Shopping in Atlanta
We spent all day driving around Atlanta and shopping. And I can honestly say that I have really enjoyed it. I have had such a good time with my wife. First we hit the IKEA store. All I can say is dang…, that place is huge. I’ll blog later in the week about some observations about the store. IKEA is a Swedish company that has incredibly cool stuff for really cheap prices. We bought some furniture to fix up an office for me in our basement. Currently our church doesn’t have an office (or a building) so I am working out of my home. Most of the time I’m at the desk in the kitchen, but I really need somewhere to spread out my books and study. We bought several bookcases that we are going to use as room dividers and fix up my “study”
We also got to visit the Apple store in Atlanta. I’ve now been to Apple stores in Chicago, San Francisco, and Atlanta. It’s definitely a hands on experience. And it was the first time I’ve been able to get my hands on an iPhone. Now that I’ve played with an iPhone, I think I will be disappointed with any other phone. Unfortunately, since Apple teamed up with AT&T, there is no chance in the foreseable future that I could get on. There is absolutely no coverage in our area. There are no towers so we are stuck with the CDMA phones from US Cellular or Alltel. At least I could get an iPod touch, since it’s the iPhone without the phone.
And then there is the restaurant we went to tonight, Fogo de Chao in Atlanta. It’s a Brazilian steakhouse where they bring all different cuts of meat by your table. All you can eat, and I took advantage of it. I just hope they don’t preach on gluttony tomorrow. It was awesome good.
But now it’s time for the real reason in Atlanta. To see what we can learn at Catalyst. I’m excited to be here and I really want to soak in everything that God has in store for us.
