Welcome to Atlanta

[where tha playas play.. 
... and we ride on them thangs like errr day..]

Not like that's been in my head since we left for the ATL Thursday night or anything.
So, this weekend, I totally partied like it was my birthday. Except, it wasn't. It was my BFF Allis! And man did we celebrate. Yall, I haven't drank like that since college. I'm talking one day I didn't wake up until 4pm. My body was cussing me out. 

But it's cool because I have never laughed so hard in my life. The whole weekend was one big laugh fit. I loved Alli's roomies. She lives with her boyfriend and a couple other guys (a few I've met and a few I haven't) but we all clicked so well and had the most amazing time. The six pack I got definitely cancelled out the six pack I drank so it's all good.

Alli's sweet puppy Lola. Alli was my college roomie and Lola stayed with us for around a year so we we're reunited [and it felt so goooood....] I got puppy snuggles all weekend long!
We may or may not (definitely, may.) tried on some old wedding dresses from wayyy before our time. This house belongs to Alli's boyfriends grandmother so it's full of quite the antiques. My wedding dress had rips all in so sorry, no pictures there. Let's just say somebody had a little bit-o-fun on their honeymoon. 
Mimosa time with the birthday girl.. at approximately 7pm at night. We had our days and nights so mixed up so this was completely normal. By the way- Cupcake Prosecco makes theeee best mimosas ever.
Three hours later we were drinking coors light out of champagne glasses with "Turtles Don't Do Drugs" Ninja Turtle t's on.. tooootally normal. 
and so there's that.. 
The boys had a photo shoot.. these are only 4 of the 400 they took.. 
and so there's that...
 We took a lot of really gross grainy iphone pics.. 
and so there's that...
If you don't get the "and so there's that.." reference: RUN, don't walk, to your nearest television set and watch "Girls" on HBO right now! I was introduced this weekend and I am seriously obsessed. Most hilarious show ever.

Moving on..

The one day we actually made it out of the house to the city (which is like 10 min from their house- BALLIN!) We went to The Sun Dial, which is located inside the Westin hotel. It's one of (if not the) highest point in Atlanta. It's really neat because there is a restaurant inside that spins as you eat so you can get an entire 360 degree view of the entire city. The elevator going up is also glass so you can see everything but I wouldn't recommend it if you have a queasy stomach. 
I thought I'd sum it up with the very first picture we took on our trip: a big ol slumber party with my two best friends andddd the very last picture we took on the trip: driving home on Sunday and miraculously enough wearing my Sunday socks on the right day. Five year old in thaaa hizzouse!
A big thank you to John for driving and putting up with me and my antics for hours on end, Alli & all the boys for hosting us and being so damn wonderful, and most of all Alli for being born, insisting her birthday last the entirety of the weekend, and being the bestest friend I could ever ask for. 

Cheers to already planning the next trip!
