The Weekend ReviewPosted: August 17, 2009
1. Starbucks with Lori in Calhoun, GA gave me a happy heart. We met halfway between Chattanooga and Atlanta for a much-needed, long-awaited morning of running our mouths. I am so thankful for Lori. We met when we lived in the same city in China for a year, bonded when we traveled in South Korea and Japan together on our way home, and cemented the friendship when we both moved to Atlanta following our time in Asia. She is one of my very favorite people, and I had so much fun catching up with the newly engaged girl! She has been in Guatemala studying Spanish for most of 2009, and is just back, freshly engaged to Andrew (they’ll get married in April 2010, wahoo!), and busy helping out the kids at Children’s Hospital in Atlanta, where she is a child life specialist. She loves the Lord so much, is so honest in her pursuit of him, and did I mention that she has three sisters? Needless to say, we always have something to talk about. I love this girl!
This is us on Mt. Fuji in Japan.
3. Pomosa Party! Fast becoming a Chattanooga tradition, Michael, my friend Julianna and her roommate Sarah hit up the Pomosa (pomosa=mimosa – champagne + Miller High Life) on the roof of an apartment a few blocks away. Good times were had by all. 🙂
4. Gregory Family Reunion at Nocalula Falls outside of Gadsden, AL. Mawmaw made some of her famous fried chicken, so it was a good day.
6. Dinner of tomatoe pie while watching the soon-to-be-canceled NBC series, Merlin. So bad it was (almost) enjoyable. We laughed a lot, anyway. Highlights included teenage Merlin in angst over whether or not to reveal his magical powers to an angry Arthur who hates sorcerers.
