Jason’s parents came to visit yesterday. They live in South Carolina, about two hours away. We hung out at home for a little bit, before heading out to one of my favorite stores, Big Peach Running Company. Everyone but me was in the market for new shoes and they found them.
Although, I didn’t get any shoes, I did get a new shirt. Thanks Debbie and Tim!
After shoe shopping, we went to Old Navy and then to our final dinner destination, 5 Seasons Brewery. They had a watermelon wheat beer that I just had to try. It was really good. Definitely not too sweet, just a hint of watermelon flavor. I don’t really drink a lot of beer, I prefer wine, but I do like a nice wheat beer on occasion. For my meal, I had the portobello mushroom sandwich and sweet potato fries. The highlight of the meal, however, was this great cayenne, cinnamon cream that came as a dipping sauce for my fries. It tasted like spicy cinammony whipped cream (which I guess it was) and I could have eaten a bowl of it for my entree.
My mother-in-law’s birthday was earlier in the week and our original plan was to go to a cupcake place by our house. However, shopping took longer than we’d anticipated and we weren’t done with dinner until 8:45 and the cupcake place (25 minutes away) closed at 9. Fortunately, with a little iphone help, we realized that another place that sold desserts, West Egg Cafe, was like two minutes down the road and open until 10. We got a fun mix of different things to try – caramel cake, cookie dough brownie, lemon almond macaron, homemade pop-tart and a peach turnover. I tried them all and I think my favorite was either the cookie dough brownie or the peach turnover.
Now we’re off to test out our new running shoes and shirt at the gym because my shirt speaks the truth, the humidity is insane right now in Atlanta.
