Girls trip...

I just got back from a girls weekend with my best friend Marsha!  Marsha and I met in kindergarten, and bonded over shoelaces (I tied her shoes since she didn't know how to yet).  We literally grew up together.  We did EVERYTHING together!  In high school people would mistake us for each other - not really because we looked alike (aside from our hair color, I don't think we did look alike), but because we were always together!  We have been through everything together - so it was just a matter of time that we went on a mini vacation together!  We planned this months ago - we both turned 30 this month (her on Aug 9, me on the 17), which means we have been best friends for 25 years!  Our silver anniversary =)
 
We went to Savannah, GA and stayed on Tybee Island.  I left Garet home with Colin and Suzi (more on that in another post...) and headed out!  We got to enjoy the beach, and it was beautiful!
 
 The sun was out, but it wasn't too hot... there was a breeze... and it wasn't too crowded.

We ate some wonderful food!  One morning we went to The Breakfast Club, which was walking distance from our hotel.  It was so good!  I am normally a cereal breakfast girl - but this was so yummy!  There was also a cute place called Fannie's On The Beach that we had dinner at the first night we were there.  It was good food and good atmosphere.  We sat out on the balcony, it was a really nice night!

Saturday we laid out on the beach for half the day, then grabbed lunch, showers, and headed into Savannah!  What a neat town!  The buildings were awesome!  I love old, historical places like that.
 
There were some really neat stores too!  One was called Savannah Bee Company, and surprise, surprise, they sell honey! But different types of honey!  Now, I tasted a few, and can't tell much of a difference... but still a neat store =)  And I had no clue how good honey is for you.  There were lots of local art stores - which I love.  I don't know a thing about art, but I know I like looking at it!  And some neat jewelry stores.  Savannah is on the waterway, and those store fronts were just as awesome!
 
There were trolleys and horse drawn carriages too.  Very neat place!  That night we ate at Paula Deens restaurant: The Lady and Sons.  It was soooo good!  I even tried catfish!  I am NOT a seafood eater, but I have to say it was pretty good.  Here we are at the end of our meal.

It was such a great weekend!  I think we may have to make this an annual thing!  I loved being able to spend time with my girlfriend, and just relax!  She is a vet and works a LOT so both of us really enjoyed just taking our time getting around, without worrying about a schedule!  It was nice to get home and see my guys and Suzi, of course!
