Oh my goodness... the hardest part about going 2 weeks between blogs is I have to think so hard as to what I did the week before!! I have been sitting here for about 30 minutes trying to get my thoughts together as to what all I did!!
On Mondays, Tuesdays, and Wednesdays I have a pretty good routine going. Monday is spent in dance class and with my small group. Tuesdays I go to Aiko with Chris and the past two weeks we met up with Micah and Tory as well as a few other people. The normal Wednesday routine is Mako's and Tongue & Groove.
Last Friday I went out with Carrie to Moondogs and Hole in the Wall. For a while that was the place we were hanging out but we hadn't been there in about two months. It was definitely interesting because there were a ton of Santa Clauses there and a lot of them wanted to talk with Carrie and me. It was very funny being surrounded by men in red suits!!
Last Saturday after work I met up with Chris and Daniel to go out to Moondogs and then Mako's. Some of Daniel's friends came out with us as well. One of his friends was Brooke. We were both quite tired that night so instead of dancing and her and I had a lot of fun hanging out and chatting.
On Sunday Victor got us tickets from a friend, Alex, to a Thrashers hockey game so he, Carrie, Victor (friend of my friend Victor - the same guy that is in the birthday pictures from Victor's birthday - confusing right :) ) and I met up with Alex and a friend of his at the Phillip's Arena. Alex works at the CNN Center which is a part of Phillip's Arena and he is able to get tickets to any game that he wants to. We had really good seats behind the goal. There was a lot of good fights and the game went to a shoot out in overtime. We had a lot of fun!!
This past week I have taken off from work. I had extra days and if I don't take them before the end of the year I lose them. So, Tuesday afternoon I went with my friend Brian to the new aquarium that was built here in Atlanta. The aquarium is absolutely beautiful!! It was a ton of fun to see all of the different fish from around the world. I was much more impressed than I thought I would have been!!
Wednesday this week was a little different than my normal. Chris came over and I made us some dinner and then we watched Nip/Tuck. I taped it using my DVR from the night before which is the best because I can fast forward the commercials!! It was the first time that I had watched the show but I Chris had watched it a few times before so he was able to explain the show to me... I am now hooked! After dinner we met up with Micah at Fox Sports Grill in then new Atlantic Station. Micah works there so we met up with him as he finished work and then he and Chris played pool until Tory showed up and then we went to our usual spots. Afterwards we went to a diner on 10th Street which ended up being quite interesting and a TON of drama. Chris's friend Rachel and her friend Celeste came with us and their personalities and Tory's personality collided. Their 'discussion' became so heated that all of the diner's staff were watching and at one point Micah and I ended up walking away from the table.
Thursday night Chris, Micah and I went to a Churchill Grounds, a jazz club right next to the Fox Theater. I LOVED IT!!! I will definitely go back there again! I have been waiting to go to a jazz club since I moved down. This one is in a beautiful old bar and the music was fabulous! Micah used to work there and says that some of the best jazz musicians go thru there. I can't wait to go back! After the jazz club we ended up back at Mako's. Chris and Micah know a lot of the people that work there so we always end up talking with everyone so now I am getting to know all the people that work there too!
On Friday Carrie and I went to a bar I hadn't been to before, East Andrews. The crowd here is a little more up scale than the places that I normally go but it was a refreshing change. I got a little more dressed up than usual and we had a blast!! We danced and I met someone who was from the Detroit area and had just moved down. He had gone to Central Michigan and had been to Bay City a few times so that was interesting. I also met a guy who could really dance so I had a lot of fun twirling around the dance floor with him!
On Saturday I took Carrie to Compound. She hadn't been there before and I hadn't been there in about five months. It is rated as the best night club in Atlanta and it was a lot of fun. Once again we met someone from Michigan... this guy was from Flint. He and Carrie hit it off pretty well and she spent most of the night talking with him. I had fun talking and dancing with the rest of his friend!! BUT, the most interesting part of the night was who else was there... Jesse Metcalf !!! I loved him when he played Miguel on the soap opera Passions but he is best know as the gardener on Desperate Housewives. And, to me he is just a beautiful in person as on TV!! Terrell Owens and his group was in the club as well and he said hi to me... it was cute!
Since I had all the time off I have been able to get some Christmas shopping in as well as run some errands and managed to find a little bit of time to relax! Today I am doing laundry at Victor's house. The next few days will be spend getting ready for my parents and brother to come into town!! I am very excited and can't wait to see them. They should be in sometime early Wednesday morning.
