Weekends spent at home (in Atlanta) with family are some of my favorites.  The pampering, the food, the lack of responsibility (even if only for a few days)…I love it all!  And this past weekend was no different.

I flew into Atlanta on Wednesday evening, worked from home on Thursday, took Friday off, and then spent my last night at Vishnu’s house.  While it was a super quick trip, I feel like I did a lot.

First of all (and most importantly), I ate a lot of my mom’s delicious food.  Nothing like momma’s home cooking.

I got a much needed pedicure.  MUCH NEEDED.

My mom and I went shopping and did some damage at the Banana Republic Factory Outlet.  I also bought a cute pair of booties at Target.

I spent good quality time with my parents.  They’re likely not going to like that I posted this picture, but I love it so much.  Cuties!

I played with my BIL’s girlfriend’s dog…Little Bum Bums (that’s her name!).  You guys, I’m not a dog person at all, but this little thing stole my heart when I first met her a couple of years ago and still has a strong grip on it.  She’s THE cutest!  In fact, whenever we spend time with her, I’m almost tempted to get one for myself.  Almost.

We spent time at Vishnu’s house with his family – talking, eating, laughing, and planning our trip to HAWAII!!!!  It’s official…tickets are booked!  So. Freaking. Excited.  More to come!

And now it’s Monday, and we’re back to reality!  Here’s to a good week ahead. 🙂
