The Varsity on Day 81

22 Feb

Before moving to Atlanta, Luis’ family had told us about The Varsity.

Day 81 and we finally took the time to pull into the largest drive thru restaurant in the world and give this Atlanta landmark’s menu a try.

I am not sure if I am into the whole eating in your car while trying to balance plates and food on your lap.  Probably wouldn’t be our go-to spot but, it was quick and cheap, and on this day.. it worth the trip.


We had the chili cheese dog with cole slaw and a side of onion rings.

Oh! and an orange freeze!

Thinking about it now, I think this was my first dining drive thru… Thanks for the experience and we will see you when we see you!


A Week of Little Things

8 Dec

Recent Things That Made Us Smile

Today makes one week! One week not being home spending time with family and friends, working or loving on our dog, Dudley.  I am sure soon enough one year will pass by as quickly as this first week has. I still wonder when it will hit Luis and I that Atlanta is now our home and not a vacation? And when will I stop missing home? At least there have been some little things that have made Luis and I smile…

  • A puddle that turned into ice

  • A young woman at Atlantic Station wearing bright purple tights
  • How Luis has been organizing everything and doing the laundry
  • All the buildings with Christmas decorations
  • Cutting paper snow flakes with Luis to hang in our living room window

  • Using our awesome cooking pots and pans… finally! (Thanks Mom!)
  • Bundled up little kids that look like mini snowmen
  • The temperature
  • Planning a trip to Zoo Atlanta
  • Getting to use the little dishes I got from a one yen store (dollar store) in Tokyo

  • Target and Ikea being less than a mile from our apartment
  • How Luis can’t sit still
  • The view from our living room
  • Keeping our malanga plant alive by moving it around the apartment so it could get sun

  • Saving money by finding two for one deals
  • Ice skating in the middle of a park
  • The fraternity house dog
  • The Varsity, even though we haven’t eaten there yet… Waiting for Luis’ parents  =)
