Our 1st Mini Vacation - Savannah

So the plan is that on weekends we do not have our girls -- as much as we miss them... I will travel to meet Mr. M for mini vacations as often as we can until this little peach is ripe. Or until the doctors say no more travel!!This weekend was the 1st trip. We headed South to Savannah. It was the week leading up to St Patrick's Day. Wow was that a blast. Of course me not being able to partake in all the green beer was not too exciting but I was quite the trooper. We ate at a Scottish Pub on Friday night and had long discussion about the Irish, the Italians and the Scottish in regards to how they celebrate or Not celebrate this holiday. The weather was beautiful in Savannah -- upper 70's both days. We got up and jogged our 3 miles both mornings. Along the way we came across an underground HUGO Boss warehouse sale for one weekend only. Boy did we luck out. Mr. M had died and gone to heaven. If any of you know Mr. M, he loves to shop and I hate to shop with him, BUT I do it because I love him. Found some amazing deals especially on suits.

It felt like we walked all over Savannah and still did not see the whole city. Saturday night we ate at Casbah Moroccan Restaurant. That was quite an experience. There was belly dancing, henna tattoos, eating with your hands and music. The food was wonderful!! On Sunday we headed over Tybee Island to visit the beach and see the parade. It was wonderful. 1st of all -- Savannah has an open container allowance as long as it is in a plastic cup. Mike thought this was wonderful - Drinks To Go! On the beach we had Pina Coladas (mine was virgin) and sat in a swing like a bunch of old people. I was shocked and amazed at all the people already in bikinis on the beach. Also, quite thankful I was pregnant and not getting myself into a bikini anytime soon. The day seemed to fly by and it was time to take mike back to the Savannah airport to return to his job on the road.Then I drove the 2 hours back to Charleston to get ready for a crazy week of work and activities with the girls. Next Stop Tampa .... to be continued.
