April, Part 2- Savannah

Second weekend in April was a mini-vacation for myself.
I met my best friend in Savannah and we had a girls weekend.
No hubbies & No kids.
It was SO SO nice & the first time it's been just the 2 of us since we were 14 I think...so yeah...haha almost 10 years.
She lived in North East Florida, and we wanted to meet in the middle somewhere but couldn't decided where, so we picked Savannah. It was a longer drive for me than her, but that's totally fine.
I didn't take many pictures, which I regret, but that's just more of an excuse to go back. ;)
What I can say is that, Savannah is beautiful.
The spanish moss every where is so pretty.
There was a lot that we didn't do, being alone in a city we were unfamiliar with so we just kind of wandered around.
We did walk River Street, it's was neat. Touristy, but neat.
Loved seeing some of the older the buildings.
We also realized that you kind of need more that 1 to 2 days to really experience things.
We only spent one day in downtown, which was Saturday.
Friday when we got there we hung out, rested & went to Chili's for supper & then to Bass Pro Shop (she had never been to one). It was raining & we just wanted to have a laid back night.
Saturday was downtown Savannah/River Street until almost dark, then we headed back towards the room, we stopped to get a blizzard at DQ & stopped in Oglethorpe Mall to go to a couple of stores.
Sunday we went to Bass Pro-again-, Target, & mall & ate some Sbarros before we said our goodbyes.

It was way too short, as always & some people would ask why we went to the mall and stuff when we were in a place we had never been & could exlpore? My answer is we rarely get the luxury of just going to the mall, or grabbing lunch, or dinner, having a few drinks, having girl time, etc.. So we did things that we would be able to to "at home". We had our favorite snacks and junk food & spent time listening to music, talking and dancing, being silly, etc...in our room. haha, and we loved it. 
We decided that any of the tours or anything like that that we wanted to do, we would have to bring our hubbies back with us for those. We ain't really trying to be wandering around an unfamiliar place at night ya know.

So, coming out of that weekend, I can say...
-That I'm proud of myself for making the trip. My anxiety was through the roof to the point where I was nauseous & had to take a stress poop, don't try to act like you've never done that. We're all adults here, lol. That's the furthest I had ever traveled alone, & my first time having to navigate through Atlanta, alone and I did pretty damn good. :-)
-Also, I can't wait to go back to Savannah. It was really fun, I wanna go and check out more of the squares & see the historical stuff. Also wanna go to Forsyth Park & Bonaventure Cemetery (yeah, I'm that weirdo who loves graveyards). There is so much that can be done! If you've never been, go.
It was good because it wasn't too crowded at the time, we picked a good time to go, I think.
-And I miss my bestest already. HATE leaving her. I can't say good-bye dry-eyed, ever.
I'm thankful for our husbands for being cool with us going solo. And I'm glad she was able to come, I know how hard it can be to leave your husband, but I know it was harder for her to leave her babies for 2 nights. But it was just one of those things that we both just needed. ♥

WWII Memorial on River Street.

The Waving Girl statue on River Street
You're crazy if you think that doesn't look good. BBQ Chicken Sliders w/ Fries from Wild Wings Cafe. mmmm
 
  
This is our normal...
 
 

Being that I'm not against going there again, if anyone has any suggestions of places to go & things to do, leave them in the comments, any and all welcome & appreciated. :-)
