Birthday Bash in Savannah

Well, I had a bit more notice about this trip. We left on a Thursday headed to Savannah, GA. What a beautiful drive. I love seeing open fields, farms and animals. Love it! Keep in mind that hubby is very good at keeping secrets, so I had no details. We arrived and checked into the historic Marshall House in downtown Savannah. BEAUTIFUL!

We ate at B&D burgers – I enjoyed a turkey burger and hubby had a veggie burger. It was so good that we ate there 2 days in a row. Then we went out on my b’day date and ate at a Salt Water Grill on the water and we enjoyed tasty seafood. Umm, umm, umm. Of course, I did some shopping at some of the local shops. One that stood out was Nourish, a candle and soap shop. We also dropped by the City Market to shop, it’s more of a tourists type shopping place. Well, hubby disappeared one morning for about 30 minutes and came back with a mountain (yes, a mountain of gifts). But, before I could open any, there was a knock at the door. Who is it? It was a florist from Garden on the Square with a beautiful bouquet of flowers for me. Awwww. Now, back to the mountain of gifts.

Like a kid, I got a lot of new clothes and shoes. Why? Because I recently lost about 15 lbs, and hubby wanted to make sure I looked good. I’m tooting my own horn here – beep, beep! I’m officially a size 6 again! Wooohooo, yeah, yippee! I’m so happy. Alrighty! So, the birthday bash in Savannah was a hit. We even tried out this pizza place where you get to make your own pizza from scratch. Yummy! As you can see we ate a lot of good food. Paula Deen’s, a staple in Savannah, is always nice for good eats, too. We dropped by River Street for candy and more site seeing and ate the famous pralines. They are good!

Here’s a classic view of the many “Squares” that exist on each block in Savannah – small historic parks.
