Thanksgiving Travels to Atlanta for a Holiday Weekend

Hello friends and welcome to my blog! 
I wanted to share a couple of pictures from our recent trip to Atlanta to visit our daughter. This was our first time to spend Thanksgiving in Atlanta. We had dinner at the Livingston which was a nice treat. 


I love the picture above of Eddie and Dallas that I snapped as they were enjoying time on the bench while waiting for our car to be brought around after dinner. The weather was perfect and the temperature was in the high 60's. 

The only problem was Trey had to stay back at the apartment because he came down with a terrible cold. We made sure we brought him something special back to enjoy in bed. 


Above is a picture of myself and Eddie just as we were about to go inside for dinner. This was my first time this year I have had the chance to wear tights and boots! It was finally cold enough to wear them. 


The dessert station was very pretty and I had to take a picture to share with you. I love how they had it all set up in the corner with the beautiful chandelier. It was like liquid gold dripping from the ceiling. 



We also celebrated Eddie's birthday on this trip. Dallas came up with a great idea to wrap all of his gifts and then had me wrap all of those in this very large box. It was fun to watch him unwrap everything which you can see below in the video I put together and shared on my Youtube channel. 


The next day Dallas and I attended a class on how to make candles at CandleFish. It was a lot of fun and something great to do as a girls day out! You could also get several of your friends together and make an event out of it. 



Here we are after we put our aprons on and were getting ready to take out seats. Dallas had the opportunity to take this class for two other events so it was great to have her be able to give me helpful tips along the way. She loves this type of activity and she is great at it. 


Here we are in the candle library with over 100 scent combinations. Each scent has a primary family and then you mix the primary with other scents. Very educational and full of great information. 


As you can see below we were well on our way to creating our candles. 




We had such a great time picking out the different scents that we liked. I love the idea that none of their items have names and they only go by numbers. This allows your brain to focus on the details of the scent and not what you think you might not like because of the name.


I love that so many people ask if we are sisters! I will absolutely take that as a compliment. 




It was great to have Dallas drive us around in her new car. I was so excited to see it for the first time on this visit. She did a great job picking it out and comparing it to other models to make sure it was a great value. 


Come along for the fun in this great video I put together of our candle making adventure. Also be sure to subscribe because there is so much more to come. Vlogmas is well underway I know you will love it!
