Oh my goodness! Hello, hello, hello!!! I recently took a little break from blogging but I'm glad to be back. And I hope you all are happy to have me back.
Last weekend I was finally able to take a little trip from home and I thoroughly enjoyed it. Even if it was only about an hour away from home. It's mapped as Birmingham, Alabama, but it's been given the name "The Magic City". I was able to hit some of the landmarks of this large city and photographed most of it. Let's recap...
I made my way into the city mid-afternoon last Friday to spend a fun-filled, sight-seeing weekend with my best friend. I'd already researched some of the city's activities and had everything laid out for a full weekend of adventure.
We kicked off the weekend at Fuego, a funky Mexican restaurant in Five Points South. We enjoyed some tasty 'Fuegorits' during Happy Hour. Stef had just gotten off work and I hadn't had a drink since I don't know when. Needless to say, our margaritas were very much deserved!
After drinks, we headed out to see the movie Tammy. The movie wasn't nearly as funny as I expected it to be, but Melissa McCarthy and Sharon Sarandon have good enough chemistry to make for some good laughs.
First stop early Saturday morning was the Birmingham Museum of Art. It's free to everyone and open Sunday thru Saturday. Even though I rarely get to go to museums, I really enjoy them when I get the chance to visit. It's just a good cultural experience for me!
After an hour or so at the museum, we headed back downtown so I could snap a few pictures of the Alabama Theatre.
Once we finished riding around downtown long enough for me to snap as many pictures as I could, made our way to the dollar movie theater to see The Other Woman. I'm a movie buff and this one will definitely be joining my dvd collection soon enough. Leslie Mann is now one of my favorite actresses. She played her role perfectly!
But the highlight of my weekend was visiting the Vulcan. It's supposedly the highest point in the city and it's the world's largest statue made out of cast iron. There's a platform at the top of the statue where you can stand and overlook all of Birmingham. And you know what? I decided to go up there and take pictures. Worst. Idea. Ever.
I am terrified of heights, so why did I think it would be okay for me to go up there? I have no idea. But I did it. I might have only been up there for about 45 seconds or so, but I can now say I've been at the top of the Vulcan.
Birmingham, you were good to me. Until next time!
