Date weekend: Atlanta

Mr. Fox and I love to entertain and we usually use our weekends without Mr. Hudson to do just that.  Date nights are few these days.  Date weekends, the rarest of all,  are SO GOOD.  No responsibilities, no pressure to get ready in under 10 minutes, no one trying to ruin your house/kill themselves while you're getting ready, uninterrupted conversation with your spouse, uninterrupted dinner with your spouse, flirting with your husband in a crowded bar. . . nothing I treasure more these days. Thank the Lord for grandparents who took on a sick baby and gave us a weekend away. It was a blast!  It felt like our newlywed days when we would head to Atlanta on a whim and explore a new restaurant, or new shop, or just enjoy a mini getaway.  

Here's a little about what we did, where we ate, and what I wore. 

Friday night we went to one of Ford Fry's relatively new restaurants, King + Duke. It was delicious. I loved the interiors. My favorite interior detail was these huge drum pendants that had tiny twinkling LED lights that seemed to be in the shape of different constellations. It was the coolest. I asked our waiter about them, but he had never even noticed it before! Maybe someone reading this knows more about those. I'd love to hear about them!

The drinks were fantastic. Mr. Fox had an Old Ironsides and I had my favorite, a Moscow Mule. 

My favorite dish of those we tried was the Maine Crab Salad. It was perfection. Light, citrusy, sweet crab that I could have eaten two more platefuls. It's a must try. 

This is what I wore:

My friend recommended Taqueria del Sol for lunch. It was the perfect shopping break lunch spot! The fried chicken tacos were hands down my favorite. Their salsa was delicious! The green tomatillo salsa was my top pick. Will definitely be heading back to this spot next time we are in ATL. 

Those are just a couple of the spots we tried in Atlanta this past weeked. I'm already ready to go back! Hope your weekend was fabulously recharging!
