My weekend has been a weekend or nothingness. I wore my lounging clothes (Target yoga pants and form fitting wife-beaters in a variety of pastel colors) all day every day. I made no plans, wore no make-up and opted to do the grocery shopping Thursday instead of Saturday, thus giving me the food supplies needed to play the part of hermit all weekend long. Yes ladies and gentlemen, for the past 2 days, I was Anne Frank, by choice, and I loved it. There is only so much burning a candle at both ends one girl can do before she collapses and I definitely felt like I was tittering very close to the edge of collapse, so this weekend was my opportunity to recharge. Now thanks to my couple of days of nothingness, my house is clean, the mountain of laundry is no more, my dogs are exercised, my e-mail inbox is almost back in control and the dark and baggy circles under my eyes are about 50% smaller. I feel good and somewhat accomplished for someone who planned to do nothing.

Also this weekend I finally got the opportunity to blog some photos from Sherie and Bobby’s engagement party which took place at the fabulous Tantra Restaurant in Atlanta on Valentines night. Ever since their engagement session back in November, I’ve had such a crush on this couple, seriously. They are 100% themselves, radiant and happy. They smile big, laugh hard and absolutely know how to enjoy themselves. This year is their wedding year and even though they are both buried with work commitments and wedding arrangements, they still took a minute to pause, and celebrate their engagement surrounded by an amazing group of family and friends. And I was honored to be there, capturing the evening and getting the opportunity to meet the people that have helped shaped Sherie and Bobby into the wonderful people they are today, individually and as a couple. I cannot wait for their wedding in October.

The stunning Sherie and her handsome, handsome man, Bobby.

Tantra Restaurant was where the engagement party went down and let me just say what a great job they did. The atmosphere, the layout, the staff and the food were first class all the way.

Romantic and intimate, perfect.

I loved some of Sherie and Bobby’s details. Personalized glasses using a photo from their engagement session, hollla! And Tranta’s personalized menu for the happy couple, major hollla!

A few restaurant details. Trust me, the Husband will be taking me back here for dinner.

Some celebration shots.
