Emory Point

A trip to Emory Point is a great Staycation. It is located across from the CDC in Atlanta.IMG_3205You can park for free during the day in the parking garage and shop or go to restaurants.IMG_3198The General Muir is the most popular restaurant here and while it is good, it usually requires a good wait. There are several other good restaurants, Marlow’s Tavern, Tin Lizzy’s, IMG_3153La Tagliatella, Paradise Biryani Point, Burger Fi (They have an awesome hotdog!), Fresh to Order, Chow Mei Mei. This dish is from La Tagliatella Tagliatella 3this was excellent for lunch and then again for dinner. There were two huge meatballs in there too.

They also have movie nights and special events, oh, and a Farmers Market every IMG_3152Wednesday.

Yesterday, they had Angels Among Us Pet Rescue with a bunch of adoptable dogs, so cute and so sweet.IMG_3164So take a trip over and check it out, let me know what you think!

Angels Among Us – Emory Point

Angels Among Us is an amazing rescue group. They rescue tons of dogs and cats and have amazing volunteers, that help to foster and show up on weekends for these events. IMG_3162You can “Like” them on Facebook and help with donations or fostering or adopting. Let me show you some of the sweet sweet faces…IMG_3155Cute older sweet Itto. IMG_3174This wonderful person fosters so many pups! She is amazing.

 IMG_3179This is a cute sweet little puppy. IMG_3189How about this face? IMG_3165This one kept trying to kiss me while I was just trying to take a photo, sweetie!

This is an amazing organization. They have these every weekend all over the place. If you are even considering adopting, you really should look into them! Please let me know if you have any questions. (They have a lot of great cats and kittens too)

Marietta Art in the Park!

It was a gorgeous Labor Day, so, I headed up to Marietta for a fun Staycation day!IMG_3039I cannot lie, it was very hot. There were a lot of artists. Every kind of art you can imagine. IMG_3030There were lots of fun things for the kids to do too.IMG_3036Do you see the boy on the roof? His mom was so cool, she just said “get down” and to her friend, “he will figure it out.” 

Then, of course, there was the King of Pops, only one vendor this time.IMG_3031The balloon guy was there too.IMG_3049

It was all around the Square in Marietta, very cute area. IMG_3044Lots of cute restaurants and homes in the area. Very close to the train tracks. IMG_3056

I think it would be interesting to explore when there isn’t a festival going on, a great Staycation.  Let me know if there are other things to see in the area! 

AJC Decatur Book Festival, it was crazy!

IMG_3004I have been to a lot of Festivals in Decatur but this was my first Book Festival. It was packed! There were books galore! There were books for everyone, young and old and everyone in between. Oh and you won’t believe who was there.IMG_3018That is right, Spidy was there. There were food trucks and of course The King of Pops, and balloon animals and hats.IMG_3013I wanted to get this posted so you could make it tomorrow.IMG_3011
