Atlanta Beast Tournament Trip 2021!

Hey hey!!! Happy Monday and Happy March 1st!! Is it crazy to y'all that we are 2/12 of the way done with the year!! Also, this is SOOO true!! 
Today I am so excited to share my trip recap! I hope you guys enjoy!!

*Linking up with Tanya and Heather

Friday 2/19:
Friday morning I got up just like usual, ate breakfast, and got ready! We walked Clara to the bus stop and then I went on my mile run for the day!

Then I worked on school throughout the day and when I was done I started packing! Y'all, I am such a last-minute packer! I will wait until one hour until leaving time to pack! 🀦

I also hung out with Lincoln on my bed before I left!

Dad got home around 2:45, and we hit the road around 3:15! On the way we watched WandaVision Episode 7, and OH MY GOODNESS!! So crazy, right!!?? By now we have probably all watched Episode 8 (I am writing this Thursday) and I cannot wait! After we finished that WandaVision episode we watched Romeo + Juliet (the 1996 version). And I loved it!! It was such a fun movie, and I think I have a new celebrity crush. Before I move on, can we just talk about how cute Leonardo DiCaprio is in that movie!!?? 😍😍😍

Here is the Welcome To Georgia sign!

We got to the hotel around 6:30 and this was the photo that I sent mom to let her know we made it!!  Such a flattering photo, right?? 🀣🀣

Here was our hotel room! Ignore the pile of stuff on my bed!

We were starving once we put our stuff down so we got car-side delivery from Chick-Fil-A! I had 12 count grilled nuggets, a fruit cup, and lemonade! I forgot to take a photo of my meal until I was about to eat my fruit! 

Once we were done I showered and got ready for bed! Then I Facetimed mom and Lincoln to say goodnight!!

Saturday 2/20:
On Saturday I got up around 5:30 and took a just-woke-up photo! Ella knows how much I love my morning photos!! ;)

Dad had gotten up earlier and he went to Dunkin' to get us breakfast! So while he was gone I might have done some jumping on the bed! 

My order was a Large Black Breakfast Tea and a Bacon, Egg, and Cheese Croissant! I know that Natalie from Big Small Nerd loves Dunkin', so I was thinking of you when enjoying it!!

I got ready and had a mini photoshoot before we left!

On the way to the facility!

We had to get there at 8 but we didn't play until 9:30, so in the meantime, we gave each other massages with Baylee's massage gun, played Trivia Crack (that is our team game, we play each other all the time!), and talked! 

I did not take any photos between our first game and the last one of the day, but I will tell you if we won or lost. 
We lost our first game, won our second one, had a break for an hour, and won our third game. 

After our win, we had to ref a game! I love to do the books so I do it most of the time! Harlie was doing libero tracker, so I got to sit and talk with her at the table! We found out that we are so similar!! We are not only the same height and everything, but we love all of the same stuff as well! We had the best time talking! Also, excuse my hair, I was brushing it out while doing the book because we were getting ready to go somewhere! Side note: I took my mask down because I was eating a Z-bar just then!

I also took a selfie with Jessie!

While we were reffing the game, our parents were planning for us to go have lunch at TopGolf!!! We had the BEST time! 
First, we got there and grouped in the lobby. We were getting our bay number when Gracie and KK spotted the famous couple Asher Angel and Caroline Gregory!
Asher is in Andie Mack and in Shazam and Caroline is Tik Tok famous! I am not on Tik Tok so I had no idea who it was! πŸ˜‚ We ended up taking a photo with them on our way to our bay!!

Now I have met three celebrities, Asher Angel, Caroline Gregory, and Jason Aldean!

We got to our bay, and Lottie's big sister Mary Beth taught us how to play!! Here is the photo dump!!
Selfies with Hart!!

The chips and salsa was so yummy!!

And even more selfies!

My swinging photos, not the best swing, but an okay finish!

While we were in the middle of our play we had a cookie skillet or two that was delicious!! We ate it up in about 10 seconds flat!! If you go to TopGolf, you have to try this cookie skillet!

Once our hour and a half was up, we took photos! Lots of photos! ;)

When we were about to leave TopGolf to go to the hotel, I got invited to go shopping with Eliza and Pryceless!! In the car, we talked all about Stranger Things, and it turns out we are all big fans of it!! 
When we got out of the car we saw Baylee, so we met up with her and got to shopping!!

We had so much fun on the carousel! We got into the spinning cup and we went in so many circles and were so dizzy afterward!

We walked around a bit and found a photo booth, but we just took photos from our phones instead!

Then, we went to Francesca's and tried on sunglasses!! 

Next, we found a photo booth where we actually got a photo strip done!

Then we got dinner and headed back to the hotel! Once in the hotel, we ate cupcakes for Baylee's birthday then we played the hand-clapping game Isolation!! We had so much fun! Then, I headed to bed!!

Sunday 2/21:
Sunday was our last day of the tournament, and unfortunately, I only have two photos from that day!! 
Sunday, I got up and Dad got us Dunkin'! This time I had an Oatmilk Latte and the Power Breakfast Sandwich, which is a Veggie Egg White egg on a multigrain thin! So yummy!
I got ready and we packed up all of our stuff! Then we got to the car to go to the facility!

We had to ref first thing, then we had our two games!
We lost the first one, and won the second one!!  It was a super exciting day, but y'all, I took no photos!
After we were done playing and we were heading out, we took a super cute team photo!

On our way home we stopped by Sonic, and then I was out for the rest of the ride home!!

Well, friends, that wraps up my trip to Atlanta! I hope you enjoyed reading! I hope you have a wonderful, wonderful Monday! See you tomorrow!

Hey friends!! Happy Tuesday! Can we just take a step back for a moment and recognize that it is already January the 19th!!?? It has been 19 days into this New Year, and I feel like it all happened in the blink of an eye. It went by so fast. Today is the third Tuesday of the month, so that means it's time for . . .

Friday morning I woke up at 5:04 AM, my alarm did not go off, but luckily I roused close to my normal time! Then I checked my sleep app to see how much sleep I got.  After checking that, I laid in bed and read for 10 minutes. This is my favorite way to wake up and quietly prepare myself for the day! Then I got out of bed and went to the kitchen to make myself some breakfast! I made myself some hot tea, and because
