Weekend Recap

What a busy week...

Officially done with my first week of classes!  Yay...only 20 more weeks to go until summer break. My first week of classes following a long and relaxing Christmas break, whooped my butt! My sleep schedule is all kinds of messed up. Thanks to work, they've had me on a mixture of 2nd and 3rd shifts. 

Friday afternoon we made the 4-hour road trip to Atlanta to visit my parents for the weekend. I was looking forward to a good nights rest after my busy sleepless week. I ended up staying up late and catching up with my mom after we got in. I went to bed around midnight and woke up Saturday afternoon to see the clock read 1:00pm. Well, I think I caught up on some of my missed Zzz's. I couldn't believe I'd almost slept the day away. We had reservations for dinner that night at Fogo De Chao, so we got dressed up and later headed downtown for dinner. 

Dinner was delicious, as always. The Brazilian meats are cooked and seasoned to perfection, and come straight to your table, fresh off the grill. Everything is so warm and tender. Their filet mignon is to die for. When they bring it to the table, you tell them you're preference such as medium rare, and they slice it and dice it up for you on your plate. Their buttery rolls are an appetizer we look forward to every year. They melt in your mouth There's so much to enjoy from the salad bar, to the appetizers, to the main entrees, and dessert! If you don't leave in a food coma, you're doing something wrong. 

We were joking around that evening when we told the waiter we were celebrating Zac's birthday, but he ended up bringing him a free dessert, so we decided to sing him "happy birthday" and make the most of it. 

For dessert, I ordered the chocolate mouse cake with alternating layers of white chocolate and dark chocolate mouse. Zac ordered the strawberry cheesecake. His dessert was doused in a sweet strawberry glaze and spelled out "Happy Birthday". They even added a candle in the strawberry. 

Before we left, my dad ordered the men a round of Cognac. It comes in a wine glass thats sits on top of a coffee cup with boiling water. The hot water supposedly opens the pores of the brandy, making for a smoother more enjoyable cocktail. 

We toasted to a night of good times, good food, and good friends. 

This is what we all looked like when we arrived home...

Some made it to their beds, others to the living room floor...lol. 


  1. Ohhh I love Fogo de Chao!!! It has been years since I have been. It sounds like you all had a fabulous time!

  2. Wow, Looks like an amazing meal!

  3. I always have the staying up late problem when we visit family! We always end up getting in town later, and spend a good few hours just talking and catching up! No matter how tired we are, it's always some of the best parts of the trip.


Thanks for stopping by. Look for my response in your email. Have a great day!
