Sunday Breakfast & My Perfect Weekend

This morning hubby and I slept in a bit which was nice because he's been attending a conference in Atlanta for the last few days (translated into our alarm was set for 6:00 a.m. on Saturday morning, too...ugh). I made quick and easy omelets for breakfast. Mine was filled with sauteed red bell peppers, onions and multi-colored baby tomatoes along with Cabot's Vermont White Cheddar Cheese. I served it with chicken sausage patties. I snapped a quick photo below.

Since hubby was tied up until late in the evening the last several nights, I took advantage of some one-on-one time with my 3 kids. On Friday night, my daughter and I enjoyed some shopping and dinner out at Turkish Kitchen near the Mall of Georgia. I enjoyed Char-grilled Chicken Shishkebab and she had a flatbread pizza. On Saturday, I spent the entire day with my youngest son in Midtown Atlanta. We had lunch at Fresh To Order where I enjoyed Fire Grilled Chicken, Salad & Grilled Veggies. We shopped at the new Ponce City Market (where I got to visit the new huge Williams Sonoma); we had coffee at Dancing Goats Coffee Bar; walked the Atlanta BeltLine; shopped at Whole Foods...it was the perfect day! This evening my oldest son is coming for dinner and I will get some one on one time with him and cook him a nice dinner (he always prefers home cooking to eating out). This has been the best weekend ever..."I've found that it's the little things that really are the biggest things." I snapped a few photos of my weekend adventures below. Enjoy!

That Omlet! Wow, looks so tempting! Sounds like a great weekend in spite of the early start on Saturday. Thanks for sharing.

We are only about 40 miles north of Atlanta and we have never heard of the Atlanta BeltLine.

Hi Anonymous,

Yes I am lucky to have them all nearby...but getting one-on-one time with each of them in the same weekend rarely happens believe it or not.

Hi Charlotte,

Since both of my sons live in Midtown, I hear about it all the time. They bike on it, run on it, etc. It was absolutely packed with people, families, bikes, etc. when I went yesterday. Here is the link to their site if you are interested in checking it out. :-) http://beltline.org/
