Georgia Weekend Recap!

Well, I was an unprepared blogger last week and didn't set up any guest posts. Oops. We went to visit my husband's extended family in Rome, Georgia. I am still envying their weather which was in the 70s. We had such a fun and eventful weekend!

Friday we spent at the Coke museum, where you weren't allowed to take very many pictures, hence why there are none on here. Then we headed to the Atlanta aquarium, where my husband got to swim with whale sharks in the tank! 

The first picture is of my husband his cousin getting prepped to go in. The tank has 4 whale sharks, measuring 20 - 30 feet long, and several giant manta rays 14 feet wide, and then other types of fish and black tipped sharks. These are the best pictures I was able to take through 2 feet of acrylic!

Don't worry, we saw all the other animals in the aquarium too - can you tell I love sea animals? I seriously wanted to take the sea otters home with me!

His family also surprised me with a huge (and delicious) birthday cake at dinner for my 26th birthday, which was on Sunday.

On Saturday we went to a craft fair in Alabama, where I got a some great stuff for Christmas! I wanted to bring home more, but I doubt we would have had room.

Sunday was spent at a baby shower and going out for pizza, which is my favorite! I really can't wait to go back and visit all the little shops we didn't have time for. 

We didn't leave without paying Ollie's dog cousins a visit too! Phoebe just makes me want to take her home shes such a cuddler!

What was the highlight of your weekend?


  1. What a fun trip!! Umm those sharks are huge, even if they aren't mean I still don't think I want to get in the water with something that big! Those otters are adorable! Happy late birthday girl!!
