Today has been pretty rad so far and I am taking advantage of Doug taking an early evening nap to actually sit down and stop moving. We woke up pretty early, grabbed some coffee and headed south east into Georgia for some serious estate sale shopping. We haven't been junking as much as normal, for no reason in particular, except that it's been go-go-go work-work-work lifestyle lately. However, we made a really solid work plan for the next few weeks, and before we go strong, we thought we would take a day to ourselves and actually leave the house. We visited some awesome estate sales, spent too much money, drove all over Chattanooga and northern Georgia, and all before Lunch. Around lunch time, we hit it back to the city and met up with our pals Rae and Travis at Sluggo's North for lunch.
Sweet baby Jesus, it was good. We were starving, and had planned on getting a burger on the way, but we're late, as usual, so we just hauled ass to get there and eat. The food was incredible, the customer service was incredible. Ashley, one of the owners, had to have been the nicest he could possibly be! Funny story, when Doug was a teenager, he used to go to punk rock shows at Sluggo's in Pensacola. It was a venue, and the owners moved up to Chattanooga and opened up another venue with a 100% vegan cafe.
I got the lentil burger (I think, or mushroom) patty melt. Whatever it was made of, it was delicious. There is a lot of mustard on it, which I should have known, so next time I'll ask for no mustard, but even that didn't stop picky little me from eating every single bite. And a giant salad was perfect for this semi-hot, windy day in Tennessee. Doug got the BBQ Sub, Rae and Travis both got the Club. I don't know why, but I keep wanting to say that everyone got a BLT. Not true. Subs and clubs. Doug also got the sweet potato mash, and I think I ate half of that too.
And, because it seemed only appropriate, we all got dessert. Coconut cream pie! Coconut cream pie that I can eat!! Coconut cream pie with no milk in it! It was top notch. I ate every single bite of that too. No doubt. And not to mention that our lunch was amazing, we had some pretty awesome lunch dates to share it with. I can be super awkward in real life. Especially because I know all of you think i am hilariously awesome, so I have a lot to live up to (joking.....) But meeting Rae was really rad and maybe it's the southern in them, but there wasn't a single weird quiet moment the entire time.
After lunch, Doug gave Travis a tour of the van, and we attempted to introduce our dogs. I haven't been leaving Ollie at home because of his eye infection, so he just goes everywhere with us, and Charlie the lump tags along too. Ollie, of course, the oaf that he is scared the bujesus out of little Priscilla so he had to go back into the van to sit in the drivers seat and sulk. Charlie, the grumpiest dog alive tried to act tough, but really he just wanted to be cuddled. Here;s proof of our awesome dog-momness.
I like meeting other extreme dog owners. I feel less crazy. Really. Y'all are awesome. On the way home, Doug told Ollie "We're the only parents you'll ever have, so you better stop acting like a butthole so we don't disown you." I laughed until I cried. Did I mention Ollie is being the worst dog ever right now. I don't know what his deal is. I think he has too much energy or something since he doesnt have a big yard to run around in, but he isn't listening, he growled/snapped at Doug last night when they were playing, and has been acting generally like a disgruntled teenager. Life of a dog mom...haha.
Anyways, I'm going to wake Doug up so we can go meet up with some friends to get dinner. Busy day off. Then back to work tonight.
How was your weekend so far? Did you do anything totally awesome? Tell me about it!
