, she got to pick where we went for dinner!  She was in need of some chips and cheese so we went to a new Mexican restaurant in our area!  We even sprung for her favorite . . . a virgin strawberry daiquiri!     
And oh the emotions of when the cup is empty and one is all you get!  I feel you girl!  I opted for the grande because duh.
Sunday brought about World Thinking Day for the Girl Scouts.  It's a sweet little event to celebrate Girl Scouting around the world.  My troop chose Australia as their country of choice!  Makes me think of Kristen at See You in A Porridge . . . she's an adorable Aussie lady living in the US!
And because it's cute . . . I'll leave you with this little bit of Australia!  Good day mate!
