Flip and Eclipse

I have finally seen Eclipse and let me tell you it was awesome! I wish I had a better word to use than awesome, but at the moment I can't find one.

The night started off with dinner at FLIP, it's a burger joint in town owned by Top Chef's Richard Blaze. I was really excited about trying their food, but was unfortunately quite disappointed. Perhaps I had too great of expectations. The restaurant was really cute and trendy, although being super loud. Thank goodness we didn't sit inside because I think I literally would have had to yell across the table to talk to my friends. That being said.. I ordered the shrimp po'boyger with a side Caesar salad and to drink a Nutella and Marshmallow shake. Lets start with the good. The salad was very good, although I'm still not quite sure why they had a 1/4 oz of saffron piled on top. I like saffron as much as the next person, but it just seemed expensive (on there end) and unnecessary. The shrimp burger was a little too bland and the roll had so much of the ailoi on it my bun was very soggy, making it very difficult to eat. I tried one of my friends French Fries, they fry everything in duck fat so I thought they would be really good and crispy. They were not bad, but not was I was expecting, again soggy. But the shake was sooo disappointing. It was not really thick or cool, the flavor was nice and rich, but I want a shake that is to thick its hard to suck through a straw. I will say that the toasted marshmallows on top were a nice touch. I think I would have been happier with a burger from 5 guys and a milkshake from Steak and Shake.

But after that bummer of a meal..we went to Atlantic station for ECLIPSE. It was so good. It really puts the two previous movies to shame. Based on the trailer I thought it would be all action and no romance, and I couldn't have been more mistaken. It was Edward and Jacob at their best, and most of all Hilarious. I was enthralled the whole time, especially when Jacob was on screen. (TEAM JACOB)! If you haven't seen it yet, its a must see movie this summer. Go for it!

1st is the worst.. 28,801 is the best

Happy 4th of July Everyone!

Well this is the second year in a row I have ran/jogged/walked the Peachtree Road Race. While it is insanely hot and humid in Atlanta, it was still a good time. I didn't come in first place this year, but I did manage to beat my time from last year. At the end of the day everyone gets the same prize, a lovely T-Shirt!

I hope to see you all out there next year!

Sleepless in Seattle

This year my family went on a cruise from Seattle to Alaska and Canada. This is Part 1 of my trip. I'm not sure how many parts there will be, but it may be a few;), so stay tuned.

So we began our trip in Seattle. It was really exciting to see the Space Needle, we went to the top to get a good view of the city. I didn't get to see Dr. Shepard or McSteamy but it was still fun to see the city. They whole time I was there all I could think of was how cold and rainy it was and how I could see why it would be the perfect place for Edward Cullen to live. LOL.

Here are a few pictures.

Unquestionably our Country's Greatest Needle.

Next stop, Juneau Alaska.
