Friday morning, I flew to Savannah for a childhood friend’s wedding. It was my first trip there and it was fantastic! I met my parents, sister and niece there so it was a half-family vacation! (My in-laws came in for the long weekend to help out my hubby in watching the kids at home.) I had 2 hours of sleep Thursday night so I was running on fumes Friday, but there was no way I was slowing down!
I have SOO many pictures, but I felt the need to limit them for your sake! 🙂
Our hotel room was on River Street. Had a beautiful view!
I didn’t get a chance to do the Paula Deen tour, but I did go by her gift shop and restaurant! (For the record, I DO make some of her recipes!!)
Outside of “The Lady & Sons“…Paula Deen’s restaurant!
I did LOTS of shopping and it was getting warm, so this drink was SO refreshing to walk around with in hand! Strawberry Orange Mint infused water at The Paris Market! (That store was awesome!)
My youngest sister, Danielle, and her daughter (my 4 year old niece, Grace!) went on the trip too! On our way to dinner.
The food down there. Oh my. I’m not a big seafood fan, but I tried a few new things (like shrimp cheese grits??) at “Uncle Bubba’s”, the restaurant of Paula Deen’s brother!
I was itching to get out on a run Saturday morning! The weather and scenery did not disappoint! I think I could’ve taken a picture of something beautiful every 4 steps!
We attended a wedding on Tybee Island Saturday evening. Breathtaking!
My sister, niece and I with my parents! (I also have another sister and a brother!) And no, we didn’t plan on coordinating! LOL!
The reception was at The Olde Pink House. Yet another gorgeous restaurant and the food was outstanding! This is what I ate (it may have been the best mac & cheese I’ve ever eaten) but I also ate off my mom’s plate (pork tenderloin, &sweet potato). I told you I ate good down there!
The beautiful bride, Vanessa!! (She is also one of my faithful readers! She has been working hard for her bridal body and she rocked it in that dress!)
We were childhood best friends! The 2 girls beside me, and the bride, are sisters! We moved away from our hometown almost 20 years ago but still remain good friends!
We left early Sunday morning. Long drive home and was sad to go, but it’s definitely on my list of cities to return to some day…with my family in tow!
Have you ever been to Savannah, GA? I’d love to hear what you thought of it!
P.S. I liked a lot of the food down there, but the Milk Chocolate Gopher Turtles from Savannah’s Candy Kitchen did me in every time. We got one at every turndown of our beds from the hotel. I’m glad I didn’t buy a box because they would probably be gone by now!
