Spring Break: Savannah Day 3

We hit the stores bright and early yesterday morning because it wouldn’t be a trip to Savannah without carting the littles around all.day.long to shop Savannah.

Our first stop was one of my new favorites – Sweet Tea in Sandfly.  I drooled over these petite hand painted canvases on my last trip and, armed with a Living Social deal, made this mine without a moment’s hesitation.

We lunched at the relatively new Cookie Bar at Byrd’s Cookie Company.  It was a pricey little meal, but wonderfully delish.  Our favorite was the honeycrisp apple and english cheddar salad.

We hit up a number of our other regular haunts but it was the Habersham Antique Market that took the cake this trip.  I left with five vintage Nancy Drew books (positively my most adored childhood read), a aqua grain sack (that will be reappearing quite soon as pillows somewhere in my house), and an old refrigerator basket (that will be holding firewood for our outdoor fireplace starting construction next week *squeal*.)  If I told you how little I paid for the loot, you’d be plum green with envy.

After a few hours in and out of stores, we unleashed the littles for some good old fashioned goofing around in Forsyth Park.

I wrapped up my day with a divine evening out with two very special childhood gals.  We sipped wine, noshed on a variety of delectable eats and talked for hours at K’s newest restaurant, a.lure (facebook / website).  Look for much more to come on a.lure as it’s just been added to my very unofficial official Savannah must-do list!!

One of these days I’ll put together a list of all those “official” Savannah faves.  In the meantime, for more Savannah shopping chronicles, check here, here, here, here, here and here

Before we hit the road for Spring break, we spent an evening at Disney on Ice Treasure Trove.  A collection of Disney bests old and new, our whole crew was enamored by the spectacular feats, classic stories, favorite characters and, of all things, the zamboni.  Among our favorite acts were Alice in Wonderland… …the high… Read More

Science Fair Wrap Up

In case you missed my initial post on John’s science fair project, let me take a sec to catch you up… At John’s school, participation in science fair is completely optional and family involvement is welcomed (obviously a Kindergartener can’t go about this on his own.)  John wanted to investigate if bird’s like their food to… Read More

Real Life

I generally post prettied up pictures with everything ship shape in its place.  But real life around these parts isn’t always so tidy.  Take Tuesday, for instance… In the blink of an eye: When things seemed a little too quiet for a little too long (and by a little too long I mean no more… Read More
