The ATL

I guess if one word could describe Saturday, it would have to be overwhelming. Bo and I spent the day in Atlanta. I love to visit Atlanta for the day or weekend, but when I leave there I'm glad I don't live there. I am way more small town than that. First, we went to see Dave Ramsey live. Bo and I have already taken Financial Peace University a couple of years ago. This was a refresher course for us.
Second, we stopped at IKEA. Neither Bo nor I knew exactly what to expect when we went there. So many people in the blog world talk about IKEA so I had to go and see what all the fuss was about. All I can say is WOW! After I left there I felt like my sensors were overloaded.
Next stop The Varsity -" What ya have? What ya have?" When in Atlanta you must eat at the varsity. But having them yell "What ya have?" makes me kind of nervous, but there chili cheese burger and onion rings are Awesome!
Then on the way back my car turned over 100,000 miles. All those miles and so many memorise. Here's to my car going another 1000,000 miles. Bo was so sweet he actually pulled of the interstate on to an exit so that I could get this picture.

I know what you mean about Ikea! They have such great stuff, but it can be overwhelming. I like to look through the catalog before I go, and have something in mind that I want. That's great about the financial peace seminar, too. Sounds like you had a great weekend. :)

Aww man, I wish we had a Ikea nearby. I was drooling over some stuff last week on their website LOL. But I have heard it's pretty large so it's overwhelming.

Oh I love Ikea! We went last week and had to restrain ourselves to keep from buying stuff. We always come out spending at least $100 when we go. It's just so hard to resist all the fun colors and patterns.

IKEA is a time trap, I'm convinced. but fun. and yes, overstimulating, for sure.
