Hello Friends!

It feels like since I made the decision to blog once a week that I haven’t blogged at all. This is mostly due to a sinus infection that stuck around for two weeks. Yuck! I’m happy to say that I’m on my last days of my antibiotic and doing better. I think some of my pain now is due to the early pollen count. Thank you allergies! :/ Anyway, it’s good to be back and I have plenty of things to share!

Last month, I visited my friend, Whit for a weekend in Atlanta! It was so fun! My first night there we ordered Chinese for dinner. (If you are fighting a cold, I highly suggest ordering some wonton soup. It’s perfect for the sore throat and pained sinuses!) We watched SNL skits and Pineapple Express because that movie is ridiculous!

The next morning,  we visited the Etowah Indian Mounds and had quite a climb up to this view!

It was hella cold though. We were all bundled up with hoods and hats. What the mess? This is Georgia, people!

Donkeys eat pine cones?!

On our walk back from the mounds, we saw two donkeys beyond a fence of a nearby farmer. We (of course!) had to stop to see if they were tame and chat with them. 😉

After the mounds, we learned about a nearby Science Center and decided to check it out. We headed there and stopped by an awesome Greek Cafe on our way.  If you are ever in Cartersville, definitely check out Cartersville Cafe! It’s conveniently located right next to the Tellus Science Musuem. 🙂

This exhibit had a Tim Burton vibe, maybe that’s where he gets his inspiration…?

That evening we went to see Hidden Figures. I’m pretty sure most of you have heard about this book/movie. All I can say is that I can’t remember the last time I went to the theater and had zero regrets about paying for a movie ticket. It’s worth so much more than that. This is a piece of history that does not get the attention it deserves. What these women did is so important for science, our country, and this world. I’m so glad I had the opportunity to see it and I recommend everyone go out and see it now if you haven’t already! 😉

The next day, I met back up with my guys and we celebrated my niece, Miya’s fourth birthday party at Chuck E. Cheese. It was fun playing games and spending time with our GA family.

Birthday girl!

John vs. The Raging Ape

After the party, we joined my mom, Aunt Brandi, Aunt Jessica, Uncle Ty-Ty, and Karson for a late lunch at Cheddars. After Cheddars, we visited with the Smith family and celebrated Levi turning 1. All our babies are growing up! I’m so thankful for family and good friends. It’s never long enough! <3

I’ve read 3 books for the Read Harder Challenge.

(Below you can click on the categories and see which books I read for each one!)

Read a book about sports.

Read an all-ages comic.

Read a superhero comic with a female lead.

I’m currently reading The Girls and Harry Potter and The Order of the Phoenix for read a debut novel and read a fantasy novel. I’m well on my way to completing this challenge! 😉

The other goals I had last month made a slight shift due to unforeseen circumstances. So my one and only goal this month will be to complete sorting and donating my clothes for my capsule wardrobe. (More on that later!)

I hope you all have a wonderful weekend! Be safe out there! Share book recommendations and any other comments below!

<3 Anna
