Well, I need to change the name of this post to “I’ve BEEN to Atlanta” because I arrived, the surprise was a big success and Dancing Niece performed 4 routines in one night! It was a busy Friday night and there’s a gigantic “first” for me, and I’ll give you a hint… it’s NOT that I’m in Atlanta for the first time.
After unpacking and settling into our room at the Hyatt Place, Airport Edition, we shuffled off to the convention center where dancers were dancing, judges were judging, and dance moms were hovering. This is definitely not a scene I’m familiar with.
Headlines for tonight are that Dancing Niece did an amazing job with her team, and… OH YEAH I almost forgot to tell you about the other “first.” Have you heard of Beyond Meat? Well, I have but haven’t ever tried this brand until this first night in Atlanta. The hotel had a really good menu (and no restaurant, just prepared right there on the first floor), and a Beyond Meat burger had my name written all over it.
I was shocked how much it tasted like real meat. Crazy! So that was something I’d been wanting to do, but I had no idea it would happen at a hotel in Atlanta, Georgia.
Stay tuned for the next post to find out what we decided to do Saturday. Hint- I wish I had 4 legs for all the walking I did!
