Oh the shopping! What an adventure. Going to the same stores I've always shopped at with a new agenda in mind is quite the challenge. A scavenger hunt if you will. I have been working really hard to find the organic options for the things we would normally purchase. Some are more tough than others. Some taste AWFUL and some are quite delicious. We're still experimenting with flavors and brands, but these are some of my latest finds (Mostly from Target-Archer Farms and Kroger). Here's to our continued success in hunting down flavorful, healthy food options.
A few stops on our birthday celebration tour:
Hudson Grille @ Perimeter Mall - very cool atmosphere, tons of televions, great patio, fantastic menu, reasonable prices. Check it out.
Charlie Mopps (Roswell Road) - if you don't have a favorite pub, this is a good choiec. Laid back atmosphere, large patio, tons of beverage choices, all around great pub environment. There is a huge "regulars" crowd, I would recommend bringing your own crew to hang with.

Once upon a time, in a little town called Carrollton, I had the time of my life!! I was a Delta Delta Delta (yes, a sorority girl) at the University of West Georgia. It was a small school, in a small town, but Greek life was the best. I was fortunate enough to meet and spend time with some of the most amazing people I have had the pleasure to know. We were the same on several levels and very different on others. My college experience at SUWG was absolutely unforgettable.
I can say with all honesty that I never thought of myself as a "sorority girl". Looking back now I still can't believe it sometimes, but I wouldn't change a thing. Some of the men and women I met through the Greek system changed my life. I am forever grateful to them. The list of fun and amazing times we shared there is infinite.
And then there are the times on "the Hall", well for those of you who lived it ... you know. Break-ups, hook-ups, naps, movies, work out videos, rush, video night practice, sing alongs, hall wars, phone calls, engagements, meetings, standards, pre-partying, homecoming, DD assignments, pranks, the call box, dial-a-delta, big-lil sleepovers, community showers, closet raids, primping for Thursday nights out, packing to go home for the weekend, 8:01 parties, "studying", the double-wide bed, door decor, breakfast at noon, shackers and so much more.
The ladies of Tri-Delta have been keeping us updated on the latest Greek Village project at SWUG. I am so excited for the next generation of greek-lifers to have this incredible new addition, but a little sad to think about the hall being no more. Scheduled to open in 2009 this addition to campus will most certainly bring a whole new dimension to life on campus. West Georgia was an unexpected detour for me. I loved it. I will forever be grateful for my time there. I can't wait to visit Carrollton to see how amazing the new village is.

Upon my first glimpse of VP running mate Palin, I immediately spouted "Man, I wish Tina Fey was still on SNL. She would make a killer Palin". Who knew all those who shared my observation would be graced with her return so quickly. This past weekend on SNL ... it happened. Fey vs. Poehler. Palin vs. Clinton. Priceless.
She looks just like her. The accent was amazing. I am certain with the coverage this little clip has already garnered she will be making more cameo appearances in the weeks to come. One can only hope. For now kudos to SNL for seeing a prime opportunity to poke a little fun at our democratic system and the ridiculous lengths "some" will take to purposefully distract from the real issues at hand. Enjoy and happy Monday.

1 - Rebecca Pearcy is the owner & creator of Queen Bee. She started in the corner of her bedroom and has grown this business into a thriving success.
2 - Their designs are fun, functional and friendly to the environment (and animals!). Some of my favorite bags are made from pvc-free faux leather, vinyl and some of her latest work made from recycled banners.
3 - Not that I am looking, but they have great utility bags for parents on the go who don't want to be lugging around a super bland baby bag. Their Chickpea Baby collection is adorable.
I could list a bunch of other reasons, but these are the top 3 for sure. Check them out. I recommend the Truckette bag. It is my most favorite purchase from this past year. I carry anything and everything in it. It is very handy and makes the perfect grab and go bag.
