Recently...Eating and Travel

Wow, it sure has been a while!  I haven't been around the casa much, so I haven't taken much time to write on here.  I've been a little more intentional about keeping up with the teaching blog, but I don't want this one to fall by the wayside.  It is so great to be able to look back and remember what was going on my life at random times.  But anyways...
Like I said, I haven't been at my house much.  Mr. Biz and I have been all over the world (ok, maybe just the southeast) doing all sorts of fun things.  Don't be jealous.  ;]

We went to Birmingham to visit some of our best friends and for Mr. Biz to run the Mercedes-Benz half-marathon (I was only a spectator/cheerleader).  On Saturday we hung out with two of my besties, Clint & Brynn, and then that evening we spent some time with Biz's best friend Jonathan and his girlfriend.  The next morning we left around 6:20 for the marathon and I did my best not to freeze to death (a large non-fat mocha from McD's helped that cause).   He did a great job on the marathon; I love cheering him across the finish line.  Then we had a much deserved brunch at Another Broken Egg Cafe.  Deeeeelicious!  There is a location in Atlanta, so I'm sure we'll visit there again soon!  We both highly recommend it.

The next weekend was an EPIC four day weekend.  Yes, you read that correctly: we had Friday and Monday off of school.  We decided that we needed to live it up while we had time away from work.  Mainly, we decided to go to Steak and Shake at 2:00AM for their happy hour milkshakes.  Did you know that their happy hour is from 2-4AM and PM?  Well, now you do!  We figured what better way to stay young than to go out when all of those crazy college kids are out.  Actually, we were surprised that there were so many people there...come to find out, the bar next door closes at 2, so everyone migrates to Steak and Shake for some milkshakes and burgers.  That also explains the inebriated state of many of the patrons.  We overheard some very interesting conversations.  All in all, it was quite the experience and a fun, atypical thing for us to do.

That Sunday Mr. Biz ran the Locomotive Half-Marathon in Kennesaw, so we took the opportunity to go check out Big Pie in the Sky.  Adam (our favorite TV personality of Man v. Food fame) did the carnivore challenge there and the pizza looked amazing.  We decided to go with our favorite and try their version of a white pizza.  INSANELY GOOD.  There were huge chunks of garlic all over it.  I don't think the picture does it much justice, but we got their smallest size which was still 16" across.  And our plates were pizza trays.  Epic.  If you have a reason to go to Kennesaw you should definitely check it out.

If you can't tell, our goal in life is to become real foodies...which is why we try to find unique and fun places to eat in each city we visit.  Just last night we learned about some places in Athens that we are going to visit.  Over the past couple weeks we also enjoyed some sinful cheesecake from The Cheesecake Factory and got some really good Thai food from a place near Mr. Biz's work.  I never realized how fun it was to try out new places all the time!

This is a very long post, and if you made it to the end, props to you!  I'll probably keep updating ya'll on the places we eat at, and there is a "Good Eats" page currently being edited.  I'll let ya'll know when it goes live.

Happy Sunday!

  1. you speak to my heart with all this food talk. i'm definitely looking into another broken egg cafe, i LOVE breakfast places. i've heard many crazy things about pie in the sky (some friends attempted the pizza eating contest there... ) but we have yet to try it! your garlic-y white pizza sounds amazing.
