Finally! Another post!

I have been waiting and waiting for a chance to actually sign on to my computer and write a post!  My friend Becca now has a blog and I see her updates all the time!  If I didn't have vacation pictures to post...I would've already gotten something up!  Ok, well most of this blog post will be pictures...with captions...

 This is a clock at the Pirate House. I just thought it was I took a couple pics...
 More clock...
 It is said that The Pirate House is's a creepy staircase leading to nowhere - if you look closely at the top step - you can see the ceiling...odd.
 Here's the room with the staircase - quaint and creepy at the same time...there's one thing not quite right about this picture...anyone??  ???  Yep - the ketchup bottle on the shelf.
 This staircase leads to the tunnels...that lead to the river.  Pirates were recruited by a rather unorthodox method...get some random guy drunk till he passes out...carry him to the ship through the tunnels and he wakes up a pirate!
 The River Front!  Too bad we didn't go on one of those cool riverboats!  It was windy and chilly that day!
 Savannah candy factory! YUM!  I could spend a lot of time here!  Loved it!  Brian had to drag me out.  Here they put the taffy in wrappers and throw it at you!  Fresh Salt water taffy!  So good!
 You can pick out a tin and fill it with taffy for free!
 Many tourist shops to choose from!
 This is my freezing husband - who gets a little antsy when I spend too much time taking pictures.
 LOVED this place!  It was great - create your own pizza - brilliant!  We left here stuffed! this is the flea market we checked out.  WOW there's not many words for this.  VHS tapes, Giant worthless TVs, guns, arrows, other people's junk - you name it - if it's junk - it was here!  That's what happens when you can buy a table for $20 and sell whatever ya want!
 This was a "boutique" at the flea market. 
 The cow - welcomes you to the flea market.
 The husband and I waiting for a table at Ye Olde Pink House!
 Wow...I'm looking huge!  I must have looked really uncomfy because after 40 minutes they came and offered us a dining spot IN the actual restaurant!  When we got there - they said it was a 2.5 hour wait!
 Our candle lit dining room!  It was called "the office".
 Sorbet for dessert! Perfect ending to a perfect meal.
 Brian posed for an obligatory picture.  I love you!
 I snuck this one in there!  I was merely trying to get a picture of the front of the house - when the guy at the door offered to take our picture could I refuse???
In the airport on the way to get McDonalds, return the car, and fly back home.  

Overall it was a lovely vacation!  We spent a lot of quality time together and had a wonderful time.  We both wish it was longer, but are really grateful for the time spent together!

Baby moon

This might end up being a 2 part blog session. It's after 9pm and my preggo body is fading fast. I am excited to share my wonderful vacation though, so I just had to post!

Friday Brian and I flew off to Georgia for our long weekend together. We really didn't have much of a plan, just to sleep in and eat well! That we did!

Our adventure began a little delayed at O'hare. There were storms in Chicago and storms in Atlanta. We ended up taking off (a little bumpy) an hour late and arriving at 1am local time. The flight was by far the bumpiest flight ever! Even Brian got a little woosie in the last minutes of our descent! Thankfully, I had already taken my morning sickness drug, so I just tried to keep my head laying down and my breathing calm! We picked up our sweet car at the airport...and both of us had a "duuuuh" moment! The agent asked us if we wanted GPS in the vehicle...we both looked at each other and remembered how awesome it was when visited Denver. She said with the car upgrade we could get it for like $20! We jumped on the opportunity! While walking to our shiny Jeep Liberty Brian checked his text messages...on his phone...on his iPhone! You know, the one with Siri?! The one we've had for months now?! The one that gives play by play directions if needed!! Oops! $20 mistake! Oh well.

Ok...well...I didn't get very far with this post because I really want to post pictures and my app isn't allowing me to right now! I will need to figure this out...more to come!

Next stop, Savannah!
