We decided on the Buckhead area of Atlanta. I booked a 2 bedroom/2 bath suite at the Holiday Inn Express which was no Ritz but a very good value and had a living room/kitchen area. I thought it was just fine for our puposes. I decorated the suite with some fun bachelorette decor!
There were bead necklaces for the girls attending to wear.
All the girls arrived around 5pm or so to get ready to go out for dinner. My sister picked one of those family run dirt cheap mexican places.... a girl after my own heart!
Here we all are at El Azteca. Remembering back to my spanish class days I was pretty sure it should be La Azteca but may be I have spent too much time away from spanish... anyway.... the fajita quesadilla is delish.
Then we went back to the hotel for a bit where we presented my sister with a gift. A RECIPE SCRAPBOOK! I'll do a seperate post on that baby. Then we made sure we were all ready to go out to a few bars.
I had looked these up ahead of time and knew we were within 1/2 mile of a couple of bars... Moondogs, Peachtree Tavern (you won't get out of Atlanta without running across something named Peachtree), and some other place. My plan was for us to walk to the bars but Hotlanta was not so hot and was rather cool and rainy so I was the driver. I parked us at the Trader Joes (grocery store right near the bars) for $10 but there was no cover charge at the bars at least.
The girls had a great time at the bars... we pretty much spent the whole time at Moondogs dancing and such and the music was like top hits... great for getting your dance on for hours!
Everyone made it back in one piece and only 1 person fell down in the bar but who's counting? So I consider that a SUCCESS!
Then on my drive back to Charlotte the next day, I stopped in Greenville to see baby Taylor! My friend Brooke H. had a baby girl in December and I had yet to see her new little family. I previously posted about her homemade baby gift.

Taylor had gotten so big and it was so fun to see her making faces and taking in her surroundings. I can't wait to visit them again and see her grow!
