Darn, I'm home

WARNING: This is a long post!
After the wedding on Friday Abra and I headed out for Savannah for a very relaxing weekend that I think we both needed and deserved. Although we both thought we might try eating at Lady & Sons restaurant and quickly got thrown out the window because we didn't wake up on time Saturday morning to get in line for the reservations (you have to be in line by 9:30 a.m to start making reservations). Needless to say we didn't quite make it. Instead we made a nice lesiurely start where we made our way downtown, wondered around, took pictures, and then did something we had never done... took a tour bus around Savannah. The great thing is that it was air conditioned. It was also very informative. We learned all kinds of little tid bits. We also went back in the car to a couple of spots and took more pictures. For example to this one church where it had Jehovah's name on the front...

First the more artist shot...
Then the more straight on shot...

We also went to a few of the shops along Broughton and one of them was this really cool place called The Paris Market, it reminds me alot of Anthropologie. It was so nice that we actually took pictures in there, Abra even took one with me in it but I looked like the other sister so you don't get to see that one.

And this I got off the Clearance Table, I fell in love with it. It reminds of something Jennifer Peebles would get.
After all our ventures we went back to the room to change so we could go eat. One of my favorite places to eat is Bella's, which is Italian. After eating we couldn't decide what we wanted to do so we decided we wanted to get drinks and taking them back to our room. However you try to find a Liquor store open at 10:00 pm on a Saturday night is another thing.
Then we finally found a hole in the wall place, where we got some liquor.

Then somebody got the idea they wanted to go on a Krispy Kreme run. You should have seen the looks we were getting from the people inside.

Sunday

Another sleep in day, then after we finally we got up, packed up and checked out. We headed back downtown so I could get my seafood before leaving town. We went to Shrimp Factory where I got this awesome drink, the Chatham Artillery Punch...very potent.
Now Abra doesn't like this picture but I think it looks very good.

Then we decided to go get some taffy...

And pose behind a cutout...After we finished piddling around here and getting sunglasses, we headed to Tybee Island aka the beach.


I love this shot of me. I'm sure if I analyzed I would find something about it that I didn't like but I really do like it.

Then we had to go home...boo hoo!! Too bad we had to go home.

Ya know, I didn't realize before that you got your days mixed up a wee bit. It's all good though, you know how technical I can get and that is a HORRIBLE picture of me. I am going to ban you from ever taking pictures of me b/c then you put them on the worldwide web for all to see how horrible I look. :P
