I knew I was officially heading home when the main topic on my flight was college football. That's right, cute old men were debating Alabama vs. Auburn, so of course I piped in with my very own "Roll Tide." Southern accents rich with y'alls were blabbing about the SEC's top quarterbacks; it was just what I needed to get me in the holiday mood!
Then, after I landed in Atlanta, my sweet daddy and baby brother (who's an absolute giant at 6'2") fixed my caffeine fix with a quick Starbucks run and grabbed my luggage-what gentlemen. As to be expected, the traffic was horrendous and dinner time was quickly approaching, so we stopped off and ate at one of Georgia's best barbecue joints, OBs. I absolutely loved the waitress; when I asked for tea, she automatically knew I wanted it sweet. Seeing as how I'm a vegetarian, I can't really comment on their specialities, but their fried okra and crinkle fries were pretty tasty. But the real kicker was their decorations.
I finally pulled in the driveway around 8:30, and now I'm sitting in the living room, drinking Amaretto with my momma and sister...life is good. Happy Turkey Day Y'all!
