Fab Takeover-Atlanta Style


My special friends, The Fab, recently spent a fun weekend together in Atlanta, GA.  A few of us have ended up there over the last few years.  Most recently, our dear and FABulous friend, Jamie, and her husband Michael moved to ATL. 

We tease about Fab takeovers because somehow several of us have moved to various regions of the country all at the same time.

Around 2007 Jamie and Michael moved to Boston at roughly the same time that we moved to Philadelphia.  Our friend, Terri, was already living in New York.  And at the time our friend, Susan, was in Washington D.C.  We teased then that we were having a Northeast Fab takeover.

Well, now we are having an Atlanta Fab Takeover.

I have already done a few posts about Jamie and Michael.  The posts were about when we visited them in Boston and when they visited us in Philly.

Boston-A Great Visit with Jamie and Michael

They originally moved up north because Michael was starting medical school at a university “in Boston. Well, not in Boston, but nearby. No, not Tufts.”  (I just had to throw that in there.  A little 30 Rock reference.) 

We are so proud of him.  He just graduated.  He matched at Emory for his residency, which for those of you who don’t know, is in Atlanta. 

A FABulous couple, Stephanie and Chad, hosted all of us for the weekend at their house in Powder Springs, GA.  This is one of the first times we’ve had a Fab, plus significant others, sleepover.  It turned out to be so much fun!!! 

The reason we were all together was to have a “welcome back to the south” party for Jamie and Michael.  We cooked out, visited and caught up with each other, ate a pig cookie cake (click the link for an explanation on that one), and attended a Braves game at Turner Field.  I didn’t have my camera so I don’t have any real pictures to share.

Our FAB friend, Susan, did manage to commandeer Judd’s iphone during the game.  I didn’t know Judd’s phone took videos.  The clip below is funny to me because Susan caught me posing for what I thought was a picture…NOT A VIDEO. 

We had such a good time.  By the way, Susan is a pretty funny girl.  You might pick up on that at the end of the video.

Update: Jamie also did a post about the weekend.  You can read it here.
