Off to LA!

Stella and I are finally on our way back to LA! Yeah! Oh how I have missed this city and all it has to offer. Namely, delicious food! Plus this is an extra special trip. This is the trip where I bring stella home and leave her there for at least a month. I'm sad she won't come back with me in January, but if the show 'Designed To Sell Atlanta' gets renewed, then we will see! Hope you all have happy holidays!

Amicalola Falls State Park part 3

At the point that I am taking this picture, Stella is taking a poop. Go nature!

Amicalola Falls State Park part 2

This is the view you get from the base of the falls. And it is all of 40 degrees out there. Oy! I must be losing my California mind, freezing my butt off there!

Amicalola Falls State Park

This is what 732 feet of waterfall looks like, and honestly, the picture cannot do it justice. Over an hour outside of Atlanta sits this amazing state park, home to the tallest waterfall I have ever seen. So even though Stella (all 6 lbs of her) and I undertook a 4 mile hike yesterday, we decided to get motivated and see the falls today.

Stella's job offer

Sure helping Santa Claus on the most important day of his year would be an honor for my little girl, but screw him. She my dog! Hands off old man. I'll let you hold her, but you best be on your sled as soon as I take her back! And don't let me see you anywhere near her again, gifts or not! All right, drop the gifts down the chimney but don't let me catch you trying to entice her to the North Pole with promises of grandeur again. You jerk.

Stella is so pissed

It is cold out and since my sister's friend was nice enough to knit a wonderful sweater for her, I had to put it on her. And it is gorgeous, with a turtleneck...that is totally pissing Miss Stella off!

Let me just jump you back into my life.

all right, i have a lot to catch you up on, but i have to go on a rant for just one second. why is it that my DVR, the HD-DVR from Comcast, always cut out, especially when it rains in Atlanta? And for some reason, it only cuts out during the show i am watching, not during the f*cking commercials?! I know you feel my pain.

Stone Mountain

Finally, after about 7 weeks of being in Atlanta and freezing for most of it, I decided, 'hey, I am not going to let this cold weather stop me from being outdoors!' So I pack up my gorgeous dog Stella and we head to Stone Mountain, the largest piece of exposed granite in America. Now it doesn't look big while you're hiking up the mountain, some of it through a pitch of 30 degrees of hell, but thank goodness it was all of 45 degrees out there, because under my 4 layers and fleece, yeah I got some So Cali blood coursing through these veins, I started sweating! And sweating like I was taking a stroll through the gates of hell, hi-fiving the devil along the way. Anyhoo, this is the view from the top of the rock. It is beautiful and makes me realize, Georgia, your peach is flat!

Mushroom ragu

You know, even though I need to chop the parsley more finely, this dish is stupendous! I feel good tonight, mainly because I have a belly full of deliciousness!
