American Girl / Atlanta Visit

We intentionally had Chloe's party on a Friday so that we can treat her to a special weekend in Atlanta.  She has been wanting to visit the American Girl store for some time now; so a few months ago we decided that her birthday weekend would be the perfect time to take her!  Atlanta is the closest store to early Saturday morning we headed off!  We got into town around 1pm or so-headed to a hole in the wall Mexican Restaurant {Nuevo Laredo} that is to die for-made a quick trip to the GA Aquarium-then headed to the store for our dinner reservation!  It was such a great weekend.  The Aquarium was hands down the best one I have ever been to.  The tanks were AMAZING!  I would love to go back!  Carter was being somewhat temperamental that afternoon so Blake took him to the Chloe and I got to experience American Girl together.  It was so magical watching her go from doll to doll and looking at all the clothes and accessories.  We ate at the Bistro, her doll, Sage, had her hair done, and we got a few new AG things for her dolls {with her birthday money}!  It was a great weekend!

{as you can see, Sage--the AG doll--went everywhere with us that day}

{Love the sweet pictures of me and my girl.  She was so happy!  When we arrived at the hotel, they rolled out the pink carpet for Chloe.  We did the American Girl Package which included a travel bed, cookies and milk, breakfast for 4 in the morning, a lollipop, and a pink credit card to get a snack in the gift shop!  It was so fun}

The following weekend was my Best Friend's 30th Birthday!  So thankful for Brittnye's friendship!!  She has been through so much with me...and is always there to listen!

We got to spend all day last Saturday together...really, I was keeping her distracted so that her family could plan her surprise party!  We had lunch at the Cheesecake Factory and did some shopping.  That night we all got together to surprise her!
All the girls at the party!

A few other pictures!

Dance has started back up!  Chloe seems pretty excited this year!  She will also be doing Acro and 2 privates with her instructor, Becky, each month! 

Finally, our Picture Day Princess!  I loved this sweet Orient Expressed Dress that she wore for pictures a few weeks ago!
