This year I made it a point and a New Year’s resolution to read more books. I was quite the bookworm growing up, visiting the library at least once a week over the summer and winning Accelerated Reader competitions in school. Plus, my grandma was a librarian, so it’s in my blood. This summer I did very well at achieving my reading list – I even started a book club! What were my favorite reads? Keep reading!
I think it’s fairly commonly known that I’m (pretty much constantly) on a diet right now. My vices? Comfort food and sweets, both of which are Southern staples. When I’m keeping away from sugar in the form of chocolate or brownies, I almost always crave a big, tall, cool glass of southern sweet tea (but I prefer styrofoam, anyone else?). So of course, now that I’m getting serious about eating better, I’ve gotta make sacrifices and just cut out the sweet stuff completely, right? Wrong! I’d like you to meet my newest obsession: Southern Breeze Sweet Tea.
I thought I almost made it throughout a whole season of baseball without going to a game, but alas, this was an opportunity I couldn’t pass up! If you live in Atlanta, you’ve probably heard of the Atlanta Braves Postgame Concert Series which is so awesome! The concerts are usually on weekend nights, after the game, for free (!) with admission and they bring in the very best entertainers like Zac Brown Band, Chris Stapleton, Flo Rida and Boyz II Men. This Saturday (tomorrow) it’s the amazing songstress Tori Kelly!
I’m a big fan of Tori Kelly. An American Idol alum, I think she could be one of the most talented artists out there right now. I mean, have you heard her sing? Plus, she seems super rad and down to Earth which I really appreciate it in a celebrity. All in all, she’s the coolest in my eyes and I get to go down on the field at Turner Field and see her live! Yipee!
Not only am I excited to be in the presence of such beauty and talent (and hoping it rubs off on me), but this is the final season in Turner Field, so the Braves are doing it big. I’m a pretty nostalgic person so I’m happy to celebrate in the last few months of this location (all I’ve known since I’ve been in Atlanta!). Oh, and Andy says that this game is a big deal because Dansby Swanson is starting. I threw that part in for all the guys and baseball lovers out there.
