this past weekend i took a little mini vacation. my mom really wanted to go to a braves game, so we went! i took my friend jenna, and my mom's friend debbie came and brought her daughter and her friend.

we left friday after lunch and were going to be cutting it pretty close getting to the game. we ended up being a little early, so we stopped at the hotel first (we all shared a room. yes, 6 girls in 1 room. it really wasn't bad though).

we left the hotel about 30 minutes before the game started. i took my camera so i could take some pictures along the way and at the game.

we rode marta to the game. it took a little longer than we expected.

we were an hour late to the game. it wasn't a very big deal though because the braves were losing. jenna and i wanted to get t-shirts, but we didn't find any we liked. we wasted a little time looking for those. we grabbed some expensive ballpark food and headed up to our seats.

we had fun hanging out and watching the game. jenna and i even shared some cotton candy :)

it rained a little towards the end of the game, but we were able to move up a little and be covered so we didn't get wet. it stopped by the time the game ended, so we got lucky!

the next day we planned on shopping all day long, and we did just that. we went to 3 malls and to ikea. debbie's daughter and her friend went to six flags for the day, so there were just 4 of us shopping.

the hotel we stayed at is the one my dad and i always stayed at when we went to atlanta for the 4th of july, so i kind of knew were things were. there were 2 malls really close to the hotel, so we went to those first.

jenna and i made a list of a few places we wanted go to that we don't have around us (nordstrom, h&m, and forever21). we also went to urban outfitters and gap. and i got a really cute pair of boots from steve madden (i've been looking for boots for the longest time). h&m was definitely the best stop. i went to one in chicago a while ago, and i was really excited to go back.

we hit up the varsity for dinner and then we headed home.

it was a very successful trip, and we were all worn out when we got home. we didn't get home until 1am. i missed addison a lot while we were gone. i think it was the longest i have been away from her. and i was gone less than 2 days. she had a lot of fun while i was away though. she stayed with my dad friday night and all day saturday. they had fun playing and bonding :)

we may start making a trip to atlanta every year. and addison can start going with us too!
