PAPPA- NO MORE- DEAUX (as in $$)

After our blog about the one year anniversary of Lauren's (our daughter) business, Suwanee Spine and Wellness Center, Suwanee, GA, we made preparations to celebrate her birthday on Saturday, September 14, 2013. Birthdays are special in our family - our celebrations usually evolve into "birth-months". Celebrating doesn't have to be a one-day thing.  Rule number two... if there is more than one person's birthday in a month, it's always fun.

 After the Anniversary celebration Lauren's office manager, Lisa, approached us and said "Friday morning we are going to have a small celebration of Dr. Lauren's birthday.  If you can, we'd love for you to be here."  We should have known from past experience with our other chiropractic daughter's (Kristen) office, a birthday isn't something patients take lightly.  At the end of the day, we couldn't decide which celebration was more festive - the one year business anniversary or the birthday celebration for Dr. Lauren.  In just one year Lauren has so many fantastic patients that took time out of their busy schedules to drop by, call, send cards and gifts, and just say happy birthday.
Happy Birthday, Dr. Lauren!

Happy Birthday To You!
On Saturday Lauren chose to celebrate her birthday at Pappadeaux Seafood Kitchen, a cajun and seafood kitchen in Norcross, GA, for their seafood buffet brunch.

That was fine with us because we also enjoy their Louisiana seafood brunch on Saturdays.  After the brunch we headed back to our coach so RV and Chris could watch the Alabama-Texas A&M game while Lauren and I headed out for some serious Atlanta shopping.  It was a productive day and RV and I were glad we could say an early goodnight to Chris and Lauren while they continued their birthday festivities elsewhere!

Birthday Celebration - September 2013
Chris, employed by the Atlanta Falcons NFL football team, got tickets for Lauren and I to see the Atlanta Falcons play the St. Louis Rams at 1:00 pm. at the Georgia Dome on Sunday afternoon, September 15.  RV opted to stay at the coach to watch the game on HDTV.

 Early on Sunday morning, Lauren and I let Chris off at the Georgia Dome, and she and I just happened upon her favorite breakfast place, West Egg, and enjoyed the best Eggs Benedict ever, and also shared one slice of banana bread french toast with maple syrup (Oh my!)  Afterwards, we returned to the Dome to the NFL Experience where we had about the best "people watching" experience ever!  I think that was the end of the birthday experience as well.  We are worn out.  I'm double worn out....I'm a senior.

We had fun and I'd do it all over again, except for the part about being stuck in the elevator after the game.  Perhaps I'll write about that later.
