Rich's Pink Pig

So as I sat crammed into the tiniest train imaginable, all I could think of was "man this was way cooler when I was a kid." I snapped a quick pic of the original "Priscilla" train, and my thoughts quickly changed to "holy crap I rode on that death trap disguised as a carnival monorail ride?" The train passes by pictures of kids smashed against the caged windows having the time of their lives and slowly I was reconvinced that the pink pig was an amazing experience. 

Although I was alot younger when it was downtown, I was lucky enough to have a father who worked right in the city.  We took advantage of this during the holidays and a Braves parade here or there.
The Pink Pig's next stop was the Egelston Festival of Trees (does anyone know why this tradition stopped?)  Which was a frequent favorite of my Girl Scout Troop. After tiring out with the madness of ornament swapping a quick trip around in the Pink Pig was a perfect end to the day. Nostalgia aside, I'm glad this tradition is still going, even if it is a bit on the tame side. Oh and of course, I would also prefer it returned to it's former glory downtown (along with that great big christmas tree)!
Sent from my Droid the spelling and grammatical errors will be fixed later tonight!

Property Virgins

So by the time that we figured Dave and I would be ready to buy a house, I was sure that we were going to call HGTV and Sandra to help us in our search. Instead, things turned out a bit different for us.

I would like to thank our neighbors upstairs for helping us get to our current situation. Their disco parties, elephant like stomping, and the flooding of their bathtub, made us want to move out of the hell hole that is our apartment complex. Not to mention the "Smith" like fire alarms at all hours of the day and night. In our search we thought we would continue to rent and stumbled on a craigslist add for "The Stacks." The rent seemed affordable & when I went to the company website, I realized buying a condo might just be a possibility there as well.

No matter what we knew we wanted to move back into the city. We were completely over Dunwoody and wanted to be in a place where we could walk or ride our bikes to everything - even to Turner Field!

The Stacks are condos converted from the old Fulton County Cotton Mill. There were apartments there first (not that great) but they are converting them all into nice condos. We are buying directly from the builder and our part of the project is the second phase. It took the builder a little longer than expected due to the Tornado in March 2008.

So here we are - under contract for a condo at The Stacks and we can't wait for everything to be finalized...fingers crossed!!
