(500) Days & Chocolate Dipped Cones...Please

The weekend is FINALLY here after a long week of hot temperatures, hard work and lots of life's little happenings. Andi & I were in need of some relaxation and serious sister time so we made our way to the Ballantyne Village Theater to see (500) Days of Summer. I know that posting about a movie is kind of rare for me but I loved this movie so much that I just have to share it with you all. "This isn't a love story. It's a story about love". A movie at the 2009 Sundance Film Festival, this is one of the best movies I have seen in a long time. I am not here to give a full blown movie review or bore you with tiny details about every top reason as to why I loved the movie so much, but if you want some laughs, love and just a great depiction of real life (with some fabulous Hall & Oates music), go see the movie!

A sister date is never complete without a sweet ending, most specifically, ice cream. After the movie we drove to Marble Slab...a Nido favorite. Not only did we indulge in our favorite flavors (cake batter ice cream & cookie dough for Andi and cinnamon vanilla ice cream and chocolate chips for me), but we also took the plunge and had our ice cream in white chocolate and sprinkle dipped waffle cones...quite possibly the most whimsical way to eat ice cream!! We sat by the fountains at Stonecrest for old time's sake and made flirty faces and tried to get the attention of a cute boy running around the fountain...he was 4.

Stay tuned for the last section of bloggable bites from my wonderful weekend with Mark and coming soon...a recap from the wedding of the year! My dear friends Sara and John are tying the knot tonight and I could not be more excited. I am spending the day gearing up for what is promised to be the best party of the year to celebrate a beautiful happily ever after!
