NEW CUP!

Pin It Brice didn't make it home from golfing until around 7:30 Friday night so only caught the last couple of innings of the game. It was still fun to stroll over in the nice weather after dinner. We've been enjoying some of these evenings sort of pretending it's summer since we have the time but it's not as muggy or buggy.

We had heard from Brice's aunt that they were in town, but after talking to her Saturday morning a visit wasn't in the cards. We just headed out for our meeting with ProMove to look at apartments. They gave us information cards about more than thirty places and then assembled it into this portfolio we can look at online. No particular place jumped out as completely perfect, but there some nice options. After a nice lunch at Subway we drove around in search of The Dump, which is warehouse that almost looks like IKEA from the outside (but without all the floors) and sells damaged furniture. Nothing really jumped out at us there either.

After a long nap and making pizza, we headed out to RiRa to see a cover band called The Commitaphobes. It was fun, not quite as cool interior as Charlotte's but smoke free. They didn't start until 11 so it was a late night so we slept in and went to chuch at noon.

A few weeks ago, our RA (who lives directly across the hall) asked me to play Alice for an un-birthday party they were throwing for the kids here. I hadn't seen Alice in Wonderland since I was about five or six, so I watched the Youtube clip of that scene. While I know most people say Lewis Carroll was on drugs while he wrote the book, I think the writers of the Disney movie would have had to be as well. (I recommend watching it though, it's so much better than I remember.)

I think the kids had a great time and I joined the Mad Hatter, the Red Queen, and the White Rabbit for picture-taking. We'll post a couple shots Brice got of me with the kids. It was nice to have a reason to drop by since most of the events are for people with kids and we'd normally have just watched from the window.

After my popularity died out, we took the MARTA out to the Sweetwater festival. I spent three dollars for a guy to guess my age within two years (naturally, I thought I had this) and he guessed twenty-four! Brice and I decided he must have overheard me say "here, take my rings". It was my first trip on the MARTA so that was the highlight for me.

This morning we got an early start and went up to Stone Mountain. The 1.3 mile hike up was a bit more than I had counted on, so we nixed the 5 mile loop around the mountain and just enjoyed our picnic and watched a couple videos about the Civil War and the carving process. We both really enjoyed the (self-made) long weekend and I'll be working this one.
